How long will it take to get my photos? With engagement sessions and bridal sessions you can expect to have your pictures within 4 weeks. For weddings, I guarantee you your pictures within 6 weeks. Of course I try to get you your pictures wayyy before the 4 or 6 week mark, but if your wedding or engagement is during the busy season, it will be closer to 4 or 6 weeks before you receive your gallery.
Do you travel for weddings and sessions? OF COURSE. It's rare to find me at home on the weekends during the busy season, I travel all the time for my clients! I'm based near San Antonio, Texas, but I have photographed all over Texas and the U.S. No matter what state or city you choose to take your photos, I'll always do the research ahead of time and find a great location for your photos!
How will you deliver the photos to me? I will send you an email with a link to an easy-to-use online gallery. This gallery houses all of the edited photos, and I will even make you a video showing you how to download all of the photos to your computer.
What happens if you get sick or injured and can’t photograph my wedding? Although the chance of this happening is very low, I would send my associate photographer whom I trust with all my heart to photograph your wedding. The associate photographer is of high quality and professionalism! I would still edit the photos, so it's like I wasn't even gone.
Who owns the photos? Copyright of all photos belongs to Kaitlin Rodgers Photo, but you DO receive a print release for all delivered photos. This means that you can use your photos for personal use, make prints, canvases, post on social media, share with your family and friends, etc.
What if I need to reschedule? I'm always willing to work with my clients, and I will do my best to accommodate your needs! Life happens, right? But I cannot guarantee that your NEW desired date will be available. But if the new date is open, then I will happily move your event on my calendar!
How many photos will I get? I guarantee 40 photos per shooting hour. (But let's be real... it's usually more, I am an over shooter!) I make sure that you have a full beginning-to-end picture story of the day and that you will have plenty of photos to hold and cherish. 5 hour weddings can expect around 350 photos, an 8 hour wedding can expect around 600 photos, and the numbers only go up from there!
Do you instruct for posing? I’m kind of awkward/un-photogenic. 1. Get the word "un-photogenic" out of your vocabulary! I WANT to photograph you and you ARE photogenic. 2. I instruct you the whole way through your photos. That's why I am here! You hire me to guide you into natural-looking poses and use fun prompts that are flattering. You shouldn't hire a photographer that wouldn't do so otherwise. On top of that, I make being in front of the camera as enjoyable as I possibly can!
I’m not sure I want an engagement session in addition to my wedding package… That's cool, I totally understand. However, engagement photos are a great way to celebrate the season of your life before marriage. Plus, it gets you more comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day!
Can you shoot in rain or bad weather? Sure thing! I mean, if it is dangerous weather, like tornadoes or hurricanes, I will say "let's reschedule". But a little rain, a cloudy day, no big deal! I'm game if you're game.
Do I get all the images you take? You don't get ALL of the images because that could get overwhelming having to choose out of the possible thousands of pictures I would take for you. But I do give you the best of the best. You get all of the pictures I know you will love, all of the pictures that I love, and all of the photos that fill in the gap and tell a beautiful story of the wedding day. Plus, I make sure you have a wonderful variety of black and white photos in the mix as well!
