IN THEIR WORDS


"I needed an amazing wedding photographer that wasn't crazy expensive so after searching all over The Knot i found Kim. She charges by the hour so you can customize your wedding photos around your budget which is amazing, i did not find any other photographers that would do that. I loved her photos on her Instagram and website so i booked her. After our free engagement photoshoot i was so happy we booked her! The pictures turned out AMAZING with a fast turn around time. The day of our wedding she was on time and professional. She got all of the pictures i wanted and kept us on the timeline i gave her. This was very helpful as its easy to lose track of time while taking pictures. She had me give her a list of the family formals i wanted so we could take them all quickly and it worked great. My wedding was perfect with the help of Kim and i'm so excited to see the photos! I will be using Kim for all of our photo needs and recommending her to my friends that are getting married."

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Coverage

How much coverage do I need?


This can vary but I have found the following timeframes to be pretty consistent. Pre-Ceremony: 1 hour + 30 minutes (Prep + First Look)
Ceremony + Formal Photos: 2-3 hours (Varies with Traditions) Reception: 3 hours (Entrance, Special Dances, Cake, Tosses, Toasts + Partial Party Time) Buffer: 30 minutes A full day like this would be most comfortable around 8 hours of coverage. That way your not being rushed through things. PRO TIP: If you are working with a shorter timeline/ budget try ommiting a few things. Such as the grand exit, shorter reception coverage and having the reception events back to back.




Do you work with a 2nd Photographer?


I do! The minimum coverage time is 2 hours. Weddings beyond the 8 freeway have a 4 hour minimum. PRO TIP: Having a 2nd photographer is great! Still over 98% of my weddings are solo. Its nice but can be done without a 2nd Photographer.




Do you have insurance?


Yes, I do! PRO TIP: Ask your venue if they require Vendor Liability Insurance. Most do, so its good to know ahead of time when hiring your vendors.





Deliverables

What is your turnaround time?


For both Photo I deliver within 6 weeks. I also provide Sneak Peaks within 48-72 hours. PRO TIP: If you are going to send out thank you cards, let me know and I can prioritize the photos you want for those cards. That way you can have them printed and mailed in time.




Do you provide RAW images?


The short answer is no. A donut without the glaze isn't complete right? Same goes for photos. They take some finess in post processing to make them special. I edit every photo and personalize it to be as I envisioned when capturing it. PRO TIP: Don't go for the unglazed donut, it's not as good.




How do you deliver the images?


I will deliver the images through an online gallery. It is password protected, so no randoms can find it. You can download the images right from there! PRO TIP: It does expire after a month, so be sure to download them to your computer and back them up to a cloud/ hardrive. Back up, back up, back up. Seriously. DO IT.




Are the images print ready?


Yes, all aimges are in High Resolution and ready for print. PRO TIP: Send the gallery link to your family so they can order prints right from there, one less thing for you to worry about.





Photobooth

How long should I book the booth?


Most events range from 2-4 hours. PRO TIP: Plan for the booth either during cocktail hour or after dinner. The coverage time is consecutive. No one will be using it during dinner, don't spend money you don't have to.




Do I need to hire an attendant?


No, but we will have someone from our team there regardless. To help set up and keep the line moving.




How do I get my content?


If WIFI is available, instantly! Using Email, Text, Airdrop + Gallery. No wifi? No problem! I have a hotspot n my phone the booth can connect to. No service? No worries! All the content will queue and send once the photobooth is connected to the internet again. The full event gallery is usually ready within 24-48 hrs.




Do we get prints?


Sadly no, since the Digital Features are so popular we can send you a high res. file for you print if you'd like.
