Thank you very much for choosing me as your wedding photographer. Its my goal to make your wedding planning and wedding day as stress free as possible when it comes to your photos. Most people have never had to plan a wedding so I have created this page to help guide you every step of the way.
First off… if your still needing to book flowers, makeup, officiant, DJ or anything else:
————CHECK OUT OTHER VENDORS I RECOMMEND———– Make sure to tell them I sent you (for extra special treatment).
Step 1: Decide on photo locations (6-8 months in advance)
A rain location is “highly recommended” as backup and the bride/groom is required to call and book any of these places
Some locations require booking. Some locations are free some charge a fee.
Step 2: Contact me for engagement photos (if applicable)
Engagement photos are a great way to become comfortable with the camera, its also great to get photos taken for displaying on wedding invites, save the date cards, wedding websites, guest books or slideshows.
The best time for engagement photos is approx 1.5 hours before sunset CLICK HERE TO SEE WHEN THE SUN IS SETTING . Fall colors are popular & keep in mind most tree’s are totally bare by Oct 7th
WHAT TO WEAR: Dress Casual in your favourite outfit some couples match colors but its up to you and your style. (We may be sitting on the ground for a few photos)
WHAT TO BRING: bring a hairbrush if your hair is straight. Feel free to bring a prop HERE IS A LIST OF PROP IDEAS
Step 3: Ordering wedding invites or other extras
Wedding Invitations: Should be ordered no later than 4 months in advance at www.empireinvites.ca , and mailed out 3 months before your wedding.
Guestbooks: Should be ordered no later than 1 month before the wedding.
***If you wanted a second shooter for your wedding day I must know 2 months in advance to guarantee availability of him/her.***
Step 4: Decide on a package and meet (1-2 weeks before your wedding)
We can meet up 1-2 weeks before your wedding to catch up, go over your details, and finalize a package.
