Step 1: Contact Us
The first step in telling your wedding story is to contact us. You can call, email or fill out our contact form. Talking on the phone is best: because our schedule fills so quickly, we can’t guarantee anything over email. We are generally booked 6-9 months in advance. The office number is – and please, leave a message as we may be in a session or on the other line. Texting is ok, too! During that call, we’ll talk about your wedding vision and photographic needs; Locations, times and details. We want you to feel comfortable working with us and that initial phone call is the most important part of the process.Still not sure?

Step 2: Reserving Your Wedding Date
The GSquared Team specializes in Weddings for couples who wander off the beaten path. We work in Washington State, Oregon, California, Nebraska, Hawaii, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Idaho and Montana. Our first step in reserving your wedding date is scheduling an in-person, over the phone or even Skype consultation. There is no charge for this meeting, and it’s a necessary step in ensuring you’re choosing the best photographer for your day. During this consultation, we’ll talk about the ideas for your day, go over coverage options, and mostly chat about your love story (and how the question was popped). If you decide to book your coverage with us, a nominal retainer will be due to secure your date. Want to see what it looks like? CLICK HERE.
Step 3: Planning Your Investment … and what comes next.
Most of our clients can plan on spending between $2500 and $4500 on their wedding coverage. Some spend less, and some spend more depending on their needs. We offer a flexible pricing structure with a monthly payment plan so that you can get everything you want. We go over a questionnaire about your day and your plans, and talk through our contract. Plus, all of our wedding coverage options include an Engagement Session, so we will set up that time and create a plan. Once the consult is over, we’ll send you any additional information and a link to the private bridal viewing site.
Step 4: Your Wedding Day (and other important days, too!)
As a part of our coverage, we’ll help you create your timelines, give you tips on vendors, help prepare you for the things to come on your wedding day, or we can even do a venue walk-through, and create a plan for your photography. This will help us learn the light in your location, and find the best spots for your photographs. The day of your wedding, we’ll show up just before our scheduled start time, and start working. One thing to note: we don’t photograph during your reception dinner, we know no one wants photos of them eating!
Step 5: Image Presentation and Delivery
Sneak peeks go online (unless requested otherwise) within 24-72 hours. 8-12 weeks after your wedding, you’ll have your Image Presentation via a sharing site link. At this time, you’ll also receive your digital download link if it’s included in your package. From there, you’ll order professional prints if you choose, or the images for your album (if that’s in your package). Prints and print collections are delivered 8-10 weeks after delivery of the sharing site (longer during busy season), and albums approximately 12-16 weeks after final proof approval. USBs are delivered approximately 16 weeks following the wedding date.
