The Wedding Experience
Want a behind the scenes look at our process and what it's like working with us?
Read on and see what you can expect when you're an L&M Couple.
This is the most important part of the wedding experience and why we do what we do : ) After you’ve inquired with us and we’ve checked that your date is available, we’ll have you guys over for our first get together (or Skype for destination & out of town couples).
This is where we get to know each other! We want to hear all about your story and your big day!
If we've made a great connection and feel like we’re a great fit, we will then agree to be the ones there with you on your wedding day. We don’t think you deserve anything less.
At this time you can check out our gorgeous albums and we will also walk you through all our options. Because we don't believe weddings are one size fits all, rather than have you select a package from a list, our couples create their own collection. One size fits all never seems to fit anyone perfectly ; )
the engagement session
Did we just become best friends? Yup! That means it’s time to move on to scheduling and planning your engagement session.
Besides getting beautiful images and diversity in the art work in your home, the engagement session plays an important part in the wedding day. You don’t want the first time you’re in front of our cameras to be on your wedding day.
Your engagement session is where you’ll get comfortable being photographed by us, see how we work, and we’ll learn about you guys as well. This will give you a more relaxed and smooth experience for the photos on your wedding day.
Lastly, because of everything mentioned above is why all our wedding clients receive a complimentary engagement session.
THE ENGAGEMENT REVEAL
Not too long after your engagement session it will be time for you to see what we’ve created together.
You’re invited to come in to view all the great images we made from your engagement session.
We’ll have some beverages, relax, and go through all the images together on the big screen.
Here you will be able to choose all of your favorite images and make your selections for any prints, wall art and albums you would like for your home and wall decor.
We love creating a custom timeline for our couples. Building a custom timeline together allows us to go through each part of the day and ensure we have enough time to capture all those great images you’ll want from your big day.
We’ll help you figure out getting ready, first look (if applicable), creative, and family portrait times.
We'll also account for things like travel time between locations, and packing and transporting gear. It's the little things ;)
THE WEDDING DAY
The time has arrived! Time for you to relax, enjoy your big day, and celebrate with family and friends! It’s also time for us to do our thing!
We've been doing this a long time and we know the day is going to go by fast. As your wedding storytellers, we'll be capturing all the traditional shots every bride, and family needs, grabbing all those moments in between, and creating unique and creative portraits for your families to enjoy for generations to come.
We believe in telling a complete story so we document weddings for a minimum of 8 hours.
THE WEDDING REVEAL
Ready to relive your big day? So are we!
It’s time for you to come over and see your wedding images!
Bring the family, we’ll pop some champagne, and relive all those moments together on the big screen.
This is the most exciting time for us. We love watching our couples and their families as they are brought back into the moment by seeing their images for the very first time. To us this experience is a moment in itself as they are seeing everything that seemed to go by in a blur that day - including all the details, the moments they didn’t see, the tears of joy, the laughter, and everything in between.
We love experiencing this with our couples!
As storytellers, we believe in the power of print and using that power to create your first family heirloom. Something you and your family will enjoy for generations to come.
For our album options, we’ve selected only the finest handmade albums in the world. Handcrafted in every way and beautifully presented.
We custom design your album with all your favorite images and you can customize your wedding album any way you’d like to match your personality and style.
Once you've chosen your options and approved your design, it will be sent into production with our album makers. Once it's complete, it will be sent to us for a white glove inspection, then delivered to you, ready to enjoy
