how can i find out your availability?

For weddings – check out our calendar located under the availability section! We are now accepting bookings for 2017 and 2018 weddings. We book up an average of 12 months in advance! For portrait sessions – we are currently booking Spring 2017 portrait sessions. Open session dates are viewable on our availability page.

how can i see more of your portfolio?

Our website shows some of our favorite photos, but our blog has the latest and most recent projects we’ve worked on. If you’re curious to see a real wedding start to finish or a real depiction of what a portrait session looks like, the blog is your best bet. Want to see what it’s like to be in front of the camera? You can see for yourself here!

how can i book?

If possible, for all wedding bookings we try to meet each couple in person prior to booking! This ensures that you are comfortable with our photography style and approach, and also gives us a chance to talk more specifically about your wedding and what you’re looking for in a photographer. Once we determine that we are a good fit, you can officially book your date online with a signed contract and $1500 nonrefundable retainer which is applied towards your wedding photography balance.

who will photograph my wedding?

Both Kat Theis & Alicia Pyne book weddings separately for Mustard Seed Photography. Bookings for each are based on availability. The client experience is seamless for every couple, regardless of who photographs your wedding. All images are photographed and edited in the same style you see on our blog and website. Although only either Kat or Alicia will be the lead photographer present on your wedding day, both are actively involved behind the scenes and always interact in some way with every Mustard Seed client.

Individually, we only take on 18 weddings of our own each year. Additionally, we have a collection of staff photographers who join either of us at our weddings to assist or second shoot. These photographers are well-trained to shoot in the Mustard Seed style and offer images for each wedding that are cohesive with the final collection that each client receives. If you would like both Kat & Alicia to be present for your wedding (available for an additional $1000 per collection) please make this request in your initial inquiry so we can verify dual-availability up front. If you have any further questions or concerns, you are welcome to contact us directly via email at We can’t wait to capture some gorgeous images of your beautiful wedding!
