Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No. I book only one wedding per weekend, and/or one portrait session per day. I do not book portrait sessions on the same weekends as weddings to allow ample editing time and focus for such a major event.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a variety of contacts within the industry that could potentially serve as a back up in an extreme emergency. However, the likelihood of my coming unavailable after signing a contract and committing my time is extremely unlikely and would be for only the most emergent situations.

I have a back up Nikon D60 camera body and also back up lenses in the event of an equipment failure.

Yes, $100/hr.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I don't require breaks, but do ask that clients be accommodating by providing water and food as they are able, especially for longer durations.
Do you charge for travel?
Only for longer distance travel (per package requirements)

There can not be a negative thing said about Kathryn Blevins Photography. When it came to choosing a photographer for my wedding that was the one area that I knew I had to make the perfect choice; and I have NO regrets. Three months after my wedding I am still looking through all of my wedding pictures amazed at the moments Katy captured. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

In my opinion Katy is the best wedding photographer in the business. She is first and foremost, affordable. With wedding photography packages started at $5,000 for some companies, Katy offers reasonable prices that just about any bride can afford. Secondly she is incredibly professional and organized. I have heard horror stories of brides not getting their pictures back, and Katy had all of my pictures finished before I was even back on my honeymoon! Lastly, her pictures are beautiful. Katy understands natural light and how to conduct photo sessions which creates pictures that need minimal editing but yet are beautifully composed. Use Katy if you can!

I would highly recommend Katy to be a photographer at your wedding. She was very easy to work with and the pictures came out SO beautifully! We are so lucky we had her as our photographer. She was my favorite vendor. I especially loved how she provided us with a CD with all of our photos within a week of our wedding! Now we have amazing pictures from our special day that will last forever.

Kathryn made my special day wonderful. she is very flexible, and did an amazing job capturing wonderful moments from my wedding. She also is doing maternity photo's for me, and has been so helpful working around my best rest, and limited places for the photo shoot due to the weather. She is so easy to work with.
