Before Booking Lauren Ryan Photography. We first try to set up a scheduled phone call. This phone call helps us get questions out of the way if we haven’t already discussed through email. It’s to make sure we are a good fit.
Here are some of the questions:
How many hours of coverage will you need?
What is your guest count?
Do you need help after we book with your timeline?
Do you have any questions about my services?
After our consultation. To book I require a 50% retainer and signed contract. Financially if 50% isn’t in the cards. I also take a percentage of weddings on a payment plan. So ask about this. I accept payments via cash, check, or credit/debit through your invoice.
3. TIPS & REFERRALS
I’m going to be writing a lot more in my Blog section. So look out for tips there every month on how to navigate planning your wedding and it should prepare you on ways to capture good photos for your wedding day.
4. 1 MONTH BEFORE YOUR WEDDING DATE
3-4 weeks before your wedding date I will need you to start preparing your timeline and all of the formal family portraits you would like taken. We talk about the potential of this changing and preparing me at least one week out, before your wedding. Also final payment is due. This is the time to square away all the details and for you to ask me any questions and concerns you have.
5. WEDDING DAY
I customize every experience. Some Brides really desire journalistic or posed photos. Some Brides really want me to be in charge of the timeline and making sure were running on time. Whatever your day looks like, let me accommodate you in the experience.
5. SNEAK PEEK
2 days after your wedding I will be posting some of my favorite photos from your day! I will also try to link you up to these images so that your friends and family can see this as well!
6. RECEIVE YOUR DIGITAL GALLERY & PRODUCTS
Your gallery will be ready within 8 weeks. I try my best to deliver in a shorter time frame, please understand as a wedding photographer I take on 25-30 weddings per year. Depending on how many weddings booked that month, will determine, if we need the full 8 weeks to finish. You will also receive product around this time and we ask that you reach out if you have questions with your Online Gallery or would like to purchase prints and need assistance.
