Weddings

First off, congrats on the engagement!! I promise you won’t get tired of staring at your newest accessory! That ring comes with a lot of excitement but it also means a bit of work is ahead.  After photographing over 100 weddings, AND planning one of our own, I understand all that goes into it!
 
That is why my desire is to do more than simply show up on the wedding day. I make it my goal to help each bride throughout the whole process of planning the photographic part of her wedding. 





 

I want to be a support and friend by building relationships with my brides and being available to
help in any way I can. 

Whether it's meeting for coffee, or a phone call at any time throughout the process, my brides get top priority! I want to be sure I do my part to make sure they are as prepared as possible for the wedding day. 
 
I view it as an honor to capture the first moments of a couple becoming husband and wife and to preserve the memories of that day. 

Everything you need to know, you newly engaged girl!!

Thank you for considering me to capture the light, joy, and elegance of your wedding day! 

THE PROCESS

Details on the Christa Rene Bride experience!

We have a goal to either meet with, or talk over the phone with every bride-to-be before booking! This ensures we'd be a great fit, and allows us to learn more about you and your story! If we want to take the next step, we'll send a deposit & contract over to make it official! 

Let’s make sure we’re the perfect fit!

Consultation & Booking!

THE NEXT STEP

We include a complimentary engagement session with our package for a few reasons! It allows you and your love to feel more comfortable in front of my camera, and is great practice for the wedding day since we'll do the same poses! It's also a chance for us to get to know you two as a couple even more, and serve you better on your wedding day!

The first (but not the last!) time we’ll get to photograph you as a couple!

Engagement Session!

THE NEXT STEP

After shooting weddings for 6 years, we've learned how much time spent on each area of the wedding day is best for photos for the flow of the day! We'll walk you through your custom timeline to allow for a smooth wedding day, and time for gorgeous images to happen!

We’ll create a custom timeline to fit your photo needs best!

Timeline Planning

THE NEXT STEP

Having a call about one week before the wedding allows us to ask you about the most important parts of your day. We’ll also secure final details or changes that may have come up! And then we’ll chat again about your album so we can get to work on it while you’re enjoying the honeymoon!

Let’s make sure all the final details are in place, and talk about your album!

Final Meeting!

THE NEXT STEP

WE MADE IT! You'll be all set on your wedding day since our timeline will be set, you'll have a guide from me on what to have ready when we arrive, and it's time for you to get MARRIED! We'll be with you every step of the wedding day, and will be sure to give you a big hug when we arrive (and when we see you after you're MARRIED!)! 

It’s finally here!!

The Wedding Day!

THE NEXT STEP

Snuggle up together to enjoy your images and make the final decision on your album! After this, you’ll also have a full online gallery to send to family and friends with just a click!

Time to Enjoy Your Photos!
