So you got the ring?!
YAY! If you're seeing this page it's likely you are planning a wedding! And I am SO pumped for you!! Choosing your wedding photographer is almost as important as choosing your spouse... Well.. maybe not quite (; ha! But once the cake has been eaten, the dress has been preserved, your flowers have been pressed, what is left? The pictures are something you will keep forever to remind you of this incredible time in your life. Plus your photographer is going to be with you your ENTIRE wedding day. Following you around, calming your nerves, helping with that last minute task, basically doing anything that needs done! It is so important to choose somebody you like and will work well with. I would love to chat with you on the phone if you think we are a good fit or even hop on a zoom call! To give each of my couple's the attention they deserve I am now only taking 10 weddings per year.
I want to capture you how YOU want to be captured. Which is why I am here to help and get to know you along the way. Through questionnaires, an engagement session, and helping plan your timeline I take the time to serve each of my clients specifically. I want your love story to be told as it is.

Kaite exceeds all expectations every time she photographs us, our families, and our friends. When I was looking for photographers, it was important for me that the person I selected was personable, passionate, and responsive. I met with 4 other photographers before I had a phone call with Kaite. She was on maternity leave at the time, but even after a 10 minute phone call, I was more comfortable with her than any of the others that I actually met in person. Kaite is interested in YOUR ideal session.
Documenting your engagement is SO important! Whether it happens as soon as you get engaged or just before the wedding. Working together before your big day is a must. We all get the opportunity to work together and to get to know each other! I do send out a questionnaire to get to know you, but it doesn't compare to spending time together. Knowing how your photographer works is a key to your wedding photography running smoothly which is why I offer complimentary engagement sessions in all of my packages!
Do your packages include travel?
I travel up to an hour outside of Jackson, MI at no fee! I also service the Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, and Muskegon area with only a $100 travel fee. Please inquire about additional travel fees.
Do you offer payment plans?
I do! I require a $800 payment to hold your date with the remainder due one week before your wedding. But you are welcome to make payments as you'd like!
Do you have advice for a wedding timeline?
YES! I wrote a blog post on it (click blog at the top of this page!) But I also will help you plan this! I send out planning guides along the way along with a sample timeline for you to see.
Will there be a second photographer?
My top two packages have the option of a second photographer! If you are having your ceremony in a catholic church, if your timeline might be tight, or if you have a large bridal party, having a second photographer to assist me will be beneficial to you!
What should I wear for engagement photos?
This is dependent on where you want your photos and the vibe you are going for! But I do offer a styling guide to clients to assist in choosing outfits that photograph well together! Please ask me for more information on this!

Honestly I could write a novel on why I highly recommend Kaite, but the short of it is: anyone can point and shoot a camera, but she creates magic, happiness and memories. Her talent is unparalleled, so don't give it a second thought. Sit back, relax, and let her capture the rest.
