Photographer in Old Lyme, Connecticut
My Approach: I am a Wedding Photographer with an appealing, complete & unique program: high quality services at an affordable $1975 bottom-line fee WITH FULL DAY COVERAGE for 2016 & 2... Weddings. I capture more than 1500 digital pictures & the new couple gets a minimum of 400 - 4x6 prints in two attractive modest Albums and all 1500 digitals on DVD’s for reprints & enlargements with no copyright restrictions. I will cover the entire Wedding Day, including the finishing preparation touches with Bride-to-be and her girls at the beauty salon! I’ll get all the special moments of the Wedding Ceremony from different vantage points, including Moms ushered to their seats, Bridesmaids’ processions, the Bride’s entrance, unity candle lightings, ring exchanges, vows, that first kiss, and much more. After the ceremony, I’ll get shots of receiving lines & at the Reception, some guest book signings, introductions, first dances, cake cutting, friends and couples, anniversary dances, dollar dances, groups at tables, kids’ antics, garter and bouquet tosses, and much more. I’ll stay shooting till the happy Couple drives off into the sunset with tin cans tied to their car’s bumper! I turn the lights off at the end of the day! I have no time limitations! My Credentials: I have covered over 500 Weddings in the past 15 year period, more than in 50 in Atlanta Georgia, but mostly now in Connecticut. I've also covered Weddings in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Washington State. With no obligation on the part of a couple, I meet to show my Wedding Portfolios, but beforehand, see many beautiful samples on my website with memorable moments I’ve enjoyed capturing: http://....com/ If you like what you see, we’ll meet & I’ll show even nicer renditions in my portfolios. (Computer versions don’t do the originals justice.) Besides, I feel it’s important for a couple to feel good about the person who captures fleeting images of the biggest day of their lives. My Fees: The total Wedding photography fee is $1975. When a Couple decides on my services, I require a $175 deposit, a $700 payment 60 days prior to the Wedding, and the balance when the completed Albums, digitals on DVD’s and DVD’s of video are turned over to the new Couple about 10 days after the Wedding. If you need, I can help with reprints, enlargements, “coffee table” & deluxe albums, picture frames, CD renditions and other matters, but remember: all digitals on DVD’s are for you with no copyright restrictions – they’re yours!! Too often, other Photographers often charge much more for only a very basic service, restricted photography time, fewer pictures, no copyright releases, no DVD’s of digitals, no video on DVD’s, no rehearsal familiarization, no engagement photoshoot, but they have pricey surcharges for some of these extras! Many other photographers frown on family & friends taking pictures with the photographer, but I warmly welcome others capturing those same memories right along with me! A Final Note: I work within the desires of the Family and Officials presiding over the sacred ceremony. I humanize the collection and get the warmth & emotions of the entire day. Whether I am the Photographer you choose or not, thank you for your consideration, and I wish you a beautiful Wedding Day & a lifetime of happiness together! INCLUDED SERVICES: Engagement photoshoot, Rehearsal coverage & Video • Engagement photoshoot – Some couples tell me they’re not interested in an engagement photoshoot. I look on it as a time to as get together with the couple for two hours at Rocky Neck State Park for 350-500 pictures and as another opportunity to also talk about Wedding day, to get to know me better and for me to hear more about what they’ll want from me on Wedding day. • Rehearsal coverage – At Rehearsals I rehearse too and can offer suggestions when you want them! I’ll get 200-300 shots that are fun to compare to the real thing on Wedding day! I’ll know where best to capture memories on Wedding day. I like to meet the Pastor or other Officiate and let that person know I’ll be respecting their requests. I like to meet family members and the bridal party and let them know I’ll capture many shots suggested by them! • Video on Wedding day – I’ll capture 3-4 hours of Ceremony and Reception coverage and turn over DVD’s (unedited) as simply a nice feature if you’re not having a videographer. (I am not a videographer, and I wouldn’t ever miss an important photo opportunity by being preoccupied with video. I’m perfectly content with loaning out the camcorder to a family member or guest on wedding day who might like to animate it a bit!
