Weddings can get expensive. We get it. If the pricing you see above isn’t what you imagined, hit us up anyways and maybe we can adjust a few things and make it work. It’s not always possible but if our work speaks to you, then it’s worth trying! But if we get any vibes that you’re just price shopping around for the cheapest deal, then we might not be the best fit! 

FAQ VIEW ALL
Where are you all based out of?
Katherine lives in Denver, Colorado and travels to Los Angeles often. Lauren lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
What if you haven’t shot at my venue?
Being a destination wedding photographer, 75% of our weddings we photograph each year are new venues we've never photographed before. good The reason you don't have to worry about never photographing at your wedding venue is because we are extremely educated in finding the BEST light to make you all look good in any and every location.

I also ALWAYS arrive 30-45 min before shooting your wedding to find the best locations for family formals, first looks, bridal portraits and bridal party portraits.

How does working with Lauren work?
Katherine will respond to all the inquiries, handles the booking and payment process and edits all of the photos. Come wedding day, Lauren will be the head photographer. The reason we have Lauren part of the team is because of the demand for it! There’s only so many weddings that Katherine can physically take on so we handpicked a trusted associate so that more couples can enjoy the Katherine Joy Wedding Experience.

Once you book Lauren, Katherine will connect Lauren in the emails so you all can get connected! 
Do you travel?
My luggage is literally never unpacked. I'm not exaggerating. Every destination is different and I have friends all over the world (this helps me keep the travel costs LOW) so please get in touch regarding a custom quote of the associated travel fees. Scroll below too see my travel schedule!
How do we book?
All we need is a signed contract, a $1000 retainer ($2000 retainer if you add-on video) to reserve your wedding date. Dates cannot be held until both of these items are received. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding day OR we can set up payment plans if you would like.
The Support Group (The most exciting thing we offer besides freaking amazing photos!)
Once you decide to book us, Katherine adds you on Facebook. Then adds you to a private FB group that has ALL of our couples in there! She post tips, suggestions, ideas on what’s best for photos, recommendations of other vendors (coordinators, cake, florist, etc). The other couples sometimes post in there seeking for advice from past couples who have already had their wedding. We're extremely proud of this group and think it adds so much value to your experience!
Do we get all the photos?
YESSSS. The only photos that aren't delivered are the mid-blinking, blurry or unflattering photos I know you won't want to have. The photos that are delivered range from 600-900. Sometimes I deliver over a thousand images. It just depends on how long we're hired and how much happens on your wedding day. 
Should we hire a second photographer?
For weddings with over 150 guests, I recommend it.

A second photographer adds another perspective to the wedding and can ease the stress when there is a situation that requires me to be in two places at once. For example:

Getting ready (I cannot be at two places at once!): If the groomsmen are getting ready the same time the bridesmaids are, it's helpful to have a second photographer capture moments of them as well.

Ceremony: During the ceremony, the second photographer helps me capture the families reactions, the groom’s angle during the vows, and the sweet candid moments that happen so quickly while I focus on you both. The second photographer also helps capture cocktail hour as well while I capture family formals.

Candid moments: During family formals and bridal party portraits, there will endless moments happening between the families, guests and the second shooter's job is to capture the moments happening that I won't be able to catch.

I would recommend this if you want to get another perspective. If you are having a wedding less than 75 people for your wedding day, I would only recommend 1 photographer.
Do you offer cinematography as well?
Yes. Check out our cinematography portfolio in the VIDEO tab. Cinematography packages are only available when booking a photography package.
Do you have past REAL reviews from your couples?
Yes we have over 35 reviews on Wedding Wire and Facebook. We don’t expect you to read them ALL but we know it’s important to see real client experience. Here is the link

Can we have the RAW files?
RAW (unedited) photos won't be delivered to you - you are hiring me for my editing style and trust that I will send you all the right images.
Do we meet in person with clients beforehand?
Since we book over 35-50 weddings a year, 30 engagement sessions, all the time editing on weekdays, my non-stop travel schedule and we show great reviews -- we feel it is not necessary. We try our best to be as transparent as possible on our website so that you know right away if we're the right choice for you. However, I also offer a phone call/FaceTime meet-up before booking! So if that's something you feel more comfortable doing, let's do it!

After booking, we have The Support Group (which we are active on) as well as engagement sessions to meet. We also stay very active on social media, another way to get to know our personalities and don't feel like strangers to you.

**Side note: If you do not book an engagement session with us and only book us for the wedding day, we will make sure to set up a FaceTime call beforehand to meet you both because we think it's extremely important to connect before your wedding.
Can we see a full wedding gallery?
YES PLEASE. When you email me, I'll definitely HOOK YOU UP!
