THE WEDDING COLLECTION
Yes, THE wedding collection. Photography is one of the biggies on your "Things We Need To Book For Our Wedding List" and the only decision I want you to have to make about it is, "Yes, we want Kaylie behind the camera." After that, I've got you covered. I am so incredibly happy you are considering me to be your wedding photographer! Please let me know if you have any questions.
I'm all in—I want to document the full story of your wedding day. Think of it in terms of mascara: I'll be there as you apply it, through the ceremony when your tears make it run, until the end of the night when it starts to smudge from all the hugs and sweet dance moves. Yeah, I'll be there for all of that. Everyone's wedding is different, so I work with you to create a perfect timeline for your day. Typical coverage is around 10 hours.
Each and every photo will be edited and added to your own online gallery. Within the gallery, you will be able to view all the photos, share them via email or social media and order high quality, color corrected prints from professional print lab. There are other products available for purchase as well such as greeting cards and matte board prints. The seamless integration with your gallery makes ordering and sharing a snap!
You will receive a flash drive with all your edited, high resolution images. I will also include a print release in case you decide to order somewhere other than your online gallery. The files are yours, forever. So yeah, go ahead and use them on Christmas cards for the rest of your lives. Weddings typically result in around 6–700 images with one photographer and about 7–800 with two photographers.
AKA your wedding photography headquarters. Your personal client portal will house your contract, invoice, timeline questionnaire and any other items I send you regarding your wedding photography. Everything all in once place so you won't have to dig through emails to find your timeline or to make a payment! I've set up a sample portal, complete with a contract and invoice for you to see what those look like if you're curious.
Total must be paid in full at least 2 weeks prior to your wedding date.
Payments can be made in smaller installments or one lump sum. You will be able to pay online or with a check. An invoice and payment details will be sent once you decide to book.
Taxes included in price shown.
Travel fees may apply for locations outside of Grand Island, Nebraska.
50% is due at the time of booking.

Yayy!!! Send me an email letting me know you've decided to book your wedding. I'll respond with another "yay!" and email you a digital contract to review and sign as well as a digital invoice.
The contract must be returned along with your $400 non-refundable retaining fee which will officially get your date on the calendar. You will be able to pay that through your digital invoice with a credit/debit card, e-check, PayPal or mail a check (you'll be able to see all those options on your invoice).
From there, I'll get you set up with your own personal client portal (home to your contract, invoice, future quesionnaires, and any other items I send you regarding your wedding photography!) and talk about any other questions you may have.
Down the road, we'll work on your wedding day timeline, but for now, let's celebrate the fact that YOU HAVE YOURSELF A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER! I am SO, so happy and look forward to working with you!
That's ok. This is a huge decision and I want you to be certain of it. Let me know if you have any questions for me and I'd be happy to help. If you're still shopping around and comparing photographers, here are some things I would consider:
1. Most importantly, find someone you can trust.
2. Find a photographer who's style compliments your vision for your wedding.
3. Price is an important factor, but remember these are the photos you'll be sharing with your family, friends, children and grandchildren. The investment is sooo worth it!
As always, if you have any questions or things you'd like to discuss, let me know!
IS THE $400 DEPOSIT AN ADDITIONAL FEE ON TOP OF THE $2900?
No, it counts toward your total! Your remaining balance after putting the $400 deposit down is $2500. The $400 is non refundable so if you were to reschedule your wedding a new deposit would be due for the new date.
DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS AVAILABLE?
I'm really flexible with how you want to pay. As long as it is all paid in full at least 2 weeks before the wedding, you can pay however you'd like. Some couples make a payment each month, some pay in full at one time. Whatever works for you! If you'd like me to set up payment reminders for you, let me know and I can get that set up!
CAN WE MEET BEFORE WE BOOK?
You bet! If you don't plan on adding an engagement session to your wedding collection I'd LOVE to meet up for coffee or a drink if you're in the Grand Island area or chat over FaceTime if you live farther away!
I KNOW YOU FOCUS ON THE CANDID MOMENTS, BUT DO YOU TAKE FAMILY FORMALS AS WELL?
Yes! In fact, I think these are some of the most important photos I'll take at your wedding. And here's the cool thing about them – I want them to represent you and your families. If you aren't "stiffly pose in front of a church" type of people, let's head outside to get some naturally lit and fun photos of you and your family together! Family photos don't have to be super formal, but I do think it's important to get those shots of you all together on your wedding day!
I'M NOT GOOD IN FRONT OF A CAMERA – HELP!
Trust me, just about everyone feels that way! I will give you direction and prompts to get comfortable in front of the camera. You'll be surprised how easy and FUN it is to get your photos taken! Check out what a few of my past couples had to say about being in front of the camera!
SHOULD WE ADD A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
I actually shoot more weddings solo than with a second shooter. However, adding a second photographer might be a good idea if you have a big wedding party or plan on having a larger wedding. Something else to consider is how important it is to you have photos of you getting ready as well as your groom and the groomsmen. If you really want both of those photographed but the guys are getting ready in a completely different location, adding a second photographer is probably a good idea. Basically, adding a second photographer gets you two points of view throughout the day.
CAN WE PRINT OUR OWN PHOTOS?
Yes! You will have the rights to print your photos wherever you choose. I recommend selecting a professional print lab for best results. If you're spending money on a photographer you love, you may as well spend a little money getting those photos printed somewhere other than Walgreens (uhgggg pleeeease don't print your photos at Walgreens!). You can also order professional prints and products through your online gallery and, trust me, they look dang good. In fact, I order my own photos through my online gallery because they turn out so amazing every time!
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
You bet. Some venues require seeing my liability insurance. If your venue happens to need it, just let me know and I can get it to them right away!
HOW INVOLVED ARE YOU ON A WEDDING DAY?
I like to think I'm pretty good at reading the room. I don't typically just blend into the wall but I'm also not overbearing on a wedding day. I am not afraid to move furniture around or tell people where to go and where to stand, but I also want to sit back and photograph your real interactions as they unfold. Throughout the day, I'm usually the one keeping track of the timeline and making sure you are where you need to be at the right time. During your ceremony I try to become invisible and sneak around like a ninja so as to not distract from the ceremony. I also want to have a good time and get to know your friends and family!
