Hi there and welcome!! Read below to learn more about the Krystal Troutt Wedding Experience! I will share a little about my methods, my style of shooting, and ultimately how I do my best to achieve making your day as fun and stress-free as possible!
When you choose to book and trust me with your beautiful memories, you aren't JUST getting a person that knows how to take pretty wedding photos. You aren't JUST booking another wedding vendor. I STRIVE to create a one-of-a-kind EXPERIENCE for my couples! I LOVE meeting people. I LOVE getting know my couples, their personalities, and their unique story.
There is a much bigger purpose than the wedding or even the photos themselves. It is the meaning behind those photos, the marriage being celebrated at a wedding, the soul within a person....all the things you can't SEE with your eyes but FEEL in your heart and soul. I thrive on emotion and connection. The pretty pictures are just a bonus for me! My desire and ultimate mission in my business is to provide an experience for people entering a new season of life that makes an impact far greater than if I were to just show up and take some photos....to love and serve them by using the gifts God has blessed me with! My mission has everything to do with the PEOPLE in the photos over the photos themselves!

Now that you have gotten to know a little about me, my style, and my mission, you may be thinking that I could be a great fit for your wedding day! You will now fill out the contact form below! Let me know your wedding date, location, and maybe a little snippet of your hopes and dreams for your special day...oh and if someone referred you, let me know who so I can send them a THANK YOU!! After you fill out the contact form hit send and I will be in touch quickly!
At this point I have emailed you back with a few questions about the wedding. I have gotten to know a little about you and your fiance's story and you have viewed my pricing and packaging! So I have a package that you LOVE woohoo!! Now its time to go ahead and plan a day that we can officially MEET!! YAY!! At our meeting we will fine tune any details about the package, go over the wedding contract, and lastly get your retainer fee paid and voila you are BOOKED!!!
SCHEDULE YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION!
Usually couples will book their wedding anywhere from 8-12 months in advance! Around the 8 month mark is when we will start discussing ideas for your engagement session as far as outfits, time, and location! Around 8 months out from the wedding it is good to go ahead and have your engagement session scheduled for no later than 6 months out from your wedding in case you want to use them for "Save the Date" cards or wedding showers!
Eeeek its getting closer! Now we are getting to be around 2 months out from the wedding! Around this time you will receive a questionnaire from me in your inbox! You will fill this questionnaire out and email it back to me! And don't worry I am always up for a phone call to help you with any questions you have while filling it out!
your bridal portraits
Around a month or two before the wedding is when my brides normally have their bridal portraits taken! It is best to get with me at least 3 months before to start discussing a date, time, and location for them so we also have time to book with certain venues that require appointments!
ITS HERE!!! Trust me a year of planning a wedding will go by FAST!! It will seriously be here before you know it! So during your wedding I will make sure things are moving along as close as they can to the timeline that we secured 2 months earlier! DON'T STRESS YOURSELF! Things will go perfectly no matter what! But to make you feel better I always plan with you for CUSHIONS of time for each portion of the day so we can make up that time in other areas! Just relax and know that you have amazing people all around you dedicated to making this day as perfect and fun as possible!! ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS!
Because I am so excited for my couples to see their photos I have committed to editing highlights from the wedding day sharing their story on my blog! Each couple will have their blog posted in just 4 or 5 days on the very next Wednesday after the wedding!!
All of my couples receive their galleries within 1 month from the wedding date! This is where you will receive an email that your full wedding gallery is ready. You will be able to download all of your images and print/share however you please! I don't watermark my images because I believe my couples should be able to share their precious memories without words all over them! I also offer my couples to have prints and enlargements made through myself personally as I use a pro-lab where the prints are much better quality than consumer labs! However, it is completely optional!!
