Wedding planning can be very stressful and we totally get that. Thankfully we've done this around 80 times in the last 4 years (that' a lot of weddings). After all this time, we've figured out a great process from start to finish. Below we've laid out each step that we take with our brides and grooms so that you get an understanding of what to expect with us before and after your wedding!
You saw our wesbite or instagram and liked our work, that's awesome! When we get your inquiry, we check our calendars to make sure we are free, then we send you our pricing and tell you a little bit about ourselves. Once we hear back that you are interested, we schedule an in person meeting or a phone call to get to know each other a little better. Once you decide that you like us and love our work, you are ready to move on to the booking process!
IN PERSON MEETING OR PHONE CALL
We like to do an in person meeting or phone call with every couple before we officially book. Your wedding photographer is the vendor that you spend the most time with on your wedding day and we really want to make sure we are a good fit before we move forward. Even if you like our work, we want to make sure you like us as people too ;)
BOOKING- signed, sealed, delivered!
If you've gotten to this step, that means you are ready to book us as your wedding photographers, YAY! Once you are ready to book, we send you our contract. After the contract has been signed, we will send you an invoice for the $1,000 retainer fee to officially book your date. In case you're wondering, the retainer fee does go towards your final balance and is non-refundable.
GETTING TO KNOW YOU- within 2 weeks of booking
We send a sort of "getting to know you" questionnaire out to each of our couples within 2 weeks after booking. This questionnaire helps us get to know our brides & grooms stories a little bit better than we did before. We ask about how long you've been together, how you met, how he proposed and little tid bits about info all about you. We may have spoken about these things in our initial meeting, but we ask that you put it in writing, so that we can reference it before your wedding day and as we write our blogs posts about your engagement sessions and weddings.
