What’s The AMW Process?
I know there is a LOT going on as you begin planning your wedding day. My goal is to not just be one of your vendors, but to help make your wedding day as easy as possible, while also delivering a product you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
If you select me as your Wedding Photographer, here’s the process we’ll go through:
Initial Pre-Booking Consultation
I like to sit down and get to know both you and your fiancé! We can grab a cup of joe or meet up for happy hour, whatever is your preference. I can also do a FaceTime or Skype call if that’s more convenient. We’ll get to know one another and I can answer any questions you have.
Sign & Deposit
After our first meeting and confirming your wedding date, I’ll send you a contract to sign and collect your initial deposit.
We can schedule your Engagement Shoot during our initial conversation, or if you need more time to plan and select a date, that’s fine too. Either way, I’ll give you a short questionnaire to fill out that asks more about you and your beloved. We’ll want to schedule your shoot about 6 months prior to the wedding, especially if you plan on using these images in Save the Dates or for your wedding website.
Receive Engagement Images
You can expect to receive images from your Engagement Shoot within 20 days. I’ll send you a link to a client portal with approximately 30-50 images. You have full digital rights to download these files. There’s also an option to order photo prints directly through the portal to make things easy!
Wedding Day Planning
Approximately 2 months before your wedding, I’ll send you a Wedding Day Questionnaire, Vendor Questionnaire, and suggested Wedding Day Timeline. These will help make sure we’re on the same page and that I’ve planned for all of the moments you’d like to have captured.
About one month before the big day, we’ll have a timeline meeting to review the plan I’ve put together based on your Questionnaire and make any adjustments needed.
I’ll set up a short phone call for us the week of your wedding to go through any final details before things get too hectic!
Your Wedding Day
The big day has arrived!! However, since we’ve already planned everything out, there’s nothing to worry about and we can just celebrate! The wedding day starts with photographing the gals getting all dolled up and the guys figuring out how cufflinks work. Then we’ll flow with the day’s events, all the way to the dance party. In between, I’ll capture intimate moments of just you two; formal family portraits; all the details you planned, from the cake topper to the centerpieces; and the crazy, fun moments with your wedding party. I’ll be there with you for all the laughs and all the happy tears so you can remember every moment! The day flies by fast, but I’ll be there to make sure the memories last forever!
You can expect to receive approximately 700 - 1000 images from your Wedding within two months. I’ll send you a link to a client portal where you have full digital rights to download and use all the images however you like. There’s also an option to order photo prints directly through the portal to make things easy!
When you receive your images, I’ll also provide you with information and pricing on album design. Not only is this a great way for you to have tangible memories of your special day, but these make great gifts for your parents! With a variety of options to choose from, I’ll put together the perfect collection of memories.
