Step 1: The Meet Up.
I want to get to know you! This step is very important to me, as it should be to you! Your photographer will be by your side the whole day, you want to make sure you like them :) A virtual consultation via phone or FaceTime is available with every Wedding inquiry, and is recommended! This lets me know what's important to you on the big day. Photo timeline, and day of details will be discussed.
Step 2: Save The Date.
Yay! You like me! Now its time to book. To ensure the best experience, I only accept a limited number of bookings per year. It is suggested to book your photographer at least 12 months in advance to ensure you get the date you want. Once the date is booked, you will receive a customized email with booking details, link for deposit, reserve your date, and sign all necessary documents. Congrats on being a part of #novaraeweddings !
Step 3: The Engagement Session. (optional)
This session is all about YOU! From the beautiful “Ring Photo” to the laughter and candid smiles in between, this session is all about celebrating you and your engagement. These photos are perfect for Save the Dates, and/or invitations.
Step 4: Your Wedding Day!
The day has finally arrived! You're getting married! As your photographer I will be by your side (and in the background) the entire day ensuring that every important detail is captured. For the portraits I always recommend a designated “gatherer” This is someone know who knows the majority of the family members and bridal party to ensure we get everyone gets captured and we churn through photos as quickly as possible. Leave the rest of the day up to me. I got you.
Step 5: Image Delivery
After the wedding day, you will be featured on social media and/or my website as soon as the following week! I know the wait to see your photos can be dreadful, so I like to give couples the “Sneak Peeks” as soon as I can. As soon as the edited images are complete I will send them over! ( Typically 4-6 weeks later ) You will get an email notifying you your gallery is ready to be viewed. ALL of my weddings come with digital downloads available from my site, along with options to order professional prints. If you got a package that includes prints or personalized USB's, you should see that in your mailbox 5-7 business days after digital images are given.
