what to expect

When you hire me as your wedding photographer, you are investing not only in the photography coverage of your wedding day, but in the quality albums and products that your family will enjoy for generations.  From start to finish, you will be treated as a friend, so that I can capture the authentic love between you and your fiance and that love can radiate in your wedding album as your grandchildren flip through your photos 50 years from now.  But how does this all work?  Let me walk you through what you will experience with Danielson Photography.

The Pre-consultation

I meet with all of my couples before you even decide to book with me.  I want to make sure we are the perfect fit, so that you can truly enjoy your photography experience and plan your wedding stress free.  At this pre-booking consultation, we will discuss your vision of your wedding day, what your photography needs are and get to know each other a little better.  When you are ready to move ahead with booking, I send you all of your information in a handy online portal that you have access to throughout your planning process. ​

Engagement Session

Included in full day wedding coverage is an engagement session with me.  This allows you to begin to get used to being in front of a camera and gives me an opportunity to get to know you a little more before the big day.  I like to keep these sessions relaxed, taking time to pose you in a flattering way while also encouraging genuine emotions to shine through in your photos.  I am often told at the end of the session, “that was so easy!”

Planning Process

Many times, photography is one of the first things you get taken care of during your wedding planning, so you may not even have that much information yet to discuss at your consultation.  That’s ok!  I’m available throughout your planning via email and phone calls to help you.  In fact, I check in periodically to make sure you are doing alright.  Not sure what color bridesmaid dresses photograph best?  Have no idea where to start with your other vendors?  I can help point you in the right direction.  I can even connect you with some excellent wedding planners in the area if you are really overwhelmed by the planning process.   We meet again in person about a month before your wedding to finalize your timeline and go over any other pressing details.  

Wedding Day

When the wedding day arrives, I want you to be worried about absolutely nothing! We will have already planned your timeline and must have photos, all you will have to do is enjoy your day.  I keep an eye on the clock to make sure everything stays on schedule, documenting the candid moments throughout the day and working quickly during scheduled portrait times so your entire day isn’t spent in front of a camera.  This day is about the two of you!  I’m just here to help you remember every little detail. 

Image Delivery

Quick turnaround is very important to me.  I know you are eager to see your images and relive the greatest day of your life.  Images are delivered conveniently via an online gallery that you can share with your loved ones.  Prints are also able to be ordered directly from the gallery, making it as convenient as possible for everyone to enjoy the beautiful photographs from your day.  

Album Order

Each of my collections include a custom wedding album.  We work together to design the perfect family heirloom to look back on your special day and that will be looked through for generations to come.  

The Divine Feminine Boudoir Experience

We now offer a full service boudoir session.  Professional hair and makeup, private studio, discreet albums and access to my client wardrobe is available for these confidence boosting, divine feminine portrait sessions.  These are the perfect gift for your spouse, or even just to treat yourself to a day of female empowerment!  For more information, please visit the pricing page or inquire here.  Join my private female-only Facebook group!
