When you work with me, you’re not just getting a photographer, you’re getting a new best friend. Our photo session will be just like hanging out with your bestie, except you’ll be hanging out and I’ll be taking pictures of you.
I like to capture REAL moments. If I don’t get a genuine smile, then my work is not done. I’m talking real, eyes smiling, smile. How do you know if you’re smiling with your eyes? When you cover your mouth in a photo you can still see the happy, real smile in your eyes.
I am a full-service photographer and take care of consultations, photos, editing, and printing. I offer professional hair and makeup, and help with wardrobe styling and location choices. You’ll be pampered and left looking and feeling fantastic!
I offer fully customizable photo packages including collages, wall art, albums, etc. I allow my clients to build their own a la carte packages based on what you tell me you are interested in during our pre-session consultation. You’re hiring me because you want photos that are going to last a lifetime, not just photos to post on your Instagram. I do understand that you’ll be itching to post your photoshoot online as soon possible though, which is why I offer a quick editing turnaround time and digital copies with each print purchase.
I understand that all couples are on different budgets when it comes to their wedding. I offer a variety of packages at different price points. Looking to get an exact quote? Contact me. Just visiting to get a price estimate for your wedding? Couples I work with typically plan to spend about $3500, so I offer many custom options both above and below that price point depending on what you are looking for from your wedding day photography.
But wait, there’s more! Wedding clients who have signed their contract and paid the date retainer fee receive a free engagement session. But wait, there’s even more! Engagement shoots include hair and makeup as well as photos at the location of your choice. I am happy to travel anywhere to photograph you in your happy place. I believe that feeling comfortable where you take pictures creates even better photos, ones you’ll want to look at for years to come.
In addition to hair, makeup, and location, portrait sessions also include a phone consultation before the photoshoot. I love talking with the subject(s) of my photos so we can get to learn more about each other and the story you want your pictures to tell. Booking a portrait session without a wedding package like an anniversary or family photo? Portrait fees start at just two payments of $250, and still include hair and makeup as well as a phone consultation before the date.
Session times vary. I will never make you feel rushed, but will never ask you to keep photographing if you feel like you are done. Wasted time creates forced smiles. Fake smiles lead to poor photos. Who wants to pay for poor photos?
Not sure why you should pick me instead of the other photographers you’ve been scoping out? I understand, hiring a wedding photographer can be daunting. You want someone you can trust, someone who listens to you, a person who makes your wedding day as important to them as it is to you. I’ve been there, I understand the importance of wedding photography, and am flattered when clients choose me to be a part of their big day.
As you decide on your photographer, you may face hesitation, uncertainty, or just have a boatload of questions! I am here to listen (and talk) to you about what you are looking for in your photographer and how we can work together. Finding a photographer who works for you is a lot like online dating!
My photos are romantic, dramatic, and fun. I like to get the sweet romantic images, the candid moments like stealing a kiss on the cheek when you think no one is looking. I enjoy playing with lighting and colors to capture some dramatic moments. Most of all, I want my clients to have fun and let their playful side shine through in their photos.
Booking with me means booking with a photographer you can trust, who will do everything in her power to give you the best photography experience, and will leave you with photos you will display proudly and pass on for generations.
I hired Raelyn for my wedding. The pictures she took were breath taking. She pays a lot of attention to the smallest details. To the end of the day, capturing the smallest details are the most important for a photographer to capture. I highly recommend her services because her photography skills are taken to the next level. Keep it up Raelyn!!
