While I can personalize every louisiana wedding photography collection, here are some of the little jewels of my experience i'm most proud to offer:
Great Question!! I go through and carefully edit every single photo myself! I adjust lighting, colors, and adjust the settings to match my editing style. I may remove a trashcan in the back or Exit sign sticking out but other than that I do NOT photoshop people! I want the photos to be authentic and capture you in your true selves!
A million times YESS!!! LGBTQIA+, no matter how you identify and regardless of how you define your relationship, I'd love to be a part of your wedding day. Love is love and I'm 100% here for it!
You'll receive anywhere from 500-1000 photos from your wedding day. It all depends on how many hours we shoot and how jam-packed your wedding day is! Nevertheless, you will receive ALL the good photos - I won't hold anything back!
Firstly, I'll send you a handful of sneak peek shots a couple of days after your wedding. 6 to 10 weeks later, you'll receive a link to your online gallery filled with all the high resolution images to relive your wedding day. You can download, share, order prints and albums all from that link!
No worries, whatsoever! I am too! I'll play music during our engagement session, act silly and tell really bad jokes to break the ice. I give lots of prompts vs poses. So instead of saying "put your hand here and makeout" I'll say "I want you two to run around chasing each other playing tag. Then let him catch you and spin you around like you're in a rom com movie and you haven't seen each other in 10 minutes"
Don't panic! God forbid something happen, I will make other arrangements. I have a very long list of Louisiana wedding photographers and people who can step in if something tragic were to happen. However, I have shot weddings without a voice, with bronchitis, on zero hours of sleep, with a boot on my foot and on days when I was just feeling really crappy. So I will be at your wedding, rain or shine, unless an act of God stops me from being there.
Yes! I understand how hectic weddings can be and how many payments can be due leading up to your wedding. With that being said, I require a 25% nonrefundable retainer to hold your date and book us on my calendar! However, the remaining amount can be divided into as many payments as you would like - lump sum at the end, monthly, bimonthly, 1, 2, 3, 4 etc.
For starters I am not the most naturally photogenic behind a camera, but Whitney gives instructions on movement and posing which really helped me with that. Not only this, but Whitney treats you like a friend in a way that made me feel super comfortable and confident every time I was doing a shoot with her.
She is absolutely amazing at taking photos and making you feel comfortable in the space with her. She shows you what to do and tell you your best angle so there is no chance of getting a bad photo!! 10/10 recommend her!!!
On our wedding day, she was the ultimate hype girl and so calm even when things were a little chaotic. She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, is quick to adapt when needed, and I felt like as the bride she had my back the whole evening. She would randomly come up to me during the reception to hand me water or check on me— it was so kind and appreciated! Her work is beautiful and so is her heart! You can tell how much she enjoys what she does and cares about each of her clients. I highly recommend Whitney!
I’ll be the chameleon you want me to be – whether you want me to be the ringmaster herding everyone up for a shot, or to sneak around in the background, capturing all the natural, candid moments. No cheesiness or cringy, forced poses here! We'll booty bump, walk like we're tipsy, and you two will smother each other in sweet kisses and giggles. I'll scream and cheer in excitement, wipe a tear escaping my eyes and wave you goodbye as you drive away.
Throughout your day, I’ll be weaving in and out to make sure I catch every precious moment, including moments that went unseen. That quick kiss at the dinner table or tucking that loose strand of hair behind your ear. All the moments that make your heart flutter. The cheers from the parents, rejoicing at the first kiss and those crazy moves on the dance floor.
I'll arrive bright and early ready to take on the day. You and your crew can continue to hang out, get ready and snack while I get my camera gear together, grab your details and get everyone comfy before I start snapping away. Want to get ready with your love? I'm so down and will be a fly on the wall while you two do your thing!
I'll be by your side all day. I tend to know exactly what you need before you need it. Need a quick time to yourself? I'll whisk you away. A glass of water? I'll even get a straw for your lipstick. Tell me what you need and I'll make it happen! All while documenting your spark!
Ever imaged saying "I do" over crepes in a chateau in Paris, a mouthwatering chiante in Tuscany, or while surrounded by the kind of PNW forest a family of sparkly vampires would totally call home? Let's book a flight from MSY to your dream destination ASAP and begin your marriage with a story you can't wait to tell your grandkids! I'll make sure you don't forget a thing!
EXPLORE THE DESTINATION EXPERIENCE
I can't wait to be the one to tell yours! From toasting morning mimosas with your girlies while yell-singing Taylor Swift to racing off into a lifetime of Mr. and Mrs., you'll get to live it up while I document it in all its glory. And between all the spontaneous "what about this crazy idea" texts and timeline call, I'll become the rom-com sidekick you can't wait to spend the best day of your life by your side!
