New England Weddings
Every New England Wedding package includes:
6, 8, or Full Day Coverage-
We believe that in order to accurately tell your story, there is no reason to cut short the moments that go into it. For this reason, our local wedding packages give you options that provide enough time to capture the essential moments of your day. We often recommend at least 8 hours of coverage to fully capture the days adventures, however we understand that budget and the days events may not be conducive to 8 or more hours so we offer packages to fit your individual needs.
An Engagement Session-
This comes with every package booked as we feel this not only gives us a chance to get to know your story and build a relationship before the big day, it also allows YOU the time beforehand to relax and become comfortable in front of the camera. This gives both of us the time to build that personal relationship and for us to give you photographs that matter. All post-processed images delivered via online gallery. Every image you receive in your gallery is finished, without watermark in high resolution. From your gallery you can directly download each image for printing and share. We don't guarantee any specific number of finished photos but our general range is between 500-800.
Optional Second Photographer-
Every wedding we work together as a team! However, we don't require that you hire both of us to photograph your special day. Ashley has photographed many weddings herself with Daniel there to provide an extra eye for angles, straightening a tie, or directing groups where they need to be. That being said, we do recommend taking advantage of having a second photographer as there are so many moments that you will not see as the bride and groom that we are able to capture as a team. Having two cameras and perspectives allows us to photograph more of your story than any one person could do on their own.
Printing and Digital Use Rights-
You are allowed to print as many of your photos as you want, as many times as you want without limit. You also are able to share your photos online and on social media with proper photo credit.

We're ready to adventure with you! Please contact us for a reasonable quote.
We believe that it is important for you to find a photographer that captures moments in a way that you appreciate aesthetically, but that also that connects with your vision for how you what your memories to appear in your photographs. We try to keep a variety of photos on our portfolio so you have a visual of different sessions we have photographed but below we've answered a few questions to help you decide if we are the photographers for you.
How many photos do you usually deliver and how soon will we receive them after our wedding or session?
Every session is different, and we don't like to place a number on how many photos you will receive so that we aren't trying to meet a quota at the end of the day, but rather giving you the best representation of your story. That being said, on average most wedding galleries are between 500-800 photos, and 50-100 photos for a hour session. Turn around time is between 4-6 weeks, but we do our best to get them to you earlier than that.
Is your business insured and how do you protect your photos?
Yes, we are insured through PPA and carry both liability and equipment insurance for both local and destination weddings and sessions. The only reason you would not receive your photos would be if our memory cards or cameras were stolen which would be a very rare circumstance. We use a dual memory card slot in our cameras to make sure that we have two cards with your images and immediately after a session or wedding we backup your photos on two separate hard drives to make sure that your images are protected.
What do we need to do to book our date?
Once we send you the contract, there is a grace period of 10 days for you to sign the contract and return it along with a 25% non-refundable retainer to book your date. The rest of the payment is due on the wedding or session day. We do not take credit cards, only cash or check.
What do you mean by "Full Day Coverage" for weddings?
Full day means that rather than charging you per hour, we are there from the getting ready to the send off. While every wedding is different, as a general guideline we plan to arrive when the bridal party is almost finished with hair and makeup, as prior to this you generally will not get the most flattering photographs, and we stay until all the planned evening events(garter toss, games, father/daughter/mother/son/anniversary dances, send off) are finished. If you are not planning on a send off or evening finale, we often do not stay till the very end as dance floor photos become repetitive and the evenings can run very late without much new content. We would rather give you an album of 600 photographs full of meaning than 1000 pictures comprised mostly of Aunt Susie dancing.
What is your booking process?
We try to answer as many basic questions here on our page, and you may not live in state so a face to face meeting would be very difficult. Before booking we will set up a phone call to hear your story and to go over the details of the contract and your vision for your session or wedding. After that we will send you the contract filled out with your information to be signed and returned along with your retainer. Once you have booked with us, we will set up a Skype or video call with you to get to know you a little better and build a relationship that allows us to capture your story authentically. If you are local or coming to the area though, we would always love to sit down at a local coffee shop and go over details in person!
We are having a local wedding, but we are doing a destination honeymoon/engagement session. Will you travel for those?
Absolutely! We would love to adventure with you! We have had the privilege of going on several destination honeymoons capturing some of the off road adventures our couples have enjoyed together. There is often less stress and planning for these sessions and more time to capture just the two of you.
What are the costs for your destination packages?
We don't offer set prices for destination weddings as there are many variations involved. Travel expenses, duration of the trip, and location all play into package cost. Our goal is to make photographing your adventure affordable so don't hesitate to let us know your budget. There are often ways to save on expenses for destination weddings and elopements and we would love to work with you!
