The Process

At Ledra Davis Photography, the process is designed to be easy and painless.
After all, you have enough to worry about for your most special day….

Meeting You

I love meeting new people – especially people in love. An initial meeting is a very important part of the process. It allows us to get to know one another and to determine if we are a good fit. I will even come to you - it’s that important. You hire a wedding photographer to record and capture your day. But the photographer is also there to capture the spirit of the day and the personal experiences of the Bride and Groom. It helps me to do this if I can get to know you a little before you actually walk down the aisle. I want your personalities to shine through onto your images. This is what makes the difference between my wedding images and those of any other photographer. Our meeting also serves to help guide you through the early planning stages of the wedding day celebration. Knowing how to schedule your day properly allows me to capture as much of your special day as possible.

The Engagement Session

This session is done before the wedding, normally anywhere from 6 months to several weeks before the ceremony. This session is a benefit for both of us. I get to see you and get to know you through the eye of the camera. I get to learn how you interact with each other and how you react when a camera is present. In doing this it will help ease any jitters that you may have about having your picture taken hundreds of times in a single day. In addition, you get wonderful images of the two of you that aren’t tied to any particular day. These are images of you and your significant other – just being together and just being you. It will be the most accurate representation of your relationship to date. These will be images that you will want to display in your home for a very long time.

The Bridal Session

This is a time for the Bride to do her full dress rehearsal. We often try to time this session with the hair and make-up run through. First, you get the chance to have images made of just you, the Bride. Second, since these images are not taken on the wedding day, you are much more relaxed and we have much more time to make sure that we get perfect images that you will love. Third, the images serve as backups in case something occurs on the wedding day that would prevent taking ideal photos – for example – inclement weather on the actual wedding day. Forth, trying on your dress and shoes in a bridal store is one thing, but wearing them for 12 hours is entirely different. This session gives you a much needed opportunity to take a test drive of your wedding day attire.

The Wedding Day

Ah, the Big Event! Months of planning finally culminate into this one day. Here is where the real capture begins. I don’t just photograph your standard wedding day pictures – i.e., the family pictures before the ceremony, the ceremony itself and the cutting of the cake. Of course, you get those shots, but that is not where it ends. You have my full attention from the very first hot roller all the way through to the throwing of the bouquet. Not only will you end up with beautiful images that you will want to frame for the coffee table, but you will end up with an amazing album detailing the complete story of your wedding day. You will remember what it felt like to climb into your wedding day attire. You will remember your emotions upon seeing your future spouse for the first time on that special day. You will get to relive the little things that may have escaped your attention the first time around due to all of the excitement of the day. Put simply, I capture your entire day…the laughter, the nervousness, the silliness, the small details, the tears of joy and the love. I am a storyteller. That, is what I do.

What to Expect After the Wedding

At Ledra Davis Photography, the process of proofing and ordering your final prints is amazingly simple? Once your images are ready, you will receive a private link directing you to view your images online. They will be posted using state-of-the-art software that allows you to see the image and order right from that page. It couldn’t be easier. In 7-14 days from the day that you order, you will receive your prints via UPS delivery.
