OUR WEDDING IS NOT ON NANTUCKET. HOW DO WE GET YOU TO BE OUR PHOTOGRAPHER?
By planes, trains and automobiles ... or I'm pretty handy on a bicycle. I travel for quite a few of my weddings each year and love getting to photograph in new locations.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU DELIVER?
Rather than aiming for a certain number, I focus on creating quality images that thoroughly tell the story in front of me on your wedding day. That said, I generally deliver between 300-400 polished images, and a USB Drive of all the photos taken on your wedding day.
WHEN WILL WE RECIVE OUR PHOTOS?
Within 4 weeks of your wedding. Sometimes longer during peak season.
HOW LONG WILL OUR PROOFS BE AVAILABLE?
Your online proofs are available for twelve months from the date they are uploaded. Each additional year is $99.00.
HOW DO WE MAKE THE BEST IMAGES POSSIBLE?
I'm so happy you asked... I feel strongly that your investment in me is a sign that you want, and expect, something unique, meaningful, and yes, cool. You should know that creating something outstanding is super (super) important to me. Making that happen requires both of us to put in effort and personal investment. The best images are a result of a good collaboration. It really is a team effort. You bring the love and emotion and style and happiness, and yourselves; and I'll bring the cameras and the vision. It'll be good.
DO YOU NEED A SHOT LIST?
I do ask for a shot list for your family photos at the wedding, so we make sure no one is forgotten, and we get them done efficiently. My recommendation is to keep the list relatively brief. Beyond that, though, I prefer not to work off a list. Your wedding is a series of dynamic moments, not a static checklist. Unless there's something that I wouldn't be expecting to happen at all, don't worry about a checklist ... I've got it covered!
WHAT TIME DO YOU ARRIVE?
Always before I need to. Ideally I like to be there for the getting ready moments, on through to the dancing and shenanigans.
WHAT ABOUT BACKUP?
My backups have backups. Literally. The safety and preservation of your photographs is critical. From capture to delivery to archiving, your photographs are always protected. Backup cameras, lenses, flashes, hard drives, computers. Everything. I am also fully insured.
WHY DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
The reason behind the engagement session is for the couple and I to get to know each other before the big day; we get to work together and build a sense of trust, which I also think makes for better photos on the wedding day.
