Southern California Wedding Photography

Working with me is more than just hiring a wedding photographer.

It’s a collaborative and creative process that starts from the moment you contact me.

Both are smiling and looking at each other, capturing a joyful and intimate moment. This image beautifully represents the candid and film style of Southern California Wedding Photography

The Wedding Photography Process

1. GET IN TOUCH


Do you love our wedding photography and get good vibes from us? Let’s keep it going! Head over to the contact page to find out if your date is still available!

I only take on 15 weddings a year because you need my time both on and before the wedding day. I want to be able to know you, get to hear you, and really work with you. Because you deserve to be treated like a person and a priority; not a number or a dollar sign.

2. GET TO TALKING


I remember reaching out to a vendor for me and Tyler’s wedding and I got an email back that said, “Hi [not my name], I see you’re interested in our services on [not our date].” And all I could think was, “Wow they really do not give a shit about us, huh?”

Obviously that’s not what I want for anyone. So we get on a call and you get to gush about each other and get excited about your wedding. Moreover, you get to see if you like us. Your photographer is going to be with you more than anyone else on your wedding day, so it’s important you like them.

3. THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION


Let’s celebrate your engagement with something that feels like you. We are currently planning a 32 mile hike for one of our engagement sessions. If that sounds like actual hell to you then fear not, because we’re down for anything. We are yours for the day but if you just want a short beach photoshoot instead we’re there!

Besides getting cute photos and having fun, the engagement session lets us get to know each other and learn what works best for shooting on the wedding day. Do you do better with poses, prompts, or candids? This is where we find out. It’s okay if you don’t know how to pose yourself. I don’t expect you to. I’m the least intimidating person you’ll ever meet and there is nothing but excitement from our side of the camera.

4. WEDDING PLANNING


We don’t want to miss anything important to you, so I have a questionnaire that covers everything I need to know about your wedding day. Together we’ll create the perfect timeline that prioritizes what is important to you.

If something happens and things run late or you want to switch things up, we can adapt! And I’m here for you every step of the way before then. Whether you need vendor recommendations, or you just got your dress and need to show someone — my inbox is ready.

5. THE BIG DAY


You’ve got this. We’ve already done all the work beforehand so you can just be present in the moment and let us worry about the photography. Your wedding day will be one of the happiest days of your life, and that will show in the photos.

We’ll be looking out for you, and I want you to remember that this is your wedding. I am all about open communication and if something isn’t working for you or you want to change things up, you can tell me! 

6. SNEAK PEEK & GALLERY DELIVERY


I know you can’t wait (and neither can I) so I guarantee a sneak peek within 48 hours. Though so far I’ve never had anything later than next day.

The full gallery will be available 8 weeks after the wedding. You’ll have access to an online gallery with the full resolution photos available for download.

7. ALBUM CREATION & DELIVERY


Whether you choose to have it made by me or you go to a third party, get yourself a high quality album. “But Amy, you haven’t even printed an album for your own wedding yet!”

That’s right. Because it is truly and honestly paralyzing to try to create an album of your own wedding. So I will take the guesswork out of the process for you, but you’ll still have input on anything you want to add, remove, or change.

Not sure what an heirloom album is? Check out my post about it:

ALL WEDDING PACKAGES INCLUDE:

2 Photographers
Drone Operation
Printing Rights
Timeline Creation

Packages start at $6400

KIND WORDS

“She was a huge help coming up with a timeline, was super communicative throughout, helped us solve problems without pressuring us, and fit in seamlessly with the wedding party on the day of.”

“We also laughed a LOT. We had a ton of people tell us independently that they loved our photographers and that they seemed like genuinely good people, which is so true and speaks volumes to the ways they interact with others.”

-Katie s.
