The Bride’s Guide to a Birchwood Wedding

Step 1: Friendship!


Step 1: Friendship!




We believe just like marriages, the right person is important when choosing your wedding photographer! We know Birch Brides are very unique and we work hard to find them! We serve a bride that acknowledges that if she wants intimate, beautiful pictures then she needs more than beautiful portraits. She needs an Experience! The first step toward working with us is determining if we are the right match for you! After we get to know you a little online, we can see if we are a great pair. Then, we can move forward with the booking process!

Step Two: Save the Date!

Congratulations! You’re a Birch Bride! Let’s make it official and save your date! Making sure your date is secure can start the planning process. We’ll send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your contract, and pay your deposit. Then, you’ll officially be a Birchwood Couple! It’s time to get started!!!

Let the fun begin! After you become an official Birchwood Couple, we will schedule your engagement session! No worries if you’re nervous about your portraits being taken! Even if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken” or you feel like you’re not photogenic We will walk you through everything! It is my goal to make you feel completely comfortable in front of the camera so you can be your best self! I will spend enough time with you to get rid of any nervousness or anxiety you may feel. After your engagement session you’ll be featured on our Facebook page, Instagram and our Birchwood blog. We will also send you an online gallery of images to download and share however you wish! There is even an option to print right from your gallery too so we have you covered!

Step Four: Talking Through Timelines

Step Four: Talking Through Timelines



Once we are about 8 weeks out from your big day we will start preparing your wedding day timeline. We love creating custom timelines for our couples to ensure we capture every aspect of your wedding day. We don’t want to miss a thing! You know all those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine?! We work with our Birchwood Couples to plan their day so they can have images like that of their own. Making a photography-friendly wedding is important so we can capture all those images you just love!!

The day is finally here! It is now time for you to enjoy your day and let us do the work! We believe in telling the full story of our couples wedding day so we never shoot less than an 8 hour day. This day is going to go so quickly so we make it a priority to capture traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing moments in between. The week after your wedding we will post a Blog featuring your wedding day! We like to share our weddings while everyone is still excited instead of keeping our couples waiting.

Step Six: Gallery Delivery


Step Six: Gallery Delivery



After your big day, your blog posts, and some posts on social media you’ll get your full gallery 6 to 8 weeks after your wedding day. I encourage all of my couples to sit down together and get cozy while they look through their images. If your package includes an album, this is where we would start the design of your album.

  • My (now) Husband and I literally could not have picked a better photographer/videographer to shoot our wedding and engagement pictures. Elizabeth and Joel are SO great to work with, and their talent is incredible! We could not be more happy with their service and the resulting photos and video. They were both very focused on not only getting us the best pictures and video, but also making sure that we had the best wedding day possible. They go above & beyond what they are paid to do, and that is something so special! Thank you so much Birchwood studio for everything you have done for us!

    Book with Birchwood studio– they are the best in the business!

  • Elizabeth is awesome and continues to amaze me with her talents with every single image! I couldn’t imagine anyone else taking our pictures on this journey. She’s fun and professional and knows exactly what I want. Highly recommended!

  • It’s so hard to find the words.

    Elizabeth and Joel are like beautiful additions to your family the day of. They will laugh with you, cry with you, play with your children, and keep you laughing and smiling through all your wild emotions–all while working so incredibly hard (and seemingly effortlessly) to bring you the most magical photos you can imagine.

    Our wedding was short, impromptu and really had no time for photographs like traditional weddings. Elizabeth and Joel just went with it, in spite of desperately hoping for a timeline so they could fulfill their end of the contract.

    Looking at the photos, you’d never know that it was near the end of the day, that I was exhausted and that they had only just found the perfect spot and lighting to shoot, because I wouldn’t let them take me away from the fun to take photos of us.

    Thankfully, she made sure to get my mom to help reel me in, so I could have the most magical day of my life forever captured in photos that I can look back at for the rest of my life.

    I am crying right now, just thinking of how thankful I am for this never-ending gift.

    Birchwood Studio was put on this earth to shoot photos and to give this gift again and again to those that come to them.

    May God continue to bless them and the live’s they touch.”
