Why hire me?
It's a legit question! You've probably seen a lot of photographers along your search and you're trying to find the right 'spark' or 'sign' that may let you know you got 'the one!'
Firstly, it's not about me. Seriously.
It's about YOU. Yes, I have an 'eye' for taking pictures and composing them in a way that may be viewed as artistic. But it's more than that!
It's an experience!
I feel that knowing who's important to you, what's important to you, and having that open communication is key to being able to deliver you a wedding gallery that 'speaks' to you!
Any one of my couples will tell you that what I do is more than
just take pictures. You can expect a lot more than someone who
shows up on your wedding day with a camera. You have your own cheerleader helping you along the way. Providing you with insight as you plan your magical day, and then working closely with you to make that we have a solid game plan!
It's having the peace of mind in knowing you have booked someone who's got you covered. For everything.
Where do you shoot weddings?
Yes! I'm happy to accommodate couples who are celebrating further away, and happy to travel for all weddings stateside, and worldwide! If you're thinking about hiring me for a destination or international wedding, please let me know so we can develop a package together!
I call myself a Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer. It's where I'm based and primarily shoot. However, I book weddings all over NJ, NY, CT, and PA!
Do you shoot weddings elsewhere?
What do you offer as part of your services?
All packages come with my creative direction & planning and a wedding photography timeline to ensure that you're getting exactly what you want! Collections are provided in an online gallery complete with fully edited high resolution images and the ability to purchase fine art prints, canvases, and more!
Packages are built with various popular options including: engagement sessions, fine art wedding albums, additional photography coverage, having a second shooter present and utilizing the selfie station during your reception!
How far in advance do you recommend couples book you?
It depends on you! Some couples decide they want to plan a wedding within a six months time frame; some plan for two years! Couples who work with me, value photography as one of the essential elements to their wedding and will typically book me once they've secured their venue.
Do you include an engagement session in your packages?
Yes! Some of the packages I've developed includes complimentary engagement sessions. Some do not to provide flexible options!
Do you offer wedding albums?
Hell yes I do! Most of my couples walk away with a wedding album and it's something I love to design for my clients! All fine art albums are customized to showcase the highlights of your wedding day!
Who are your second shooters?
I'm lucky to work with a tight crew who are all invaluable to me! Any photographer who assists is fully trained and offers something unique to bring to the table!
What happens if rains on my wedding day?
Rain may feel unlucky, but it can add a whole new level of depth to your images! Please do not view the rain as a challenge and instead embrace it! As long as it's not a monsoon out there, I will bring a change of clothes for myself, and happily shoot in the rain with you! And yes, I bring super cute clear umbrellas for you to share with your honey, and for your bridal party!
What if I want something different from the
packages you have?
Eazy peezy! The packages developed are intended to give you everything neatly bundled! But if you're interested in having more control, you can build your own package from the a la carte menu!
Don't be a stranger!! Reach out via my inquiry form and
tell me a little about YOUR story and what you want for
your wedding! We will connect (either via video, cell, or in person!) and go over the details together! You will be able to decide which package best suits your needs!
Once you've booked, be prepared for lots of communication with me!
From newsletters with 'behind the scenes' info, to help with
wedding planning, private access to a list of sought out related vendors,
we will work closely together to prepare for you big day!
We will also work together to develop a wedding day timeline
for your photography needs to ensure that all shots are caught and
nothing is missed!
You have a kick ass wedding and I rock out on your wedding day! And you will receive a small sneak peek (of roughly a dozen images) of what's to come within 72 hours of your wedding! You can use these images to post with and develop 'thank yous' as I work on your full collection. You can expect to see your entire wedding collection within 6 to 8 weeks from your wedding!
Tell me something about you two?? Where did you meet? How did you get engaged??!
