Where Do We Start?
Great question! Here’s a roadmap of your engagement and the stops along the way where we’ll get stuff done!
I’ll always be available for you to bounce questions off of. No question is too small, too weird, too silly. No update is insignificant. I’m here for you! In the meantime, below are the main highlights to look forward to.
You’ve got a ring on your finger and a fiancé ready to go and we’ve started talking about wedding photography! If you’re ready to get the ball rolling, we will meet up for coffee. I’ll get to know your story, your priorities, and your personalities! You’ll get to ask me all the questions about shooting style, pricing, and other details and see if we’re a good match. This is more of a meet and greet than a seal the deal kind of meeting so don’t feel any pressure.
Let’s Make This Happen!
I’ll send you a contract to sign and you’ll get that back to me with a retainer. (All the details like due-date get explained in our first meeting)
Take the next few weeks/months to continue working through your other wedding plans. I’m always available for your to bounce questions and ideas off of if you’re not sure about the next step or just need someone to get excited with!
I’ll send over a questionnaire for you to look at before our meeting. There will be a few questions for you to fill out and some just to consider before I ask you in person.
9 to 6 Months Before Your Wedding
We’ll plan a meeting for around the time you start working on your day of schedule. This varies widely depending on how much you procrastinate ;) The goal of this meeting is for me to help you seamlessly develop a custom timeline that reflects your priorities instead of just a cookie cutter timeline from a wedding blog. It’s a launching off point for a schedule rather than making final plans.
Three Months Before Your Wedding
We’ll get in one more in-person meeting to really clarify your wedding day timeline. This time, you should have either a rough draft or final product based on our previous meeting and your planning since then. We’ll look over it together and take the next steps to finalize it so we’re all on the same page. Like all of the other meetings, this is totally customized to you and your priorities.
Two Weeks Before Your Wedding
We’re on the homestretch! I’ll give you a quick phone call at your convenience just to double check nothing has changed with the timeline and give you a chance to give me any more notes. I'll also be asking for a family photo list at this time and vendor information so I know who I'm working alongside :)
If you ever have any questions, I am always just a phone call or text away. I’m 100% here to make your engagement as easy as possible
You made it! I’ll be arriving on location a bit early to get a lay of the land, set up my gear, and give you a hug while I introduce myself to your crew. You get to sit back and enjoy all the work you’ve put in to make today happen.
Keep an eye out for a preview of your wedding photos!
In the Weeks After
I’ll drop you a message when I make your blog post live!
6-8 weeks after your wedding, you’ll receive your full wedding gallery and lots of options to share with friends and place your print and album orders through the gallery!
