Zach & Ellen
The Anchor Inn
It was great meeting you both yesterday during our consult call and learning more about the vision of your wedding day! I am soo excited we both share a love for a soft tones, pastel colors, and bright photos, as well as the importance of family portraits and the ceremony. I hope we get to work together! This proposal includes information about me as your photographer, collection details & other FAQ we may not have touched on during our consult call. 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!!!

Complementary 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 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 go ahead and begin scheduling your engagement session! This is a time for us to get to know each other, teach you the way I photograph, pose, and just have fun! As I mentioned on the call, I've photographed engagement sessions at botanical gardens, lot's of parks and at Longwood Gardens! As mentioned on the call I am including a link at the bottom of the proposal page to a previous Longwood Gardens engagement session, National Cathedral and two full wedding galleries. Botanical gardens photograph best anytime between April-October! Your engagement session can last anywhere between 1-2 hours depending on location, and how many outfits you bring. Typically, I schedule them 1.5 hours before sunset, so the exact time depends on the month! Ahead of the engagement session, I will send over a Portrait Questionnaire that asks a few questions about you two as a couple, your favorite features, and your must have photos!
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. 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 10-15 high resolution highlight images from the wedding within 2 days, 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!
