I take on no more than twenty weddings each year in order to ensure that I get to know each of my couples well and to provide the highest level of personal service and guidance throughout the planning process. My goal is to feel like a dear friend so that you'll feel completely at ease by the time your wedding day arrives. That ease helps me capture who you really are - you're most genuine and unguarded selves - so you can look back years later and realize you still walk holding hands and look into each other's eyes in the same way.
Can you hold the date for us?
Dates are reserved with the signing of the contact and payment of the booking fee. However, if we have met and you're still in the process of making a decision, I won't give your date away without reaching back out to give you 24 hours to decide before I give the date away to another couple.
All payments can be made right online with a credit card or I'm happy to accept a check as well.
I have general liability insurance and equipment insurance and I’m happy to provide proof of insurance to your venue if needed.
I currently do not charge travel fees for New England or upstate NY weddings. I’m more than happy to venture beyond New England as well, and in that case I do charge a travel fee that is adjusted on a case-by-case basis and allows me to cover the cost of my journey as necessary to best capture your wedding.
Do you work with a second photographer?
Always. I believe that the real love story is often found in the small moments and the moments in between. Having a second photographer with me for the day allows me to get two perspectives in the big moments, as well as capture more of the small moments that tell your full love story.
We'll work together prior to your wedding to create a rain plan for all of your formal portraits. We'll find an alternative you love and the most important part is knowing we have a plan in place, even if we don't need to use it!
How long does it take to Receive our photos?
Your photos will be ready for you 6-8 weeks after your wedding date. I’ll post a preview for you within 48 hours of your wedding though, so you won’t have to wait 6 weeks to see how gorgeous you looked on your wedding day!
When I get home from your wedding I upload all of the images on an external hard drive and back them up onto the cloud. When your images are ready, the final edits are uploaded into an online gallery that serves as a third backup.
Generally, you'll receive between 75-100 images per hour of coverage. Every photo you receive is edited to ensure the highest quality finished product.
As the artist who created the images, I retain the copyright. However, all digital products include personal printing rights. That means you're welcome to share them digitally and in print.
IF MY HUSBAND AND I HAD TO DO OUR WEDDING OVER AGAIN AND COULD ONLY HIRE A SINGLE PROFESSIONAL, IT WOULD UNDOUBTEDLY BE LYNNE. LYNNE IS PROFESSIONAL, RESPONSIVE, ORGANIZED, AND INCREDIBLY TALENTED. SHE TOOK BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS OF OUR REHEARSAL DINNER AND WAS UNOBTRUSIVE AND PROFESSIONAL IN THE VERY INTIMATE SETTING... AFTER THE FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION, MY DAD REMARKED THAT HE EXPECTED THE PHOTOS TO BE MUCH MORE PAINFUL BASED ON PREVIOUS WEDDINGS HE HAD ATTENDED (WHICH IS HIGH PRAISE!). LYNNE HAS AN ENVIABLE MIX OF EFFICIENCY AND POISE- SHE NEVER MADE ANYONE FEEL RUSHED BUT SOMEHOW MANAGED TO STAY AHEAD OF SCHEDULE THE ENTIRE DAY DESPITE A LAST MINUTE CHANGE IN PLANS DUE TO RAIN, AND WAS FLEXIBLE WITH SPONTANEOUS GROUP PHOTOS AT THE RECEPTION.
We had to rethink/reschedule a lot of our wedding plans when COVID hit. Lynne was hands down the most wonderful person to work with throughout our whole wedding planning (and re-planning) process. At the initial outreach phase, we had a Facetime call to get to know one another and talk about holistic plans. She then worked super closely with us to put together a custom photography package for our wedding that fit with our vision...In March when we made the decision to scale back our 200-person wedding to a family-only event, Lynne was the first person we called to see if she would still photograph the day, and of course, she was so wonderful throughout the entire re-planning process. She captured every single important moment for our family - both candid and planned portraits...I love her photos SO much because they are extremely natural, candid, bright, and airy. She perfectly captured everyone's joy throughout the day and I can't thank her enough.
Where do I begin? We love Lynne! She is so talented and a blast to work with. We worked with her throughout the wedding planning process, and she made everything so easy. We had so much fun with her at our engagement picture photo shoot, and the pictures were beautiful. She helped us work through some wedding-day logistics--she was spot on with all of her recommendations. On the day of the wedding, she was AMAZING. Lynne was cool, calm, and collected in all the chaos. Her vision for the pictures was beautiful. I trust her entirely, and recommend her full-heartedly! Thank you for everything, Lynne!!
Lynne was hands down the best vendor we hired for our wedding. I met Lynne when I was a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding the year before I got engaged. The photos she took were beautiful. She also blended with the crowd during the wedding. A pet peeve of mine is when photographers are in your face. Lynne somehow captured all of the moments of the wedding without drawing a lot of attention to the fact that she was doing so. I had no hesitations booking Lynne for my wedding after this experience but I couldn't have anticipated how critical she would end up being. When our wedding was upended by COVID-19, Lynne was amazing. We were constantly changing our plans and Lynne just rolled with it. She was able to capture our micro wedding on our original date while taking all of the safety precautions very seriously. Our pictures were beautiful and our families and guests loved her.
LYNNE WAS A DREAM TO WORK WITH THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PLANNING PROCESS, WITH FREQUENT CHECK-INS, PERSONAL CALLS, AND VIDEO CHATS! LYNNE IS SUCH A THOROUGH PROFESSIONAL AND MADE US FEEL COMFORTABLE AND SPECIAL FROM DAY ONE. SHE EVEN SENT US THE SWEETEST SURPRISE TREATS AND NOTES, WHICH WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TOUCH. THE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT LYNNE TOOK FOR BOTH OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION AND FOR OUR WEDDING TURNED OUT MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED. DURING OUR WEDDING DAY, LYNNE WAS FLEXIBLE AND MADE A REAL CONNECTION WITH OUR ENTIRE BRIDAL PARTY. SHE MADE THE EXPERIENCE FUN AND RELAXED, AND HER PROFESSIONALISM AND KNOWLEDGE HELPED TO MAKE OUR DAY EVEN MORE SPECIAL AND STRESS-FREE.
