Where are you located? Do you travel? 

I'm currently living with my husband and pup in Springfield, OH, but HECK YES I travel! Travel will be included in the price I give you in the brochure! Just let me know ahead of time where you're planning to have your session! 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you photograph families, seniors, or boudoir?

I do! I only offer a select amount of sessions a year during certain times of the year, so it's important to reach out sooner rather than later to get the ball rollin'!

What is your availability?

The best way to find out my availability is to inquire! Click "BOOK ME" or email me at kailasarenephotography@gmail.com

How will you keep my photos safe? 

When I get home from a session, I back up photos on two different hard drives, both of which I have backup plans for (meaning I have a pre-paid service plan with the makers of the hard drives if photos need to be extracted). I also have multiple cards I shoot on, so I can always go back to the original card if all else fails. 

When is our final payment due?

Do you offer payment plans?

Final payments for weddings are due 30 days before your event, and for sessions final payments are due at the beginning of the session.

I do! A 50% deposit will still be required, but after that if you'd like to break the payments up monthly we can do that! 

How much is it to secure my date?  

A non-refundable retainer of 50% is required to secure your wedding date. This is because I get multiple inquiries a year for the same date, and turn down alot of weddings/sessions once a date is secured. 

If someone else is paying, do they sign the contract?

Nope. The contract is between me as the photographer and you as the client, meaning all payments will be considered going through you, and you will have financial responsibility in signing. 

How many photographers are included?

Is an engagement session included? 

Have you worked at my venue before?

I'm the solo photographer for sessions and weddings. However, for weddings you have the option to add on an additional photographer. 

Engagement sessions are included in all full day wedding packages (8 hours, 10 hours, and 12 hours). Each session is an hour long and includes a location up to 50 miles from Springfield, OH. You can add on more time, or add on an additional travel fee for engagements outside of those parameters. 

If it's in Dayton, Columbus, or Cincinnati, there's a good chance I've worked at your venue! HOWEVER even if I haven't, I'm great at insta-stalking venues and finding all the good spots before I get there, as well as what the lighting situation will be like. I come prepared no matter what the situation looks like though, so I'm ready for anything! 

Do you offer video?

I do not, but I can recommend some amazing vendors to you who specialize in video, just ask me after you book! 

You will receive at least 60 images per hour in the gallery mentioned above.

I do not. Editing photos is a HUGE part of my art. Giving out my unedited raws is like a chef giving out uncooked ingredients to her customers. No one wants raw chicken. It's taken years to develop my personal style, and that is what you'll get when you receive the photos!

How do I receive my photos? 

Photos are delivered in a Pinterest-like gallery that includes both high resolution and web-sized photos. From there, you can download, share, or purchase photos from the gallery!

Do you give out RAW or unedited photos?

How many photos do I get?

Will you photoshop us? 

I photoshop out things that are temporary- zits, makeup on your dress, etc. Otherwise, I'm there to capture the moment exactly how it is! That means if you want me to edit out a panty-line or birthmark, it will be an additional cost.

For sessions, you will receive photos after a maximum of 4 weeks. For weddings you will receive photos after a maximum of 3 months following your wedding. Usually it's quicker than that, but I will give you a better idea at your session!

When will I receive my photos? 

What if it rains?

For sessions, I leave it up to you whether or not you want to play in the rain with me! If it's storming or if there's a blizzard, we will reschedule for another time. For weddings, things like that are too unpredictable. That's why there are bubble umbrellas and tequila shots :) 

What if you cancel? 

It would take something big for me to cancel, or as I say in the contract "an act of God". If it's for a session, we will find a mutually agreeable date to reschedule for. If it's for a wedding, I will find someone of equal professionalism and ability as me to capture your day, but I will still edit the photos so that the style of photography you paid for will remain the same.

What if I cancel? 

If you cancel all together, you will lose the deposit. I allow one reschedule free of charge as long as we find a mutually agreeable date, but the second reschedule (for weddings) will have a rebooking fee of $400. For sessions, it's the same, except there will be a $50 rescheduling fee the second time you reschedule.
