WHERE...

Does avodah co. document love stories?

By this time, we'll basically be family. Our heart is that we truly get to know you and your story before showing up to document it, because then we get to just focus on the moment and celebrate you! Whether your day is 3 hours or 12, we'll be there capturing the moments you're not even aware are happening! You'll be able to relive these moments with your significant other and loved ones for generations to come (and that's our favorite part).

THREE

Wedding/Elopement Day

This is where your wedding day starts to come to life: you book a venue, send out save-the-dates, say "yes" to the dress. We'll be there every step of the way to make sure your wedding photo/video experience is the best! And it's loaded with freebies: consultation calls/coffee, a complimentary engagement session, questionnaires, guides, follow up/clarity  calls, fun mail days, you name it! We want you to feel served, celebrated, and prepared for your wedding/elopement day with us.

TWO

Planning

So you've looked through our Instagram/Facebook; watched the YouTube video on "How does all this work?" (see below); you've read the reviews; now what? Let's hop on a video call and get to know each other! We'll ask you a million questions since we're obsessed with couples's stories; we'll dig into to your dreams of your wedding day, and then chat through different packages we offer. Once you're ready, we'll get you on the books and start planning your dream day!

Consultation call + Booking

Let's walk through the process with you! We know it can be daunting trying to find the right team to document your day, so here's the run down on what your experience will look like with us. Or click below for a walk through the process!

HOW...

does this all work?

Watch Video

We know planning your wedding/elopement day takes time, energy, effort, and money (check out our planning guide above for a more in depth resource!) And we also know that picking your date and/or venue comes first, and then booking your photographer/videographer usually comes second! We usually book 1-2 years in advance, so the sooner you reach out the better (especially for weekend wedding days). If you're wanting to elope on a weekday in the next few months, you're in good company because we usually have more availability throughout the week! Avodah Co. is currently booking for 2022-2023!

WHEN...

Although Avodah Co. is a team of creatives (photo, video, florals for elopements coming soon!) we were established in 2017 by the lady with a camera here (Iris Elise). We've been serving couples for 5 years and are passionate about celebrating marriages all over the world and documenting love stories. "Work, Worship, Service" is the meaning behind our Hebrew name and is the backbone of all we do! 
 
We support local, national, and global organizations monthly. Your investment in Avodah Co. not only helps us thrive, but also pours into lives in our community and beyond. Check them out here: Soma Downtown (Indy), GirlTrip (Portland), Young Life (Germany) and The Mercy Kids (Nicaragua).

You can view our wedding video portfolio here! We work best as a team and thrive when we get to shoot both photo and video together on wedding/elopement days, however we do offer collections for just photo/just video! When you inquire with us, specify in your form what you're looking for – for photo + video booked together, we'll offer 20% off the total price of your collection choices! 

We take pride in the product we deliver you, and want the quality of it to bring you to tears (happy tears!), so we send you a preview gallery + a teaser video from your day within a week to hold you off on the full gallery and full length video! Your final product will arrive 8-12 weeks after your wedding day and it'll be just like Christmas morning – so worth the wait.

We love + celebrate all different kinds of love stories! The couple that usually books us opts for a more intimate experience with 50 people or less in their backyard or choose to elope with just the two of them, but if you love our work and want an incredible photo/video experience on your wedding day – inquire below! We intentionally take on 2 clients a month because we value true connection with our clients. So feel free to reach out and we'll see if we're the best fit for you and your day!

We invest 40+ hours into your wedding/elopement day including calls, planning, shooting, traveling, editing, and delivery. You are paying for our time, our investment (gear, education, experience), a product that'll last a lifetime, and a thoughtfully curated photo + video experience. We also donate monthly to 4 different organizations/ministries! Check those out under "WHO we are!"
