FAQ - BKS Images

General Questions

Q: What is your photography style?

A: Our style is photojournalistic at the core but artistic when appropriate to capture images in a dramatic way. Seizing genuine moments  as they happen  is our cake. Creating something unique with extraordinary light is the icing.

Q: Will we receive all of the images of our session or event?

A:  Many images will be duplicates of a set and some will be test shots, missed focused or unflattering moments. Only the best images get enhanced/edited and delivered.

Q: Will I be charged sales tax even if paying in cash?

A: Unfortunately, yes. Photography sales and services are charged at the current tax rate.

Q: Do you travel? If so, is it at an extra cost?

A: Yes we travel and yes there is a cost associated with it if the venue is further than 20 miles from Bellefonte, PA. To cover our traveling time and expenses, we charge $1.50/mile for destinations beyond our 20 mile radius.

Engagement/Portrait Session Questions

Q: How much do you charge for a session?

A: Our session prices can be found by visiting our investment page. If booking a wedding with us, our engagement session is complimentary.

Q: When is the best time for a session?

A: Mornings and evenings are preferable for soft even light if the session is outdoors. The first and last hours of light in the day are typically the best. 

Q: What should I wear?

A: Wear something you're comfortable in and makes you feel good. It's preferable if solid colors are worn instead of stripes for various reasons. Try to swap the tennis shoes for a dressier appeal and avoid white socks.

Q: Should I bring extra clothes?

A: We recommend bringing two or three outfits. It's good to mix things up and sometimes one outfit may go with the location better than another. It's possible that clothes get dirty during  an outdoor session, so it's good to have backup just in case.

Q: Can we get details such as our rings photographed during our engagement session?

A: Absolutely. Once the portrait photo's are done, we can move right to any special details you'd like to have or highlight before the big day.

Q: How long until we receive the session images?

A: We try to have all of the enhanced/edited images available within one month.

Wedding Questions

Q: How much do you charge for a wedding and what's included?

A: Much of our wedding information such as prices can be found by visiting our investment page.

Q: What is the first step in booking our wedding?

A: We'll put you on our calendar as soon as you've made your decision to hire us but it won't be officially reserved until we've received your deposit and signed contract. 

Q: Once we've booked the wedding, what is the next step?

A: The next step is getting together face to face and plan, get to know each other, and ask questions. If you haven't already, this is a great time for engagement photo's.

Q: How long until we receive the wedding images?

A: We will have all of the enhanced/edited images available by 6-8 weeks after the wedding.
