It’s easy to book a wedding with me.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3...and 4!
If you love my photos, you can inquire through the contact page and boom! Our friendship has begun!
I wanna see your mushy-gushy faces! We’ll set up a meeting either at my studio or via FaceTime. I’ll learn all about who made the first move, who makes who laugh and what you’re most excited for in your marriage.
To make sure your date is “like a vault baby, locked down” (Hitch, anyone?) in my calendar, I’ll send you a digital proposal where you can review the collection you’ve chosen, the services included, e-sign your contract and pay your 50% retainer fee to make everything official.
It’s go time! Your wedding day arrives and I will be by your side to capture every cheers, every tear and every memory made that day.
Cue, the Carly Rae — “Hey, I just met you and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me maybe!” I bet you’ve been doing A LOT of cold calling [or more likely emailing] just hoping that that little “Re: Wedding Inquiry” will pop back up in your inbox with the answers to all of your questions and the solution to your wedding hopes & dreams. Am I close? My hope is that we can begin that process together today. As a first step, you can inquire through the contact page and boom! Our friendship has begun!
From there I wanna see your cute, mushy-gushy faces! We’ll set up a meeting either at my studio in Oakland or via FaceTime. I’ll learn all about who made the first move, who makes who laugh and what you’re most excited for in your marriage.
OMG Yay! We’re a match made in Heaven! Now to make sure your date is “like a vault baby, locked down” (Hitch, anyone?) in my calendar, I’ll send you a customized proposal where you can review the collection you’ve chosen, the services included and pay your deposit to make everything official. Now that you’re officially a #CheersBabeBride, let’s get down to business.
Don’t freak out! It is normal for couples to feel nervous in front of the camera. I pride myself on making the experience a fun and painless one by fostering real connection between the two of you during photos.
Think of the engagement session, or e-sesh as I like to call them, as the perfect practice round for us - especially if you or your boo is feeling nervous about photos. This session will build our relationship and friendship and give you a clear idea of what to expect on wedding day.
Beyond just practice, I do my best to create unique engagement sessions that tell your love story, rather than just taking pretty pictures against a pretty location. That could mean we take a walk around your neighborhood, visit your first date spot, or even do an activity you love together! I love these sessions because they capture this extra special time in your lives as an engaged couple in a way that we just don’t have the time to do on wedding day.
About 6 weeks out from your wedding, I’ll craft a custom photography timeline for your wedding that you’ll be able to share with your planner or coordinator before they finalize the timeline for the day. This allows us to make sure that all the time that’s needed for photos has it’s place in the schedule and that you don’t feel rushed through photos. This will make for a stress-free environment on wedding day which, obvi — we all want!
It’s go time! Your wedding day arrives and I’ll be by your side to capture every cheers, every tear and of of course a photo of the two of you smiling at the camera so your mom has something to frame on her wall. But seriously! This day is about the two of you and you will always be my focus, but I also know that this day is about two families coming together and that unification is a special thing. That’s why I almost always have an additional shooter with me so we don’t miss a single thing. One fun fact is that you can expect a sneak peek of your photos as early as the next morning! I’m a millennial too babe, we need that insta!
What happens when your dress is hung, the donuts have been eaten & the confetti is all swept up? I get to work. Every image I deliver is hand selected and edited to look absolutely gorgeous. You can expect to receive a minimum of 900 images in your online gallery that will be available 4-6 weeks after your wedding. From there, you can purchase prints directly from that gallery and beyond that I can create a custom heirloom wedding album to you to flip through & relive the joy. These stunning books have a lifetime guarantee too!
We chose Jess mainly for her style — fun and creative which is exactly what we were look-ing for. Jess has excellent communication. She is super responsive to client needs and questions throughout the process. She also makes you feel very comfortable — I didn’t feel an ounce of stress from any of the photos. I HIGHLY recommend Cheers Babe for your wedding if you are looking to capture your wedding photos with a fun, non-cheesy vibe!
I honestly think Jess might be an angel because that’s how big of an impact she had on our day. She makes the awkward feelings of being in front of a camera melt away in 2.5 seconds without even trying. Every ounce of insecurity I had was gone after that and it’s entirely because of Jess. BOOK HER AS SOON AS YOU CAN!
Jess was PHENOMENAL. Come wedding day, I was so nervous (!)... but she was calm, cool and collected, and helped put me at ease - I think it’s just in her nature. She took control, did what she had to do, and kept a smile on her face the entire time. My whole family loved her! We didn’t want a lot of cliche photos, and she totally captured the mood and our love perfectly.
Beyond her charming personality, Jess is insanely talented. She somehow managed to capture all of those glimpses of happiness and love that I had hoped she would. We’re still getting compliments about how unbelievable her photos are from our special day.
Wedding photography is definitely an investment. After the dress is hung, the confetti is swept, the donuts have been eaten and the guests have uber-ed home, you want to be certain that you will never forget those precious memories.
I’ve got a spirit of adventure & I’m ready fly! I am always passport (and TSA pre-check) ready to capture your dream destination wedding and trip of a lifetime.
Round Trip Airfare (if you book a second shooter, you’ll be responsible for the cost of both of our flights).
Hotel Accommodations (2 nights for an engagement session or domestic wedding, 3 nights for a domestic wedding + rehearsal dinner/welcome party, 4 nights for anything international).
Any other necessary transportation (ex: car rental or ride shares).
The average out of town wedding invests an additional $1000 for these travel costs.
No other surprises on top of that!
What are the additional fees involved if my wedding or engagement session is outside of California?
