YOU ARE LOVE CAUGHT ON FIRE, EMBERS BURNING WARM AND SPARKS DANCING UP TO THE MOON.

• • •

Your wedding day is a celebration of your adventure. A day to be surrounded by the ones you love the most who sustained you along the way. They are your tribe, and we want you to think of us as part of this awesome society of support. I am here for you, truly.

Planning a wedding can sometimes feel overwhelming and confusing, and I want to make it as easy for you as possible. The way I make this process as easy as possible is I ask for you to put your full trust in me as not only your photographer, but as an artist who has an unique vision for capturing love, moments, people and documenting a wedding day. With this trust I will give you my full heart, my unadulterated creativity and nothing but love and care with your dearest memories and the essence of the people dearest to your hearts.

The couples I work best with are the couples who just let me create without any expectations, who just let me fully immerse myself in their day without any direction. They are couples with hearts full of love and openness to my process. Couples who just trust in my vision, let go and run with my style of photography. My style is very hands off, unposed, and natural so I can create images that truly represent your day and the love you truly share. I want you to look at your wedding photos and the portraits of the two of you together, and be transported back to that very day and to have all of those amazing feelings take a hold of your heart all over again so you can see the essence of the love you share together. If my style sounds perfect for you, your day, and you are willing to give me all of your trust then I'd absolutely love to tell your love story and show you just how amazing your love truly is.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

• • •

If we are having a small wedding, do you offer custom packages?

If you are having a small wedding and are looking for less than 4 hours of coverage, please let me know. I’d love to see if I’d be a good fit for your wedding and send you more information. 

 

Can you tell us about your payment schedule?

I require a $1,500 non-refundable deposit at the time of contract signing which holds your wedding date. Your remaining balance may be paid in increments or in a lump sum, as long as the entire package is paid-in-full 14 days prior to your wedding. I will provide you with a receipt via email for each payment. For photo sessions I require a 50% non-refundable deposit to reserve your date, the remaining balance is due on or before the day of your session.

 

Do you use film or digital?

Digital photography is the medium that I love to use to capture your most precious wedding day moments. It allows me to tell your story in a way I love and finish the images with the coloring and look that is true to With Love & Embers' aesthetic.

 

WHEN SHOULD WE EXPECT OUR PHOTOS TO BE DONE?

Your weddings photos will be completed around 12 weeks after your wedding date. For a sessions, photos will be completed in about 5 weeks.

WE LOVE YOUR STYLE, AND ARE LOOKING FOR A FEW TRADITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHS. IS THIS AN OPTION?

Traditional portraiture is something that I do for every wedding. Even though you are considering hiring me as your creative wedding day photographer, I still want to provide you with images of friends and family members that you can pass down for generations, plus parents and grandparents love these images. So I ask my couples to put together a formal photo list so I can create simple, clean portraits of you with these special people in your life.

 

Do you offer additional coverage?

My engagement session option can also be used as coverage for your bridal boudoir session, rehearsal dinner, day after session, or any day after wedding actives that might be planned. I will be there to continue telling your wedding day story, and the hi-res images will be delivered along side your wedding images. There maybe additional travel charges if you are looking for more coverage depending on your wedding location.

 

We would love to hire you! What are the next steps?

I would love to meet you in person at my studio, or via FaceTime/Skype to talk about your wedding day photography and other expectations. It is just another opportunity to get to know one another to ensure I'm the perfect fit for you and your day. After our meeting, and once you send me an email confirmation that you'd like to book me, I will send you a wedding contract, after your contract is signed you can mail a check for the $1,500 non-refundable retainer. This will hold your date so that no one else can book it. That's it!
