Why two photographers? Is that ever intrusive? With two photographers, you get two perspectives, an extra person to help organize formal portraits, and the guarantee that more special moments will be captured. As we've been working together since early college, we've developed an easy, fun partnership, and we really enjoy working together. We work to remain quietly engaged, and find that even at intimate weddings we are able to easily blend in.
Do you offer formal portraits? How long should we set aside for these? While photographing the real moments is our ultimate focus, we also believe that you and your family should have beautiful formal photos as well. We'll work with you to determine the best time to schedule these, and give you advice to make them go quickly and be fun for everyone. Generally we try to limit formal groupings to eight different groups. We encourage couples to schedule twenty to thirty minutes for group portraits.
Are you LBGT allies? Absolutely!
Where do you live? We live in a timber-framed house we designed and built ourselves surrounded by apple trees in Tunbridge, Vermont (right smack dab in the middle of the state).
Do you offer albums? Albums are the best way for us to showcase our work, and a wonderful addition for your home and gift for your family. We understand that especially after your wedding, you may be working on a tight budget, so we offer a variety of solutions with different U.S. and Canadian-made album companies so you aren't locked into one kind of album. Let us know if you're interested (before or after your wedding, there's no wrong time to inquire!), and we'll talk options.
My reception is in a dark, indoor location (barn, restaurant, etc.). How will you handle the light? We believe in taking advantage of natural light when its at it's best, and artfully utilizing off-camera flash in darker situations. We use a few unobtrusive flashes that produce the cinematic feel seen in many of the reception photos in our portfolio.
When should I book a photographer for my wedding? What is required to book you? As couples plan their weddings earlier in advance, we encourage you to book your photographer as soon as you've found the right match, especially for fall weddings. Typically, we book most of our weddings six to sixteen months in advance, though we've booked as far as two years and as as close as a few weeks in advance.
Are you insured? Do you have backup gear in case something fails? Yes and Yes! We're happy to provide proof of insurance, and we carry extras of all our gear (we use Canon Cameras, Flashes, and Lenses).
How do you edit my photos? Once we select the best photos from your celebration, we carefully color-correct, sharpen, and adjust the light on each photo we deliver to you. We provide a color and a black and white copy of each high-resolution photo, which you can download, print, or share as much as you want.
How long do I have to wait to see my wedding photos? We'll post a preview of your wedding on our blog within a week of your wedding, and we'll deliver your high-resolution, edited images within a month of your wedding date.
My wedding isn't going to be in Vermont- do you travel? Yes! We travel to New Hampshire and Massachusetts at no cost (we're only thirty minutes from New Hampshire, and only two hours from Boston). For other nearby states (New York, New England, Maryland, and Pennsylvania), we add a $300.00 travel fee. For weddings farther away, we'd love to negotiate a reasonable fee that would allow us to photograph your wedding and go somewhere new.
Do you offer family portrait sessions? Can I see examples? Absolutely! We offer custom packages for our neighbors in the Upper Valley region of Vermont and New Hampshire and often photograph past clients during our regular trips to Boston. Feel free to contact us and request sample galleries through our inquiry form on our website, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting you and your family.
