LUME PHOTOGRAPHY PRICE GUIDE

LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

Hi, I’m Andrea! I’ve been a professional wedding photographer for 8 years. I’m a dreamer, an adventurer, and a rebel. I believe in magic and true love. I love to travel and to seek out and explore wild, hidden places in nature. I prefer hiking shoes over high heels, spontaneously planning a trip rather than using a travel service or cruise, and letting the universe show me the way.

I married my best friend, Scott, in 2013 and we eloped in Arizona. Having gone through my own wedding planning, I learned a lot about what’s truly important on a wedding day- no matter what form it takes. Your wedding day should be a celebration of your commitment to each other, not a huge staged production put on for your guests. I love connecting with couples who really care about their wedding and are intentional about making it as much about them, as a couple, as possible.

Fun facts about me: My fur-family includes two dogs (Walter, a Whippet and Willow, a Brittany Spaniel) two Maine Coons (Yeti and Faust, both boys, and yes- they’re huge) and my horse, Rafter (a big, brown silly guy who looks like he could be in a medieval movie). I have two kids- Natalie and Evan- who are also big-time adventurers!

I'm Not Your Average Wedding Photographer

I won’t just show up on your wedding day with a pre-written shot list to work off of. I’m passionate about getting to know you both and your story and documenting your whole wedding day as it really is. I want to be involved in your planning and be a guide so that you get the most value out of your experience with me as possible! I’ll help you plan out your timeline for the most seamless day possible, and to make sure your photos turn out incredible.

I’ll give you advice on how to prepare for your photos, and I’ll be there when the time comes to show you what you need to do with your body to look the best in your photos. I can also recommend other amazing wedding vendors (pretty much anywhere in the world), clothing and accessory choices for your day-of, décor and lighting for the most romantic, warm, soft photos, and more!

I’ll take the time to get to know you both, and your story, so that I can create photographs for you that are authentic and personal. Your wedding day is important, and I’ll be there to document it in meaningful images that will increase in value as the years go on. 

I won’t stage traditional posed portraits of the two of you. I stand against un-natural, awkward, and typical posed portraits. Your wedding is about committing yourselves to each other for all time- it’s a day to celebrate your connection at one of its strongest moments, so you can look back on it, forever. I promise to do my absolute best to honor that connection and capture real, raw, emotional and memorable portraits that will make your heart skip a beat!

Why I love Intentional Weddings and Elopements

it's all about you

Intentional weddings are awesome because the couple isn’t just doing what’s expected of them by others or by tradition. The same can be said about planning an elopement. You are intentionally choosing to make this day about you- the day that you make an incredible commitment to one another! You get to design your wedding day around what is truly important to you, not what is “expected” of you. I’ve found that the energy of a wedding day that’s intentional is completely different than a big traditional wedding where no real thought or intention has been put into it- and this translates into better photos. The day itself will be more meaningful. You will feel more emotionally connected to your images and memories.

What does your dream wedding day look like to you?

Why would I want full day coverage of my wedding or elopement?

Your wedding day is just that- an entire day! It’s going to be one of the most important days of your life, and it will be your anniversary, every year, from that day on! Lots of events will happen that day, and a whole story will be told. Your wedding day matters, and it deserves more than just a few hours of photos. You shouldn’t make the mistake of settling or skimping out on your wedding photography. When married couples were asked what things they most regret about their wedding, one of the top answers was not investing enough in their photography. It’s literally the most important thing you’ll have to remember your day by!

Couples planning an elopement typically are under the impression that they only need a few hours of photography. This is a myth that needs to be dispelled! Your wedding day- whether it’s a regular wedding with lots of guests, or an intimate elopement with just the two of you- is important! The story of your wedding day deserves to be told!

Try this: think of a movie like…hmmm…The Lord of the Rings. (Hopefully you’ve seen it!) Sure, it’s 3 movies, really, but let’s pretend it was just one. Can you imagine if the entire first movie was cut out, so you start watching and have no idea about the beginning of the story with Frodo and Bilbo and The Shire? You wouldn’t have a lot of context, right? And then imaging Frodo throws the ring into Mount Doom and the movie ends right there. You would have no idea what happens to all the characters, and you would have no sense of closure! See what I’m getting at here? Hopefully something is clicking… :)

Anyway, my point is that your wedding day is incredibly important. The more time goes on and years you spend together, the more important it will be. Your wedding matters. It’s valuable and the whole day deserves to be documented in photographs.
