The most important thing I’ve learned over the last decade plus of photographing weddings is that the more I know my couples the more meaningful the photographs become. Through this experience, I can arrive on your wedding day and know I’m creating great photographs rather than just hoping I’m getting good photographs.
For a lot of photographers, this first call is so you can learn about them: what their approach is, the awards they've won, about their albums and packages, and so on. Sure, you want to know some of that but for me, this is a journey of discovery about you, what you love about each other, how you've gotten to today and who is important in your lives!
"I feel much better!" is what I always hear after this meeting. This is where we lay it all out. We'll go over your photo-specific timeline, figure out your family formals list, photo locations, talk about family dynamics, and iron out any last minute wrinkles in the wedding day details. *breathes a sign of relief.*
