Wedding Photography Information & Details

Woodend Nature Sanctuary & Historic Mansion, 8940 Jones Mill Rd, Chevy Chase, MD 20815

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!

Engagement session








This is MY process:

I. Book your date

The booking process is simple! Once you've decided to go ahead and book with me, I will send over an online contract - one or two people can be included on it. The 25% deposit is due when contract is signed, and the rest one month ahead of the wedding day! Payment plans are an option, and we can work together to create one that works best for you. Payments can be made online or with a check- check is preferred!

II. Schedule engagement session

Once we've gotten the paperwork out of the way, we can focus on your engagement session! This can be scheduled anytime between when you officially book with me or 6-9 months out from the wedding. A session will last anywhere between 1-2 hours depending on your preferred location and how many outfits you would want to bring. It can also be just 30 minutes, totally up to you! I usually recommend this to couples I haven't worked with before since it's a great way to get you used to the camera and meet ahead of the wedding day.

III. The Wedding Day

A month out from the wedding, I will send over a questionnaire that goes over info. about your day such as, colors, themes, finalized timeline, list of family portraits, other wedding vendor contact information & any final details you need to relay to me!

At this point, I will also send over the portfolio/social media accounts of my second shooter that will be accompanying me for your wedding (if applicable). On your wedding day, I will be there ready to create and tell your love story through photos! I will be using the timeline we agreed on to coordinate the wedding day, as well as work with the venue coordinator to ensure a smooth transition to different parts of the day.

You will receive 20-50 high resolution highlight images from the wedding within 72 hours, and the full gallery within 4-6 weeks. All images will be edited and delivered in an online format through Pixieset- from there you can download, favorite, and share your photos with family & friends! You will also be able to order prints directly through the online gallery & select from various options of finishes, sizes and framing- all in one stop! Through it all, I will be here to walk alongside you, answer questions & provide input whenever needed!

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! :)
