Capturing your wedding day, to fully encompass just the magnitude of your love is of utmost importance. The look your momma gave you when she helped you slip into your dress, the smile your partner had as you walked down the aisle. The hugs you received from the people you love most. Remember your day exactly how it happened. With vibrancy, joy, and love.

Your wedding day is made up of fleeting moments. Make sure your images bring you back to the day you loved most.

next step, please

I know just how many decisions you're currently making during this oh so very exciting season. Once you've decided that you want to work together, please reach out to me as soon as possible.

Once you've inquired & we have established my availability, I can answer any and all questions you may. I would love to welcome you to the caynay family.

01.

lets talk.

Dates are secured on both your end and mine with a signed contract and retainer. Once that is complete, we will be officially official!

You'll then receive access to the wedding experience guide, the engagement session scheduler, preferred vendor lists, and more!

02.

joining the family

One of my favorite parts of the wedding experience. Getting a chance to get to know you and your partner is so very important to me. The biggest bonus? You get some beautiful photos out of it.

Within the wedding guide is a styling section. This includes ideas for what to wear and color palettes that will photograph beautifully.

03.

engagement session

Newly added to the caynay experience and I am so excited about it. This all included 2 hour detail shoot allows us to photograph all those beautiful designed details prior to the big day.

Simply drop your items off and my home, go grab a coffee, and free up 1 hour of coverage on your wedding day!

04.

detail design shoot

A well thought out timeline helps ensure we're making the most of our time together. Fill out the questionnaire within your portal and 7 days later, I will deliver a custom timeline to fit your day.

After 10+ years of shooting weddings, having a helping hand in the process alleviates so much stress off my couples.. & helps make sure we're making the best use of our time together.

05.

100 days out

Thirty days before your big day is when you'll receive the wedding questionnaire. This questionnaire answers any and all questions I have pertaining your big day.

By requesting this be complete within 2 weeks, allows all loose ends with me wrapped up so that you can enjoy the final exciting moments before your wedding.

06.

30 days out

The moment everyone has been waiting for. Everyone you love is in one room & that is pretty dang incredible.

Making sure you feel like you were truly able to celebrate your day is of utmost importance. Working efficiently & gracefully allows you to soak up the moment first and beautiful photos second.

07.

it's the big day!

One of my absolute favorite parts of my workflow. Within 24 hours of your wedding day, you'll have a small gallery of 25-35 images from your big day. My couples are encouraged to download, share, and announce their marriage to the world!

A blog post will also go live 4 or 5 days following your big day. It'll tell the story of your day from start to finish.

08.

sneak peek & the blog

Editing is easily one of my favorite parts of my job. Getting to make your images come to life is so unbelievably special to me.

Couples will receive their galleries within 7-10 days following their wedding. Usually my couples are still on their honeymoon which I think is extra sweet.
