Congratulations! You’ve met your soulmate. You’re planning your life together beginning with your wedding celebration and I’m here to help you every step of the way.
I truly believe that it’s crucial for my couples to be completely comfortable and at ease in front of my lens. In order for me to deliver those heirloom quality images that tell your unique story, we need to get to know each other a little bit long before your wedding day. Some couples prefer a dreamy more formal and dramatic style while others want their images to reveal their playful or adventurous style. It's all up to you. If you think we may be a good fit, let’s meet! I can’t wait to hear all your plans and curate the perfect collection that’s within your budget and meets your photography needs.
A 20% retainer fee and signed contract will secure your date.
I don’t just show up on your wedding day. In addition to meeting with you a few times before your wedding day, I’m working behind the scenes with you in mind. Often I coordinate with wedding planners, florists, venues and even clergy to make sure everything goes smoothly on your day. I love to visit venues the week of your wedding to assess lighting and discover perfect locations that will compliment your style. I might even texy you from Home Goods if I see something you've been searching for that perfectly matches your esthetic! Yep, I've done that!
The more we connect before your wedding, the better I’ll get to know you as a couple. Sharing Pinterest boards with me is not unusual and is a great way for me to learn more about what you love right down to the smallest detail.
Speaking of details – I really love to photograph beautiful details. Before the wedding I ask my couples to set aside a handful of meaningful pieces ( rings, heirlooms, shoes, perfume, jewelry, invitation etc.) so I can photograph them for you to remember.
On your big day, I show up ready for anything the day may bring. I’ve found a delicate balance between being directive to get formal shots and stepping back to capture authentic moments. In other words, I know when to be hiding out on the sidelines, and when to be shooting on the dance floor with you!
Within 10 weeks of your wedding, your images will be ready to view at your reveal meeting, where we will sip champagne and exchange memories of your day. Your digital images will also be placed in a password protected online viewing gallery. Canvas wall art, heirloom quality prints and albums are also available.
Whether it’s the actual day you pop the big question, or the days that follow, I’m there to tell your story. Each engagement gallery should reflect who you are as a couple. I’m happy to help find the perfect location – a hike in the woods, playing on the beach or taking a walk through a park, any way we can tell your story.
+ up to 2 ½ hour session on location in WNY
+ 2 outfit changes
+ Professionally edited digital images delivered in a password protected online gallery
+ Print release
+ Retainer fee of $100 and signed contract to secure your session
Some wedding collections include an engagement session
"Reen did a fantastic job capturing my bridal shower so I’ll never forget it! She was very prepared and professional- she asked for a list of must-have photos before the event to make sure we didn’t forget anything! Her photographs of the details are so creative. I am so thankful we had Reen there to photograph such a special memory."
"Reen captured absolutely beautiful pictures of our family. She came to our house and spent so much of her time making sure she got exactly what we wanted. She was so understanding and knowledgeable of our newborns schedule and limits. I would recommend her to anyone!!!!"
We wanted a special gift for my mother and Rene helped us deliver. She helped coach us, but also let us be our silly selves. The pictures she took reflect the love and enjoyment we share when we are together, and are an amazing token that we can keep forever!
