What is your style?
I would describe my style as very candid and photojournalistic. I am very much behind-the-scenes, capturing moments as they happen. I’m not going to pose you every 10 seconds or make sure your hair looks perfect. I’m not going to ask you to pretend to cut your cake or pretend to burst out laughing so I can photograph it. I try to stay out of everyone’s way and let the day unfold naturally, beautifully. The result is a whole lot of very genuine, touching photos bursting with emotion, not forced smiles.
When will we be able to see our photos?
I am generally able to post photos online in a private, password-protected gallery within 3 weeks, and your CD of edited, high-resolution images will be mailed out shortly after. I try to post a teaser photo or two both here on my blog and on my Facebook, so if you keep up with me there you’ll be able to see a sneak peek!
Do you do this full-time or is this just a side job?
I am insanely lucky enough that photography is my full-time job! I primarily shoot weddings but I also do a whole range of other events and portraits: engagements, maternity, new baby, senior photos, pets, parties, boudoir, you name it!
If my friends and family want to purchase photos, can they do so online?
Absolutely! A variety of prints and canvases can be purchased directly from your private, password-protected gallery of photos.
Can I bring my (children, dog, pet lizard) to our engagement shoot?
I encourage it! Your engagement shoot should be a reflection of you as a couple, at this point in your lives. If you have a kid or kids together, they should most definitely be a part of the shoot, at least for some of it. If your greyhound is pretty much your child, bring him along! If you think your lizard will cooperate enough to get some photos, let’s do it! The more the merrier, and I want your shoot to feel as personal as possible, so never hesitate to ask!
How early should I book you?
I am currently booking weddings up to 2 years out, so the sooner the better!
I see you’re located in Maine, but my wedding is going to be in (California, The Bahamas, India, Wisconsin, etc.) — do you travel?
With gusto! I am located in southern Maine and regularly travel all over Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, but destination pricing is available for weddings all over the world! Just ask. 🙂
I don’t see any posed family photos on here… do you do those, too?
Of course! It’s just that they’re usually only interesting to the people in ’em. 😉
