From the moment you inquire with us, you become a part of the #sasfamily! We take pride in responsiveness and communication. We also believe in providing you with as much information as possible. This is because we want you to make a fully informed decision when selecting your wedding photographer. This dedication continues throughout your entire experience with us.
Our wedding experience is unlike any other. We enjoy shooting couples who are madly in love, have a great sense of style, and are interested in creating memories unique and true to their love story. From fashion forward couples to country chic, we love to spoil our clients from start to finish. Our clients are given a certain sense of peace of mind when working with us. We have developed a seamless, but unique approach to ensuring that photography is the one area of your wedding planning experience that doesn't cause you any stress. Our wedding collections start at $2800 and our average client investment is between $3500-$5500.
Communication tools, our detailed catalog, your personal client portal, imagery, welcome gifts, and albums, we only invest in the best. Over the past 6 years, Cierra has attended multiple wedding expos in search of the highest quality of products to provide to her clients.
Here at Southern Amore' studios, our focus is quality over quantity. As a boutique wedding photographers, we only photograph 26 weddings per year. This allows us to provide the intricate dedication we love to our clients. When you hire us, you become only 1 of 26 who will get to say, they are a part of our annual #sascouple family!
Over the past 6 years, we've realized that there are clients out there who are unique to our style just as much as we are to theirs. So we've developed a few characteristics that we've noticed in all of our past and current brides. If any of these characteristics remind you of yourself, then you are an #sasbride and we would love to meet you!!!
The #sasbride is a dreamer, she has plans of being someone, doing something amazing with her life, and doesn't plan on stopping until she get's there! As women who love to empower other women, we've found that we tend to attract the same in our brides! A dream is only the beginning of the reality you choose to reveal...
The #sasbride is whitty, she has a sense of humor and doesn't take herself too serious. She is all about her business, but loves to laugh and let her hair down.
The #sasbride is kind hearted, she has a big heart and finds joy in giving. She isn't a pushover, but when people speak of her, they speak of her big heart!
The #sasbride is a lover, she's come a long way to find her prince, but she never gave up on love. A hopeless romantic at heart; she not only loves being loved, but loves giving love unconditionally
The #sasbride is a detail lover, she loves and notices details in everything she does. In regards to her wedding, she is planning on having beautiful wedding details and is looking for a photographer to beautifully photograph them...**Shamless plug*** LOL
The #sasbride is trendy, she has a sense of style, whether its country chic, bohemian goddess, natural flare, rustic elegance, or high fashion. She is full of fashion forward ideas and loves to express herself in this way.
The #sasbride is overall a chic woman with a purpose. Don't be fooled, while she is the epitome of fabulous, she has no problem throwing on a pair of boots, flip flops, or jordans when she wants
We consider ourselves to be a boutique wedding vendor. this means that we aim to please by providing high quality products and services. our style is traditional, but high fashion, chic, young, and fresh. Our goal is to capture your big day in the most unique manner while still holding true to tradition. Oh, and we love details!
We book up to 18 months out which is the standard year and half that most take to plan weddings. We are usually 100% booked by March of the current year.
Of course!! We love to travel and love photographing clients wherever they want to take us! Due to the many logistics of traveling, we offer our travel fees per request.
Honestly, we don’t meet a lot of our clients in person until the engagement session. However, we do require at least a phone consultation prior to all bookings. We want to be sure that we are the best fit for you.
We get this question often and feel horrible when we say, NO. At this time, our studio specializes in photography only, but we work with some amazing creatives who do. We provide our clients with a detailed list of referrals to aid them in their wedding planning journey. Referrals are shared during our client's on-boarding process.
We love to travel and would be honored to join you wherever you decide to capture your engagements. All destination sessions and weddings are quoted on a per basis analysis.
Of course!! We love to photograph couples in love and we understand the phases of the wedding planning journey. You are not required to have your wedding reserved to book an engagement session. In retrospect, their are investment benefits to booking your wedding and engagements at the same time.
Our contracts suggest up to 6-9 weeks due to the detailed editing we do. No worries though, we blog and post sneakpeaks the first Wednesday after your wedding to hold you over until the final images are complete.
Our standard coverage consist of a lead photographer and an assistant photographer. Cierra and Chelcie have been photographing weddings together for 6 years. They have a well designed system that allows them to capture every single moment worth preserving. A third photographer can be added by request.
Depending on the amount of hours reserved, we usually deliver 100-150 fully edited images per hour captured. Some weddings have more or less depending on the scope of the event.
We wish we could hold everyone's date when we get asked this question, but unfortunately, we can't. Our calendar fills up pretty fast and to be fair, we can only add a date to our calendar when the deposit and contract are complete. We do not take partial deposits for bookings.
We use photoshop to enhance color, tones, and skin smoothing, but we do not alter body parts. In regards to tattoo removal for brides, there is a per image charge for this request. We usually recommend tattoo covering for the wedding day if this is a concern for the bride.
