I couldn’t be more excited to be photographing your wedding day!
It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know you both since our initial connection — and the opportunity to capture the celebration of this monumental step in your relationship is not one I take lightly. I’m truly honored and can’t wait to see each and every significant moment unfold through my lens!
Over the next few months, we’ll be in touch quite a bit. Truthfully, by the time your wedding day comes, we’ll feel like old friends! And that’s a great thing — because it’s my mission to be more than a stranger with a camera at your wedding, but a supportive friend available to help you feel calm and comfortable so your true spirit can shine through in the final gallery.
After a decade of shooting weddings, I’m all too familiar with how overwhelming it can feel to plan a wedding, so I’ve designed our time working together to be as clear and seamless as possible.
This welcome guide is meant to ensure that you know what to expect leading up to your wedding day. I never want you to worry or wonder what comes next, so that’s all outlined inside this guide.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns, or anything else you may need throughout our time working together. I accept a limited number of clients each year to ensure each couple feels supported and cared for, so believe me when I say that you are top of mind during this time!
It’s time to get you married, [Name & Name]! And you’re going to have the stunning, spirited, and heartfelt pictures to prove it!

With over 300 weddings in my portfolio, I’ve confidently honed my skills behind the camera and in the editing room. But truthfully, what I love most about being a wedding photographer is supporting clients like you through this unforgettable moment in life.
Now that we’re officially working together, you can rest assured that I’m ready and willing to be whatever you need on your wedding day. From directing the posing to juggling family dynamics to taking deep breaths through emotional moments — I’m with you every step of the way.
Thank you for trusting and investing in my services. It’s my honor to walk with you through this beautiful season in life!
Although we’ve chatted about your wedding throughout our connect calls and email communications, consider this detailed overview a go-to guide as you’re organizing vendor processes.
If you’re working with a wedding planner and I haven’t been introduced to them yet, please invite them to connect with me via email to make coordinating as efficient as possible!
Your planner and I will schedule a 30-minute call to connect and chat through your vision, questions, and other notable information. We’ll also discuss a rough outline of the timeline and general plan for your wedding at this stage of the planning process.
WEDDING PLANNER [/or CLIENT] CHECK-IN CALL
Your planner and I will discuss the details for your engagement session. As always, I’m excited and available to provide insight on locations, logistics, and style, as well as provide art direction for the shoot.
ENGAGEMENT PHOTO PREPARATION, PLANNING & SESSION
Here’s where your wedding details will really start to come together! Your planner and I will connect again to get clear on your wedding day timeline and shot list. From the big moments to the tiny details, we’ll ensure everyone is on the same page.
TWO MONTHS OUT
Your wedding week has finally arrived! I’ll be in touch to provide final reminders. Sometimes minor details change last minute, so we’ll also keep in touch about any additional updates throughout the week.
You’ll still be reeling from your big day (or maybe even arriving at your honeymoon destination!) when you receive your sneak peek photos a couple of days after the wedding! Your full and final gallery will be delivered within 8 weeks with all the information you need to make sure you can preserve these photographs for a lifetime!
We’re up and working —
Monday through Friday, 9 am - 5 pm CST
