The must haves 

+ Click each for more info

+ Wedding day coverage 

8 to 10 hours will fully cover a typical wedding day, and 4-6 covers a typical intimate wedding. I have different packages for these but it can also be customized to fit your needs

+ Second professional photographer

My 8 & 10 hours packages include a second photographer. This is essential to be able to be 2 places at once but also get different angles as me. For instance being with the bride & groom during getting ready at the same time. Then during the ceremony being able to capture everything that is happening flawlessly and not miss a thing. This is someone I trust to capture images similar to my style and be able to assist me when needed. I am the one that edits the photos that the second photographer takes 

+ High resolution & web size images (4-6 week delivery)

All photos taken will go through my careful selection & hand editing process, so that you get the BEST fully edited photos in print-ready AND social media/mobile ready sizes. (With full printing rights!) 
When it comes to the size of your full gallery, I don't like to set a number on that because every wedding is different. I give all the images that I think meet my expectations for quality. I guarantee a minimum of 100 images per hour

+ Sneak peaks

Within 48 hours of your big day you will get a sneak peak gallery with at least 100 photos! 

+ full access to your photographer aka me  

Whenever you need me, i'm here! I am all about open communication so don't hesitate to reach out

+ vendor recomendations 

a list of all my favorite vendors I have worked with, only the best of the best!! 

+ Custom wedding day timeline

About a month from the wedding or whenever you have a more clear day of timeline, we will get together (email, phone or zoom call) to create a custom photo timeline for the day. This allows everyone to know when photos will be happening, be able to set exact times for all the photos you want and to help the day flow smoothly 

+ in depth questionnaires 

You will get 2 questionnaires, the first being a get to know you questionnaire. This will help me get to know you, your fiance and your relationship a bit better and allow me to know exactly how to approach creating the best photos that feel like you!
The second is a wedding questionnaire which will come before we have our timeline meeting. This helps me to know the ins and outs of the day to help create that photo timeline 

Extras 

+ Engagement session

An engagement session is the perfect way to show off this exciting time in your life but also to be able to remember it forever. My 90 minute engagement session allows you to pick a location of your own or I can suggest some spots I know of! This is typically an option included in my packages but it can be substituted for a bridal session or removed 

+ bridal session 

A bridal session is a great way to have the spot light on the Bride for a full hour! At your venue or location of your choosing. This is a great time to have your hair and makeup trial done and get a bouquet made to make sure you know exactly what you want for the day of.

"Katie is the BEST! She did our engagement, bridals, and wedding photos and we could NOT be more thrilled with all of them! She is so fun and personable and just a joy to work with. Her photos are absolutely STUNNING and she was fantastic about getting them edited and back to us so quickly! I seriously cannot decide which photos to print and hang in our house because they are all just so beautiful! We can’t wait to call Katie next time we need photos!

- elizabeth colburn

My husband and I used Katie for both our engagement and wedding photography and we can't say enough about this photographer! She is so personable and fun to work with, while at the same time being a true professional. She also has an amazing eye for photography and edits her photos beautifully. The photos we have received from her are ones we will cherish forever, and we hope to continue to use her for our future family photography needs as wel, because I can't imagine working with anyone else. Lastly, I have never worked with a photographer who works so quickly! She does an amazing job of getting your photos to you as quickly as possible, and we have appreciated that so much through this process! We LOVE KD Hunt Photography!
