WEDDING EXPERIENCE

Wedding PLANNING

1. BOOKING

Part of the reason for my success as a wedding photographer start from my booking process. I will spend time to really get to know who you are as a couple and your wedding photography vision in a wedding consultation (we can do it in person or video chat).

From the moment you send the inquiry to your decision to book, I will make sure that everything is as clear as possible with transparent communication, uncomplicated online booking, straightforward contract & payment system.

What my client says : 

I was pretty stressed out when I started the wedding planning process but when I contacted Valerie, I knew she was the right photographer for my wedding. She was very clear in explaining the process & all details. I love her positive energy & willingness to help. Leading up to the big day, she was very accessible and she did a wonderful job capturing the day. We are so happy with I Heart Life Photography. -Kayla & Eric 2019

2.PLANNING

Shortly after booking, if you chose to do an engagement session, we’ll start planning that session! We will have pre-session consultation and you will receive wardrobe tips, location suggestion and more information so you can make the most of our time together!

About 3 months before the wedding, we’ll do a pre-wedding consultation where we go over the unique details of your wedding day to help you put together a stress-free wedding day schedule.

While I encourage all my couples to work with a coordinator for their WHOLE wedding day schedule, I’m big on preparing as much as I can before the wedding day. This means we’ll go over the schedule, your family groupings and a ton of other little details so the day runs perfectly. You can email me any time during the planning process—I'm on your team! I'm here to help you so you can have a stress free wedding experience. 

 

3. WEDDING DAY

On your wedding day, my team and I are there to serve you — we’ll do whatever it takes to make things run smoothly and on time. 

We’ll fade into the background when we need to. When it’s time to direct, I’ll use prompts and  give posing direction to get you interacting in a natural way.

What my client says: 

Valerie was not only took stunning images that capture our moments perfectly, she also did a great job wrangling my large wedding party. She handled everything with kindness, excitement and professionalism. We highly recommend I Heart Life Photography.

4. EDITING AND DELIVERY

After I get home from your wedding, I spend a few hours uploading and backing up all the images! As a part of my editing process, I go through and select the photos that tell the best story of your day and remove duplicates and blinks. Then I edit your photos to give them the clean, bright and vibrant look that consistent with what you see on my galleries. You will see some images within 48 hours after the wedding and you will receive the final delivery within 4 to 6 weeks.

I cannot say enough good things about Valerie!!! She photographed my elopement this January and it was absolutely everything we wanted and more. She immediately understood what we were looking for - a fun, casual, intimate day. The entire day was lovely because of her support, creativity, and professionalism. We asked a lot of her but she delivered on everything - always with a big smile! And the photos are just breathtaking! We've gotten so many, many compliments on them. We made our wedding announcement with her photos and I'm so thrilled with the response. Valerie is hand downs the best. You can't go wrong working with her! Thank you, Valerie!

Valerie was our engagement & wedding photographer. LOVED our engagement pics! We are currently in the waiting process for our wedding pics, but the sneak peeks were absolutely STUNNING & my husband & I got so many compliments regarding our photographer from wedding guests!! They all said that she was friendly, bubbly, & fun (which I would COMPLETELY agree, her enthusiasm & demeanor make you feel SO comfortable while she's taking your photos even if you're someone who usually feels super awkward getting photos taken). They also said that you could tell she is good at what she does by the way she takes her photographs & uses her equipment! (She had an assistant on our wedding day as well who was also just wonderful!) CANNOT WAIT to see all of our wedding photographs!!! Would 110% recommend I Heart Life Photography!!!
