HOW IT WORKS
Either the day of the wedding or before is acceptable. You can pay in either a check or through e-transfer.
You can pay me in payments or in the total.
We had wedding and newborn photos done by Rhonda, and loved both experiences. She is incredibly easy to shoot with! Our pictures turned out so good, and we'll love them forever.

Please bring clothing and all accessories needed. I will shoot up to two different outfits for up to two hours. You choose the type of location (country, urban, or studio) and don’t forget chapstick and snacks for the groom (they tend to get “hangry” more often than the bride).I will capture a variety of close-ups, full body shots, and other posesfor you to choose from. Some will be fun and some romantic, you maybe surprised at the photos you prefer, so just trust the process!
Many brides are choosing to bring their grooms to the Bridal Session.I think that this is a great choice because it can take a lot of stress awayfrom the actual wedding day. We can go to multiple locations and takea larger variety of shots. I can even photograph a “first look” whichshows a more intimate moment when your groom first sees you as hisbride. Often when this is done on the wedding day, there are a lot of people watching on as you experience this moment, but if you choose to do it during your bridal session there is a greater feeling of privacy andromance. If you choose to not include your groom, we will take a variety of shots with the bride. We can try out multiple locations and different looks. Consider what location would look best with your dress (country, urban, or studio). If you need any advice or an opinion, please email me your dress and I can help you figure out the best option. Also, limit the number of friends and family (mother) to only one or two others which greatly relieves the stress and anxiety that can happen with larger groups.
We think Rhonda is amazing. We will cherish these images forever.
We can’t thank you enough.

if we dont need engagements can we have it cheaper?
I usually encourage people to have a photo shoot with me before
the actual wedding day. I want wedding photos to show who a couple are. Some couples are playful and some bicker. Some are very physically affectionate and some are more hands off. Sometimes one person is more uncomfortable in front of the camera. These are things that are helpful to know before I'm shooting wedding pictures. It's not that I CAN'T do it.
But it's easier to capture who a couple is together when I have been with them before. The point of it is to get to know the couples more. You can choose bridals instead. If you still don’t want that either, the price stays the same. It is more of a bonus than something that is adding cost.
what are bridals or day after shoots?
Essentially Wedding pictures that are taken before or after the actual wedding day. Bridals before and Day after, obviously after. Lots of the couples that I've done bridals for have used them as big blow ups for decorations at their weddings. And it makes it so that on the wedding day they wouldn't feel as much pressure. We still take pictures on the wedding day but we've already taken the beautiful portraits so there is more time for celebrating. And we can choose better light for better pictures. A few couples hired me only for bridals because I was booked their wedding day.
why invitations in the cost?
My college degree is actually in Graphic Design. That is where I started out. And I just kept seeing pictures that were squashed and didn't look great on the invitations and really it was driving me crazy. So I started offering just to do that too. It was only to make sure that didn't happen any more. It’s just another bonus and not a cost added on. You don’t have to use it at all, but it’s avaliable to those who don’t have another plan.
where should we get our invites printed?
Depending on the time you have until your wedding there are a few options. Locally, the University of Lethbridge does a great job in their printing department. Online there are lots of choices for great printing. And yes, I can be more specific if you need a list.
how much time do we need for pictures?
Obviously I believe that wedding pictures are an important part of your wedding day. Feeling rushed doesn’t make for good pictures. At the LEAST we need 2 hours of picture taking. No driving to locations is included into that.
