You are in for an incredible adventure and Id be </p><p>absolutely thrilled to be a part of it. </p><p>As a recent bride myself, I know how much thought and energy goes into planning </p><p>every detail of a wedding. You put blood, sweat, and tears (lots of tears, lets be </p><p>honest) into crafting and planning your perfect day. So its my goal to fully docu-</p><p>ment all of those details, the heart behind them, and the celebration surrounding </p><p>it all. Moreover, your love story deserves to be beautifully captured on camera </p><p>by someone dedicated to getting to know you and the moments that make your </p><p>relationship truly special. Thats why choosing the right photographer is one of the </p><p>most important investments youll make for your day, and Im here to help make </p><p>that decision a bit easier. </p><p>So please take a look through this guide to get a better feel for my work, my style </p><p>and workflow, and get to know a little about who I am as an artist. Im honored </p><p>youve reached out to me and I cant wait to hear more about you and your big day!</p></li><li><p>4 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 5 </p></li><li><p>6 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 7 </p></li><li><p>8 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 9 </p><p>G E T T O K N O W M E</p><p>Ive been an artist my entire life. From the moment I could pick up a pencil, the </p><p>creative and eccentric world inside my head just spilled out onto paper, either </p><p>through storytelling, drawing, or painting. My proclivity for artistic expression bled </p><p>into other mediums and I soon fell in love with photography at around 13-years-</p><p>old (thanks Dad for letting me play with the family camera!). I began freelancing </p><p>professionally at age 16 when I transformed my early explorations of self-portrai-</p><p>ture into a booming photography business. Over the last handful of years, I mostly </p><p>worked within the music scene, photographing metalcore bands and document-</p><p>ing grungy tattooed dudes on tour. Recently, these guys started settling down and </p><p>getting married, and it only seemed natural for the girl who used to photograph </p><p>their sweaty stage performances to now capture their weddings. Its something I </p><p>never would have imagined doing before, but this type of photography has com-</p><p>pletely stolen my heart. I love getting to work with such fun and extraordinary </p><p>couples as we create beautiful, unforgettable art together.</p><p>As someone with a few quirks myself, Im all about creating photos that reflect my </p><p>couples distinct personalities and interests, and capture the uniqueness of their </p><p>love. I like working with people who appreciate art, value photography, and arent </p><p>afraid to brainstorm on some crazy ideas.</p><p>In addition to being a photographer, I am also a graphic designer, lifestyle blogger, </p><p>Jesus lover, connoisseur of zombie movies, collector of curiosities, antique store / </p><p>flea market vulture, In-N-Out Burger addict, and newly married to my charmingly </p><p>dorky Star-Wars-loving-drum-playing high school sweetheart.</p></li><li><p>10 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p><p>P R I C I N G P A C K A G E S</p><p>Since each couple is unique, getting to know you is the best way for me to cater a </p><p>photo package to your needs. The following figures should help give you a general </p><p>idea of what my couples typically invest. But please feel free to reach out to me, </p><p>and we can create a package that best fits you and your wedding.</p><p>WEDDING &amp; ENGAGEMENT PACKAGE $3,000 </p><p>+ 2 hour engagement session in Southern California </p><p>+ Up to 8 hours of wedding day coverage </p><p>+ 350-600 final edited images </p><p>+ Turnaround: approx. 6-7 weeks</p><p>JUST THE WEDDING $2,600 </p><p>+ 2 photographers </p><p>+ Up to 8 hours of wedding day coverage </p><p>+ 350-600 final edited images </p><p>+ Turnaround: approx. 6-7 weeks</p><p>JUST THE ENGAGEMENT $500 </p><p>+ 2 hour engagement session in Southern California </p><p>+ 35-50 final edited images </p><p>+ Digital download of your images in high resolution </p><p>+ Turnaround: approx. 4-5 weeks</p><p>EXTRAS </p><p>Additional hours // $200 </p><p>Post-wedding / Boudoir / Trash the Dress Shoot // $300</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 1 1 </p></li><li><p>1 2 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 1 3 </p></li><li><p>1 4 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p><p>E N G A G E M E N T S E S S I O N S</p><p>I absolutely LOVE engagement sessions. Theyre one of my favorite parts about </p><p>photographing weddings. Sessions are always so much fun and the final photos </p><p>are such a stunning and unique reflection of your love story. Its also a perfect </p><p>opportunity for us to get to know each other better and for you both to get com-</p><p>fortable in front of my camera before the wedding day. I truly believe engagement </p><p>sessions make better wedding photos. They act as a practice round Ill learn </p><p>more about the ways you naturally interact in your relationship, and youll learn </p><p>how to pose and flirt organically on camera. Then on the big day, youll be pros!</p><p>A typical engagement session lasts about 2 hours, and we meet up at a location of </p><p>your choosing (or I can offer recommendations) a few hours before sunset. We call </p><p>this golden hour and the lighting is nothing short of magical. Most often I shoot </p><p>outdoors in fields or wooded areas, but if theres a particular place or style thats </p><p>special to your relationship, let me know! Sessions are super casual and relaxed, </p><p>and Ill direct you the whole way through and make sure youre 100% comfortable </p><p>and looking your absolute best!</p><p>TIPS</p><p>+ Engagement photos are perfect for save-the-dates and wedding websites.</p><p>+ Wear what youre comfortable in! I recommend bringing a few changes of </p><p>clothes to get a variety of looks.</p><p>+ Ill work with you to find a perfect location that reflects your personal style or </p><p>matches the theme of your wedding.</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 1 5 </p></li><li><p>1 6 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 1 7 </p></li><li><p>1 8 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 1 9 </p></li><li><p>20 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p><p>W H A T T O E X P E C T F O R T H E B I G D A Y</p><p>CONSULTATION</p><p>If you like what you see, lets set up a meeting! Getting together for coffee or </p><p>cocktails with my couples is an important part of the whole wedding photography </p><p>process. I want to get to know you and your story, and talk about all the details you </p><p>have planned for your special day and most importantly ensure were a good </p><p>fit for each other. * If meeting in person isnt possible due to location, we can set </p><p>up a Skype date or phone call.</p><p>CONTRACT &amp; BOOKING</p><p>Ready to move forward? After our meeting, Ill send over my contract which goes </p><p>over the rest of the nitty gritty details of my services and we can discuss any linger-</p><p>ing questions via email. You can then book me for your wedding date with a $600 </p><p>reservation deposit.</p><p>TIMELINE SCHEDULING</p><p>Approximately a month out from the wedding day, Ill get back in contact with you </p><p>to talk about the wedding timeline. Its important for me to be included in your </p><p>plans to ensure we have the necessary time for photographs and make sure your </p><p>day goes as smoothly as possible. The more time I have, the more photos youll </p><p>get and the more creative I can be with them. Im more than happy to help with </p><p>suggestions as you plan your timeline.</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 2 1 </p></li><li><p>22 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 2 3 </p><p>W H A T T O E X P E C T ( C O N T I N U E D )</p><p>WEDDING DAY</p><p>A typical wedding day starts with my second shooter and I arriving about an hour </p><p>early to scope out the location, get acquainted with you and your bridal party, and </p><p>photograph some fun images of everyone getting ready. When youre all dressed, </p><p>well photograph the bride with her bridesmaids and the groom with his guys. </p><p>During the ceremony, we capture all the magic and emotions, making sure to get </p><p>those first looks and tear-filled eyes. Right after the ceremony, the family gath-</p><p>ers for some quick group photos while the rest of the guests make their way to </p><p>cocktail hour. Ill then steal the happy couple away for creative portraits (about 45 </p><p>min to an hour). This is your moment to breathe and spend a little alone time in </p><p>your first moments as husband and wife. The remaining hours are party time and </p><p>well photograph all the exciting activities during your reception (bride and groom </p><p>entry, dances, cake cutting, etc). Well also spend a lot of attention documenting </p><p>special details of the day like food, decorations, candids of your guests, and any-</p><p>thing and everything to fully capture and preserve the essence of your big day.</p><p>PHOTO DELIVERY</p><p>After your wedding, Ill spend the next few weeks sorting through your photos, </p><p>picking the best ones, editing and curating them in a way that tells the full story </p><p>of your incredible day from beginning to end. Within 6-7 weeks, youll get a digital </p><p>download of all the edited images in high resolution format. You are free to share </p><p>the photos with friends and family, make your own prints, and put together your </p><p>own photobooks as you like. I know most of my brides are DIYers, so I dont try </p><p>to upsell you on extra add ons or restrict access to your own wedding photos. If </p><p>youre interested in additional products, Id be more than happy to discuss that </p><p>with you after the wedding.</p></li><li><p>24 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 2 5 </p></li><li><p>26 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p><p>F R E Q U E N T L Y A S K E D Q U E S T I O N S</p><p>DO YOU TRAVEL?</p><p>Yes! I would absolutely love to discuss travel details for a custom quote. </p><p>CAN WE BOOK YOU FOR ONLY A FEW HOURS TO SAVE MONEY?</p><p>Storytelling is such a huge part of what I do. Years from now, youll want to look </p><p>back and be able to relive every detail you spent so much time and effort planning, </p><p>and the unexpected moments that made the day truly special. Im not willing to </p><p>miss a second of that, and thats why I only offer full day wedding coverage.</p><p>WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?</p><p>My second shooter and I both work with professional grade Canon digital cam-</p><p>eras, lenses, and flashes.</p><p>HOW MUCH DO YOU EDIT THE PHOTOS?</p><p>Coming from an editorial photography background, I actually quite like Photoshop </p><p>and dont think its evil as some might have you believe. I mostly color correct so </p><p>the tones match the vibe of your wedding. But if theres a blemish that decided to </p><p>make its debute on your big day or a body part got caught at the wrong angle, Ill </p><p>do the necessary adjustments to ensure everyone looks their absolute best.</p><p>DO YOU PROVIDE ALBUMS?</p><p>Albums arent included in the main package. Many of my brides are DIYers and/or </p><p>frugal (I was that bride too!), so most have preferred to make their own albums. </p><p>Im 100% onboard with this as thats what I did with my own wedding, and enjoyed </p><p>the freedom it gave me. If youd like to have an album made by me, Id be more </p><p>than happy to discuss that after your photos have been delivered.</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 2 7 </p></li><li><p>28 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 2 9 </p></li><li><p>30 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 3 1 </p></li><li><p>32 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 33 </p></li><li><p>34 | C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A P H O T O G R A P H Y</p></li><li><p>20 15 W E D D I N G G U I D E | 35 </p><p>G E T I N T O U C H</p><p>If youre interested in having me shoot your engagement photos, or you think my </p><p>photographic style and artistic vision would be a good fit for your wedding, Id love </p><p>to chat with you!</p><p>CONTACT CORINNE</p><p>WEB www.corinnealexandra.com</p><p>EMAIL corinne@stuckwithpins.com</p><p>INSTA instagram.com/corinnealexandraphoto</p></li><li><p>C O R I N N E A L E X A N D R A</p></li></ul>
