If you’re reading this you might be a current HBP wedding couple, or hoping to be one in the future – and if so, YAY I’m so glad you’re here! For most of you it’s the first time you’ve booked a wedding photographer, and there may be questions in your mind as to how it works, what to expect, and what it’s like working with me so I am here to give you a quick overview of what that process looks like.


Once you have a date/venue or just a general timeframe/location, head to my website and inquire on my contact form. Tell me all about you and your love and your vision for your wedding day! Whether I am available or not, you’ll hear from me either with my investment guide or recommendations for other photographers.


After looking over my investment guide, if you’re interested in booking with me we’ll set up a video consult call to just chat more, answer any questions and get to know each other a bit more to ensure it’s a good fit!


Given that it’s a good fit, and you’d like to move forward, I’ll send over the proposal. Both you and your partner will need to electronically sign and submit your non-refundable retainer payment to be officially on the books as an HBP wedding couple! After booked, you’ll receive a welcome package with my wedding guide that is packed with tips and tricks, recommended vendors and more to help you as you plan your wedding.


Once you’re on the books, we’ll get the ball rolling on planning your engagement session! I will help with location ideas, outfit tips, guidance on timing and more to help your photos turn out the very best, but also feel like you. When our session rolls around, we’ll finally get to meet and hang and make some magic!


Around 1 month before the big day, I’ll send over my wedding questionnaire that helps me collect some details that will help your wedding photos go as smoothly and seamlessly as possible!


Most of my couples have amazing planners who put together timelines so that every detail of your day runs seamlessly and I highly recommend everyone hiring one! I’ll work with your planner if needed to ensure there is time built in for all the photos that are important to you.


The day is here! Woo! I’ll be there and ready to capture all your special moments.


After your wedding, all your wedding photos will be backed up to multiple locations so that they are safe. I’ll edit a preview gallery of some moments throughout your wedding day and you’ll receive it within 1 week of your wedding day and your full gallery will be delivered to your inboxes in 8 weeks.


After your gallery has been delivered, if the package you booked includes an heirloom album or if you’d like to order one at this point, I’ll send you the initial design and we’ll start the revisions for the design process. Once you’re happy with it, I’ll order it and it’ll be delivered to you. You can read more about the value of physical albums and the process in my blog post here.
