I HOPE THIS ANSWERS SOME OF YOUR INITIAL QUESTIONS OTHERWISE I LOOK FORWARD TO CHATTING!
Q: HOW DO YOU IDENTIFY YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
A: Fresh, Fun and Natural.
Q: WHAT IS NATURAL LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY AND WHY DO YOU USE IT?
A: Natural light photography is shooting using the beauty of the sun and surrounding natural elements. In my experience, natural light is the prettiest type of light there is that creates the most beautiful pictures. I do everything I can to ensure I’m leveraging it, I utilize natural light because I want to capture the mood, the precise feeling of the moment...not artificially alter it. I will use flash in necessary situations.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR EDITING STYLE?
A: I am a firm believer in natural beauty! While I will retouch blemishes, un-even skin tones, scars if you wish, I try to keep things as natural as possible.
Q: WHAT IS A BOUTIQUE STUDIO?
A: It's all about being personal and dedicated to each and every client. Unlike larger studios, you always have one-on-one contact with your photographer who can help guide you along in your wedding planning process. Being a boutique studio also allows for highly personalized packaging. So whether you are looking for an album or just the photographs, we can create a package that is right for your budget.
Q: HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION WITH YOU?
A: Simply just contact me and we'll go from there!
Q: CAN I EDIT ANY OF THE PICTURES YOU SEND ME?
A: All of your digital images will be carefully edited personally by me. I spend hours making sure your images are pristine and also reflect my photographic style. I politely ask that you leave the images as they are delivered. If you should require special editing, please let me know beforehand. If you would like additional editing after the images are delivered, let's discuss. Please make sure to review my portfolio on my website, Facebook, and Instagram pages to ensure that our artistic styles are a match. I appreciate your understanding on this matter!
Q: DO YOU CHARGE A TRAVEL FEE?
A: We love to travel! We gladly service anywhere within an hour of our home base of Hoboken, NJ for Weddings. Lifestyle shoots are restricted to the local Hudson county area (Hoboken, Weehawken, Jersey City). Anywhere outside of this could potentially have a travel fee and will be determined based on the travel needs.
Q: DO YOU HAVE LIABILITY INSURANCE?
A: Of course!
Q: HOW MANY PICTURES WILL I RECEIVE?
A: Weddings: Please contact me to discuss your customized package!
A: Engagement: I love to snap away at our sessions so an exact number of photos is tough to determine. On average, you will receive 35-50 edited digital images (subject to vary depending on shoot/package).
Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE THE EDITED DIGITAL IMAGES?
A: Weddings: you will receive your edited digital images about 4-6 weeks after your wedding.
A: Engagement: you will receive your edited digital images about 2-3 weeks after your session.
Q: HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY EDITED DIGITAL IMAGES?
A: Your edited digital files will be delivered via an online gallery where you download the images directly to your computer and also share socially.
Q: DO YOU RECOMMEND PHOTO SHOOT LOCATIONS FOR ENGAGEMENT & LIFESTYLE SESSIONS?
A: I always recommend selecting a location that is special to you! This could maybe be where you first met, or even where you like to hang on the weekends. If you are looking for suggestions, I can make some fantastic recommendations depending on what you are looking for. Keep in mind that I am a natural light photographer and prefer to utilize the beauty of the sunlight.
Q: WHAT DO I WEAR ON MY SHOOT?
A: Anything that you feel comfortable and beautiful in that reflects you style! As a general rule, the more simple the better. Whether you're going for casual or formal, solid colors usually photograph well. Try to avoid plaids, florals, patterns, flashy jewelry and head to toe black and white clothing. It's fun to coordinate what to wear with your partner or family members but try to avoid extreme "matchy-matchy" outfits. Usually coordinating tones works nicely! Feel free to bring a change of outfit on our shoot so we can have some variety to work with! If you would like some suggestions or guidelines I can send you my style guide!
Q: HOW LONG ARE YOUR LIFESTYLE SESSIONS?
A: Although each session is different, an average a shoot will last one to two hours. I will always make time for breaks when necessary. My goal is to create beautiful memories for you therefore I will stay as long as it takes to meet that goal.
Q: DO YOU CREATE ALBUMS, PRINTS AND CANVASES?
A: Yes! Depending on your customized package, we will create the album that is right for you.
