Wedding Investment Guide

Congratulations on your engagement! This is one of the MOST exciting times in your life and I am so happy/honored/ecstatic that you've reached out to me to be a part of it!
This little guide will give you some insight into your (and my!) investment into capturing your wedding day exactly how you want to remember it.

what you can expect from me...

This day is a BIG deal.

I'm here to make it run smooth. Let's be honest, you'll spend more time with me on your wedding day than anyone else. I will help you make your timeline so that I can keep you on schedule while also ensuring that we get every photo you are expecting and more.

You can expect regular check-ins and communication from me throughout the planning process. About 6 weeks out from your date, I'll send you a questionnaire that will give me all the info I'll need to finalize your timeline and ensure that I know about all the details you worked so hard on. 

You hired me to document this day, and that requires A LOT of trust. I am here to help you any step of the way and am always available for questions/advice/opinions/etc. I will give you my honest suggestions using my gained experience from the awesome weddings I've gotten the privilege to be a part of.

On the wedding day, I'll get straight to work starting with details of your dress and ending with the party on the dance floor. I photograph the day as documentary as possible, while also grabbing the traditional photos that will make mom/grandma happy too. Don't worry, I'll give you all the guidance you need while shooting, so you don't need to be "good" at posing. Us real people aren't naturally comfortable with PDA, let alone having someone take your photo doing it! I'll help you feel comfortable and most importantly, have FUN. 

I know what it's like to have to wait to see your wedding photos. After the big day, expect to see a handful of preview photos to ease the anticipation! You'll have your full gallery back within 1 month tops. 

This day should be more than everything you envision, and you should be able to enjoy every second of it without worrying how your photos look or staying on time.

I've got you. Let's do this.

​The Specs:

embossed leather or linen cover (like, a billion color options!)

why albums?

I know what you're thinking: These babies are pricey! But guess what else is pricey? Your ENTIRE investment into your wedding day photos that are just going to sit on your computer forever. Of course you'll get your gallery link, you'll love them, post them on social right away, get a few printed, all the things. And then what? How many times are you going to log in to look at them after that? 

Now let's imagine that there is a gorgeous looking album sitting on your coffee table (bonus decor, you're welcome). Every time you have a guest over, they'll pick it up and gush over how awesome your day was. When you are lounging waiting for your husband to pick your next Netflix binge, you'll flip through it. When you're feeling like reminiscing without resetting the password to the gallery because you forgot it, you'll have your album right there. You paid a lot of money for these memories, so give them a life off of your computer screen.

Still undecided? You can order your album at any time. They are also a great wedding gift/registry item. How does this work? Include gift certificates to HMP on your wish lists and I'll hook your guests up with pretty piece to fill their card. Then you can cash them in for prints and albums of your choice :)
