Amy Whitlock has been shooting weddings and portraits for 12 years. Starting in Dallas, Texas, working for a prominent wedding and portrait photographer, she gathered, and continues to gather, any information she can get about the art of photography and the business of working with people during their most memorable occasions. While in Dallas, she started her own photography business, Amy Wilkerson Photography, and worked successfully throughout Dallas, Ft. Worth and Austin, capturing wedding memories whenever privileged to do so. Amy is now located in the Houston, Texas area. Amy has a modern approach to wedding, event and portrait photography, attempting to catch the nuances of a subject's personality, over a traditional pose. Amy is flexible and easy to work with while maintaining a high standard of professionalism. She loves to participate in weddings, to be part of the event, behind the scenes, capturing the day as it unfolds in order to ultimately provide the bride and groom with a collection of artful memories.

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Negatives, Prints
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I offer special techniques through artful color and saturation, and I especially love working with black and white.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have experience in working in many different lighting situations. I love to shoot in low-light settings. It creates more mood for the images and sometimes achieves and old-fashioned element that I find appealing in wedding photography. It's mixing the old and the new.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I work 100% in digital, though was a late bloomer in the digital medium. I learned photography on film and didn't want to change. However, shooting weddings with 1,000 or more images, digital is necessary in order to manage the images.
How many photographers do you work with?
I shoot all of my own weddings. I have a few second-shooters who work with me, depending on who is available on the wedding date.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Absolutely. I would have to be on my death bed to miss a wedding.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I might book more than one event in a weekend so long as there is no way they will overlap one another. Not more in one day, no.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a network of photographers to whom I would turn if such an event were to occur.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
All of the basics, plus back-ups of everything. Plenty of memory and batteries. And my ever-present Fong light difuser!
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Definitely
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My packages vary based on time and product.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I can definitely stay extra time if the bride and groom so desire. I charge $250 per hour over the contracted time.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Depending on how long the day is, I will need a few minutes to break at some point. During dinner is the best time to do this because no one wants their photo taken with a mouth full of food! If the event extends over 5 hours, I will likely need a meal. If the bride and groom want to provide one for me (and second shooter), that's fine. If not, that's fine as well, we'll just need to know in advance in order to make arrangements.
Do you charge for travel?
Not within the Detroit/Ann Arbor areas. Outside of these areas, I would need to charge for travel in order to cover expenses. This is on a case by case basis. For destination weddings, I do require the bride and groom to provide my travel and lodgings.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Depending on the length of the event, two to four weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Each bride and groom has a website designated especially for them. As soon as the images are ready for viewing, they are uploaded and the bride and groom are notified by email of their website and account. They can share their website with friends and family around the world. In addition, all of my packages include a full-resolution DVD of all images, so they will have those to browse as well.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The DVD's are for the client to keep.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Along with the DVD, I give the bride and groom full reproduction rights.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, for advertising, website, and contest purposes.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, Digital files.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, for 12 weeks.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Full-mount, coffee table albums.
When will the client get the final album?
Once the album order is placed, it takes 8 to 12 weeks to obtain the final product.

A wedding can be a stressful day for those involved. Amy was a pleasure to work with and aside from the terrifically high level of professionalism, brought humour as well as a calm relaxed attitude. Her work was nothing short of pure art and covered every aspect of our wedding, from the getting ready of the bride and the ladies to the smartening of the groom and hangin' with the boys. Amy was wonderfully creative in how she captured the day and we couldn't be more delighted. Without hesitation we heartily recommend her to anyone for their photography needs and hope she will work with us again on another stage of our married life. Thanks Amy, you're a star!

I really enjoyed working with Amy! She allowed me to rework one of her wedding packages, since it didn't quite fits my desires and budget. She always responded to emails and calls with a warm attitude, which made it easy to speak with her. Most importantly, the pictures turned out great! She captured everything she said she would. Nothing was too "cookie-cutter" looking; I see a sense of artistry in my pictures, which was VERY important to me! I feel I picked the right photographer.

Amy was wonderful. She did amazing work, was kind & professional and worked hard to capture the best moments of my wedding. She was awesome during my bridal portrait shoot - she helped me feel natural in my wedding dress. Everything about working with her was easy & fun. I especially loved all of the photojournalistic pictures she took - some of the best & my favorites. The only thing I'm sad about is that she lives in Michigan now, and I can't recommend her to people I know in Dallas.

Amy did my wedding in June of 2007. I feel that she was one of the best vendor choices I made. She came very highly recommended by my wedding planner and did not disappoint. I really really loved all of my images. She has a great style and made everyone look beautiful.
She is also really great to work with. Always professional and on time. She really will go above and beyond for you. I can give you an example. I booked a specific time for my bridal portrait session because my grandmother was flying in from out of state to be there for the pictures. Amy made it a point to be there even though I believe she had just gotten out of the hospital days before with a pneumonia. She knew how important it was for me and didn't even ask me to reschedule. You can count on her! All in all, I would recommend her to anyone I knew.
