Why Shireen

I am so much more than your wedding photographer. From day one when you book with me you gain a friend.The relationship that I have with my clients means a lot to me and I don’t take it lightly one bit! 

When you book with SEP you know you are in good hands. I book a select number of weddings each year. This allows me to best serve my couples in the best way possible and not be overwhelmed. You are never just another booking on my calendar. My wedding couples are my friends.

The Process

The first step

Reach out via the contact form. Tell me about you and your fiance and all the details of your wedding. The more details the better! From there we will schedule a phone consultation- so we can get to know each other more. We will talk about all the fun stuff and find which package works best for you.

Doing the thing!

You’re ready. You want in! Yay!! I am so excited to welcome you!!! From here I will send you a contract and invoice to get you officially on the calendar. A signed contract and a retainer fee of $500.00 is required to lock in your date. This is all completed electronically for your convenience. Welcome to the SEP Wedding Family! It’s a serious fun time! Weddings are a big deal and I am here to help make your experience the best ever!

The engagement session

Now the fun begins. This is honestly one of my most favorite sessions! Couples are often very nervous for their engagement sessions, but I tell ya- that’s why we do this! We will discuss outfits and pick a location that speaks to you as a couple. We get to know each other on a more personal level. You bring the smiles and I’ll bring the champagne! It’s a “poppin” good time! See what I did there? ;) And by the end you will be a PRO for wedding day! And better yet, treat it like a date night- get your hair and make up done and make dinner reservations for after your session. Don’t let a good outfit go to waste!

in between

Let the good times roll! I am with you every step of the way throughout your planning process. I’ll send you tips and tricks and recommend local vendors to help make your special day even more magical. We stay in touch throughout your planning and a few weeks before your wedding we set up a meeting to finalize your timeline and photo request. You will receive a questionnaire form to fill out prior to our meeting so we don’t miss a thing!

The wedding day

The day is finally here!! You may be excited and nervous, maybe a little bit of both but don’t stress- I’ll be there as your little sidekick throughout the whole day! This is why having a photographer that you resonate with is so important because we have the privilege of being your shadow for the day to capture it in its truest form.

By now, we know each other. We have gone over all the details and planned out your timeline. All you have to do is ENJOY your day and take it all in. I’ll be there right with you to move things along and keep everything in check. With all my camera gear in towe and my trusty assistants, we will capture everything to make sure you can relive your day for years to come. From stepping into your dress to dancing the night away, I can’t wait to celebrate your day!!!


Photo delivery & product selections

After a wedding day, I get straight to work on your gallery. Sneak peaks will be posted to social media within 2 weeks following your wedding as well as a sneak preview gallery to hold you over until the completed gallery is finalized. Once you receive your full gallery then we can finalize the ordering process as you select your products and images for your album. Having your photos in print is so important. These memories deserve to be re-lived and displayed for your children to see! Not just live on social media. 

Investment

There are a variety of packages to best meet your needs. And if your day doesn’t quite fit in a package- don’t worry! We can create a custom hourly package that is just right for you!

The average SEP couple invests $3,500.
