From booking your date...through your last dance.

 

01

we meet!

Hooray! Either by email, phone, or in person at the showroom in Nipomo, California.


02

select your package

Decide which photography package is best for your needs, or ask me to design a custom package just for you.


03

book your date

Sign the contract, submit your deposit. Your date is locked on the calendar.


04

engagement session

We will set up your engagement session date and place (I have lots of ideas for a location to fit your style and relationship). This is a great opportunity for us to get to know each other.


05

timeline

I will create a timeline for you, so you can book your hair and makeup. Your family and bridal party will know when and where I will need them for photos, your florist will know when I need flower delivery, etc. Communication brings peace to your day!


06

family photo list

We will create your photo list, specifically of the family photos and different groups.


07

creative photo list

I will attend your wedding rehearsal and design your wedding photo list. This is a creative list of photos, poses, and ideas so we can maximize our time together on your wedding day and allow you to spend more time with your guests.


08

day of your wedding

We have a plan, so it’s time for you to relax and enjoy all of the amazing moments and the people celebrating your commitment to each other.


09

photo editing

Your photos will be organized by events of the day (details, getting ready, ceremony, etc.). I will select the best ones, and edit and enhance them. I will then put them in your online gallery, and they will be delivered to you on a USB drive in a custom case.
