HELLO

My name is Amber Langerud, I am married to my best friend, a new mother and am passionate about making people feel truly beautiful through photography.

--------------

Your wedding is a very special day, you want to have confidence it is being captured professionally and with a unique style, whether through photo or video. Check out this wedding info and the website to see if my style is right for you.

THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION

First and foremost you should have an engagement session because it’s fun. You get to pamper yourself and dress up and -- here’s the best part -- snuggle and kiss your best friend for a good hour.

Not only are engagement sessions a great time for the two of you, it is a great time for me to get to know you and how you interact with your significant other. Every couple is different in how they interact and pose. Taking the time to have an engagement session with me, gives me a chance to learn all these little details so I will know what poses and angles look best for your bride and groom pictures on wedding day.

Remember couple sessions do not have to be just for engagements, couple sessions are also great to do annually or every other year after your wedding as an “anniversary” shoot, giving you a chance to capture your ongoing love for each other after the wedding day.

YOUR WEDDING DAY

Lets quickly go through how your wedding day coverage will go!
Getting Ready
Think detail shots of your caribou coffee sitting next to a pallet of makeup and curling iron and all your bridesmaids surrounding you as your mom zips up or ties your wedding dress.
Portraits
A carefully curated mix of casual and formal portraits showcasing your love. To help everything go smoothly and quickly, I take charge and guide you through this part of your day.
Ceremony and Reception
This part of the day is all about you and just letting the natural events happen. I stay alert to capture as many of those special moments as possible.
Details
All those details you spent months planning for and putting together deserve to be remembered. I love to take a little time to capture your shoes, flowers, dress, centerpieces etc. If there is anything of extra special meaning, be sure to let me know so I make sure to capture it!
Extras
Beyond the wedding day - consider an album because your day deserves to be printed and shared!

TIPS & TRICKS

1. Create a detailed timeline your wedding day that includes when flowers are set to arrive, when people should arrive, when hair and makeup will get done, etc.
2. Bring food and water for breakfast and lunch. No fainting!
3. Practice walking in your wedding day shoes. If they aren't super comfy or easy to walk around in, have a back up pair.
4. Pack a "wedding day emergency" kit and bring it along with you on your big day. Essentials include some clear nail polish for snags, pain reliever, makeup, travel sewing kit, Band-Aids and tissues.
5. Have your cake and flowers arrive at the latest possible moment (with some buffer time). This helps make sure they stay fresh!
6. Your personal attendant is your BF on your wedding day!
7. Whether you're doing your makeup yourself or having a makeup artist come in, do a trial run.
8. Order a few more wedding invitations than you think you need. Chances are you will need some extras and they are usually cheaper in bulk.
9. Follow up with all your vendors a week before your wedding to make sure everything is in place and ready to go.
10. Expect the unexpected. Sometimes things don't go as planned, and that's OK. At the end of the day you love each other and got married!

EDITING

I go through each delivered image and make necessary adjustments to ensure the images match my signature style, that may include exposure, color temperature, tone curve and the like. I like a bright, clean, slightly warm and crisp image. Occasionally an image will speak to me as the perfect fit for a black and white, in that case you may receive it in black and white rather than color form.

FAQs

I am not a big fan on having my pictures taken, why should I have an engagement session?
Engagement sessions are awesome and fun, but they also help me get to know you so your wedding portraits are more meaningful.


How many outfits should I bring with for the engagement session?
I recommend bringing along 1-2 outfits for you and your fiancé.


How long do engagement sessions last and where do they take place?
Engagement sessions typically last 1-1.5 hours and usually take place at the farm my husband and I own near Audubon, MN.

 

What is a print release? Can I print the pictures from my wedding day?
You receive a print release which gives you the right to print the digital files provided to you after the wedding day for personal use.

I reserve the right to use images from your wedding/engagement shoot on facebook as sneak peeks, on my website, in submissions and occasionally in brochures etc.
