How do I book you guys for my wedding? How do I get my pictures? How do I schedule an engagement session?

These are some of the questions that I get weekly. So, in the continued effort for keeping things simple and clear, I’ve posted the below path from our initial meeting to receiving your completed album.

    • Give us a call at (704) 584-9093 or send us an email through our Contact page. We’d love to meet over a cup of Joe and hear your story!

    Reserve Your Date

      • Let us know if you’d like to book us and we’ll send you a contract to sign. Just confirm you package and sign the contract. Return the contract and a non-refundable deposit to the address we provide you. Once we’ve received the contract and deposit, we’ll send you a confirmation email that your wedding day has been reserved. From here you’re on our calendar!

      Schedule Your Engagement Session

        • Give us a call or shoot us an email to set up a time, location, and date for your engagement session. Session last around 2 hours and are only scheduled for weekdays during busy seasons. You’ll receive your completed Engagement images in 4-6 weeks. Here’s a detailed Next Step Guide for how to get started.

        Send us Your Wedding Schedule

          • After your Engagement Session, we’ll send you a wedding planning form with a sample wedding schedule. Fill our the form and email it back to us. Don’t worry if you’ve got some questions! Once we’ve got the form back, we’ll schedule a time to go through your wedding day. We’ll be happy to provide any suggestions at this point. If we’ve made any changes to your schedule, we’ll send you an update schedule via email to confirm. Read this post to find out more about planning your wedding event.

          Be at Your Wedding

            • I hope this point is obvious…. We’ll be there bright and early, jacked up of coffee, ready to go!

          Share Your Sneak Peek

            • A few weeks after your wedding day we’ll share a sneak peek on our blog. Feel free to share the link on all of your favorite social media sites. We want everyone to see how awesome your wedding day was!

          Receive Your Completed Images

            • You’ll receive your images via online gallery around 8-10 weeks from your wedding day. You’ll have private access to download all of your images and order prints right from your gallery. You can also view all of your images on your smart phone via the app.

          Order Albums and Prints

            • You can order prints, canvas wraps, metal prints, glass prints, and coffee table albums right from your online gallery! If you would like to order a Signature Storybook Album (a lux hard back album), just create a “favorites list” of 100-150 images in your gallery and email it to us. We’ll be back in touch with album options from there.
