This is the stuff that means absolutely everything.
I know all that goes into writing a love story, I'm familiar with the way your heart beats for your person. I can relate to the way a long hug from the love of your life holds the power to make everything feel right in the world, and I know the friendship that exists between you two is the deepest you've ever felt. I know the depth in which you love your person and it's my greatest pleasure to document that connection.
I'm here to make your fondest memories tangible simply by guiding you through the photo experience while encouraging you to show up exactly as you are.
I will capture the one-of-a-kind love between you and your honey and we'll have a damn good time doing it.

When should we book?
As soon as you can! I have bookings up to 18 months out. If you know you’d like me as your wedding photographer, please inquire with me before you secure your date! This way we can make sure I am definitely available for you. If you’ve chosen a date and picked your venue (yay, congrats!), get in touch as soon as possible. If your wedding is in 3 months and you’ve just been a little casual in the wedding planning area, hit me up! We’ll see what we can figure out. I just might have your day still open.
What is your booking process?
You inquire, I reply. We set a time to get on the phone. I know so many of you aren’t “phone talkers” but we can cover 6 emails of back n forths, on a 10 minute phone call. We chat, we vibe, we talk details, you ask for a proposal, I send it right over. We go over any questions you might have. You sign the proposal, I sign the proposal, and it becomes a contract. Then you send me a little money to secure the date, and we’re official! After you’re booked, I send you my 22 page Bride Guide, a copy of your wedding contract, and a zillion virtual hugs.
How do we pay you?
A 50% non-refundable retainer is due to secure a date on my calendar. For weddings, the balance is due 30 days before your wedding date and the invoice and payment plan will be embedded in your wedding contract. For sessions, the balance is due the day of your shoot!
What if we are the most awkward people on the planet?
Welcome to the club! Literally 95% of my clients say that they’re awkward. Here’s the thing: If you and your partner have fun together, and there is love present… That’s all you need. I’m not about posing you into looking like something you guys aren’t. Now I will say, if you are wanting more intimate photos, you have to come prepared to be intimate in front of me! Don’t worry though, we’ll build up to that.
Why is the retainer non-refundable?
Such a good question! When you book a session, I secure the date for you, declining any other business for that date. If you for whatever reason choose to cancel your session, the retainer is to protect Katie Iredale Photography and offset any loss of business.
How long until we see our photos?
I always send sneak peaks within 24 hours. Sessions are delivered within 72 hours and weddings take up to 4 weeks. I love to text images as I edit so that you have a few on your phone right away. Once I have edited all of your images, I create a beautiful online gallery for you to download your images.
