Emily is one helluva event photographer! She is highly professional, very patient and ever willing to work as a team member of the hosting family. Our event was by the waterfront on a sunny morning and afternoon. She followed the light settings of our indoor and outdoor location brilliantly, to capture some of the most vivid images of our child’s birthday party. I am pleased to recommend Emily for any such events that need candid, action, outdoors/indoors photographs that you want to cherish as memories for years to come. Can’t wait for Emily to capture more of our family events.Aug 11, 2018Verified
Emily was easy and fun to work with. She spent time learning about the event as well as post the shoot hand delivered the pictures in a usb (beautiful bag). Lots of photographers are great on the event date but beyond that it is so hard to get in touch with them. Emily is a true professional. The pictures have come out really well as well. Thankyou Emily for making our day special !Apr 29, 2018Verified
Emily was extremely thoughtful and thorough in preparing for and executing our family shoot for our daughter's first birthday. The pictures turned out soooo beautifully, and I had my gallery and files in short order. I also ordered cards through Emily and I am very pleased with the quality. We are continuing to work together to order some prints I wanted to frame. Attention to detail and professionalism abound!Jan 18, 2017Verified
Emily was amazing. She was timely, customer service focused and provided a great quality product under a short deadline.Dec 20, 2016Verified
Emily was friendly, personable and professional! Everything went just as she said it would from start to finish. She was even early to the shoot. In the end though the proof is in the pudding and her edited results were exceptional! If you hire Emily I imagine you will be glad you did!Oct 7, 2016Verified

Payment methods accepted
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer several session options including mini (30 minutes), full (1 - 1.5 hours), and event (2 hours or more). The price each client pays varies based on the type of session as well as their post-processing needs, such as wrinkle and blemish reduction. All clients receive a curated gallery of images in jpeg format for download. Basic prices include the session fee, high resolution digital files (jpeg), hand selection of images for the gallery, and editing for color correction, cropping, straightening, and minor blemish removal. More extensive editing, such as wrinkle reduction, skin smoothing, and size reduction, is available for an additional fee. Clients may also purchase images on a flash drive and a variety of photographic prints, such as traditional prints, wood prints, gallery wraps, and greeting cards. I also offer specials through out the year, such as holiday card sessions. You can find information on what promotions are available at emilykistlerphoto.com/sales-and-promotions.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start each client off with a pre-session consultation to determine what their goals are for the photo shoot (specific poses, props, and clothing), their photo editing needs (blemish reduction, etc.), and their plans for the photos (prints, albums, digital files, holiday cards, etc). I also use the pre-session consultation to identify any potential issues, such as children who are shy and may take some time to warm up to a photographer. Pre-session consultations are typically completed by phone. Post-session consultations are available as needed to review the photographs and assistance in selecting images for print.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and have completing a number of trainings through PPA. I have also completed training through the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, FL, including classes on Lightroom and Photoshop. Continuing education is key to providing the best service, and I will always be looking for more training/education related to photography.
