The 2022 Wedding Photography Work Process
The following information is my personal work process from the moment an inquiry is received to the moment a gallery is delivered. You are welcome to ask any questions about my work process when submitting an inquiry or through a free zoom consultation.
WHEN YOUR INQUIRY IS RECEIVED
It is greatly appreciated when you provide as much information as possible to understand what your wedding day needs and desires are. After this information is reviewed, you will receive a custom proposal within 4 business days (subject to change based on availability). If you become interested in booking or wish to further discuss my services, we may schedule a free Zoom consultation.
We discuss any questions or concerns to ensure your "complete understanding" of my work process and review the recommended photography coverage that may best suit your wedding day needs and desires.
AT THE TIME OF BOOKING
If a custom proposal is accepted, a contract is e-mailed to be digitally signed and invoice sent to pay a retainer fee due upon receipt via Zelle. The retainer fee is 25% of your total balance. This may differ during promotional offers. The remaining balance is due before the wedding and payed in monthly installments. A zoom meeting is then scheduled to discuss your engagement session and wedding day plans to create a sample timeline. This is a “required” meeting scheduled soon after booking.
ZOOM MEETING AFTER BOOKING
Based on your engagement session vision and ideas, we choose a date, time and location(s). I provide styling guidance and resources to help you prepare. We also discuss and create a wedding day photography sample timeline to ensure you receive the coverage needed and desired. After the engagement session, an estimate gallery delivery time is provided based on the final number of images to be edited and time of the year booked. If the engagement pictures are needed by a specific date, please share this before booking to ensure gallery delivery on time.
4-8+ WEEKS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING
A follow up is done to confirm the details of the wedding day photography timeline. We address any changes needed to be made.
YOUR WEDDING DAY
The photography timeline is followed as your wedding day unfolds. In collaboration with your friends, family and vendors, I will do my best to handle any unforeseen situations to continue providing the best possible photography coverage.
7-14+ DAYS AFTER THE WEDDING
You are sent a gallery of preview images to enjoy while your complete gallery is done. I may share these and any behind the scenes footage via social media. You may be tagged if you provide your social media handle. The same is done for the engagement session.
8+ WEEKS AFTER YOUR WEDDING
8+ weeks is an estimate delivery time for a complete gallery. This will vary from client to client and is subject to change based on the total time of coverage provided, final number of images to be edited and time of the year booked. Spring and fall are the busiest seasons and galleries "may" require more time to complete. The effort to deliver these as soon as possible will be made without compromising the quality and style of my work. However, in the event that the estimate delivery time must be prolonged due to illness, family emergencies or any other personal or business matters, this will be shared as soon as possible. Your final images are sent via a password protected online gallery with immediate download ability.
* The wedding work process may adapt to the ongoing circumstances related to the pandemic affecting clients, their families, my family and myself.

May all take the best care possible, enjoy all the best moments with loved ones and find strength to face any challenging circumstances.
