Once you're an ASP bride, I am with you every step of the way! I believe in giving each of my couples the best photography experience where I assist with pre-wedding planning, day of teamwork, and at the end, rather than just leaving you with digital files & no way to deal with them, my biggest source of joy is finishing every wedding journey with printed heirlooms for my couples to display & enjoy for years to come!
We start by talking in detail about your wedding vision. What you want your dream day to look & feel like. What is the most important to YOU that you want to focus on. We talk through your vendor dream team who will help you execute your vision & we chat through ways we can personalize your wedding. (DOGS ANYONE?!) I share tips & give recommendations for ceremony & reception times based off your venue & time of year so we can have the best portraits & the most fun party after!! I create a custom photography timeline based off your wedding. I also send a family list that you fill out for your family. Trust me - your wedding day would not flow the same without these initial steps!
The day of your wedding, I'm team bride & groom all the way. I work with your planner to make your day as smooth & seamless as possible while capturing the best, most heartfelt photos of your day. My couples are of utmost important to me & I care about creating a good experience for not only them- but their family & guests as well. My second photographer or assistant will be my right hand in helping coordinate your photos!
After the wedding, while you adventure through Ireland or lay on the beach, I handle all the post-production behind the scenes work! Your images will be carefully curated & available to view in your online gallery! Your gallery has a lot of user friendly features & is so easy to share with friends and family!
I think its so important that all my couples finish their wedding process with beautiful printed photos- because photos were truly meant to be held & viewed daily & not just stored in a computer that may crash one day. I offer a carefully curated selection of pretty ways to showcase & preserve your photos! Most collections include a beautiful print box with 100 4x6 prints & a USB with all your images that will come to you after your gallery is delivered. I offer archival quality fine art prints in my gallery that can be ordered in a frame & ready to hang upon arrival! I encourage every couple to invest in their dream wedding album. I design every album with care & they can be viewed & approved online with ease. Once your dream album is delivered I'm still there to help you at any time with your prints!
Hopefully, I'll see you again in a few years for anniversary photos of the two of you & a newborn or family session when the time comes!!
First, inquire to check your date & receive our wedding collection guide! Then we can go over the collections & see if we're a good fit for your wedding. If you're near Wichita we can meet so you can see our gorgeous signature wedding album, frames, & fine art prints in person!
If you’ve fallen in love with our photographs & albums & want us to photograph your wedding day, then its time to make it official! We'd be happy to help you choose the perfect collection for your wedding. You are booked & your date is reserved with a 25% non-refundable retainer & signed online contract!
Next we plan your engagement session - your date, locations, & the perfect outfits! This will help you get comfortable in front of the camera & know what to expect at your wedding! After the session you can order prints for display at the wedding, as well as use them in your save the date or engagement announcement.
Next we create your custom photography timeline to provide the optimal coverage on your wedding day! I'll also send you a family portrait list for you to customize so we have your family formals all planned out in advance! Both of these are essential for a smooth & stress-free wedding day.
The wedding day has finally arrived! We'll follow your timeline & family list & all will flow smoothly. It's time to let your vendors shine, enjoy a little mimosa -but not too much!- and have the time of your life with your groom & closest family & friends!
After the wedding, I receive the film back from the lab & start the post-production process! I select & edit from all of your beautiful digital & film images to give you the very best wedding gallery.
Your wedding photos will be shared with you via your online wedding gallery! You can share this link with friends & family to view & order prints. You will then receive a gorgeous linen print box with your USB & the best 100 4x6 prints of your wedding day! Now its time to order art, like our beautiful framed fine art prints that come ready to hang on your wall!
Its time to create your signature wedding album to preserve your gorgeous images! At this time I'll use the best photos of your day to create your album design. It's really easy to view, request changes & approve online. Most couples approve their album with no changes- at this point I know your images by heart!
The planning experience on the way to the aisle should be fun and stress-free! I know firsthand that this isn't always the case- which is why it is a MUST to get a dream team of vendors who understand your vision & complement your style! Being able to trust your vendors takes off the stress of your engagement. I highly recommend hiring a talented wedding planner (or coordinator) you click with so you can dance the night away without a worry (& I can fully focus on your photography the day of!)

She is so bubbly and happy and wants to make sure she captures every detail. Ashley did my bridals, engagements, and wedding (along with her husband).
