What type of equipment do you use?
All images are taken in digital color and can be converted to black & white or sepia tone. Images are taken with Nikon equipment. A complete set of back-up equipment is available for use if necessary.
Where are you located to shoot my wedding or engagement session?
Primarily in New England, but I am available to travel outside the county as well. I heart destination weddings!
Is there a limit on the number of photographs you take during a session?
Absolutely not. I begin photographing from the minute I arrive, until the time I leave. My style is predominantly photojournalistic, however, I also include traditional formal photographs. The number of images taken during your event will vary based on the package you purchase.
When will my proofs be available for viewing?
Engagement session: within a few weeks depending on the time of year
Wedding: between four to twelve weeks (approximately)
All final images are posted online downloadable (password-protected) for viewing and placing orders.
Do I get to keep the digital negatives?
Yes, you will receive your final images in a downloadable password-protected online gallery
You are authorized to make prints from the images your download. For your convenience, I also offer online a'la carte print ordering options through your online gallery
What should I wear for my engagement shoot?
Solid colors are the best option - but please not too 'matchy-matchy'!
For the ladies, colorful heels and dresses look great in photos
Avoid distracting or trendy patterns
Please avoid wearing the color green.
Feel free to bring other outfits for variety and/or help with selection for your session
How should I do my hair and/or make-up?
Feel free to bring hair clips or elastics to change your look during the session
Make-up should be worn a little darker than your usual look. I suggest scheduling your make-up trial a few hours prior to your session or utilizing a professional make-up counter session at a local department store. Lashes always look fabulous too!
When using foundation, please select one that will not reflect the flash (any professional make-up counter can assist you with choosing the best option for you)
Avoid bringing a purse. I am happy to carry items for touch-ups.
What can I expect at the shoot?
It will be a fun and relaxing time. I will offer you a lot of direction in the beginning of your session and then scale back to minimal direction, as I prefer to capture more of the tender, spontaneous moments that are unique to each couple. Initially, most everyone can be timid in front of the camera, but I guarantee that your genuine personalities and the essence of your relationship will naturally surface by the end of the session. This experience affords me the best opportunity to create meaningful and timeless photographs for you.
Are you open to ideas and suggestions?
Absolutely!!! Please feel free to let me know of ideas and specific shots you would like to ensure they are captured. I am happy to incorporate your ideas and creativity into your session.
