Questions? Keep scrolling.
Here’s where we dig into some nitty gritty! If you’re the kind of person that likes to get as much info as you can before meeting in person then let’s get to it. HOWEVER…please, remember that none of this info is my way or the highway. I’m a people person first and foremost, so use these questions as guidelines to my services. When we meet in person or online, we can hammer out the details, okay?
When you say you are journalistic, does that mean that you don’t do ANY posed photos? Heck no, posed photos are part of the day too! When I say journalistic that means I aim to tell the entire story of the day and part of that is everyone you love all shined up and looking their best in a family portrait. However, the people who hire me don’t tend to want hours and hours of that. They want them done, quick and easy so they can get on to the party. We’ll go over a detailed timeline before your wedding to make sure we get those family photos done lickety-split. (Do the kids say lickety-split anymore? Doesn’t matter because I do!)
Do you have an assistant? Well, the name is Kristin+Camera so that should clue you into the fact that it’s normally just me. My clients don’t like the feeling of a paparazzi-like entourage following them all day. However, there are times that I get some big ole’ Texas wedding with lots of guests and multiple locations and then I will bring an assistant to help wrangle gear and help with light photography duties. When we talk about your day, we can determine if a second body is necessary.
How many photos will you take? I have no idea. This is the same answer I give people when they ask me how many megapixels my camera is. I’m a visual storyteller, not a gear head or a bean counter and I take as many photos as I need to tell the story of the day. I can tell you that most of my clients get somewhere between 600-800 final photos delivered, that seems to be my sweet spot.
How long until I see my photos?I’ll whet your whistle with a sneak peek within 48 hours, and your final images will be delivered 4-6 weeks after your wedding depending on my workload. I retouch every single STINKING image (I’ve tried not to, can’t do it) so what you get will be a fully curated, gorgeous set of photos that you can download immediately and print out to your heart’s desire.
What happens if you are sick on my wedding day? There’s not much that would keep me from a wedding day. I’ve kicked more sickness to the curb than I care to speak of, and it would take a major Act of God to keep me away from being at your wedding. That being said, and as much as I hate to admit it, I am human. If I absolutely, positively could not be at your wedding day because I'm being bodily restrained in a hospital bed I have a wide network of full-time professional photographers who would step up to the plate to help, as I would for them if the tables were turned.
I see you offer albums. Are they expensive? Let’s put it this way. Your daily dishes from Target probably aren’t expensive, but the china you registered for is. You invested in the china because you knew it was special and would be something you pass down to future generations. The same goes for wedding albums. They are one of a kind, AMAZING legacies that you can pass down to your children and their children. In a world where digital is king, these books will be tactile, treasured books that you can hold and love. The album process is simple and straightforward, I do all the heavy lifting. Let’s chat more about how that happens in person.
How long have you been photographing weddings? Since the dawn of time, also known as the days where we shot film. I’m not going to tell you exactly when that was, but I’ll let you guess at the math. I’ve shot over 300 weddings, and I’ve pretty much seen it all. Let’s just say that at one of my weddings when a street gang showed up to salsa dance with a wedding band I was the only who was not surprised.
I love your work! How do we hire you? I love your style! Let’s make beautiful photos together! Just get in touch, and we’ll get the ball rolling on how to make this thing happen.
