The Nuvo Wedding Experience
First Connection (Right Now!)
The first step in the wedding process is contact! Call or email us right now! We will answer any initial questions over the phone or email, but the next step will be to set up a consult in our in home studio so that we can all meet in person and get to know each other. Whether you reside in our local communities like Moncks Corner or our home base of Summerville, South Carolina, or are planning your big day from another state, we would love the opportunity to talk with you and take you thru the Nuvo process.
In Person Consultation (Shortly After the First Connection)
We can’t wait to get to know you and hear more about your wedding! We will set up a time that is convenient for you to come in to our home photography studio in historic Summerville, South Carolina and talk through all the details of your wedding day, learn more about you as a couple, find out your vision for your wedding, and just generally get to know you better!
Becoming a Nuvo Client (ASAP!)
Booking your Charleston wedding photography with us can happen at the initial consult or after you have had the chance to think things over and discuss whether we are the right photographer for you.We require a $500 retainer (which comes off your final balance) to lock in your wedding date with us and will draw up your wedding photography contract for you to review and complete.We do operate on a first-come first-serve basis, so the sooner you know that we are the perfect fit for you, the better to go ahead and book with us! We wouldn’t want someone else to book us first!
Choosing Your Collection (Within 2 Weeks of Becoming a Client)
Choosing your photography collection for your wedding day may be easy or may take some time to think about what you need. Either way is fine with us! You are more than welcome to have some time after securing your date to figure out exactly which collection is best for you and your day before we finalize the particulars on your contract. Keep in mind that products and hours of coverage can be added to any collection to customize it to your exact needs!
The Engagement Session (5 to 6 Months Prior to Wedding Day OR Whenever Works Best for You!)
The next step in the wedding experience is your engagement session. Engagement sessions are a ton of fun and a great way to supplement your wedding photography with images of you in normal clothes. The session is normally about 2 hours long and is on location, either in a location that is special to you or in a place that we have suggested. Some of our favorite engagement photography locations in Charleston include Folly Beach, Boone Hall Plantation, downtown Charleston, Mepkin Abbey among many others. Our style during this time is very laid-back and fun with lots of interaction based posing with dramatic and romantic ideas thrown in for variety. The engagement session is key to our process because it allows all of us to get to know each other better and creates a bond of trust between us. These images end up being a great idea for Save the Date cards, table numbers, or shower Thank You cards. These photos will be available to you in an online gallery which you are more than welcome to share with friends and family. The website allows for direct ordering, so it makes it easy for you or anyone else to order prints.
The Bridal Session (At Least 1 Month Prior to Your Wedding)
The bridal session is a great southern tradition that we love to include for our clients. This is a session for you as the bride alone before wedding day, where you have your trial run of hair and makeup for wedding day and we take a couple hours to do gorgeous and timeless images on location. Traditionally, brides will choose their favorite image and have it displayed at the wedding reception, but these images also work well added into your wedding album if you so desire. These photos will also be available to you in an online gallery which you are more than welcome to share with friends and family. The website allows for direct ordering, so it makes it easy for you or anyone else to order prints.
Wedding Schedule Meeting (2-3 Months Prior to Wedding Day)
Now is the time for us to meet or have a phone consult going over, in detail, the schedule of the big day! We have a detailed wedding day schedule that we will have you fill out at this time with tons of info on it such as the best types of rooms to get ready in, how long you should schedule creative photography, who should be included in your family portraits and anything else that is relevant to you having a perfect Charleston wedding photography experience on your big day. We like to have this meeting a couple months prior to the day so that you have the ability to change anything based on what we talk about together. For instance, sometimes a bride might, after speaking with us, realize that the room where she had planned to get ready is not ideal for beautiful pictures and be able to easily change it to a different place. We figure that the more informed we all are, the better your wedding photos will turn out!
The Wedding Day!
This is the fun part! Obviously, this day is the culmination of all the collective planning we have all been doing up to this point. Our game plan on wedding day is to make sure you look completely gorgeous in every single photo taken throughout the day. Sometimes pursuing this goal means being in the right place at the right time to capture beautiful, unplanned moments. Other times, this means encouraging interaction between the two of you, your family, and your bridal party in a flattering and natural way. Our direction for you on wedding day is purposefully planned out so that every photo looks like we were in the right place at the right time, even if those moments wouldn’t have happened without us there! We want you to relax, have fun, and let the day unfold as it’s meant to trusting us to capture your day gorgeously and completely.
Fufilling the Items in Your Collection (Starting 6-8 Weeks After the Wedding)
After the wedding day is over, we will begin the work on your images from wedding day. This post-processing time is very key to the work we do for you and we will help you through each step of the process. The first thing you will see from us will be a pre-design of your wedding album posted online. We want you to be able see our vision of the day in the story format it is supposed to be instead of just making you sort through hundreds of images all on your own. After you have seen the pre-design of your wedding album, we will post the rest of your wedding day proofs in a similar online gallery. It would be at this point that you would make any changes to your album design or the images that we have chosen within. Friends and family will be able to view this gallery online and make any purchases of prints right online. The wedding album is our main focus, but we will be available at anytime during this process to answer questions, make suggestions, or help you with anything.
