Wedding photography is a lot of things, but it primarily is your first chronicle. After the dress is hung, the flowers are dried, the cake has been eaten and the guests have left, you want to be certain that you will never forget your Day One in your life together.
Please know that timeline planning, pre-wedding date cocktails, vendor recommendations, fist bumps, and hugs are always on the house.
I'll be with you every step of the way from planning the engagement session to organizing a wedding-day timeline - guiding you through the process as you navigate this exciting time in your life!
When we are both excited about working together, when you realize that I share in that excitement for your big day, and when we being to trust and feel comfortable with each other: that’s when the magic happens.
All that mutual excitement just makes the experience so much better and that’s when the best photographs are created.
That is a huge reason why I only take a limited number of weddings a year and do not take every wedding that might come my way. Only if I truly feel that I am the best fit for you, and vice versa, will I agree to be the one there with you on your wedding day. Because, honestly, you don't deserve any less.
We don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! We know that ETP Brides are unique and we work VERY hard to find them! We serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants joyful, genuine portraits of herself & her new groom, then she needs more than just pretty pictures. She needs a joyful EXPERIENCE! I love coffee so a little chat at your neighborhood spot will give us some time to chat about your event and let me learn more about you and your soon-to-be hubby. If we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process! ..
WOOHOO! I You were made to be an ETP Couple! Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! We’ll send you a custom contract with all the details where you can review your package. A digital invoice will follow shortly for you to pay your deposit to make everything officially official! Now that you’re an official ETP Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!! ....
Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. Don't worry - it will not be scary. We thrive at helping our couples get comfortable and forget a camera is in my hand. GUARANTEED. We'll just spend some getting to know each other and tell me about your love story! Give me 10 minutes and you will both be laughing - probably at me! That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together! After your engagement session you’ll be featured on the ETP Blog and will also be sent a little welcome package to aid in the planning process.
Once we’re 4-6 weeks out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! We love creating custom timelines for our couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? We work with our ETP Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images that represent their own epic love story! After 10 years of photographing weddings, we know how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day without the chaos!
It’s here! Your married story starts now! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! This day is going to be a blur to you and so we make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs and Grandma wants while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is our portrait time with the newlyweds, It's a quiet time where you can reflect on the day and enjoy each other's company. After the wedding day, you’ll be featured on the ETP blog in the coming weeks. We like to share our weddings while everyone is still on cloud nine from the big day instead of keeping our couples waiting!
After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of them! We encourage our ETP Couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! We believe that all images deserve to be shown off and shared with the generations. Print those images; add on an album; have a few framed. Show the world your epic love story.
Imperfect grace & authentically joyful
