INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Color, B&W, Sepia.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
All lighting situations. I can shoot in indoor, outdoor, existing or artificial light and with flash or no flash. I can cover any situation. I am a Certified Professional Photographer.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital
How many photographers do you work with?
Depending on the situation, I either photograph with a second photographer or I can cover a wedding all by myself. Please call and we can discuss what would be appropriate for your wedding plans.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
YES! I am a professional and very dependable. I show up early or on time, I am respectful of your privacy if you prefer me to not photograph something, for instance, getting dressed. But I will expect to be able to photograph everything during your event unless we have discussed not doing so prior to the wedding or event. Planning is a big part of what I do. There will be no surprises unless the weather gives us one!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I do only ONE wedding per day so that I can give my very best to my clients. I will do two weddings on different days on a weekend, however, usually they are not both full day weddings.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, I am connected to many professional photographers, and I belong to the Professional Photographers of America and other networking groups - so if I did become ill, I would be able to send another qualified professional. This has never happened.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I brings 2 cameras, 2 flashes, tons of digital film, a tripod in case I need it, multiple lenses. I try to travel light in order to move quickly and capture the action.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
YES. I have 2 of everything.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I have both options and will work with you for your individual needs.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I usually work this out with my brides and grooms before the wedding and I am paid in full 2 weeks before the day. IF there was an unusual situation where things went so late that I stay much longer past the agreed schedule, the hourly fee would be implemented ($250/hr.)
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I will take a bathroom break and time to eat some food- otherwise I work pretty hard. This usually occurs during dinner, and I never leave the room unless I am sure that no special event is about to happen. I let the DJ know where I am if I do leave to use a restroom. Otherwise, there is no reason to leave and I am always planning the next moves. I do require that I be feed a hot meal.
Do you charge for travel?
Only if it is out of state or if I need to stay overnight.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Approximately a week, depending on the day of the wedding. If I don't have a wedding on a Sunday, I usually take that day off to be with my family.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online gallery to view and purchase. I consider myself a 'Green' photographer and will not print unless it is necessary. If you would like a printed proof book, I will create one for you. But most of my couples prefer to proof with an online gallery.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
N/A
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes. (See next question below)
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. In the contract, I share copyright with my couples. These are your wedding photos that I create for you. You will upon the delivery of the album receive a thumb drive of all the finished images for safe keeping and for personal use. 
 If you choose not to sign the model release, I will not publish your images. Most couples allow me to blog and post on facebook. It makes it easy and fun to share your wed photos that way. For military personnel and in other special circumstances, I have been asked not to publish and I will respect those wishes.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, when the client has purchased an album and the prints that they need. The files are mostly for safe keeping and for personal use in printing small prints, FB, and extra copies. I include a thumb drive with all finished images upon delivery of the wedding album.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. I have an online gallery to view the images. This is helpful also for the couples friends, family and people who may not have been able to attend the wedding to see the images. They can purchase photos from the gallery so that the B & G don't have to take orders. I usually create prints for the couple and immediate family of the B&G myself.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Artistic, handcrafted custom designed albums by American and Italian artisans. I design all my albums. Professional printers and binders create the book.
When will the client get the final album?
As early as 3 months after the wedding you will receive your album. This also depends on how soon you get back to me after I send you a draft of the album design. I create the first design for you and we work together to make any changes that you want. We can do this by phone, skype or in person. It is simple, painless and fun.

My husband and I looked long and hard for the right photographer and stopped immediately when we saw Kim's work. She has a wonderful way of capturing the essence of a moment, while being completely unobtrusive. Our pictures were phenomenal! We also liked the fact that she was willing to tailor a package specific to our needs. Thanks Kim for an excellent job! - Candy McKay

From the start Kim did a fantastic job on making our wedding experience special and memorable. Not only did she maintain professionalism throughout the planning process and weather inclements of our engagement pictures and wedding day, but she was able to provide great tips and directions to people that do not normally get their pictures taken. Kim is also very easy to get in touch with. I highly recommend hiring Kim Bova for any event in your life where you are looking to document the story. She provides a high quality product at a reasonable price all while being unbelievly pleasant to work with.

I met Kim at her home studio and chatted with her about me, my fiancé, and our wedding plans over a cup of tea. I felt instantly comfortable with her and knew she'd be a calming presence on our wedding day.

She was very flexible and responsive to our needs, which was paramount as we were planning the wedding from another country. Originally we decided not to get engagement photos as my guy and I were only going to be in CT together for 48 hours in April (4 months before the wedding). Two days before our visit I was regretting my decision and she made time for us, snapping BEAUTIFUL engagement photos a few hours before I had to send my guy off on an international flight. We were overjoyed!

Kim walked around our venue with us a few days before the wedding, so she was incredibly prepared on the day, knew exactly where she wanted to shoot our first look, portraits, etc. There was a chance of rain on our day and she came up with a wonderful first-look concept that was indoors.

As we were finishing up our bridal party shots and eager to hurry inside to get out of the chill, my 11 yr old Jr. Bridesmaid had an idea for a posed shot. Kim was patient, listened to our JrB, and set up the shot. I can't wait to show it to my JrB as at came out very well.

After the portraits, Kim virtually disappeared. No cheese faces, no stopping for the camera. I don't remember seeing her at all, but she captured everything. The shots I was most pleased with were those of our first dance. We had a fast-paced choreographed dance and she captured all the best parts from every different angle. (My cousin took a video of our dance on his iphone and we could see her running circles around the dance floor!

We were able to view our online proofs the day we returned from our honeymoon, picked our faves, and dropped by her home to pick up a drive with our digital photos the next day before we skipped the country. There were so many photos that we loved from our day!

AMAZING! Kim is creative, helpful, kind, patient, and organized! Everything you would want in a photographer. She made the day very easy for me and I didn't have to think twice about the various kinds of photos I wanted. I knew she had it covered. I also knew I wouldn't have to worry about missing anything. She had pictures to represent everything! After the wedding - the photo website to show photos was easy and organized and the actual prints and album are beautiful. I HIGHLY reccomend!

Kim was by far the best choice we made! On top of being extremely kind, receptive and helpful she is extremely professional. The comment that people have made the most to us regarding the wedding was how wonderful she was. I will recommend her to every bride-to-be and anyone ever looking for a photographer in the CT area!

Kim is an amazingly talented photographer. From the moment we met Kim, we knew we wanted to work with her. She was informative throughout the whole wedding planning process, receptive to our ideas and produced original, creative pictures. It is evident from her work that she truly enjoys what she does.
She was able to capture the essence of the day and the spirit of our guests.
Our wedding was the best day of our lives and Kim caught it all in timeless photos!

It was such a joy to work with Kim Bova to photograph our wedding. She was patient, attentive to detail, professional and prompt. The pictures turned out lovely and she was absolutely a JOY to work with. Our wedding was a traditional Jewish wedding which Kim had not had the opportunity to photograph before. She came with us to the venue and took notes regarding what would take place in each room of the synagogue and knew exactly what moments we wanted to capture. She exceeded our expectations and we KNOW we will use her again in the future for other special occasions. Book her today, you will not be disappointed.

We planned our wedding in Connecticut from our home in Atlanta and Kim was very flexible and accommodating. She was very unobtrusive during the ceremony and reception. She took so many pictures from different angles during our short ceremony, I don't know how she managed to get around so quickly and quietly. The planned, posed pictures were very lovely and we managed to squeeze in every picture that we wanted during the cocktail hour without a problem.

Kim was great to work with, and very accessible via email. She worked around my schedule, which was a huge help, since my home and my wedding location were 600 miles apart! At the wedding, she melted into the crowd and got some great shots. I did not even realize she was there as she was capturing our most important moments. One of my only complaints was that she would not commit to a list of photos that I wanted...without this list, she did not know that my husband has two sisters, and in the chaos of the day, they were not photographed with my husband at all. We did get many other wonderful photographs though.

Kim is very professional and her easy-going personality makes her pleasurable to work with. This being said, I was unhappy with some aspects of her services. Both my mother and I could not believe that Kim failed to take a picture of my mother as she came down the aisle at our ceremony...everyone knows how important the mother of the bride is!!! She managed to get a picture of my husband's mother, but not mine and I will never have the opportunity to get that moment back. I was explicit in telling Kim that I wanted pictures taken of the ballroom BEFORE any of the guests were seated. Included in the pictures of the ballroom was her brightly-colored tote bag sitting in one of the chairs. Another issue that really upset me was the fact that she took some very unflattering pictures of me. She snapped pictures of me where the look on my face was distorted and unflattering to say the least. What's worse, is that she passed out cards at my wedding with the passcode so that all our guests could log on and view ALL the pictures. I firmly believe that the bride and groom should be allowed the opportunity to view the pictures in private before they are put out there for everyone to see! I would have like to have had the opportunity to decide which pictures I did not want to share with everyone, but was not given the chance. Lastly, on our list of pictures to be taken was a grand picture of my entire family...well, she got the picture, but you should have seen the awkward pose my husband and I were in. Not once did she make an effort to make sure my husband and I looked good for the photo. She only cared about making sure everyone was in the picture. This was a picture my entire family was looking forward to cherishing for years. I will NOT be displaying this picture in our home like I had planned to. My husband and I look terrible! My advice to future brides-to-be: if you choose to work with Kim, don't assume anything, but be EXPLICIT in your instructions!
