signature wedding photography coverage includes

Engagement Session

Being engaged is such a fun and exciting season of your life. You have found the one whom your soul loves; the one with whom you want to build a life and a family, and you’re ready to begin planning a shared future and a meaningful beginning to married life. It’s a time to celebrate and remember, and I am so excited to be a part of it! 

I include complimentary engagement sessions in all of my photography collections, because they help you develop a deeper level of comfort and trust with me. All complimentary sessions take place at beautiful, historic Nash Farm in Hampton, GA. You are not required to have an engagement session if you do not want to, but because it is a complimentary gift it cannot be exchanged for another product or service.


Wedding Photography

Signature coverage includes wedding day photography by Lauren Wright Payne and an assistant photographer. Lauren is responsible for providing documentary coverage throughout the day and for arranging all posed photographs of the couple, bridal party, and family. The assistant photographer provides complimentary coverage by photographing alongside Lauren during the portrait time, ceremony, and reception.


Fine Art Matted Prints

Lauren will curate a selection of photographs from your wedding that will be printed on fine art watercolor paper and framed in an heirloom quality archival mat. These fine art matted prints are beautiful to display on their own, or you can slip them into a standard 8x10" frame to display on a wall. 

Clients who invest in 8+ hours of wedding day coverage will also receive a fine art linen keepsake box to house your matted prints. 


Digital Files

Every photograph that you receive is adjusted for white balance, exposure, contrast, clarity, and saturation, making it ready to print. Your edited, print-ready digital files will be displayed in an online gallery where you can view, share, and download them. I include a personal use release along with your digital files so that you can have prints made through any lab that you would like. 

Signature coverage is available for $400/hr
