Welcome Friends! We would like for you to meet this amazing and talented couple of husband and wife photographers, Val + Ed of KV Photography. Throughout the year we have had the pleasure of working with them on multiple weddings and they far exceeded any and all of ours and clients expectations!! They are sweet, funny and very professional. They simply love all things photography and they will captured every single detail and beautiful moments of your special day perfectly!! As fun as it is, wedding planning can sometimes be overwhelming and your #peacocksquad would love to share some tips and inspiration with our couples. We are thrilled to be able to share some of their work with you. Learn more about this two romantic lovebirds and their company below.
~How many years have you been in business and what do you like the most about it?
We’ve been in business almost 5 years now; and as for what we like the most about it, we get to be a part of a couple’s most important day!! We get to share their emotions and their happiness, and we get to help them along the way ! 🙂
~How is working together full time feels? What is your biggest pet Peeve?
Working full time feels great!! On a wedding day, we get to have so much fun with our couple. After the wedding, we have been able to divide the work between both of us, so each one is working on a different project. We get to enjoy it so much!
A pet peeve of ours would be when couples send us extensive list for photos! Also, when a client keeps asking for a discount but still want to keep everything in the collection.
~How Far In Advance Do You Book Weddings?
We book weddings 1-1.5 years in advance.
~ Describe your photography style in three words.
Our style is the way we see the world and everything around us. And it would have to be modern, edgy and storytelling.
~How does black & white versus color come into play?
Not every image looks good on b&w, so after we finish editing a wedding gallery, we select the images we think also look great as b&w and we include them as well. Some make a bigger impact as b&w, but of course if our couple wants a different image converted in b&w, we will be more than happy to do that for them!!! 🙂
~Favorite lens you use and why?
We love our 24mm because of how sharp it is and our 85mm for the amazing compression it gives to images.
~What steps do you take to make couple’s experience with you as pleasant and memorable as possible?
Quickly responding their initial email, giving the best experience possible at the first consultation, and being there for them for everything they need throughout the planning process.
~What is your favorite moment to photograph at a wedding?
First Looks, because you see their raw emotions flowing!! First Looks of brides and their dads, seeing our bride nervous with excitement to see the first man they ever loved! The Groom as his bride is walking down the aisle, mostly everyone is looking at the bride, and so is he; that look is priceless!! Dances with mom & dad, as parents, we can’t help but feel super emotional!! And little in-between moments, like right after their first kiss, or during portraits when they think we’re not photographing. Those are the best moments!
~If you could shoot a wedding anywhere, where would it be and why?
Italy!! My whole family (Val) is italian, so Italy has always had a special place in my heart.This year we celebrated our 10-year anniversary/vow renewal in the Tuscan Hills of Italy, and we also got to photograph our dear friends’ proposal/engagement photos, so we cannot wait until we get to do a wedding there ! 🙂
~What is your best piece of advice for engaged couples?
Something we always tell our couples is to hire an amazing wedding planner ! … aka. Pavone Events! 🙂 They will take care of everything and will make your wedding so beautiful! They will get to relax and enjoy their day, and see the planner’s beautiful creation as they walk into their ceremony & reception space! 🙂 Book the big things quick (venue, photographer, DJ/band) as these are vendors that generally book up to 1-2 years in advance.
~What makes KV Photography different from other wedding photographers?
We always try to be different and find something new and unique to do at each wedding or engagement session that hasn’t been done before. Both in venues where we have worked at before, as well as new venues. It is what keeps making it so exciting for us ! 🙂
