2019 WEDDING GUIDE

IMG_0932.jpg
 
 

HELLO + WELCOME!

Jamie here - your friend, your storyteller, your advocate. 

I feel deeply honored to be there on your first day as husband and wife. I love photographing weddings, but I love marriage more. When we team up, you’re not just gaining a wedding photographer, but a marriage advocate who is behind you whole-heartedly.

On your wedding day and every moment leading up to it, you are who I stand behind. You're living your story, and I'm going to show you what it looks like, and remind you what it felt like.

I'm not here to make something out of dust. I'm just here to tell your story. And those are the most astounding images of all.

When your day gets closer, we'll work together to create your timeline to ensure everything goes smoothly and there's plenty of time for portraits!

RESERVING DATES // While I completely understand that you're making a ton of huge decisions and trying to get many things done at once, I'm not officially considered hired until the contract is signed and I receive your deposit.

WHAT I WANT YOU TO KNOW MOST

I want to be upfront about something: If you're looking for a vendor - someone who you book, who shows up, shoots, delivers your images and then you part ways - then I'm not the right fit for you, and that's okay. Chances are, you'll likely spend more of your wedding day with your photographer than you will with your spouse - so it's super important to connect and feel comfortable around each other! During our initial chats, I don't want to dive right into details - I want to get to know you first. I want a conversation, not a stiff Q+A. I take each of my weddings so personally and won't settle for being just another vendor - I really do want to be your friend. Because a vendor doesn't have a clue how to authentically showcase your relationship - but a friend does. So if you're on board with getting to know each other and putting full trust in me as your friend and photographer - then let's do this thing!
