Photography is more than a service, it’s an investment.
At Kim Photography we are all about capturing the details of your special day exactly as they are and preserving your valuable memories for years to come. While you enjoy every precious moment as it’s happening, we are working quietly in the background, taking candid photos of your ceremony, reception, and friends and loved ones as they celebrate with you.
All of our images are of the highest quality and minimally processed to preserve the natural beauty and authenticity of your wedding day memories. Each finished photo will be a beautiful record of those special moments that you can cherish for a lifetime.
I’m ready to book my wedding, what is the next step?
After you’ve decided that you’d like to hire me to photograph your wedding, you will need to fill out a contract and pay a retainer fee to hold your date. We can meet in person for this or I can send you the documents via e-mail.
How many photos will be in our album?
The number of images in your album depends on the number of pages you order with your album. Twenty pages is the minimum number of pages for an album. I recommend having no more than 2-3 images per page. If you have more than that the photos will have to be smaller and the layout may begin to appear cluttered.
Is it necessary to meet in person before the wedding?
While it is great if we can meet in person prior to your wedding, if you are planning a wedding from another state, don’t worry. We can discuss details on the phone, e-mail or via Skype. When you arrive in town we can meet up for coffee to go over any last minute details.
How soon in advance should we book our date?
Most brides book approximately 9-12 months in advance. If you want to guarantee that I’m available on your wedding date, I recommend signing up at your earliest convenience.
Do you charge extra for travel?
Travel within a 50 mile radius of my studio is included. If your wedding or engagement session takes place outside of that range additional fees may be added.
Do you offer rehearsal dinner coverage?
I offer rehearsal dinner coverage provided I am available on your rehearsal dinner date. I can provide you a separate quote.
How We Work
Kim Photography specializes in traditional/photojournalism/fine art style wedding photography.
We make sure to take many candid images of your wedding and guests’ joyful celebration throughout the day. We also take some time; usually between your ceremony and reception, to guide you and your wedding party or special guests into classic and contemporary poses so you can have styled, gorgeous group shots as well.
Our primary focus is on providing every client with unobtrusive, professional photography services that allow the wedding festivities to carry on, uninterrupted by our work. With our low-key and quiet style we are able to capture the precious details and once-in-a-lifetime moments without disturbing the natural flow of your day.
Custom Album & Design:
Capture the love and celebration exactly as it was. With each wedding package you’ll receive professional, high-quality candid and styled shots. Our attention to detail will allow you to enjoy the day as it’s happening while we document all the unique little details of your setting and celebration. The most spectacular photos from your wedding will be presented in a custom album that will not only provide a beautiful presentation, but also protect and preserve your treasured memories.
Preserve your excitement and joy during this special time! With our unique engagement packages there’s something for everyone. Whether you want your images in the studio or on location, we can deliver high-quality photos that express your personalities and capture the two of you looking your very best.
Capture the beauty and details of your bridal look before you are swept away in the busy excitement of your wedding day! Our bridal session will showcase not only how gorgeous you look, but also every bit of effort and care you’ve put into your wedding look. We can photograph you on location at your venue or another place dear to your heart.
As special and magical as your original ceremony is, it’s just as wonderful if you chose to renew your vows. We will capture and preserve every detail that’s different, and every one that’s stayed the same so you can enjoy the memories of each day for forever.
Proofs are available for viewing approximately 2 to 4 weeks after the wedding. We may post a few images on our blog and facebook prior, so be sure to have your friends and family subscribe to our social media.
We do not guarantee a set amount of images. The number of images shot at your wedding is based on the amount of hours, activities and the number of guests. As a guideline you can expect approx. 30-45 images per hour of service that you contract. If you have two photographers the number increases to approx 50-60 images per hour of service.
Your final edited images are delivered in .jpeg format at 8 x12 in at 300 dpi. RAW files are not available for purchase and remain property of the studio. Reprint permission is included with your digital file purchase. We retain the copyright. Many print and online magazines use our images within their publications. If for any reason, work related or otherwise, you wish not to have your photos submitted, just let us know and we will honor that request.
We accept checks, money orders and major credit cards. A 50% non-refundable retainer fee of is required to reserve your date. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your wedding. Time requested on the day of the wedding will be billed at our a la carte hourly rate which may be higher than you package rate. It is best that you reserve sufficient time at your initial booking.
