Some of our most favorite images come from engagement sessions and weddings where our couples were having fun and enjoying themselves. We love photographing unique details, gorgeous sunset portraits and your friends and family having fun at your reception.
Just like with any good friendship, the first step is just reaching out to say hello! Be sure to tell us about yourselves and your vision - we want to make sure we are the best match to capture your wedding. We absolutely love to set up a meeting in person, but if that isn't possible (thanks, Coronavirus) we are happy to meet you virtually!
Set up a time to chat and get to know one another
While we wish we could skip this step since it feels so formal, the truth is that the contract protects both of us. It will outline exactly what to expect in case of you or I need to cancel for any reason. Once you sign and pay your non-refundable retainer, the date is yours! I do not book any additional sessions on your date - it is saved just for you and your partner!
03. Engagement Session
95% of our couples choose to have an engagement with us. It is a GREAT first way for us to meet one another and get comfortable before the big day. Even if you had a friend or other photographer snap some photos already, it is invaluable to both of us to meet you all before the wedding! Plus, we can always get drinks after.
One of my favorite parts about being one of your core wedding vendors is that I get to help you with all the little details! Even if you have a wedding planner, it is helpful for you and I to sit down - with coffee or drinks, obviously - and go over what the day will be like. This is seriously one of my favorite parts of this business and it gets me so excited for the big day!
04. Timeline Planning
Here is what I know - I will bring you coffee in the morning, I will be way too excited, and the day will go by way too fast! This day is about you and your partner being celebrated by friends and loved ones. We are just excited to be there to support you and document that special day!
05. Your Wedding Day
About three to four weeks after your wedding, you will get a fun email from us with all of your wedding photos! From there, I will help you select the best images to craft an heirloom album that you can pass down for generations.
06. Gallery & Album Delivery
Hannah did an amazing job with my wedding photos! She is easy to contact and got back to us in record time, every time. She was professional, but still made the entire process fun! She coordinated the first look pictures beautifully. She gave great direction to everyone in each picture so they knew exactly what she was looking for and gave time for us to be ourselves as well. She got us through the family portraits in great time (which was important to me), but I didn't feel rushed and they look amazing! The bride and groom session was so much fun as well. I didn't anticipate enjoying that portion of the wedding as much as I did, and it is truly thanks to Hannah. She was even willing to do another session with us later in the wedding on the beach which was exactly what I wanted.
Hannah and her second-shooter, Anthony, shot my wedding photos and did an amazing job! They perfectly captured the feel and energy we were going for and I could not have asked for a better experience.
They were so friendly and easy to work with and made us both feel comfortable even though we're not natural photo-takers. I would definitely recommend!
I hired Hannah as my wedding photographer in 2016, almost 2 years in advanced, for my Sept 2018 wedding and when my husband and I finally got to meet Hannah for our engagement photo session in Sept 2017, we knew instantly that we wouldn't have wanted anyone else for this job. She matched our personality's perfectly and we knew that she was going to make our BIG day even more enjoyable.
I knew she had it handled. We could not be happier with Hannah, her fantastic second shooter and the third shooter she brought to help with her for the day since she was injured. We received TONS of pictures and there is not one that we did not like. If I could have Hannah to photograph every big event for the rest of my life, I would without a doubt!
