When did you start photographing weddings?

I have been drawn to photography since I was a teenager, studying journalism in high school where I began photographing for my school newspaper and loved designing page layouts. In college, I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography with my focus in portraiture.

In 1998, I was asked to photograph a friends wedding and fell in love with the whole process of documenting one of the most important days in a couples life. At that time my weddings were photographed with film on multiple camera bodies. At that time I  enjoyed the various color and black and white films that I could shoot, each allowing me a different fine art look.

Eventually I began photographing my weddings and portraits digitally, and I have enjoyed the artistic control I have gained in the process. I truly like the post wedding production of images, offering my clients beautifully edited color and black and white images. My favorite part  of photographing weddings is when I present to my clients a beautifully designed wedding album.

For 15 years I photographed weddings in Denver, Colorado and in 2012 moved to Saint Petersburg Tampa Bay Florida.

 Do you include or sell wedding albums?

Some of my wedding photography packages include an 8×8  wedding day highlights album; a book which is designed to share with friends and family 10-12 weeks after the wedding day with my hand selected favorite images.

Will you be the Photographer capturing our wedding?

Yes, I will be the Photographer at your wedding. I photograph with two Nikon professional cameras, various lenses and will be utilizing professional lighting when needed or desired. Sometimes I will be bringing an assistant to help me carry my camera and lighting gear and to help me throughout your wedding day.

Do you use a second photographer?

If you would like a second photographer added to your Kristen Sloan Wedding Photography package, I am more than happy to arrange that and discuss the additional fee. Second photographers can be great with larger weddings (100+ guests),  or when the bride and groom are getting ready at different locations.

 Are my wedding photos posted online?

Yes! Approximately six-eight weeks after your wedding day, the edited, culled and corrected images will be posted on the Kristen Sloan Photography website. Friends and Family may view and order photographs from this online gallery.

 Do you include High Resolution Digital Files?

Yes. All of my packages include High Resolution Digital Files. I edit and color correct my selected images for the online galleries. High resolution images are delivered to the client on a USB drive after the wedding day.

Do you offer engagement sessions?

I include an engagement session with some of my wedding packages because it provides an opportunity for you to become comfortable in front of my camera and for us to get to know each other. Engagement Sessions can be added to all packages for $350. Even with destination weddings, many of my clients are able to schedule a couples photography session during one of their trips to Florida to plan their wedding.

My engagement sessions generally last 1 hours and can be shot in a location that appeals to you as a couple An additional location can be added for a small fee..  I generally will guide you in your posing and then allow you to be yourselves. I try to keep engagement sessions light-hearted and fun, always looking for the best locations, light  and moments.
