How many pictures will you take on our wedding day?
This depends on the size of the wedding. On average, I present about 800 images to my clients. As each wedding is different from the next, I will photograph as much as I feel neccesary to capture the great moments of your day.
How long have you photographed weddings?
I have been photographing weddings since 2013.
How soon should we book you for our wedding?
We accept wedding bookings up to 18 months in advance & popular dates (such as Saturdays in Spring & Fall) do go fast, so first we'll check your date to confirm our availability, then we'll meet to share more of our work & learn more about your plans & what's important to you. If you're out Lexington/ Louisville area or having a destination wedding, no worries, we are happy to do a virtual consult or phone meeting as you like. We do require a signed agreement and $500 retainer which goes towards your total package in order to reserve coverage for your wedding date.
We're having a destination wedding....do you travel?
Absolutely... we shoot all over Kentucky and we’re happy to travel wherever you'd like to get hitched for a nominal travel fee & a souvenir refrigerator magnet ;-)
How much will it all cost?
The answer really depends upon you two & what deliverables are important to you.....our Wedding Packages start at $1,450 and range up from there depending upon the hours and products needed. Our most popular Collection includes an engagement session with custom designed Save The Date & Photo Guestbook, all-day wedding coverage, your edited negatives plus a stunning hand-crafted Masterpiece Album for $3,200. We are also always happy to customize a Package for you to that is tailored to suite your exact needs.
How soon until our images are available?
Our goal is to complete post-production editing & present your wedding images within 2 weeks. We will typically spend 30+hours in post-production editing of your fabulous wedding day images, lovingly paring down then finessing those great images to pure awesome-ness.
How will we see our images?
We'll present you with a custom USB gift box including all of your images & they will also go "live" in a password-protected web gallery for you to share online with friends & family, as you like. Then you get to do the hard part....narrowing down to your "must-have" favorites to include in your wedding album. We will also permanently archive your wedding images, should your ever need to replace your copy.
Will we get our digital images & can we print them ourselves?
Yes, and yes. All of our Wedding Packages include your fully edited digital negatives. We include your images at full-resolution on a USB with a personal reprint license so you are free to blow up your social media accounts & make all the prints you want.
Do you also take traditional family photos at the wedding?
Absolutely, these are some of the most important photos of the day, and while we don't typically feature them regularly in our portfolios, we most certainly work with you to set aside time in the day to create these images.
How long should we have you shoot on our wedding day?
We want to capture all of the most amazing moments of your day...we typically will start two-hours or so before the ceremony begins to catch the tail-end of hair/makeup & work with the bride before she steps into her dress, and stay through all of the highlights of the reception. Depending on the size of the wedding party, length of the ceremony & what you're planning on for reception festivities, we'll usually average 8 hours of total coverage for a "typical" traditional wedding day.
Do you offer individual & family portraits, newborn shoots, & commercial photography, etc?
Yes, we have vast experience in all of these aspects of photography - learn more about our portrait work HERE
We might want some prints for our walls, do you do that?
Absolutely, we are firm believers in helping our clients to showcase their fabulous engagement & wedding day images in their homes, and we offer a variety of products to suit your tastes in wall decor. Everything we produce for you, from wallets to wall portraits is 100% guaranteed to be adored...if not, we'll always make it right.
Where should we shoot our engagement pictures?
We shoot engagement photos in all sorts of locations. Often clients choose a favorite place that's special for them. I love engagement pictures in the Fall and in any leafy park setting or during the Spring. We recommend showcasing your engagement images in one of our custom SaveTheDate cards or magnets, and offer a custom designed hardcover guestbook featuring your favorite engagement images with space for guests to write their good wishes.
