10 Questions with Nicole Randall

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Hi ,
My name is Nicole, I am the owner and Lead photographer of CreativeEdge Photography LLC
I have been photographing peoples memories for over 16 years!;)
I was raised in a tiny little town in northern Arizona, with horses and I was always in the mountains exploring.
Today I utilize that knowledge by taking clients up mountains and capturing awe inspiring photos they can cherish for years to come.
I love nature/animals and being outside.
I combine that with my love for photography passion and here we are;)
Each shoot is an adventure and I’m always up for an adventure !

2. How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings have you photographed?

I have photographed hundreds of people over the years I don’t even know how many, I started in 2006!;)

3. How would you describe your photography style?

I often describe it as an art form.
Because I consider my eye with the camera an art form as well as my editing style in post processing.
I like to say “I paint with the sunlight” and it’s true!

4. How well in advance should couples book their wedding photographer?

In a perfect world? A full year out, to get your desired date in my calendar. However, don’t be afraid to ask even it’s last minute, you never know. Just might have it open, it’s happened!;)

5. What are the different packages that you offer and which one is your most popular package?

I book by the hour, so my wedding packages start at $1599. For 4 hr package that’s local.
And go up to $6,500.
It really depends on if I have to travel/book airfare/lodging/travel fee/permits and hire assistants etc.
a lot of variables go into different size weddings. No two are the same;)
I would say my Diamond package $2999.
Is my most popular, that’s a local rate with 2 photographers and 8hrs coverage.

6. Are you the wedding photographer who will be shooting on the wedding day? Who else is there in your team?

Yes, when you book , I will always be the lead and I will always bring a team with me depending on how big your wedding is to cover all our bases;)
Usually 100 guests at a wedding has 2 photographers
If it’s 300 guests we will bring 3 photographers etc

7. Do you charge a travel fee? For what distance? What does that cover?

Yes, $299 added travel fee if in the state outside of Phoenix metro city limits
If it’s out of state it’s $599.
Out of the country tbd depending on the circumstance and permit fees etc.
this helps cover airfare/food/gas/lodging for 2 possibly more photographers.

8. Are albums or prints included in your packages?

Yes!;) I have an ala carte menu where you can add these on to your packages.

9. How long after the wedding will the couple receive the images? How will they be delivered?

We aim for quality work over quantity.
My mantra is under promise and over deliver-everytime.
Usually delivered during wedding high season 8-10 weeks
But we usually deliver much sooner than that.
The editing process is intense and can take weeks depending on what was agreed upon before booking. We can literally change the sky for you if needed ;) got a blemish the day of your wedding? No problem , we can fix it!

10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?

All located in my wedding contract.
Basically, If you cancel no refund because I have set that date aside for you and can no longer offer to get paid by another wedding.
If I cancel 💯 refund.
Note- I have never cancelled in 16years;)
This is my career, I pay taxes, commercial insurance etc.
