So, take a peek behind the scenes at what a typical adventure with HWP is like!
Before we start daydreaming together about the breathtaking wedding day you’re planning, all you have to do is get in touch! Tell me a little bit about yourself, your upcoming wedding day, and the date you’ve chosen to say “I do.” Remember, wedding dates are limited, especially during those beautiful spring and fall months, so don’t wait to get in touch or sadly your date may already have been claimed.
Immediately after I hear from you, I’ll make sure your date is open. If it is, hurray! I’ll shower you in information about my wedding photography collections and the wedding experience I offer. Then, we will set a date to chat one-on-one.
Gather up aaaaall your questions and bring them with you to the nearest coffee shop (or just your cozy couch for a Skype call), because I can’t wait to break it all down! This is a chance for us to get to know each other a little bit and make sure we are a perfect fit for your wedding day. I’ll be ready with a bridal guide, preferred vendor list, sample wedding and engagement album, and an explanation of all things Hannah Way Photography. If, after our chat, you’re excited about the magic we can make together, we will head off to the next step in the journey...
With a contract signature and paid deposit, I’ll Sharpie your date onto my calendar. And just like that, you officially have a wedding photographer!
You don’t have to stress over planning a smoothly flowing wedding day alone because I’m going to walk you through the entire process! With years of experience, I can help you craft a timeline that won’t feel rushed and will ensure you have the best possible lighting for your photos.
Now, the fun really begins, as we start planning your engagement session in plenty of time to prepare your save the dates! I’ll even send you a guide to help you choose the perfect outfits and help you find your dream location. Then, we get to have a blast together telling your love story! Just imagine it as a fun date with a photographer third wheel.
If you’ve booked a bridal session, we will begin planning it as soon as your gown arrives! Once again, I’ll flood your inbox with tips on how to prepare for the best possible session. Then, with your test hair and makeup looking beautiful, we take those extra portraits we might not have time to document on your wedding day. And why not make a girls’ day of it by bringing your mom, best friend, or bridesmaid along for the fun!
As the big day approaches, I want to make sure you’re feeling prepared, calm (well, as calm as a bride can be before her wedding day, at least), and confident! So, I’ll be in touch with some final tips and a wedding questionnaire, ensuring we are both ready to go!
Before the flowers in your bridal bouquet have even begun to wilt, you’ll receive a sneak peek gallery in your inbox! Snuggled up with your brand new husband, you’ll be able to see your magical wedding day through my eyes, and fall in love with each other all over again.
And just when the memories of your wedding are growing a little fuzzy around the edges, your full gallery will arrive to bring them back into focus! Laugh together over the images of Uncle Jim cutting up on the dance floor and brush away tears over the images of your emotional vows. From now on, you’ll have hundreds and hundreds of images to help you journey back in time to the best day of your lives.
