The Wedding Experience Guide

Exclusively for AR couples

Wedding photography's an investment. You shouldn't have to be your own expert on how to maximize your wedding day photography coverage! That's why we've created this 40+ page guide for all our couples. The goal of this guide’s to help couples plan their wedding day in a way that’ll allow us to provide them with the BEST experience possible.

Topics include:

We don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! AR Couples are unique, because we serve a specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants authentic, radiant portraits of herself & her new groom, then she needs more than just pretty pictures. She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with us is determining if we're the perfect fit for you! After getting to know you over the phone, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process!

It's not a one-size-fits-all industry!

Let's get to know each other

Securing the details

Yay!!! You were made to be an AR Couple! Now let's make sure your wedding date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality! We send you a custom online booking contract and invoice that has every detail of your investment mapped out! Once you review and pay your retainer, WE say ‘I do’ and make everything officially official! Now the real fun begins!

 Lets make this dream a reality!

It's officially Official!

Ready? Let’s go! After you book, you'll receive your Wedding Experience Guide that's packed full of information to help maximize your wedding day photography coverage. If you added an engagement session to your package, we will schedule that too! We absolutely thrive at helping couples get comfortable and feel like themselves - you will be posing, "kissing with your teeth", and walking hand-in-hand pros! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken," you'll both be crushing it! After your engagement session, you’ll be featured on the blog and will also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.

Timeline building

When we’re eight weeks out from your Big Day, we’ll start making sure that we're completely prepared and ready for your wedding! The ARP Wedding Experience Guide has many example timelines to help ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos---you know, all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detailed images that look like they are straight out of a magazine? We're available to help AR Couples plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! From first-look timelines to big reveals at the aisle, we have you covered and our templates make it easy to share with the rest of your vendors.


Wedding day

We believe in telling the full story of our couples' wedding day, so it's rare that we find ourselves shooting less than 8 hours. We make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every couple needs, while also capturing the moments in between in a creative and unique way. At this point, we’ve gotten to know you so well but one of our favorite parts of the wedding day is portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet your loved ones! We like to share wedding images while everyone's still on cloud nine from the big day instead of keeping couples waiting. So, you’ll be featured on the AR Blog within a week of your wedding!

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax, and let me and my second shooter get to work! 

gallery & Album Design

After your wedding day is over, you'll receive an online gallery telling your wedding's story within 4-6 weeks! We’ve even had some AR couples request our exclusive Preview Parties for their big gallery reveal. We totally love hosting these for anyone that can attend! This is also where we'll bring artwork for you to see, touch, and order!

Grab your favorite drink and relive your wedding day!
