Congrats!!!! So your dream man just popped the question and all you want to do is be his WIFE (pretty exciting right?!) You dream of one day having your kids and grandkids look through your wedding album, and for all your guests to see beautiful portraits and canvases lining the walls of your home and telling your family's legacy.
Congrats!!!! I am SO excited that you're here! You're probably here because your dream man just popped the question and it's now time to start planning the wedding you've been dreaming of since you were a little girl and you know that you want an amazing photography experience to capture it all! Planning a wedding can be chaotic, and let's face it - you're a busy woman! You want to be able to actually ENJOY your wedding day which is why you want the best wedding professionals to help you along the way!
BUT you've never been a fan of big weddings (or it's no longer an option due to COVID) and so you're wanting something laid back and small (yet totally gorgeous!) with your closest friends and family so you can celebrate the beginning of the rest of your life. And girl, I got you!
I specialize in capturing intimate weddings and elopements for couples whose biggest desire for their wedding is to be relaxed and to celebrate their love and commitment to one another. At the end of the day, you just want to have a great time (and photos to match!) and to walk away from the day as husband and wife dedicated to making the most of everyday together with your best friend!
$350/hour (up to 4 hours) *
1 hour - Perfect if you only want ceremony and family formals afterwards. Maybe a few couple portraits.
2 hours - We can capture ceremony, family formals and swoon worthy couple portraits (Book 2+ hours and receive a $100 album credit)
3 hours - Start the day with getting ready photos (maybe even a few bridal portraits!), ceremony, family formals and couple portraits
4 hours - Getting ready, bridal details & ceremony details, ceremony, family formals and couple portraits
*Travel up to 225 miles from Vicksburg, MS included!
*The services listed above are just an example estimation of what I can cover for each hour. We can customize what parts of the day I cover based off of your wants/needs!
ENGAGEMENT SESSION $300
Engagement sessions include 2.5 hours of shooting with unlimited locations and outfits within that timeframe. You'll receive a digital gallery of 45 photos. Engagement sessions must take place within 50 miles of Vicksburg, MS or additional travel fees may apply.
***I HIGHLY suggest all of my couples book an engagement session because it's like a practice run for posing and being in front of the camera on the big day. I teach you how to pose and be comfortable with the camera so your photos are the last thing you worry about on your wedding day because you're already a pro! Plus, it allows us to meet in person/get to know each other (which will help things run smoothly on the wedding day!) and what bride wouldn't want more photos of her and her future hubby!
BRIDAL SESSION $225
Bridal sessions include 1.5 hours of shooting with unlimited locations and outfits within that timeframe. You'll receive a digital gallery of 30 photos. Bridal sessions must take place within 50 miles of Vicksburg, MS or additional travel fees may apply.
***Bridal sessions can be used before or after the wedding day for additional portraits of just the bride (often used as a trial run for hair and makeup on wedding days) or with the groom after the wedding for additional couple portraits.
WEDDING ALBUM $500 (starting price)
I truly believe that EVERY couple should have a wedding album filled with photos from the day that started the rest of their life. This will be the book that gets passed down for generations to come so that all your kids and grandkids can see the legacy you're building and the love that started it all. And THAT deserves to be celebrated and documented in a beautiful way!
The smallest album option is an 8x8 linen "Highlight" album. It's a 16 page highlight reel of the wedding day. You'll have the option to upgrade to the "Full Story" (apx. 40 pages), upgrade to a leather and/or personalized cover, and increase the album size to 10x10 or 12x12.
***When you book 2+ hours of wedding coverage, you receive a $100 album credit.
WHEN WILL I GET MY PHOTOS BACK?
Engagement galleries are delivered within 2 weeks of your session date and wedding galleries are delivered within 4 weeks of your wedding date.
HOW DO I GET MY PHOTOS?
For engagements and weddings, I offer full digital packages. That means that your high-resolution digital photos will be delivered to you via online gallery. You can download, share and print any photos you want from the gallery!
DO YOU OFFER PRINTS?
YES! I offer prints, canvases and albums because I know that on your hardest days of marriage, when you look at your coffee table and see your wedding album, or you look at your walls showcasing all your favorite photos from the day, you'll see more than pretty photos or decorations. I truly believe your wedding photos, especially when printed and cherished, will help you get through anything life throws at you by reminding you where it all started and how much you truly love one another.
CAN I GET RAW OR UNEDITED PHOTOS?
I don't deliver any RAW photos because unless you have professional equipment, you can't even read these files on your computer. I won't deliver unedited photos either. You hire me based off of my edited work and giving unedited photos is like asking your baker to only deliver the ingredients of the cake. I deliver only high quality edited JPEG images and these are perfect for sharing on social media and printing!
DO WE HAVE TO SIGN A CONTRACT?
All of my clients are required to sign a contract with me. This is to protect both of us for legal purposes. By signing the contract and paying the retainer fee, you are locking in my services and are stating that you allow me to photograph the two of you.The contract will be signed digitally so no worries about having to print anything out and mail it to me, just one click and you're done!
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes! I offer payment plans for all of my wedding collections. In order to secure your date, 50% must be paid as a non-refundable retainer. Once this retainer is paid then I turn away all other couples on your wedding date and you officially have me as your photographer! The remaining balance must be paid 30 days before the wedding date or late fees may apply.
WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
I process all of my payments through my online client management system that can take all major credit cards by utilizing Stripe (a secure card processing system for businesses). If you wish to pay by check you may do so by mail, but your date will not be secured until the check clears in my bank.
WHEN DO I BOOK MY AL A CARTE ITEMS?
I suggest booking all services ASAP or if possible, with your collection because it makes planning easier and you don't have to worry about paying anything off after the wedding. If you wish to order an Album you can add it at the beginning to start paying it off with your wedding balance, or you can wait until we start designing it after the wedding. Prints and canvases can be ordered directly through your online gallery system. No products will be ordered/sent to production until full payment is rendered.
WHAT IF COVID CANCELS MY WEDDING?
I know lots of brides are worried about wedding scheduling conflicts due to COVID. If your venue cancels on you, or restrictions are set in place by the state, county or city that result in you not being to proceed as planned, then I will work with you to find a date that I'm available for. Once we find a new date that works for both of us, I will simply send you a new contract to sign saying that you're officially moving my services to a new date and that no services will be rendered on your old date. There will be no extra fee or new retainers paid so long as your new date is in the year 2020 or 2021. If your date is moved to 2022, then there may be rescheduling fee associated.
If your venue cancels on you, or restrictions are set in place by the state, county or city that result in you not being to proceed as planned, and we are unable to find a date that works for both of us, then you will be issued a full refund.
