Commonly Asked Questions About Wedding & Elopement Photography

How far in advance should I book a wedding photographer?

The best time to book a wedding photographer is typically after you have set a date and venue. This is ideally around 6 months to a year (or more!) in advance of your special day.

Should we do a "first look"?

A first look is great for couples who prefer to spend a little extra time prior to the ceremony taking photographs that focus just on the two of them. Portraits after the ceremony can often feel rushed, especially with large bridal parties and families. Another idea to consider is having a first look with one of your parents. Still a sweet and intimate moment to capture!

What are the benefits of having a second wedding photographer?

Typically, a second photographer is helpful for at least a few hours to assist in getting extra coverage of everyone getting ready, the ceremony itself, and the first portion of the reception. This allows for you to have extra images from a variety of angles — at the most important moments!

Are you available for destination weddings?

Yes! I have an adventurous soul and have experience traveling both across the country and across the border! If you are having a destination wedding, let me know and we can include travel as part of your photography package.

Have you photographed at my wedding venue before?

The important part for photography is not actually having a lot of experience with the venue; it’s being able to capture your day in a unique way. Some photographers who photograph regularly at the same few venues end up taking very similar images for multiple weddings. Let me bring a personalized touch to your wedding photos by offering a new perspective on your wedding venue!

How much experience do you have with wedding photography?

I have personally photographed or created wedding films for nearly 60 weddings (and counting!). I’ve worked alongside some of the best pros in the business, and continue to take workshops and courses every year to make sure I’m up-to-date on the right skills to make your wedding photos and videos truly amazing. 

How do I reserve you for my wedding date?

Once you have a date and venue booked, we can discuss details for your wedding photography options. After you choose a package, I’ll send you an agreement to sign and an invoice for 50% of your wedding package. Once these are completed, I’m your wedding photographer!

Katogenic Photography is a dream to work with. Kaitlyn and her team is kind, considerate and a joy to be around. She did our engagement and wedding photos and I was blown away. So much talent and her eye for the perfect shot is spot on! She’s the best and I’m so happy to have worked with her and now we have these special photos to look back on so fondly.

Bethany & David

Kaitlyn is absolutely amazing!!! My husband and I are thrilled with her photos and would recommend her highly. She creates true works of art and is very easy to work with. She’s not afraid to trek through the mountains and forest to capture the perfect shot. Not sure, yet? Just look at her images – they speak for themselves.

Chelsea & Ray

Kaitlyn did a PHENOMENAL job on our wedding photos AND our engagement photos!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! She captured moments that we will cherish forever. It felt like she was just a friend because she was so helpful and made us feel so comfortable. At the reception she was kind and helpful, even while capturing beautiful moments with her camera! 

Cindy & Justin

We chose Colorado for our elopement. Everything was stress-free… except finding a photographer and deciding where to take pictures. Since we were eloping, we REALLY wanted the photographs to capture and share our union. We spent weeks researching, reading reviews and reviewing photographers’ portfolios. Thanks to Instagram, we found Katogenic Photography! We admire artists that have that innate eye, that desire, that compelling drive to produce ART. That is Kaitlyn.

Stop debating. Stop reviewing. Choose Kaitlyn. Give her your vision of what you want and DO allow her creative space. She will not disappoint.
