Wedding Experience

MY PHILOSOPHY: I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. You’re planning the day that you’ve been anticipating your whole life and yet you only get one shot at it! By the time you get the hang of it, the planning is over. My goal as a wedding photographer is to make this one aspect of the panning process simple. Photography is more than just images, it’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! When I think back to my wedding day, I remember amazing memories...but most of the memories I remember really well are the instances that were captured in pictures. They are priceless to me. Our photographer made us feel so incredibly comfortable and for the first time, I experienced what it feels like to be in front of the camera as a bride. Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience....shouldn’t it be fun? and enjoyable? and natural? I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget.  

THE PROCESS: One way I ensure that my brides and grooms enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with my couples. I try my best to make sure that all of my couples are the perfect fit for me before officially booking. A bride and groom should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be excited about the whole process with them! After booking, I love getting to know my clients through an ENGAGEMENT SESSION that helps them warm up to the camera so that they are ready to rock and roll on the wedding day! By the time the wedding day arrives, my clients feel more like friends and that creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography! Now that you know a little bit about my approach to the wedding day, you can continue reading to find more detailed information about THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE!  

MY VISION FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY: I have been photographing weddings for 5 years and in that time I figured out what my brand is and what I want to offer my clients. I want to tell the entire story of your special day. That means photographing your day from the anticipation of getting ready, all the beautiful details, the emotional ceremony, the gorgeous family and couple photos, to the fun of the reception. In order to tell your whole story I need to be there from start to finish. 8 hours! Believe me you will cherish every moment of your special day and you will never regret having a photographer there from the start to the very finish of you once in a lifetime happily ever after! A second photographer is also included to make sure every moment of your special day is covered. My second photographers are professional photographers themselves who will add something special to your special day! While I am with the bride photographing her getting ready my second photographer will be with the groom photographing him. We will never be at the same sport or shooting with the same lenses so you will get two different perspectives giving you even more gorgeous photos!

WHY INVEST? Your first decision as an engaged couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning. You have to decide what you value most. Is it the dress? The food? The venue? As a bride AND photographer, I believe that couples should make their photography a top priority. After the big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse & your pictures...that’s it! All of the planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours! So if you’re choosing to invest in high quality photography, those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding. I offer high end, leather bond Legacy Albums for my wedding clients. The images are printed straight onto the pages and the covers are wrapped with top grain leather. This is the perfect ending to The Wedding Experience and it’s a keepsake that you will be showing your children and grandchildren one day!


ENGAGEMENTS: I am more then willing to travel for engagement sessions! I actually love it when my couples ask me to photograph them in Ga location that means something special to them! We book engagement sessions at least two months in advance and 60 miles of travel are included.

DIGITAL FILES: I average 100 images per hour that I am shooting. I love delivering my client’s files quickly and easily via and online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want. I believe in freely sharing my work because that is what I would want if I were in your shoes.

COVERAGE: I am often asked if 8 hours is enough time or if a couple should go with 10 or more to capture the full wedding story. Our main goal right now is securing and saving your date. You can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and we have a good idea of your timeline.

MY SHOOTING STYLE: I love being interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be part of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there (the ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) I teach my couples how to pose, model and interact during their engagement session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from me.

BOOKING: Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that my Wedding Experience is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next stop is a booking proposal. I will create an online proposal that will walk you through the package and when your ready you can save your date by signing your contract and paying your deposit online. 

So.....What's Next?

Do you think I would be the perfect photographer for you?  Are you ready to get to know me better?  I would love to set up a free consultation where we can talk about your wedding day!  We can meet in my Shepherdstown WV studio, through Skype or over the phone.  Which ever you prefer.  Just e-mail me back with your available dates and times.  

Thank You

I’m so glad you contacted me! Enjoy this season of engagement and get excited about your BIG DAY because it’s going to be fabulous! Plan and prepare but always remember that at the end of the day, you’re marrying the love of your life and that’s all that really matters. Congratulations on your engagement and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

XOXO Haley
