I would describe my style and approach as primarily documentary and photo journalistic story telling with a touch of creative portraiture. I believe people shine most beautifully when they are being natural. Being among family and friends on the most important day of your life has a lot of shine in itself so that directing or posing isn't necessary. On a wedding day, I love the creative portraits that are done before the ceremony and the couple's session after the ceremony. The portrait sessions are loosely directed so that you are comfortable and confident while we capture a natural feeling.
Yes, absolutely! We love to tell stories of families and couples with a fun documentary style approach. Also, I love to help start-up companies in their branding and I shoot often for yoga professionals.
The Aimee K Team are a group of professional and established photographers who regularly collaborate with Aimee K to provide a seamless photography experience with a documentary and photojournalistic approach. Team photographers attend workshops hosted by Aimee K to provide a seamless photography experience with a documentary and photojournalistic approach. When you hire the Aimee K Team, you would have one primary photographer on the day unless you choose to add-on a 2nd photographer (highly recommended). You have contact directly with your photographer prior to the day. Aimee K edits your images with the light and colourful style inline with the Aimee K brand. All of the team speaks a native level of English as well as some German, Russian, Spanish and many other languages so that we can accommodate your family and friends in their native language. The Aimee K Team is a great option when Aimee is already booked out but you want that same look, feel and approach. It's also a great option for a more limited budget as the collaborative nature of a team approach offers a lower price point than Aimee K Exclusive packages.

We want you to be confident and enjoy your day and love when you do that! We like to get to know my clients prior to their day. This is challenging as 99% of our clients are destination weddings so we get to know each other through an online questionnaire and videoconference. It's great to put a face to a name and to have a feeling of familiarity before sharing those intimate moments. Ideally a client trusts their photographer and allows them into their inner circle on the day and also gives space to work creatively. The only "shot list" that we follow on the day is the group shots. Otherwise, you'll find us light on our feet and in front of the action while being transparent and adaptable.
Every wedding is unique in itself but typically an 8-10 hour package will cover your full day!
If the groom is getting ready in a different venue, if you have more than 100 guests or if you would like a more diverse gallery then a 2nd photographer add-on is highly recommended. A 2nd photographer covers the guys getting ready, the venue decor prior to the ceremony, the guests arrival, and the aperitivo while we are doing the couple's session and group shots. They typically leave when the guests are seated. This means that your primary photographer doesn't need to leave early for the guest's arrival, you have more angles of the aisle walk and ceremony as well as coverage of guests during the aperitivo. It's highly recommended and the gallery is well-rounded!
We primarily are natural light photographers. We want to carry gear that is non-intrusive and not distracting as our aim is to blend into the surroundings so that we can capture those natural moments. We'll use natural light for as long as physically possible. It's highly recommended to work with your planner and venue on securing proper ambient lighting. We're happy to make any recommendations if you have questions about light set-ups as we're familiar with most of the major venues.
Even in this exceedingly fast digital age there is process to arriving to your final images and we want to love your gallery before sending it to you. Within 21 days you'll receive a set of sneak peek images that tell the whole story of your day. We find clients love to have this and it takes the edge off waiting for the entire set. Within 90 days you will receive the full set in high resolution sent by a download link!
A booking is secured once an agreement has been signed online and a deposit paid to hold the day. We book out far in advance so if you are considering booking but unsure of which package, it's best to book in at a basic level and you can always upgrade at a later time. That way, we are all yours!
