10 Questions with Kristin Zagorac

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Hello! I'm Kristin! I started photography when I was in high school, and fell in love with portraiture. I went to Edinboro University to study photography and graduated in 2014. I interned with a wedding photographer in Erie for a year and found a new love. Weddings combine my love of portraiture and my love of documenting happy joyful memories. I only shoot about 10 weddings per year now. I want to focus my talents and time on quality work vs quantity. If I take on too many weddings, I get burnt out and I want each and every one of my clients to have all of what I can offer. I also specialize in high school senior portraiture, and family portraiture.

I am happily married to my husband Beege (Brian Jr but no one in the family calls him that), and we have a little spunky jack russell terrier named Wally. We like to go hiking, birding, and exploring national parks in our free time.

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

I have been shooting weddings since 2014 when I first interned with an Erie wedding photographer. I have photographed well over 100 weddings.

3. How would you describe your photography style?

My photography style is classic with a kick of artsy fartsy. I like lots of color, but not too much that it makes it look tacky and unskilled. I love accurate color in my work. I see a lot of photographers out there who rely on filters and film emulations for their edits, and it completely changes the color and clarity of their images. I want to document your day just the way it was. So to really just describe my style in a few adjectives, I'd like to say that I am bubbly, fun, , bright, colorful, and natural.

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

At least a year out to get the best options. Most talented photographers book up quick. I don't book out further than 2 years though.

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

Basic - $3600
8 hours, just me

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

Yes! I don't have a team, I just work with a select group of local wedding photographers. It depends who I get based on their availability with their own weddings.

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

I charge $1 per mile beyond 100 miles for weddings.

8. Are albums or prints included in your packages?

No. They're additional and I have lots of beautiful options for albums and print products!

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

I deliver within 1-3 months of the wedding date. I deliver the edited digitals via an online gallery where the client can download all the image with one click. The gallery will be up for 1 year. You can order print products right from the gallery. Also, if you choose to add on a USB, I deliver them on there as well. For an 8 hour wedding, you can expect anywhere from 500-1000 digital images.

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

If you cancel for any reason, the non-refundable deposit will be kept. All remaining payments for work that has not been completed will be refunded. No refunds at all after wedding is photographed.
