Christopher & Nikki
Wedding Photography Information & Details
October 19th, 2024
Washington, D.C. USA
Meet your photographer, Adela
My photography journey started when my college roommate asked me photograph her wedding in 2018- at that point, I had 0 knowledge of anything related to professional photography, or what it takes to capture an entire wedding day! To give you some context... I studied Public Relations and Business Administration in college...so I did know a thing or two about what looks good & how to market it. I was always a bit more picky than the average person when taking photos, and maintaining a perfect Instagram aesthetic before it was cool to do so, ha! I said 'yes!' to her wedding and before I knew it, I had booked 10+ weddings in one year!
My principles & priorities as your wedding photographer are-
- Cultivate & foster a relationship to gain trust
- Communicate to ensure I understand how to best serve you
- Educate you as my clients on the importance of lighting as it relates to photography & the decisions I make when posing and choosing locations
- Join alongside you, your families, and friends on one of the most important days of your lives!!!

When will we get our photos?
You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 6 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!
Can we add/remove À la Carte items even after booking?
Yes! We can always add hours of coverage, rehearsal dinner coverage, or albums. Or remove them if you change your mind! We'll handle these through separate invoices apart from the main wedding day coverage invoice.
How many pictures will we receive?
Photo count varies on the hours of coverage and nature of the wedding, I aim to shoot approximately 90-100 images per hour. For a full wedding day, you can expect to receive anywhere between 1,100-1,500 photos.
Do you have business insurance?
Yes I do! If your venue requires a copy of my Certificate of Insurance, please put me in touch with the event manager and I am happy to provide them with the proper documentation.
We are ready to book! What's next?
If you're ready to move forward simply respond to the follow up email I sent you- I will immediately open your email, probably super excited! I will follow up within 1-2 business days with the online contract and the steps to schedule your engagement session! :)
