INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
As a film shooter, I have different films depending on the lighting and situation. I often use true black and white film, and I love to use sepia toned images while shooting outside. The warmness of the black and white lends itself to skin tones so well. One of a kind, fine art prints and wax pieces are also available for your favorite wedding images.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We have experience with all lighting situations!
Is your media preference film or digital?
We use film almost exclusively, and are very confident in using digital for certain situations. Film has richness and a depth that is much broader than digital. It really lends itself well to weddings? All of your negatives are scanned so you have high resolution digital copies of all images. A mixture of color film, and true black and white films are used for a fine art feel which really cannot be emulated with digital photography?
How many photographers do you work with?
All wedding packages include both me and my assistant/second shooter. She will sometimes second shoot if I do not need her help loading cameras or holding a reflector. If you would like a full second shooter, I have photographers whom I have trained and would be happy to photograph your wedding with me?
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, of course! I have never missed an event, but I have several amazing photographers who would be willing to step in if some unforeseeable act of god occurred.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No. I will only photograph one wedding per day?
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I have 4 film cameras, and 2 digital cameras, numerous lenses, flashes, a video light, extra memory cards, tripod, reflector, and batteries? Although I would not need all of this equipment, it is always good to have extra in case something malfunctions.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes? see the previous question.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Most packages are custom made and are based on full day coverage. If you would like to inquire about a smaller package, just call me, and I will be happy to try and accommodate your wedding wishes.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, overtime rates are $450/hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We only take a small break to eat dinner, usually while you and your guests are eating your main course.
Do you charge for travel?
It depends on your destination. Travel expenses are considered extra? but if your wedding is within 150 mile radius, there are no additional costs for traveling. We have traveled throughout the United States for weddings, and really love destination jobs. I would be happy to make a quote for you if you are getting married out of Southern California.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
The normal turn around time for you to receive your box of images is about 3 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Most packages include a full set of photographic prints for you to keep, and a high resolution disc of all of your images. I can also put your images online for friends and family to view and purchase if you would like.

Kirsten is amazing in every way possible!! Not only is she one of the best photographer's in the business but she is also a wonderful person as well. She is genuine, warm, and easy going.

She was great about customizing a package that fit within our budget. Easy to reach via email or phone. She has a wonderful artistic eye but also captured our standard group/family photos beautifully as well. She was great about getting at least one shot of all our guests through out the evening.

I loved that she shot with both black and white and color and with several types of cameras. Also, she is one of the few photographers out there that shoots with both film and digital and this makes a huge difference. There is a special quality to film pictures that is truly exceptional--and you cannot get it with a digital camera.

But the best part was that she took gorgeous photos that captured our day so beautifully. I have shown them to a bunch of people and they all independently commented that they look like they belong in a magazine.

I cannot say enough good things about Kirsten or her photography. She is worth every penny you will spend!
