GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHER

I believe that photographs are such an essential part of your wedding day. These images are going to be remembered and cherished for years to come, which is why it is so important to have a photographer who is passionate about photography and you. I'm not only here to take beautiful portraits of you; I'm here to fix your flyaways, pump you up before you walk down the aisle, and most importantly become friends for life. Let's get this party started!


LOVE, LAUREN

"you cannot go wrong with this amazing person"

kind words

"Lauren photographed our wedding in August of 2019 and I cannot express how professional, detailed, and passionate she was at shooting our wedding! She really cares about the craft, but more than that, she really cares about the people she’s working with. You cannot go wrong with this amazing person. Being able to look through all the pictures Lauren took with my wife now that the wedding is long gone is the sweetest present we have received and I cannot thank her enough"

"she quickly became more than just our photographer, but a friend we cherish" 

kind words

"Lauren Kovacik is amazing at what she does. She has the most creative and artistic eye to capture the beauty of couples being in love. We absolutely loved having her capture our engagement pictures and wedding day. She is so sweet and she makes you feel so comfortable. She quickly became more than just our photographer, but a friend we cherish. We love her and her work. We cannot recommend her enough!

WHAT TO EXPECT –

Let's Connect

After photographing weddings over the past few years, I have learned a few tips and tricks here and there to help plan the best timeline for my couples. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. I want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how y’all got engaged.
We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with us and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

Wedding Advice

I'm here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, vendor referrals, or you just need a friend to talk to!

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. I'm happy to share everything I've learned along the way! 

Engagement Session

I am a big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few weeks before the wedding. There isn’t a right time to take your photos. I will normally plan sessions based on a particular look or location a couple has in mind, or based on our schedules. 

Wedding Day Prep

I check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day. 

While I normally don't send a questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions during the planning process! I love being apart of the planning process and I always have time to answer questions!

The Big Day

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know I am so excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be so awesome and so beautiful!!

Photo Delivery

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

I hope the relationship doesn't end after I deliver your photographs. I want to hear about the adventures of married life.

Engagement Sessions

I offer complimentary engagement sessions with every collection and they are the perfect opportunity for us to hang out and get to know each other in a more relaxed setting. You also get to learn my shooting style while we're at it. Some people can be a little camera shy at first, so engagement sessions are a great way to practice so you don’t feel awkward in front of the camera on your wedding day!

Plus, you get some super cute pictures of the two of you, a bonus! Timelines can get pretty tight on wedding days and I’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions with me ahead of time. 

Albums

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an heirloom album. These albums are high quality, professionally designed and printed, and come in a variety of linen and leather covers. These albums are modern, lay flat, and you’ll want to show them off to your friends and family. Albums are the perfect way to get your wedding pictures off of your computer and phone screen and into your hands. 

All albums must be prepaid before the design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision before print. Albums can be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day!

We love your work and we’re ready to book! What’s the next step?

Fantastic! To reserve your wedding date, I'll need a completed contract and a 25% non-refundable deposit. If you don’t have a contract yet, just let me know and I'll send one over! The remaining balance will be due 1 week before the wedding.

how many images are included?

You can expect to receive 50-75 final hand-edited images per hour of your coverage. After your wedding I go through every single photo and remove images that you don’t want or need like people blinking, or blurry images, and I will edit and deliver the rest in an online gallery. You will have plenty to choose from I promise, I take tons of photos during your wedding, and I always make sure you get the most. If it was my wedding I would want as many images as I could have.You can print directly from the online gallery or print them yourself, I recommend Bay Photo Labs for the best quality.

when will I 
receive my photos?

You'll receive a sneak peek of a few photos within 24 hours of your day (I know you're anxious to 'gram!). for engagements, photos are delivered within the a week. Weddings are delivered within 3-4 weeks. 

why include a 2nd photog?

I have photographed many weddings solo, but on occasion I will recommend a second photographer to assist me. For larger weddings or when the bride and groom are getting ready separately and the timelines don’t allow me to be with them both, second photographers are great to add another perspective to your day and more pictures. We can talk more if you are interested in hiring a second photographer to your day.

do you give us the raw photos?

I don’t give out any unedited or raw image files. The editing process is part of what makes my photos special, just like me setting up your poses. Without the editing, your photos are unfinished.

do we need an engagement session?

Scheduling an engagement session is completely up to you! I offer complimentary engagement sessions with every collection and they are the perfect opportunity for us to hang out and get to know each other in a more relaxed setting. You also get to learn my shooting style while we're at it. Some people can be a little camera shy at first, so engagement sessions are a great way to practice so you don’t feel awkward in front of the camera on your wedding day!

Thank you so much for considering me to be a part of your wedding day! If you’re interested in working with me, the next step is to set up a time to chat! You can reach me directly at laurenkovacikphotography@gmail.com
