frequently asked questions

"HOW MANY PHOTOS CAN WE EXPECT?"

With two photographers for 8 hours, you can expect on average 750-900 photos in your wedding online gallery. There is no cap, this is just an average.

"ARE ALL OF THE
PHOTOS EDITED?"

Yes! All the photos in your online gallery are fully edited (color correction, sharpness, contrast, exposure, etc). No need to fret over pimples. 

More extensive editing, such as tattoo removal, face swaps, or similar requests will require a fee per photo.

"DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS & ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?"

We certainly do. Payment plans are incredibly helpful when financing a wedding, and AKP wants to make your experience as easy as possible. Our standard payment plan is 30% at booking, 30% mid-way, and the final 40% four weeks before your wedding. Both credit and debit cards are accepted. (With no processing fees! Rack up those reward points!) Venmo and checks are also accepted. Please note: a 6% PA sales tax will be added onto all invoices.

"HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR EDITING STYLE?"

True to life, vibrant and crisp. A happy balance between light and airy, and dark and moody. The greens are greens, the skies have clouds and the color scheme of your wedding will be edited just like it looked in person. I strive to deliver timeless images that when you look back at your wedding photos for many years to come, you will remember the day + colors just as it was! 

Within 48 hours of your engagement session, we’ll send a link to a 15 image sneak peek of your online gallery! Two weeks later, the entire engagement gallery will be available. For weddings, you will receive an emailed link 48 hours post-event that includes at least 40 images. The entire online gallery will be accessible 8 weeks after your wedding. Additionally, a USB containing all your wedding gallery photos will be mailed to you.

"WE ARE SO EXCITED TO
SEE OUR PHOTOS!
WHEN CAN WE EXPECT THEM?"

"DO YOU TRAVEL & ARE THERE FEES?"

Yes, we LOVE to travel! We cater mainly to PA, NJ, and DE, and do require travel fees -- typically between $50-$200 -- that depend on how many miles your venue is from the 19454 zip code. 

Having a destination wedding? COUNT US IN! Inquire with more of your plans & we will create a custom collection together. 

"CAN YOU HELP PROVIDE A LIST OF PREFERRED VENDORS TO USE?"

Of course! We love helping you complete your dream wedding vendor team. Here’s a list of vendors we love. If you need any additional vendor referrals, please do not hesitate to ask us. 

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE & DO YOU HAVE BACKUPS?

Just some of our main lenses are: 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 24-70mm, 105 mm & 70-200mm. Andrea & AKP Associates all use professional DSLR camera with dual camera slots and bring back up cameras, lenses, flashes, and light stands to every wedding.

WILL WE GET A PRINTING RIGHTS & DO I HAVE TO ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?

Yes, you do receive printing rights in our contract. We highly recommend ordering your prints through your online gallery; the professional lab we work with has specific photo calibrations and there is a big difference in the final product with regardings to longevity, color and quality. 

The printing rights allow you to print & share wherever you please, though the copyright remains with AKP. (Meaning you cannot sell or alter the images.)

DO YOU ASSIST WITH POSING?

YES! 90% of our couples have never been professionally photographed together. One reason we include a complimentary engagement session in each wedding collection is so you can build confidence and learn poses prior to the big day. When it finally arrives, you’ll already be experts! (We’re also happy to help with posing for family portraits & group photos.) Should you prefer a more candid approach, we’ll step back and capture the inherent joys of your love & your guest’s experience.

DO YOU OFFER VIDEOGRAPHY?

AKP does not offer videography, however we are happy to gather a list of referrals for you!  If we have not worked with your videographer before, we will reach out to them prior to the wedding day to connect. ALL of your vendors goal is to make your wedding day amazing. That goes for your video + photo teams working together seamlessly!

HOW CAN I ACCESS MY IMAGES & FOR HOW LONG?

Photos from your engagement session and wedding will be available via an online gallery where you can download high resolution files directly. Your personal gallery will remain live for 3 years. You will be notified prior to your personal gallery going offline. A USB will be mailed to you after your online gallery is available.

CAN WE CUSTOMIZE OUR PACKAGE?

Custom collections are welcome. Oftentimes as the wedding day approaches and their timeline has solidified, couples decide to add on additional hours. Or even add an album after the wedding!

CAN YOU HELP US PLAN OUR WEDDING DAY TIMELINE?

Yes we can! We’re happy to help you build a timeline. However, we are not a replacement for a professional wedding planner and will work alongside your planners and venue coordinators. AKP will design a wedding day Google doc containing your timeline, vendor, wedding party information, and family formal photo list.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS & IS THIS YOUR FULL-TIME JOB?

I received my BFA at Kutztown University for Photography in May 2014. I photographed my first full wedding a month after graduation! For over five years, I built my business while working at a full time job. I am proud to have achieved my goal in March 2020 to go full time with AKP.

"WHO WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHING MY WEDDING DAY?"

Unless you book an AKP Associate, Andrea will be your lead photographer. A professional second photographed is always included when booking with Andrea or an AKP Associate. 

"DOES YOUR BUSINESS HAVE AN INSURANCE POLICY?"

Andrea Krout Photography, LLC is a fully insuranced business. We are happy to provide a policy by request!

In all of our full wedding collection, there is always included coverage by a talented and professional second photographer! A second photographer allows for us to photograph both prep locations separately, different angles throughout the day, increase the amount of photos in your online gallery & more.
