Wedding Info

My goal is to keep you laughing, strive for something different and provide tangible memories in the form of intentionally epic images. Basically, what I'm saying is... I'm here so you don't have to worry about a damn thing when it comes to photography.

Questions You Probably Have

You're in the right place for greatness

The Process

Become genuinely interested in your story

1. LEARN

2. LISTEN

Listen to your unique wants, needs and values.

Strategically plan for peace of mind.

3. PLAN

The process of serving my couples is truly exciting because it allows your values, wants and needs to be heard, understood and captured.

4. MANTRA

Work Hard - Shoot Smart - Love Well

5. LEGACY

Preserve Your story as legacy.

With this process anchoring my intentional shooting style, I capture the unnoticed moments, otherwise forgotten memories, unexpected perspectives and the unique personalities specific to each couple.

Details

High resolution digital negatives can be used in any way that you see fit. Print as much as you want, as large as you want, from wherever you want without a watermark.

Images and Printing Rights

To reserve the date, a non-refundable retainer of $1200 is required. That is applied to the overall balance. Final payments are due at 90 days and 10 days out from the event date.
* All major holidays will require a $1000 fee added 

Payment

Each image is individually hand edited. However, I do not do extreme body, face, or hair retouching. Blemishes will be edited on a case by case basis at the sole discretion of Katy. Edited files will be delivered to the client in JPEG format. RAW files will never be delivered to a client. Additional editing changes or revisions can be purchased at $100/hr. 

Editing

If the location of the wedding and/or engagement is outside the state of Indiana, a travel fee of $1.57/mile per team member will be added to cover to travel expenses. 

Travel

I do things a little different.

No packages here. Every couple needs something different, so you make your own. One flat starting rate, add on what you want, don't add on anything you don't need.

MY FIANCE AND I REALLY WANT TO HAVE A NIGHTTIME WEDDING, BUT HAVE HEARD THAT WILL SPELL DISASTER FOR OUR PICTURES. WHAT DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO?

GO FOR IT! Seriously. while some photographers prefer natural light to artificial light, you should do what makes you happy. I come totally prepared to handle any lighting situation thrown my way. Expectations will be different though, and that's just me being honest. You can't expect golden hour photos of you and your partner if your ceremony is late in the evening. Unless you have a first look, but that's a different convo for a different day. You will never have to worry about whether you images will come out nicely due to light.

I KNOW IT'S BEST TO TAKE FORMAL PHOTOS BEFORE THE CEREMONY, BUT WE'RE TRADITIONAL. DO WE HAVE TO TAKE FORMAL PHOTOS BEFORE THE WEDDING?

I would definitely say that I pride myself on catering to the needs and desires of my couples. I also pride myself on doing the best I can for my clients, and that means I'm honest! Formal photos doesn't mean you have to see each other before the ceremony. I understand this is very important for some people, and am extremely flexible. I find doing formal photos before the ceremony relieves a ton of stress on brides, grooms, and their family members.

WILL I GET ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TOOK? HOW WILL YOU SEND THE EDITED
PHOTOS TO ME?

Short answer: no. Long answer... trust me, the outtakes can be rough. You don't want those. Mid-sneeze? No thanks. I take pride in only presenting you with the best of the best.
You will receive a password protected, online gallery with your fully edited images. Within 2-4 weeks for family and studio sessions. Within 6-8 weeks for weddings. Download those bad boys to your computer (and back them up) or order prints. It's up to you!

I WOULD JUST LOVE IT IF YOU COULD TRAVEL TO ME! DO YOU DO THAT?

YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU. For real though, I love traveling and sleeping in hotel beds. It's weird, but it's fine.  I do charge a travel fee anywhere outside the state of Indiana, but if you're on my travel bucket list you will get a seriously great deal!

We're ready to book! What are our next steps?

First, I'm so excited you've picked me! Second, I'll get a little more info from you and build your contract. The non-refundable retainer of $1200 and the signed contract are both required to secure your date. I do book on a first come, first serve basis, so keep that in mind!
