Friend, congratulations!! You are getting married! I can’t tell you how excited I am for you and your fiancé. You are embarking on a season to remember. Enjoy it. Soak it all in!

There is so much to plan and do as you prepare for your wedding. And if you’re like me, you’re probably thinking:

If I’m getting all dressed up, throwing a party for my closest family and friends, and marrying the love of my life, you better believe I want to capture every beautiful detail of this day. So you can relive it time and again.

Choosing the right photographer is huge, and can make all the difference in your wedding day experience. 

It is my wish that you feel one hundred and ten percent confident in your decision and completely loved and cared for from day one.

About two months before your wedding, I’ll send you a questionnaire that will help me prepare your wedding day timeline and shot list. We’ll get together to chat about the elements of the entire day in more detail too, but this isn’t the only time you’ll hear from me (far from it!). I am here for you. Vendor recommendations? Color schemes and flower choices? Other questions? You can count on me to be here, answering your texts, calls, and emails and helping you plan every little thing.

Inquire with Shea

There is a lot to think about when choosing the right wedding photographer!

I would be glad to answer all of your questions, friend.

Wedding FAQS

I love being both interactive and discrete throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. Your planner will also be a huge part of this. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there (the ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.). To chat more about my shooting style, click here.

What is your shooting style?

no.one

To book your wedding date, your first step is to fill out this quick contact form. I’ll respond within 24-48 hours, and we’ll set up a time to chat!

Once we’ve decided to move forward working together, we’ll agree on a proposal, sign contracts, and reserve your date with a retainer. To start the process, click here.

How do I book?

no.two

A retainer and a signed contract are required to book your wedding date. The remaining balance can be broken up into two payments or one. All balances due must be paid 30 days before your wedding, and everything can be completed online for your convenience. Contact me to learn more. 

Do you accept payment plans?

no.three

I’ve been blessed to work with some of the absolute best in our industry and am happy to share my favorite vendors with you after booking. To start the process, click here.

Do you have any vendor recommendations?

no.four

Yes! I have worked with a handful of highly talented videographers I’d be happy to recommend or I can put in contact with my sister company, Magnolia Paper Co., who offers videography services and more. We can chat more about video when you get in touch.

Do you also do videography?

no.five

Goodness, yes! I will work closely with your other vendors both on your wedding day and leading up to it so your timeline is organized and flawless. 

Can you coordinate with my wedding planner?

no.six

Your wedding photography experience includes 8 hours of shooting time. Micro wedding photography experiences include 4 hours. 

I am often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story, and the answer is yes! You can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and I have a good idea of your timeline.
