Frequently Asked Questions

The Red Barn_Hampshire Collage_Amherst, MassachusettsI’m so glad you found me, consider yourself hugged! I hope the following information is helpful. 

What’s included in my wedding package?
All of my packages include me as your wedding photographer, the full collection of high resolution digital files with printing rights, and an online photo gallery to share with your guests.

How much are your packages?
My wedding packages start at $3800. Most couples invest between $5000 – $7500. I only accept a limited number of weddings each year in order to best serve my clients.

How do you approach the day?
I approach each wedding with an open heart and an eye for genuine emotion, beautiful details, and capturing what is most important to you.

I love being present for the getting ready when there is so much anticipation. I quietly watch as things unfold and when you’re ready I will capture a few portraits and then we’re off to the ceremony. The ceremony is often the most emotional part of the day and filled with so many tender moments. I capture many of my favorite candids during this time. Later in the day when folks are relaxed and ready to celebrate I can’t wait to fill my camera with photos of you and your guests having fun and rocking the dance floor.

What about family photos?
I believe taking photos with your family or special friends is very important and not to be missed. I love making people happy and try to keep this part of the day organized and fun.

How many photographs will I receive?
I typically deliver between 500-800 images, depending on the length of coverage. A good estimate is about 100 images per hour.

How long before we see our wedding photographs?
Your photographs are typically delivered between four and six weeks. Before that time, however, I will share a sneak peek on social media and a post on my blog.

Who’s your favorite singer?
That’s a tough one! Here are some of my favorites: Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Pink, Adele, Justin Timberlake, Bon Iver, and Eddie Rabbit…who doesn’t love a rainy night?

Do you work with a second photographer?
Yes, depending on the package you select. I have a couple of photographers I love to work with who are seasoned wedding photographers. They photograph in a similar style to me and are personable and friendly and are a great addition to the day.

Do you charge a travel fee?
If your venue is more than 2 hours from Northampton, MA, a travel fee will be assessed. If overnight accommodations are necessary the couple will be responsible for these charges as well.

Do you have insurance?
Yes, and I always carry backup gear.

What kind of car do you drive?
A red Honda Fit. You wouldn’t believe how much stuff fits in that car!

We’d love to work with you, how do we make that happen?
I like to meet with folks in person whenever possible, but if that can’t happen I am happy to Skype or talk on the phone. If there’s a spark and you want to move forward, the next step is signing a contract and paying a retainer of $1500 to reserve your date.
