Have a question? Hope you find the answer here.
How would you describe your photography style (traditional, photojournalist, candid, documentary, etc)? I consider my style to be natural and classic with a hint of sassy. I love candid, authentic moments and strive to capture those moments that tell the story of the day as it unfolds.
Is the package price limited to a certain number of photos? No. On average, you can expect to receive between 600+ beautifully captured images from your wedding day.
Do you edit every photo? I do minor editing to all photographs as it relates to exposure or contrast. In some cases, I do process to enhance the mood of the image — such as turning a color image into black and white. I do not over-process my photos with Photoshop. I think over-processing the images takes away from the moment that was originally captured in camera. For example, do not expect me to whiten eyeballs in portraits …it’s just not natural … and it’s creepy!
How soon after the wedding date should I expect to see the proofs? I know you’re anxious for your photos, so I try my best to provide a quick turnaround of four-six weeks from the wedding date. Additionally, I often do a “sneak peek” of a few favorite shots on my Facebook business page within 24 hours of the wedding day. So make sure you “like” Sue K. Photography on Facebook and share the page with your family and friends so they can see your photos too!
Are you willing to follow a shot list (or cool photo ideas I found on Pinterest)? Absolutely! Shot lists are an important tool to help streamline formal portraits and also to make sure no one gets left out of a photo. Ahhh, Pinterest! Following your wedding board provides me an inside look into your personal style for their special day. I will know up front what you love and it gives me inspiration to create a similar imagery.
Will you visit the ceremony and reception sites before the wedding day? If I have not photographed at the venue before, I think it’s important to visit the venue/reception location prior to the wedding date. This helps identify potential portrait locations as well as formulate a “weather permitting” backup plan.
What type of equipment/cameras do you use? Nikon camera bodies, lenses and flashes.
Do you have liability insurance? Absolutely! I am fully insured and I always have backup gear … just in case!
How long have you been in business? I have been a professional photographer for more than 8 years and have photographed a lot of weddings. I accept a limited amount of weddings per year so that I can better serve my clients and give them my undivided attention they deserve.
How much of a deposit is required to hold the date of my wedding? Fifty percent is due at signing of the agreement to secure your date on my calendar. The remaining 50 percent is due no later than 14 days prior to the wedding date.
What forms of payment do you accept? Cash, check and credit cards (via PayPal).
What happens if you are late or unable to attend? I hope this NEVER happens, but if it does I would arrange for another professional photographer to take my place. Someone with similar style, skill and personality, of course! :)
