Frequently Asked Questions

I picked up my first camera in High School and learned the basics on film and was able to process in a real darkroom throughout college. I started AKP in 2006 just before I was a bride myself. Once I photographed my first wedding, I was hooked!

We have a meeting space just North of the design district in Dallas by appointment only. Our studio is your home, your location, your choice we are on-location photographers. we prefer natural light and feel it is the most flattering light for portraits.

– weddings :: brides book us as early as 18 months in advance and wedding season is during the summer. We generally only book a limited number of weddings per year, so make sure your date gets saved by calling early!

We are seeing a lot more thought go into the theme and outfits with portrait sessions. The internet is your friend if you want to see what different outfits will look like paired together. We are happy to help you with this as well if you have any questions. Knit fabrics are the best to keep the wrinkles in your clothing from showing. Steer clear of lighter colors on areas that are not your best asset. The lightest part of the image is where your eye is naturally drawn to. We say coordinate, but not match. You can even create your own style boards on some clothing websites. Bring everything together with accessories! As for a theme, we say keep it unique to you. Imagine three words to describe your style, your relationship and your personalities combine these words to create a perfect session (with help from your photographer of course).

Most of our offerings come with a digital delivery for your print files on your own, however, each session will have a separate online gallery that is password protected for you to order professional prints from us. Tell your family and friends so they can see them as well!

Image quantities vary by session and cooperation, but for a full portrait session I guarantee around 50+ proofs
Weddings vary by shoot time and cooperation

We work all over the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex and have several ideas if you don’t have a place in mind. We will work with you to find a place that is unique to you as possible. Do you spend time at a favorite park? Where did you get engaged? Where was your first date? Let YOUR story write the script. Still stumped? We always like to suggest couples to browse through our blog and look at other couple’s engagement photos.

YES. Do it – Don’t collect $200 before passing GO! Set the curling irons and makeup down, a great makeup artist can make you look and feel amazing and your confidence will translate beautifully in the images. These are not your everyday pictures and you will be wanting to hang them in your home and give them to family, so splurge on this item. A trial run is sometimes best to make sure you love it before its time for photos.

Since we like to let you write the script for the day. We will pose you a little and let you fall into your comfort zone with each other. One of the biggest reasons we get hired is how natural our couples look during portraits. Here’s a secret….promise not to tell??? Almost all of our portraits are posed to an extent. We will guide you to look your absolute best and make you feel confident.

If you are drawn to those dreamy golden natural light portraits, you will need to schedule your session around that time of day with your photographer. There is a time of day we photographers call the golden hour Its a magic time of day when the sun is closer to the horizon and the hues are warm and soft. The light is more diffused and the shadows are longer. This time of day is a great for those romantic shots you are yearning for.
