Digital Welcome Package

"I'm so honoured you chose me as your photographer! I can't wait to document your day and tell your story!" -Karen

Hey! Here is my welcome pack as well as my vendor guide! Being that you relate and are drawn to my style and expertise I thought I would share with you some of my all time favourite vendors who I have had the pleasure to work with over the years. Wedding planning can be hectic and sometimes after your venue and photographer is booked its hard to navigate where to go from there! So I'm here to help in anyway I can.

Tips for Your Day - less stress, more fun!

2 - If you have a wedding party, a steamer can be such a lifesaver!

3 - As a bride, have all of your details out and in one place, this makes it much easier for your photographer but also helps when your ready to know exactly where everything is.

4 - Decide ahead of time if you'd like to write and exchange letters with your bride/groom.

5 - Don't forget to eat! This goes for both the bride/groom

7 - Pre make a bridal survival kit. This includes things such as. Deodorant, Water, Advil, Granola Bar, Bobby Pins, Bandaids, Makeup, and a Lint Roller!

8 - Remember to take a small moment for just the two of you after your married. This could be as simple as five minutes together after your photographer whisks you away for sunset photos. But if you find a moment, take it in.

9 - Don't sweat the small stuff

10 - Delegate someone the day of to be downloading/airdroping photos from the guests phones that they are taking. It's so fun to go through all the iPhone selfies later in life! And its an easy thing to have someone doing the day of.
