You should definitely do your research before you book your photographer. If you want a certain type of aesthetic, make sure you scour the internet and wedding websites to see which photographer meets your vision. My aesthetic represents modern and classic photojournalism.
If you want to have photos that will still look beautiful and timeless, I’m your girl. It’s important to keep that in mind when you’re looking for a photographer. Trends with faux film emulation and moody photos come and go, but keeping photos looking natural with the right tones will always be in style. True to color, true to love!
I’ve photographed weddings for over 13 years, which has allowed me to capture over 500+ weddings of all sizes. It’s my full-time job and I am immensely devoted to this. Shooting weddings and capturing love is my biggest passion and it showcases in my work. You want to hire someone who has the experience and knowledge of shooting weddings because that way, they’ll always capture the images – without you having to worry about getting the “right shots”.
This is a vital question to add to your “10 Questions” list. I have full coverage insurance that covers the venue liability, our lighting, our equipment, our videography and our photo booths too!
My team prides ourselves on using the best of the best. Full frame cameras are CRUCIAL for weddings. We use Nikon D5 and Canon Mark IV camera bodies with all native Nikon and Canon lenses. By using these, we want you to have the best quality images without grainy low light and super tack sharpness. I am also a Nikon Professional Service Member with access to the latest Nikon cameras to use.
It’s important that the wedding photographer is dressed for the occasion and not as a guest. Thus, my team and I will come well groomed, wearing all black head-to-toe. Men will wear suits for Black-Tie formal. We do not want to be a distraction to your wedding, and we always want to blend in while looking professional and polished.
I always say less than 4 weeks with some sneak peeks beforehand.
I will always have a backup photographer as I have a lot of friends and associates in the NYC Wedding Photography world. Everyone we work with is equally amazing whom we can always count on for help. Also, I have personally trained a couple of my partners so they know exactly what to do as the main shooter.
This is a very important question to add to your “10 Questions” list. 50% is due when the contract is signed, and the remaining balance is due on wedding day.
My team will work with you to schedule a new date with your deposit. If a new date cannot be set, the deposit is typically non-refundable.
Lastly, make sure you ask your photographer for references or check for their verified testimonials. Once again, your big day is important and you have a lot of important people to see, with a lot of activities to do. Let the wedding photographer be your biggest support system, documenting all of those beautiful moments. Having a wedding photographer who can capture those moments is someone worth booking.
There are many photographers out there now, so you want to make sure to choose someone who has personality. This person should be a seasoned photographer because your wedding is a once in a lifetime event. There is no room for mistakes, nor room for trial and error.
