"My main goal as your wedding photographer is to make your final images as well as your entire experience of working with me be something you will look back on with a smile for years to come!"
— Jeanette Merstrand Photography
I started photography because I absolutely love interacting with people, hearing their incredible stories and helping preserve those stories through photography! My favorite kinds of stories are love stories, so couple's and wedding photography holds a very special place in my heart!
As your wedding photographer I am dedicated to capturing your love for each other in a way that will preserve the way you feel for each other for generations to come! I am committed to capture both the details as well as the big moments.
I strive to put my clients first, and my main goal is to create beautiful images and to make your images and your wedding experience something you’ll look back on with a smile for years to come!
I believe that the best pictures come out of photographer-client relationships that feel authentic and comfortable instead of stiff, awkward, and impersonal. This is why I find it so important that we get to know each other even before our session!
If you are looking to book me as your wedding photographer we will first get in touch online, and after getting to know each other online, we will determine if our expectations align and if we would be a good match!
After getting in touch, I will send you a little information about myself as well as a short questionaire to help me get to know you and your fiance and understand your expectations a bit better!
This is the step in the process in which we figure out if we are a perfect match!
Let's be friends!
We're a match! Yay! After meeting online, if we determine that we are a good match, then we will proceed to book your preferred session date! I will send you an electronic contract for both of us to sign as well as an invoice for you to pay your deposit, which ensures that your date remains reserved!
Once this has been done, Jeanette Merstrand Photography is officially booked as your wedding photographer!
Save the Date!
It's time to let the fun begin! I include a complimentary engagement photo shoot in my wedding pricing because I find it so important to work with each other at least once before the wedding to get to know each other and to get comfortable with each other. After your booking, we will schedule an engagement session!
Don't worry about feeling awkward or inexperienced, I will help you through the entire process, and all you have to do is focus on having fun and enjoying yourself, laughing a lot, and I will do the rest!
It might take about 20 minutes to really start feeling comfortable in front of the camera, but after that you will be a pro! Even my most shy and nervous clients have warmed up to the camera quickly and walked away at the end of their session feeling confident!
After your engagement shoot and once we’re a few months away from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding, and at this point we will discuss your wedding timeline!
I will send you a copy of a suggested timeline, and we will then go through it together making any adjustments necessary. Having a timeline is such a helpful way to keep your wedding day stress free!
If you don't have a timeline yet, don't worry, I can help you create the perfect timeline to preserve both the natural flow of the day while still making sure we capture your dream wedding portraits and pictures!
Together we will plan your day to make it both your ideal day free from stress, and to make it photographer-friendly so that you will have images of your own that are magazine worthy!
Your big day is finally here! It's time to relax and enjoy the magic of the day. Although I offer partial coverage, because I believe in the power of capturing the entire story, I prefer and always suggest a full-day coverage!
I work hard to capture the details of the day, the momentous moments, the fun ones, and some of the more intimate and personal ones as well.
My favorite part of the day is capturing the portraits of the newlywed couple! I find that this special time between the couple is so love-filled and beautiful!
After your wedding I will share some of your images in a blog post within a week of the wedding- usually on #weddingwednesday! I like to share my wedding blog post while the excitement from the day is still fresh!
The day after our photo-shoot, I will post a few of my favorite images from our session together as a sneak-peek to my Facebook page for you and your family and friends to see and within a week your blog post will go up on my page!
Within a month you will receive an online link per e-mail to the rest of your gallery consisting of carefully selected and edited images for a high resolution download.
I'd suggest sitting down and really enjoying looking through your pictures when you receive them, picking some favourites and having them printed. Pictures serve their greatest purpose when being viewed! If you need suggestions, I'd be happy to help you choose your images for printing or for creating a photobook!
Congratulations! You are now an official JM Bride!
