About Kate Callahan Photography

The light drifting softly through your veil. His hand on the small of your back. These are the moments I want to capture for you. The quick hug you share with a beloved Grandparent. Your flower girl’s silly little giggle. Your day is so special. It will be filled with countless fleeting, precious moments. You may not even see them all. But I will. While I love detail shots … and want to give you as many posed family photos as you wish for … my heart really belongs to candid moments. Special looks. Tender touches. I’m on the hunt for those moments at every wedding I photograph. FAQs WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? I started my business in Newark, Delaware. Currently I reside in the amazingly gorgeous Hudson Valley region of upstate New York. Most of my clients are located somewhere in between those two areas. IS THIS YOUR FULL-TIME PROFESSION? Yes! I worked as a graphic artist and marketing writer for about 10 years before switching over to photography full-time. I love my job ... mostly because I love the people I get to meet along the way! I started my photography business in 2007. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? What matters most to me is capturing real moments and emotions. Weddings are so, so special. It's not every day in your life when you're dressed up so beautifully and surrounded by the people you love most in life! I think of weddings as a memory scavenger hunt. My goal is to capture authentic and beautiful images full of emotion and love. WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES & PACKAGES? I offer one simple straight-forward package that includes either 6 or 8 hours of consecutive coverage by me and a second shooter; an engagement session; and your collection of full-resolution, fully-edited images in an online gallery. From your gallery you can order prints, canvas wraps, and more. Additionally, you can download your full collection of high-resolution digital files. With those files, you can print and reprint to your heart's content. 6 hours coverage: 3,950 8 hours coverage: 4,200 HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE AT MY WEDDING? You'll have two photographers at your wedding. It will always be me … and I'll bring along a talented second-shooter. Together we'll make sure your memories are being documented in a full, yet unobtrusive manner. WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU HAVE? I shoot with an arsenal of Canon camera bodies, lenses, and flashes. I tend to keep things light … you'll rarely see me setting up lighting or in any way creating a commotion with equipment. Wedding days move fast, and I like to keep the pace so I don't miss anything! DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE? Yes. DO YOU BRING BACKUP EQUIPMENT? Yes! WE HATE HAVING OUR PICTURE TAKEN. WHAT SHOULD WE DO? First of all … let me say that I HATE having my picture taken, too! So I understand the feeling. My goal is always the same … to help people relax. To help them totally forget that the camera is there. And to provide a safe space where you can just let go and focus on each other. I provide as much guidance and direction is needed. But truth be told, it's the safe space that matters most. It's my job to figure out what you need in order to feel calm and relaxed. HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I GET? All images will be full-resolution and artfully-edited by me. Engagement session: 70 6-hour wedding: 375 8-hour wedding: 450 WILL WE HAVE RIGHTS TO OUR WEDDING PHOTOS? WILL THE PHOTOS BE WATERMARKED? You will not have any watermarks on your images. And yes, you have the rights to print and reprint to your heart's content!!! DO YOU OFFER ANY SPECIAL PRICING FOR ELOPEMENT WEDDINGS? Yes!! Please contact me for a custom quote for your elopement.
