Not only will I be your photographer, but your new friend too! When you invest in Kelsey Straus Photography, you are investing in much more than the photos you get back from your wedding day. I’m here to guide you both through this process, chat wedding planning, and ease any stressful moments that surface.

Above all it’s about building a relationship. I’m here to laugh with you, spoil you, connect with you, and remind you to breathe.

Wedding days are a blur and my goal is to capture every little moment so you can remember it forever.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do we book you?

First of all YAY! I'm so excited that you are considering me to capture your wedding day. I require a signed contract and a $1000 nonrefundable retainer (that goes towards your total balance) to secure your date. From there I'm your sidekick all the way from booking to the wedding day and beyond.

What is included with your packaging prices?

EVERYTHING! No hidden fees. Depending on your location there may be an added travel fee but lets chat! You will be delivered a full online gallery with your polished photos and from there you can download them and do what you wish. I'm here to whole process to help answer any questions and give timeline advice.

What areas do you serve?

Primarily the Pacific Northwest BUT I will travel anywhere and everywhere to capture your story.

What should I wear for an engagement session?

The best outfits tend to be neutral, solid colored, comfortable clothing. Look on Pinterest or Instagram to be inspired but know the environment plays a huge factor. I'm here every step of the way to help you figure these things out.

I/my partner and I aren't very comfortable in front of the camera, is that okay?

Of course!!! This is probably so much more common than you think. There's no rush or pressure whatsoever. My goal is to capture my clients exactly as they are and each couple/client will receive a different level of prompting. Its all a part of the journey.

How many photos do you deliver?

This can be altered by a lot of different factors but a good ballpark is roughly 100 photos per hour of wedding coverage. For an engagement session anywhere from 75-150 photos delivered. A portrait session 50-100 images.

What rights do I have to my images?

You can share and print your photos as much as you'd like. I ask that you give me credit on social media when able. Adding filters or retouching photos is strictly prohibited but cropping is okay. I recommend ordering your prints through PASS (my online gallery delivery) to maintain the best quality but ultimately its up to you!
