Looking for a wedding photographer can be stressful. I feel ya! You already have so many things to plan, and finding the right person can add to the chaos.

I'm here to make that part of your wedding planning super easy. During our initial talk, we'll go over what you're hoping for in terms of capturing your day. We may not be a match, and I'll be honest because I want you to have everything you want.

I specialize in weddings under 8 hours, and love when everything takes place in one location so there is less running around, and of course, more time for pictures ;).

Engagements and Weddings

Feel free to email me at katie@katielouisephotography.com or use the contact form through the website to let me know what date you've picked for your wedding. If I'm available, we'll talk about wedding day coverage so you know all your options!

Secure your date

In order to reserve your date on the calendar, a $1000 non-refundable deposit is due along with a signed contract.

Once you pick out your collection, I customize an online client portal for you. Through the portal, you'll be able to view and sign the contract, view and pay invoices, and fill out your wedding day questionnaire.

You've decided to book.
 Now what?

engagement session

Once you've officially secured your wedding date, we'll pick out a date and location for your engagement session.

All engagement sessions take place outdoors and 2 hours before sunset for the prettiest light.

I LOVE engagement sessions because they are a great way for us to get to know each other. You'll be familiar with poses I might have you do on your wedding day, and I'll also know everything you're comfortable with.

What I hear most from my clients is that it was like seeing a friend again come their wedding day. That's my goal. I want you to be relaxed on your wedding day so you don't have to worry about the photos and can just enjoy yourselves!


lET'S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER!

Timeline Prep

When you book, I create an initial timeline of events based on how many hours you think you'll need. These details won't be finalized until a few months before the wedding or when you send out the invites.

It's very important when planning the start times for the ceremony and reception to leave enough time for both family formals right after the ceremony and bridal party portraits. Two hours is ideal. One hour is a MUST. These are the pictures you are going to want to use as gifts and to hang in your home. If the ceremony and reception take place at the same location, this will save you tons of time.

We'll go over the timeline well in advance, and we'll also go over specific family portraits to make sure we don't leave anyone out.

Planning out the timing for events during the day will be a lifesaver!

tHE BIG DAY!

We've planned as much as possible, and hopefully everything goes right. But I know from experience, that that doesn't always happen. Stay positive and focus on what matters - you're marrying your best friend today. I'm definitely used to last minute changes, so don't worry. We'll get amazing, wall-worthy photos no matter what! 

The important thing is for you to have an amazing day celebrating your commitment to each other and being surrounded by your family and friends.

Time for one of the best days of your life.

Gallery Delivery

The day after your wedding, I'll post some sneak peeks from the day on social media, and you'll also receive a gallery with these same images.

I'll post a blog 1 week from the wedding, and you'll receive your final gallery 3 weeks from the wedding.

If your wedding is 4 hours or less, you'll receive your images even sooner.

yOU'RE SO EXCITED TO SEE the pictures, and it'll be
worth the wait!

Album Design

Creating an album is such a great way to have a physical representation to have out all the time as a reminder of your wedding. Guests will love to flip through it while hanging out on the couch, and one day - if you have them - your kids will love looking through and seeing the moment where their parents decided to spend the rest of their lives together.

I'm here to take all the struggles with design out of your hands. I'll create a custom look depending on how many pages you want, and all you have to do is approve ;).

You have your gallery, now let's create a keepsake album for you to look through in the years to come.

About My Process

the process

- CECE A.

"We cannot thank you enough for all that you did to make the wedding so incredibly special. Both Sara and Sam sat down after you had left and told me how thrilled and thankful they were that you were able to be their photographer. Sara said that it made her feel so special to have all the pictures taken, and she’s so glad you were available. She said it felt like you were a friend who walked into her dressing room, she felt comfortable with you immediately. You have such an eye for creating gorgeous opportunities for photos. Thank you, thank you for helping to preserve their special wedding!"

Elopement

Delivery includes 75-100 pictures/hr. So about 600-800 pictures for an 8-hr day.

You'll want to schedule your engagement session after securing your wedding date. Then, it's usually based off of how much time you have before the wedding and if there is a particular season you would like to use. Clients usually like to have their engagement pictures taken a year before the wedding.

This is a possibility, but most of the time I like to guarantee a certain amount of pictures. You'll want to make sure you give yourself enough time to not rush through, but also to capture enough to create a mini album as a keepsake for the day.

At this time, all wedding collections include a print release. This means you can download the images from your chosen collection and print them wherever you'd like!

Your gallery also offers print and product ordering as a convenience and for great quality.

Using a second shooter is a great way to capture different angles and side moments between family and friends. Even though it's rare, equipment malfunctions happen. I use two memory cards in case of this, but if the entire camera happens to fail for one of the special moments, my second is there as a backup so we never miss a shot.
