I absolutely ADORE love! From that night that he asked for your number to the big day that you get to say “I Do” to forever, your story deserves to be stilled into a moment and portrayed in the most beautiful way possible. My goal is to capture the true essence of your love story in such a way that as your looking over your timeless images when you’re old and gray, sitting on the front porch drinking delicious warm coffee, you’ll be able to experience the same beautiful emotions you felt on the day you promised him forever.
Planning of the wedding can be super exciting and sometimes a little daunting with so much to plan. I want to make sure that your big day and your journey with me is one to remember. One way that I make that possible for my brides and grooms is by creating a relationship by meeting with them in person over coffee or through video chat. I truly believe in being able to get to know my clients well so that I can tell their love story in the most authentic way possible. This also allows my couples to meet me to build that trust and put them at ease when it's time to get in front of the camera.
This is the beginning of me telling your story. Every engagement session is a unique one because not one story is alike. Prior to your session, we will choose a location or locations that are important to you and represent your story well. If you two met in the grocery store and it was love at first sight, that's where we're headed! Okay, okay, that sounds a bit extreme but I want your engagement session to represent you well and you can never put creativity in the box. So if you have big out-of-the box ideas, I'm all ears!
Every Engagement Session is 2 hours and comes with either a Custom Wedding Guestbook or 75 Custom Save the Dates.
This is final planning meeting before the big day. You and I will meet up either in person or video chat and discuss the final plans for the day. This is also the time we will discuss your timeline, venue needs from the photographer, family shot lists, etc.
Whew! We made it! It's time for me to take over from here and allow you to just enjoy your day! I allow the timeline to guide my day and help with keeping everything in line, along with your wedding planner if you have one, to make sure that your day flows as smoothly as possible so you can be present on your special day and love on your Forever Plus One!
You're now Boo'ed up for life, so what's next? All high resolution edited images will be delivered via a gallery within 4 to 6 weeks of your wedding date. If you purchased an Heirloom Album with your Collection, it will be custom made with my album designer, sent to you for approval and then ordered and delivered. This process can be a 3 to 4 week process after gallery delivery.
It definitely doesn't have to stop there! You are considered family to Jaleccia Ates Photography after the Big Day! To enhance your wedding collection, you can now add one portrait session a year for life to your Collection to set you up to have all of your milestones from here on out captured by us! This can include but definitely not limited to anniversary photography, family photography, or maternity photography. I'm looking forward to growing with you and building on this beautiful relationship.
