What do we do?

Do you photograph details? What about family formals?

Wedding coverage is moment-driven, and with the experience we have acquired through the years, we also choreograph all formals with the families as well as some fun shots with the bridal party. I also understand the importance of photographing all the little details that make up your day – and I love to provide you with magazine-worthy images of your table settings, personal details, and all of the other little things that you’ve spent so much time designing and crafting. 

Do you work with an assistant, or a second photographer?

Yes and yes. We offer second photographers to capture the "groom prep", as well as get the incredible "at the moment" shots that everyone loves!! At times we may bring an assistant (wedding Photographer in training) but this person will only set up lights and carry gear. You will always have a photographer that has worked their way from assistant to photographer. We don't sent assistants to shoot weddings.

How many images will we receive?

I typically take thousands of images on a wedding day, and there is no limit to the number of images that you will receive, however it’s usually in the 1000-1200 range, depending on the length of the day. I include everything great, and I edit out any misfires, missed focus image

Your images will fully tell the story of your day.

When will we see our images?

My turn-around for image delivery following the wedding is typically two weeks; however, I will post some “teaser” photos on my blog within a few days after your wedding. And, if you’re a fan of my Facebook page, I’ll post a couple of “sneak peeks” on Facebook within four days of your wedding.

Do you have backup equipment?

Of course! I carry with me two professional grade Canon 5d Mark III cameras, plus a ton of spare lenses. I shoot prime (fixed focal length) lenses, as well as a few zoom lenses.

What happens if you’re sick?

We would have to be in pretty dire straits to not attend your wedding, but if your photographer is in the hospital,I always have a team on call for emergencies.

Do you include the digital negatives?

Yes and no. All packages include a disk or Dropbox of the final high-resolution, fully-edited, print-ready files, along with a print release, allowing you to print your images anywhere and at any size. I believe that it’s important for you to have an archive of all of the edited images from your wedding. However, I do not provide the RAW files, the uncorrected digital “negatives”. Nor do I give you every single photograph taken; I first edit out any poor images. Everything you receive is edited to the same standard as those photos you see in my portfolio and on my blog.

How many weddings do you photograph each weekend?

We only cater to two wedding a day. There are three teams on staff and we want to make sure we are completely covered for your wedding day.

We love your relaxed style and eye for the fun and quirky … but our wedding will be quite fancy, so we’re a little concerned about what you’ll wear …

We always are dressed in black in order to blend in with your guests and be as unobtrusive as possible.

We’re not getting married, but we’d love to hire you for a bar/bat mitzvah, family reunion or couples portrait session. Will you work with us?

Although my focus is on weddings, I love photographing all kinds of sessions and events including bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs. I also photograph several families and non-wedding couples each year too. Please get in touch with me and we can chat about it.

We’d love to work with you; what happens next?

I’d love to meet with you both and get to know you! I also like to show you some sample albums, and answer any other questions you may have. Please contact me using the “contact me” link, or give me a call at (908) 666-2052. Let me know a few times that work for you to meet.

If you decide to hire us to photograph your wedding, 1/3 of your contract amount is due at signing and will reserve your date.
