PHILOSOPHY + STYLE
Getting married is one of the biggest life events you will ever experience, and a day you've imagined since you were a child. Between the ring and the happily-ever-after comes your wedding day, a day that you will want to remember forever. Photography captures those moments that turn into memories, preserving them for years to come. Your photos should bring you back to your wedding day to show you things that you otherwise couldn't see, and to remind you of the joy and romance of the day.
I want you to love your wedding photos, and I believe all of my clients deserve the very best. I firmly believe that when you're hiring your photographer, you are not only hiring them for their vision and style, you're also hiring someone you will feel comfortable spending time photographing you and your families on one of the most important days of your life. My approach to photography is a healthy mix of lifestyle, formal, and photojournalistic photographs. I strive to create photographs that represent the pure romance and joy of your wedding day and I shoot continuously documenting all of the wedding bliss as it unfolds. I set you up for some poses during our “couple” time but I love having the opportunity of capturing those sweet, sincere moments so I just let you be you. I don't think of you as just another shot list. Instead, I invest my time in getting to know you and your wedding dreams.
So, why do I do this you ask? Well, I love love. Simple as that. I absolutely adore weddings and documenting your magical day from start to finish. I love the romance, the anticipation and excitement, the first kiss, first dance, the celebration, and all of the love and joy in between. All of the beautiful details and real emotions. To be honest, I catch myself crying at at least one point during each wedding I have the honor to photograph. You can just call me a hopeless romantic.
If you want a photographer who will laugh with you, smile with you, and most likely cry as you walk down the aisle or dance with your parents, please shoot me an email and we can have a chat to work out the right package that works for you and your needs.
One of the best parts about being a wedding photographer is that I get to work very closely with each and every couple I work with.
After our initial correspondence, we will have a face-to-fact or phone consultation to go over all of the details, you can learn more about me and how I work, and I can learn all about the wedding you've been planning and the vision you have for the day. I like to ensure that we are a perfect match! To move forward with booking, we will go over the contract, and once the 25% retainer has been received, I'm officially yours!
From the moment of our first initial correspondence until the moment you have the photographs in your hands, I am in contact with you every step of the way. You are planning your wedding and you want to ensure everything is perfectly perfect, and I am no different! I want to make sure that I keep in contact with you to make sure your wedding day goes off without a hitch!
Your Engagement Session is a reflection on you as a couple, and will be the best way for us to truly to get to know each other. Honestly, how often do you get to be dressed up and have a camera follow you around for an afternoon? I like to make these sessions personal to you as a couple. Do you love the Patriots? Bring your favorite jerseys along with you. Did you meet (or were you proposed to) on the high school football field? Let's have our session there! (true story!) Are you wine and cheese connoisseurs? Let's have a picnic-inspired session with your favorite wine and cheese! You get the idea :) The most important part to this for me is ensuring you are both comfortable, having fun and that I get to capture your love story!
About six weeks before your wedding I will send you another copy of a simple (yet detailed!) questionnaire that you can use while planning so that we can know exactly what you will need as far as photography is concerned. Having a timeline set beforehand will allow me (and you!) to know when and where I will need to be on your wedding day so there are no surprises. Between your engagement session, questionnaires and general check-ins, we will be very well acquainted by the time your wedding day arrives! We will have another meeting or phone conversation a few weeks before the wedding to create (or adjust) your wedding day timeline, answer any last minute questions, and ensure that I have all the details that I need.
On your wedding day, this is when I step in and do what I do best! I will capture the love and emotions of such a beautiful day. I will be there for all of the important moments of the day from the time your fiance sees you for the first time to your first dance, and dancing with your parents, as well as ensuring all of those little details you spent so much time creating, are captured.
Following your wedding, I will lightly retouch all of your wedding images. This is where the rest of the magic happens. I work to ensure the photos are as perfect as can be. I will share sneak peeks to Facebook within a few days of your wedding so you can enjoy a photo or two before heading off to the tropical location you chose for your honeymoon! Once your photos are ready, you will receive a link to your online gallery where you can view all of your photos in the different portions of the day and download all of the high resolution images. You will also receive your images on a USB if you choose to.
