If you are looking for a Photographer to capture your wedding day, we're glad you've found us! At Winterlyn Photography we strive to capture your wedding day in a joyful, authentic, and timeless fashion. We truly enjoy capturing the big moments, but we also love to capture the moments the Bride & Groom weren't even aware happened; the Flower Girl fiddling with her dress, the Father of the Bride dabbing his eyes during the ceremony, the way the Groom's jaw drops when he sees his Bride for the first time. The best Wedding Photography happens when the Bride and Groom can connect with their Photographer, trust their Photographer, and be excited about the entire process. We strive to make a connection with each of our couples in order to capture and share their unique love story in the most authentic and beautiful manner possible.   


Weddings & Elopements


You have the sparkly rock on your hand and now it's time to share your news with the world. This is such a joyous and memorable time in your lives, and it is this special time that we would truly enjoy documenting. All of our wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session. 

The wedding experience is designed to give brides and grooms the most value for their investment. All wedding collections include at least 8 hours of wedding day coverage, up to 1 hour Engagement session, high-resolution-edited images via a downloadable & shareable online gallery and print release. 

Days, months, or even years may have ticked by since you tied the knot. Don't forget there are so many more stages of life that are important to capture. Anniversaries and portrait sessions are a beautiful way to capture each and every phase of your family story.

Step One: Let's Be Friends


Step There: Engagements

Step five: Your wedding day!

Step six: gallery & album design

You deserve beautiful wedding images and,  just as important, an amazing photographic experience. I know that WP Brides are unique, and I work VERY hard to find them! I work with brides who know they want romantic, playful and beautiful portraits of herself and her Spouse. She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with us is determining if we are the perfect fit for you. I send all of my couples an in depth email & questionnaire to make sure we are the perfect fit! 

Yay!! You are now a WP Couple! I’ll send you a Custom online Booking Proposal where you can review your contract and package, and pay your deposit to make everything official. Now that you’re an official WP Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!!

It's time to schedule your engagement session! Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session 8 months or so before the wedding. My Wedding Experience Packages include a complimentary Engagement Session! And don’t worry... I’ll teach you EVERYTHING! I thrive at helping my couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED. I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes have gone by! After your session you’ll be featured on the WP Blog and your Online Private Gallery will be live for you to download, print and share! 

About 8 weeks out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! I will email you a list of questions, and from your answers I will be able to create a custom timeline for you based on lighting & the order of your events. Creating custom timelines for my couples helps ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! I love working with our WP Couples to plan their day so that no photographic opportunity is missed and that you get those beautiful images you have seen me produce. 

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! This day is going to be a blur to you, and so we make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every Bride needs, while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is the portrait time with my newlywed couple, and getting to meet all of the wonderful families and best friends!! After the wedding, you’ll be featured on the WP Blog the following TUESDAY! I love to share my weddings while the wedding is still so fresh in everyone's mind!  

Step four: timeline prep

After your wedding day is over, you will receive an Online Gallery full of all of your wedding day memories!  I encourage all of my WP Couples to sit down together the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your Custom Album Design (if you ordered an album!) and you can begin the customization process!
