From the moment I received my initial email from her, I felt comfortable and cared for. I am so impressed by both our engagement photos and our wedding day photos. You can't go wrong with booking Amanda for your special moments.
Absolutely! This is what makes our initial phone call so important. (And fun!) Each proposal is customized just for you. And if you see something in your proposal you want changed (or added) I will work closely with you until it's exactly how you want it.
I have learned that every wedding is unique. And because every couple has a dream wishlist for what they envision their wedding photography to be, I like to book a quick 10-15 minute phone call so I can get your details for a custom proposal. Each proposal is created with your style and needs in mind. After our initial call I will create your proposal and we'll meet to go over it together.
Once you've chosen which package you'd like to book in your proposal (you're provided two to choose from), I will email you access to your Client Portal where you'll sign your contract and pay your deposit. Deposits to secure dates on my calendar are 30% of your package total. Immediately after your signed contract and deposit are received, your date is booked!
I've been in business for 13 years and have posed hundreds of couples. Because I believe that your portrait time will be more enjoyable when you're relaxed and focused on each other, I do my best to work with couples from a slight distance. I provide direction when I see that it's needed, and the best photographs are produced when the couple trusts me to capture them in their element with their fiancé
Once we confirm your timeline, I transfer it to my Apple Watch before we arrive. Once the transfer is made, my Watch will continue to alert me throughout the day to make sure we stay on time. Don't worry about your timeline! Your wedding planner and I will make sure that you are where you need to be as your wedding day unfolds. For more information how I do this, check out this blog post!
I've photographed numerous weddings on days when it was raining. Although it might not be something we want to happen, I can certainly make sure your photographs are still beautiful. The clear umbrellas I keep in the trunk of my car (enough for you and your bridal party) helps with this. For more information for preparing for a rainy-day wedding, check out my blog post, here.
