STEP 1. Inquiry

You reach out to me here on my contact page and tell me about your fab wedding coming up!

I will respond to your inquiry within 3 business days with details regarding my availability for your date, my wedding collection options and what they entail. We'll talk about your vision for your wedding photography and your 'style' to see if we're a good fit to work together. Couples often don't realize how much time they will spend with their wedding photographer on their special day, so choosing a photographer that you gel with is very important!


STEP 2. Coffee?

If you're in town, let's grab coffee (or wine!) and get to know each other a bit more for a complementary consultation! Ask me all your burning questions here, and in turn, I'll ask you how you & your lover met and get all the details on your big day. If you're not local to Chattanooga or can't meet-up in person, I'd love to do a video chat with you so we can officially meet and talk.

STEP 3. You want to book!

Yay! We've met, we've decided we're a great fit for each other and you want to move forward and book me as your photographer. *Happy dance time* Check that off your mile-long wedding to-do list and take a nap!

STEP 4. Contract & Deposit

Once we've agreed upon which wedding collection you'd like to book, I will send you a detailed contract delineating our agreement. We'll both sign it, and then I will send you an invoice for your 50% deposit. This deposit is non-refundable, and it officially books me & holds your date!

STEP 5. The Interim

In the months between making your deposit and your big day, we'll exchange a few emails here and there as I check in and see how wedding planning is going and if I can answer any questions you may have. I will send you a detailed questionnaire regarding your wedding day so I can get more of a feel for what it will be like & get down to the nitty-gritty logistics.

About 2 months out from your wedding, I will request a preliminary timeline of your day. No pressure though--this can be just a "bare bones" schedule! We will work together in the following weeks to make a timeline that keeps both the lighting and the time needed for optimal photo coverage in mind.

STEP 6. Seize the Wedding Day!

It's finally here! We both show up to your wedding and CARPE THAT DIEM. With our game (and party) faces on, you float through this epic day and I make you feel like the king & queen that you are. We dance, we laugh, we cry happy tears, and we create incredible photos.

STEP 7. Deliver the Images

In the 10 weeks following your wedding, I'll be meticulously editing and perfecting your photos, one by one. When they're ready, I will send them to you on a personalized, shareable, beautiful online gallery with print-ordering capabilities. Then, you can re-live the best day of your lives forever. Enjoy!
