How many years have you been working?
Will you be photographing my wedding?
Yes, I photograph all weddings!
Do you usually work alone or do you have a second photographer or assistant present?
Depending on the package you book, you have the option for a second photographer.
What type of equipment do you use?
I use professional Canon gear including a full range of prime and zoom lenses, lighting equipment, and modifiers. I always have backup equipment with me.
Will you be photographing with a digital or film camera?
I take digital photographs.
Will you be able to do a mix of color and black and white photographs?
All images are hand-edited using the latest professional software. Select photographs are converted to black and white.
Do you photograph engagement sessions? When are engagement sessions scheduled?
Engagement sessions are typically scheduled for weekdays or Fridays. In the rare case that it cannot be scheduled for a weekday, I do my best to schedule the session for the weekend and work with you to choose a mutually convenient date and time.
Will we be able to receive a digital copy of the images?
Yes, digital files are included in my packages.
How long after the wedding will the photos be available to us?
Images are available 4-6 weeks after the event.
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes, and I am able to provide a certificate of insurance if your venue requires it.
Do you charge travel fees?
Depending on the location of your wedding, a travel fee may apply. This will be discussed in our introductory conversation.
What happens if there is an extreme emergency and you cannot photograph our wedding?
In the case of an extreme emergency such as severe illness or injury and I am unable to photograph your wedding, the second photographer becomes the primary photographer, or fill-in photographer will be scheduled if a second has not been booked. If a second photographer has been booked and becomes the primary photographer, a new second photographer will join them. All my second photographers are professional photographers that meet my strict standards of training, quality, professionalism and similar shooting style.
What forms of payment do you take?
I accept cash, check or credit card. A signed contract and a 50% non-refundable deposit is required to book and secure the date and time.
What happens if I need to cancel my wedding or change the date?
In the event of a cancellation or postponement of the wedding, the 50% deposit you paid to secure the date and time is non-refundable.
Can I print the photographs on my own? Do I own them?
While you are allowed to print the photographs that you are provided, I remain the copyright holder of all photographs.
How do you deliver the images to me?
I will provide you with an online gallery from which you can download the digital files.
Can we order prints through you?
You can order prints directly through the online gallery I provide to you.
Should I buy an album?
I strongly believe that wedding albums are equally as important as the digital photographs that you receive. For one of the most important days of your life, your photos deserve to be held in your hands so you can experience the day over and over again. Click here to view my album options.
Do you retouch the images?
My edits include color correction and toning (my magic editing skills that give them the Allegra glow), and removal of noticeable blemishes on the bride and the groom.
How many pictures will we get?
There are many factors that play into the number of photographs I will deliver to you, including the duration of the event, the number of guests and whether or not you book a second photographer. For an average 8 hour wedding, you can expect anywhere from 600-1000 images.
Can I get a copy of the raw images?
I provide you with fully edited, high-resolution Jpeg images to ensure that each image represents the high quality and standards of my business.
How do you handle family portraits?
I work with you in advance of the big day to come up with a day-of timeline that leaves enough room for family, couple, and wedding party portraits. We will work together to create a list of essential portraits so that nothing is missed on the big day.
Do we meet before we book you?
Meeting before you book me is a great way to get to know one another and look at sample albums so you can feel and see the products. My studio is located in South Glastonbury, CT. I understand it isn’t always practical to meet, especially for out-of-state clients, and FaceTime or phone calls are a great way to get to know one another before the wedding day!
