Joyful, timeless photos that capture connection + authenticity

the TGP wedding experience

01.

step one:

We meet for coffee!

Yay, you're engaged!  Now it's time to start planing your dream day, which includes building your dream team of wedding vendors.  You may not realize it, but you actually spend the MOST time on your wedding day with...you guessed it — your photographer!  If you're going to be spending the majority of not just any day, but your WEDDING DAY, with someone, you should probably make sure you actually ENJOY being around them first!  The couples I work with are fun, laid-back, love all the details and florals and taking photos, but aren't so focused on all that they can't enjoy their day.  They're present in the moment, love each other deeply, and are giddy with joy and excitement to commit their lives to one another!  To make sure we're a great fit, we meet for coffee and get to know each other, chat wedding details, and start dreaming up some fun ideas!  If you like what you see, then we move on to booking!

step two:

Make it official

Nothing makes me happier than hearing that you want to work with me on your wedding day!  I will send you an easy-to-use online booking system where you can build your custom wedding package, sign your contract, and pay your deposit all with the click of a few buttons.  EASY PEASY!  Your date is secured once your contract and deposit are received.  Oh, and expect a friend request from me on facebook!

P.S. Be checking your mailbox for a fun little surprise from me after you book!

step three:

Engagement photos!!

Now it's really getting real — engagement photos!!  This is the part where most brides tell me that their groom isn't suuuuuper excited for photos.  But rest assured, we WILL have fun and your fiance will walk away saying "Wow!  That wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be!"  It all starts with proper planning, which I will help you with!  Before your engagement session, I will send you my engagement style guide, which covers choosing and coordinating outfits, finding meaningful locations, and prepping your man!  Once you arrive for your session, I'll take care of the rest!  I will make sure you are comfortable, direct you in flattering and beautiful poses, and most of all, make sure you laugh, connect with each other, and have fun together!  Pro tip:  make sure to take advantage of being all dressed up and go out for a fancy date night afterwards!

Let the planning begin!

step four:

04.

My number one priority as your wedding photographer is to love and serve you in every way possible!  That means helping you do some planning to ensure that the actual day is smooth and stress-free!  After you book, we'll start creating a custom timeline for your wedding day to make sure that we use your coverage time efficiently and have the best lighting for portraits.  Then about 8 weeks before your big day, I'll send you my wedding questionnaire to get all the info I need from you about your day-of details.  We will also work together to create a family portraits shot list so that we make sure to get every family picture you want!  Believe me, family portraits can get a little hectic, so a shot list helps ensure that we don't miss anything important AND helps us get through them quickly, which in turn means you get more time at your reception with your guests!  After the questionnaire and shot list are completed, sit back, relax, and get excited for the best day ever!

step five:

It's WEDDING DAY!

After all the planning, dreaming, and waiting, your day is finally here!!  Your ONLY job today is to enjoy yourself and SAY I DO!!!  When my second shooter and I arrive, we'll come straight to you and greet you with a big hug and smile, then get to work!  My goal is to tell the whole story of your day, from the details, to you and your girls getting ready, to the husband and wife portraits and everything in between!  I'll work with your wedding coordinator and other vendors to make sure we pull off your dream day!  I'll tear up as you walk down the aisle, cheer as they announce you Mr. and Mrs. for the first time, and shake it off with you on the dance floor.  When your night is over, we'll hug goodbye and I'll promise to post some sneak peeks while you're on your honeymoon!

step six:

Gallery delivery!

WOOOHOOOOO GALLERY DELIVERY DAY!!!  Is there anything better?!  Once your photos are ready, you will receive an online gallery to view, share, and download your images.  With just a few clicks of a button, you can send the gallery to your friends and family members, order professional prints, and download the entire gallery to your computer.  I suggest making it a fun at-home date night by ordering your favorite take-out, popping some bubbly, and looking through all your images!  It's SO fun to relive your day and experience the photos together for the first time!

get photos you'll

love forever

Your wedding day will come and go, but your photos will last you forever.  You deserve joyful, timeless photos that tell the story of your day to pass down to your future children, their children, and even their children!  These images are more than just your wedding photos — they are part of your legacy.  I would be honored to be part of creating that legacy for you.  Think we'd be a great match?  Click below to contact me!
