Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
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
Do you have liability insurance?
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
All of the images are edited in house, with typically about 20% to 25% being converted to black and white but that is left up to the bride. I guarantee all of the images will be ready for viewing within four weeks! Every wedding is different and that will depict how they are edited.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
At wedding there are all types lighting situations. That is why I am always equipped with the latest camera and lens in order to capture images in the dark situations. A combination of camera, lens, reflectors, and flashes are all used throughout the day in order to capture the best possible pictures in whatever lighting situation we are faced with.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital! Do people really still use film? :)
How many photographers do you work with?
I work with about three other photographers. I strategically align my second shooters to help capture the essence of the bride. Most of them are males so that I can be with the bride while getting ready and the other photographer can capture the groom. Every photographer sees details differently. That is why it is so important to have two photographers to have different angles and views and to have the appropriate coverage
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
I do guarantee my presence at the event. If you book through me I will the the main photographer.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I am a boutique photography company, which means I do fewer events over the year in order to give my full attention to my brides. So absolutely not I never book more that one event in a day or weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have close contacts with other photographers that I can provide the coverage if need be. But I have NEVER missed an event :)
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Currently I shoot with a 5D mark II. It is important to ask you potential photographer what kind of equipment they use. Although a good camera can not make a good photographer. It is hard to have quality images for printing without a quality camera. That is just the base, I have fast glass lens that allow me to shoot in different lighting situations and provides creative shots. I also bring the appropriate reflectors, diffusers, and flashes depending on the venue location.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Always travel with backup equipment! Because it is equipment and it can malfunction. That is also why it is so important to have two photographers.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I have packages that start with coverage of 6 hours. You can't cover the entire process of the day without having at least 6 hours. From the getting ready, the details, the wedding, family portriats, and the reception.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes I am available to shoot extra hours.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I typically pack a protein bar in my shoot sac and then just hydrate throughout the day. I don't want to miss a thing!
Do you charge for travel?
If the wedding is in Georgia then I do not charge for travel. I am available for international travel, and I do charge for expenses depending on when and where the wedding is.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Within four weeks I guarantee all the proofs to be ready for viewing, but typically it only takes two weeks. I love to share some of the images on the blog the week after the wedding though!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
They are offered online digitally, on a proofing website.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Once the proofs are given to the client, they are yours to keep!
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I do retain the copyright in order to share the pictures, but I release it to the bride for printing, sharing, or archiving.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
I do retain the right to publish, but I will only publish them with your permission. I like to submit a lot of my weddings for publications for magazines.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
YES I provide the digital files. As a recent bride myself I understand the importance of having them on a disk to use at your desecration. It is one of the most important days of your life, and it important that your parents and you can use, share, and treasure them!
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes the initial proofs will be available online.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer custom albums that are built, printed on high quality preserved photographic paper, mounted by hand, and bound in genuine leather. A lot of companies offer knock-off brands, but I only use Leather Craftsmen. Because the quality is unmatched. I offer wedding albums and guest sign in albums in different sizes and textures to meet your style and needs. Inquire for samples or more information.
When will the client get the final album?
Once the album is placed it typically takes about 8 weeks to design, print, and bind.

Kristy was our knight in shining armour!! Unfortunately, we didn't have Kristy as our photographer at first but then we realized we were crazy for not chosing her from the begining and went with our gut feeling and did everything we could to hire Kristy for our wedding! From then on, she was our lifesaver. She is so fun to work with and she did an amazing job with our pictures! Not only is she beyond talented but she is just a blast to be around. She captured every single moment, got so many great pictures, and got them back to us very quick! You can tell she truly cares about her clients and about her work! LOVE HER!
