What is your style of wedding photography?
I say my style is documentary wedding photography but it’s a little more than that. It’s emotional. I’m photographing moments that will remind you how your wedding day felt. The nervous excitement while you got ready with your sister; the anticipation of waiting for your partner during the first look; the thrill as you walked down the aisle; the laughs you shared with college friends during cocktail hour; the tears you shed during your dad’s toast. These are the moments you’ll want to remember. I make photos that will bring you back to those feelings every time you look at them.
Who are your clients?
While of course my clients are unique individuals, they typically have one thing in common – they are in love and creating a celebration around that simple notion. They want to craft an experience that is personal to them and where their guests will also enjoy themselves. They’re not super anxious about having the perfect wedding and even if the planning can be overwhelming they ultimately know that the end result (being married!) is more important than the details.
What can we expect to pay for wedding photography coverage?
I offer uncomplicated packages which start with a set amount of hours and your photos, edited and delivered to you in full resolution with rights to print and share. My pricing starts at 3500 for comprehensive wedding day coverage. I love documenting intimate weddings and elopements too. Partial day coverage can be available for these events at an hourly rate. For a detailed brochure, please contact me.
Will our photos be edited?
Yes! I edit each and every photo that gets delivered to you. I don’t have a heavy hand with my edits. My priority is that your collection of photos is cohesive and that the style of them will never feel dated. Roughly 20% of your photos will be black and white.
Do you work with a second photographer?
With the exception of a few weddings per year, I mostly work on my own. I feel it best suits my style of candid photography and helps me remain unnoticed throughout the day so that I can capture authentic moments at your wedding. Of course, sometimes it is helpful to have a second photographer and I’m happy to help you figure out if you might need one.
Where are you based and do you travel?
My home studio is in Midcoast Maine but because I have a comfy bed and safe place to keep my things in the Boston area, I photograph lots of Massachusetts weddings too. I work throughout New England and have also documented celebrations in Oregon, Washington state and California. I don’t charge a travel fee within 90 miles of Camden, Maine or Hudson, Massachusetts. For travel afar, please contact me for a custom quote.
How do we hire you?
Let’s talk! I’m based in Midcoast Maine (see above) – if you’re near this beautiful area, let’s meet for coffee. If you’re anywhere else we can Skype or jump on the phone. As far as booking goes, I require a signed contract and one-third of your package total to hold your date.
