Literally YEARS of planning. Now you're finally married. The wedding was a huge success. It's all over now. It's just memories in the very recent past. Every day that past will get farther and farther away. Years will eventually tick by without you noticing. Loved ones will be born while others pass and each year you'll celebrate another year of marriage. What will you actually HAVE to remember the day by. Will you sit on your phone to pull up 2x4 pictures? Will you sit at the computer to look at an online gallery?

Printed products are the ONLY answer to honoring the most important milestone moments of your life. The highest quality that will last generations. Those perfect memories frozen in time. As you age, the pages in that hand-crafted book won't. As loved ones pass their images remain intact at the peak of happiness celebrating with you. As kids are born they see you on one of the happiest days of your life when their branch of this family tree began.

For the love-of-god, if there were ever anything to invest in properly,. . . it really is this. To not is honestly short-sighted. Ask anyone who's been married several years and has those years of experience behind them. The years go all too quick and now (right now) is too important not to honor.

In many ways when you hire Berryphotos you're hiring a day-of coordinator.

From the getting-ready phase of the day to the ceremony and into the reception, we're the only professional hired that's with you the ENTIRE day from start to finish. We automatically bring our years of experience to enhance your day.

When should hair/makeup be done? When should flowers arrive? When should you get in the dress? When should you leave for the ceremony? Are we doing a first look? Who should be present and ready for pictures and at what time?

In many cases, all of this is well before you even arrive to the reception venue.

Even at the venue, how do we coordinate a 30 person "Cousins" picture without it becoming a huge mess that takes too long and causes you frustration?

At some venues we may need to take it a step further and ensure there is actually champagne in your glasses before the toasts. Make sure there's a plate and forks for the cake cutting and even that dad is in the room when called upon for parent dances.

Little things like these can be avoided with our assistance. Our number 1 goal (even more than the pictures themselves) is to ensure you get the most out of the day with the least amount of stress and anxiety. Our decades of experience allows us to for-see what could potentially be an issue and resolve it before you even realize.

What should you expect? Here's a quick explanation.

  1. Initial consultation: Hosted at our studio we will discuss your vision for your wedding day and explain how our Wedding Experiences can help enhance your day. We will confirm which package best fits your needs and secure your date for you with a digital contract and deposit. If possible we will also schedule your engagement session.

  2. Engagement Session: When was the last time you had a dude staring at you with a camera telling you to kiss? It's weird, right? Getting the jitters out and feeling comfortable and natural in front of the camera happens during the engagement session. You'll learn posing techniques, see how we work and realize it's not scary but actually fun. Having a full hour dedicated to just the two of you, you'll experience an immersive personalized session proving a ton of variety in imagery. Whereas the wedding will have family, wedding party, first dance and other formalities, the engagement session is just the two of you - in normal clothes - creating images you'll cherish forever.

  3. Engagement Session Premiere: A week or so after the engagement session you'll be invited back to our studio for your first Premiere. This will be the first time you see these pictures and you will be absolutely blown away. At this Premiere we'll show a slide-show of the best images and discuss options of Wall Art, guest books, Love Letter Folios and other fantastic ideas of how to best display and enjoy your images.

  4. Pre-Wedding Meeting: About a month or so before your wedding day we'll meet again at our studio to go through your plans. We'll discuss the flow of events and hone in on timing such as when hair/makeup should be done, what time you should get in your dress and more. We'll discuss what groups or guests are important and make a plan for capturing larger group shots. Finally, we'll pre-design your wedding album using ideas that will be present at your wedding such as your invitation, centerpieces, clothing, signs and more. Our goal is to create a custom album presentation that is entirely based on YOUR wedding. We'll also discuss what walls you'll want to present these images on in your home after the wedding.

  5. YOUR WEDDING DAY: We play a far larger role than just taking pictures. We essentially become your day-of coordinator keeping you to your timeline and avoiding any pitfalls that could arise. As your only hired partner that's with you your entire day we have a lot of influence on how you experience your wedding day. Our expertise helps smooth out your day and lower your anxiety.

  6. Wedding Premiere: Within a month of your wedding we'll host your Premiere. We will have gone through the thousands of images taken to ensure each one meets our standards of quality. Will will have selected the best of the best from the entire day and designed all the internal pages of your album. We will show you a slide show of these pages as well as a 3D digital rendering of your album in its keepsake box. We will proof each page and confirm your Wall Art orders. With either full payment or a customized payment plan we will finalize your order and begin the creation of your personal art with our world-renowned partner Graphistudio in Venice Italy.

When your Wall Art and Album arrives from Italy we begin your personal art collection. Over the coming years we'll add to it with additional family, baby and other sessions to tell the story of your lives with the highest quality art.
