wedding guide

If you're reading this, you just booked me for your wedding!! YAY!!! First of all, we're gonna be best friends and I can't thank you enough for choosing me to have such an important role on the best day of your life. We are going to have a BLAST.

I created this guide for my couples to give you all of my favorite vendors, give you the low-down on engagements, and secret tips and tricks to make for the best photos ever!!

engagement photos

Besides an hour of running around in a pretty place, snuggling up and laughing your butts off, here's what to expect!

Your engagement shoot location can be chosen by you, or you can tell me what vibe you're going for and I can give you options! I also absolutely love when my couples choose a location for their engagement photos that's significant or special to them. For example: where you physically got engaged, where you first met, or your favorite place.

What better reason to play dress up? I LOVE when my couples dress it up for their engagements! Nothing is too dressy. Even add a bouquet or flower crown to make it extra whimsical. More of a jeans type of gal? No worries, we will get the most playful + adventurous shots with casual wear too! Or screw it, bring BOTH! I'm here for all of it. If you are having trouble coordinating colors, I have a style guide that I can send you!

Most importantly, be yourself! I cannot stress this enough! I want you to look at your photos and have them show exactly your true self and your love for each other.

first looks

If you aren't doing a first look, don't skip this!! I have some other great ideas for you!

OKAY guys I freaking love first looks but I also love the traditional, walking down the isle "first look." So no matter what you do I'm gonna cry and love it and it's gonna be amazing. BUT.

gearing up for the big day

6-8 weeks before your wedding day, I will send a questionnaire for you to fill out about all of your details! Your venue address, your photo requests, timeline, family photo requests, and list of your vendors! This will help me stay organized and get all the shots you want. It will also help me create a photography timeline for myself and for you!
