EXPERIENCE

xx, 
Patty

beautiful imagery begins with a great experience 

I don't believe in just showing up on your wedding day, taking photos, and leaving. Not only would that be weird for me, it would be for you too. Think about it, this day that you've planned or dreamed of for so long is finally here. You've invited all your favorite people and loved ones.

Why shouldn't your MI wedding photographer, who will be documenting the most intimate, raw, emotional moments of your day, love, and your people, also feel familiar.


so how do we create this personable experience?

a walkthrough of wedding day

Sneak Peeks within 48 hours! 

Let's be honest you're riding the high of being officially married, and wanting to see photos. That's why I love giving sneak peeks, to hold you over until your full gallery is delivered within 6 weeks of your wedding. 

The End of the Night

however you decide to end your night, whether early or late, when our coverage ends we will double check with you 15-20 minutes before to make sure there aren't any last minute photo requests. Then we will say goodbye. 

Getting Ready

we will arrive 1-2 hours before your first look or ceremony and document all the pre-ceremony love, celebrations and details. 

First Look or Portraits 

I like to break down the day into smaller portions, whether you decide to do a first look or individual party photos we can do some before your ceremony. 

Ceremony

I will document your processional + tons of candids of you and your guest, and don't worry your recessional too. 

Family Photos 

I always grab a list before the wedding day to make sure this part of the day is as stress-free as possible. I am not afraid to take charge so things can continue to move along. 

Wedding Party

I'll document all your favorite people in a classy & fun way to showcase your bonds. 

Couple Portraits 

Your couple photos will be a combination of posed and candid imagery. You'll get a chance to be present with one another after you have said "I Do' 

Cocktail Hour

If time allows, some couples choose to join their cocktail hour and say hi to family and friends. If this sounds like something you'd like, we can work together to make it happen. During this time myself and the second photographer if hired will take lots of candid, fun images of you and your guest. 

Reception

All your favorite people, moments, speeches & dancing. Think lots of candids, fun, unscripted moments.
