suffering from burn out?
This past year has been one heck of a year, and you know we've all been feeling it!
Do you need help taking something off of your plate? If that's a “heck yes,” we're here for you! Be on the look out for video editing in the future.
Whether you need an associate shooter (for both photo+video), a second shooter or editing services, we would love to help you free your schedule, so you can focus on bigger and better things.
Associate & 2nd shooting (photo+Video)
The past few years have been some very challenging times in our industry, but you already knew that. Fortunately, our industry values community over competition, and if the unexpected happens, we are here for each other. This is where we step in--Andrew and Christa are a husband & wife photo+video team based out of Lincoln, Nebraska. Christa is the primary photographer here and has built a wedding photography brand from the ground up, while Andrew's expertise is in video. However, his skills don't stop there, he also does photo as well.
As an associate photographer, Christa guarantees that she will handle your weddings with as much care and professionalism as she does for her own.
As an associate videographer, Christa brought on Andrew as our in-house videographer and was personally trained by Christa. He has worked with several other photographers as their associate videographer, and has second shot for several weddings with Christa. You can check out his video work below!
As a second shooter, Christa and Andrew will provide you with the same high-quality photos that you expect from yourself. Christa has shot well over 100 weddings, and Andrew has shot several weddings as Christa's second.
Whether it’s as an associate photographer, or second shooting, you can rest assured that your clients will receive nothing but the highest level of service.

How do I get a catalog to you?
First and foremost, I recommend having the latest version of Lightroom.
From there, you'll send me a Lightroom Catalog with Smart Previews. You can send this via email, Google Drive, or WeTransfer.
I can cull, edit, or both. You’ll receive the catalog with all of my updates, ready to be exported!
What if my style is different?
That is completely okay! I've changed my personal style about a thousand times (you too?).
I have edited many different styles for other photographers, and am extremely adaptable to other styles.
How do you learn my style?
What I always recommend is for you to go into your catalog and edit 4-5 photos in different light settings. Favorite those photos at a 5 star rating. This way I know exactly what your style is all about.
How do you handle payments?
Once I'm done, you'll receive the Edited and/or Culled Catalog via WeTransfer or email depending on the size. I will invoice you via Quickbooks.
What you can expect to pay?
Obviously this varies between clients due to amount of coverage, editing style and if extensive edits are requested, but here's about what you can expect.
-For Wedding Galleries that need culled and edited, you can expect to pay around $300-$400 per gallery.
-For Elopements that need culled and edited, you can expect to pay $175-$300 per gallery.
-For Family/Portrait sessions that need culled and edited, you can expect to pay $60-150/gallery.
What is your turn around time?
Usually about 7-10 days, but depending on the season we're in, it could be sooner. If for any reason that is not the case, I will let you know immediately, so you can plan appropriately. Either way, I always maintain constant communication, so that everybody will always be on the same page.
