+ How far in advance should we inquire for booking your services for our wedding?
As soon as you have booked your venue would be a good time to finalize and book a date with me to ensure that I will be available. Generally, couples will book 6-12 months in advance - but please do not hesitate to contact me to inquire about booking availability!
+ Are you LGBTQ-friendly?
Absolutely! Neither I nor any of the associate photographers that I work with discriminate and are open to all kinds of love, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, etc.
+ How much can we expect to invest in our wedding photography?
Most of my couples decide to invest between $3,500-$6,500 in their package, depending on their needs. I am somewhat unique in that I don't offer pre-made packages, but I allow couples to work together with me to put together exactly what they want to make sure their needs are being met. I understand that each day is completely unique, so their coverage and packages should be, too!
+ What’s an online gallery?
After I finish editing your photographs, I will provide you with a unique address where you and your guests may view them online. The online gallery also provides a mechanism where guests may purchase prints. Some of my packages include a discount for any print orders placed either through me or the online gallery. This applies to both you and your family and friends.
+ What sort of equipment do you use?
I use all professional Sony gear (camera body, lenses, flash).
+ Do we need a second photographer?
It all depends on the timeline for your day. If you are getting ready at two different locations, it’s not always possible for me to capture both of you before your wedding. With a second photographer, this allows the possibility of being at two different spots at the same time. And it’s always nice to have a second set of eyes on your big day! This allows for multiple angles of the big moments like the first kiss as well as allowing for the possibility of catching reactions from your family and friends. All of the associate photographers that I work with are professionals that are handpicked by me after seeing samples of their work and going through an interview process.
+ Do you provide engagement sessions?
Yes! Please contact me and request a copy of my pricing details which includes a rate for e-sessions. Engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know each other before the wedding and get you comfortable being in front of a camera. You will have these photographs well in advance of your wedding and they can be used for save-the-dates. I also offer personally designed save-the-date cards if interested.
+ What is the turnaround time for finished images?
In my contracts it is stipulated that you will receive your images no later than three months after the date of your wedding. I will keep you updated through the process so you know when you can expect to see them.
+ What are your policies for travel?
Luckily, I love to travel and keep my travel-related rates as reasonable as possible. Please do not hesitate to inquire about any events outside of the Vermont/Boston area! Travel fees do not apply for events within New England, although weddings outside of a 2.5 hour drive may require overnight accomodations. Destination wedding fees vary!
