Questions

WILL WE RECEIVE DIGITAL IMAGES AFTER OUR EVENT?

Every wedding and portrait session will receive high-res digital files of the final edited images hosted on a personal password-protected page. These are large JPG files that can be used to print, post, and share. Wedding galleries will be hosted for 1yr from delivery date, portrait galleries will be hosted for 4months

WHAT IF OUR WEDDING TIMELINE CHANGES AND WE NEED MORE/LESS TIME?

Time can be adjusted in wedding packages at any time. It is not uncommon for things to run a bit over on a wedding day and an extra hour is added last minute. Pricing to add additional time is $500 per hour. 

DO YOU TRAVEL AND WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?

As a Boston Wedding Photographer I am based in the Boston area ,however, I am a seasoned world traveler ranging from trips to Hawaii and Hong Kong and I will travel anywhere! I have photographed weddings in Paris, elopements in Ireland, destination weddings in Napa Valley and I've even lived in Greece. I've traveled to at least one country every year for the past 10yrs. Destination weddings and weddings outside of New England are something I strive to incorporate into every wedding season. We can work together on travel and accommodation details and I am amazing at planning budgeted trips which is incredibly helpful when working with a strict budget. 

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH EVERY WEDDING YOU BOOK OR DO YOU HAVE ASSOCIATES THAT WORK FOR YOU?

I pride myself in photographing every single booking that comes through SVP. I take my profession and responsibility very seriously and want to be hands on with my clients at all times. In the event that an emergency were to occur, I have a large network of trusted professional photographers that I can reach out to for coverage. This is a large reason why having two photographers in your wedding package is also a great way to ensure you are taken care of in case of an emergency. In 13yrs of business and over 150 weddings, I have never missed a wedding day despite any obstacles!

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE? WHAT IF YOUR EQUIPMENT BREAKS?

SVP is fully insured and I have backups for all of my equipment.

ARE THE PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO WORK WITH YOU SEASONED? DO YOU KNOW THEM?

I have a well-seasoned group of go-to photographers that I work with as my team of second photographers. Each of them have worked with me in the past, are extremely talented, and technically savvy in the photography field. All of our work embodies a similar feel and ours styles are very similar to provide you with a well rounded and cohesive final image gallery. We make a great team on a wedding day!

DO YOU UTILIZE A FILM MEDIUM OR DIGITAL?

Both! I am a "hybrid" photographer, meaning I utilize both analog and digital mediums. Depending on the weather, location, allotted time, and lighting, I choose what will serve my clients best. If I feel that film is the best fit for the day, I will pair it with my digital images. Regardless of which medium I choose to use, all of my work represents a timeless and classic style and has a cohesive flow.

WHAT IF YOU HAVE NEVER WORKED AT MY VENUE?

It is actually my preference to work at venues I have not been to in the past. I limit myself to two weddings per year at a venue to keep a fresh eye. This ensures that my creativity is at it's peak for each and every celebration.

HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT MY IMAGES AFTER MY WEDDING OR PORTRAIT SESSION?

Turn around time for weddings is 5-8 weeks. For portrait sessions my turn around time is 2-3 weeks. I do my very best to deliver galleries as quickly as possible with the utmost care for each and every image delivered.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE? 

Every event is different and I am a firm believer in quality over quantity. This is fully dependent on how many details I have to photograph, the amount of time that is allotted for photography, and how much is going on throughout a wedding day. The average number of images per wedding is 60-80 images per hour of photography. For portrait sessions, 50-100 images. 

WE AREN'T GOOD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

It's my job to make sure you look your best. An engagement session is an exciting and enjoyable way to break the ice before your wedding day. I will do everything I can to bring out your true personalities in your images and we will have fun along the way. I am determined to capture the most authentic and realistic images of you and your loved one and the only way to do so is to provide the most comfortable and fun atmosphere possible.
