Your Wedding Day
What will your wedding from Love Me Do Photography look like?
In this section we'll go through a typical wedding day process. We recognize that every wedding is unique and that every couple is different, so your wedding may not follow these exact guidelines. This is simply to give you a better idea of how we work with you to produce beautiful images of your wedding day.
We we love to meet you face-to-face (if possible) prior to securing the date. We like the oppurtunity to sit down with you and have you elabroate on the detials of your wedding. We find this initial meeting to be very helpful for getting to know you better. It's important to us that we have the same vision for your wedding as you do, so that we can produce the images that we know you will love and cherish! Also during this meeting we can go further into detail on different products we offer including albums and prints.
The Walk Through
In the weeks prior to the wedding day, we touch base with you and discuss the schedule and logistics of your wedding. We do this so that we can be fully prepared for every detail of the day, as well as plan our shots and locations for portraits. We prepare a timeline of the day and use this oppurtunity to ask about any specific photographic requests you may have for your wedding. We're also happy to team up with your planner to coordinate the details of your day.
The Wedding Day: Getting Ready
For your guests, your wedding begins at the start of the ceremony. As your photographer, we know that is definitely not the case for the bride! We start the day protographing you at your getting ready location, wherever it may be. We cherish this part of the day because it is different from any other part of the wedding day. It's your time to relax, anticipate, and be excited for the day to come. As you're getting your hair and make up done and having girl-time with your bridesmaids we use this time to set up shots of any detail items: your dress, shoes, jewerly, flowers, rings, invitations... anything that's special for your day, we want to take a picture of it! We know you've spent hours picking out the right items for your wedding to fit your personaility and style, and we want to make sure to capture that.
The "First Look"
Traditionally this would happen as you're walking down the asile seeing your partner for the first time. More commonly, couples are deciding to have their portraits taken before the ceremony. This decision is completely up to the couple, as it is a very important moment! If you choose to have your photos taken before the ceremony, we gladly set up a "first look" between the couple. We find a secluded setting in which this moment can happen. We ask family and the bridal party for privacy as you see each other for the first time. This is a really amazing moment to photograph, and in many cases, has brought us to tears ourselves! The emotion captured in this moment is so completely genuine and full of love.
Couple and Bridal Party Portraits
This is where we can let our creativity flow as we capture images unique to you and your partner. We want you to look and feel natural in front of the camera. We will put you at ease with little tricks of the trade to bring out your geniune personality. We know that you planned your wedding to be unique, and we love to push the boundaries to provide you with unique and artistic photographs.

Of couse we also know its important to both you and your family that we photograph everyone together. Feel free to provide us with a list of necessary family shots you would like us to take. We will a suitable location to set these up in a timely manner. They are just as important as every other shot we take!
The ceremony is what your wedding is centered around. We are very keen to the important parts of the ceremony and to be on our toes to capture these moments. We very aware of our presence and make sure to not be a distraction to you or your guests during the ceremony.
