Where are you located?
I am located in Willimantic, Connecticut, but for weddings and elopements I am often traveling to MA, RI, NH, ME, VT, and even internationally for destination weddings! I'm honestly up for traveling anywhere, and I will keep travel costs as low as possible for you!
What if we're awkward in front of the camera?
Oh my goodness don't you worry about that! So many people say this, like most of the faces you see throughout my website had been worried about being awkward. But that's my job to help you feel comfortable and look natural! I think I am pretty good at this as I know how to give direction without it being too boring/stiff/posed. I much prefer the real smiles and giggles and authentic emotion!!
What should I wear to a photo session?
I recommend wearing neutral colors and more simple patterns or solid colors rather than crazy patterns that could be distracting (unless it's part of the look you like!). Avoid big logos, wrist wear, and text. Take off those hair ties from your wrist! Leave your phones and wallet in the car, those pockets should be empty! (I can hold your keys). Ladies, I always love to photograph dresses that flow with movement!
When is the best time to take photos?
My favorite time of day to take photos is during golden hour! That'd be the hour before the sun sets. But even a little before that is nice too, especially in an area with less light and lots of shade.
Do I have to order prints through you?
I highly recommend ordering prints through my professional printing lab (which will be super simple to navigate through my online photo gallery), but it isn't required, you're free to print anywhere. The difference in quality is huge though when it comes to ordering through a lab versus CVS/Walgreens/Snapfish/etc., so just keep that in mind especially for your favorite framers!
For weddings, how do you do both photography and videography?
I have 4 arms! Just kidding, I have a team (2 videographers and an associate photographer) that makes this possible. It's really nice to all work together because we know how to help each other and not get in each other's way! I include a discount for combining both, so it will save you money to book us as a team rather than hiring 2 separate companies.
Can we meet you before our wedding?
Absolutely! I love to meet my wedding couples for coffee or during the engagement session to get to know each other more before the big day! If this isn't possible due to distance or crazy schedules, then we could always zoom or FaceTime at the very least!
