Family photography Gilbert Arizona

 I always get nervous before photo shoots. Especially if I have never met the people before. So as i pulled up to the San Marcos resort in downtown Chandler I may or may not have been whispering a prayer that my clients would like me.

And that i wouldn't trip over anything.

hey, it's happened before.

But Courtney and her family put me right at ease. They even brought a friend along to help get some giggles from their little one.

Such a good idea !!

Thanks for hanging out with me Courtney. Your family is adorable !!

What is included with a laurenjean wedding.

If you are reading this, chances are that YOU my friend are planning a wedding. And if you are planning a wedding that means you are engaged!!


This is such a crazy, hectic, and exciting time in your life. Trust me when I say the big day will be here before you know it. One of the first vendors a couple will book is their wedding photographer. This can be an overwhelming task, to say the very least.

There are literally thousands (if not more) talented photographers out there who would love to be a part of your big day. The purpose of this post is to let you know what makes the Lauren Jean Wedding Experience so special

First things first, let’s meet face to face. Let’s sit down at a coffee shop and chat about your wedding. I want to know the small things, like how you and your fiance met, how did he propose, what are the colors of your wedding?  After all knowing more about you and your style will help me take pictures that truly reflect you and your fiancĂ©’s taste on your wedding day.  This is also a great chance for me to answer any questions you may have about me and my style of photography.

Up next - The E- session (the engagement shoot).  Each LaurenJean wedding package comes with an engagement session. We will meet up at an outdoor location of your choice for 1-2 hours and have some fun. This is a great chance for you, your fiancĂ© and me to hang out and get to know each other a little better before the big day. You will receive 20-25 pictures of your session that you will have full printing rights to :). That's right FULL printing rights. That means you may print the pictures yourself or order though me. I have had clients do lots of creative things with their engagement photos. They use them for everything from wedding invites, to center-pieces, to favors. The sky is the limit.

The big day- Phew, it’s here. The day. YOUR day. The day that starts your family. Your life together. My AWESOME assistant and I will show up early to find rockin locations to take your pictures at.  I will take pictures of each step of your big day; you getting ready, your fiance getting ready, your dress, your shoes, the ceremony, of course all of your posed pictures, and the fun stuff at the reception.

Fair warning, I will probably cry a little at your wedding.

That's just how I roll.

After the big day- within 24 hours you will see a sneak peek of your pictures on my facebook and/or blog. Within 36 hours you will have a slide show of all the highlights from your big day set to music. You may e mail the link to family and friends, and share it on any of your social networking sites.

Pretty awesome stuff.

Then in about 6 weeks you will have a DVD jam packed full of your wedding pictures. Once again you have full printing rights. 

Please contact me for pricing. My 2010 pricing will be expiring soon. If you book your wedding before Jan 1st you may still take advantage of it.

I look forward to meeting you :)

Steve & Stephanie Arizona wedding photographer

Stephanie laughed as she confessed to wearing her wedding dress around the house once when Steve left town. She looked over her shoulder at her bridesmaids and smiled as she recreated the pose she did in front of her mirror. She looked absolutely beautiful in her wedding dress.

When Steve saw her for the first time he smiled from ear to ear. You could see it all over his face that he felt like the luckiest guy on earth to be marrying his love on that lovely October day.

The ceremony was held at the Wigwam resort in Avondale Arizona. The couple said their vows with their close family and friends both local and visiting from Wisconsin watching.

They celebrated with a very fun reception held at the UTI school in Avondale where they danced the night away.

Congratulations Steve and Stephanie. Thank you for allowing me the honor of photographing your wedding day !
