We are always happy to travel to your chosen destination. Charges for travel outside our normal area are added to your package price. All Wedding Photography Packages include travel within a 60-mile radius of Thomasville, GA or Savannah, GA. Outside of the 60-mile radius we charge 58 cents per mile. For weddings more than two hours away from Thomasville or Savannah, the client is responsible for all travel costs including lodging for the night before and the night of the wedding depending on the start and end of photography for the day.
Contact us for available dates. Please note that free Saturdays during wedding season are rare, so we may have to do the session on a weekday evening or a Sunday. We usually begin shooting 2 hours before sunset (3 if we are shooting in an urban location) we will set you up with your online client area, where you can sign your model release and pay for your session. Your session is not booked until it is paid for.
-Before we start, I will take a look at the clothing choices and we will talk about any second locations.
-Know that the first 10-15 minutes might be awkward, but we’ll have your inner model shining in no time!
-If your parents come and I ask them to step away during the session, please don’t be offended. I do this with a lot of parents. The phrases “smile now” , “oh my gosh you need a haircut”,and “is that chocolate on your shirt?!” are not permitted.
-Sometimes, I talk a lot and shoot very little. This is not because I’m not getting any good shots..it is because i am trying to make a connection. --
-Sometimes, I walk around my subject to see how the light looks from different angles.
-If you bring special things , know that I usually save the best props for last. This is when you are most comfortable in front of the camera.
Cute clothing and accessories are great! If you have a location that is personal to you, that is also good! Quilts and blankets are good, but try to stay away from too many other props unless they really represent you (ie. dog, guitar represent you vs picture frames, wooden letters probably don't ).
Try to stick to 2-3 outfits. One, like you would be going on a date and the other a little more casual. We love color, so don’t be afraid of it. Go fun and trendy or keep the outfit simple and timeless and use accessories . Layers if it is cold (hats, scarves, etc.) to compliment the look. Gap, jcrew, garnet hill, abercrombie, johnnieb , modcloth, and anthropologie are all great places to shop. Etsy is a great place to find accessories! bring a few things and we will help you choose!
We like everyone to show off their personality. If you need suggestions on clothes, let us know. [Here is our pinterest page for help.]
