WORKING WITH COURTNEY GRANT PHOTOGRAPHY
On the day of your wedding, you won’t find me hovering around just waiting to snag a shot of the main event. You’ll find me in the action: laughing with your bridesmaids and groomsmen, smoothing the wrinkles out of dresses, straightening stubborn bowties, and putting anxious family members at ease by showing off our carefully crafted timeline for getting the best photos of your day — all with a camera in hand.
I’m blessed with the opportunity to be the one capturing you and your family throughout the stages of life, from your engagement to your wedding day to your anniversary, even as your family grows when you add a new puppy (and boy do I love puppies!) or a precious baby to the family! To witness your family through my camera lens and capture the love, compassion, and genuine laughter between you and your significant other sets my heart on fire and fulfills me on another level because I know just how precious those photos will be for years to come.
WE’VE GOT YOUR ANSWERS
HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS
The answer is simple – just about anywhere! I’ve never turned down a wedding due to distance and I don’t intend to! I love to travel and I’m upfront about the extra cost you can expect, from milage to hotel costs if needed. Engagement sessions, bridal sessions and weddings that take place inside the Winston Salem area are free of travel charge and I’m happy to make recommendations for locations if needed.
SHOULD WE DO A FIRST LOOK?
The good news is – it’s totally up to you! But, I can provide some helpful tips that may help you decide!
Check out the sunset time for the day of you wedding. If it looks like you’ll have zero time for photos during golden hour, we can rework the timeline so we can make this happen! A first look is a great way to ensure you’ll have some wiggle room to either fit all photos in before the ceremony with natural lighting, or have some extra alone time with your significant other for bride and groom portraits during the prettiest time of the day.
HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE DO YOU RECOMMEND?
All wedding collections come with a minimum of 7 hours. Depending on your wedding, you may need less, or more hours. I’m extremely flexible when it comes to fitting your needs. If you require less hours, I’ll be able to quote a custom collection for you. If you require more hours, we can easily add these on to any collection you choose. If you’re unsure about how many hours you need, I’ll be able to give an honest recommendation based on the details of your wedding day.
WHEN WILL THE ENGAGEMENT / BRIDAL SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Once I receive your deposit we’ll move forward in setting up your engagement and/or bridal session. Your engagement session can take place as early after booking as you’d like! I usually shoot bridals no less than 2 months out from the wedding day to ensure time for editing and ordering any tangible products you may want.
Engagement and bridal sessions take place Monday – Friday.
Saturday’s are reserved for weddings, and Sunday’s I enjoy time with my family.
