The Wedding Experience

As you slip into your dream dress, your heart flutters at the idea of him seeing you in it for the very first time, you look down at the incredible symbol of love he chose just for you on your left ring finger and grin. You then glance at your mom, who’s been tearing up since the first pop of champagne for mimosas, and she gives you the same look she’s been giving you all your life. She’s so proud of the woman you’ve become and the man you’ve chosen to commit your life to. You can feel the love and joy all around you, excited about spending your days growing old and adventuring with the person you love most in the world.

This is what I want you to be thinking about on your wedding day.

I want us to work together to create your perfect wedding day and my responsibilities go so far beyond only capturing your love on your big day when you choose me as your wedding photographer! I want you to tell me your thoughts and concerns. Let me help guide you towards making thoughtful decisions. Allow me to help in recommending vendors I trust and admire. Let’s gush about your Pinterest board together!! When your wedding day comes, I want you and your fiancé to worry about nothing else but being present in one of the most magical days of your lives and let me handle the rest.

When first searching for photographers I know how overwhelming this process can be! Trust me! There’s so many amazing vendors to choose from and I want to ensure that we’re a good fit for each other! I want you to be as confident and happy in choosing me as I am to have you as a frient (friend meets client – new term I’m trying out and currently digging at the moment)! Here’s a little peek into the process of becoming an Abbey Leigh Photography wedding couple:

I’d like to know your wedding date, venue, estimated number of guests, wedding party total, theme, etc. I want to get to know you and be excited with you about your special day!! I will also send you a detailed pricing guide that outlines what I offer. I want you and your fiancé to be overwhelmed with joy when it comes to your wedding day coverage! Although I may be biased, I truly believe investing in your wedding photography is one of the most invaluable purchases you’ll be making during the entire wedding planning process and I want you to truly value the investment you’re making!!

2. Meeting or Skype Sesh

Call me old school, but I love meeting each other in person. I just think there’s something special about it! I want to get to know you as people, not just clients!! I prefer to meet over coffee, smoothies, or donuts. Maybe even drinks if we’re feeling fancy?! If we can’t seem to find the right time to come together in person, Skype is also a wonderful way to connect.

3. Make It Official

When you and your fiancé decide you adore me as much as I adore you, we’re gonna take things to the next level and make it official. I’ll send you over my wedding photography agreement, you sign and print, and once I receive your booking fee, it’s a done deal. From there, we’ll get started on planning all things engagement session! Time to show off that sparkle, babe! I’ll also want to get going on solidifying a timeline with you as well! We’ll want the entire day based around…you guessed it – sunset! We’ll work together to make sure we’ve allotted time for every little detail you’ve put so much thought into to be captured!

4. Engagement Session

If you and your fiancé choose to invest in an engagement session, here is where the real fun starts! We’ll work together to choose the perfect locations and outfits and all you have to do the day of is come prepared to show some serious affection. I am very hands on when it comes to posing and guiding you to looking your best so don’t stress if you haven’t been in front of the camera lately!

5. Wedding Day!

Cue the confetti!! It’s here!!! Today’s the day! I’m going to be there to make it as fun and easy as possible. basically consider me an honorary bridesmaid! I’m there to capture your love story from beginning to end, as the day unfolds. Just be yourselves and don’t be afraid to give a little sugar to each other!

6. Delivery of Images

Within 6 weeks, after carefully culling and editing each individual image, I will ship you a perfect little package containing your final images on a wooden USB. Feel free to share with all your family and friends your most treasured images from your special day!!
