innovative, compelling & authentic images!

Bourgmont Winery Wedding
Hello! We’re so glad you’re here! Choosing a wedding photographer can be a daunting task. How do you sort through all the recommendations you’ve gotten?   You want to look amazing, have fun with your photographer, and have a helpful hand on your wedding day.  
We want to be more than just your photographer.  We want you to feel as if we are your wedding planer. We are here for you through the planning process through post-wedding.

All photographers create images of you, your family, your wedding, your children.  Amy May Photography goes beyond just creating images.  We are with you every step of the way.  You are trusting your photographer to capture treasured moments and the decision on who to hire should include more than just a budgeted item. We are here to decorate your home.

Our studio will assist you with your timeline for the “big day”. This is helpful as it ensures we have enough time throughout the day to capture the images that will become your first heirloom.

During your engagement session and wedding we will help guide you through posing, expression, and engagement with the camera.  Most people don’t love being in front of the camera; we are here to help authentic way.

About two weeks after your wedding we will meet to view your images and show you all the different options for printed images.  We offer Signature Albums with lay-flat pages with every wedding package and have many options to customize your album including companion albums for your family.  We’ll also help you choose your wall decor & gift prints.  We can even show you how your wall(s) will look before you purchase any wall art.  We have many new innovative products to share with you.  

We are here for YOU!  You are trusting professionals to be creative and capture YOU.  We hope you are drawn to our style and value professional imagery.  Let us create for you.

We’d love to schedule time to speak with you about your vision.  The consultation is free and there’s no obligation to book our services.

The best photographers get booked quickly — sometimes as much as a year in advance, so don’t wait until the last minute to book your photographer.

Now is not the time to skimp on your photo budget. Call around and get a price range for services and remember: when the cake is long gone and the dress is stored away, your wedding photos will be the only thing left.

Only hire someone who has liability insurance, experience taking the style of photos you want, backup equipment and a plan for when things go south. Ideally, he or she is a PPA photographer. PPA photographers have the technical expertise and artistry to make you look your best and bring your vision to life. 

Ask to view an entire wedding album to see a photographer’s true style and get a sense of how he or she might tell your “story.”

PPA wedding photographers can also help you create that shot list as they know what key moments tell a wedding story. But talk about your must-haves and walk through the entire program with your photographer ahead of time. Share your expectations ahead of time to ensure that your vision becomes a reality.
