We are the right photographer for your portraits/wedding. All photographers create images of you, your family, your wedding, your children. Amy May Photography goes beyond just creating images of you. 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 images.
We take the time to get to know you and how you connect with the camera. We are here to guide you through the process of planning your shoot; capturing special moments, and creating artistic images that will be handed down for generations.
During your session/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 you relax and capture you in a natural way.
About two weeks after your session 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. Be the envy of all your friends when they see your image on the wall.
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.
Almost as soon as the festivities are over, you’ll be eager to look at the photos so you can relive your big day over and over again. Amy May Photography provides a “sneak peek,” and a timeline for when the rest of the pictures will be available. Our studio provides an online gallery and mobile app for you to share all of your images with your family and friends. Let’s get started!
