Lemonade Photography for @offbeatbride

I'm Jill, the owner and lead photographer at Lemonade Photography in Port Orchard, Wash. I won't bore you with my long-winded philosophy of photography (although it is pretty eloquent, so you're missing out there). Instead I'm going to let you in on the three pledges I make to each and every Lemonade Photography customer:

  1. Your wedding photos won't cost more than your honeymoon. A lot of photographers charge an outrageous amount of money for their wedding packages, and I get why they do it — it's not easy to make a living in this business, and if you have the reputation to back up a fat price tag, why not charge every cent you can? Not here. I truly believe that couples on a budget should have stunning images of their wedding day — for less than the cost of their honeymoon. My packages are reasonable, and I'm always willing to work with your budget to give you the photo coverage you need without any extra stuff you don't.
  2. You'll have a great time. No matter how strongly you commit to having a relaxing, laid-back wedding, it probably won't happen exactly the way you expect. You're the center of attention on one of the most important days of your life, so it's natural to feel a little stress. I promise that even in the middle of a whirlwind of last-minute decorating, forgotten vows, melted cakes and a hundred people who want your attention, I will take you away for a fun, calm, enjoyable session with just the two of you, me, and my camera. We might even have a few laughs. Fabulous photos are important — but for me, it's just as important that you have a good time getting them.
  3. But your photos will be fabulous. I spend time preparing for every wedding, getting to know the couple and planning locations and poses that reflect your personality and your wedding style. Every couple and every wedding is different — and I want your photos to convey the unique feeling of your day. I'll cover your ceremony from every possible angle to capture your joy and tears, and wander through your reception looking for special moments between you and your family, your guests and each other. After the wedding, I'll spend hours processing your photos, carefully choosing the best images and editing them to my high standard of perfection. You'll get a large quantity of digital images and the freedom to print them wherever and however you like.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Every wedding is distinct and special — and offbeat weddings are the best of all! You put your soul into planning your wedding, and I do my best to capture those things that are uniquely you in your wedding images. I won’t force you into traditional poses if you don’t want them; I’m open to anything you want to try. The more unusual your idea, the more fun I’ll have. I know first-hand what it’s like to pour more heart than money into a wedding, and I promise you that I’ll put as much heart into creating the perfect images to help you remember the day forever.

"Words cannot describe how happy we are with our photos. I think you captured every special moment there was to capture and I can honestly say every picture you took was beautiful. I can’t even pick a favorite!" — Christina Conley
