You got the ring.
You've nailed down your date.
And you've picked the perfect venue.
If I had to guess, you probably turned to Google. Or Instagram. Or The Knot. Heck, maybe all three. And as you scrolled through pages and pages (and pages!) of photographers... it all started to feel veryyy daunting.
And it's no wonder! With 628 Southern California photographers registered on The Knot alone, of course you're feeling overwhelmed!
And not only do many of their sites look the same, but they sound pretty similar too! They all say that they want you to be your authentic self. That they're not going to just take pretty photos. And that they want to be your friend.
So how are you supposed to tell them all apart? How are you going to figure out which one will connect with you on a personal level? And who is going to capture exactly what you want, while also letting you enjoy it all with your family and friends?
Let me cut the fluff and break it all down...
As a professional photographer for 7 years, I know you're not looking for a best friend to take your photos. (You've probably already got one of those!) And it's a given that you want to feel, look, and be yourself on your wedding day. I mean, it's your wedding!
That's not to say that I'm not going to make some jokes. And sure, we'll probably share a few bottles of wine along the way. And it's probably true that by the time your wedding day arrives, it'll feel like a friend is following you around with a camera (because we'll have actually become friends!)
I vow to make your experience a personalized one. With an end goal of making you look cooler than you ever thought possible.
And the best way I know how to make that happen is by getting to know you. Your personalities. Your quirks. And, most importantly, what you're hoping to get out of your pictures on this special day.
So, here's how we'll get started:
Your personalized Experience.
You'll reach out, and I'll respond right away (yes, even on the weekend.) What can I say, I'm excited to talk to you!
We'll chat via email, phone, video, or in-person (whichever is easiest and most comfortable for you), so that you get your questions answered and I learn what you're looking for in a photographer.
I'll prepare a personalized proposal tailored to your specific needs - Along with my professional recommendations.
Your proposal is exactly that - A proposal! It's adaptable. So, if you have any questions or changes, I'm more than open to talking about them.
These are the real moments you'll value forever. These are the moments that help us move forward in life during the good times and bad. These are the moments you wish you could travel back in time too. And these are the moments I'll capture for you.
