HOW MANY WEDDINGS ARE BOOKED UNDER KATRINA KIM PHOTOGRAPHY A YEAR?
On average, 1-2 weddings per month allows enough time and care required to deliver the proper level of attention and communication for each event. Once a wedding is booked, a conversation regarding details of the engagement session will be initiated. Potential locations, concepts, attire, etc. will be covered at this time. Then, one month prior to the wedding day I will schedule meetings with the venue and communicate with the wedding planner to review the timeline. This is when we will also schedule a meeting or phone call to discuss new business, further in-depth details planned for the day, and plan a follow-up call, if needed.
WHAT IS THE TOTAL IMAGE COUNT IN A WEDDING GALLERY?
Each gallery will vary in total image count and is dependent upon a number of variables.
Will this be a morning/brunch wedding?
How big is the wedding party?
How big is the family?
How many guests will be in attendance?
Will table visits be made?
Will traditional activities occur during the reception? E.g. Father/Daughter dance, bouquet/garter toss, games…
Past galleries have included between 450-1,200 images with an average total image count of about 800 pictures per gallery.
WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND?
The final gallery will be delivered within 4-6 weeks of the wedding day.
Prints will be delivered within one week of final gallery delivery.
Albums will be delivered within 3-4 weeks upon design approval.
WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED ON THE WEDDING DAY?
Throughout the wedding day movements and interactions will be directed to capture the subject’s most natural self. Positioning and posing will take place for more traditional images in conjunction with verbal cues and direction to ease any nerves and bring out natural interaction.
Katrina Kim Photography was founded in 2016.
WHAT TYPE OF MEDIUM IS USED?
Film images are shot on Mamiya 645 while digital images are taken on Canon 5D Mark III.
WHY SHOOT HYBRID?
Shooting on film offers the most dynamic rendering of light and it also allows me to slow down and shoot with heightened intention. Simply put, I love the results and enjoy the process of shooting on film. Film photography at weddings allows me to further established my look and my brand—I describe it as clean, sophisticated, light-infused, and timeless.
Digital shooting will always be a necessity for me. When there are fast-moving subjects, dimly lit rooms involved, or the need for a quick turnaround, a digital camera is in my opinion a superior tool.
WHAT ARE THE BOOKING REQUIREMENTS?
A fully executed contract and non-refundable retainer are required to reserve your date. Both are requested before the reservation can be confirmed.
