My approach to photographing your love combines a mixture of documentary storytelling with naturally posed portraiture. I love the timeless and effortless look of film and the way film is unparalleled at processing light and capturing the true moments and emotions of the day. Because of that, I create photographs using both digital and film formats. My focus is always on the authentic moments and emotions that make your day and your love story unique and beautiful.
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 will never 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.
About eight weeks after your wedding, you'll get to relive your wedding day in an online gallery brimming with photos. And we'll design your heirloom wedding album so you can relive the day for years to come.
You two will say your vows, hug your family, dance with your friends, and have the best day ever! I'll be there to capture it all beautifully, to make sure your dress is perfectly arranged, and help things go smoothly all day long.
A week or two before your wedding we'll schedule a final conversation. It's a quick touch point to make sure you know i'll be exactly where i need to be to capture every emotional moment.
three months before your wedding I'll send along a questionnaire to help you finalize your timeline and plan your family portrait combinations. This way, you won't worry about them on your wedding day!
throughout your time planning, I'll send along tips and things to consider that will ensure your wedding day goes smoothly and your photos are both timeless and flawless. you'll also receive my bi-weekly newsletter with additional food for thought and photo inspiration.
We'll schedule a call six months before your wedding to talk through your day-of timeline. We'll ensure you have the time you need for the photos you want and answer any questions that have come up.
we'll laugh and chat and have a blast as You two snuggle in front of my camera! We'll pick a spot that's both beautiful and meaningful to the two of you. and We'll create magic together to honor the very special time that your engagement marks in your relationship.
