What Wedding Workshop has to say about this Partner:

Kym is not only an amazing photographer but she’s an amazing human.  She’s a long-time friend of Missy’s and I have fallen hard for her as well.  Kym actually did the photo shoot for Wedding Workshop’s headshots and she was a complete pro and made us feel so at ease and was very patient while we laughed and made inappropriate comments during our session.  Did I mention she was very patient??

If you book Kym for your wedding, you’ll also be getting a life long friend!

Below is an extensive Q&A we hope you find valuable and gives you an insight into the quality of work you can expect from this vendor.

both. i like know what the client is looking for and hope to give them some surprise moments along the way. ideally, i will have a second shooter and that will allow both things to happen.

yes, weddings/events

yes and no. it’s good to have a clear understanding of a client’s expectations and wishes. i have found must-take photos happen mostly around the formal family photos. sometimes time, weather, people being late–things happen and i like to clarify that i will do my best.

i do not normally promise a sneak peek online. i might post a few days after the wedding, but i never promise.  clients get all of their photos at once in an electronic gallery. my contract states 6-58, but i turn them over on the first month anniversary.

yes. if anyone ever tells you no, they are either just starting out or crazy. even before i owned backup equipment, i rented it. i NEVER go to a wedding without a backup.

i prefer to, but most of the wedding i book are small, often second weddings. usually they are not full day and do not want a second. if a small wedding does, it’s a $200 fee. it’s also an additional $200 per hour if you take the 4-hour package and want more time. my other two packages include a second because that is just a bigger deal and you need two to be truly effective at covering the whole thing.

i’ve determined my packages by figuring out how many hours i spend on an entire wedding and came up with packages based on an hourly number.

i never give an exact number of images, but it usually works out to be about 100-125 images an hour of coverage. the fee includes 2 consultations, site visit, paperwork, shoot, editing, gallery of high res images, retouching of up to 75 photos (but i retouch them all), and print release. i generally turn over between 500 and 900 images. i have print prices on my website and prints can be ordered if the client would like. i also can refer them to someone to create an album if they like. i do not create albums.

two of my packages include an engagement session. i have also switched that to a small wedding boudoir shoot – a mini shoot. if a client doesn’t wish to include it, i will deduct $200.

my price list is attached.

yes, i’ll do up to 75 in the package. anything beyond that is $35 per hour.

even if i’ve shot somewhere 20 times, i do a site visit. i try to go when the light will be the way it will be when i’m there, the time of day, the season, the same set up. i’m an over-preparer, but it helps. even though things will be up in the air on the day of and all sorts of variables may and will change, i might have seen something when i was there on the site visit that will come to mind and give us a place in uncooperative weather or when another spot is being used unexpectedly or any other surprise! i also like to do some fb research before a wedding. i will look at not just the bride and groom, but the members of the party so that i might recognize them and call them by name. i try to learn the key players–parents, bestie, fave aunt. i do this even when i’m second shooting. it usually makes people feel special, like they aren’t just a random face in the crowd. it’s how i win them over and get them on my side for the day! LOL. my preparation for a wedding is way over the top, but i’m going to basically be the ringmaster, time keeper, peacekeeper, supportive friend and fill-in boutonniere fastener for the day, so i like to get as many folks on the team as possible.

no extra fee. yes, i really push for this because these details are really special and often second weddings don’t want to bother, but i still try to grab some. i’ve never met a bride who wasn’t glad i was there and got the details and that special time right before.

they are part of the set. i usually do three sets-one pretty basic edit, one with an artistic treatment and a black and white set.

i give a print release for all images including the ones i post online, so yes. but i maintain rights for advertising, etc.

all of my images are delivered electronically. occasionally, i still get a request for a flash drive. my contract says images will be delivered 6-8 weeks from the wedding date, but i try to deliver the couple their gallery on their one-month anniversary. i think it’s just a nice gift to make them feel extra special and keep that newlywed glow. 🙂

if i’m working more than 5 hours, yes, for me and my second if i have one. we always eat right after the bridal party so that we are ready for toasts or the first dance or whatever they want to do.

yes. i do have a destination rate  that kicks in if the wedding is more than 100 miles round trip. i charge mileage at .60 a mile after 100 miles and if overnight is involved, the room is charged to the client. meals are negotiable on an overnight.

yes, through the PPA-professional photographers association. i’ve been a member for 4 years.

i have a pool of friends that are photographers, several are wedding photographers, and i would immediately reach out to them. we have covered for each other during severe illnesses and have all worked together. we have similar experience and work ethics, if different styles.

i require a $200 non-refundable deposit at signing to hold the date. the balance is due 30 days prior when the client and i have our 30-day consultation to finalize details. (details are usually finalized up to the day before, but i like that 30-day touch base to cover anything that might have been missed or forgotten during the client’s planning).

the balance is due 30 days prior when we have our 30-day consultation to finalize details.

i have a very lenient policy. the $200 deposit is non-refundable, but if the date is canceled after the balance is paid, i will return it.

i do not have reviews on fb or google, but i do have references available.
