Lisette & Alex
DAR, Washington, D.C.
It was so great finally getting to meet you and chat last night! I am soo excited about your wedding and that we both share a love for a chic, classic, D.C. look at DAR! p This proposal includes information about me as your photographer, collection details & other FAQ we may not have touched on during our consult call. At the bottom of the proposal, I included links to a full engagement session at the cathedral, and a full wedding at Strathmore Mansion (a venue that has a similar look & vibe to DAR). Enjoy!
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!!!
