Some adjectives that have been used to describe my work are: vibrant, natural, fresh, cheerful, romantic, sweet, light & airy, among many others.
To get the most accurate sense of my style, I recommend that you look through my portfolio on my website. If you’d like to see more photos and full stories from past weddings & events, I recommend looking through my blog at linpernille.com/blog. To see even more photos, you can look through full galleries from past weddings & events at linpernille.pixieset.com
My goal is always to capture the mood and style of the wedding or event to the best of my abilities, while making the subjects feel calm and comfortable throughout the day. I try to get to know my clients' personalities so that I can reflect & translate those personalities through the photos.
All of my second shooters and I understand the importance of being attentive yet unobtrusive throughout the day. We try our best to “see but not be seen” (i.e. choosing our placement carefully throughout the day in an attempt to be respectful to the guests and not take away from their experience). We always dress professionally and try to fit in with the dress code of the wedding/event. We try to be inconspicuous during ceremonies, speeches, etc. but assertive and clear during the posed/group/family shots.
Every photo is edited for the optimal exposure, color temperature, contrast, etc. before being delivered or posted. I also lightly retouch some of the photos as needed. I usually include a variety of close crops vs wide shots, black & white vs color, etc. in order to add depth & diversity to the final collection of photos that you receive.
I prefer to edit my photos to look clean, crisp, and timeless. I try to stay away from trendy, heavy-handed editing effects, which I find can sometimes be distracting or detract from the content of the image.
Any photos that are selected for being printed (i.e. canvas prints, flat prints, albums) are welcome to any extra editing or retouching that you'd like.
Yes! From start to finish, from the booking process until the day of your wedding/event, I will be the photographer that you meet with, email, call, etc. and I will be the lead photographer photographing on your big day.
If you choose a package that includes a second shooter, he/she will be the “second in command”. If your timeline includes coverage of the "getting ready" stage of your wedding day, he/she will usually be photographing at the groom’s location while I am shooting at the bride’s location. All of my second shooters are qualified, professional photographers with tons of experience shooting weddings & events.
Absolutely! I offer a variety of packages designed to fit various levels of coverage and various budgets. Each package is fully customizable and inclusions and exclusions are always welcome. Contact me to discuss more details, or we can schedule a time to meet in person!
If you are having a city hall wedding, vow renewal, elopement, or if your wedding or event has less than 40 or more than 300 guests, contact me for specific pricing details.
All taxes & fees are included in the prices that are listed as the package prices.
(There are no hidden service fees, credit card fees, etc.)
Prints and albums are typically discussed and ordered a few months after the wedding/event and are separate from the cost of the photography coverage. Taxes & shipping for prints & albums are calculated once you decide the exact quantities and sizes that you'd like.
A 20% deposit is due at the booking/signing of the contract. Once the contract & deposit is received, your date will officially be reserved and therefore the deposit is non-refundable. The remaining 80% payment is due at least 24 hours prior to the wedding/event. To pay by credit card, you may request an online invoice. Mailed checks must be received before the day of the wedding/event. Cash or check payments may also be made upon arrival on the day of the wedding/event, before any photography takes place.
The time that photography begins and ends depends upon the number of hours of coverage that are included in your package. The beginning & end time will also be stated in your contract. We typically arrive a little bit earlier than the "Photography Start Time" to get situated.
Please be aware that any events you would like to be photographed should take place before the photography end time. All photographers will leave at the photography end time - if we are asked to stay longer, an overtime fee will be charged, as stipulated in the contract. No photos will begin to be processed or edited until all payments are received.
I understand how eager couples are to see their photos after the wedding, so I always post/send some sneak peeks a few days after the wedding. I dedicate a lot of time to editing & refining every single photo you receive, so it can take up to 6-8 weeks to finish all the photos, but of course I always aim to deliver sooner! Highlight videos are usually finished being edited within 8-12 weeks.
The final high resolution photos will be mailed to you on a flash drive. The photos will also be posted to an Online Gallery where friends and family can view the photos and order prints directly through the site, if they wish. All packages also include usage rights to the photos, which means that you are welcome to post, print, and share the photos as you wish.
After you receive your photos, you're welcome to order a custom designed flush mount album, flat prints, or canvas prints. Contact me at any time to discuss details and design options!
I have been a freelance photographer since 2007, shooting everything from portraits to product photography to weddings and events. I fell in love with wedding photography when I shot my first wedding at 18 years old. When I was 20 years old, during my junior year in college, I knew that I had found my passion and decided to incorporate my photography business. Since then, I have been lucky enough to capture countless weddings of a wide variety of cultures and styles. I’m very grateful to be able to do what I love - there’s no greater honor than to be able to photograph the happiest day in a couple’s life and for that reason I take my job very seriously and pour my heart into everything I do.
I use full-frame Nikon digital cameras and a wide variety of prime lenses. I also use on-camera as well as off-camera flash for certain settings. For videography, I also use various microphones and audio recording equipment as well as video lights.
Yes. Many venues require that outside vendors have Liability Insurance - I am happy to send a copy of the certificate to the venue/event coordinator, if requested.
