FAQ

 

What inspires you? 

What is the best way to contact you? 

Tap that "Contact Me" button below to fill out a form or email me directly at hello@gracekadams.com to get the conversation started! After that initial inquiry, we can set up a time to chat over the phone or meet up for a cup of coffee. 
 

Do you use a second shooter? 

Sometimes! A second photographer may be added to any of my wedding collections. While I am completely comfortable with shooting on my own, I generally recommend a second photographer for weddings with over 50 people. This provides more flexibility with timeline planning, volume of images you will receive, and different perspectives on key moments throughout the day. I am always happy to discuss whether or not a second photographer would be beneficial to you!
 

Do you back up my images? 

My cameras write to two memory cards automatically, and I immediately back up all of the files to two harddrives following an event. Finished images are also archived in online galleries and guaranteed for two years following the session or event. 
 

Do you travel?

Yes! Having lived in both Juneau and Anchorage, I travel often within the state of Alaska and frequent Southeast Alaska and the PNW. I have also completely fallen in love with travel overseas, so if you are dreaming of eloping in the Scottish Highlands or on a tropical island, just say the word and we'll make it happen!
 

What is the cost for travel to my wedding?

This varies depending on location, so shoot me an email and let's talk about it! Generally, I only require that airfare, lodging, and accommodations be covered. 


How many photos do you deliver?

You can expect around 60-75 for portrait sessions, and 400-650 for weddings is typical, while elopements average about 200. These numbers vary by event and hours of coverage.

Following a wedding, my goal is get your images finished up and online within 5-6 weeks. During peak season turnaround time may be closer to 8 weeks depending on volume of work.
 

Do you travel for other photo sessions (aside from weddings and elopements?) 

I am happy to! Anniversary adventures, lifestyle family sessions, portraits, and couple's sessions
 

Do you offer albums, prints, and tangible goods?

All sessions, elopements, and weddings include your images in an online gallery with print shop access. Tangible goods offered include professional quality prints, canvases, wooden heirloom boxes, and leather bound albums. 
 

What if I want to print my own images? 


Are you a cat or dog person? 

 

 

 

 

Ok, we're sold. How do we make it official? 

50% of your package total along with a signed contract will officially reserve your date! I understand completely that photography is a significant investment and am happy to offer payment plans as well.

What kind of equipment do you use? 

I use professional Canon gear and always have backups.
