Introduction: K. Vadelnieks Photo, based out of Northampton, Massachusetts, is a wedding photography company. Owner Kimberly has loved taking photos since she was a child, using her camera to commemorate special moments. She is passionate about helping her clients bring their creative vision to life. This professional goes the extra mile to find a way to capture the essence of your relationship on camera.
K. Vadelnieks Photo favors elopements and more intimate celebrations, using their client's love story as inspiration for how they work. Kimberly shares her images through a website, so you can enjoy them wherever you are. If you would like to print out your favorite photos, she is happy to recommend a printing company. This photographer is also a digital artist and is able to professionally edit each image to give you the best keepsake of your day possible.
About the shoot…
Every time I see someone say they just want “candid” shots during a session, I tell them what I tell everyone. Photographers call those shots that look like natural candids “plandids”. We guide and pose you in a way that feels natural for everyone and looks very candid in camera.
Of course there’s also a journalistic style of shooting, which is more candid and typically used for capturing large corporate events and parties. What I find most clients want for their session is more along the lines of the “plandid”.
Please know when you select for “brief events”, that’s a 30 minute mini shoot which is $150 and yields 5 creative edits. For a full hour long session, that starts at $250 and yields 10-15 creative edits.
About the photos you’ll receive…
We carefully select the best shots from your session to edit creatively to suit the style that you’re looking for. Your photo session will be uploaded into a digital album so that you can easily download and share your photos. If you would like to request a USB, I can accommodate you for an additional fee. The majority of (professional) photographers will not share raw files with you, myself included. If you’d like me to edit more photos than what my packages offer, I’d be happy to do that for an additional fee.
For weddings and elopements….
I love shooting elopements and intimate weddings! Please reach out for my elopement pricing if this is what you’re looking for. My elopement pricing starts at $300 for one hour. This is because the yield of photos for elopements is much higher than a regular hour long photo session (and much more editing).
For larger weddings, which require more time and a second shooter to ensure we capture all the best moments, my wedding pricing starts at $850 for 3 hours.
