Raise your hand if planning your wedding is stressing you the F out!!

If you haven’t done this before, you might feel totally clueless- which is 100% valid. My #1 advice to help the process be more smooth and exciting is to invest in professional vendors you trust…

- including a wedding photographer!

Today with some help from the peeps at Dunder Mifflin, I’m going to walk through what your wedding photography experience with me will be like! The Office is so relatable that it can literally apply to anything…

…Like how you feel once you’re engaged!!! That means you can start planning your wedding which is so exciting-

but can also be stressful AF since you have to wear a lot of hats.

You’ll need a photographer to capture it all, and that’s where I come in! I’ll help you choose the best package for your needs, and answer all your questions about working together.

Plus, I’ll be so thankful you chose me…

That you’ll get a letter in the mail from me saying welcome! Every client who books me for their big day does :)

As the months go on, we will start planning your engagement session!! You’ll likely panic over what outfits to wear…

But its all good- because I’ll help you pick the perfect things so you’re both comfortable and looking fly AF. You’ll be belly laughing and feeling like Beyoncé in front of the camera!

Before the wedding comes, I’ll meet with you to help plan final details and your schedule for the day…

And all of a sudden your wedding has creeped up! You’ll be feeling such a crazy mix of love and emotions… Not to mention the ceremony nerves are REALLLLL, am I right?

Once you finally say I Do though, you’ll feel like this.

(Don’t be surprised if I cry behind my camera from the joy!! Big ugly tears).

After your ceremony is over, we will adventure around for the photos of you two, and you’ll definitely feel like a celeb with all my compliments on how freakin’ amazing you are.

Then comes your family formals! A lot of my couples stress about this due to the number of people, but worry not guys!

I come with a pre-decided list we will have worked on to help those family photographs be a breeze… so that they DON’T go like this:

Lastly, it’s your reception which means PARTY TIME. If you’ve chosen my all day package I’ll be there capturing hilarious candid dancing photos of you and your friends before my coverage time ends!

THEN you have to recover from the party…

And I know just what will help with that: a sneak peek of photos from your day that will make your brain explode!!

8-10 weeks later, THE DAY IS HERE. You’ll get the most exciting email ever saying that your final gallery is ready!!

The waiting may have killed you…

But it was all worth it because now you two married babes can snuggle up and reminisce about your happiest day when you said yes to being in love forever.

It’s always so bittersweet delivering a final gallery because I’ve spent a lot of time getting to know you and witnessing the happiest moments of your life…

But it opens a new chapter which I’m always so honoured to continue to capture as your family grows.

As Micheal Scott says, MY HEART SOARS WITH THE EAGLES NEST.

I love you all so much and can’t wait to photograph your wedding days!! I’ve also truly loved spending time with those now married peeps who I have already photographed, and I hope this was a funny trip down memory lane for you!

Pretty much sums it up.

GUEST POST : Why You Need A Wedding Planner with Emilee of Life's Sweet Events

Hey hey everyone! 

Hope you've all been doing swimmingly since we last spoke :) Today I'm SO excited to announce that as part of my commitment to helping you have the BEST, most relaxed and totally-you wedding day ever, I'll be partnering up with some of my favourite wedding vendors to chat about different elements of planning your celebration, and how they can help you along the way!

The first guest post is by Emilee, a local planner and owner of Life' Sweet Events! As a wedding coordinator and human, this gal is so amazing all around, and really has a lot of passion about what she does (which is helping couples be able to ACTUALLY experience their wedding day with no stress!)

She's going to chat with you about the benefits of having a wedding planner by your side, and answer some of your burning questions below! As a photographer, I can't tell you how truly valuable it's been to have a wedding planner there as part of my couples' wedding days. They help my couples stay relaxed, organized, and actually excited about planning their wedding! Take it away, Emilee! 


BENEFITS OF HIRING A WEDDING PLANNER 


Picture yourself on your wedding day, sitting in the makeup chair surrounded by your maids as your mom giggles over the sweet note your darling has just sent. As the photographer is snapping photos, you’re sipping a mimosa and enjoying this moment to the fullest. 

This sense of being relaxed and experiencing all the excitement is something you’ve been waiting for since the day you said “Yes” and put that ring on your finger!

This is how our clients spend their wedding day. 

How, you might ask? As a wedding planner, I take the stress, organization, and the coordination off your plate so you can be a part of your wedding day. After all, you are the couple of the hour!  

So, how does a wedding planner make your day easier? 

Well, it starts when you begin your wedding planning! Since we are organized people by nature, we keep our clients organized too. We keep you on a planning schedule, making decisions, and booking vendors as you go to help to create a plan that not only suits your needs but keeps you from feeling overwhelmed and stressed. 

While we keep the details of your day straight, we also handle the coordination of your vendors, answering questions, and scheduling their drop offs/set ups so you don’t have to worry about the little details, which keeps your wedding day stress free. 

Now you might be thinking, “while I’m drinking those mimosas and hanging with my beauty team, who will pick up the lunch trays and the bouquets? Who takes the phone calls as the vendors set up?”. You’ll be glad to know that a wedding planner and coordinator also takes care of that! We are the wedding day point of contact, and your gal the day before, too! 

So, while Maddie is snapping those photos of your momma putting on your veil, you won’t have 25 notifications dinging on your phone or five people running errands! 

But how can I afford a wedding planner?”

Well, it’s fairly simple! We help you make your budget so that you can stick to it, discussing the individual day of details that are most important to you, and we help you find great vendors that fit within the budget that we’ve already created. We can also help you avoid costly last minute changes or DIYs, because you’ve planned ahead. 

We offer our professional advice and experience to help you make the most of your wedding budget, and some of our clients say that we pay for ourselves in the stress we save you on your big day!

Our goal as wedding planners is to allow you to experience your day, make memories all day long, and save you money! 


So. Experience your wedding!! Let your wedding planner take over the tedious details, act as your point of contact, and free you up to relax enjoy every moment.

Have fun!! After all, this is your celebration, right?
