COVID SUCKS

BRIDES with weddings all screwed up from covid-19,
this is for you

FIRST. I am so freaking sorry you're going through this crap. I know that whenever and wherever you get married, it will be absolutely perfect.  I have a few days still open this year for weddings. If you are needing to cancel/reschedule for any wedding directly because of COVID  and your photographer is unable to make the reschedule date work, don't worry! If I'm available, I will apply the retainer you have already paid your original photographer as a credit/discount to your package of choice with me. I know it's crazy and stressful as it is right now, just life in general. No need to add wedding crap on top of it!

welcome

oh hey! I'm KatY! And I'm REALLY PUMPED YOU'RE HERE

I first and foremost, love pasta. You probably thought I was going to say something about photography. eh. I can live with that level of disappointment. I'm located in Greenwood, Indiana. You probably have no idea where that's at, but I'm fiercely loyal to this little place I call home. Oh, and it's a suburb of Indianapolis. You should also know that traveling is my jam. I'm the only person I know who actually loves sleeping in hotels. I laugh, a lot; and loudly. If you're looking for an employee, I'm not your girl. On any given day you can find me getting tacos or coffee with a past client. My husband is my sanity. My daughter and dogs are the reason I need sanity. I rock a lot of stripes. When I'm not taking selfies with my clients, you can find me watching reruns (Scrubs, The West Wing, Parks and Rec and Psych of course), dancing, cooking with too much butter and shopping. I really really want you to print your photos and I really really love photographing awesome humans.

kind words

I didn't pay them to say any of it

"I just want to sincerely thank you for the amazing pictures. I think I'm obsessed with pictures because my parents never really got them done or ever hung them up. I just love looking at memories. You did a beautiful job and I can't stop smiling while looking at all of them. It means the absolute world to me that they turned out so great. Thank you for working with me and being reasonably priced! For girls like me that did have a budget and had to squeeze and pinch to make things work, it is a blessing you are as good as you are."

"We flew Katy in to Texas for our wedding to share our special day and capture every moment. I cannot tell you enough how amazing she is!! At the reception she had already worked on a few photos and we were able to view them! Freaking phenomenal! She is so much fun to be around. I seriously couldn't have asked for anymore.  It was more than I could have ever hoped or dreamed. I would bring her back in a heart beat for anything. "

"For over a year before our wedding we searched for a photographer to capture our special day. We found it difficult to find someone who would photograph an LGBT couple. When we approached Katy, we were met with absolutely no hesitation! She made us feel special and important. But most importantly, she made us feel normal. We could be completely natural around her without feeling weird about showing affection. Not only did she capture stunning photos but we also had an amazing time! She was fun and entertaining and was also not afraid to do whatever it took to make us comfortable and to get the best shots. We have found our photograper for life!"

this is how I roll

here we go

When I  leave your wedding, I want nothing more than a hug (and a selfie). I want you to be dancing and laughing. With your arms around each other. Maybe you also have a drink in your hand? It could happen. What I want you to remember most, is the way you feel. I want you to look at your photos and remember all of it.  I really want your day to be full of laughter and void of stress. When you view your photos, I want happy. I want you to remember the wind in your veil. I also want you to snort laugh when you see your friends dancing at the reception. Because honestly, did they forget I was there? I love SO MUCH that I get to spend  one of the most important days of your life celebrating with you. It's the most humbling part of my job. I will always be honest with you. Probably to a fault. Hopefully this means you trust me. So what happens next? Well we can set up a phone call or in person meeting if you're interested in that. I require a non-refundable retainer and signed contract by both you and your fiance. I also book on a first come/first serve basis. I book a select number of weddings a year so that I can spend as much time as I can loving on my couples. I'm so thankful you've chosen KDP!

engagement sessions

Let's hang out for a couple hours. Goof off, have fun, and definitely laugh.  Fun is the name of the game, this isn't one of those  cheesy sessions like our parents forced us to do.

Engagement sessions aren't just for save the dates. They aren't just a practice run with your photographer. While it is super helpful, I think engagement sessions are more than that. It's a time for the two of you to get closer. Think of it as a date night. We can go to your favorite coffee shop, brewery, or park. The place you first met, kissed. Walk, chat, kiss (you guys... not me), hold hands and talk about all the reasons why you love each other. Life is an adventure so why shouldn't you document one of the first adventures you go on as a couple, being engaged!

Sessions run for around 2 hours. We'll start  2 hours before sunset. That's prime light time. Don't wear anything too fussy or uncomfortable. And if you don't like having your photos taken? *cough* I'm looking at you, guy *cough* I bet I'll change your mind!

party.

No, not  that kind.

But kind of like that party. I think that just sending you your gallery link and saying Congrats is the least fun way to give you your photos. In comes The Premiere Party. Around 4 weeks after your wedding, you'll come to my studio in Downtown Greenwood, Indiana. Invite your family, friends, neighbors; or come by yourself! You'll walk in to the smell of popped popcorn, sit down with some champagne (or your beverage of choice), and watch a slideshow of your wedding highlights. We also have an iPad for full gallery viewing after the Premiere Slideshow. 

This is also when we'll finalize your album choices. Feel free to upgrade your cover, add additional pages or other add ons too. You'll be able to add on wall art and prints, as well. Important doesn't even describe how we feel about you hanging art from your wedding day in your house. We want to provide you with more than just a gallery link, or digital images saved on a computer. You'll still get your digitals, and don't feel like you have to upgrade anything.  We value you, your day, and our relationship (hello, spending 6+ hours together on your wedding day) more and want to experience you reliving those moments alongside you and your closest loved ones. 

Clients, and their families, invest an average of $2k at their Premiere Party.
Full price lists are sent out after booking.

Don't live in the state? No worries, we can have an online party too!

MY FIANCE AND I REALLY WANT TO HAVE A NIGHTTIME WEDDING, BUT HAVE HEARD THAT WILL SPELL DISASTER FOR OUR PICTURES. WHAT DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO?

GO FOR IT! Seriously. while some photographers prefer natural light to artificial light, you should do what makes you happy. I come totally prepared to handle any lighting situation thrown my way. Expectations will be different though, and that's just me being honest. You can't expect golden hour photos of you and your partner if your ceremony is late in the evening. Unless you have a first look, but that's a different convo for a different day. You will never have to worry about whether you images will come out nicely due to light.

I KNOW IT'S BEST TO TAKE FORMAL PHOTOS BEFORE THE CEREMONY, BUT WE'RE TRADITIONAL. DO WE HAVE TO TAKE FORMAL PHOTOS BEFORE THE WEDDING?

I would definitely say that I pride myself on catering to the needs and desires of my couples. I also pride myself on doing the best I can for my clients, and that means I'm honest! Formal photos doesn't mean you have to see each other before the ceremony. I understand this is very important for some people, and am extremely flexible. I find doing formal photos before the ceremony relieves a ton of stress on brides, grooms, and their family members.

WILL I GET ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TOOK? HOW WILL YOU SEND THE EDITED
PHOTOS TO ME?

Short answer: no. Long answer... trust me, the outtakes can be rough. You don't want those. Mid-sneeze? No thanks. I take pride in only presenting you with the best of the best.
You will receive a password protected, online gallery with your fully edited images. Within 2-4 weeks for family and studio sessions. Within 6-8 weeks for weddings. Download those bad boys to your computer (and back them up) or order prints. It's up to you!

I WOULD JUST LOVE IT IF YOU COULD TRAVEL TO ME! DO YOU DO THAT?

YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU. For real though, I love traveling and sleeping in hotel beds. It's weird, but it's fine.  I do charge a travel fee anywhere outside the state of Indiana, but if you're on my travel bucket list you will get a seriously great deal!

not your average photo booth

A gif/boomerang style photo booth? ARE YOU JOKING? Not even a little. and it's really freaking fun, too.  People of all ages get so into it.  No printers to mess with, everything gets saved to a gallery. Individual images are saved to a Dropbox, that you have access to! 

Thank you so much for considering me to be a part of your wedding day! If you’re interested in this  level of fun and crazy on your wedding day, shoot me an email and say "Let's do this thang!"

holla!
