...and now it's time to find the perfect photographer to capture everything that makes you as individuals and as a couple unique. Someone that sees the world like you do, and effortlessly captures everything you care about – from the smallest nuanced details to the grand, once-in-a-lifetime moments.
Even if you don't need engagement photos for any practical reason – like save-the-dates or to display at your wedding, we believe it's super-important practice to have with your wedding photographer (just like you'd have with your hair and makeup professionals).
We make it super easy to "say yes" to engagement photos. We know you're probably not a professional model, and maybe even uncomfortable in front of the camera. That's reason enough to spend a couple hours walking around a gorgeous, natural setting (we know lots of 'em!) – getting to know your photographer and finding out what poses are most flattering and fun. Plus, we are highly directive during the shoot, telling you exactly what we want you to do every step of the way.
After the session, you'll realize it was actually a lot of fun – and when you see the results, you'll be blown away at how good you both look, giving you tons of confidence going into the wedding day about what we can all achieve together!
Every step of the process – from the first inquiry into your date to the delivery of your final wedding files and album – will be friction and stress-free. We have the kinds of personalities that embrace challenges, shrug off stress, exude genuine kindness and respect, believe in the power of love and most of all, know how to capture any wedding, anywhere, with anyone – in the most creative, timeless and powerful way.
If you like photos that are directed (but not posey), vibrant and full of depth, intimate and expressive, contemporary (yet timeless) – then you've come to the right place. We have established a consistent, mature style in both the capturing and editing process. This means we're confident showing you full past weddings, proving we can capture magazine-worthy pictures for any bride-to-be, no matter what.
We like to have fun with our clients; happy people are at ease in front of the camera – and our good-natured attitudes are reflected in the subjects of our photos. It just shows that when you love doing something, the results will speak for themselves. We hope to do this for you.
We know that the modern bride wants to have the high-resolution, edited originals from her wedding. We include them, along with unlimited usage rights, with every package.
There is no better way to physically preserve your favorite wedding photographs than in a custom-designed keepsake album. We offer three distinct lines, one of which we hope will be a perfect fit for you.
Full disclosure up front, friends: wedding coverage by Chris (owner) starts at $3,500 and goes up from there; if our packages don't fit your needs, just let us know what your budget is so we can find a way to help you – whether it's a GoodEye Associate or referral.
Elopements and very small weddings are less expensive, but are subject to availability – usually Monday thru Thursday. Lots of variables come into play (hours of coverage, additional photographers, engagements, time of year); our goal is to listen to your wedding vision and create custom options focused on what you want most.
Yes, a GoodEye wedding is an expensive, luxury service; this is the premium price you pay for truly professional services – the kind you pay for and forget about, because you know they're highly competent and will do an awesome job without your hand-holding. You're investing in peace of mind.
Because we actually, genuinely enjoy photographing the most important day in your life, we have zero interest in shooting 100+ weddings every year. That's not good for us, and it's not good for you. We intentionally limit our availability to roughly 25 to 3o weddings per year, and book up around February or March. After that 25th wedding is booked, we get very picky about taking on any additional weddings, and the price is likely to go up as well.
Bottom line: just tell us as much as you can about your big day, and if Chris (the owner) or another GoodEye Associate is not the best fit for you, we'll do our best to hook you up with some appropriate referrals with no strings attached.
Hundreds of brides from years past certainly have no regrets, we'd love to be your next savvy wedding investment.
We'd love to make some amazing images with you.
