Wedding Photography Client Timeline

What's next?

  1. You get engaged and contact me!

  2. If I’m available on your wedding date, you're welcome to meet with me in my studio. If you're from another state or planning a destination wedding, we can also schedule a meeting on the phone.

  3. During your consultation we will get a chance to talk about your wedding and ideas.

  4. If you are interested in products, I could show you my Wedding Albums, Prints & Frames, and Fine Art Canvases.

  5. I will create a custom proposal including all the great things you love!

  6. To book, I require a non-refundable retainer in the amount of $1000 with your signed wedding contract. The balance of your package is due 30 days before your date. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, checks, and credit cards.

Your Engagement Portrait Session

  1. About 6-9 months before your wedding, we will arrange a time to photograph your engagement portraits. The time will vary depending on time of year and use of the images. For example, if you would like to order a guest book or Save-The-Dates, please leave at least 4-6 weeks for design and production.

  2. For ideas how to plan an engagement session, please visit my article for the Top 5 Tips for Planning Your Portrait Session.

  3. During your Engagement Portrait Session we will have fun creating some awesome pictures together.

  4. One week after your session your portraits will be ready.

One Month Before Your Wedding Day

  1. 4-6 weeks prior to the wedding I will email you a "Wedding Day Questionnaire" asking for details regarding your timeline, family formal groupings, and details of your wedding including vendors.

  2. 30 Days prior to the wedding the final balance of your wedding payment is due.

On Your Wedding Day

You will have a blast! I will document your day in artful ways.

Delivery of Images

I promise to deliver your images within 21 days of your wedding. The images will be posted online for viewing, ordering, and sharing with friends & family.
