WEDDING FAQ

 

 

Q • HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

A • I am a creative documentary wedding photographer. My goal is to provide you with photography that is not only stunning, but also carefully and evocatively tells your story of your long-awaited wedding day. When possible, I create these photos without interfering, as I want your photos to be an authentic representation of your wedding experience. I do, however, direct family portraits and couples portraits so that everyone involved looks fabulous. I provide a mix of color and black and white photos—these color treatments are determined based on what I believe looks and works best for each image.

Q • WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? DO YOU TRAVEL?

A • I am located in Bangor, Maine. And yes, I do! Although many of my weddings are in midcoast and southern Maine, I do book weddings elsewhere and I’d love to travel to wherever you would like to take me.

Q • DO YOU WORK WITH A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

A • Yes! My top tier collections include a second photographer, who will typically capture the groom getting ready, alternate angles of the ceremony and the reception, the reception details, cocktail hour (when time allows) and they will assist me when needed.

Q • WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER?

A • I offer albums, canvas gallery wraps, and prints.

Q • DO YOU OFFER SMALLER COLLECTIONS FOR ELOPEMENTS?

A • Yes! I love photographing elopements, especially in Acadia National Park (but take me anywhere)! Contact me for availability and pricing info.

Q • HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO RECEIVE MY PHOTOS? AND HOW MANY WILL I RECEIVE?

A • In order to ensure that your photos are carefully chosen and edited beautifully, expect your images to be ready in eight to ten weeks.

The number of photos that you will receive will depend on a myriad of factors- the length of your coverage, if a second photographer is included in your collection, and the general nature of your wedding day. My goal is not to provide a specific number of photos, but rather to capture the spirit and story of your wedding day. You can usually expect to see 60-80 photos per hour in your gallery, which is about/more than one photo a minute!

Q • I’M REALLY INTERESTED IN HAVING YOU PHOTOGRAPH OUR WEDDING. HOW MUCH DO YOUR SERVICES COST?

A • Wedding coverage begins at $4900. All collections include high resolution images, a print license, and an online gallery. On average, couples spend $6100-$7900 on their photography collection. Please contact me so that I can send you information about my collections and the products that I offer!

Q • OKAY, WE DEFINITELY WANT YOU TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR WEDDING! WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?

A • High five- I’m glad that we’re a match! Once you’ve decided on the collection you would like, I will draft up a contract and send it to you electronically. Once you’ve signed the contract and have paid the retainer, you'll have booked me for your wedding date! Now relax— that’s one less thing you need to worry about!

Q • ARE YOU CURRENTLY BOOKING 2020 WEDDINGS AND ELOPEMENTS?

A • I am only booking new 2020 couples who are either eloping with a very small guest count outside, or those who are taking strident measures to ensure they're reducing the risk of COVID-19, such as having all guests tested (and ensuring every guest receives results prior to the wedding), requiring the use of masks, following and respecting all current Maine CDC guidelines, etc. If you are unsure if your event fits within these guidelines, feel free to contact me and I can determine if I am comfortable capturing your event.

 

Please keep in mind that 2020 wedding photos featured on my website and blog may not reflect my own practices to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Q • WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO CURB THE SPREAD OF COVID-19?

A • I am wearing a mask at all times, using hand sanitizer, washing my hands frequently, and social distancing. Unfortunately, I will not be giving any hugs or handshakes this year, but you can expect lots of air high fives.

Q • DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH SAME-SEX WEDDINGS? DO YOU SUPPORT BLACK LIVES MATTER?

A • Yes, YES, YES!! If this response bothers you, I might not be the right fit for your wedding day.
