QUESTION

Where do you live and how far do you travel?

ANSWER

I live in the countryside of beautiful Perth, ON; an easy 60 minute drive from downtown Ottawa and Kingston. I am quite accustomed to commuting there regularly for weddings and my pricing reflects that.

I am available for hire in the Toronto and Montreal area as well.

QUESTION

Can you explain your style of photography?

ANSWER

I am inspired by street and photojournalist photographers such as Vivian Maier and Zalmy Berkowitz. I consider myself primarily a documentary photographer as I photograph a wedding using a candid approach. That said I do guide my clientele throughout the day to capture fine art portraiture as well when it is appropriate. There is a healthy balance of candid and posed throughout a day.

My style is very candid, natural and real life through the mindset of composition. There are several factors that go into composition. When I am photographing, I am incorporating many factors into the scene such as; the moment, the light, the subject matter, the background, and among other technical things.

QUESTION

What is your delivery time and how do we get our photographs from you?

ANSWER

Within 5 weeks of your wedding or session. I will send you a link and download code which gives you full access to your photographs online. In your private-online gallery, you can download, share and order prints. The gallery is password-protected and there are no watermarks or logos.

QUESTION

How many photographs do you deliver?

ANSWER

It really depends on the size and duration that I am there for. An 8 hours wedding day can except a minimum of 600 high resolution files.

QUESTION

We want to edit our photos... Can we have or view the RAW files?

ANSWER

I do not send you any RAW (unedited) photographs - you are hiring me for my creative eye and style and trust that I send all of the right ones. My comprehensive, quality coverage and experience photographing weddings ensures you leave with a story that speaks for itself.

QUESTION

How do we secure our date with you and what do you accept for payment?

ANSWER

I send you the contract to be signed electronically through my Canadian owned & operated invoicing program, Sprout Studio. Once the contract is signed it will automatically take you to the payment section where a non-refundable retainer is made to secure your date on my calendar. The remaining balance is due 14 days before the wedding, but can also be paid on a monthly basis leading up to the wedding. If your budget is stressed please let me know and we can arrange a payment plan that works for both of us!

I accept E-Transfer (most-preferred), VISA, MasterCard, and American Express.

QUESTION

Do you use a second photographer?

ANSWER

In general, I work by myself and feel very confident doing so.

Second-photographers are available a la carte and recommended if there is more than 150 guests, detailed circumstances or different set-ups.

QUESTION

Do you photograph family formal portraits?

ANSWER

I provide my clients with gorgeous, organized and well-lit family portraits.

These photographs are so important and lets be honest, everyone prints these!

I will help you arrange for them and make them apart of the day that is enjoyable and efficient for everyone involved!

QUESTION

We are awkward having our photo taken!

ANSWER

Even I feel uncomfortable having my photo taken. To be honset I cringe at it, so I completely understand what you are talking about.

There is something to be said about the person taking your photo and how they make you feel. That is why I go above and beyond to make it the best experience possible.

I remind clients to breathe and quite frankly, photo nerves wear off quite fast once we get going. I will give you direction as needed, while photographing what happens naturally. You do not need to be professionals, you just need to be open-minded and remember how much you love one-another.

QUESTION

Can you show us a full wedding that has been delivered?

ANSWER

Yes of course! Just ask me when you inquire.

QUESTION

Can you provide our venue with a certificate of insurance?

ANSWER

Defiantly. Please let me know a couple of months in advance if possible so I can ensure my insurance company has enough time to process and provide the document.

QUESTION

What is your back-up system?

ANSWER

I use two Mark 5Diii bodies that have two card holders in them. This means there is a back-up copy of every photo taken, as soon as I photograph the moment.

Once uploaded onto the external hard drives, I back-up my files two more times.

QUESTION

Do we need to feed you at our reception?

ANSWER

Yes, please and thank you! I require a meal at dinner.

I do not need to sit near you at dinner, but please do not seat me in a separate room as it is very difficult for me to eat my dinner while still trying to survey what is going on in the room.

QUESTION

What happens if we need to cancel the wedding and/or your services?

ANSWER

If for some reason the wedding is cancelled or you need to terminate my services, the paid retainer is non-refundable.

QUESTION

Do you have reviews from past clients?

ANSWER

Let me clients do the talking! You can read all of my reviews under the "REVIEWS" page.

QUESTION

How did photography come into your life?

ANSWER

Photography came into my life unexpectedly at a time of travel in 2012.

Following my travels I immersed myself into the local photography community where I was introduced to fine art wedding and portrait photography.

I have had the honour to photograph alongside a handful of highly respected and talented names in the industry. I am deeply passionate about learning and growing as an individual which is why I regularly attend photography conferences, workshops and mentoring sessions to grow as an artist, maintain inspiration, education and current trends.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

EXPERIENCE WITH ME


Kerry's photography is ethereal! She has an incredible, dual, gift for both capturing people in the moment, but also fostering an immense comfort for more posed shots. Peoples' personalities truly shine through in her photos. She effortlessly ushered our large bridal party through the wedding party session, and she easily worked with everyone, form our 6 year old ring bearer to my 96 year old grandmother. Kerry was extremely organized and professional from our first phone call through the final shots of our reception. She has been an absolute dream to work with, and I feel so fortunate that a friend passed her name to us. From the bottom of hearts, thank you Kerry!
