Hi, I’m Cami Not many people get to do what they love for a living. Cami Wade has a passion to capture special moments behind the lens. As soon as she discovered the great responsibility and joy that comes with wedding photography, she was hooked. Capturing the essence of love and life through photography became her mission, and she couldn’t ask for a better life and business experience. Her clients mean the world to her — each one has helped her develop into the photographer she is today.
A FEW OF CAMI’S FAVORITE THINGS

When we viewed our images for the first time, it was like reliving the wedding day â€” but almost better because we saw everything we had missed in the busyness. Friends and family dancing, special looks, and the way the sunset lit the field where the reception was. There are no words for how much we appreciate what Cami Wade did for us!
Heather & Michael
We couldnâ€™t have asked for a better experience. Cami was a great professional, a vital part of our wedding day.
Lynn & Mark 10 | Cami Wade Photography
When we met with Cami Wade, her warmth and genuine care for us came through. We are so glad we found her!
Nicole & Andrew
â€œI am beyond pleased with my experience with Cami. Her vision is romantic and dreamy - exactly the look we were hoping for. She did a beautiful job of capturing important moments at our wedding. Cami is extremely talented and sweet. We could have selected a more personable photographer.â€?

WHAT TO EXPECT Cami has been photographing weddings since 2007 and has had the privilege of working with fantastic couples. Part of her strategy to deliver quality images is getting to know you before the big day â€” a distraction-free one-on-one session allows her to get more information and makes you more comfortable with her! This has proven to be an essential element in giving you the highest level of service.Â
The day of the wedding, Cami wants you to be able to relax. She will work with you and your wedding coordinator on a rough timeline for the day, handle any last minute adjustments to the schedule, and help you remain in the moment. Cami has got your back during this most precious and honored day. Whether itâ€™s a romantic elopement or sweet and stunning church wedding, Cami focuses her time and attention on you!
FAQâ€™S HOW FAR SHOULD WE BOOK IN ADVANCE? The sooner the better in reserving the weekend you have selected. Ideally, 9-12 months in advance. DO YOU SHOOT WITH AN ASSISTANT? I do. The assistant will help keep us on track during the portraits and serve as a second shooter during the wedding ceremony and reception. DO YOU DELIVER EVERY IMAGE YOU CAPTURE? We donâ€™t, simply because not every picture tells the story of the day. I may have 10 shots of one thing as part of the creative process. I reserve the right to only deliver the images that best represent you as well as Cami Wade Photography. If there is an image that you were specifically looking for though, and did not receive, I would gladly work with you to get the details and deliver particular images of sentimental value.

WHEN WILL WE SEE THE WEDDING PHOTOS? Within 6 to 8 weeks, the images will be uploaded to the online gallery. DOES EVERY PACKAGE COME WITH AN ALBUM? All packages excluding Camiâ€™s base packages includes an album.
MAKING A WEDDING DAY TIMELINE Wedding timelines are a guideline. Like anything, don’t let your desire to be organized overwhelm the natural flow of the day. Rather, plan for the best and allow room for variations when needed! Guarantee on having some minor unforeseen changes so that it doesn’t take you by surprise when it happens. Most ceremonies last approximately 30 minutes. Factor in the readings, music, vows, rituals, etc. to get an estimate for your reception venue. Build your timeline backward and forward from the main event. Allow time for bridal party and family portraits directly after the wedding ceremony if at all possible. It’s best to have those pictures done quickly to ensure time for all the pictures needed and your swift arrival to the reception location. The portraits you see on www.camiwade.com are taken at a specific time of day Cami likes to call Golden Hour. Cami works indepth with her clients creating their timelines so that their schedule allows for bride + groom portraits at this key time of day (about 1-2 hours before the sun sets) This is crutial for her clients to understand the importance of Golden Hour. Photographing at this time is KEY for Cami’s uniqie Fine Art style.

WEDDING DAY TIPS 1. Fueling up can be one of the last things on your mind. Pack care packages for you and each of your bridemaids with snacks and water. Also ask your caterer to pack away two meals for you and your spouse. The reception tends to fly by between pictures and conversations.
2.Give yourself plenty of time to get ready. When your hairstylist arrives, have her start on the bridesmaids first. That way, you can get your makeup done before your hair, and tCami can get shots of the final part of your getting ready. We recommend that Cami arrive 1 to 1.5 hours before the bridal party is ready to go to the first event. This is also the time to get detail shots of the shoes, gown, and sentimental pieces.
3. The best way to guarantee great images is by being prepared for each shoot, communicating with the people involved, and giving Cami lists of important people to capture throughout the event. If Cami isn’t familiar with the site, she would love to scout it out with you prior to the event. This will cut down on unnecessary wasted time during the wedding!
4. Great pictures take a good amount of time. If you would like an off-campus photoshoot with the bridal party and/or immediate family members, plan on allotting 1.5-2 hours.
5. We recommend having first look pictures so that you can take your time as a couple and then with your group pictures before the ceremony. After the first look, get wedding party shots and then family pictures.
6. Encourage your family to be punctual to keep the day flowing well. If you are shooting wedding party pictures off site, look for a place to do family pictures on campus at the wedding venue, to eliminate family members getting lost.

7. If you have babies and children at the wedding and part of pictures, plan to take their pictures first so that they are happy and alert. It can be hard on everyone involved when a mom has been trying to keep their child happy for 20 minutes and then the child has a meltdown during the pictures because their tired or hungry.
8. Not having a first look? Allow 30 minutes to 1 hour post-ceremony for photos of you and your groom. If you did have a first look, you’ll still want 20-30 minutes post-ceremony for just the two of you.
9. Make time for photos of very large groups (like coworkers and large extended family groups) during the reception, when your DJ can announce to gather everyone. You don’t want to look back and think, “Why didn’t we get pictures of so-and-so!”
10. Make sure you and your significant other have special moments with your parents and take pictures with each one individually. It’s easy to forget in all the joyful moments, that this can be an emotional day for them.
