Here at Purely Made Studio I want you to know exactly what you're getting yourself into when booking with me. I'm here to be your photographer but there are a few other gaps I would love to fill if that's something you could use from me! If you're not looking for a new photographer friend then I may not be your girl ;) It's truly an honor to invest myself into this season of your life! I have a few popular questions and helpful answers below that will best prepare you for what to expect when choosing me as your wedding photographer.
I want to book you. What does this process look like?
To start with, I'd love for you to consider each wedding package and even looked over my editing style to ensure I'm the best fit for you. After deciding that I'm your girl, contact me! To finalize your date on my calendar I require a 20% deposit of the total wedding package and a signed contract. This is only the beginning!
What if I'm unsure which package is best for my day?
No problem at all! I create wedding photo timelines for every wedding which means I have a well rounded understanding of what will fit into each package and what time may not allow. Of course we will chat about what is most important to you. Each day is different and made unique to you!
Engagement photos are next on my list, where should we go?!
Can I be honest? Engagement photos are one of my favorite parts of the process leading up to the wedding day. To me, this session is to celebrate the season that you two are in together. What better way to celebrate than capturing you two in your element?! Is your element at the beach? Maybe it's in another state. Maybe you two are the adventurous type and want to go somewhere you've never been. Let's dream up this session together from the location to the outfits. You'll have photos that will be a treasure to look back on for years to come!
What are Bridal Portraits?
Bridal Portraits are a separate session from your wedding day. Want some variety to your wedding portraits? Choose a different location then your venue! I encourage my Brides to do their hair and makeup trials on the day of this session to be extra confident that you love the beauty styles you've chosen for your wedding day. The best time to do these sessions are when your wedding dress alterations are complete and at least a couple months before your wedding day.
Will I be able to give you a list of specific shots I like?
I will never tell a Bride that I will not use a list of shots she'd like to have. I would encourage you to give me a list of people you want photos with and moments you don't want to be missed and know that I'll capture them beautifully!
A family shot list is something I provide for and require to be filled out by every bride to make the family portrait session go as quickly and smoothly as possible.
