it goes a little something like this…

 

 

 

 

First We Get in Contact. I usually respond within 48 hours! If I don't, it's usually because I'm at a wedding, traveling or technically difficult! Send me a direct email to hello@rachelkayephoto.com if this happens!

 

Then we book your COMPLIMENTARY engagement session to get to know each other better! These are about 1-hour sessions and are meant to get to know each other and get a few rad photos of y'all being cute and having fun. I love to do them at your home/neighborhood and do something you like to do! Of course, if I am traveling for your wedding (or you are!) that's not always possible but we always make something work! This helps you feel more comfortable on your wedding day and able to be present and in the moment

 

Then we chat about your wedding details about 2 months before the party. This includes grabbing a full family formal list so you don't have to worry about missing any of those shots and we chat about how the day will go so I can better prep to capture all the things as they happen!

 

Then it's your wedding day. You Don't have to worry about a thing because we have talked over everything and you know I'm gonna get all the shots. PARTY PARTY PARTY.

 

{sleep in}

 

After your wedding, I make things easy. A preview comes within 48 hours with the exact DATE AND TIME you will get your final images. Forget all that ambiguous "your wedding will be delivered in 6-12 weeks" I tell you the EXACT DAY!

 

You love your images, put them everywhere and

 

THEN LEAVE A REVIEW AND HIRE ME FOR YOUR NEXT BIG THING!

Questions & Answers

Where are you located?

 

I'm based in Grand Haven, MI but travel all over the world. I leave room in my schedule for limited projects outside of Michigan or Chicago, IL. Travel to the upper peninsula or outside of Michigan requires accommodations and transport costs to be covered. Fees are based on location and I keep my passport current!

 

Do you take formal photos?

 

I love to keep things very organic and candid but I think that capturing your family portraits and details to be important aspects of a candid day! We work hard to get together a family formal list so you don't have to worry about anything.

 

How long have you been shooting weddings?

 

It's been just over 9 years photographing weddings professionally! I picked up a camera after grad school and never stopped. I realized rather quickly that I LOVE photographing love stories and weddings more than any other type of photography! I have photographed over 350 weddings.

Do you have insurance?

 

Yes! Of course. If your venue requests a certificate of insurance, just let me know!

 

do you work alone or with someone else?

 

All of my packages include me as the photographer. YOU CAN ALWAYS add on a second photographer, but I don't generally think you need it. We chat to go over everything and make sure you only get what you need

 

What is your advice for planning a wedding day?

 

SO MANY THINGS. But mainly if you can, go a year before your wedding to the venue and check out the light at the time you want your ceremony to be. Plan around light for your ceremony so someone isn't standing in the blinding sun! ALSO please do what you want with your day, if you are not happy with your plans you will not look happy in your photos! OH and last but not least if you hire a videographer please let your photographer know about it. We love working with friends but like to have a plan!
