Now it's time to start your next adventure and enjoy being married! I hope you're able to take a few days after your big day to at least relax, even if you can't do a proper honeymoon. Weddings take SO MUCH planning and time and are done in the blink of an eye. Take a few days to relive your celebration and recoup from the chaos. While you do that, I'll be busily working on sorting through all the images, pulling out the eye blinks, blurred images (even the best pros get those from time to time), and picking out the best of each group photo as I tend to take multiples to accommodate eye blinks, open mouths, and turned heads. I promise I won't take out quality photos of your family and friends.
Because I LOVE what I do and I know you're so over the moon excited to be finally married, I want to share with you some of my favorite images from your big day. I try to get these out within 24 hours, but please be patient if it takes me up to 48. The images I send will be quick edits that are worthy of sharing online, but they may not be exactly the same as the final version I deliver later.
This is the lengthiest part of the post-wedding process. Weddings can have over 500 images to edit and with my perfectionistic tendencies, this can take several weeks to accomplish. I would LOVE to be able to edit every image in one sitting, but my eyes just can't take it, and that many photos take HOURS to edit even on an initial pass. In addition, I look through the images at various times of day and on various devices to make sure the colors, contrast, composition, etc are EXACTLY how I want them to best showcase your amazing day.
Once your images are fully edited, I will upload them to my online gallery service. You'll see an email from me with information on how to access your photos, download, share with friends, order professional quality prints, and more.
Inside your gallery, you'll want to create a list of your FAVES that you'd like to go in your album. I know the ones I love, but I want to know what YOU love most! After not getting an album from my own wedding PLUS having to edit ALL my photos, I make sure EVERY couple gets an album to commemorate their big day.
Once I have your list of favorite images, I'll get to work designing your wedding album. I will then send you a digital mockup of your album so we can make any changes you'd like to make before I send it off to the printer. It will be sent directly to YOU usually within a few weeks of sending in the order. I can't wait for you to see and show it off! If you think of it, I'd love to see a video of you unboxing and opening it ( like a social reel or story)!
Share the Social Love
As you (hopefully) fall in love with your images, I really hope you'll show me some social media love by tagging @stephaniecoulterphotography on Facebook and Instagram when you post your images. Also, if you haven't already LIKE or FOLLOW me on both platforms so I can also tag you!
How did I do?
Part of being a perfectionist is having the constant wonder of how I did and what clients think of me, so now is your time to let me know.
Please BE HONEST so I know where I have room to improve and where I excelled. I always hope you're absolutely 1000% excited and happy and I would LOVE to share some of your feedback as part of my client testimonials.
