We consider ourselves photojournalists above all, meaning we are more interested in capturing honest moments during your wedding day than posing them. This approach allows your photos to transport you back to the moments that feel like you.
Congratulations on your engagement! We are so excited that you are interested in our studio and we can't wait to get to know you and your partner. The first step is for us to meet, which can be done over the phone or at our studio. During our initial chat we will talk about your vision for your wedding day and share some of our work with you.
The most important thing for us is to capture your love story in a way that feels authentic, natural and sincere. Our desire is to provide each of our couples with an amazing experience, down to the smallest detail.
Planning a wedding can feel like a lot, but we are here to help every step of he way! We will send you a wedding questionnaire to gather all the details as your date approaches. We will help you with the timeline, schedule and plan out all of our photo locations. We typically do this about one month before your wedding, but you are welcome to reach out to us anytime if you have any questions or need recommendations or suggestions!
We love to start the day with the getting ready process. This is where the story of your day begins! There are so many amazing moments filled with anticipation and excitement. The main photographer always stays with the bride and the second photographer stays with the groom, so we are able to capture both stories at two different locations.
This is also a great time for us to photograph the lovely details that you have spent so much time picking out and planning— shoes, dress, flowers, invitations, etc. We like to arrive about one hour before you put on your dress.
We encourage you to consider a first look! Not only do first looks provide undivided quality time together on your big day, but they also allow you to soak in what the day is truly meant for. It is the most intimate and special time to have with one another before you head into your ceremony. It gives you the chance to have more time together and not feel rushed. Building in that time gives us more flexibility with locations for your photos and you get to enjoy your entire cocktail hour and not feel like you are missing part of your wedding.
We want you and the entire bridal party to have a good time, be yourselves and enjoy the moment! We love to keep our posing movement based and very natural. We are always chasing beautiful light, capturing unscripted moments and genuine emotions.
Our goal is to bring out your personality and capture you in a fun, authentic way. And we are always happy to give you creative direction and keep you laughing! This part of the day takes about one hour.
We know how important family is and how much it means to you that we photograph everyone together! Prior to your wedding day, we will ask you to write down a list of family portraits that you would like us to take. We will build this into the timeline so everyone knows where and when family portraits take place.
Although this is the part of the day that is considered more formal and posed, we still have a fun approach and make sure your photographs look natural and beautiful. We like to get through this part of the day quickly and efficiently, so 30 to 45 is typically plenty of time.
The ceremony is the most intimate and emotional center point of your wedding! We feel truly honored to be there to document such an important moment in your lives. Having two photographers will allow us to capture key moments from various angels.
We will capture your ceremony with attention to the smallest details completely unobtrusively, being as discrete as possible. We make sure to not be a distraction to you or your guests during the ceremony.
During this time, the second photographer will photograph cocktail hour with a blend of candid photos and portraits.
This is a great opportunity to capture your family and friends mingling, laughing, chatting and hanging out. The main photographer will use this time to photograph details and set up lighting for the reception.
It's time to celebrate! We will be there to capture all the love, hugs, laughs, tears, and dance moves!
We promise to be as unobtrusive as possible, especially during all the formalities.
We also love take you out for golden hour sunset photos once all the formalities have taken place. If sunset photos aren't on your radar, we can also take some fun editorial/flash photos of the two of you at the end of the night.
Time, attention and love are devoted to processing and editing all of your photographs. We will upload all of your images to an online gallery and send you a thumb-drive with a box of favorites printed.
If you ordered an album, we will create a custom design for you to help get you started. There are so many beautiful fonts and cover materials to choose from when finalizing your album. We will be here for you every step of the way!
From the moment we met with Grace we knew we wanted her to be our photographer.
She is very approachable, professional, flexible and not to mention ridiculously talented. She also has a calmness about her that is so reassuring on what could be a stressful day. She was so unobtrusive yet captured so many great moments throughout the day/night.
We just received our photos and we absolutely love them! It was such a great experience from beginning to end and I can't recommend Asya Photography enough!
Her work speaks for itself and she was by far one of the best investments we made for our big day. Her photos are stunning and she truly documented the spirit of the day. Her candids managed to seize every laugh, smile and kiss shared by me and my husband. She was patient, kind, and a true professional… Asya has a special way of making people feel comfortable in front of her lens. She was worth the investment and I’m so lucky to have her photographs as memories our of wedding day.”
She is incredibly talented, but even more importantly she's such a lovely person that we felt honored to have with us. Asya is incredibly professional and diligent in her work, and yet somehow is able to radiate a warm and calm energy the entire time - which felt invaluable on my wedding day. I also know that she and her team made the rest of our friends and family feel that same warmth and comfort, and I've been a part of several weddings where the photographer is not able to do that. I can't recommend Asya highly enough!
Jen was the absolute best! She was super organized and communicative leading up to the big day and set me completely at ease… She kept the whole day moving and on time, wrangling our bridal party with such a great attitude and sense of fun! … I hardly noticed her during the reception. The only exception being when she came to my rescue when she saw my bustle had broken, and came over with a sewing kit to fix it herself. AMAZING! … I was so afraid of having overly staged or cheesy photos, but these were the opposite - full of beautiful candid moments. I highly, highly recommend Jen and Asya Photography!
