Anna and Chris recently tied the knot with their immediate family present on the breathtaking dune cliffs in Glen Arbor. Capturing their intimate ceremony against the stunning backdrop of Sleeping Bear Dunes was an absolute joy. From Anna’s brimmed hat and veil to their golden retriever adorned with flowers, every detail added to the charm of their special day.

Sneak Peek Delivery

I’m thrilled to deliver a generous sneak peek of 80 curated photos from Anna and Chris’s wedding. This sneak peek showcases the artistry that goes into selecting and fine-tuning thousands of photos to perfection. Unlike some photographers who can deliver next-day sneak peeks, my seasonal workload requires a bit more time. Often, I photograph five or more projects on a single weekend and up to 14 projects in a week.

Workflow and Quality

Given my workload, I have found a sweet spot that balances client delivery, quality, and energy. My typical sneak peek delivery is within 1-2 weeks, and the final gallery delivery is at 3-4 weeks. This timeline ensures that every photo is given the attention it deserves, resulting in high-quality images that my clients cherish.

Why the Wait?

  1. Curating Thousands of Photos: Each session results in thousands of photos. I carefully curate the best shots, ensuring each image tells a part of the story.
  2. Fine-Tuning and Photoshopping: After selecting the best photos, I fine-tune and Photoshop them to ensure they meet the highest standards. This process takes time but is crucial for delivering the best results.
  3. Seasonal Workload: From May to October, my schedule is packed with multiple projects each week, especially during peak weekends. Balancing this workload with quality delivery is essential to maintaining the standard of my work.
