Order of Events

Wedding preparations begin...
  • Initial Consultation

    The initial consultation is when we will discuss the available plans and options for your wedding day.

  • Reserve Your Wedding Day

    After your initial consultation we will have you sign an online contract and provide a 30% retainer to lock in your wedding day. Immediately after that, you can check getting an awesome wedding photographer off your wedding to-do list… 🙂

  • Engagement Session

    After receiving your deposit we will get you scheduled for your 1-2 hour engagement session. We recommend scheduling your engagement session at least 6-12 months ahead of your actual wedding date.

  • Wedding Day Scheduling

    During your wedding planning you can contact us at ANY time to ask us about your wedding day. Just email me directly: sk@shawnkenessey.com and I will do my best to help! About 1-3 months before your wedding when things are more settled we will have a phone call to officially plan things like the portrait locations you would like to visit for wedding party shots and the reception schedule. We will also take note of any special photography requests you have and put that on our todo list for your wedding day.

  • Final Payment

    Leading up to your wedding day we require payment for our photography services to be made in full before your wedding day. Full payment can be made at anytime after signing our wedding contract but we allow full payment to be deferred until 2 weeks before your wedding date.

  • Optional Pre-Wedding Experiences

    In addition to the engagement session that is included with every wedding package, we also offer in studio or on location wedding photography experiences. These experiences are catered and drinks are provided as we meticulously produce some wow level shots of you and your significant other. For these sessions it is required that the Bride and Groom come in ballroom ready outfits of their choosing.

  • The Wedding Day!

    Finally, your wedding day has arrived. It is a day of celebrating and sharing your newfound love and happiness with the people you care about in the world. And we will be there documenting it every step of the way! We offer our congratulations and our sincere best wishes for you and your new family.

  • Proofing Your Photos

    Within 1-2 months after your wedding day we will provide links at which you can proof the photos we selected for editing in addition to a further list of all the photos from your wedding.

  • Delivery Of Your Photos

    Within 3-4 months your final prints, albums, and other deliverables will be mailed to you. Additionally, your full selection of photos will be available to you on our website where you can select and order prints for up to 2 years after your wedding date. You can choose to extend this time period by purchasing extended server storage time of 10 years of digital availability on our webservers.

Congrats, now it's off to your honeymoon!
