After I receive your message, we'll set up a time to hop on the phone and get to know each other!
Since I'll be celebrating alongside of you on your day, it's super important that we share the same vision and goals.
You can tell me what adventures are on your bucket list, all of your non-traditional wedding dreams and desires, send me a pic of your dress or let me know that you need someone to take the lead in finding a super epic location for your elopement.
Don't worry, I know this can be confusing! I'll walk you through the whole process!
Hey there - I'm so excited to learn more about you + your big day!
What's your full name?
What's your love's name?
What's your email address?
What phone number should I use?
When do you want to get married? (Or is your date flexible?)
Do you have a location in mind? (If not, I can help!)
How did you hear about me?
What's the best adventure you've had together?
Is there anything else I need to know?
Once we've determined we're a match made in heaven, it's time to reserve your date!
To get on my calendar, you'll have to submit a signed contract and complete your first retainer payment.
Payments are typically split into 3 parts.
Both your retainer payment and contract can be completed right from your computer through something called a "client portal."
It's super easy!
After you're officially on my calendar, it's time to cross "photographer, cheerleader, location scouter, epic elopement guide, new friend and best light finder" off your to-do list and go POP THE BUBBLY!
Engagement sessions take place on weekdays so that I can be fully present on the weekends with my couples who are exchanging vows and my friends/family.
You'll receive all of the info from me on what to wear, location options and the best time of day for lighting so that both you and your scenery can look their best.
I'll research any photo permits we might need and so much more!
If you want to do a bucket-list session, I'm already beyond pumped to adventure with you, so don't hesitate to ask!
Don't forget, I always suggest meeting up for coffee or a drink before your session to help break the ice!
Before your day, you'll receive a questionnaire.
This is where you can give me all of the helpful info on what is the most important to you, what type of scenery gives you butterflies and what you and your partner are passionate about.
If your elopement location is TBD, I'll do some research and send you a list of recommendations based on the answers in your questionnaire.
After we've selected your perfect wedding location and activities for the day, you'll get a timeline draft.
This will help make the most of your photo experience.
By your wedding day, we'll have all of the details ironed out.
Your only job is to be fully present, show up with an open heart and create the best memories imaginable on your unique, intimate and unforgettable wedding adventure.
I'll be there to fix your hair, cheer you on and capture the moments you didn't even know were happening so you can relive your day over and over again through my eyes.
I'll share previews and send you an e-mail so you know what's next.
I'd love for you to share your previews with friends and family... after-all, if it's not Facebook official, it didn't happen... right?!
Once your wedding gallery is finished, we'll meetup in person or screen-share and create a gorgeous album design that can be passed down for generations.
