For weddings, you can expect to receive an online gallery link with all your photos within a max of 12 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints! Trust me when I say I CAN'T WAIT for you to get your photos. It just takes time. And I am a perfectionist. 

The most important thing is to me is ensuring I give your album the most TLC possible. I want it to be perfect. Can't rush a good thing, right?

For all other sessions, allow 2-3 weeks.

I promise to keep you updated on this process!

WHEN CAN WE EXPECT OUR PHOTOS?

Greaaaat question. I don't typically give a an exact number because I want to give you everything that I think is worthy of you seeing. I will never put a cap on the amount of photos you receive. It's also important to me to capture memories and not get hung up on a number. It's about more than that. I promise not to leave anything out. BUT if we had to get technical, you can expect to get between 50-65 photos an hour. (this will vary greatly based on the wedding or session also if you include a second shooter)

HOW MANY PICTURES WILL WE RECEIVE?

This generally applies for weddings and elopements outside of Minnesota. (Another state or country.) For in-state weddings I charge for mileage and if it's 4 or more hours away travel will include lodging. I always do my best to make this as inexpensive as possible for you. Planning a wedding can be expensive and I don't want you stressing about added travel fees or extras that can get tacked on. I ask for the bare minimum to cover things such as my flight, transportation if needed, and a place to stay. I will make you aware of any and all travel fees when I have a better understanding of where you need me!

(I am flexible. If you have a spare room, a tent if we are camping, or a hotel room, I'm good with that. Just as long as I am safe, I'm not too picky about where I am staying if it can save you some money.)

(you know for like a bomb honeymoon ;)

Just communicate your ideas and I am more than happy to help.

 

WHAT ARE TRAVEL FEES?

I'm Central Minnesota based and I'm ready to travel, always. It's one of my favorite things in the world and I would be honored to be included in any the travel plans that you might have for your special day. I'm suuuuper down.

 

WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND DO YOU TRAVEL?

First, this is the best news. Once you decide that you are ready to go - a signed contract, and a paid retainer secures your date.

WE WANT TO BOOK YOU, WHAT DOES THAT PROCESS LOOK LIKE?

FAQs

Music to my ears. Hit. Me. Up. Let's talk about making a custom package specially to fit your needs. I understand that sometimes one a day is not a one size fits all. I am here for you.

WHAT IF WE HAVE SOMETHING ELSE IN MIND?

I love that! Please just send me an email and I would be more than happy to help you.

 

WE HAVE MORE QUESTIONS

I always answer this by saying that I am more than comfortable and capable of shooting on my own. I know what is required to get all the shots I need on my own. I love working one on one with you the day of your wedding. BUT If you include a second shooter this will increase the amount of angles that you might see during your ceremony and first look! This is also another way to ensure you are delivered more photos. Not a bad thing! It's never a bad thing to add. Typically if you are asking me to travel depending on the location it is required for me to bring someone with me. Other factors that I highly encourage adding a second shooter: the size of your wedding, if the getting ready spot, ceremony, and reception are at different locations There is a lot going on..I highly recommend adding one. 

DO YOU RECOMMEND A SECOND SHOOTER?

You betcha! You can order professional prints straight from your gallery. Once you order, I proof everything and they are shipped directly to your door. I love the company that I work with and truly believe they have the best that there is to offer when it comes to prints. I also offer albums. If this is something you would like to do, I love designing albums and would be more than happy to help! Just let me know and we can start working on this once I deliver your gallery!

DO YOU OFFER PRINTS?

AH! Great question. If you have a zit, bruise, or scratch. ABSOLUTELY. Something that wouldn't typically be there, I am happy to remove.

CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP US?

I can help as little or as much as you'd like. I have been to so many weddings that I've honestly lost track at this point. BUT that's not a say that a planner and a coordinator shouldn't be used. I HIGHLY recommend finding vendors you love and trust from the beginning. Wedding planning should not be stressful. So yes, I will offer insight but day of it's best if I am able to focus on you guys and not where the salad plates are! haha  I know what works great and what could use improvement. I certainly can offer some insight. I also love making sure we have a solid timeline, not so you feel like it's strict and stressful, but so you can get all the less exciting stuff out of the way and enjoy your day like it's meant to be enjoyed! Having a plan makes the day feel smooth, organized and most importantly fun. I wanna have fun. Let's have fun.

DO/ CAN YOU HELP WITH THE PLANNING?

First thing I am going to do is give you a hug and let you know that it's going to be OKAY. I know we will make it work. Second thing I'm going to do is tell you to do is embrace it. I'm from California but have lived in Minnesota for the past 7 years (ya know snow and blah) and I always encourage my couples to embrace it. It's part of your wedding story and I think that is SO SWEET. For a session, if it's an unsafe temperature, I think it will seriously compromise the quality of photos you will receive, or ruin any of my camera equipment I would be more than happy to reschedule for you a session for you. (I need to be able to use my hands haha) Wedding day, we are rolling with it!

THE WEATHER IS BAD. WHAT DO WE DO?

No. Part of what makes my style mine, is how I edit. Thanks for understanding that RAW photos are not the final product and you deserve more than a half finished job.

CAN WE HAVE THE RAW FILES?

Booking Kaylah for our wedding was easily one of the best decisions we made. As I was in the early stages of wedding planning I had trouble even getting a quote from some photographers; however Kaylah responded within a day, and offered to meet me for coffee to make sure we were a good fit. Kaylah’s experience photographing weddings, and easy going personality quickly put me at ease. I was so impressed with her work that I put down our deposit that day! She was great to communicate with leading up to our wedding, and was so flexible even with us changing our venue and date last minute due to covid. Kaylah fit in perfectly with our small wedding of only 25 people, kept us on schedule throughout the day, and even got one tired little ring bearer to smile for all our photos! Multiple family members came up to me after our wedding to say what a great job she did. Kaylah captured every detail of our day from getting ready to our sparkler send off and provided us with thousands of beautiful photos to choose from. Looking at our photos (which I do often) I’m able to relive every moment of our wedding! I am so happy with how our photos turned out and I can’t recommend Kaylah enough!

client love.

I could write a whole series of novels on how awesome Kaylah is and why you should hire her! I’ll try to keep it reasonable here. Kaylah is AMAZING! She is everything you could every want in a photographer and more! She is so professional, so organized, and also so kind! You can tell she really cares about you! She has been a friend through all the wedding planning and has helped make everything less stressful! I could not have pulled off my wedding day without her! She is so so so easy to work with every step of the way. She helped me make sure I got all the photos I wanted during our wedding day and is so amazing at literally every part of taking photos. She also continually checked up on me just to make sure I was doing okay. She has great ideas, isn’t afraid to tell somebody where to go or how to pose or when to please be quiet for a second (which we needed). Once again she is super organized and helped me try to keep organized as well. Aside from Kaylah herself being amazing and perfect and professional, her work is outstanding. I knew I hired the right person and I knew our photos would turn out great, but I was still blown away by just how gorgeous our photos are. I couldn’t imagine that they could possibly look any better! I am 100% happy with our decision to hire Kaylah for our wedding and engagement photos and I literally would not change a thing about the experience or the photos we received. Just trust me on this, you want to hire Kaylah for literally all the photos you ever need! 

client love.

I seriously cannot speak highly enough of Kaylah. As she has completed capturing five different milestones in my families lives, including our wedding, I will forever continue to return to her and recommend her as a photographer and a friend. As an individual also in the creative field I can write a recommendation for you to read about her talent, knowledge, skill and style that she has developed as a photographer, but you don't need me to tell you about how well she uses lighting and focuses her subjects when you can see it in her images. What I want to tell you about is the feeling she gives you both during your session and when you receive your photos. She takes away the awkwardness. Yes, sessions can sometimes feel stiff and slightly uncomfortable, but she does such a wonderful job at making it feel natural and catching moments that are between the poses. She captures images that show the real happiness and excitement of her clients. Lastly, if you've read this far, when you receive your session. I never thought I would get emotional looking at one of my photo sessions, but the memories that I get to relive through the split second moments that she was able to give back to me are obviously priceless. When you are delivered so many photos that you are in love with -that it is difficult to choose -which ones you would like to frame, it is a good problem to have.

-Lindsay +Tyler

We booked Kaylah for our engagement and wedding photos. We could not be happier with the results! She was amazing to work with. She was friendly, reliable, and down to earth. We loved that she would get back to us right away if we had questions! She was very organized and was with us every step of the way. She not only made both of us feel comfortable, but also our entire wedding party, families, and friends. She went above and beyond for our wedding shoot! She came by early (definitely helped me out and got snaps of me getting ready when our wedding party was doing the rehearsal) and left later than planned. Kaylah made sure we got the shots we wanted. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer than Kaylah! We absolutely loved and appreciated that from her! We highly recommend hiring her for any of your photo sessions!

We had Kaylah for our engagement pictures session and we also booked her for our wedding. My fiancé and I have never taken formal pictures together and probably have a handful of pictures together from our 9 years together. Needless to say we were worried and anxious and felt like we would look like a bunch of weirdos during our session and in our pictures. Kaylah always talks about how much she LOVES LOVE and once you see her in action- you’ll see what that means. She was so sweet and funny and made us feel so comfortable. My fiancé ended up having so much fun and our pictures were even more beautiful than I had anticipated. I highly recommend Kaylah!

client love.
