Frequently Asked Questions
The most fun hour of your life! Okay, maybe not of your life, but definitely still fun! We will meet at the communicated location at the time of the shoot, chat your desires for the session and the game plan, and then shoot away! For one hour sessions, couples and individuals can have two outfits and one (broad) location. We spend 30 minutes walking around and shooting in the first outfit, quickly change, then spend 30 minutes walking around and shooting in the second.
What can I expect from a wedding with you?
This depends on which package you choose, but for all packages after booking – we will sit down together and go over everything you want and everything you’re thinking. From there, we will create a perfect picture timeline for your day together so we can have an organized schedule of where, when, and who for the whole day. The day of the wedding, I will arrive at the communicated location and start shooting away! I’ll photograph details, you getting your hair and make-up done, your dress, the location, the groomsmen, etc and then move on to the ceremony space until your ceremony begins. I photograph the ceremony, family formals, bridesmaids, groomsmen, etc and then we will move on to the reception where I’ll photograph you dancing your night away and celebrating until the end!
How long will it take to receive my photos?
For all portrait sessions, I estimate up to 2 weeks. For wedding day (digital files), I estimate 6-8 weeks.
What is your payment schedule like?
I require 50% of your total price as a non-refundable retainer at the time of the contract signing, and 50% due two weeks prior to your event date.
What experience do you have shooting?
I started second shooting under Alyse French Photography when I was a freshman photography major at the University of Houston in April of 2010. Alyse took me under her wing and taught me everything I know about shooting, and to this day I’ve shot at least 75 weddings with her. I transferred to Texas A&M University to study international business instead, because I decided business would help me more than a photography degree. At Texas A&M, I started my website and my Facebook page in April of 2015 as a side hobby while I was in school, and then decided that there was nothing else I could see myself doing after I graduated. I decided to make wedding photography my full time job in February of 2016. I now continue to second shoot for Alyse and own my own business, Kaley Elaine Photography.
