Remember Your Wedding Well
Pure bliss and complete joy is what we hope to cultivate and showcase in the images from your wedding day. After all, this day happens once and you deserve to remember it well. So, thank you for considering us for your photography team. We’re excited about the possibility of walking alongside you throughout the next several months.
Lauren and Michael are getting married among 200 of their closest friends and family in the spring of 2022. The two will be getting married on the coast of Fairhope, Alabama where Lauren will get to turn her dream of a beach wedding into a reality! Lauren and Michael’s ceremony will take place in a beautiful, small Catholic chapel surrounded by large oak trees; followed by a reception at the Grand Hotel to celebrate with all their loved ones!
Lauren, I heard you say that you want to be proud to showcase your wedding photos for years to come. You know you want the wedding photos to be timeless, traditional and classic. You have looked into enough photographers to know that you do not want anything “trendy”. Instead, you want images that are light, airy and true to color.
Looking back on the photographs, while flipping through an album with your kids on your 10th wedding anniversary, you know you want the images to:
- Showcase traditional portraits, highlighting the beautiful Catholic chapel.
- Capture the candidly fun and lighthearted moments throughout the day.
- Feel timeless and natural.
You know that you do not want your photographer to turn to you on the wedding day and ask who you’d like pictures with. It is important to have these specs finalized ahead of time so you and Michael can relax and enjoy your day with your family and friends. I am confident that our team will ‘wow’ you in all things surrounding the preparation that you’ve already identified you need. You want a reliable experience from your vendors – every step of the way. Follow-through is our speciality. You do not have to worry about our team ‘ghosting’ you leading up to your wedding. You know how important it is to be on the same page with your photographer before the wedding, including having a photography with a rain plan in place.
Unfortunately, you’ve had experiences with photographers that are less than stellar and dismissive. We can ensure both you, Michael and your families will feel confident and well-prepared on the wedding day by guiding you through proper timeline and shot list planning ahead of time. You understand the importance of planning, and what is left to chance without it. Beyond connecting on a personal level, we will ensure your confidence by providing you with expert care and leading you every step of the way.
You want to be 100% confident that you’re using a photographer who cares as much about the entire process as they do about the outcome.
John Cain Photography truly cared to capture what was important to me and made sure to capture the day’s beauty as well as the memorable moments that I will now always be able to cherish.

The only choice
John Cain and his team are hands down the only choice. We were treated so well during the planning process, through our wedding weekend and beyond. We truly connected with the team on much more than a professional level. Their work is at the highest level possible. The best part, though, is not only the most beautiful photographs - but the warm, helpful, and down to earth manner his team works. Hard to find that level of service and support these days. Xoxo

The Value of...
We propose a number of hours of coverage based on a variety of factors, including timeline, venue, getting ready, size of the wedding party, guest count, celebration send-off, and other criteria. Based on the information you’ve provided, we feel anything less than 8 hours would put pressure on your experience – making it more difficult to feel at ease throughout the day.
You’re working hard on planning every detail of the event, and every touch should be recorded for you to look back on for years to come. An additional photographer will allow us more opportunity to capture those details during the short window between set-up ending and your guests arriving. It will also allow one photographer to capture details while the other focuses on taking pictures of you and your guests.
A bridal portrait session offers an opportunity to see the dress, hair style, accessories and make up choices come together – so you can relax on the wedding day knowing that all of the selections have been perfected beautifully. Bridal portraits can certainly be added on later, a la carte.
For any bride or groom who expresses concern about feeling natural in front of the camera, 45 minutes to an hour and a half together, in a more comfortable environment, before the wedding day will allow them to feel (and look) more natural come wedding day. The session itself creates a muscle-memory for posing that makes the wedding day go faster and feel like a piece of cake!
Time can be reserved the week or weekend of your wedding to capture all of your day-of details (invitations, rings, shoes, etc…) so that we don’t miss any important getting ready moments by capturing details outside the room. This allows our total focus to be on you and the ones you love most, and gives us the dedicated time to have acute attention to each and every detail. If desired, this service can be added at $750/hour.
You’ll receive unparalleled services before, during, and after the wedding day. We prepare for success by learning about your preferences and priorities early on, as well as walking through every part of the day in advance.
Your wedding experience is more than one day, and we want you to remember it well.
