Today we’re sharing Part Four of our series which talks all the 5 top ways the Amanda Olivia Photography team works to serve you, and what it’s like to work with us!

01. Here to Serve You Every Step of the Way

We believe in helping you craft the day of your dreams and providing you with the most incredible experience on your wedding day. So we ensure that we are serving you in whatever way you need. Beautiful pictures are a top priority for us but you having a wonderful experience is just as important!

So from carrying dresses, to styling you perfectly, to bringing you food and water, to making sure Grandma is comfortable and thought of, to addressing family conflicts, to everything in between we are here for you!

02. A Friend to Stand Beside You on Your Wedding Day…and a Lasting Friendship

We spend so much time communicating with you and your wedding planner that by the time your day arrives we know each other pretty well and are excited to see one another once your wedding day arrives! All this upfront communication, planning, and organizing builds a pretty incredible relationship. I’m so grateful to say that I am friends with almost every single couple I’ve photographed and stay up to date with them after their wedding date.

It’s so nice to have a friend by your side photographing you on one of the most treasured days of your life cheering you on every step of the way!

Heck I’ll even lend you my rain boots when the ground is soggy and wet from all the rain, but you have beautiful landscape portraits in mind like I did with this beautiful bride (below). #anythingtogettheshot

03. A Team of People Getting Full Coverage of Everything Happening

We always photograph weddings with an amazing team of people to ensure that we are in multiple places at one time capturing all the amazing elements of your wedding day. So while I’m out capturing your newly wed portraits, my second shooter is photographing your cocktail hour and guests.

This is such an important element of service we provide to document the entire experience that is your wedding day. We know that being a bride and groom sometimes means that you don’t have the opportunity to slow down and enjoy every moment, but that’s where we come in. We capture everything so you can always look back at the moments that went into your wedding day.

04. Someone to Put Out Small Fires…That You’ll Never Know About

Let’s face it, we can plan and plan and plan, but nothing is perfect and sometimes things can get a little messy. But that’s where we got you! Our job is to ensure that you get to relax, be PRESENT during your wedding day, and enjoy your time with your friends and family. That’s why we put out all the little fires and handle the sticky situations so you don’t have to!

05. Someone to use as a sounding board

There are a lot of decisions you have to make about your wedding day even if you have a full service planner. So I am here for you to act as a sounding board to bounce ideas off of, help talk through what different elements may look like, etc. I’ve helped talk through all kinds of logistical questions, timeline questions, and even helped brides decide on wedding gowns!

Any way you put it, we’re here for you because it’s so important to me that you have the most incredible experience possible.
