What an exciting time in your lives, the next big adventure in this crazy thing called life. I would be thrilled to work with you to capture this time in your life. I really love to help with the details that make a wedding day run smooth, I create your timeline for the day and run the day the way you envision. I take a limited number of weddings each year in order to give my time to each. I feel extremely lucky that the majority of my closest friends are former brides and grooms.
All wedding options come with digital files and the right to print. I want you to have your images! Every wedding service also includes a USB/CD custom-designed case with a USB/CD of your images. The base wedding selection includes six hours of coverage (plenty if you are on site all day), additional hours can be added as well as albums and more. Eye Sugar Photography serves the entire New England area but I have my passport and I am ready to travel!!
Wedding rates start at $3400 during peak season. Off-season, as well as mid-week discounts, are available. If you are having a civil ceremony, please inquire about a custom package. Please inquire about package options and a full listing of rates.
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR STYLE?
A.In order to be a great wedding photographer, you have to master several styles of wedding photography. There are times where I must be photojournalistic, but I need to make your parents happy with formal portraits and give you amazing artistic love shots. I'll capture the organic nature of your day and offer prompts during the times its needed. My editing style is bright with depth. Keeping you looking like you but on your best day. And for those who want sparkling teeth and maybe some slimming...I've got you covered!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS? HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED?
A.Since 2008, phew! I have been blessed to photographer hundreds of weddings, and I have loved every stinking minute of it!
DO YOU BRING BACK-UP EQUIPMENT TO THE EVENT IN CASE OF MALFUNCTION?
A.I am a type-A planner and packer. My checklist for a wedding has backup equipment for my backup equipment, including a suitcase dedicated to lighting. I gotcha covered.
WHO OWNS THE COPYRIGHT TO THE WEDDING PHOTOS? CAN I USE THEM AS I WISH?
A.That would be me, as deemed by the United States copyright law. However, you will be given an official copyright release for you allowing unlimited personal use and printing of your images.
WHAT DO YOU WEAR TO A WEDDING?
A.My team and I come dressed in black or navy (coordinating, of course). If your wedding is at the Ritz or a backyard wedding we will dress the part.
WE ARE AWKWARD; THE PEOPLE IN YOUR PHOTOS LOOK SO NATURAL AND COMFORTABLE. HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
A.Well, that is the art of a good photographer! I am funny, I promise. And I will hopefully create fun (gasp). AND I direct. I specialize in air kisses and wrapping my arms around an imaginary man to show you just how I want it done...then you make it yours!
I’M INTERESTED IN HAVING YOU PHOTOGRAPH MY WEDDING. HOW DO I SECURE MY DATE?
A.First things first, we need to meet. Either via the web in a skype/facetime conversation or in person at the studio. There is so much time and energy put into each other for a wedding day and the post work. I want to make sure I am the perfect fit for you and you are the perfect fit for me! Then after we meet, and we have decided to make it official, a $500 deposit holds your date to start the process.
DO YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE SHOOTING IN VARIOUS LIGHTING SITUATIONS?
A.Oh yes! I am a natural light photographer outdoors, a lighting master in the studio with portrait lighting, and I own a suitcase full of flashes that I know how to make light your wedding in yummy and dreamy ways. Lighting is SUPER important; it can build layers in your photographs that take them to a new level.
MY WEDDING VENUE REQUIRES LIABILITY INSURANCE FROM MY PHOTOGRAPHER. DO YOU HAVE THAT?
A.Yes, and plenty of it. Many venues will refuse to allow any wedding photographer in the door without liability insurance.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?
A.The base package includes up to 3 hours of round trip travel based on google maps. The larger package includes up to 5 hours of round trip travel. Travel will be billed at $20 per 15 minutes of travel above and beyond. Weddings beyond 5 hours of round trip travel will require one night (just one room) of hotel accomodations in order to keep us happy, awake and safe.
HOW AND WHEN DO I RECEIVE THE IMAGES FROM MY WEDDING?
A.Within a few days of your wedding, I will post a few of my favorite finished images to give you a taste online. Your gallery will be available online within 4-6 weeks. From that point, it is up to you! You will select your images you would like to have 'sugared' (aka magazine editing) and the images you would like to have on your case. Your edited images and case design will be available for proofing within 2 weeks. As soon as your images and case are approved, the case and USB are ordered and will be shipped to you.
ARE OUR IMAGES EDITED?
A.Of course! All images are color corrected, enhanced and straightened as needed. Touch-ups are included in your package that I call 'sugaring' (cute, right?). These include skin smoothing, teeth whitening, and slimming if desired. Additional editing skills like head swaps can be done but may incur a fee.
WHEN WILL WE GET OUR WEDDING ALBUM?
A.If you have ordered an album in your package (and I highly recommend it as they are stunning and a forever home for these insanely gorgeous images from your best day ever), then album design will begin as soon as you are ready. I have a system that makes it easy peasy, I promise.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
A.Pretty please, pick me! I have a passport and I love getting it stamped! If your location includes mountains, I might just pee my pants in excitement.
