INTRODUCTION

You’re getting married! Although, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed right now as you sift through business cards of vendors and think to yourself “how the frick do you plan a wedding?” I hope you can take some time to dance around the kitchen and embrace the absolute raddest love story to ever exist - yours.

I can’t wait to hear all about colours and decor, but I’m even more stoked to hear about your day-to-day passions, life and guilty tv show addictions. It’s not every day you get hitched to the person of your dreams, and I can’t wait to get a glimpse into all the awesomeness you already see in each other.


ABOUT ME

RACHEL CONNELL

You can call me Rae! I’ve found quote a lot of purpose painting the hushed giggles, bashful smiles and proud celebrations around me in light. I’m helplessly in love with love and feel grateful that I get to capture these big and small moments with you where time can stand still. Lover of Instagram dogs, hiking and books with inscriptions. I’m a creative soul, who always has room for dessert and believes with all her heart in the power of community. It’s important to me that your images capture the essence of who you are. For that reason, my sessions will be relaxed so that you have the opportunity to be yourselves and enjoy the moment you’re in. I’ll gently guide you and do my best to make you feel comfortable in front of the lens. We’ll share belly laughs, stories and probably walk away with a few inside jokes. It’s my hope we become friends. It’s my hope that we watch each other grow. It’s my hope that I’m not just your wedding photography, but a continued support in your story.

taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing oreo cookies.

I would describe my style as relaxed, moody, candid and intimate. I like to capture in-between moments and details that tell the story of your day through a creative lens. I’m inspired by both the old and new as I’m often found thinking of new ways to use technology, all while vintage polaroids develop in my back pocket.

 
 
 

WHAT TO EXPECT

  1. QUESTIONNAIRE

    I’ll have you fill out a short form to give me an idea of your vision. I love to meet for coffee at this point or Skype in our pjs if we live in different cities. This is the perfect time to lurk me on Instagram and ask any questions you have to ensure we’re a good fit.

  2. SEAL THE DEAL

    Once we’re ready to rock, I’ll send you a contract and invoice for you to review, sign and return to me. Wedding dates are only secured once a contract has been finalized so I would recommend doing this as soon as possible to secure your date! A 50% deposit will be due upon signing the contract.

  3. ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS

    For local couples, we’ll select a date and start planning your engagement photos. This session will last 1 hour and is a great opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera. Out-of-province couples may forego the session for destination casual-dress session or a wreck-the-dress session.

  4. PRE-WEDDING

    Around a month prior to your wedding, we’ll meet or Skype again to finalize your schedule and travel bookings. Now is a great time to wrap up your payment plan, pass along the names of your vendors and decide on a shot list if applicable. Are you stoked yet? You should be.

  5. THE BIG DAY

    Pure fun, joy and killer dance moves. I’ll be with you for the entire day to capture all the excitement and candid moments. You’ve worked hard to plan today, now get out there and soak it all in!

  6. POST WEDDING

    Within 48 hours, you’ll receive a few sneak peek images (for the ‘gram of course). 1 to 2 months afterward, I’ll send you the full e-gallery and mail you any physical versions you have ordered. You’ll be sent your print release granting you full rights to the use and print of images.

Special offers for destination weddings + elopements.
