My first email will include a link to schedule a phone call or Zoom meeting.
Signed online contract with 30% retainer.
Throughout the time leading up to the wedding I love sharing my experience and knowledge of timeline planning. We will have a call or Zoom 60-90 days before the wedding to go over your timeline. We will finalize the timeline 30 days before the wedding.
I'll help you plan an engagement session that fits your style and personality!
We'll be there every step of the way with multiple shooters to make sure the moments that matter are caught.
“Merinda and her Sweet Focus were truly phenomenal. Several weeks before my wedding, Merinda gave me a call to go over the wedding schedule in detail; I really appreciated her professionalism, organization, and attention to detail that contributed greatly to making my wedding day flawless.
“Merinda helped our day run smoothly by keeping us on a schedule, which was difficult because of the large wedding party. Her assistant also went above and beyond from taking photos to fixing my veil and holding my bouquet when needed. Hands down she was the right choice for me and she would be for you too!”
“A Sweet Focus helped document our special day and created photo memories that will last a lifetime! I was not sure of the exact places to take wedding day pictures, but she was full of ideas and willing to call places even to try and reserve spots for photos. I was vague with my ideas and descriptions of spots to go for photos, and she helped make my ideas a reality! Last night, we received the link to our organized wedding gallery and loved the photos!! Even though it will be SO DIFFICULT to choose which photos from the MANY that we love to print for our album and hang in our home, we cannot wait to get them printed!”
She was just wonderful. Additionally, her online platform for sharing information and photos was super easy to use and helpful for viewing and downloading. On the day of, she was organized and made sure she got all the family and friends shots we requested.
Photos: 6-8 weeks is the turnaround time according to the contract. However, I normally deliver a wedding gallery in 4-5 weeks. Video: 8-10 weeks

That depends on restrictions and weather. In some cases of high winds or rain I have done drone footage on a separate day. I also hold my 107 drone pilots license.

It depends! I'm always up for an adventure! Well almost, Canada makes it very difficult for a US Citizen to work in their country.
