Searching for the perfect wedding photographer who not only matches your style but also feels like the right fit can be quite the adventure. The process of finding, hiring, and collaborating with a photographer who understands your vision is a journey in itself. But what exactly does this journey entail?
In this post, we take you through the entire process at Ever After Photographers. From the very moment you reach out to us with your initial wedding day inquiry, we’ll guide you through each step. All the way to the moment you receive your cherished final images. So, are you ready to dive into the journey with us?
THANKS FOR REACHING OUT!
When you reach out, we make it a priority to respond promptly to let you know if we’re available for your wedding day. We also provide initial information about our packages and suggest setting up a free Photography Consultation Zoom meeting using our easy to use scheduling link.
It’s a relaxed way for us to chat, dive deeper into your wedding plans, customize your wedding package and address any questions or curiosities you might have.
This scheduled ZOOM meeting is all about making sure we’re the perfect fit to capture your special day. At Ever After Photographers, we believe in creating authentic connections with our couples, and it all begins before we even pick up our cameras. Understanding your unique vision and needs is essential for capturing those natural and authentic shots. That’s why we like to keep things relaxed and personal. We want to get to know each other better, chat about your wedding plans, help you customize your package and share our approach. Feel free to bring any questions along!
After the meeting we send a quick note with any additional information you requested along with your custom quote.
If you have any questions at that time, please ask away! We are happy to clarify and provide all answers. Our goal is to make sure you are 100% certain that you would like us to be a part of your wedding day.
Although your date is not booked with us until the contract is signed and the deposit is paid, we will let you know right away if a second couple does ask us for availability on the same day as your wedding date.
WE ARE IN!
We clicked and you’re ready to book! Now we ask you for all information needed to complete the contract you receive electronically. Along with the contract you will receive a retainer deposit invoice. Remaining total is due over two additional equal payments prior to your wedding day.
Once the contract is fully signed by both of you and by us, and once the deposit invoice is paid you are fully booked!
Of course, we are always available to answer any questions you may have or to help you with your wedding day timelines, overall planning and with the selection of any engagement or wedding day session locations. Happy to help!
TIME FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION
An engagement session is like a dress rehearsal for your wedding day. It gives us a chance to work together before the big day and build a strong connection. You’ll become more relaxed in front of the camera, resulting in more natural and authentic photos.
You will receive from us a Couple Session Questionnaire that plays a crucial role in comprehending your unique dynamic as a couple. It allows us to tailor our approach to suit your personalities and preferences.
Rest assured, we’re here to guide you every step of the way. From assisting you in selecting the perfect date and location to offering valuable insights, our goal is to ensure your engagement session is a memorable and enjoyable experience.

About a month before your wedding You will receive a Wedding Day Questionnaire. Once questions are completed we meet on zoom to discuss the details of your day. During the meeting, we talk about overall timing, confirm addresses, venue contacts, phone numbers, names of your bridal party, and ask you questions about your vision for the day.
CREATING A CUSTOMIZED SCHEDULE
Based on this meeting we create and send to you for review a customized Photography Schedule with all of the discussed details.
The schedule has all of the immediate information which we use on your wedding day. It is super important that you review and confirm that all of the information on this schedule is 100% accurate. Most importantly please check all of the addresses, phone numbers and timelines. We would hate to show up at a wrong address on your wedding day!
IT’S YOUR WEDDING DAY!
On your wedding day, we split up to cover getting-ready sessions and essential moments. We capture emotions, laughter, tears, and fleeting gestures that make your day unforgettable.
We love dancing shots and we usually spend time with you and your guests on the dance floor. Doing so we become one of your guests and our captured images carry the emotion of the dance floor. Each wedding is unique and so is the vibe and energy of your guests. We love that you can see that in the captured images.
When it is time to leave, you can be sure that we will first find you and ask you if there are any other images you would like us to take.
AFTER THE WEDDING
We totally understand that you’re eager to relive your special day. So, about three weeks after your fantastic wedding, we’ll send you a “sneak-peek” gallery. It’s a little taste of the magic to come, and you can easily share these pics with your loved ones to get everyone in on the excitement!
On average, you can expect to receive your photos within 3 months after your wedding day. This timeframe allows us to meticulously edit and curate each image to ensure they meet our high standards of quality and artistry. Your patience will be rewarded with stunning, timeless photographs that capture the essence of your special day.
Our formal journey may end here, but we often stay in touch with our couples, considering many of them friends. We’re always available for questions or to capture future milestones in your life.
These steps in our photography process are carefully designed to deliver a customized, unforgettable experience with Ever After Photographers. We’re here to ensure your wedding memories are beautifully preserved.
We hope to meet you soon as we start on the above journey.
