weddings & Portraits
Congratulations bride-to-be! If you're anything like me, you have made a detailed wedding to-do list and are ready to check off "find a photographer"! I can't wait to be your confidence booster, your veil fluffer, and your memory preservationist, on the happiest day of your life! Thats why I am beyond thrilled that you would consider inviting me to stand by your side, camera in hand, on your wedding day! Ready to learn more? Click the link below to view the process, then fill out my contact form so we can make sure your date is open!
Now that you've set your big date, it's time to set our own! Let's meet for coffee so I can hear all about your walk down the aisle. From your centerpieces to your wedding colors, I want to hear all about it.
This is also the perfect time for you to ask me any questions you might have. I can't wait to get to know you, you're love story, and what your vision is for your wedding!
If, after our coffee date, we seem like a good fit let's pen your wedding onto the calendar.
Booking your date is easy! Once you sign your contract, and pay your retainer fee you will officially become a Sthefanie Carriker Bride, HOORAY!!!
Whether you're hoping to create effortless save the dates, or just looking for beautiful photos for your home, your engagement session is an exciting part of the wedding experience.
Not only will you come away with gorgeous images, this is also a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera, and for me to show you how I will pose, guide, and direct you into looking and feeling your best. This will ensure that you will feel like a professional during portrait time on your wedding day.
Before your wedding we will keep in touch on a regular basis, and go over all the details.
With the custom timeline that I will create for you, I can help you decide when to start the ceremony to ensure the best light for portraits.
The big day has finally arrived! We've prepped, you've planned and now all you have to do is be completely in the moment. I will be ready with my camera to catch all the highlights (and grab you that extra slice of cake).
Your bridal bouquet flowers will still look fresh and vibrant when your email dings to tell you that your wedding day sneak peeks have arrived! Just one week after you say, "I do" you'll be able to relive some of the biggest highlights of the day!
Just 4-6 weeks later, your final gallery will arrive. With this online gallery, you'll be able to print, share and relive every kiss, twirl, and laugh from the best day of your life!

*Having an intimate celebration? I know that all weddings are unique, and I would love create a custom quote for you.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Every session will receive a style guide to help you look and feel your best during your shoot. I also love to help each of my clients feel confident in their wardrobe choices, and will gladly help you choose and plan your outfits.
WHERE ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS TO SHOOT ?
I am happy to shoot wherever you want. Need some help choosing a location that best fits your needs? I will be glad to give you a list of my favorite places to shoot, and assist you in choosing the perfect spot for your session!
WHAT TIME DO YOU SCHEDULE YOUR SESSIONS?
The two hours before sunset provides the most beautiful glowy light known as "golden hour", and I schedule all sessions during this time.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
Your online gallery will be ready and delivered to you via email within 1-2 weeks.
HOW DO I SECURE MY WEDDING DATE?
All that is needed to secure your wedding date is a signed contract and a 50% deposit.
DO YOU ALWAYS USE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Yes! A second shooter is essential to help capture every detail on a fast paced wedding day. Having an extra set of hands (and another camera) allows us to shoot multiple details that could be happening at the same time, which gives you a full gallery that tells your entire story.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
Your wedding day gallery will be ready within 4-6 weeks. Sneak peaks will be ready within 1-2 weeks.
