Do you offer engagement sessions with your wedding packages?
Yes, yes, yes!!! In fact, all of my wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session because that is just how important they are! It is a great way for me to get to know my couples BEFORE the wedding day. It’s not everyday that you have a girl with a giant camera following you around everywhere, and it can definitely be a little weird! Your engagement session will help you & your fiancé become comfortable in front of the camera, and this will make your wedding day photography a lot more fun & laid-back! :)
What if I’m out of town? Can we still do an engagement session?
Definitely! For couples who are out of town, I usually plan to arrive to the wedding location a day earlier than needed so that we can get the engagement session done… I will just need an extra night’s hotel stay, so I don’t have to sleep in my car. :)
I see you live in Arkansas. Do you ever travel to shoot weddings?
Yes, I am willing to travel pretty much anywhere. I even offer special travel discounts for weddings in Jacksonville, Florida, since I love to visit home. :)
How do I book you for my wedding?
As long as I am available for your date, all I need is a signed contract and 50% deposit to hold your date! If I will be traveling for your wedding, I will need the travel expenses paid up front so I can book my flight and all that jazz. :)
Do you work with an assistant?
Always! Having a 2nd shooter is so important because sadly, I cannot be in two places at once. Trust me, I’ve tried. So while I’m capturing you putting your dress on, my 2nd can be capturing the groom’s mother pin his boutonnière.
What is the deal with the First Look? Are you going to make me do one of those?
Haha. I can’t make you do a First Look. Although, I wish I could. I have a separate page dedicated to the First Look under the ‘info’ tab. Check it out!
I purchased a DVD of my edited images/was tagged in some images on Facebook… Can I share them on my own Facebook page?
Well, of course! Your friends & family want to see those, so they can comment and share their love! Just be sure to give credit to Kelsey Tice Photography in the caption, and please refrain from cropping/editing the image. :)
I attended a wedding that you shot & I want to buy a few prints! How can I do that?
Awesome! If the wedding has been fully edited, the images are available in an online gallery that you can order through. The bride & groom have the info on how to access this gallery, or you can send me an email at email@example.com, and I will hook you up!
I’m not getting married, but will you still take my picture?
Yes! I do not discriminate against those who are not getting married. :) I offer portrait sessions (seniors, family, maternity, just cause, etc.) starting at $250. Contact me for more details.
I want to get into photography… What kind of camera should I buy?
I started with a little Canon Rebel, and that camera was the bomb.com! It got me through my first year of shooting, and it was only $550! The whole Canon Rebel line is GREAT, and they range in price from $500-$900… Totally affordable for someone who is serious about learning how to work an SLR camera. But BE WARNED. The kit lens is NOT one that you want to keep around for long. Most people don’t realize that investing in a good lens usually more important than the camera! I recommend starting with Canon’s 50mm f/1.8. It’s only about $100 and will make a HUGE difference in your images!
Why do you use so many smiley faces? It’s kind of annoying.
I know, I know. I have a problem and have a very difficult time limiting my smileys. I kinda stopped caring a while ago, even though I tend to annoy myself. :) :) :) :) Sorry. That was uncalled for.
