Weddings

I believe that the camera is a window into our own individual stories, a powerful tool to leave a treasured legacy for our families and loved ones.

My Philosophy

I believe photography is a worthwhile investment and that it is one of the most important things to consider when planning your wedding. I believe your love story is worth capturing because after the wedding is over, you'll only have your photos, video, and your memories to reflect on -- and that's it. Your love legacy will be passed from one family to the next and I take that responsibility very seriously.

I always strive to have a relationship with my clients that is built on trust. Every bride dreams of having an effortless wedding day where they are able to sit back, relax and really enjoy their day without having to worry about any little details on the day of the wedding. One of the most important factors in ensuring that happens is having a well-planned wedding day timeline. By allotting the appropriate amount of time for each part of the day, you can take comfort in the fact that you've planned and prepared to prevent stress and anxiety and the wedding day should just flow smoothly from one event to the next. I am not only part of your day through the engagement session, but I also provide a wedding day questionnaire and suggested ideal timeline to help make sure everything is prepared ahead of time. By the time your wedding day arrives, everyone is aware of the roles they will play in your day.

It's important that my couples have the ability to let go and enjoy the moment. A couple who is truly in love and who can be vulnerable enough to show it are absolutely my dream clients.

This is me.

Quality time is my driving force.

In fact, it's my biggest love language. I believe when we look back at the end of our lives, having spent time with the people we love while doing things that brought us joy, is the most important thing. And weddings shouldn't be any different. That's why I'll always communicate with you quickly to never waste your time. And I'll provide helpful suggestions so you can get back to the things that bring you joy. One of those suggestions - Taking engagement portraits before your wedding. It serves many purposes, like getting to spend quality time with your significant other and also giving the three of us the opportunity to get to know one another better. I'll pick up on what you both are comfortable and not comfortable with (rather than me wasting time the day-of trying to figure it out on the spot,) making you feel more secure and less awkward in front of the camera. Come wedding day, you'll know what to expect, making the experience efficient and leaving you with time to actually celebrate with the ones you love.

I promise to be more than just a hired hand
by helping map out the day and recommending other vendors.

I promise to have discussions with you in advance
so you're not left with last-minute things to do.

I promise to guide you with a step-by-step path
so you never have to guess what comes next.

I promise to capture what's important to you
by asking and learning from you in advance.

What to Expect

Communication should be flexible.

Know that when I'm available, I'll answer right away, with an email, text, or phone call... whatever is best for you. I want you to share your pins, folders, boards and color scheme with me so I can share in your excitement. I want to understand your vision and in turn learn what's most important to you. From the time you inquire to when you receive your gallery, you'll never have to worry about feeling ghosted.

Communication is my jam.

Confidence is better than Photoshop.

Everyone feels insecure in front of a camera (yes, even models!). And no, I don't use Photoshop to perfect every picture. Why? Because that's not the mark of a good photographer! Instead, I'll guide and direct you in flattering poses and position you to help you feel beautiful in your own skin. As you truly are. Without any touch-ups or modifications needed. To me, providing you with the gift of confidence is priceless.

Let me be your guide.

In this day and age, you shouldn't be looking for just a photographer to capture your wedding day. There's plenty of us out there. You deserve an experience. And I believe in order to have a great experience, you need a guide to show you the way. And it helps if you trust and connect with that guide to see you on the right path. That's why, I want us to meet and talk together long before you sign a contract so we can get to know one another. Or if in person is tough to swing, let's schedule a time to Skype or Facetime. I want you to think of me first and foremost as your guide (and a bonus if it leads to friendship!). To share a connection, rather than me just being the lady that shows up on your wedding day to take pictures. As your guide, I want one thing for you - to have an amazing experience throughout your journey.

Capturing what’s most important.

Your love is unique and there's nothing quite like it. The day, the people, the memories - will never happen again in the history of time. And to capture that is an honor.

I want to know what's most important to you so I can freeze those fleeting moments in time forever. For me, the best moments happen unexpectedly - the ones you did and didn't even know happened. We'll also plan and prepare accordingly by creating a timeline centered around the events you've spent hours planning. I've done this hundreds of times before - I know the time each event takes throughout the day, and how those events should be ordered (so you don't have to spend the entire day taking pictures). We'll take the time to review the heirlooms and special details you want captured, and not the week of your wedding when you have a million last-minute decisions to make, but months before during the planning process.

Engagement Sessions

Your engagement session is the perfect time to capture intimate, carefree and romantic images while also feeling more comfortable in front of the camera before the wedding day! I love going on adventures with couples and capturing the in-between moments. From couples' homes to mountaintops, I photograph a wide variety of engagement sessions that reflect everyone's unique personalities. 

A typical engagement session lasts for 1.5 - 2 hours. All engagement sessions include an online viewing gallery and digital downloads. Please contact me for more detailed information.

Here are my five tips on how to get engagement photos you'll love!

Pricing

On average, my couples spend around $4,700 for wedding photography.

My standard full wedding day photography services include a minimum of 8 hours of coverage.

Whether you've emailed me directly or used the contact form on my website, I'll be in touch as soon as I can! If I'm available for your date, I will email you an Introductory Guide that explains my approach, a little bit about how I work and what you can expect in the first steps. From there, I love to set up a quick complimentary phone or Skype call where we can "meet" and see if we might be a good fit. (If I am unavailable for your date, I can definitely send over a list of other photographers I trust and who are currently still available for your wedding date!)

I love being friends with my clients and couples and following them on social media on Instagram or Facebook! It gives me unique insight into your daily life, the people that are important to you & for those wedding couples, I can usually keep up to date with your planning as you go along. You can also follow me on Instagram: @wolfcrestphoto to keep up to date with what I am up to as well!

If you're the kind of person that believes that love should be celebrated and preserved and imagery is part of that equation, please contact me. I'd love to hear about your day.
