Frequently Asked Questions
Below are answers to some of the questions that I am most often asked. You no doubt have specific questions, and I would love to hear them. Please contact me, or, better yet, give me a call at 603.733.4575.
How long does it take to see our images, and do we get the files?
I will usually send you a small selection of images the night of, or day after, your wedding. All of your images will be ready for viewing online in 6 to 8 weeks following your wedding, though often sooner. If part of your package, you will receive your high resolution files on USB flash drive within one to two weeks after files are posted online. With these files you receive unlimited personal use rights, including making prints, emailing to friends and posting online.
Do I need two photographers?
No, I’ve shot many weddings without a second photographer working with me. However, I firmly believe that the overall coverage is better with two photographers. It is also highly recommended if you are having a large wedding, the schedule of your day is tight, or if you have multiple locations we’ll be traveling to during the day. I’d love to speak to you about the advantages of including a second shooter in your package, and if it makes sense for you.
Do you travel? What about travel expenses?
Absolutely! I love to travel throughout New England and beyond. All travel up to 75 miles one way is included. Beyond 150 miles total is $1 per mile. Locations beyond 75 miles away may require additional travel expenses, such as hotel, meals and other incidental fees. I’d be happy to custom quote travel for your celebration.
What equipment do you use? Do you carry backups?
I shoot professional Canon digital camera bodies and L-Series prime and zoom lenses. I always have at least two cameras with me and multiple lenses ranging from 15mm to 200mm. I am a believer in redundancy, which is why I also only shoot with smaller-sized memory cards — I’m not putting all of your “eggs” in one “basket”. Additionally, I always carry at least four flashes in order to evenly light large groups and produce dramatic lighting.
I want to hire you; how do I reserve my date?
If you’ve decided that I'd be a good fit for you, I’ll provide you with an contract electronically by way of your own secure client website outlining the details of your photography package. If all looks good to you, you can digitally sign the contract. I ask for a 1/3 retainer to fully lock in the date, which can be paid via check or credit card through the website.
