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.

FILM FAQS

Can I choose music for my film?


Music for films is chosen from an array of royalty-free music we have on hand that gives you the ability to share your film to social media, the internet in general, etc. If you have a specific song you'd like, you'll have to pay the royalty fee to use it - which can vary from $60 to over $5k. Most of your film will have audio from vows and speeches, so the music really just plays a background role.




We're only booking a film collection through you, not photography - how do you work with our photographer?


Your photographer takes the lead for the entire day, and we do our job of documenting your wedding as-is while working alongside them. Once we know who they are, we'll reach out and introduce ourselves and share what our goals are, to make sure we can work together as a team.




When will I receive my finished, edited wedding videos?


Editing is the most time-consuming part of the filmmaking process - for each minute of film, there's about 3 hours of editing varying from color adjusting to audio clarity to the video clips themselves. A one-minute social media reel is delivered one week after your event, and full delivery of all of your final films is 4 months after your event.




Have you shot at my venue before?


Having worked in wedding media for half a decade, I've photographed/filmed nearly every style of venue possible. If I haven't been at your particular venue before, chances are I've been in one extremely similar and have confidence about working there. If you'd like to do a walkthrough together to go over details and concerns, I'd be happy to do so - but I'm more than comfortable seeing it for the first time on your wedding day.




Can you describe your editing process?


I'm a firm believer in taking as many steps as possible to preserve an accurate memory of your wedding day - so your film is edited in a chronological fashion, going through your day as time actually played out. This will help with better memory recall over time and lend a different insight to your wedding than a cinematic style film that jumps from different portions of the day throughout the film. I take the key moments of your day and narrow them down into different edits based on the collection you choose.




Do I get any input into the final product?


If there's anything in particular you're looking for or hoping for, we'll have that conversation before your event to make sure I can prioritize that. Once the film is finalized and edited, we'll have your reveal party for the viewing of the film - at which point, if there are minor adjustments you'd like made, we'll be able to talk those details over. Adjustments are free for the first 2 hours of additional edits, and billed hourly afterwards. I've yet to have a couple ask for adjustments afterwards, so you can rest knowing your film will be of your dreams.

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?

FAQ

How much do products cost?


There's a lot of varying factors like paper types, sizes, etc. We can talk more of those details over skype and during booking!




Do you have a minimum order?


Nope! If you feel that none of these items accurately represent your event, there's no need to purchase anything (but that's typically not the case :) )




What if there's something I want not on this list?


Just say the word, and I'll get it for you. My professional labs have a plethora of things you probably didn't even know you could print on, so we'll find your dream art for you.




I live far away from you: how do we have a Wedding Premiere?


If you live within 250 miles of Saint Paul MN, we'll have your premiere as normal. If you live more than 250 miles, we'll have a premiere via Skype and screenshare. It works out, no worries.
