The Wedding Experience

and

for the head-over-heels in love who cherish
WHIMSICAL DETAILS        JOYFUL MOMENTS. 

From your initial inquiry to the final delivery of your images, I’m most excited about getting to know you two as a couple and as new friends. It is truly an honor to be the one to capture beautiful, magical, and joyful images for you and your family’s future generations to remember your wedding day by!

We serve a limited number of very special brides and grooms each year because we believe that every couple deserves photos they’ll treasure forever and and experience they’ll never forget. 

Every wedding day is sacred to me, and I care just as much about my bride and groom’s marriage as I do their wedding photos.

The more weddings I shoot, the more that I fall in love with this job! The joy, the excitement, the whimsical details, the hugs and tears… I love every second of it (especially the cake)! I have one of the most important jobs in the photography industry and I still can’t believe how lucky I am to be apart of so many couples wedding days! 

Over the years, I’ve come to find that my absolute favorite weddings to date – from the images to the unforgettable memories made with my brides and grooms – have been ones where I’ve walked away with genuine friendships that I’ve developed with my couples through being their wedding photographer. 

"... I love every second of it."

After shooting 100+ weddings over the past few years, I have seen and photographed it alL!

The Process

next ⟶

Your wedding photography should be an extension of your personality and style! I serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants joyful and magical portraits on her wedding day, then she needs more than just a photographer who shows up and takes pretty pictures... She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with me is determining if I am the perfect fit for you! Are you upbeat like me? Are you driven and goal oriented like I am? Are you down-to-earth but love the whimsical side of things? Then we might be on the right track! After getting to know you online, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process!

01. Let’s Be Friends!

Yay!!! You’re a Bailey Elle Bride! I am SO excited I can’t stand it! Now we need to secure your date so we can make this dream a reality! I’ll send you an online booking proposal where you will be able to review your collection details, pay your deposit, and put your pretty signature on paper (we’ll, online paper that is). And now that you’re officially stuck with me, let the fun begin! You will be sent my custom guides with everything you need to know about your wedding experience, and we’ll start planning your engagement session!

02. Save the date!

Your engagement is the key my process and where I truly get to know my couples! Your custom bridal guide will help you plan what to wear, and they'll help you prep your (probably nervous!) fiancé for a fun date in front of the camera! The engagement session is the most important part of the Wedding Experience! It's during this time together that we'll really have an opportunity to get to know each other and build up our trust! And don’t worry, I will help you through EVERYTHING! Posing and getting my couples to feel comfortable is one of my favorite parts of portrait photography! After your session you’ll be featured on the blog and will also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share!

03. the engagement session!

As your wedding day gets closer, I will send you an online questionnaire that will help us finalize all the details of your day, including your timeline! I LOVE creating custom timelines for my couples, using my experience from the 100+ weddings I’ve photographed, to make sure your day is perfect and can be photographed like you dream! We will work together to plan your day so you can have all the magazine-worthy photos you’ve dreamed of!

04. The timeline!

The day you’ve been waiting for is finally here! I believe in telling my couple’s entire story on their wedding day, so I’ll be there to photograph you stepping into your dress all the way until your guests send you off with a sparkler exit! Your day is going to go by unbelievably fast, so I make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & classic way! The Monday following your wedding, I will post a sneak peek on Facebook & Instagram for you and all of your friends & family to swoon over!

05. your wedding day!

3 weeks after your wedding, you’ll receive your online gallery filled with HUNDREDS of memories from your incredible day! This is a big moment! Grab some wine (and don’t forget the tissues), cuddle up on the couch, and maybe put on your favorite wedding music as you relive the magic of your wedding day. If you ordered a wedding album with your collection, you will receive a draft for your custom album design few days after your gallery has been delivered! Soon, your gorgeous family heirloom will be sitting on your coffee table for you and your family to admire forever!

"We could not have asked for a better photography team for our wedding! Bailey went above and beyond for us in all ways. She is thoughtful, thorough, professional, knowledgeable, and hilarious, and has a super sweet personality and a calming presence that we were very grateful for throughout the year leading up to our big day. She is conscientious of the smallest of details as well as the big-picture items, and in combination with her raw talent and skill, we truly did not have to stress about anything in relation to photography! Bailey and Tanner interacted with our family, friends, and vendors with poise, professionalism, and big smiles all day long! Thank you forever to Bailey and Tanner for capturing these moments and memories in such a magical way!"

"We saw pictures of a wedding Bailey shot online when searching for a wedding photographer and was sold on having her take pictures of our special day. It was the absolute best choice we could have made! Bailey was such a joy to work with, she kept things TOTALLY organized on the day of and subsequently kept me incredibly calm and stress free. Her pictures capture the day in the most magical way. She truly has a gift for not only being a photographer, but also for investing in the couple and making them feel incredibly special (not to mention beautiful) on their wedding day. I really can't say enough about how satisfied we were with Bailey, she was truly such a important part of our wedding day. We will cherish the pictures for a lifetime.

"We honestly cannot say enough good things about Bailey! Aside from being an incredible photographer, she is one of the sweetest people we have ever met. Bailey guided us every step of the way during the wedding planning process - from getting us comfortable in front of the camera at our engagement session to helping us develop a wedding day timeline. She made sure that our wedding day went smoothly from start to finish, and was such a joy to be around. We were in awe when we saw our wedding photos because Bailey perfectly and beautifully captured every little moment of our big day. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our decision to have Bailey as our wedding photographer!"

Bailey Elle Photography does amazing work! I can't even begin to write the amazing words she deserves! I came across her photos when looking for a venue. She is the reason I originally fell in love with the place I got married. What she does with lightning makes it look unreal and so beautiful. Her and Tanner make an amazing team; super friendly and energetic! She is also very open to whatever you want! I asked for 2 favors from them and they did them without question! Not only is she an amazing photographer but she has endless suggestions whenever you need them! She also created our timeline to make our day run perfectly! Don't even think about it, just book her! She is worth every dime and more!

"Our wedding was two months ago and we still get people coming up saying how amazing the pictures turned out and how talented Bailey is. I’m not kidding you - all of my friends have now picked her as their wedding photographer! I can’t say enough about how great she made the day. She is calm, gets a ton of shots, and has a quick turn around time (we got all of our edited photos on our one month anniversary - how cute is that?!) She is the best photographer out there - hands down! Thank you again, Bailey for making our day and our photos a dream come true!"

"Bailey is very helpful right from the beginning! She does an amazing job at not only playing the role of your photographer, but also provides assistance in planning out the day to ensure everything goes smoothly. Her knowledge of how long things take from her previous wedding photography experience truly helps the planning of the day. The best part of having her as part of my day was keeping everything running smoothly and in an orderly fashion. The investment you make in your photographer is a big one for your wedding day, and the investment in Bailey is well worth it! She makes you feel very comfortable and listens to what you want and incorporates that into her sessions!"

"Bailey will go above and beyond any expectation you would ever have for a wedding photographer. She makes both the bride and the groom feel so special, handing out compliments left and right. She is so easy going and will help you with anything you need. She makes you feel so comfortable from the second you meet her to the wedding day itself. I loved having her at my wedding because just kept everything running smoothly and on time. She also captured every moment perfectly from the ceremony to the reception. I love that she gets to know each one of her brides and grooms individually and that she takes the time to remember your personality and style. It makes you admire every photograph individually. The investment is DEFINITELY worth it and if I had to do it all over again I would choose her every time. She is more than just a photographer, she became a great friend throughout the process!"

"Bailey is just all around incredible. She is so fun, relaxed, and easy to work with! My favorite thing about her is how she’s capable of making you feel so comfortable even if the situation is somewhat awkward, all while being professional! Everything from our (extremely humid!) engagement session to our (running very behind) wedding Bailey helped us feel so relaxed even when the odds were stacked against us! She helped our day flow seamlessly and the images turned out amazing! You'd never guess that our day was running behind by the amount of photos we received! I could not recommend her more. She is 100% worth the investment. So get her while you can, you will not regret it!!"

what does this include? ⟶

Bailey Elle clients can customize their collections with any combination of the products we offer. But the #1 product that we hope each client will choose to include in their package is a custom designed album. An album tells the story of your day in a way that no other product can. And it lives on to tell that story to your children and grandchildren.

When you face trials in your marriage, and like my grandma always said, "it's not IF you will face trials, but WHEN," I challenge you to sit side by side on the sofa and look through your wedding album together. I don't know any couple who could do this and not be reminded of their love and the fact that they can make it through anything... as long as they have one another.
