I understand that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. That is why I have a thorough process to ensure that I capture all of the special moments and create memories that will last a lifetime.

      My process starts with an initial meeting, either online or offline, where I will discuss your vision and get to know each other better. Once you decide to book with me, I will provide you with a prepayment and agreement to secure your date.

      The planning stage is crucial to ensure that everything goes smoothly on your wedding day. I will work with you to create a timeline and shot list, so that I capture all of the moments that are important to you.

      Before your wedding day, I will also have an engagement session. This will allow us to get to know each other better, and for you to become more comfortable in front of the camera. It's also a great opportunity to capture some beautiful and natural photos of you both.

       On your wedding day, I will be there to capture all of the special moments, from getting ready to the first dance. I will work discreetly, ensuring that I capture all of the candid moments as well as the more traditional posed shots.

        Once I have finished editing your photos, I will provide them to you in a timely manner.

         If you would like an album, I will work with you to create a beautiful and personalized album that tells the story of your special day.

         I pride my selves on my process, which ensures that I provide you with beautiful and timeless photos that you will treasure forever.

Essential tips for your Wedding Day

          Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Your special day is a celebration of love,

           and I understand how important it is to capture every moment. As a professional wedding photographer,

         I have gathered some essential tips to help you make the most out of your wedding day photography.

Hire a reliable Wedding Planner

Consider hiring a wedding planner to help with the details and logistics of your wedding day. This will help you stay organized and reduce stress.

2 Plan your timeline carefully

A well-planned timeline ensures that there is enough time for photography without feeling rushed. Work with your wedding planner or photographer to plan the day's events, taking into account the best lighting conditions for your photographs.

3 Consider doing a first look

A first look is a private moment where the bride and groom see each other for the first time before the ceremony. This is a great opportunity for intimate photographs and allows for a smoother transition between the ceremony and reception.

4 Opt for natural light

Natural light is a wedding photographer's best friend. Whenever possible, try to schedule your wedding during the day to take advantage of natural light. If your wedding is at night, make sure to have adequate lighting to capture the best images.

Choose a beautiful getting ready location

Your getting ready location can add to the overall aesthetic of your wedding photos. Look for a location with ample natural light and neutral decor to provide a beautiful backdrop for your getting ready shots.

Having a ceremony without cell phones

Having a cell phone-free ceremony can be a great way to ensure that your special day is focused on the two of you and your guests. While it may seem tempting to have your guests capture every moment of the day with their phones, it can actually detract from the experience.

When guests are constantly taking photos and checking their phones, they're not fully present in the moment. This can be a distraction not only for them, but also for the couple, the officiant, and anyone else involved in the ceremony.

In addition, cell phones can often get in the way of professional photographers and videographers who are trying to capture the day for you. When guests are holding up their phones or trying to get the perfect shot, they can block important moments or take away from the ambiance of the day.

Have a backup plan

No matter how much you plan, there's always the possibility of something going wrong. Have a backup plan in case of bad weather, transportation issues, or any other unforeseen circumstances.

Consider Lighting

Lighting can have a big impact on the look and feel of your wedding day. Consider adding candles or string lights to create a romantic and intimate atmosphere.

Paying attention to details

Pay attention to the details of your wedding day. From the table settings to the floral arrangements, every detail can add to the overall atmosphere and experience of your wedding. Consider hiring a professional wedding planner or coordinator to help you with the details and ensure that everything runs smoothly.

10 Trust your photographer

Your photographer is there to capture all the special moments of your day, so trust them to do their job. Relax and enjoy the moment, and let your

11 Enjoy the Moment

Finally, remember to enjoy the moment and take it all in. Your wedding day will be over before you know it, so take the time to savor each moment and create lasting memories.

sees themselves, telling their story

and capturing their authentic emotions."
