Weddings

This is such an exciting time!! It’s such a special feeling knowing you have found the one who you will spend the rest of your life with!! Wedding photography is the longest lasting decision that you can invest in! We are honored that you are considering us as your wedding photographers!! When it comes to the images from your day, you don’t want to settle for just anyone and choosing your vendors shouldn't feel like an everyday transaction. You want to find YOUR perfect fit!! We love fun-loving couples who adore beautiful photos that capture the joyful, timeless, and candid moments from their special day!! As husband and wife wedding photographers, your wedding day is important to us too and it is important that each of our couples have an amazing experience every step of the way as you plan your dream wedding!!  We have actually been right where you are and completely understand all of the emotions! Being a former bride and groom has helped us to have a deeper desire to serve our couples! Your wedding day doesn’t happen everyday and it will absolutely fly by, so we want to ensure you that you can look back and relive all of those fleeting moments! When you look back, we want you to clearly remember how happy you felt to finally be husband and wife and how much you enjoyed being surrounded by family and friends! Those moments you didn’t even know happened, the laughs, the joy, the details, the dances with daddy, the happy tears, and all of the in between. 

We think it should be professional but we also think it should be personal since your photographers will be with you all day. It’s important to find someone you feel comfortable with! Having a meaningful relationship with our couples is vital in feeling comfortable and for you to know that you are not alone in this time of planning!! We want to make sure that you don’t stress about anything on your day and you deserve beautiful images that you can show your grandchildren how joyful your day was! We are excited for you to learn more about what it’s like to be an ACP bride and how it’s not just a typical photography experience!!

THE PROCESS

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 
WORKING WITH US

THE NEXT STEP

You've thoroughly combed through our website, blog and Instagram feed and you like what you see. So the next step is setting up a time to chat to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another.   

Let's chat over sweet tea, chocolate,  or whatever you love!! :)

You are the perfect fit for us and this is where our friendship begins!! Amanda & Chad (AC) Brides are a unique tribe! We serve joyful, timeless, authentic brides/couples who care about their memories. Once your date is officially reserved by a signed contract and retainer, we will end over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day! We’re happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timelines and guidance! 

Save the date! And now the fun begins!

We are devoted to learning all the details and hearing your vision for your wedding day! Around 6-8 weeks from your special day we will help you build a timeline that will prioritize what you want from your wedding photography and you can always trust us to listen carefully to your needs! With 8 years of experience, we can create a timeline that will allow us to create the exact flow that you want to give you amazing photos that will allow you to relive your day and so you can make the most of the time with family and friends! We’ll also use two easy questionnaires as well to gather all the information needed to be fully prepared for your Big Day.  

Timeline and Questionnaires

Every couple is unique and we love getting to know them at their engagement session!!  We love hanging out and by the time the wedding day comes around you are ready to roll through portraits like pros! We’ll journey to meaningful locations and you will have 2 outfit changes!! We will capture your love story and your engagement session is the perfect time for us to get to know you as a couple before your big day!!


The engagement session. Let's get you comfortable in front of the camera.

We check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day.

Let's get organized for the big day!

This is the start of a brand new adventure in your love story, and the day you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by family and friends! We will arrive early to prepare!! With the timeline in mind, we will help guide you every step of the way. Whether it’s fluffing the dress, grabbing you something to drink, or gently guiding posing we are here for you!! Chad is always with the guys during the day and I am always with the girls so that we don’t miss out on any special moments!! That’s one of the great benefits of having a husband and wife team!!  

The big day! Let's get you married!

We will provide a sneak peek within 24 hours of your special day and the full gallery delivery will be within 4-6 weeks!! Time for you to relive all of your wonderful memories!! 

They're here! Get the tissues ready

the benefits of hiring a husband & wife team

You get the dual appreciation and care that comes from a married couple.
Although capturing weddings for others gives us a lot of insight, having gone through our own wedding (June 2, 2012) allows us to better understand and relate to how our brides and grooms are feeling! We can relate to the excitement, stress, and all the little details involved! We run wedding days exactly how we would want ours to go, and our perspective as a bride and groom help SO MUCH with this! 

We get it!

the benefits of hiring a husband & wife team

There are 2 of us!

Instead of having to book and pay a second shooter (who you typically don’t get to chose), you automatically have two wedding photographers for your entire wedding day! Having two photographers allows you to re- ceive many more photos than one photographer could provide, and it allows us to capture the same moment from totally different angles and perspectives. Win-win! 

the benefits of hiring a husband & wife team

Chad hangs out with the groom, Amanda hangs out with the bride

While it’s totally possible for Amanda to photograph the guys getting ready, they have much more fun and are more comfortable hanging out with Chad, and the girls are more relaxed spending a lot of the day with Amanda! To save time on the wedding day, we can split up in order to divide and conquer! For example, Chad can capture groomsmen portraits while Amanda photographs the bridal details. This is so important in order to make the best use of our sometimes limited time. 

the benefits of hiring a husband & wife team

The Devotion that comes from a married couple

Marriage is a partnership. Encouraging and supporting one another is a huge part of our work. Not only do we each have our own strengths, but we also know each other’s weaknesses and how to serve one another--something that main shooters and second shooters may not have in common. Wedding days often require us to share responsibilities so that we can “be in two places at once.” Strong communication and planning in advance are key to capturing these moments successfully, and we like to think we do this pretty well by now!

Amanda and Chad are truly gifted! We could not have asked for better photographers to capture our special day. My husband is not a big fan of having pictures taken and they managed to loosen him up, and he even admitted to having a good time at our engagement session. We knew after that, that we picked the best and we were so relieved to know that we were going to be comfortable with them on our wedding day. They stayed in touch various times giving us tips and reminders as well as going over a timeline of our wedding day to help things go smoother. They made this experience for us so wonderful and stress free throughout the entire process. We can never thank them enough for the stunning pictures they captured and the memories we will have to look back on that we will truly cherish forever!

Amanda and Chad are AMAZING! From the beginning of the planning process, they were always available to help us. We loved getting to know them through the engagement session, and were wowed by the photos they captured! Before and on our wedding day, they were there through every step. They captured images that were breathtaking. You will not be disappointed if you choose Amanda and Chad to capture these special moments. In addition to all the beautiful pictures, Amanda and Chad become part of your wedding experience. Our family and guests fell in love (just as we did) with their sweetness and the way they made everyone feel at ease. Amanda and Chad will always hold a special place in our hearts as they did not just do their job but they loved us in the process.

Amanda and Chad were an absolute joy to work with. They made the whole process extremely easy, even though I was planning my wedding from the other side of the country and had some odd circumstances! They work with you, making sure you will have the shots you want. My wedding party and I kind of dislike taking pictures, but Amanda and Chad made it so fun and simple. During the reception they worked to get our bride and groom portraits done, without missing our friends and family. Also, their candid photos are the best! We got our complete album within 3 weeks, and sneak peaks throughout that time. I highly recommend Amanda and Chad Photography because they truly care about their couples and will work their hardest to make sure you have beautiful memories of that day.

We had such an amazing experience with Amanda and her husband. They answered every question we had (promptly!) and helped plan our wedding day timeline. The day of we hardly noticed they were there they made our wedding day even more stress-free by adding a third photographer, Katy! Our pictures turned out flawless, they had great ideas for portraits, but the candid shots of our friends and family are my favorite! It helped capture the atmosphere of the entire day!! 
 I cannot say enough great things about them. They ROCK!

During our first interaction throughout the engagement photo session, Amanda and Chad were fun, creative, and understanding of exactly what we wanted and how to capture that emotion in amazing photos from all different angles. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our first session and looked forward everyday to taking even more photos at our upcoming wedding day. We knew that we had made the right decision!
