The Wedding Experience
Congratulations, you're engaged!
When you become a BBS Couple, you don’t just get a photographer. You get a planner, a dress bustler, a timeline manager, a water fetcher, a family wrangler, a hair curler, an errand runner, a make-up fixer, and most importantly an advocate for your day. You get someone to laugh with and someone to cry with. Some weddings, I only need to do a few of these things, and other times I’m doing it all. The important thing is to know that I AM HERE FOR YOU. For whatever you need. I want your day to be as perfect as possible and am willing to do whatever needed to make that happen.
Wedding photography is so much more than just snapping beautiful pictures, it is the honor of documenting moments as you begin your life as a married couple. I genuinely enjoy forming friendships with my couples & sharing in their special day. Being the one to capture those special moments on one of the biggest days of their lives means so much to me.
I try my best create authentic, beautiful images because I want your wedding day to reflect your love in every way possible, and your wedding pictures will be the timeless heirloom you look back on years from now. The friendships I create with my couples begin before the wedding day, last long after. I'm not just there to photograph your wedding; your wedding day means just as much to me as it does to you, your family, and your friends. I can't wait to work with you!
I have a streamlined process tailored specifically to weddings in our area, ensuring you that the time leading up to your big day goes as smooth as the icing on your wedding cake! Read all about it below.
The Initial Meeting
I LOVE to meet in person if possible to get to know my couples! If not we can meat via skype or phone call. I want to hear all the details about your proposal, your love story, and your wedding plans so far. I love the friendships I form with my wedding couples before, during, and after their wedding day.
Upon booking, you will receive a bridal booklet with SO much information, from what to wear for your engagement session to an interactive time line for everything from start to finish. This includes everything from when to book other vendors to what to bring on your wedding day and so much more!
The Engagement Session
Let's plan your engagement session! Each of my bridal packages comes with a complementary engagement session. I have both rustic and urban locations I can suggest both rustic and urban, or we could shoot somewhere special to the both of you.
During the session, I will make sure you two look natural, genuine, and beautiful - so you don't need to worry about a thing!
The Wedding Timeline
A few months before your wedding, we will start chatting about your wedding day timeline. Together, we will make sure to follow your vision, and plan plenty of time for the parts of the day that matter the most to you.
A few weeks before, we will have our second meeting where we will meet at the ceremony venue and finalize those important details, eliminating the element of surprise!
The Rehearsal Dinner
As long as my schedule allows, I love coming to your rehearsal! It helps everyone important to your wedding day know who I am and have a chance to briefly meet me. It gives you and your bridal party a chance to practice where to pause and look during the ceremony, especially during the processional and recessional
The Wedding Day!
It's here! On your day of, I'll be there, timeline ready, family portrait list in hand, and, most importantly, so excited to celebrate with you two!
Your wedding day is not just an event I am photographing; your wedding day is YOUR special day, and that matters to me. I will be capturing those special moments, celebrating with you, and working to create gorgeous portraits for you two to cherish for a lifetime.
The Wedding Gallery
Immediately after your wedding, I download and backup all of your images. I will also share a favorite or two from your wedding day on social media - that way when you wake up, you have a beautiful reminder of your special day!
My plans for the immediate future include creating blog, to document your special day with your beautiful story and a small gallery.
Then I will deliver a beautiful gallery of edited high resolution digital images for you and your family to enjoy! Typically you will receive around 50 - 100 images per hour shooting.
