8FMDPNF Hello! I know that you can't see me right now, but imagine I'm sitting across from you at your favorite coffee shop with a big grin on my face (and a delicious beverage in hand). And imagine we're about to get to know each other really well. I like to start out any meeting with a hug or a high five, so let's also pretend that we've already done both those things. Before I get into all of the details about myself, I'll start by telling you my name. I think that's a good place to start, after all. My name is Hannah and I am married to a wonderful man named Aaron. Together we live with our miniature pinscher (our little rescue baby) and 6 little chickens. I'm more than that though. I'm a lover of the arts, a fan of great food, organic garndening and am also an accomplished photographer. Since I first started my journey with Hannah Wehrheim Photography in 2012, I've photographed many happy couples all across the state of Washington.

I believe in my little business. I invest in learning and the best equipment, read every book I can get my hands on, studied photography in college and am constantly trying to learn new ways to do my job better. You may have guessed it already, but I'll tell you anyway. Photographing couples is one of my my absolute favorite thing in the world. I love capturing that "zing" between an in-‐love couple -‐-‐ the adoration for each other that's written on their faces. Sometimes the electricity is so intense I come home feeling like a little rubbed off on me. Being surrounded by all that love is just another perk of my job. In addition to photographing the ardor between a happy couple, I also love photographing all the carefully planned details of a wedding, as well as those unforgettable moments that simply must be captured on film for posterity. Whether it's the cascading lace on a bride's gown, the happy tear in a father's eye as he's walking his little girl down the aisle, the breathtaking cake that must've taken hours to perfect, or the groomsmen boogy-‐ing on the dance floor, I love being there to document it all. Fun fact: I discovered my love of photography while taking a summer elective course. And, like any creative person, my work has only become better over time. Not just because I'm more familiar with all the ins and outs of my handy camera, but because I've also gained life experience over the years. Let me share my passion and years of photography experience with you. Maybe we can get that coffee for real? Call me! Yours, Hannah



4)08645)&-07& First and foremost, you should have an engagement session done because it's fun. You get to pamper yourself and dress up and -‐-‐ here's the best part -‐-‐ snuggle and kiss your best friend for a good hour or two. Engagement sessions also serve as prime bonding time for you two. In fact, many of the couples I photograph tell me that their engagement shoot brought them closer together, something they didn't think possible considering how much they were in love already. How's that for amazing? Think about it, though. When you're doing intimate things such as just looking into each other's eyes, holding your partner's hand or resting on his shoulder in very romantic settings, it's impossible not to fall more in love. Truth: In our fast-‐paced world, sometimes we forget to enjoy the silence and the moment and just be together. There are also practical reasons for an engagement session, too. For example, many people use shots from their engagement shoot for save the dates, wedding invitations and even thank you cards post-‐wedding. (Psst. We can totally hook you up with those extras.) Your engagement photographs are also great to use on your engagement website, for announcing your engagement online and for simply documenting yourself as a young and in-‐love couple. I promise you, your grandkids will get a kick out of these pictures in, say, 50 years!

5)&*/7&45.&/5 8NSLQJ1F^JW(FPJ  With 2 hours of coverage, this wedding package is perfect for elopment ceremonies or couples who are looking for coverage of their ceromony and formal photos only. This package includes a consultation, one shooter on the day, and 150-�200 of your photos fullly edited available for you to pick up or be mailed to you 4-�6 weeks after your wedding date (but usually MUCH sooner).

)TZGQJ1F^JW(FPJ  This is our most popular wedding package, and for good reason. In addition to four hours of coverage on your wedding day, we'll also do an engagement mini photo session on a date we choose together. You’ll have one shooter to cover your wedding events that are the most important to you.The Double Layer Cake Collection provides you with a $50 printing credit and 300 digital negatives (edited) from your wedding and 20 from your engagement session.

9WNUQJ1F^JW(FPJ Our most elite package, the Triple Layer Cake Collection includes six hours of coverage of your wedding day in addition to an engagement session and two hours of coverage at your wedding/bridal shower. You'll have two shooters at your wedding and one at the other events, ensuring every single moment is caught on film. You'll also receive a $100 printing credit and 500-�600 digital negatives (edited) from your wedding day and 50-�100 digital negatives from the other events photographed.



5*14 Create a detailed timeline your wedding day that includes when flowers are set to arrive, when people should arrive, when hair and makeup will get done, etc. Include exact times and locations. Share this timeline with everyone involved in your wedding, including your photographer.

Have a "spot checker" on hand who's there to help you out with things like tangled trains, smeared lipstick or out-�of-�place hair. This can be someone in your bridal party or the mother of the bride, for example.


Have food on hand while you get ready. I made the mistake of barely eating on my wedding day and ended up with a headache. Having healthy snacks and lots of water on hand will make for a better day.

Whether you're doing your makeup yourself or having a makeup artist come in, do a trial run. This is especially important if you have sensitive skin, as an allergic reaction on your wedding day would not be good.

Practice walking in your wedding day shoes to make sure they're comfortable enough to stand around in for your portraits and for the duration of your wedding. Pain is beauty, yes, but looking pained in a picture isn't worth the discomfort.

Order at least 25 extra wedding invitations than you think you'll need. It's better to have extras "just in case" and often times it's less expensive to buy in bulk than to order just a few extra.

Pack a "wedding day emergency" kit and bring it along with you on your big day. Essentials include some clear nail polish for snags, pain reliever for headaches, any makeup you need for touching up and a travel sewing kit. Band-�Aids, lozenges, tampons and tissues are also good.

Follow up with all your vendors a week before your wedding to make sure everything is in place and ready to go. Should anything be wrong (say, the florist only has you down for 4 bouquets instead of 5), this will provide plenty of time to fix the mistake.

Have your cake and flowers arrive at the latest possible moment (but still budget in some buffer time). Flowers wilt and cakes can melt on hot days, so putting these deliveries off can ensure both look great for your pictures, ceremony and reception.

Sent contract and retainer. This is done at the time of booking.

Scheduled engagement session. 2 months or more in advance.


Expect the unexpected. Sometimes things don't go as planned, and that's OK. In the long term, it's your outlook and attitude that makes for a brilliant, successful day.

Schedule wedding consult (set for 1 month prior to wedding). Schedule 2 months in advance.

Submit must-�have wedding shots. Send 2 weeks prior to wedding.
