We are sure you have a lot going on in your mind with everything that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. You’re planning the day that you’ve been anticipating your whole life and yet you only get one shot at it! By the time you get the hang of it, the planning is over! Our goal as wedding photographers is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Photography is more than just images, it’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When our couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! When we think back to our wedding day, we remember so many amazing moments, but the greatest part is that our photographer was there to help us always remember those moments. They are priceless to us. Our photographer made us feel so incredibly comfortable, it made the day go so much smoother. Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience..... shouldn’t it be fun? And enjoyable? And natural? We think so! Our goal is to not only capture memories for our clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget.
One way we ensure that our brides and grooms enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with our couples. We try our best to make sure we are the RIGHT fit for our couples before they book. A bride and groom should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be EXCITED about the whole process with them! After booking, we love getting to know our clients through an ENGAGEMENT SESSION that helps them warm up to the camera so that they are ready to rock and roll on the wedding day! By the time the wedding day arrives, our clients feel more like friends and that creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography! Now that you know a little bit about our approach to more comfortable in front of the camera on the wedding day, you can continue reading to find more detailed information about THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE!

Your first decision as an engaged couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning. You have to decide what you value most. Is it the dress? The food? The Venue? As a couple that has planned, attended and photographed many weddings, we believe that couples should make their photography a top priority. After the big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse & your pictures.... that’s it! All of that planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours! So if you’re choosing to invest in high quality photography, those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding. We offer high end, professional designed albums. The images are printed straight onto the pages for a long lasting album. This is the perfect ending to The Wedding Experience and it’s a keepsake that you will be showing your children and grandchildren one day!
We are more than willing to travel for engagement sessions! We actually love it when our couples ask us to photograph them in a location that means something special to them! We book our engagement sessions anytime before the wedding and anywhere inside El Dorado County is included in the package.
We average 50 images per hour that we’re shooting. We love delivering our client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want. We believe in freely sharing our work because that is what we would want if we were in your shoes!
We are often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story and the answer is yes! Our main goal right now is securing and saving your date. You can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and we have a good idea of your timeline.
We love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when we will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that we are there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) We teach our couples how to pose, model and interact during their engagement session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from us!
Once we have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that our Wedding Experience is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next step is a booking proposal. We will create an online proposal that will walk you through the package and when you’re ready you can save your date by signing your contract and paying your retainer online.
We are so glad you contacted us! Enjoy this season of engagement and get excited about your BIG DAY because it’s going to be fabulous! Plan and prepare but always remember that at the end of the day, you’re marrying the love of your life and that’s all that really matters. Congratulations on your engagement and we cannot wait to meet you!
