The Wedding Experience
What to Expect
We’ve been through the wedding planning process ourselves and know just how stressful it can be. We are advocates for planning ahead especially when it comes to your wedding day.
If you are interested in working with us we always offer a free consultation over coffee (or tea for me) to see if we are a good fit and to get to know each other. Once you have decided that we are the perfect photographers to capture your big day we can get to work!
- To secure your date we do require a signed contract and 20% deposit
Many clients opt to schedule an engagement session (which you can add to any wedding package for $120).
Engagement sessions are fantastic because...
- It gives you and your husband or wife to be a chance to get in front of the lens and get used to us following you around with our cameras
- We get to know each other better
- You get first hand experience of what it is like to work with us before your big day
- You get beautiful artwork of this special time in your life
We photograph engagement sessions on location and outdoors at the location of your choice. We work with you before your session so that we have a good understanding of what your goal of the session is and if you have specific shots you are looking for. We help to instruct you during your session by giving you actions so that your session looks natural and you feel comfortable and not over posed.
After your session
You will receive your edited images in an online Pixieset gallery where you can download, print, and share your images. We will also send you a usb drive with your images for you to keep along with a print release form.
One or two months prior to your wedding (by this time everything should be wrapped up and set in stone) we will meet wherever you like often in the clients home for at least an hour. We will ask you a million questions about your wedding i.e. color, other vendors involved, how many guests you will have etc.
We will also create a timeline for the day with you from when you would like us to arrive to the last dance. We go through a shot list for the entire day. We have our "must get" shots and work with you to make sure that we know what specific shots you are looking for. It works nicely as husband and wife photographers as we often have clients who would like pre-ceremony shots. I am able to meet up with the bride and her entourage and get those great shots of her and the other ladies getting ready and Bryce can get the guys getting ready as well as some fun groomsmen shots.
We like to visit your venue(s) before the wedding day to check out lighting and layout. This gives us a chance to prepare and make a game plan as to where we will want to be at certain times to get the best shots.
YOUR WEDDING DAY
When it comes to your big day we are ready to go and as excited as you are. We have our gear packed, loaded, and ready to set up. I always carry a small bottle of hair spray, bobby pins, small sewing kit, and safety pins; in case of a hair or dress emergency.
With all of our pre-planning and my husband’s great problem solving skills we are ready to tackle your big day. We capture everything from you getting your hair done, first kiss, first dance, down to all of the details and decorations that you put so much time in to. We want to capture everything that we can from your wedding and create beautiful artwork for you.
After the wedding
You will receive your images in an online Pixieset gallery with your edited images to download, print, or share. You will also receive a custom wooden box and wooden USB with all of your images along with a print release form as well as any prints or albums included in your package. We also like to spoil our clients with handwritten notes, teas, and treats!
In this day in age many people choose not to print their images and just use them digitally. We work with White House Custom Colour, a fantastic company that provides quality work with great turnaround times. We have linked your Pixieset gallery to White House Custom Colour to ensure that you are provided with quality printing.
We really urge everyone to print their images large or small. We work to create custom artwork for you and we really want you to value and enjoy your images. So many times computers, USB drives, and tablets come to an untimely demise. Why let your beautiful images go down too?
