First things first..
Congrats on your engagement! Im so excited for you and this journey you are about to embark on! Ive been married almost 9 years, but I still remember the joy I felt when my best friend asked me to be his wife. Planning my wedding was a bit intimidating because there were so many choices! So I plan to make this part easy for you! I think we are going to be friends, so here are a few things you should know about me!
Kristi Alyse Price
Ive been a wedding photographer for 9 years. Its been 9 years of pure bliss, because I absolutely love what I do and the people I get to do it for. Im a wife, boy mom, cancer survivor, wanna be chef and lover of gardens and all things green (but not good at keeping them green.)
My own Wedding Photo
I married my best friend August 8th 2009. I mean it when I say he is my best friend because that's all we were for over a year as we denied to our friends that we liked each other. I somehow convinced him to date me for over a year and then he asked me to be his wife and weve spent every day since lovin on eachother. We honeymooned in Disney World!
I love traveling but I get homesick so easily! I’m an adventurous soul, but I love going home at the end of the day to be with my people.
Ok this one is a freebie for you - I have a weird right eye and I dont mind you asking questions about it! I was diagnosed with cancer in my right eye in 2013 and had radiation which has left my eye looking a little 'off'. It doesn't bother me and I hope it doesn't bother you! And yes, I fully appreciate the irony of a photographer with eye cancer!
Bravo if you made it through all that! I really do think its important that we click as humans because we will be spending a lot of time together on one of your most important days!

When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! And that promise extends to your family and friends on the wedding day as well!

Here is what some of the many Kristi Alyse brides had to say about their experience...

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
-Turn Around Time-
I give every image the time and care it needs and never rush through this processes, but with years of experience photographing weddings, I have become very efficient in processing images! Im thrilled to be able to offer an incredibly fast turn around time of under 1 week for your engagement and formal sessions, and 2-3 weeks for your wedding day images! Often quicker! My fastest turn around times have been under 24 hours edited, delivered and blogged!
-How many images are delivered-
Unlike some other wedding photographers, I dont limit how many images you will receive, I will deliver every image that is worthy of being seen! I will take PLENTY of photos, but part of my job is to curate what you receive. You wont get the 15 photos I take all in a row of you cutting your cake... you dont need that many! But you will receive every image that I think you will LOVE and that will tell the story story of your day. Engagement and Formal sessions average 75-100 images and the wedding day will completely depend on how many hours I am shooting, and what events im shooting, but typically I average between 50-75 images per hour of shooting time.
To officially book your wedding date I require a $150 non-refundable retainer. $300 will be due at the time of your engagement and formal shoots, and the remaining balance is due 1 week before the wedding day. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check, paypal or venmo. Do you have a product or service that you offer? Let me know, I might be interested in a full or partial trade!
All images will have basic post processing done with our signature editing style. This includes basic color and exposure corrections. We don’t believe in editing your photos to the point of being unrecognizable. We think you should remember your wedding day EXACTLY the way it was. Of course we will be happy to edit away a pimple or two that popped up unexpectedly, but extensive cosmetic touch ups will not be included, and honestly, aren’t usually necessary because you will be GLOWING!
After we have processed your images, we will deliver high resolution digital files to you via an emailed link to your online gallery where you can download your images! My clients prefer the digital delivery over waiting for a cd or thumb drive to be delivered, and if you have access to the internet, you have access to your photos! You don't have to worry about loosing or damaging a cd, or forgetting to take the thumb drive to your moms house to show her the photos! You can share your link with whoever you want!
My work has been described as being a joyful and intimate spin on fine art wedding photography. Sometimes fine art photography can feel a little stiff, so I like to make sure my photos have personality! I put work in before your shoot to make sure we have the perfect location and that you feel comfortable and prepped for your shoot! This way, you can relax, be yourself, and just enjoy the shoot! Ill send you my posing crash course to teach you what we are going to be doing, review it with you before we start shooting, and take time to get to know you as a couple so I can really capture YOU. And on the wedding day I will take charge and direct when I need to, and at other times throughout your day ill stay out of the way and simply capture things as they unfold!
