I offer full day ten hour wedding coverage, meaning that from hair and makeup over morning coffees (or mimosas) to your sparkler send off, I am there for you, capturing your big day. I only offer full 10 hour coverage for weddings rather than hour based because the last thing you need to be worried about during your wedding is keeping to a schedule in order to have your photographer still around.
Upon booking confirmation for any collection, you will be invited to schedule an engagement photo session. The E session is included in the collection price and runs between one to two hours at any location of your choice. The E session is optional, but I recommend as a way for you to get used to being in front of my lens --sort of like a mini run through. You will receive roughly 25 photos from your E session which can be used for save the date cards, invitations, or simply for your memory books.
Following the wedding you will receive two sets of images; an early view* online gallery and the full set of images on a USB drive. The first set will be a link to a password protected online gallery featuring 200 (300 for Premier) of the most remarkable photos. This gallery is non repetitive and contains images that I consider to be the best in composition, subject matter and technique. Your gallery can be shared with friends and family, is easily viewed as a slideshow and can be downloaded in full. Following the gallery set you will receive a gift box containing a USB drive with the full set of selected edited photos. The full set varies depending on the collection.** I separate the initial set away from the whole in order to not underwhelm the senses by overwhelming the brain during the initial viewing. You will also receive a complimentary 20 page keepsake photo book.
For all weddings, I encourage you to meet with me in person at the time of booking in order to discuss your vision. I am also available to attend rehearsal sessions prior to the wedding.
*Early view online gallery will be released no later than three weeks following the wedding.
**The gallery set images are included in the full image set count.
*note on collections: number of images stated on USB drive includes images already released in the online gallery.
The Premier Collection -
Interested in two full time photographers during your wedding? Oftentimes large weddings with over two hundred guests benefit from two full time photographers. I am teaming up with NYC based photographer Jana Davis Pearl to offer a two-photographer 10-hour coverage package. Why a NYC based photographer? The last thing you want is two different photographers butting heads over style and direction. Jana and I blend together on both our style and work flow. We work together to make sure every detail and every moment of your day is recorded cohesively.
Coverage listed above is for Rochester and western upstate New York (from Buffalo to Syracuse, the Finger Lakes and Corning). For all other destinations please contact me for a more detailed quote.
