Twenty years from now, when you look through your wedding album and see all those precious, emotion filled moments… you won’t be thinking about the cost of your photography package. I promise.
I have walked with so many couples through their wedding days, so I know with all too much clarity how fast the day goes by. One minute, you’ll be buttoning your dress or slipping on your suit and before you know it you’ll be air-guitaring to the DJ’s last song.
Your photographs will be the one aspect of your wedding day that will allow you to re-live those moments forever.

Q: CAN WE FOREGO THE COMPLIMENTARY ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
A: Of course! Buy why would you? Engagement sessions are offered exclusively to my couples because it is a valuable part of The Wedding Experience. It allows my couples to get comfortable with our specific approach to posing. (or non-posing. LOL) Consider it practice for the big day! Since the session is complimentary, we do not offer discounts if you choose to forego it.
Q: DO YOU TRAVEL?
A: Hell ya! I've worked in various places including, VT, MA, ME, SC, DC and Haiti.... just to name a few!
Q: TRAVEL FEE's?
A. Travel expenses are already incorporated into the fee's for weddings taking place at most New England locations within a 2- 2.5 hour radius AND for engagement sessions taking place within a 30 mile radius from 03466. Further distances will be discussed at your consultation. Boston weddings may require additional fee's due to misc. costs associated with shooting there. That said- you will never be surprised by any fee's. I'm very transparent.
Q: WHY DOES THE COST OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY VARY SO MUCH BETWEEN PHOTOGRAPHERS?
A: The cost of wedding photography is kind of like fingerprints – it’s different for everyone (or in this case, every photographer). There are so many variables in the mix that it’s next to impossible for you to compare 2 photographers to each other – you simply can’t compare apples to oranges.
What we can say; however, is that some photographers (especially those who are first starting out) may be cutting costs in certain areas. Insurances, extra hard drives and online storage for backing up files, professional level backup gear, continuing education – these things are all part of a photographer’s cost of doing business. If you’ve found someone whose price seems too good to be true, it might be because something is missing behind-the-scenes that could put your images at risk.
Q: COMPLIMENTARY ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS-
A: Complimentary Engagement sessions are scheduled Weekdays. Weekends are reserved exclusively for weddings or my family time. Thank you for understanding! :) Sessions must take place within a 30 mile radius from my home office, otherwise additional travel fee's will apply.
Q: DO WE HAVE TO BOOK IN PERSON?
A: Nope! Most of my couples are busy professionals! Not to mention they live all over the country. I do require a phone
conversation though. It's important that we determine if we are a good fit for each other. I want to make sure I can provide you exactly what you are envisioning for your wedding day memories, and I want to make sure our personalities mesh! (after all... I will be by your side more than your spouse on your wedding day! LOL... you should like me. haha) After we chat- I'll send over everything required to reserve your date! (quote, agreement and invoice!) Everything is handled right online. Easy peasy.
Q: OUR VENUE REQUIRES THE VENDORS TO CARRY INSURANCE.
A. No problem. All legit, legally registered businesses should have insurance. If your venue requires proof of such. . .no prob!
Q: WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE?
A: Before I indulge in my gear- it's important to know that the quality of an image comes mostly (99%) from the photographers knowledge about lighting, posing, composition etc. (and- time given to the photographer to get the images you expect- but that's a topic for another day! LOL) So no matter how fancy the camera is- if the person operating the camera doesn't understand photography- the quality of the image won't be any better than one produced by any ole point and shoot camera that you can buy at Walmart. Now, don't get me wrong... the gear matters, otherwise I wouldn't invest 10's of thousands of dollars into it. But it's important to understand that so much more goes into the craft of photography- than just the gear.
That said- I shoot with top of the line professional Canon gear. My three camera bodies are my, Canon 1Dx Mark II, Canon 5d Mark 4, and the Canon 5d Mark 3. I have (4) 600 EX RT flashes. For lenses I have 70-200mm f2.8L IS III, Canon 100mm f2.8L Macro, Canon 24-105mm f4 L, Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art Series.
Q: ALBUMS! YOU OFFER ALBUMS!?
A: Yes I do! Nothing compares to experiencing your wedding photos in an actual printed album. As convenient and share-able as digital media has become, it’s also ever-changing. On the other hand, printed photographs; they last for lifetimes and carry with them the nostalgic feelings of the fleeting moments they represent. I wouldn't be doing my job to my fullest if I didn't offer albums to all my clients! Which is why we’re proud to offer a line of exquisite, museum grade archival albums that feature minimalistic and contemporary aesthetics that perfectly complement the elegant and timeless imagery we create.
