I'm so very honored that you are considering me to be a part of your big day. Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions you'll make in your wedding planning. You're not only choosing someone that will be by your side during your wedding but also someone that will straighten up loose bobby pins, check your teeth and genuinely calm your spirits. My job as a photographer is to turn your happiness into tangible memories that will become family heirlooms. I don't want your memories to live on a hard drive. I want them to live in your hands.
1. INQUIRY & CONSULTATION
Getting to know my couples is so very important to me. That's why before you even book I would LOVE to sit down with you in person or skype to get to know each other better and make sure we're the best fit for each other! Wedding photography is not just photos - it's a relationship and it has to be strong!
2. SAVE THE DATE
After sharing a cup of joe, if you decide we're a good fit, we'll make a plan and get you booked! You'll receive a contract that reviews everything we discussed and make your non-refundable deposit payment. Once both are complete, your name is officially on the books as a Megan Sheppard bride! We can now begin all the planning for your special day, engagement and bridal session!
3. ENGAGEMENT SESSION
Not only is this the best way to announce your special day but it's also a great opportunity for us to spend time together and get to know each other more. I often hear my clients say, "I've never had my pictures taken. I don't know what to do." Relax! You're standing by the love of your life. Use this time to love on them and really take in the occasion. I will give you posing direction but also keep it natural and flowing. We can pick out locations together and I'll send you my Pinterest board of outfit ideas to make the most of your session!
Around 8-12 weeks out, I'd love to set up a time to chat to make sure everything is running smoothly and that you don't have any burning questions. I can also create a timeline for you to ensure there is plenty of time for those magazine worthy images we all know you want. I will be available with anything you need - vendor recommendations, planning questions and more. You'll also be receiving my weekly email tip series which is GOLD for any first time wedding planners which is probably you! This works best so that we can both flow into your wedding smoothly and stress-free!
5. WEDDING DAY
Since we have already finalized all major questions, your day can be stress-free! My goal is to make it as easy as possible for you. I'll be your best friend checking your teeth for lipstick but I'll also be your photographer slipping into the back to catch your most precious moments. Let's celebrate!
I may even bust a move next to you on the dance floor.
6. GALLERY DELIVERY
You will receive a sneak peak from your special day within 48 hours! Your digital gallery will arrive in your inbox within 6-8 weeks. Your digital gallery will be a beautiful, well organized selection of all of your portraits. My suggestion? Schedule a night for just the two of you to sit down with a glass of something bubbly to view your images for the first time. You can use this same gallery to download, share and order prints of all of your high-resolution images. Once your gallery is delivered, we will start on your book design. Now, you can dance and beg the postman for the delivery of your Megan Sheppard Photography package!
7. PORTRAIT STYLING
Gorgeous, modern photography deserves perfectly flattering frames and albums. I believe there is great value in completing your portraits through a polished final product. Presenting your photographs in archival matted frames or leather and linen bound albums elevates your portrait investment to the status of fine art, transforming your walls and home into a gallery to be experienced and enjoyed daily.
Showcase your greatest memories with a tangible product that’s permanent.
