What’s your history and experience as a photographer?
When I was young, I always had an obsession with taking photos with my late father’s gadgets and polaroids. As the years went on, I started photographing concerts and nightclubs. Soon after, one of my friends from high school contacted me to be her wedding photographer. Her family loved the photos so much that they hired me for their other daughter’s wedding. The rest is history.
What’s your turnaround time?
We guarantee in under 4 weeks or less, you will have your photo gallery! Sometimes even sooner depending on our production schedules. Which is one of the fastest in the industry! We like to surprise you with some sneak peeks too!
Does your company provide videography services?
We do provide videography services and aerial drone services!
Have you worked at my venue before?
This is one of the FAQ s I get asked a lot and I am happy to answer. We photograph at many venues across New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond. If we have not worked at your venue, we will do our research and schedule a walk-through with your venue. The goal is to get familiarized with the venue before your big day. We will scout locations inside and around your venue, in order to find the best light and settings.
What if it rains on my wedding day and I do not know what to do?
My team and I have worked in all different conditions, including both hurricanes and power outages. We always have a backup plan. For example, we worked at a wedding where Hurricane Sandy had just passed through the city. Needless to say, the wedding went on with backup generators and was one of the most unique weddings to date!
What happens if you’re sick? Do you have backup photographers?
I work with a team of a couple of excellent lead photographers who are also capable of taking my place if I was unable to work. Which in all my years of experience, it has never happened. *knock on wood*
Q: Do you offerdestination weddings? A: We have photographed weddings all over the world. Susan even helped organize a destination wedding in Mykonos, Greece, which turned out to be a huge success!
Q: How long does it take for an album or albums to be produced? A: Production times vary, but usually within 4-6 weeks from the time you select your images. You will receive two layout change approvals before it goes to print.
Q: How many photos can we put in an album? A: We recommend that you select about 40-50 photos. I will organize the entire layout of your selected photos and will place them in chronological order. Each album amounts to each page being about a quarter-inch thick.
Q: Do you keep a backup of our images? A: We do keep a backup of all your pictures on our external drives and an online cloud-based storage site. We will host photos in the online gallery for up to a year.
Q: Do you have liability insurance for our wedding? A: Yes we have full coverage of our photography, videography and photo booth. We will provide documentation to your venue about a month before your wedding day.
Q: We would love to meet with you at your studio, but we are very busy. A: If we are unable to meet in person due to your work schedules, I am happy to be available for a Zoom Call, Facetime, Skype or chat over the phone. This is the perfect opportunity to discuss details, questions not answered on the FAQ, and your wedding date availability.
Q: Can you work with us on pricing and budget? A: Don’t let budget and pricing steer you away from booking one of the top wedding photographers in New York. 😉 Reliability and having a solid team of trusted associates is extremely important. No need to price shop and get overwhelmed with the hundreds of photographers/videographers out there. If we are unavailable, we have plenty of excellent colleagues from our trusted network we can refer you to.
Q: We are very shy, uncomfortable in front of a camera. How can you help us? A: I do get this question a lot. As an introvert myself, I am very familiar with how to get you comfortable with taking pictures. Giving directive prompts and making sure you feel at ease and not like having a stranger pointing the camera at you. Everyone has praised me on how easy I made it for them after their session or wedding! Parents love me too!
