This F.A.Q. will answer some of the question you might have about my Wedding Photography. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions, comments or suggestions.

Do you have different packages?
I want to keep things simple and comprehensive on the business end. That is why I do not have different packages, I do not charge per hour and I do not have a la carte pricing. When in season my fee for Wedding Coverage is always flat and all inclusive. When out of season (November – April) I do offer substantial discounts.

What does Full Coverage mean?
Full Coverage means just that, full coverage of the whole day. I will not show up just as the ceremony starts and disappear when the cake is cut. I start with getting ready shots and stay until I have gotten enough footage of the reception and all the festivities. There is no hourly limit or additional charges.

Are you insured?
This is one of the most important questions you can ask your Wedding Photographer. Business Liability insurance is very important as it protects me, you and all your guests from accidents. Also many of the higher-end venues will not allow a Photographer (or any vendor) to work on the premises without Liability Insurance. I carry full Business Liability Insurance.

Which states do you cover?
I love traveling and distance is never a problem. I cover VT, NH, MA, ME, RI, CT, NY. I am also available for long distance travel for locations all across the US and Destination Weddings.

How long will I have to wait before I see my Wedding Films?
I won’t make you wait months to see the results. Approximately 10 days after the Wedding the films will be available online. You should receive the DVD approximately 2 weeks after.

Can you do both video and Photography?
Unfortunately I can’t, it’s either one or the other.

Do you work well with the Photographers?
I h
ave photographed close to 200 Weddings and know the craft of Wedding Photography well. I will talk to your Photographer and we will be on the same page and not run into each others shots or interfere. So far I have never had a problem. 

Do you set up lights, interview guests or interfere in any way?
Video lights are big and bulky and that is why I do not use them. I rely mainly on natural, available light. I try to not interfere or disturb the event in any way that is why I do not do those tacky interviews with guests you might have seen in old videos.

Do you do your own editing?
Yes. Some outsource the editing to online services, I do everything myself. It’s the only way I can make sure everything is just as I want it.

Can I choose the music for my film and use my favorite songs?
Unfortunately no. The songs that you have in mind cost thousands of dollars in license fees. The online services such as vimeo and youtube will take a video down immediately if a popular song is detected. Not to mention the lawsuits that can arise form unauthorized use.

Where do you get the music for our Wedding Films?
There are couple of online services I use such as SongFreedom that provides a big library of music at very affordable license fees.
