Frequently Asked Questions

How long have you been a photographer? When did you start shooting weddings?

Kleinpeter Photography was founded in 1973, and our first job was a wedding! Over the past 45 years, we have had the pleasure of working with over 2,000 couples.


What is your photography style? 

We would characterize our style as “traditional”. We specialize in a mix of traditional and candid feeling images. We try our best to keep things light and fun; always making sure that you feel comfortable in front of the lens. The majority of the time we focus on capturing the moments as they unfold. It’s your day to enjoy with family and friends; it’s our job to document the energy and emotion! 


Where are you located?

We are proud to be based out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Our studio is located at 8336 Jefferson Highway. We’re also available for travel!


Can we meet you in person to see if you might be the right photographer for our day?

Yes, we love meeting new people and we'd be happy to get together to learn more about your wedding plans and answer any questions you might have.


What are your prices? 

Please contact us to request complete packaging and pricing information. 


How does the booking process work?

We will fill out a wedding contract and both sign and keep a copy. A $1000 non-refundable deposit reserves your date. We accept cash, credit cards, check or money order.

How many hours will you be at my wedding taking pictures?

Our packages start with 6 hours of continuous wedding day coverage, with additional hours added depending on which package you select or request. For every package, we will arrive two hours before your ceremony time, and we will not leave until you do.


How many photos will you take at my wedding?

We click the shutter an average of 2000 times at a wedding. Part of our job after the wedding is to sort through everything and condense this down to the very best images, but most of our weddings yield 800+ final images.


How long after the wedding will I get to see my photos?

There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes in post production. Therefore, turnaround on wedding photos is usually about 8-12 weeks. 


Will there be an online gallery for sharing my wedding photos via social media or with friends and family? 

Yes. Your photos will be posted online, where your guests will then have easy access to order prints from the wedding.

We really want our wedding images on a drive, do we get that?

Yes! All of our packages currently include the high resolution image files on a USB drive with a limited non-commercial print release. The photographer retains the “copyright” to all the photos, but you will have the right to print the images, make copies, and share them online. This will also include your bridal and engagement sessions. 

If my package includes a USB of edited photos and a print release, why would I order prints directly from you?

Of course you can take your USB to the corner drugstore or giant box store and print out some photos and have those back in an hour. That’s fine for smaller photos if you just want to send one of your guests a candid snapshot. But, if you plan on printing anything 8×10 or larger and want to ensure the highest quality for your prints, you may want to consider ordering through us. We work with a professional print lab that goes the extra mile to ensure the highest quality standards.


What happens if there’s a major emergency on my wedding day and you can’t be there?

Part of being a professional involves having a backup plan. Granted, in the many years that we’ve been photographing weddings, we have never been late nor missed one.  That being said, we never know what life might throw at us. If something were to happen we have three amazing lead wedding photographers on staff, along with a strong network of trusted professional photographers that we could turn to to help fill in and take care of you on your wedding day.

I’m trying to figure out my scheduling for the day of…how long does it usually take for the formal photographs? When will you do the artistic bride and groom photos?

The length of time to do the formal photos depends on the number of guests, how large your families are, and the size of your bridal party. On average, the formals take about an half hour. But try to factor in a little cushion if you can because most weddings don’t start right on time. Also, remember that you will most likely want to have some nice artistic bride and groom photos too. We're willing to work on those photos as long as you like. That’s our favorite part!


Feel free to contact us with any other questions you might have. It’s our goal to make your day beautiful and meaningful!
