RESERVE A TIME TO CHAT SO WE CAN GO OVER MORE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR WEDDING DAY!

why hello, again!

In the world of wedding planning, the amount of information can get quite overwhelming. Don't worry, you are not alone!

This guide is meant to help you with almost all your photography and design related questions you may have while planning your big event.

my mission

With my wedding collections, I believe in doing more than just taking your photograph. I want to tell your story, document the moments of your life, and then turn them into a timeless collection of artwork. If you are looking for photographers specialized in directing and capturing the most beautiful, intimate, and sentimental memories, then look no further.

Being a graphic designer by trade, I use photography as a medium to document some pretty important moments in time. From your engagement to your wedding day, I am here every step of the way. I also offer design and calligraphy services to brides who are looking for a completely custom experience. I strive everyday to create a seamless creative process for brides and offer an amazing service so that they know and trust that I am there for them every step of the way.

wedding collections

We understand that planning a wedding is a process, and we are here to make that process more efficient and seamless for you.

Reserving your photography with us grants you all the special treatment and allows the creative portion of your wedding to flow!

here's how it works...

First, we will schedule a complimentary welcome call to introduce myself and go over this guide with you personally! I will discuss some of your wedding day details and get to know you a little bit! I always find it best to make sure I am the perfect fit for my couples, mainly because we do have to spend a whole day together after all ;)

After the call, when you decide if my services best fit your wedding needs, promptly let me know what you decide! I understand that this is a huge decision and it should be allowed to soak in properly! Two elements are required to book a date and that is your e-signature on our contract agreement, and the non-refundable reservation fee (50% of total payment - unless on a payment plan which is available for some collections.) Once you officially reserve your date we can get the party started and all do a little happy dance!

Next, we will sit down together and define the vision and aesthetic of your dream wedding day with a creative vision planning session. This is where we deep dive into your project and brainstorm all the details and deadlines! Oh! And you get to hangout with me for an hour :D

Then we set off to create your custom wedding brand + invitation suite tailored just to your vision and special event. This includes monogram and stationery design. You will be provided with 100 printed invitations, rsvp postcards, and outer envelopes. Upgrades and add-ons available to complete the wedding suite of your dreams. There are really no limits when it comes to custom designs!

I soon will be offering semi-custom suites with my new collection Petal + Blush. Join my email list to stay up to date with these new launches and collections!

When it comes to big events, day-of timeline planning and coordination is important. I will work with you well before the wedding day to create a photography timeline so the wedding day flows seamlessly and stress-free!

Lastly, there is no greater honor than being able to share your big day with you! I find so much joy in documenting love stories for my couples and partying the night away with your families. With my photography coverage, we provide timeless memories capturing your wedding vision for generations.

8-10 weeks after your event, you can expect your delivered wedding collection. You will receive edited, high-resolution, digital proofs via an online gallery that I will host for you for 1 year after your wedding. When you invest with a Wedding Collection, you can order prints, share your link, and send to social media directly from the online gallery. The downloads and print release is an option and can be added on to your investment. We also offer lots of different products like photo boxes and albums to display your images in style.

with your personal digital gallery you are able to:

- easily share gallery with family and friends by sending them your personal link to your photography collection

- purchase professional prints in various sizes from an exclusive, professional imaging lab. canvas and metal prints are also available through the gallery.

- share images directly to various social media platforms

- download your images to back up to your own devices and cherish forever when added to your investment

the agreement

By signing a contract with us, you will be agreeing to the following terms :

Upon purchase of the High Resolution Digital Downloads by the Client, the Client receives unlimited printing rights of the purchased images/downloads, which may also be used only for personal use, including but not limited to use for display on personal website, exclusive on social media for personal use.

RESPONSIBILITY + INSURANCE

This is an insured business, however in the unlikely event that we are unable to photograph/design for the event for any reason, including acts of God; fire, illness, pregnancy, family emergency or / extreme weather, Katelyn Cataldo Collections, will make every effort to find an acceptable replacement photographer/designer acceptable to both parties at no additional cost to the client, and/or at that time the agreement will be terminated and a prorated refund will be issued.

MODEL RELEASE

The Client hereby grants Katelyn Cataldo Collections, LLC unrestricted rights to use and publish photographs of the Client or in which the photos of the Client may be included for editorial, trade, advertising and any other purpose and in any manner and medium. All or part of any photograph produced by Katelyn Cataldo Collections may be use for unrestricted promotional purposes and uploaded to the internet.

If you prefer your collections to not be published or used for advertising and other promotional purposes, you may purchase the copyrights and non-disclosure agreement for a $800 fee.

HOUSE RULES

The photographer is limited by the guidelines of the ceremony official or the site management. Client agrees to accept the technical result of their imposition on the photographer.

TRAVEL + DESTINATION WEDDINGS

If the location of the wedding and/or engagement session is more than 30 miles outside the 15210 area zip code, a fee of $0.54 per mile, per photographer will be added to cover for travel expenses. Travel beyond 120 miles will entail a half-day rate of $800 to be added to your proposal. If applicable, it is the Client’s responsibility to pay for hotel and/or air fare accommodations during the duration of time required for us to be present.

BOOKING + PAYMENT

At the time of signing a contract with us, a non-refundable reservation fee based off your project proposal is required to begin, and is applied toward the contracted services. The final invoice will be due 14 days before the event date.

Collections and pricing may be adjusted or increased without notice. By purchasing services and products on your initial project proposal, you will be locking in the "original" price of the services. Payment plans are available for investments greater than $3,000.

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOGRAPHY

The Client will ensure that one specific photographer from the Katelyn Cataldo Collections Team and their second shooters will be the exclusive photographers. It is understood that guests will have cameras, however it is your responsibility to ensure that priority is given to us.

EDITING

We individually edit every image you receive. However, we do not do extreme body, face, or hair retouching. Blemishes will be edited on a case by case basis at the sole discretion of Katelyn Cataldo Collections. No further cosmetic requests will be undertaken such as, but not limited to, weight loss, tanning, hair adjustments, or face modification. Edited files will be delivered to the Client in jpeg format. RAW files will never be delivered to a Client. Unedited files will never be delivered to a Client. Creative decisions with any of your photographs such as shooting, editing styles, cropping, music, and artwork are at the sole discretion of Katelyn Cataldo Collections.

In the unlikely event that additional editing changes or revisions are requested, they can be invoiced as billable overtime at $100 per hour unless otherwise discussed in writing.

investment options

I believe that no wedding is the same and therefore no way has the same needs. To try and limit your needs to the confines of a package seems absurd to me. I believe couples should have the freedom to invest in the exact services they want or need. Most collections start off at about $2,000 + tax, but all collections are created custom based on what exactly it is you want.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: WHAT MAKES YOUR WORK DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS’ WORK?

A: We take all of our photos in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as often as possible. Our sessions are candid & fun!

Q: WHAT INSPIRES YOU AS AN ARTIST?

A: I love to stir up the pot a little so things don’t burn. Keeping my own work fresh by drawing inspiration from various sources is super important to me. The amount of work that my clients put into their weddings is no joke and I’m always blown away by how much love and creativity I get to witness on a regular basis.

Q: WILL WE GET FEATURED IN A MAGAZINE OR BLOG?

A: Although many of our sessions do get featured, this is not something that is guaranteed. Most publishers are interested in colorful, uniquely designed weddings!

Q: DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH ELOPEMENTS?

A: Of course! These usually are the most creative sessions, since there are no other distractions.

Q: DO YOU HAVE A LIST OF PREFERRED VENDORS TO USE?

A: We sure do! From wedding coordinators to florists and caterers, we have worked with some of the best companies in the industry and would be happy to share their information with you!

Q: WE’RE HAVING A DESTINATION WEDDING. DO YOU TRAVEL?

A: Yes! We love destination weddings and have been lucky enough to travel all over the world shooting weddings. Send us more information on your travel plans, and we will create a custom wedding collection to suit your needs.

Q: DO I HAVE TO ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?

A: We highly recommend ordering prints through our professional lab, but it is not required. The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so we encourage clients to let us help with prints!

Q: WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

A: We use all of the latest canon equipment. We always carry the 5d mark III, the 6D mark II cameras along with our 35, 50, 85 mm lenses, 24-105 mm lens, & the 70-300 mm lens, among other items. All of our cameras and lenses have a backup in the rare event that anything should happen to one of our pieces.

Q: HOW LONG UNTIL WE GET OUR PICTURES?

A: We begin to work on your images the day after your wedding. You’ll see something pretty quickly to hold you over, and all of the images will be delivered in 8 - 10 weeks digitally.

Q: HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING DATE?

A: A 50% reservation fee and signed contract is required in order to get your wedding day on the calendar. Two weeks prior to your wedding, the remainder of the balance is due.
