You will grow old with these photographs.

There's a ton of pressure in this industry surrounding wedding photography. They tell you all the time how it's the "one tangible thing" left from your wedding . . . and they're pretty much right. But that doesn't make the decision easier.

Wedding photography isn't just about photographing what's there. It's about photographing what's in between. The hug your grandma slipped you. That first nervous smile after your first look. Every single guest laughing on the patio during your party.

The passionate over the pretty.

Wedding photography isn't just for the now. It's for your 5 years from now, your 50 years from now.

 

It's your turn for the dusty old black and white photo on the mantle. 

 

These are your moments.

Together, we'll spend time with your family. With your friends. We'll make some real honest images of the two of you filled with laughter and joy and tears and hopefully some portraits that ground you.

We're in this together.

every collection includes:

* Initial consultation regarding your dream photographs and what those look like

* Easy booking process with an online contract and online payment for services

* Questionnaire regarding family photo lists, relationship insights, and moments for reflection on your planning process

* Suggested photo timeline written by Makayla (with amount of time spent on portraits dictated by you)

* Open communication and endless options to ask for advice, insight, what-ifs, and nerve calming talk

* Multiple check-in's throughout the process to ensure your marriage party will be going exactly as you plan (as much as possible, of course)

* A hands-off approach on the day of your party, to photograph you and your guests as they experience your gathering

* A timely turnaround of 6-8 weeks for your images (typically sooner, as you'll see)

* A stream of resources and advice through The Autumn Dog's blog 

My best friend said she could look at the photos and see how much we loved each other.

WHAT

THEY

SAY

I cannot begin to express how much of a joy Makayla has been to work with. Right from the beginning her kindness and talent made us positive she was the right choice for our wedding. Makayla did our engagement and wedding photos and I can say with absolute certainty that I adore them. They're gorgeous. So many of the pictures are of me and my husband laughing and having a good time together. My best friend said she could look at the photos and see how much we loved each other. Makayla is able to capture the emotion in every moment. She is so talented and has the most amazing style. There was never a dull moment with her. Especially all those times she laughed as my dog barked at her camera. We both loved working with Makayla. When I saw our photos for the first time, I cried because they had perfectly captured the emotion in every moment. I can't thank her enough. If you're looking for a fun loving and extremely talented photographer, Makayla is the one for you. Oh, and she LOVES dogs.

Wedding Premiere

We'll set up a movie-theater like experience in the comfort of your own home, on the biggest screen you have. I'll provide the beverage for toasting, you provide the snacks and the friends and family. We laugh, cry, and truly experience just how amazing of a couple you are and just how awesome your art turned out.

(This is ALWAYS the favorite part!)

Then afterwards, we'll look through some products and choose how you'd best like to represent your event. Does an album seem fitting? Or maybe a glass folio box? What feels right to you?

Check out the products below.
