You've been dreaming of this day and even have several Pinterest boards to go along with that. You're about to marry your best friend!!!!!
The checklists seem endless and the overwhelm can happen quickly. I'm not just there to capture your best day ever, I am also your professional hype girl! I want to cheer you along you as you prepare for your marriage...not just your wedding day.
pop that champagne!
You’re getting MARRIED!!! YAY! First things first - take a second. Take a deep breath in. Let it alllll out. Then pop some bubbly with your man because this season is SO exciting! You’ve heard how stressful and difficult wedding planning can be, but I’m here to remind you- the most important part of the wedding day is the marriage that begins when the day is over.
fall in love with...
When you and your future spouse are choosing the creative team to bring your dream day to life, don’t miss this step. I am going to be there with you on your wedding day for more than your maid of honor, your mama, and even your future husband! I will be your personal hype girl, dress fluffer, tissue holder, and extra bridesmaid. When I walk into the getting ready room that day, it’s time to turn up the playlist, pour another mimosa and get the party started!!!
get in touch
Once you’ve gotten in touch, I’ll walk you through the whole #naomibride experience! We will meet for a coffee date (in person or over FaceTime) I'll show you exactly what a wedding day with me looks like and go over a timeline so you can use it during the rest of your planning!
After our coffee date, it's time to become officially a #naomicouple! This means signing the contract and paying the retainer! Once that happens, BOOM, you're on my calendar and the newest addition to the #naomibride community!
your engagement session
Eeeeeek!!! You’ll be hair & makeup ready, dressed for twirling, dancing and having so. much. fun. with your man!
I know, I know...
Your fiancè doesn't exactly LOVE having his photo taken? This is where the magic begins!! An engagement session allows you two to be together in front of my camera so that I can teach him ALL my tips and tricks so he will be feeling like the cover of GQ in no time!
your engagement session
The engagement session is so important for my #naomibrides for 2 reasons:
1) Let’s just talk about the elephant in the room. Being in front of the camera...it’s awkward!!! The engagement session allows you BOTH to experience what it’s like to be in front of my camera, and you’ll be feeling like you could quit your day job by the end of it. Your hubby to be hates having his photo taken? Done and done. I specialize in that ;)
2) You’ll have TONS of super cute images to post on Insta with every countdown milestone to the day you get to change your last name! You’ll get them in an online gallery so you can share them, love them, and of course print them!!
What to Wear
your engagement session
"But what should we wear?!" You ask? I can help with that.
I’ll send you a style guide to help you pick the perfect outfit to pop on camera. We will pick the perfect location and I’ll remind you to plan a date night for afterward!
Let’s add a few notes to this part, i’ll break this up as a separate view in the engagement session section
thirty days and counting...
One month from “I do” I’ll send you a questionnaire so that we can finalize all the details that you have planned. I’ll get all the info for your vendor team so I can share all the amazing images from your day with them!! We will go over the family portrait list so that there is no stress on the day of the wedding!
it's wedding day!
I’ll be wearing waterproof mascara and ready to celebrate with you and your families! I’ll get you to your first look and have tissues ready. I’ll make sure you feel like a queen and help you two enjoy the day together. I’ll bring your fave cocktail to your sunset husband & wife portraits. I’ll dance with you and all your friends (my one song request is I Wanna Dance With Somebody) I’ll leave your reception with tired feet and a full heart (and TONS of full memory cards)
after the wedding day
You’ll get to see a sneak peek of your amazing day that very next week!! Followed by a blog post with more of my amazing images and I’ll share my fave part of your wedding day. Then you’ll have your FULL wedding gallery within 4-6 weeks!
your wedding album
You’ll choose your most fave images from your best day ever for your custom wedding album & within a few weeks you’ll have your FIRST family heirloom!!
The first year goes by...then it’s time to see me again! Remembering how you’ve grown over the last year, the experiences you’ve shared...it’s your first anniversary session. From year 1 til year 80, it’s a day to reflect on your marriage, your relationship, and fall even more in love with your spouse.
