Oak and Embers Photography Pricing Guide
I specialize in authentic love stories. Whether this means photographing the wedding of your dreams on top of a mountain or photographing your growing family in the tiny house that you have turned in to a home, I want to capture the truest forms of love. So many pieces of life are fleeting; you fall in love with someone, and before you know it, you’re planning your wedding day. Suddenly, your wedding has come and gone, and all you have to remember it by is all the memories you made on that day with loved ones, and the photographs hanging on your wall. Before you know it, your little apartment is no longer large enough to fit your growing family, and you’re moving in to the next place that you will turn in to a home. Your home shows signs of wear and tear as your babies grow up before your very eyes.
I encourage you to document every precious part of life. The people that you love are the reason why you have fond memories created during all the passing days. Document life. The good parts, and the bad. The laughter and the tears. The struggles and the joys. No part of life is too trivial to be documented.
When planning your session, I will help you pick locations that best fit your style and your personality. We will pick the best time of day when the golden light streams through the trees and hits you just right. We will hang out, get to know each other better, and you’ll look gorgeous in front of the camera. There will be no awkward ‘stand just like this’ or ‘do this with your face; I will give you plenty of direction and easy cues such as ‘snuggle in to each other’ or ‘run towards me while holding hands’. I will be able to help you plan everything out and answer each and every one of your questions!
If you elect to do a lifestyle session, I will be SO STOKED, and I think you will be too. I’m obsessed with lifestyle session. The wonderful part about lifestyle sessions is that you don’t have to plan out matching outfits, you don’t have to take your children out of their natural element, you don’t even have to leave your house. I will come to your house and document a little piece of your life. I want all the real and authentic moments, both the happy and the hard. Everything is worth remembering. I will work with you to plan out a handful of activities that you enjoy doing as a family. This can be anything, from running through the sprinkler in the backyard, to reading on the hammock, to cooking dinner as a family, and all the little in-between moments that are so easy to forget.
Wedding Pricing Guide
Wedding days are so incredibly important. This is the day that you and your soulmate vow to love each other for the rest of your days. You’ve poured so much of your time and effort in to this one day; wedding days are truly a labor of love. You want to remember every moment of this day. I want to be there for all the little in-between moments. I will use a documentary approach to photograph every little piece of your day. So many little moments happen throughout a wedding day, and I want you to be able to look back on your photographs and remember all the moments that may have otherwise been forgotten. I’ll be there for these little moments, and for the bigger moments. Every piece of your day will be well documented so that you can remember this day for years to come.
Before we get to the wedding day, we’ll start out by meeting up for coffee or drinks so that we can get to know each other better. If I’m going to be present on your wedding day, I don’t want to be a stranger that just shows up; I want to become your friend. After we initially get to know each other, I’ll help you plan out every step of your wedding day so that we can make sure we have plenty of time for every part of the day and be sure that we’re capturing some of that beautiful golden light in your portraits. We’ll also schedule an engagement session! An engagement session is a great way for me to get to know you better as a couple. Knowing how you interact with each other and how you show each other love will help me capture your wedding photos even more perfectly.
