WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE TO WORK WITH YOU?
Directing style: I won’t make you "pose." I'll give you hands-on direction, ask questions, lead you through some actions, and get you talking. I'll be documenting as we go, as you respond to me and to each other. In almost 10 years of shooting, I've found this is how I'm able to bring out the most natural dynamic between two people. Honestly, I just want you to have fun with me.
Documenting: For most of the day, I keep it mostly documentary, just capturing what's happening as it happens.
Portraits: In addition to photos of you two, I always take formal family & bridal party portraits. I know those matter.
WE’RE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. IS THAT OKAY?
There's nothing to worry about. Most of my couples tell me they feel awkward having their photo taken, even some of the ones that look really natural. I'm here to get you comfortable and to capture your natural dynamic. So as long as you trust me and you come with an open mind, you'll be great.
Also, like I said, we're all weirdos. Let me capture your awkward weirdness too. I wouldn't want you to mask that.
DO YOU SHOOT DETAILS? & FAMILY PHOTOS?
Yes and yes.
I know you spent a lot of time on your details, flowers, decor, etc, and I'll make sure to document it all.
I also think that family photos are important, so I always take formal family photos & bridal party photos.
I just emphasize that candid moments and emotion are my priority, because I think those are the photos that matter the most.
SO HOW MUCH TIME WILL WE SPEND TAKING PHOTOS ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
This mostly depends on your preferences and timeline. We'll talk to determine how you'd rather spend your time, and plan accordingly.
Some couples don't want to spend much time away from their guests, so we do all their portraits in 30 minutes. Other couples want more alone time for themselves, so we spend 1- 2 hours away from guests doing photo stuff.
I want to make sure you enjoy yourself, so I'm happy to help figure all this out.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED? DO YOU TRAVEL?
We live between NYC and Miami and yes we travel for weddings all the time.
Your wedding may or may not require a travel fee, depending on where/when it takes place. So just get in touch and I’ll give you the details.
DO YOU USE BACKUPS?
Yes, I always bring backup digital gear, and your photos are backed up to 3 different locations.
WHEN WILL WE GET OUR IMAGES?
No later than 6 weeks after your wedding.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
All you need is a signed contract and a 50% retainer to book the date. Contact us and I'll send you the details!
