Wedding day photography
This is when the magic begins! I incorporate all of your details into my standard wedding workflow, capturing candid moments and all the beauty and emotion expressed throughout the day. My wedding day photography workflow goes something like this:
- Pre-ceremony: Getting ready shots, the invitations, the flowers, the venue, first look.
- Ceremony: Reaction of couple, and various angles of the venue + key moments.
- Formal Portraits: Bridal portrait, couples portrait, bridal party, family portraits
- The Party: Table decor, the cake, the favors, the flowers, and friends & family having fun!

Final Digital Gallery // Around 4 weeks after your wedding, your final gallery will be delivered. Once you login, mark your favorites and enjoy free web-size downloads. Limited hi-res downloads are based on the package that you purchased.
Heirloom Quality Print Products // Beautiful, customizable products such as albums, canvases, and gifts will be customized online and available inside of your gallery. I review designs prior to submitting them to the printer to ensure the highest quality. Printed products are optional, but are an important part of the wedding experience and make a great gift for your family.
