Let’s connect, share a drink, (wine perhaps?) and tell me all about your wedding day and whatever incredible, fun-loving, beautifully elegant, and/or badass way you want it documented
Begin Your Experience —
I intentionally take on a limited number of weddings per year so that I can give my couples the experience and attention they deserve during the engagement season! From start to finish, you will receive a boutique and personalized service.
WHEN YOU WORK WITH ME I PROMISE:
•I’ll keep it real with you in every stage of planning.
• I’ll be your calm in the storm when you feel like things are getting too crazy.
• I’ll be that friend who will step back to let you fully enjoy your wedding day, all while I capture it for you
•to remind you, it's okay to let go of "perfect" and plan the wedding of YOUR dreams...
I can tell you is this: I invest a lot of intensive time, providing a hands on, customized, and personal service, to each and every couple.
Additionally, I make extra investments on the business side to ensure my couples images are safe, my gear is always in tip-top condition, and my skills are continually enhanced. When all this is said and done (and paid for. ha) You are the one that benefits.
I understand the photography is an investment, but I also know how important it is. (afterall, it's the one aspect of your wedding day that will outlive us) This is why I don't take any chances when working with couples who are trusting me to document their one and only day.
What makes you worth the investment?
I'm a huge advocate for prints! While Digital images serve their purpose... nothing compares to holding your images in your hands.
For right now- all you have to do is get your wedding day reserved. And I'll be with you every step of the way. I'll also start getting you information about different print products and albums that are available to you. That way... after the big day get here, you will have an idea of how you want to showcase your pictures!
When it comes time to make your final payment- you will have the opportunity to upgrade to get print credits at a discounted rate. That will cover the cost of an album or any other print product you may want. :)
Tell me more about The print and Product Credits after the wedding!
Absolutely! I travel more often than not for weddings. I've shot Wedding in PA, SC, ME, NH, MA, CT, NY and the list keeps growing! Travel fees are included for most new England locations, and for weddings taking place in the Low Country of SC. (Beaufort, Hilton Head etc)
Please note, that while travel is included, City locations (Boston, NYC etc), and high end locations (Newport RI, the Cape etc), the hotel fees tend to be more expensive. While I make every attempt to reserve reasonably priced hotel, I make location a priority. (I want a hotel close to the wedding party. ). Therefore, minimal travel fees may apply.
Engagement Sessions include of 1 or so hours from my home office.
Is Travel/ACCOMMODATIONS included in the price?
You’ve got enough on your plate—our thorough and detail oriented approach ensures you’ll have more photos than you could ever need or want, but we do recommend bringing to our attention any special people, planned moments, or unique details you’d like to capture that we might not know to anticipate.
On your wedding day, please have the rings, dress, shoes, jewelry and any other heirlooms you’d like in the photos in the bridal suite. We will typically spend the first hour of our coverage shooting your details and final hair/makeup.
Do I need to make a "Shot List" of my desired photos?
My second shooters all bring a lot of talent and enthusiasm to the table, so naturally I recommend having one along. Realistically though, I know that budgets exist and that the added cost of a second photographer may be more than you are wanting to spend.
As a rule of thumb, if you have more than 125 guests coming to your wedding or a wedding party larger than 10(including the bride and groom), I would recommend considering adding a second shooter to your wedding package. Although I shoot many weddings solo- adding an additional shooter offers many couples that added level of peace of mind. Depending on the scale of the event, I may suggest having a third shooter or assistants as needed.
Do I need a second shooter?
Absolutely!! (But believe me- you will appreciate it!!) I'm actually a pretty laid-back gal, but when it comes to your wedding day- preparation is the key to success. Don't worry- I'm not stressed or anxious. . . just organized. This allows me to bring relaxed energy to your day. You will receive a few very detailed questionnaires about 3 months from your wedding date, which covers everything! After I review the details, I put together a final timeline for your day, and we schedule our final meeting. We plan and prepare so that you can just relax and let-go on your wedding day!
ARe you Organized?
ONE. 1. Uno... That's it... only one. Many of my colleagues will shoot back to back weddings. I simply can't offer my clients the very best doing that. Once I am booked for your wedding- I won't take any other jobs that weekend. This allows me to fully focus all my attention to you, on the most important day of your life.
As for 'Each year' this changes, but for 2022, I’m only accepting 25. I do this so I can give my couples the best experience and photos possible and not spread myself thin. I focus on quality, not quantity. I’m not in this for the money, I’m in this for you.
How many Wedding do you shoot in a weekend?
Absolutely not. In fact, because of how efficiently I work on the day of and the help I give you in preparing your family picture list, most family photo sessions on a wedding day are complete within 10-15 minutes. (The time it takes though also depends on your family members promptness and cooperation level)
That being said, when crafting a timeline- I do add in plenty of "buffer time", which typically will set aside 30-45 minutes for these family portraits. This just allows us to have a little wiggle room in case things are running behind.
Do we have to spend an hour taking famiily photos?
Like every encounter you’ll have with me, I make it as convenient as possible. Booking is simply a matter of you saying “I do!” and we’ll send over your "booking proposal." Everything is handled right online. This booking proposal will have everything you need to officially book.
It’s just a few clicks and we’ll be going steady!
How do we book you?
Absolutely. Many wedding venues require their vendors to be insured. Rest assured- I take my business (and your photos) very seriously. I'll be able to provide your venue with proof of insurance when requested.
ARE YOU INSURED?
