Who We Are: Illuminated Moments. IM. As founder, owner, and loudest person on the block Kara, myself, is the photographer. My assistant follows me around picking up the things I forgot, acting as a tree, and pretending to laugh at my jokes. James... James gives me money... he is my husband and he takes suprisingly amazing pictures. :D To learn more about each of us check out our website: http://illuminatedmoments.com We are not a polygamist couple. Just thought I would clear that up before you thought it. ;) Phoenix is the hottest place on the planet, that is why we no longer live there. We wanted to know what hell was like... now we know and now we go to church. Any excuse to leave the heat was a good one but destination weddings are the best. Feel especially free to hire us if you are getting married in Rome. We feel our photography speaks for itself. So, the questions remains: when can we expect to hear from you?

Why our brides choose us:
1. Well, I was just informed that we "pure awesome".
2. We are not afraid to get dirty, climb trees or roll in the mud to get the photo we want.
3. I have a super incredible art director with a photo shoot utility belt! That's Anita! :D
4. I might be a little bit crazy!
5. I will never tell you to say "cheese!"

Photography

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
No
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Most definitely. From mid-day to late evening, noon weddings and night weddings, indoor and out, I have done most everything. 
 
 We also bring our one lightings and lighting equipment so we are prepared for time issues, late grandmothers, and anything mother nature has up her sleeve.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital. Film is cool too but I shoot digital.
How many photographers do you work with?
There are four of us here. I am the photographer but the other three are learning fast, mostly they just make sure I look good.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Unless I die, or am struck by lighting, or some other act of God, yes.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never more than one event a day, very rarely more than two events per month.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Any of the three others I work with would take over if I die (really that is about the only thing that would prevent me from showing up) they would be there themselves and then would start down the list of backup photographers to call.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
2 -Nikon D700 bodies, f/2.8 70-200mm lens, various prime lenses, SB600 speed light, Alien Bees strobe lights, reflectors, an assistant(s)/second shooter, a few pocket wizards, etc. etc. 
 
 I seriously doubt this question is interesting to most of you but if you want a detailed list of what is in my bag just email me. :D 
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Most definitely.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Full day. Hourly is dumb. Dumb. Ask me why sometime.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do require a meal break, we really like food and after seven hours of shooting food is appreciated that much more, but we only require the client to provide it if they are not happy with us leaving the venue.
Do you charge for travel?
Depends, where do you want to take me? 
 
 We travel for free throughout Utah and Arizona. And then we do charge accordingly for travel.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
4-8 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online proofing as jpegs.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The online album is up for 275 days.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, but you can always purchase the copyrights. :)
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Absolutely! We take great photos it would be sad if we couldn't share them. BUT, if you don't want us to we can handle that as well.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Absolutely, at proofs.illuminatedmoments.com
What kind of albums do you offer?
Lots. Email me and I will send you a list.
When will the client get the final album?
3-5 weeks after it is ordered.

Kara is super woman!! Not only did she find a way to do our formal pictures when she was so pregnant she was about to pop, but she took the most beautiful photo I've ever had. Even my husband, who hates photos of himself absolutely loved how these turned out. They are magazine worthy and its not just because my husband and I are so dashing! She took us to the perfect spot and when it started drizzling on us, instead of calling it quits early she used it and created this beautiful fairytale like backdrop for us! Everyone just can't stop commenting on how beautiful our photos are. Kara is an amazingly talented photographer, who is good at putting you at ease and helping you loosen up. She is so flexible and laid back that she takes away from your stress. She is worth every penny and more.

Kara is wonderful! She took all of our photos (engagements, formals, wedding) and she made our invitations and thank you cards. She knows what you want when you can't even envision it. She is INCREDIBLE! When you are high maintenance and demanding (bridezilla mode) and so stressed she just makes everything so much easier. I never felt worried about our pictures, just excited to see them.
Plus, you have to look at her pictures that she
has taken. She is really good at capturing people in their natural, comfortable, fun element so it never felt uncomfortable when we had our photos taken. I can't express enough how pleased I am with Illuminated Moments and all of Kara's talented, hard work.

Kara was wonderful! She made me feel so beautiful on my special day. She made me laugh and got all of the photos I wanted. Not only was she wonderful, but the photos were perfect! Clean and clear. It is quality that you pay for with Kara. I also had MANY photos to choose from... so many, it was hard to pick just one to put in our living room!! I would and do recommend her to everyone! :)

Kara is absolutely amazing! Her work is stunning and she captured my wedding day perfectly and now I have beautiful visual memories to last a life time. Kara was able to shoot my wedding on short notice, was incredibly professional and prepared and her work was as perfectly artistic as I could have imagined and hoped for. Kara is my favorite wedding photographer and has shot my sister's and work friend's weddings in addition to my own. I highly recommend Kara if you are looking for amazing, high quality photos from a fun, energetic and creative professional.

Kara and Anita were wonderful from day 1! They put me at ease in every shoot we did and literally captured moments in our engagement photos and wedding to help me constantly remember it for the rest of my life. That really helped considering we didn't have a videographer. Great, great deals if you are ever looking for professional and creative photographers.
Love them!

Illuminated Moments is seriously the best service in photography I have ever had. Kara made my husband feel so comfortable and we knew from our engagement session with her that she HAD to do our wedding pictures and any pictures after that. Her ability to capture personalities and somehow make you look good is astonishing. For a interracial couple we wanted a photographer who could capture extremes in skin color and not make one look ghostly versus super dark. She captured and continues to capture us perfectly every time we book with her. I wouldn't hesitate with recommending Illuminated Moments to anyone. If you want quality with a great experience as well as great pricing they are the ones to go to.

Kara and her staff were very good at making sure you got Fun and interesting pictures. We wanted something more than the "standard" posed pictures (Particularly for Engagement Photos) and she delivered! The Illuminated Moments crew like to get to know you on both a Professional point of view but also a personal one to make sure they understand more of WHO you are and capture that in your photos. They love to have fun, and they will make you laugh, you will enjoy your time around them. I Promise you'll Love your pictures, and they meet any of your needs/desires possible.
