If you've landed at my page, you've probably started your search for someone who is going to document one of the most important days of your life and you may have a lot of questions. That's where I come in!

While there are no shortage of photographers out there, you may be searching for somebody you really click with and can begin to build trust with for such a momentous day. 

I want to learn more about you as a couple and discern what is the most important to you when it comes to getting married. Maybe your wedding is like a giant family reunion and you want pictures to capture everybody having a great time being together again. Or maybe you are looking for a photographer who will catch the sweet, intimate moments that happen throughout the day with your love and let you relive them every time you catch a peek of an image. There just might be a wide variety of moments and feelings you want documented, and that's exactly why I am a photographer.

  1. Initial contact: Fill out my contact form or send me an email at hello@vangachnang.com with some information about what kind of services you’re looking to have photographed. The more details, the better! I’ll check my calendar to see if I’m booked and if not, we’ll take the next step together. I specialize in all-things wedding and engagement related, but I do photograph other things like families and high school Seniors as well. Just ask!

  2. Booking: This is where we chat! If you prefer to meet in person over coffee (and donuts, obviously), I’m down with that. Prefer a phone call? Works for me. I can also get you all the info you need through good old email or even a video chat session! All forms, contracts, and invoices will be sent digitally, so no matter where you are, we’ll be on the exact same page. The basics of my wedding packages are laid out on my pricing page so you can get a feel for a range of services, but I’m always open to making a custom package based on exactly what you need. We’ll go over everything from payment due dates, what images you’ll receive and when, and everything else you have questions about.

    Bonus tip: All wedding packages come with a complementary engagement session! It’s a great chance for me to get to know you better and for you to get comfortable in front of the camera. Win-win!

  3. THE BIG DAY! I’ll be there doing my thing even when you don’t see me. We’ll take some stellar photos of everything important to you and we’ll have a kick-ass time doing it! Some packages include a second photographer which means more angles, more photos, and more memories (but I’m totally confident getting all the best photos alone). I’ll check in with you throughout the day but otherwise, your only job is to relax and have a great time. I’ve got this!

  4. After your day: First thing I do when I get home- upload and back up your images to two hard drives as well as the Cloud. I don’t leave room for anything to go wrong. Those memory cards are glued to me until I’m at home safely backing them up.

  5. Processing and editing: I know that waiting is the hard part but believe me, I put so much time and thought into your photographs to make sure every last one is damn near perfect. I’ll send you sneak peeks along the way so you can share with your loved ones. You’ll receive everything digitally in an online gallery so there’s no chance of losing them in the mail. From there you can download images, share on social media, send the gallery link to friends and family, and even order the highest quality prints out there. You can also browse through my options for some items like photo albums and canvas prints for your absolute favorite photos!

  6. THAT’S IT! Not only is this process streamlined and simple for you, but for me as well! I’m no stranger to photographing important events or parts of life that you don’t want to forget, and I want to build a friendship with you so that you can trust me and communicate exactly what you need from me.
