Overwhelmed with wedding planning yet? It can be a lot, I get it. But, your photos are all you have left. The dress gets dirty, the music fades...and when your daughter is planning her wedding and looking back on your photos, you want to make sure that they give her all the feels too. Hiring a wedding photographer is a big deal, because money is a big deal, but you only get to do this day once, so please don't trust "Karen with the fancy camera." I direct. I pose. I tell you what to with your hands so you get those Insta-worthy images. I focus on the details like the lace and the rings while you focus on your love! If you can cuddle and love on your hunny, I'll do the rest! Ready to do the dang thang? I like to keep things simple, so first things first...
To best provide for my couples I create custom packages centered around your photography needs. Based on the timeline of your day, travel, and the images that matter to you, we'll create a collection as personal as your wedding day. I am currently booking for the 2020 and 2021 wedding seasons and dates are filling fast. I recommend you book at least 6-9 months in advance.
I will help you create your timeline, after-all, I have done this a few times. During our discovery call I will be able to get a much better feel for what photos are important to you and will be able to guide you towards a collection that is the best fit for your photography needs and your budget!
I do include a complimentary engagement session with all of my wedding collections. I think it is a great way for us to get to know each other before the big day. if travel is necessary, we have 2 options, you can come to me (can you say roadtrip??), or the cost of travel for the engagement session will be added to your collection total.
I sure will! Styling is a small extra step that will elevate your photos to Pinterest-worthy perfection. In fact, once you are book, you’ll receive a copy of my custom styling guide, a bonus I created for my clients only!! I’ll even go one step further and help you finalize your outfits for your session.
The engagement session is included in your collection complimentary. It is a great bonus as it will help us to get to know each other prior to wedding day. No one wants a complete stranger in their face on the biggest day of their life! You are not obligated to use it, however, because it is complimentary it holds no value and not scheduling the session will not lower the price of your collection. I also schedule calls, send out questionnaires and communicate with you up to your wedding so we get to know each other before your big day either way!
Don’t tempt me with a good time! In fact, Native Roaming was born on the idea of travel. I’m born and raised Kansan, and while most people have tagged this a flyover state, I love the beauty you can find here if you just venture off of I-70. But my roaming heart will travel all over to help document your love story, I include travel pricing in your proposal after our discovery call. A good road trip soothes my gypsy soul.
I do grant a print release with your gallery, and you are more than welcome to print your images where ever you like. That said, I do recommend you print through your gallery to guarantee that you receive high quality prints. You’re in no way obligated, but, if you’re going to spend the money on a pro, don’t ruin in by printing with the equivalent of “Karen with the fancy camera” I keep my print costs low, so it’s really like the difference between shopping at Wal-Mart or Target, and you know you’d rather make a Target Run!
There are a lot of things that factor in to how many images you get in your final gallery like coverage length, whether your collection included a second photographer, or how many of your guests are “wobbling” with me on the dance floor. While I don’t guarantee a specific amount of images, typically I deliver between 50-100 images per hour of coverage.
I know how anxiously you wait for your images. Waiting is just the worst right?? I do my best to get your photos to you as quickly as possible so you and your love can relive your big day. Your contract states that your final gallery will be delivered between 6-8 weeks. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of your life!
You will receive a link to your personal, online gallery via e-mail. Give your family and friends your link and they can download the images they want. Your gallery will remain active for 30 days. From your gallery you’ll be able to download high resolution images for printing, and web resolution images for sharing to social media, as well as, ordering prints, canvases or albums. I strongly encourage you to back these images up on your computer, as well as an additional thumb drive or external hard drive. Your gallery will remain active for 30 days.
Super simple!! What a relief right?! All of my contracts are digital, as well as, my payment collection. Just click to sign and pay online and you have yourself a photographer!
Paying for a wedding can be totally overwhelming, I get it. You don’t have to pay everything today. 750 down plus a signed contract secures your date! The final balance is due 30 days prior to your big event.
