Congrats, Sarah and Russ!
I want your photos and video to be breathtaking. I want to give you shots that you can't wait to plaster all over social media and that make your friends stop scrolling and see instantly that you FOUND YOUR PERSON and you look STUNNING AND ELATED! They should be candid, romantic, artistic, fireplace-mantel-ready, and elicit belly laughs and all kinds of tears. I want your photos to knock your socks so far off that that you'll decide it's easier to just live the rest of your life barefoot.
And more than that, I want you to have a great time as we shoot together. You'll probably spend more time with your photographer on your wedding day than with each other, and the folks behind the cameras control a good deal of the experience of your day. You gotta find someone you're excited to be around, someone whose energy matches how you want to remember your day.
LET'S SHOOT THIS WEDDING!
I can't wait to create something beautiful with you!
It's my top priority to make sure you feel calm and carefree throughout your wedding, to make your day as smooth and easy as possible. I'll give you just enough homework beforehand so you can sit back, relax, and know that we've got it all under control-- your job is just to get married!
Have any questions?
Of course you do!
I'll start by answering some of the most common ones I get. Have any others? Let's schedule a video-chat date and get into the weeds.
How much of our day will you shoot?
The whole darn thing! I shoot all-day coverage (up to 12 consecutive hours, I'm not counting!). I don't want anyone to have to pick and choose which hours of the day are more valuable for coverage, and I want to tell your story in its entirety. That's what I'm there for--to tell your story--from getting ready until you leave the reception.
When will we get our photos/video?
You'll have your final images within a month of your wedding and your video within 6 weeks from the wedding. I don't want to make you wait any longer than it takes to get them looking perfect in the editing room.
Will our photos be edited?
Of course! Every photo I deliver has been hand-picked, individually edited, and organized to tell the story of your day. Editing and delivery are included at no extra charge, because, well, that's what you're hiring me to do and I'm not here to nickel-and-dime ya!
Surely the video will be edited as well?
Yup yup yup! My base video package includes at 5-10 minute highlight reel, edited in full HD, color graded, complete with audio from your ceremony and custom music selections. Full Ceremony and Full Toasts video add-ons are edited between multiple camera angles, also in full HD.
How do we receive our photos?
I'll send your images to you, fully edited and in high resolution, in a personalized online gallery. From there, you can download them with a single click, share the link with anyone in the world, and even order prints directly from the site.
How do we receive our video?
I will email you a two video links--one for streaming, sharing and posting to your heart's content and one where you can download the video to keep and upload as you wish.
What about printing photos?
It's super easy order prints straight from your online gallery in just a few clicks. The professional print shop I work with, White House Custom Color, always delivers amazing prints. And they come straight to your mailbox, ready to be placed into the perfect frame.
We're in! How do we reserve our date?
Just let me know! I'll shoot over a contract and an invoice for 50% of the total. Once I've got a signed contract and the deposit, your date is set in stone on my calendar, and we're good to go! That's when the fun part begins!
At the end of the day, I just want to have a blast with you two and create some stellar memories for you to keep for the rest of your lives.
