Once I get your inquiry, I’ll read over everything and see if I’m available! (The more details, the BETTER! I want to hear your story, your hopes & dreams!) If we’re two peas in a pod, I’ll shoot you some more information, including my pricing guide, what to expect from my wedding experience, and information on how to make it official! We’ll make plans at your fave coffee shop to meet & get to know each other! (OR, if you’re out of town, we’ll Facetime!)
Once we’re officially official, it’s time to have some fun! You & I will plan the best date night ever, filled with a few hours of photos with your love, ice cream, mountain tops, or city views. We’ll dance, listen to music, and to help you prepare, I’ll send over an Engagement Session Style Guide to help show off all your beauty!! Once we’re done, your sneak peek will be up on the RBP blog, and your gallery will be sent straight to your inbox! (PS. Send me ALL the save the dates and invitations! I keep them all! <3)
About a month & a half before your wedding, I’ll reach out & make plans to meet in a few weeks! We’ll schedule your timeline creation meeting about a month before your wedding, and we can even go visit your venue to see your vision! We’ll go over all the details & sentimental things you’d like captured, portrait lists, and family photo lists. The more we plan here, the smoother your day will be!! Chai tea on me while we plan?!! Heck yes, count me in!
Woohoo!! It’s FINALLY HERE!!! The day we’ve all been waiting for! I’ll capture your day, just as you dreamed. We’ll dance, we’ll cry, we’ll cry some more (I’m known by my second shooters for getting misty behind the lens!), I’ll capture all the details, and at the end of the day, all of your planning will be for one purpose- a forever love!
My FAVORITE part! A few days after your wedding, you’ll be featured on the RBP blog! This small sneak peek will feature all of the things that created a beautiful story on your wedding day! While you’re off on your honeymoon, soaking in the rays, I’ll be hard at work finishing your gallery! Once your full gallery is ready, I’ll shoot it to your inbox, where you & your new love can grab some wine & re-live your celebration!
I love being casual & comfortable & building relationships with my couples. That being said, my “style” is modern & artsy, with lots of casual, candid, & prompted shots! (I won’t ever tell you to move your chin down, but I WILL have you dance it out, or give your love a bumpy piggy-back ride!)
HECK YES. I travel quite a bit, and my weddings are all over the midwest! Should you want to shoot in a national park or on top of a mountain or in the ocean? HIT ME UP. I LOVE to travel, and often bring my hunk of a man along with me to second shoot!
Nope! I’ll need a list of family photos, but otherwise, I’ve got a good idea of what I’ll need throughout the day to capture your love! If you have a particular shot you’d like, I can make it happen! Just mention it to me during our timeline meeting!
In my ideal world, I’d always suggest 8 or more hours for a normal wedding day. I feel comfortable that 8 hours gives me time to get all the shots I need to build a story through your images! Elopements vary depending on plans!
You & I meet about a month before your wedding, and go over every detail, from the time I arrive to the time I leave! The more we plan, the smoother your day will go!! We’ll do this over some chai or coffee!
Please and thank you! I’m a hot tea all year kind-a-gal!
Cameras: I carry three cameras with me on your wedding day, so that if anything should happen to one, I’ve still got you covered! Images: I capture every image on two separate cards, should anything happen to one. Then, I back them up on two different hard drives. Once edited, I’ll keep an original & edited copy for myself. So your images are in no less than 4 places at any given time!
Photographer: Apart from a crisis or emergency, I’ll be there to personally shoot your big day! If something happens, I have associate photographers who work for me & shoot in my style. I’ll handle all editing so that their images reflect my style, and nothing impacts your wedding day!
Yes! I am licensed and insured! Make sure that whoever you’re choosing for your day has both! (A lot of photogs aren’t operating legally; if this is you, reach out and I can help you through the process!) Should your venue like a copy of my liability insurance, just reach out! This protects you, your venue, and me, and covers my cost should anything happen to my gear!
I absolutely will bring my flash with me for some crazy dance floor shots! But even for darker receptions, I LOVE capturing how the moment actually felt in your memories, and that includes the ambiance of the room! My camera works well in the dark, too. Want to be my best friend? Bring in all the bistro lights, lamps, and candles!!
Short answer? Nope. My editing is part of the process you’re paying for! So you’re guaranteed that all of your images will be delivered to your metaphorical doorstep as the finished product with beautiful color and light retouching!
Hecka nope. I’ll edit out things that aren’t a lasting part of you (blemishes, stains, etc). But otherwise, we’re capturing your real beauty & the real moments! Let’s practice a little bit of graciousness towards ourselves & celebrate those scrunchy-nosed smiles!
Absolutely! Just reach out and I can send you a few links!! You can also see a few beautiful galleries on the blog!
Weddings are guaranteed by an 8 week timeframe! But unless it's busy season, it’s typically sooner! Woop woop!
This depends on which package you booked! For 8 hours or more of wedding day coverage, I deliver anywhere between 600-900 images.
Fully edited, high resolution images are delivered in a password protected online gallery secured with a download pin! AND, Your gallery is yours foreva! Those who have worked with me multiple times have one gallery with multiple collections inside! (So that all your images are in one place! Easy peasy!)
Yes! Please! I beg you to print your photos! You'll receive full personal printing rights for your photos, AND your online gallery will already be connected to an online print shop to a professional printer I use! You can SUPER easily order prints STRAIGHT FROM YOUR PHONE! Woop!
Definitely not! Once you book & pay your deposit, your price is locked in and will not change!
Of course!! I require 30% down & a signed contract to lock you into my calendar. The rest is due 1 month before your wedding day, and can be split into monthly payments!
For couples, I have a style guide I can send you! Think “complimentary” instead of “matching”. But bottom line, wear clothes you’re comfortable moving around in! The more comfortable you are, the bigger & more genuine your smile! Avoid small prints, and focus on earth tones!
and otherwise working with a photog.! I’m here to answer the ones you hadn’t thought of yet! I GOTCHU GIRL!
