with the Clove & Kin family

The Wedding Experience

We are photographers who believe in savoring and celebrating the in-between moments.
 
Your parent’s reactions to the vows in the front row, the smirks and glances shared during the toasts, the emotional moment he sees you in your dress for the first time…. These little moments make up the fabric of any wedding day, and it’s our job to capture them authentically so that you can experience the full story of your day again and again. 
 
It's a privilege for us to be trusted with such meaningful memories - we'd be honored to be entrusted with yours!
 
 

A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES

the details

You've thoroughly combed through our website, blog and Instagram feed and you’re thinking “these are my kinda people!” Let’s set up a time to chat and get to know each other better, hear all the lovey-dovey details, and introduce you to your photographer.

We’ll pour you a cup of tea or coffee (or a glass of wine) while you tell us your story.

STEP ONE

We’ll customize a proposal just for you, so you won’t pay for anything you don’t need! You’ll book right online (it’s super simple), and once your date is officially reserved, we'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day. 

From start to finish, the booking process should feel like a breeeeeze.

Now the real fun begins! Together, we’ll choose a location that fits the two of you, we’ll create gorgeous images, and you’ll get a little practice in front of the camera. Best of all, we’ll all have a blast!

Let’s celebrate the sweet story that got you here - and capture exactly who YOU are.

STEP Three

session

After your engagement session, we’ll sit down together in our studio for the grand reveal! In this design session, you will see your images for the first time (while sipping champagne), choose your favorites, and walk away with a plan to cherish them forever in your home.

 There’s nothing better than sipping champagne while seeing your images for the first time!

We love to say that “spontaneity is the reward of preparation.” We help you prepare well for all of your wedding moments, so you’ll have a stress-free day with plenty of space to savor and just be you. Three months ahead of the wedding, we’ll put together a timeline and a list of family portraits for you. 

We’ll be your guide in crafting a wedding day timeline built for savoring.

STEP FIVE

well

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. We’ll be there (with huge smiles!) to capture every bit - but most importantly, to help you stay fully immersed in the moment. 

Take a deep breath - because you’re about to
become newlyweds!

STEP Six

day

A few weeks after your wedding, we'll sit down together to reveal your images, finalize your album design, and order beautiful wall art to preserve the day on your walls and in your hearts forever. Cheers!

Our favorite step - it’s time to relive all the feels & see your images for the first time!

WORD ON THE STREET

"He was my partner in making sure this was the best day of my life."

Laguna Beach, California 

harlan + vanessa

Our photographer did more than just take pictures - he was my partner in making sure this was the best day of my life. He prayed with me, slowed me down, and took the extra step to make sure it was a perfect day.

Your story is not just meant for today - it’s meant for thirty years from today.  

Which means that the best way to cherish your images for decades to come is by preserving them in beautiful prints and an Heirloom Wedding Album.

Because as we all know, technology changes rapidly. In 30 years, you won’t be viewing your images on a flash drive or in a Facebook album.
Physical heirlooms, like albums and prints, stand the test of time and last through the generations.

Timeless wedding albums hold all of the emotion from your wedding day... right at your fingertips. 

And your someday-kids or nieces and nephews will be able to experience your love story for themselves because you invested in products that last.

Our purpose at Clove & Kin is to create precious physical heirlooms that exude the elegance, beauty, and emotion of your wedding, so that your most cherished memories are preserved for generations.

PRESERVING YOUR MEMORIES FOR THIS GENERATION AND THE NEXT.
