Thank you so much for choosing Jannicka Mayte to capture your wedding. I'm very honored and super excited to work with you!
I typically book anywhere from 2-6 hours of coverage for weddings and/or elopements. I always offer posed portraits of wedding party and family and will also capture a variety of candid and non-posed shots as well. You'll receive a mixture of posed and those in-between moments as well. You can expect at least 100 images per hour of coverage. A full gallery usually includes at least 100+ images per hour and is typically delivered four weeks after your wedding. I love shooting weddings at any of the amazing venues in Alaska, and I'm definitely a fan of those mountaintop/forest/backyard ceremonies as well.
My wedding questionnaire is listed below. I use this questionnaire to get to know my clients a little better, and it also serves as a way for you to tell me all of the important details about your big day. Fill it out as best as you can and be as specific as you want! You can never give me too much information as I will be using this info to get to know more about you, your style, and your wedding day.
I can create a customized timeline for your wedding day, if desired! I have sample timelines available for reference (timelines with a First Look as well as timelines without a First Look), and I can help you work out the details so your day will flow smoothly and you get the best photography experience possible. Of course, I always love to have as much time during the wedding day as we can for bride and groom portraits! It's best to schedule your bride and groom portraits during the prettiest light of the day, which is closer to sunset (specific times will vary depending on the time of year). I understand that this might not be possible depending on your ceremony and reception times, so if we can't do the bulk of your portraits at sunset, I always suggest scheduling a few minutes at sunset to slip away from the party and get a few shots of the two of you in the gorgeous light!
I spend the majority of the wedding day photographing it as it happens--the candid moments, the details and decor your worked so hard to put together, and of course, the wedding party and guests. My portrait checklist is listed below so you can let me know which portraits you would like me to specifically capture during the formal portrait times.
If you want to bring some fun props for your wedding photos, please let me know what you're thinking so I can give you the vision you're going for!
I work closely with my brides and grooms all throughout the wedding planning process. I'm here to help in any way I can, so please don't hesitate to call, text, or email for any reason. I'm a planner by nature and love to know what to expect on the wedding day. With that being said, I know that sometimes things don't always go quite as planned! If something does change at the last minute, I'm pretty flexible and will work with it and be super professional in the process. I don't want you to stress on your wedding day, so trust me to take care of it!
The most important thing of the day is to have FUN! I want this to be fun for you and for your guests. I laugh, I talk, and I smile a lot. I want to be your friend and I want your wedding coverage to be as custom to you and your day as possible. I want to photograph all of the special moments--both big and small--and all of the details you don't want to forget. Don't worry about posing; I have a few ideas and will always direct you into the lighting and pose that looks best.
So relax, have fun, and enjoy this time together and let me do all of the work. I can't wait!
