Moments to memories
When you're having your love story documented, you want to make sure you're capturing it properly. Working with a photographer that you love, you'll feel so much more at ease in front of the camera. I aim to make that happen by being a calming yet fun third wheel, also with terrible dad jokes. Nothing gets the laughter going like a bad joke. My work is a mixture of poses, and actions, to make sure we get the beauty and romance of your love, while at the same time getting the giggles and candid moments.
Inquire & sign the contract
Spend some time looking at my work, falling in love with it, and then reaching out to see if your date is available. We chat, and become best friends. You then sign the contract and send the 40% non-refundable retainer, and become part of the Hilary Elizabeth family! Now we can cheers to that.
time for a date!
We get together and I third wheel your date. We'll have planned out your engagement session ahead of time - whether it's grabbing a drink/coffee at the local bar or cafe, running through fields, or strolling through a car park - we'll be having fun, and you'll be professional models by the end.
Preparing your timeline & the big day
All is said and done, a couple days later you get some sneak peaks to squeal over together. And then a short 6-8 weeks the full gallery comes through! You'll curl up with some wine and snacks, hook your computer up to your tv so that they're nice and big, and you'll be able to look through the memories from one of the best days of your life.
I always say you need to print your memories, otherwise they just sit there on your computer hard drive. You want to hang them on your walls, put them in a book to flip through with your friends, children, even grandchildren! So we design your album, and order some prints, and you'll have tangible memories for years to come.

how much can we expect to invest in photography?
This answer varies per wedding day, as each day is different and tells a different story. A full wedding day (8 hours or more) typically will receive about 800+ photos.
How many images can we expect to receive?
It typically takes between 6-8 weeks to receive your full gallery. But don’t worry, I will always send sneak peeks to you in the days following your wedding. During busy season, you're looking at a bit of a longer wait, but I try to get them to you as fast as possible, as I know you're excited to get them, and I'm excited to send them over to you!
