the alexandra lee photography wedding process

A tiny peak into how the wedding photography experience and process works at Alexandra Lee Photography.

After you send in your inquiry, we get to meet each other! Yay! At the consultation we will get to know one another, talk about your story and your vision, drink some coffee (on me!), and go over pricing and packaging. These also have the option to be over Skype/Facetime if needed.

Consultation

engagement session

Woo hoo! We get to work together for your wedding day! I am so excited! Once we have you booked, your retainer fee paid and contract signed, it will be time to schedule your e-session. This is a time where we get to take pictures of you two together for this short time as an engaged couple. Engagement sessions are great because we get to know each other more and get practice working with each other which alleviates stress on the wedding day. (Bonus!)

final chat

Your wedding day is now 8 weeks away! This is such an exciting and busy time. 8 weeks prior to your wedding we will go over all the last minute little details. Things we will discuss will be final timelines, formal portrait lists, and more. This will also be your chance to ask any questions you may have for me and about your wedding day. 

here comes the bride

IT'S YOUR WEDDING DAY!!
YAY! I will work diligently to make sure your day goes smoothly, stress free, and as planned! I will be on the sidelines capturing moments, crying during your vows, crying during your first dance, crying during your - Ok... I'll be crying a lot. I'll also be having tons of fun too!  It's my job to  make sure every moment is captured to have for a life time.

your album design

Shortly after you receive your gallery, if your package included an album, you will receive a mock up album spread I designed for you. Here you will be able to review your album and make changes as you wish. We can work together to make sure it features everything you want it to and comes out beautifully. Once the album is finished, it will be delivered straight to your door in 4-6 weeks!

We are so over the moon that we chose Alexandra Lee Photography as our wedding photographer! Working with Alex was amazing, easy, and just all around wonderful. Alex is a great photographer who makes anyone, including my somewhat tough exterior fiancé, loosen up, smile and have fun! Every single picture was perfect.

Alex is a phenomenal photographer to work with. She always has great advice on what to wear and helps guide you through poses during pictures. My favorite part about working with Alex is when she suddenly has a vision for a picture and works to make it happen.

She turned a cold, windy Chicago afternoon into an enjoyable and lasting memory. Not only did the photos turn out beautiful, but our experience with her was one of a kind. Alex made us both feel comfortable and confident through the frigid cold and brought out our genuine smiles. Alex truly keeps the client in mind during the shoots. We felt the shoot was personal and tailored to our personalities!

She made both Andrew and I very comfortable. Andrew was relaxed and calm during the process and I think that had a lot to do with Alex. We had such a hard time choosing photos for our save the date cards and our future guest book, all of that was because of Alex and her work. We loved working with her and we are excited for our wedding day.
