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, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes, using Lightroom and Photoshop I create a handful of Signature Edits. These are generally the photos that are printed as wall art and used in albums.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, we are very comfortable in most any lighting situation. Our camera of choice is a Nikon D4 and it has very good low light capabilities.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I started shooting with film over 20 years ago and couldnt help the move to digital with its endless creative freedom
How many photographers do you work with?
My wife and a small hand full of second shooters around the Flathead Valley
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, unless Im deathly ill or hit by a train I'll be there.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
NEVER in the same day and very rarely in the same weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I dont have a dedicated replacement photographer but have great relationships with several other pros in the Glacier / Flathead area that I can call if ever needed.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
My main setup is a Nikon D4 with 2 fast Nikkor prime lenses that I love dearly and a fast 70-200 2.8 Nikkor Zoom. I also bring a few flashes, light stands and light modifiers: umbrellas and softboxes. I probably bring along more gear than the average wedding photographer. Most of it may stay in the car but I just never know when I might need just the right tool.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
YES, without fail I have a Nikon D700 that I use as a backup body.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Our packages are based on hours and can be customized to suite the couples needs for the day.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, of course. $225.00 per additional hour
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I bring protein bars to snack on during slow moments and wont take a meal break unless its offered by the client.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes if the site is more than an hour from my home.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
I post a gallery of my 20 favorite photos from the event within 48 hours as a sneak peek. The remaining photos are usually ready in about 2 weeks but never more than 4 weeks. It depends a lot on the time of year and if it is at the height of the wedding season in Glacier.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
In studio presentation or an on line gallery for out of the area couples.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, I do use the photos for promotion and for publication but never for sale without permission. The client receives a photo print release that allows them printing rights for personal use.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, the digital negatives are delivered with the album either on a DVD or USB Thumb Drive.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes! www.proofing.jmkphotography.net
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer 4 Signature Albums, from fine Italian Leather to Hard Cover Photo Albums. They fit every budget!
When will the client get the final album?
Within about 3 weeks of the wedding couple selecting their images for the album.

We hired JMK Photography for our Montana Destination Wedding this past August just based on his outstanding Photos we saw. Wayne took the time to meet with us and show us several Wedding Albums and answer all of our questions. His photos alone were a no brainer as to why we wanted to hire him, but his personality is amazing too. He was so much fun to work with and very flexible on all of our wants and needs. He did an amazing job with our photos and got them back to us within a month, which was exceptionally fast and we were so pleased with our Photos. We Highly Recommend JMK Photography. You will be most happy with him and his beautiful eye for photography.

Wayne is AWESOME! We had a very simple wedding in Glacier National Park with our immediate families, and he blended in so seamlessly. With such a small group, you'd think it would be easy to get distracted with someone walking around trying to get amazing shots, but that was not the case at all! He was so easygoing, professional, and was full of amazing ideas and worked so well with everyone. Months later, our families still talk about how wonderful it was to meet and work with Wayne! (He also takes amazingly beautiful pictures - our friends and family back home were floored when they saw ours!)

In addition to working with him in person, my husband and I had a positive experience planning with Wayne over the phone and in email, as we live in Minnesota and were planning things long-distance. We also learned quickly that he knows everyone and everyone knows him - he is well-respected in the area! If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional, easy-to-work-with photographer (especially if your event is in Glacier National Park), I would absolutely recommend JMK Photography. I wish we lived closer so we could work with him more often!!

We were married in Glacier National Park, and Wayne's knowledge of the park is amazing! He knew exactly where to take us and when the setting sun would be in just the right spot. He was so much fun and we felt at total ease. Being from out of state I was worried about finding the right people to hire, but I quickly found that Wayne is extremely respected and well-known in the area. I was blown away by the photographs in his galleries. Wayne's use of light sets his work apart. His talent shows in all of his photos, and I love every single one of my wedding photos. Every single one! I really can't say enough how happy we are. If there are any doubts, just take a look his galleries! His photographs say it all!

Thanks Wayne! I look forward to running into you again someday.
Cheers from Minnesota!

Wayne was AWESOME! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. We loved his open and willing attitude towards all of the ideas we had for pictures. He was very flexible and professional thru-out the wedding planning process as well as the wedding day. Even when we fell behind our timeline on our wedding day Wayne was able to capture all the photos we requested and then some. Wayne is a very personal and heartfelt person and it defiantly reflects in his work! Its nice to have someone care so much about your special day and making it be the best it possibly can, even down to the placement of your hair :). For any future life events JMK Photography is our go to choice!

If you would like to get married in Glacier National Park, I could not think of anyone who would be better for the task. Wayne is very familiar with the park, wedding sites, and personnel working at the various areas. Great guy, not pushy, and listens to what you want.
