FAQ


KellyHiep_BrideGroom_ADP_0118WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

Home for me is currently Southern California.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

Absolutely! I have been all around the world and I can truly say nowhere is too far.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

Fine art with a modern artistic twist.

DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM?

Both! For weddings I shoot a combination of digital and film and for most portrait sessions I shoot mainly film.

WHY DO YOU SHOOT FILM?

I appreciate both forms of photography, but I’ve always felt more compelled to be creating images rather than editing them. I appreciate it’s color, depth, tones, texture and the discipline it takes to make photos rather than just take them.

WHAT KIND OF CAMERAS DO YOU USE?

Film = Contax 645 & Canon 1V HS,  Digital = Canon 5D Mark III

DO YOU RECOMMEND ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?

Yes of course! Because an engagement session is so important, I’ve made it complimentary to my wedding collections. It’s the best time to get to know how I work and for you to get use to being in front of the camera.

HOW CAN I USE MY HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGES?

The high-resolution images come on a flash drive for wedding collections and a disc for portrait sessions. You can use the files to print high quality prints & canvases, send photos to your friends, share them on Facebook or use them in any capacity you’d like!

CAN OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS BUY ALBUMS OR PRINTS?

Absolutely! I am happy for you to share your photos with friends and family but I also put your photographs into an online gallery for proofing and ordering to make it easy.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR US TO RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?

I work hard to make sure that your photos are ready as soon as possible without compromising the quality. I aim to have the online proofing gallery available within 6 weeks of your wedding date unless it’s peak season and in that case it should take 6-8 weeks.

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO WE GET?

At a wedding I typically create a couple hundred photographs. I then work my magic, picking out all the best images – removing photos where you may be blinking or in mid-sentence. I don’t limit the number of images that I give you, but you can expect at least 500 edited photographs (depending on the hours of coverage).

HOW DO WE BOOK?

It’s great for us to meet before you book. I LOVE hearing about all of your fabulous wedding details over coffee!
