session

the

Such a fun one! I love these sessions because I really get a chance to get to know you as a couple, maybe learn that cute little thing only you guys do, etc... and this allows me to not only also fall in love with you, but capture your relationship in a more personal way as well.  And this goes both ways too! I want you to feel like I'm a friend as well, this will help us all be more comfortable working together on your big day! And when that friendship is there, magic happens.

01.

what to wear

A little paragraph here about clothing options, what works well, what doesn't ...etc.  Maybe recommend woman picking outfit first, and then have man compliment one of her accent colors, etc... Just some tidbits that will help the couple decide what to wear and how to accessorize, don't forget to mention shoes, jewelry, and hair + makeup as well.


Still struggling or want some visual inspiration?

when + where

A little paragraph here for your clients about locations. How to pick one, how you'll help choose one that is great for them, what they should look for in a location, and what they shouldn't stress about in a location too! 

Just keep it simple, let them know how you'll get to know them a little before to help pick this spot, etc...

And then touch on when you recommend doing their engagement session, like how soon before the wedding.

let's print!

Something like ... I know you're saving space for those wedding photos, but this session is magical too! They are great to look back on to see how you were as a couple in a more natural everyday setting, and even better they are perfect for Save The Date cards!  These images also make gorgeous albums to use a guest book at your wedding!

Lots of great printing options here, so don't forget to make a special place in your home where these photos can live too!

your big day

before

This would be a great paragraph to tell your clients a little about what happens before the wedding, the timeline of when you want things done, how you want them done, how you will communicate with each other, things like that. Just kind of outlining what you expect from them, and what they should expect from you leading up to the wedding day.

thoughts

final

consider the first look

A little paragraph here about why it's important. Talk about the raw personal emotion they won't hold back when they are alone, how they can take this one little moment in the full day/night to really enjoy each other and soak it all in together, and about how gorgeous these images turn out, not just photographically sound (because you can control the lighting so much better than in a reception hall) but also how impactful they are emotionally. Maybe even a warning that you'll probably tear up, of course brides would love to hear that their love would bring people to tears!

anything else to add

One last paragraph here about anything else you want to emphasize as their photographer. 

Can be some general notes, or another thing that's important to you, something that always helps the day go smoothly, tips for the couple to be, etc... Anything you want really.  I would suggest trying to make it about as long as the paragraph to left for the desktop version, so that it is visually pleasing for the visitor.  And then leave just enough for a parting sentence.


I'm as excited as you are!

unplugged for the win

Talk about the benefits of an unplugged wedding here. Why you love them, why your brides love them, etc...

If you are really for them, dive deep into that why and really portray to your bride the emotion behind that too, it will help her see the benefits if you're coming from an honest place and explain yourself well.  Good luck! 

Here try and fill in this whole space as well, keep these three sections about the same length, add some descriptive wording to help.

wedding album

the

This would be a great place to show your clients what an album would look like, and explain why they should think about getting one. Replace the image here with one of your albums, or maybe the many album cover options even, or link out to a wedding album page, something like that.

Mention a few add-ons they might enjoy as well, and dive into the best reasons to print digital photos.  

Pull on those heart strings a tad, you got this.

i look forward to working with you
