Answers To Your Questions
WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT, MINIMONY AND MICROWEDDING?
The wedding industry has changed over the last year. Some couples are uncertain about booking big wedding events at venues and instead, choosing to have smaller celebrations. According to The Knot, an Elopement | Minimony is usually up to 10 guests and a Microwedding: up to 50 guests.
This means different things to different people; You could do a spontaneous ceremony where it is just the two of you and maybe Fido; You could do something sweet and small with just your immediate family at someone's home or your favorite restaurant . Or, you could split your celebration into multiple days where you have your ceremony on one day and a small reception on the other. The choice is yours!
OUR EMAIL EXCHANGE
Congratulations-you're getting married! Once I receive your email inquiry, I'll get in touch to learn all about your wedding. Call me old-fashioned, but I will call you over the phone! Hearing each others voices makes a world of difference. We'll chat about your vision and how I can help. Also, please note that although you should have the wedding that you absolutely deserve, my passion lies with photographing smaller, intimate weddings.
Linda Jae Photography is based out of Jacksonville, FL in the Avondale/Riverside area. If you are local-let's meet in person. If not, I'd be happy to set up a video/phone call appointment. This gives us a chance to get a feel for our personalities-something that just cannot be done through emails. We'll go over all the details of your special day.
If you feel that we are a great match, it is time to book! I will send out a contract to you with everything we discussed during our initial consultation, along with some notes about our meeting. You'll sign it and send it back to me, along with a 50% retainer and your date is officially booked!
PLANNING YOUR TIMELINE
Whether you are doing a last minute Elopement or planning an intimate wedding, I will guide you with my expertise in planning your timeline. We'll put our heads together and come up with ideas to make you day run as smoothly as possible. Couples who would like a mini engagement session (pets included) before the wedding date, are free to do so!
THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
Just before your wedding date, I'll mail out an info packet for you to fill out regarding your timeline, contact info and formal family picture requests, if needed. You'll also send me some picture ideas from your Pinterest board. We'll meet one more time before your big day to go over every detail , assuring that you'll have the best wedding photography experience. At this time, your final balance will be due.
Here's to the new married couple! I will be there every step of the way, guiding you and your loved ones and capturing all the emotion and details beautifully-with style and grace. Enjoy every moment because it goes by so quickly!
SNEAK PEEKS & YOUR BLOG STORY
Just a couple of days after your wedding, you'll get a dozen or so sneak peeks because I know the suspense is real and everyone wants to see on Instagram! Also-look for highlights from your wedding to be featured on my blog.
2 to 3 weeks after your wedding, you'll receive your full online wedding gallery of stunning images, perfectly edited and retouched. Time to download (with printing rights) and think about any other heirlooms.
PRINTS, ALBUMS & UNIQUE KEEPSAKES
We'll get the process started with designing your album and other goodies (if ordered) as soon as a month after your wedding-while everything is still fresh. You can expect to receive these items within 3 months of your wedding date.
"Linda makes a stressful part of the wedding fun.
“By the end of your time with Linda you will feel like you’ve known her for years, which is so important when someone is involved in such an intimate experience in your life.”
Carla and John
"Linda has a warm personality and is easy to work with. I knew we were going to hire her after our initial meeting.
Linda is professional and gives great attention to detail. She captured moments of true happiness. She even caught my husband with a natural smile several times (which is a HUGE feat).
