WEdding Photographer Connecticut

The Wedding Experience

  With all this in mind, I have carefully crafted my wedding and engagement packages based on the priorities clients have asked for most often so I can be sure to provide a service that will be valued. Most importantly, when you hire me as your wedding photographer, you're getting a partner for your wedding team. I'm there for you to help plan the perfect timeline for your photos with as little stress as possible. Together, we'll discuss your vision for your wedding day and develop a plan to ensure that your photos reflect that aesthetic. Above all, I'm not there for my portfolio like it's some kind of magazine photo shoot, I'm there for you. I work in a way that helps my clients feel relaxed in front of my camera and having fun expressing themselves so that I can document those moments in an artful and authentic way in the photos.

Your wedding photographer in Connecticut is one of the most important decisions and investments you'll make for your big day. There are a lot of options out there to choose from so it's important to choose someone you feel you can trust and with whom you get along with on a personal level. They are responsible for capturing your once-in-a-lifetime event, all the details that will fade and people who were there. Your photos are what will live on to tell the story of your wedding long after it's over.

    

Frequently asked questions

Getting to Know You


From the minute you inquire with me, I'm interested in getting to know you and your future spouse. I pride myself on taking the time to learn about who you are beyond what you are to me as a client because it's super important that we have a good personal relationship outside of our working relationship. Your photographer is one of the people that you are going to be spending the most amount of time with on your wedding day, so it's really important that you get along with me and we like hanging out together! When you book with me, I equip you with the tools to have the #bestdayever. I check in with you on the regular in the months leading up to the wedding and I have an online client portal that makes it easy for us to coordinate all the important information about your wedding day, like your wedding vendor team info and the list of important family photos you want me to take!




The Engagement Session!


I LOVE engagement sessions and having one is such a great way for us to build our relationship. Maybe this will make me sound like a some sort of corporate dork, but I like to think of it as a great team building exercise. And that's what I am for you - a team member.

We'll use the engagement session to build more of a rapport where you'll feel more confident in front of my camera, and we'll build a friendship and develop some inside jokes. Best of all, this is like an extra-credit study-session for me to help me be more prepared to photograph you in the best way possible for your wedding day.




The Wedding Day at Last!


On your wedding day, I get down to the real work! I'm a photojournalist wedding photographer, so my goal is to document the day as authentically as I can. There will only be a few parts of the day where I will be giving directions and guidance (like family photos, where you all will be giving me deer-in-headlights looks!) and for the most part, I just try to be a stealthy ninja capturing the day in photos the way it looks and feels as we're experiencing it. When the wedding day is over, I get right to work making a few images available for social sharing within the first days after your wedding, and the final gallery of images a few weeks later.




Your Gallery of Images


Every engagement session and wedding package a couple books with me includes an Online Gallery with a Print & Digital Media Image Release for personal use. The features of the Online Gallery include: Gallery is accessible and backed up online for 10 years, helping you adapt to the rapidly changing technology of data storage Ability to securely share the gallery with family and friends so that they can access images High-resolution image download for the couple, web-resolution downloads for family and friends Ability to order archival prints and heirloom albums directly through the gallery, for both the couple and friends and family




Your Heirloom Album


null If your wedding package includes an album, we'll work together to design this beautiful heirloom that you and your family will treasure for years to come. All albums are archival quality, so they'll stand the test of time. You will get to choose the images included in your album and together we collaborate on the design, from the cover choice to the layout, so that your wedding story is told in the best way possible. Images are printed on luxe layflat pages for seamless panoramic story-telling.
