Your engaged! Congratulations! Now what? You have found your mate, your one and only. Now the fun begins.

My name is Tom Keene, owner and primary photographer of LAdigitalPhoto, LLC. I love my job and you will love my work. I can't believe how lucky and blessed I am to be able to capture things that happen in the blink of an eye. The flutter of a humming bird or your wedding day deserve attention.

Searching for your vendors is hard enough these days. Not that long ago you had to search through the yellow pages... now you can find thousands of people on line, just on this site alone. I'm glad you have found myself and my company. Being a professional photographer and owner of my own company allows me to be as flexible as you need me to be.

Our focus is you. From the smallest detail to the biggest concern, we have you to live up to. On your wedding day you need to know we will be there, on time and ready for whatever comes our way. We won't let you down. You need to feel special. You are and I'll keep you smiling all day and for the rest of your life as you share your precious memories...

Tom Keene, Owner & Primary Photographer

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, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We can provide you with any color, black and white or combo of both you like. Sepia is also available.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Light is what makes a picture. Controlling it in any condition is key. We work with what is available. Any true photographer should be able to do so.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We shoot entirely digital now. There is NO reason to shoot with film, unless you want to increase your costs, get less images captured and slow down the process to get your photos in your hands.
How many photographers do you work with?
I work alone unless you want to also hire another one of my team. I currently staff 4 photogs, not apprentices or trainees. Your event doesn't have time to slow down so I can show someone how to use their camera.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
If you book me, you get me. I have only missed one event in my career as a photographer.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We never double book days. That's why your deposit is your promise and my signature on a contract is my promise to be at your event... all day, with no time limit if you choose to book us that way.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have 3.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I shoot with Olympus E series cameras. The E3 is currently the fastest focusing camera available and has outstanding low light capabilities. It's not the fastest frames per second camera, but I am not shooting a horse race am I? :)
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes always.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Your choice. Full day always saves you money.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Sure we can go over if you need us. Our rate is based on what package you have chosen or if we are hired hourly.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I will be you from 8-12 hours. A meal should be provided by the couple since I do not have a way to leave you to go somewhere else to eat all day.
Do you charge for travel?
In most cases NO. North of Central Ca or out of state is the only time we charge for travel.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Normally the first Wednesday or Thursday after the event on line. You will receive your DVD master disc(s) within 2-3 tops.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
All photos on DVD and Online for key photos.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
There yours to keep. They are the originals.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes we do. You may use them anyway you want. You just need to give us credit if they go into print anywhere like a paper, magazine or online.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
See above.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes on DVD.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes on line through our site.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Magazine style and Flush Mount.
When will the client get the final album?
It depends on how long you take to choose your images. Right now we are at least 1 month wait on magazine style and at least 6 months on flush mount.

We just got married on June 13 in Marina del Rey and booked Tom and Karen almost a year ago. From the beginning, Tom has been nothing but professional and easy to work with...and he's pretty funny too! He came up with a package that fit our needs which also included videography for a great price. I had met with several photographers and he by far had the best pricing for the quality of work that you need for a wedding photographer. I'm sure that you can find someone less expensive than him but you will end up getting what you paid for and will regret it since you can't exactly have another wedding just because the photographer you booked took horrible pictures. Between Tom and Karen, they took some amazing pictures and we are now in the middle of picking out the pics that we want in our wedding album. I would absolutely recommend Tom and Karen and plan on using them in the future. Thanks again to Tom and Karen for all of their hard work on that day!

Tom is great with kids as well as groups, he has a great scene of humor, and he captured so many great memories! I highly recommend him!!

I booked Tom for my wedding after seeing the great job he did with my sister's wedding. Not only did the photos come out great - some have even been entered into photography contests - they were available online just a few days after the wedding. On top of all this his prices were better than any of the other quotes we received.

LADigitalPhoto is great! I can't believe how professional and inexpensive they are! I seriously don't know why anyone would use any other photographer/videographer. LADigital was at least half the price of all other vendors I looked at. They were also very flexible and timely. Tom Keene had half of my pictures posted on the website less than 24 hours after the wedding.

Tom at LAdigital Photo was excellent. He went above and beyond. He was friendly with a great personality and responsive. We had him do our engagement photos as part of the package. It is really worth it for save-the-date pics and stuff. We really had a fun day. My husband was so nervous and Tom was able to put us at ease and get some great shots. He was with us all day on our Wedding day. "As long as it takes!" he said. I don't know how he did it, but he was there to capture every memory. At my reception my guests were already viewing the pictures from the ceremony on a slideshow! It was a crowd pleaser! The quality of his pictures were just wonderful. He is a true master of his art. I would highly recommend him not only for weddings, but anytime a photgrapher is needed.
