MAINE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

The mgp Experience

CONTINUE TO LEARN MORE

Whether you're a homegrown New Englander or dreaming of getting married in Maine from afar, on the coast or in the mountains, I will be along side you to capture every moment of the day. From the laughter to the tears, and all the memories in between, relive your wedding for the rest of your lives together through professional, meaningful images.

My goal is to make the process of choosing a wedding photographer as smooth and stress-free as possible, giving you more time to focus on the other important details of your big day. Keep reading as I walk you through the experience of working together, from booking to the day your images are delivered!

1. booking

After your initial inquiry and learning more about your special day, we will work together to find the wedding collection that works best for you. I strongly recommend scheduling a time to chat, either in person or via video call! This allows me to get to know you both better, hear all about your story and vision, and go over my process in even more detail than e-mail will allow.

So, you've decided we would be the perfect fit! To make booking your wedding date officially official, you will receive a custom proposal via email that includes your contract and invoice. Once the 25% retainer fee is received and contract is signed, we are ready to schedule your engagement session!

2. engagement session

Do you think you and your future spouse don't necessarily need engagement photos? I'm here to tell you...YOU DO!
Even if you think you're both the most awkward people in the universe (and if you do, trust me, I feel you. There is a reason I'm behind the camera instead of in front of it...), having an engagement session is the perfect time to get to know the way I work in preparation for your wedding day and have fun with your future spouse! You will be glad you did it.

Each engagement session includes an hour of shooting at the location of your choice. If you feel stumped, I have numerous great locations throughout Maine and New England. There is a one week turnaround time for your edited images to be delivered to your inbox in an online gallery, allowing you to get those save-the-dates ordered sooner rather than later!

3. planning

The process of getting married can be a rollercoaster, so surrounding yourself with wedding professionals who have (figurative) barf bags on hand is important! I am always available for questions, advice and moral support.
 As your wedding day approaches we will schedule another meeting, whether it be in person, via Skype, or phone call, to go over all your timeline, important family formal shots, and any other details so nothing gets missed during the excitement of the day.

4. the wedding day

Woohoo, your day is HERE!
While the course of events will depend on your specific plans and amount of photography coverage, I will be there by your side to capture all the special moments, carry your train, pin boutonnieres on groomsmen, dance to any nostalgic 2000's hits with camera in hand, and more!

CONTINUE TO LEARN MORE

5. delivery

As you head off to your honeymoon, I will be hard at work editing your beautiful images! A sneak peek will be posted on the Melissa Gebert Photography Facebook page the morning after and your wedding will be featured on the blog later that week!
You can expect your entire finished gallery within 14 days.
If your collection includes an heirloom album, we will work together to select the perfect image and design. The finished product will be in your hands 2 months after the final approval!

I was born and raised in a small town in midcoast Maine, where I still reside to this day! After picking up a camera at age 13, I haven't put it down since. My favorite thing is getting to photograph wonderful people, people like YOU!
