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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.

Your wedding day is going to be so incredible that it feels like one crazy, exciting whirlwind from start to finish! You may find yourself closing the door to your wedding night suite and saying, “Wait… it’s over?! It feels like it just began!” That’s where wedding photography comes in! This is one of the most important parts of planning because it’s an investment in your REAL memories. Your wedding day only happens once, and you deserve joyful, timeless images to show your future family when you talk about the day your life changed forever.
