Getting to Know You

From Booking to Your Big Day

WHAT TO EXPECT

At our initial meeting, we’ll get to know each other and what you’re looking for when it comes to your wedding coverage. I love thoughtful wedding details and can’t wait to hear what you have planned!

01

Booking

Because I know every wedding day is unique, I create personalized proposals for my couples. We’ll go over the details together to make sure everything you need is covered.

02

Your Engagement Session

I love engagement sessions — not only do we get to capture some beautiful memories from this happy time in your lives, but we’ll also have a low pressure day to make sure you feel your most comfortable in front of the lens before your wedding arrives.

03

Planning & Prepping

Throughout the rest of your engagement, I’ll be in touch to guide you through the information I’ll need from you before your wedding and to stay abreast of the timeline, details, and final plans for your big day.

04

I Do

The day is finally here! I can’t wait to share in all of your joy — and to capture every moment as it unfolds.

05

Let the Celebration Continue

When your images are ready, you’ll receive your full gallery along with my guidance in ordering any prints or albums you’d like to have as keepsakes for you and your loved ones.

How would you describe your style?

My style is all about balance and shooting in a way that serves the moment. During dances and toasts I prefer to be a documentarian and capture what’s happening as it unfolds. For more structured parts of your day (like when we take your portraits), I’m a director and will guide you through actions that result in natural, emotion-filled images. In keeping with balance, I also shoot with a mix of film and digital cameras -- both mediums work best in different situations, and together they help me tell your story in the most beautiful way possible.   

What can we expect from you on our wedding day?

I believe organization is the key to a relaxed wedding. It starts early: in the months leading up to your day I will work with you and your planner to craft a custom photography timeline that fits your needs and allows for spontaneity, too. On the day of you will have both myself and a second photographer present to capture everything -- this ensures we won’t miss a moment, and that I can be fully focused on capturing the emotions of your day as they unfold.

Will you travel for international or destination weddings?

Absolutely! I am always excited to capture love in new places and my passport is at the ready. For more information on travel and destination events, send me a note at carriejoy@carriejoyphotography.com
