01: LETS BE FRIENDS
We don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! We know that LM Brides are unique and we work VERY hard to find them! We serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants joyful, genuine portraits of herself & her new groom, then she needs more than just pretty pictures. She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with us is determining if we are the perfect fit for you! After getting to know you online, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process! ...
02: SAVE THE DATE
Yay!! You were made to be a Lillie Mae Couple! Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! We’ll send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your deposit to make everything officially official! Now that you’re an official LM Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!! ....
Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... we’ll teach you EVERYTHING! We thrive at helping our couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED. I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes have gone by! That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together! After your engagement session you’ll be featured on the KJ Blog and will also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.
04: TIMELINE TALK
Once we’re 8 weeks out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! We love creating custom timelines for our couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? We work with our Lillie Mae Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! After 7 years of photographing weddings and portraits in a magazine-quality manner, we know how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!
05: YOUR WEDDING DAY!
It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! We believe in telling the full story of our couples' wedding days and so we never shoot less than 8 hours. This day is going to be a blur to you and so we make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is our portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet our couple’s families and best friends!! After the wedding day, you’ll be featured on the Lillie Mae Blog the following WEDNESDAY, #WEDDINGWEDNESDAY! We like to share our weddings while everyone is still on cloud nine from the big day instead of keeping our couples waiting!
06: ALBUM DESIGN
After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of them! We encourage our Lillie Mae Couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!) and you can begin the customization process!
