Our prices vary by your wedding needs – one or two photographers; duration of your wedding; location. We’ve done weddings that lasted two days and other weddings that only required one hour. We’ve done weddings locally in Boston, Cape Cod, and all over New England; and we’ve done destination weddings. We can accommodate your requirements. Please send us an email and we will send over the detailed pricing guide.
Photography is so subjective. We hope that whoever you hire to photograph your wedding is based on the portfolio that they have presented, because generally the historical work is a representation of their future work. Having said that, our photography style is dependent on what we are covering at the time. If we are photographing getting ready or ceremony or first dance or cake cutting, we allow the event to unfold in its true nature – to capture the fleeting moments of a bride’s nervous exhale before walking down the aisle, the anticipation of the first look, the shadows at play against the bride’s face, the momentous architecture of the cathedral ceiling in context of the bride and groom at the altar. Some photographs may not be anything but to serve as documentation of the day. If we are photographing a first look or formal portraits, we choreograph the moment and provide the assertive instructions that are needed to get the best pose. Our overall objective is to be as non-intrusive as possible.
Some weddings have a lot of moving parts and require two photographers. When you hire us both, we work to cover different vantage points and to ensure documentation of two different events at the same time. For instance, we would split up between the locations where bride and groom are getting ready. Together, we also assist each other, such as coordinating formal family portraits or couple portraits. We have also done numerous weddings as solo photographers. Our portfolio showcases work where we photographed solo and together.
It’s been truly an honor to photograph weddings of all religions and faiths, all throughout New England. We’ve done Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, non-denominational weddings – in churches, outdoors, and in homes. For same-sex, Cambodian, Chinese, Vietnamese, and mixed race couples. At the Top of the Hub and in a lighthouse; in grand hotels, country clubs, parks, and boats. We love the diversity and enjoy learning about the traditions. Every time we do a wedding and we listen to the vows, it re-affirms why we do this work as husband and wife. It couldn’t be more meaningful than to document other couple’s most special day as a married couple.
We typically have the product available online within 4-6 weeks and mailed within a week after that.
We provide two sets of images: high resolution images and low resolution images. Both are without watermarks. The reason we provide two sets is that the high resolution allows you to make large prints and the low resolution is easier for sharing online.
A custom, professionally-designed album is also included in the deliverable.
We want to deliver as many different photos that define your wedding as possible. The number of photographs depends on coverage, type of event, length of event (dancing, ceremony, etc). Some weddings are condensed into a shorter timeline while others last longer. Some weddings only have a ceremony and others have dancing into the wee hours of the night. The number of photos not only depend on the length of the event but also on the variation of the event. To explain, if we are hired to photograph an 8-hour wedding and two of those hours account for dancing, then the number of different photos that we could do for dancing is limited. This is why we recommend discussing your schedule and ensuring our time is spent well. Average number of images with a second photographer is 1000 for a 7-hour day.
We review every single image and edit every image by hand, without bulk editing. The images that do not make the final cut are images that are redundant, un-flattering to the client, or have been photobombed.
The raw, unedited files are not available as part of our deliverable. We stand by the high standards we employ in editing the files and the review effort in culling the product.
We would recommend for us to start during the getting ready portion of the day and finish with about an hour of dancing coverage. This way, we would have the most variety of photos. Allow about an hour to an hour and a half for the formal portrait session – including the portion with family, bridal party, and the couple alone. Prior to the wedding day, we would request a list of family photos you would like to have (this would include siblings, grandparents, etc). We would also recommend having someone familiar with both families calling out the individuals for those shots to expedite the process.
We specialize in wedding photography, but we have done baby and maternity shoots for our prior clients. We do this because we form a relationship with our clients and as they go through their life changing moments, we are honored to continue to be a part of those occasions.
