In the movie "Anna and the King" Prince Chulalongkorn reflects, "It's surprising how small a part of life is taken up by meaningful moments; most often they're over before they start." A wedding day is like that; sometimes it seems it's over in the blink of an eye. When a father walks his daughter down the aisle and thinks back on the last 25 years or so, it seems that way again - the blink of an eye. It's those moments we love to capture, because we know how much they mean, how important they are, and how quickly life changes.

We have been lifelong photographers, and have had the good fortune to photograph in some of the most beautiful places in the world. In 2004, when life circumstances returned us to our home town to care for aging moms, we turned our passion into our business. And while we love to photograph all kinds of subjects, from nuptials to nature, it's weddings that capture our imagination. After thirty years of marriage ourselves, we love the feel of the wedding day and the emotion it offers.

Fashion Journalism

We are husband and wife, photographing together with different but complimentary shooting techniques. We focus on capturing each moment in a style of photography we call Fashion Journalism, a blend of spontaneity and fashion, of photo-journalism and classic presentation. Each picture we deliver as a designer image is not simply captured in the camera, but personally interpreted and presented in a manner that will bring out your true nature. We want your images to be the kind that could grace the cover of any bridal or fashion magazine.

Count On Us

It's not unusual for us to arrive before your wedding day, and to attend your rehearsal. We want to know the details of your ceremony. We want to meet your family and your bridal party and know them by name. Your wedding is more than a sacred ceremony; it's a family reunion and a celebration with friends. We want to capture every nuance of every smile, every laugh with friends about the old times, every tear when you look into the eyes of your parents or your grandparents.

Who We Are

We like to say we are a husband and wife imaging team specializing in meaningful moments. Three quarters of our business is made up of weddings, which have always been our first love. We've been named "Best Event Photographer in Colorado" three times by the International Special Events Society, and have received the same honor from the National Association of Catering and Events; we've been awarded "Best Wedding Album" in the eight-state southwest region of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA); have received multiple "Accolades of Excellence" from the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International; The Knot selected one of our images as the "Most Iconic Colorado Photograph" and it has anchored The Knot Colorado's home page from 2010 to 2014; and recently we were one of ten wedding finalists worldwide for the international Grand Imaging Award, the highest honor in wedding photography awarded by the Professional Photographers of America.

Betty Kay and I are honored to be among those photographers who win prestigious awards. But we would be even more honored to have the opportunity to share your special day and capture your priceless memories.

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We preselect 150-180 of the best images on your wedding day, and give these our utmost attention and artistic treatment. This includes retouching, editing and artistic rendering as appropriate, and placement in to a special gallery we call "Designer Images."
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Every wedding has its own challenges, and lighting is an important one. We typically attend the rehearsal, not just to meet the bridal party and family, but to evaluate the venue, the lighting and the logistics of creative the most beautiful images possible. We use everything from natural light (our preference when it makes sense) to studio strobes to video light, adapting each to the situation of your venue, your wedding and your style.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We shoot Canon digital SLRs, we each carry two cameras with lenses of different focal lengths and specifications, and we often shoot a fifth camera with a wireless remote to get rooftop or balcony shots that give a unique perspective to an event.
How many photographers do you work with?
There are always two of us, Kevin and Betty Kay, who are the principal photographers. Occasionally we may call on the assistance of an assistant or a third photographer when the situation warrants.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
We not only guarantee our presence at the event, we often attend the rehearsal. And in cases where we have not shot at the venue previously, we will typically arrange a separate visit beforehand to evaluate the venue and the opportunities (and challenges) it presents.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We generally shoot one wedding per weekend, and if possible attend the ceremony rehearsal the day prior.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
There are two of us, which reduced the chance that we will both be absent. Beyond that, we know a myriad of outstanding photographers through our activities in professional associations such as the Professional Photographers of America, Wedding and Portrait Photographers International, and the Digital Wedding Forum. It should be said that in the last six years we have never failed to show up for an event. We have, however, filled in as substitutes for some of our professional colleagues when they have been incapacitated or in need.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We bring far more than we typically use. Five to six professional SLR bodies; eight to ten professional lenses; professional on-camera flash units; battery-powered studio strobes; AC-powered studio strobes; video light, reflectors, tripods; miscellaneous transmitters and receivers. Most of this equipment you will never see, as we arrange to keep it out of sight until or unless needed. But it's imperative for us to be prepared for every lighting and photographic challenge, and to have sufficient backup in the event of equipment failure.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
See above.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We charge a flat fee for eight hours of wedding day coverage. For longer bookings, we charge an hourly fee after eight hours.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
We charge $400 per hour for two photographers, beyond the time specified in the wedding contract.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Our contract requires a meal for bookings of over four hours in length. Since there are two of us, we generally take turns eating, so as not to miss any important moments.
Do you charge for travel?
We don’t have any travel charges for weddings less than 50 miles from the Denver-Colorado Springs corridor, as calculated by Google Maps (our “no-charge” zone). For weddings 50–150 miles away we still don’t charge mileage, but we ask for two nights lodging at the venue where your reception will be held. For destination weddings requiring air transportation, we charge air fare (business class, plus any necessary baggage allowances to transport our camera equipment), ground transportation and overnight lodging for two nights (or the time necessary to attend your rehearsal and return the day after your wedding). We do not charge for meals. Depending on the location, there may be fees or expenses related to foreign visas, work permits, etc. and we will pass on these charges. Our rate for wedding photo coverage is the same, regardless of the distance.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Generally within four weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We post proofs online in two galleries. "Designer Images" are our pre-selections as the best of the day, and those to which we have given special attention. They are posted in a gallery called, appropriately, "Designer Images." The rest, which have all been individually reviewed and adjusted for perfect color and lighting, are placed in a gallery called "All the Rest."
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Proofs are generally posted for at least six months following the wedding.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We provide digital images on disk. These are provided with a formal copyright release, and that copyright release is also reproduced as a jpg image on the disk itself, to avoid any questions by any photo processing lab as to your right in perpetuity to reproduce the images for your personal use.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Our wedding contract has language that allows this. Many of our images have been published on magazine covers, or as featured photographs in style magazines. Nevertheless our clients' privacy is paramount and we will not publish, blog, or use photos on our website if our client has an objection.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, we provide digital images together with a copyright release.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, the "Designer" and "All the Rest" galleries are available for online viewing, and prints can be purchased from these galleries by friends and family.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We have selected what we consider to be the best of album manufacturers worldwide. While the design and layout is always our own, the final production is handled by either one of two Italian companies (one located on the Adriatic coast of Italy and one in the Dolomite Alps), or one of two American companies (in New York and Los Angeles respectively). We do not outsource our image preparation or finishing, or our design work. We were recently awarded "Best Wedding Album" by the Southwest Professional Photographers Association (an region including Colorado, Texas, six other US states and Mexico).
When will the client get the final album?
When we post images online, we ask the client to select a limited number of favorites, "must-haves" for the artbook. Using these as a basis, we create an layout that tells the story of the day. Once we have the client's selections to begin, our design time is about four to six weeks, at which time we post the layout online. Once the layout is approved, we send the files to the manufacturer, and production can take an additional eight to ten weeks. If there are no delays, we generally have the artbook in our clients' hands within four to five months after the wedding.

Betty Kay and Kevin were so wonderful to work with. They made our night so very memorable. From the engagement photos, to the rehearsal, to the actual wedding day coverage, it seemed they were one of our dear friends in the wedding party! They captured EVERY moment possible and then some! They were easy to work with, and we could tell they know what they are doing. We relied on them for more than just being our photography. We almost want to do it all over again just to have our pictures taken! Betty Kay and Kevin were the best to work with and seriously made my day as the bride so much smoother! Thank you so much Allee Photography!

Kevin and Betty Kay were very professional, flexible, and above all made us look GREAT while allowing us to be ourselves! Both the engagement and wedding day photoshoots were fun and comfortable. Prior to selecting Allee, we had a friend who does professional photography in NYC and Chicago compare several photographers' work and rates. She was impressed by what she saw, and we have been very happy with the results! We highly recommend that you meet with Kevin and Betty Kay and discuss your vision-- they can make it come true. : )

Allee Photography is Amazing! Because of their stellar reputation in the industry and my professional interactions with them at the upscale venue I worked for....I could not trust my wedding to an unknown destination wedding photographer. So we hired Betty and Kevin to fly to Puerto Rico and capture our dream wedding. And they did just that! Amazing photos in hot and humid tropical weather! I believe Allee Photography should be contracted internationally! We will be using their services for future special events with our family and friends!

Allee photographed our wedding last August and we could not be happier with our decision. We met Kevin and Betty Kay at a bridal festival and instantly fell in love with their work... and them! Choosing them as our photographers was the easiest decision we made. But the service we received from them was far above what either of us expected. They were in contact with us from the day we booked them up until the wedding. They made sure they knew exactly what we wanted out of them so the day of the wedding we didn't have to worry about a thing. They captured every moment while maintaining professionalism and composure. Our guests even loved them! We were speechless when we saw our photos for the first time. They could not have turned out better! We were beyond pleased with everything we received from them. Thank you Allee for making our experience so wonderful!!!

Out of all of the vendors we hired for our wedding, we were the most pleased and impressed with Allee Photography. They were extremely professional and did an excellent job at capturing every single important moment throughout the day. Their work is artistic and 'modern romantic' which gives it just a little extra personality. They quickly learn your expectations and style to adapt to your taste. Our album is fantastic. I've shown it to many people and they are amazed at the quality. I have recommended them in the past and I will continue to recommend them to anyone.
