Do you shoot destination weddings or elopements?
That would be a definite yes and something I would love to book a lot more of!
I consider a destination wedding or elopement to require substantial travel (either by car or plane) for both myself as well as the couple and their family/friends. I would need to know when and where, and which package you would like to book in order to give you an accurate quote. The price would consist of whichever package you would like as well as the travel fees (gas/airfare/hotel). My passport is dying for some new destinations!
If you have questions on an elopement or a destination wedding, please feel free to reach out. I would love to hear all about your plans!
I am also available for travel to other states regardless if the couple is traveling or not. Please inquire as I would love to book a lot more weddings outside of my general area!
Will you book a micro wedding?
I LOVE micro weddings! What is a micro wedding you may ask? It's not an elopement but it's also not a full day wedding either. This would consist of 20 people give or take, no venue but maybe you want to rent a beautiful log cabin in Stowe, VT with your immediate family and a couple of your closest friends for a long weekend! You would only need 2-3 hours of coverage to shoot details, getting ready, ceremony, family and portraits.
I am in love with these small weddings because they are so laid back and it's more intimate and private. It also allows me much more time for portraits than I normally get to have during a full wedding day when there are so many different moments and people to capture.
I will absolutely book these types of weddings but only on a weekday or Sunday if it is during the busy season (June through October here in VT). I keep Saturdays open for full day wedding coverage.
What kind of gear do you use?
I am a Canon girl! On wedding days I shoot with two full frame bodies and a variety of prime and zoom lenses (but I especially love my 85mm and 35mm). I use flash for indoor and reception photos once natural light is limited and it starts to get dark.
Should my fiancé and do a first look?
In my personal opinion, yes, always yes! First looks have many benefits to them, especially if you have a big bridal party.
What is a first look? This is when you and your soon-to-be-spouse see each other before the ceremony. This helps ease nerves, take portraits when make-up and hair are fresh, one-on-one time before the craziness of the day begins, I could go on and on...
It is most important when you are having a bigger wedding with a bridal party because it allows us to get most, if not all of the bridal party photos done before the ceremony. That would only leave family formals to take after the ceremony, and more time for you both to enjoy cocktail hour or your reception with all of your guests! Or time for even more portraits! If your wedding is un the summer when the sun stays out late, I ALWAYS ask my couples to make time during golden hour to sneak away from the reception for more photos. You can never have too many portraits!
Should I have two photographers at my wedding?
It depends :)
In my opinion, I can and have handled most weddings on my own and have not felt the need for a second photographer to be there. I do shoot with two camera bodies at a time, with different lenses on each camera. This allows me to capture an abundant amount of photographs that look different from one camera to the other. I move around a ton during the ceremony (providing it's at least 10 minutes or more) to get different angles and perspectives.
The only times when I highly recommend having a second photographer (one whom I hire and bring with me) is if you are having a very large wedding. What does a large wedding look like? In my professional experience, if you are having a bridal party with more than 12 people and a guest list of more than 150 people, having a second photographer makes things run a lot smoother. If getting ready photos are important for both parties, I am usually with the bride while the second hangs with the guys. A lot more can get done in a shorter amount of time when there is a second photographer, as I cannot be everywhere at once (I wish I could!)
The overall benefits to having a second photographer is more final images delivered, more angles and perspectives, and probably most important is less time to make during the day for photos as multiple things can be happening at once.
Do I have to order prints through you?
You can if you would like, but I release print and social media rights to all of my clients. To insure a good quality standard on items such as canvas, metal print, albums or USB's, I do recommend going through your photographer for those needs. For basic lustre or glossy prints, I do not recommend printing from a drugstore or Walmart as they tend to ruin the colors. Never select the option to color correct your images when ordering from an online printing lab. Online labs I use are Mpix and Nations Photo Lab. I have had great product and service when ordering through them!
What do you specialize in?
I am investing the majority of my time and photography shooting weddings, couples, families and portraits. I love doing the occasional boudoir session as well (whether to make yourself feel good or as a gift for a significant other/spouse). The only thing is I don't have my own studio, so the cost of a space is left up to my client. I have experience shooting at a variety of indoor locations found on Airbnb as well as a couple of the more luxurious hotels in my area.
How many photos do you deliver?
This all depends but over the last several years I am very confident in my quality and quantity of final images delivered. I do not limit the number of images I deliver for any wedding or session however, I can guarantee an amount that there would be no less than.
For wedding days when it is just me and for an 8 hour wedding, I deliver no less than 600 but usually it's anywhere from 800 to 1500 photos. It all depends on your details, bridal party (or not), family formals and how much portrait time you dedicate into your timeline.
For one hour family sessions, I deliver no less than 80 photos but most sessions range from 125 to 250 photos. Again, it all depends on how cooperative kids are being, how many people are involved and how many combinations/poses we do together.
What is your turnaround time for photos?
For weddings September through October, my turn around time for full galleries is up to 60 days. I always deliver an abundant amount of sneak peeks within 48-72 hours after each wedding. Weddings June-August can typically expect their full galleries to be ready within 45 days. Any weddings that take place during non-peak season (November - May) can expect their full galleries within 30 days or less!
Hour long sessions can expect their full gallery within 2 weeks but during the busy season it is usually up to a month.
