What to expect from your Wedding Photographer

You say “I do,” I’m here for you.

“YOU’RE LIKE REALLY, REALLY PRETTY.”

I’m there to make sure you feel amazing in your skin and that the most authentic and gorgeous version of you comes through in every frame. I’m a pro at bringing the fun and setting my clients at ease in front of the camera with gentle direction and a whole lotta compliments. 

MY SIXTH SENSE FOR MOMENTS

From pulling your family together for a giant portrait to tip-toeing around your guests to capture all the happy tears during your ceremony, I have that sixth sense for when to step in and make it happen and when to be a fly on the wall with excellent photo skills.

PHOTOS MADE FOR PRINTING

Your wedding story is your legacy and it deserves more than getting buried in selfies on your phone’s camera roll. From the frames on your walls to the cherished album on your coffee table, I’ve got you covered with all the printing options you’ll ever want. 

The process and how it all works:

01 LETS CHAT

A free phone consultation for you to get a feel for what it’ll be like working together. We’ll chat about your dreams and visions, and what package would fit your day best.

02 LOCK IT IN

​​Yay! I’ll shoot you an email where you can choose your package, any add-ons and payment plan. We’ll then finalize your retainer and sign the dotted lines to secure your date. You guys are now officially booked!

03 ENGAGEMENT SESSION

If you book an engagement session with me, we’ll get together to plan details, shoot a dreamy session, and get you two the best photos that capture your relationship perfectly.

04 NAIL THE DETAILS

From scouting shoot locations to helping you create a timeline, we’ll keep in touch throughout your wedding planning. I’m always just an email away!

05 THE WEDDING

I’ll show up excited and ready to shoot your day, without missing a beat. I will be on it all day watching out for every special moment so that you can simply enjoy the day!

06 SNEAK PEEK

I know it’s so hard to wait, so I’ll send you some sneak peek photos a couple of days after your wedding. 

07 YOU’VE GOT MAIL

Grab some wine and get cozy because here’s the final unveiling. Hop online to view your final gallery. Let’s relive your big day all over again!

08 ALBUM DESIGN 

We’ll design your album together, encapsulating all your favorite wedding moments. A generational treasure to be shared for years to come.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have a payment plan? 

Yes, $1500 is due when you book as a non-refundable retainer to secure your date. The remaining balance isn’t due until a month before your wedding date. We can split that remaining balance up into a payment plan if you’d like. Most of my clients choose to split it into monthly payments to make it more affordable instead of one large lump sum. We can do whatever works best for you! 

Do you photograph same-sex weddings?

A million times YES!!! LGBTQIA+, no matter how you identify and regardless of how you define your relationship, I’d love to be a part of your wedding day. Love is love and I’m 100% here for it!

Where are you based?

I’m based in Rapid City, South Dakota, but I travel all over the globe to capture love.

Can I print my photos?

Of course! Let’s get those memories in your hands, not just living on Instagram. I love when my clients print their photos! I’ve handpicked my favorite print shops to include in your gallery for easy printing. However, when I deliver your final gallery, you’ll also receive a print release that gives you permission to print them anywhere you’d like.

How will I receive my photos?

You’ll receive your photos in a personalized online gallery, where you’ll be able to share with your friends & family and relive your wedding day over and over again.

How many photos will I receive?

You’ll receive 600-1000+ photos, depending on how many hours we shoot and how jam-packed your wedding day is! You’ll often receive way more than that! I remove all the duplicates and test photos to save you the extra clicking, but you’ll get the rest! I want you to have ample choices when it comes to picking the absolute winners you’re obsessed with to print and share.

How long will it take to receive our photos?

You’ll get sneak peeks asap (typically within 48 hours!) for both your engagement session and wedding day. No waiting around or feeling the need to post a blurry wedding photo from Aunt Karen’s iPhone (not on my watch!). Engagement photos are delivered 4-6 weeks after the magic and wedding photos are delivered 8-10 weeks after your dream day. If you’d like your photos sooner, ask me about the rush fee!

What happens if disaster strikes?

We’re living in unprecedented times and having a plan for disaster has never been more prevalent. I have plans for nearly every scenario and have a list of trusted photographers who can step in if needed to capture your day. I would never leave you hanging without a plan and if you’d like to know more just ask. 

Do you have any vendors you recommend?

Yes, from years of experience in the wedding industry I have come to work with some of the top wedding vendors. After we get you officially booked, my vendor recommendations email is one of the first to go out! From my favorite florist to my go to videographer, I got you! 

Could you imagine getting married in any of these locations? 

If the thought of an overseas wedding or elopement has crossed your mind, I’m here to help you make that dream come true. Take a peek at the countries that I’d absolutely love to photograph a wedding or elopement in! If you’re thinking about any of these locations, reach out and let’s plan your wedding with no travel fees. To be able to travel the world and capture love is one of the most amazing parts of my job!
