ALL PHOTOS EDITED
(we average around 600-800 per wedding)
WICKED FAST IMAGE TURNAROUND (3-4 weeks)
the industry average is about 6-8 weeks so we're pretty proud of this number
The little moments, the memories, the birth of children, and all the adventures you two will share as a married couple will build something far more important - it will build your story. However, your wedding day is the new beginning of your story and should be cherished, invested in, and documented in the most personal way possible. I know you've heard it before, but photos are the only thing that last from the day you took so long to plan. Well, photos and possibly a mild hangover.
If you love my work but you're afraid I might be out of your budget, let's talk it through. I was seriously BROKE when I got married so I totally get the budget thing. I try to be as flexible as I can to make things work for you. That being said, I want you to hire me because you love me and my work, not because I had the cheapest price tag.
YOU CONNECT & I STALK YOU
Unless it's the middle of the night or I'm walking the dog, I reply within an hour. Yup. Bam. Ninja like swiftness. I'll then probably check out your Instagram and Facebook. Ya know. Cause I'm nosey and love to know all the things about my couples.
WE GET THE BALL ROLLIN'
We can meet up for coffee or just keep communication via text and email. Ready to make it official? $1000 retainer fee + signing of the contract. Both things are online so it's super easy and quick. We're so official that we debate changing our Facebook relationship status.
HEEEYYY WE'RE BESTIES NOW
We talk all the wedding details. You text me when you need vendor recs or you've found your dress. You tell me my dog is cute. You follow her on Instagram too. We get wine. We shoot a cute ass engagement session.
YOU GET MARRIED!!!!!
Before the day comes, we draft up a timeline and I send you a questionnaire so everything runs super smooth. You look damn beautiful. You cry a little. Laugh a little. We capture it all. We boogie (does anyone say boogie anymore?) on the dance floor. Go outside for some insane sunset pictures. The end? No way. We're friends for life now.
PHOTOS IN 4 WEEKS
I told you I'm swift like a ninja right? Industry average is 6-8 weeks but babe I GOT YOU. Oh and sneak peeks are up in a week or so. You'll get all the photos in an online gallery so you can send the link to aaaalll your fam + friends.
I'll still comment constantly on your social media life. Since you're now an old married couple, you can hang with me + my husband. I'll make you bomb vegan food & we'll all grab drinks. Happily ever after? You bet your ass.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Good 'ole Fort Wayne, Indiana but always up for travel. I shoot in Indy , Chicago + beyond all the time.
WHY SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
Ummmm hello, magical unicorn over here. Not really. But I will give you magical photos and a lot of great laughs. I like my wedding galleries to have it all - the tears, the laughs, the posed pictures for grandma and the unposed pictures that are the epitome of you and your person's relationship. I work my ass off to give you the best damn wedding gallery that you can show off to everyone you know. But I'm also there to have your back during the entire wedding process. Need vendors? I'll give you a whole dang list. Need someone to keep you on a timeline for the day? Absolutely. Need me to put out a fire? I've actually done that. Want the best third wheel ever and party with a friend on your wedding day instead of just a stranger with a large camera in your face? Heeeyyy that's me!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WEDDINGS?
Legally/paying taxes- 3 years. Before that - a few weddings here and there for a few years to pay for college. All in all I think I'm on year 5 with 100 + weddings under my belt.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Heck yes. And I am the BOSS of finding crazy travel deals and cheap flights. Meaning we can probably do an awesome engagement session in the mountains for a few hundred bucks if we try. Oh, also I'm all about those destination weddings and elopements. Let's do it.
DO WE HAVE TO MEET IN PERSON?
Up to you! I know wedding planning is a full time job and life is crazy. We can meet in person to discuss details or we can stick to email, text, or Facetime. Your call!
WHAT'S IT TAKE TO BOOK YOU?
$1000 down + electronic signing of a contract. Boom. Done.
HOW DO I MAKE PAYMENTS?
In a personal, fancy-schmancy client portal. You can pay your balance via debit/credit or I'll give you my home address to mail a check.
WHEN'S MY BALANCE DUE?
Technically two weeks before the wedding but we can chat and set up a payment plan so you can do smaller portioned payments throughout your engagement.
WHEN DO WE BOOK?
As soon as possible! We usually book up 12-14ish months in advance but you never know when your date might be swiped by someone else if you're not hustling!
HOW'S THE WEDDING DAY WORK FOR YOU?
I typically like to get there about 1.5 hours before the bride puts on her dress. I'll capture details, finishing touches of hair & makeup, the guys hanging out drinking beer, etc. I'm a fly on the wall the whole day until it's time to rally the troops and knock out bridal party pictures + family formals. We try to ride the line of letting things happen naturally and documenting how the day really is + giving direction when needed. We let the DJ do his thing during the reception and try to capture all the blackmail-worthy dancing photos your hearts desire. Also, we love taking couples out for a few sunset photos
YOU'RE MORE UNPOSED. WHAT ABOUT FAMILY FORMALS?
Um YES. We gotta get grandma her Christmas card. We usually suggest having grandparents, siblings, and parents in the formal pictures. Usually we do this right after the ceremony and can accomplish all you need within 15-20 minutes so it doesn't take up too much time.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I GET?
I give you ALL of them minus the closed eyed, blurry, test shot, duplicate sort of stuff. I average about 500-800 a wedding but have exceeded 1000 several times!
WHATS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
I pride myself on finishing your photos in about 3-4 weeks (half the time of the industry average). Sneak peeks are usually delivered within a week so you have some to obsess over while you wait!
HOW ARE MY PHOTOS DELIVERED?
You get all of your engagement and wedding photos via a personal online gallery. All the photos download straight to your computer. You're provided with a PIN number so no creepers can download your photos off the internet. Gallery stays up for about a year but I encourage backups to hard drives and computers.
WHAT ABOUT A PRINT RELEASE?
You get one! You and friends and family can print from anywhere you want! You can also order prints directly from the gallery and the photos are super high-quality and top notch.
