Keep reading to see how THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE works!
1. After perusing through our website & blog...if you've decided you "like the way we work it, no diggity"...Who else Loves that song!?..no, just me?) then reach out to us HERE! (or at the Contact Tab at the top of this page). We can schedule a time to talk about all of the exciting wedding plans & see if we are the perfect fit for each other! My favorite part of our call: hearing about your love story! *ugh, SWOON! I'm such a sappy romantic at heart*
2. After you have decided which package will best fit your needs, I will send you over your booking proposal, It's all electronic - so no worries on having to send anything snail mail to get booked. We will get your date locked in & it's Easy peasy' as puddin & pie! You can have your date reserved within minutes!
3. Now to the fun part...we get to plan your engagement session! Your
e-session is one of my favorite parts of your journey to the altar. It's a great time to get to know each other & plus, you'll see how spazzy I can be when I get a reeeeeally awesome shot of you guys! I also know it's not everyday that you get in front of a professional camera - so I will be there guiding you throughout our entire session & by the end of it, you'll be feeling like America's Next Top Model! Also, I have to say it because there's a high chance you are probably thinking it too: "Chandra, my boo hates taking pictures!" Well, I will tell you that MOST guys aren't the biggest fan of getting their pictures taken...but by the end of our time together, all of my grooms say that they ACTUALLY had a REALLY fun time! So, girls - plan a date night with your beau after our session is over to have some margaritas + tacos to celebrate!
4. Then, your MAGICAL bridal session will happen typically anywhere from 2-6 months before your wedding day. Your hour-long bridal session will bring out the true QUEEN that you are! Bridals are seriously one of my all-time favorite sessions! And we get to hang out again before your wedding day...so, yay!
5. About a month out from your wedding day, I will send you an online questionnaire to fill out at your leisure. I ask you important questions regarding your wedding day so we are 100% fully prepared to capture all of the moments on your big day!
6. A few of weeks before your wedding day, I will assist you in creating the perfect wedding day timeline for photos! After shooting hundreds of weddings...I have 100% found what creates the most ideal & relaxing wedding day for you both. Trust me - this is going to come in HANDY! This is a gift that I love to give all of my brides because it truly makes the world of difference on your wedding day & I want it to be nothing short of magical for you!
7. IT'S YOUR WEDDING DAY! Wooohoo! The day we have all been waiting for has finally arrived & it's time to have some fun. We will arrive & begin shooting your beautiful day. We like to capture your wedding day as it happens organically but we are there to gently guide you to the most beautiful spots for photos as well. We are there until you are wisked away to your happily ever after! My mascara is probably running down my face at this point from all of the happy tears...but it's so WORTH every moment! EEEEK - wedding days are amazing!
8. Less than 4 weeks after your wedding day (and most of the time it's much sooner) you will receive your wedding day gallery that is full of all of the big & little moments that made up the best day of your life. When I tell you we capture it all...I really mean it...we capture it ALL! Your gallery will have hundreds of photos for you guys to look through together & reminisce on. Grab a glass of wine, some popcorn & take some time to relish on one of the most beautiful days of your lives! We will also create your Wedding Album shortly after you receive your gallery & send it off to production.
