The big and fancy wedding not for you guys? You’re my kind of people then.
Big weddings are expensive, ANY wedding nowadays are expensive, so if you and your partner have chosen to do something small and intimate with just family and close friends you are not the only ones.
Small weddings are becoming more and more popular, there are a million DIY tutorials on your flowers, food, decorations or whatever you venture to take on.
However one thing you cannot do for yourself is your wedding photos. You can hire a friend or a family member for a low price but chances are, they aren’t professionals and you’re going to end up regretting it. (Blunt, I know, but better you find out this way)
15-20% of your wedding budget should go into your photographer and it should be top 2 of what you spend the most money on (the other being the dress obviously) but that doesn’t mean that 15-20% will amount to enough to hire a pro. Enter me!
I’ve done some big fancy weddings and have had lots of experience with couples in my career now and I’ve decided I really hate working big expensive weddings. They are loud, long, exhausting, and have many boring moments for me honestly. My smaller and more intimate weddings have shown me couples who are genuinely in love and only want their most loved ones near them on one of the best days of their lives. Having a smaller wedding makes you less stressed and gives you more time and energy to spend together.
Not to mention your price for you wedding will be customized to what you need and not starting at a flat multi-thousand dollar rate when you don’t need some of those services. It will be based on time, distance, involvement, add'-ons and extras, and requests. We will have at least one face-to-face private meeting to decide what your cost and schedule will be and you will be in constant contact with me to your disposal up until the wedding itself. *
