IN THEIR WORDS


"SHE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR US! This is the second time I've found someone online that I really like. The first was my husband! :-) I knew what look I wanted for our engagement/wedding photos and saw that immediately in her work. I would have been more than happy if she were available, professional, cordial, and timely. We got much more than that. I love taking pictures but my husband on the other hand, not so much. We were so pleased to work with someone who is warm and a positive energy. My husband felt very comfortable with her easy going and mellow temperament at our engagement shoot. It was at our wedding that I was so impressed. I had warned her that my side of the family was full of Africans who can at times be ummm particular when it comes to photos and that I was going to do my best to make sure things were not overwhelming for her AND my husband. Also because she was pregnant at the time and so was I. :-) It was very reassuring to know she had a clear plan on how to deal with such situations. Because I was pregnant, we decided to do our gender reveal at the wedding. Things ran a bit behind and Kim stayed longer to ensure that we got photos of the moment we found out our baby's sex. She knew how important that was for us and it meant so much. I am a big fan of good, kind hearted people who are warm, sincere and genuine. I sensed that in Kim from our first shoot and feel that way since. It's been awesome to get text messages from her just checking in to see how my pregnancy, deliver and motherhood have been - so appreciative of the advice and kind words she has sent my way, they were much needed. I'm looking forward to our boys meeting soon … they were born just a few weeks apart. We plan to have her as our family photographer for as long as we can. If you're looking for someone who can understand the importance of and capture those special moments as you and your family grow, she's your girl. Thank you Kim!"

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.
