Fantastic! If you are booking a wedding collection, we require a signed contract and a retainer fee. The remaining balance is due one week prior to your wedding date. We offer payment plans for weddings. If you are booking a portrait collection, we require a signed contract and the entire fee at booking.
we are ready to book. what's next?
Though weddings & engagement sessions are a big part of our business on weekends, we also photograph portrait sessions (maternity, newborn, families, & seniors) during the week. As we are parents to 3 kids, we know how important all aspects of your journey are.
do you only document weddings?
As we mostly document in the Hudson Valley, our dates book up quickly. Especially the months of May, June, September & October. Most dates are booked 12-18 months in advance so we suggest reaching out to us as soon as you have a venue/date secured. We can't hold dates without a retainer.
how far in advance do i need to book you for my wedding?
Yes to both. We are fully insured for your protection as well as ours. We are very close with many well qualified photographers and filmmakers that we can confidently reach out to in case of an emergency.
are you insured & do you have
We have been documenting weddings for over a decade now & have a few collections we've put together that we feel encompass most weddings. But if you are looking for us to travel or have planned an elopement, we are happy to customize something that works better for your day or weekend if you wanted us to document more than one day of your wedding celebration.
Can we customize a package?
Online photo galleries and digital files are typically ready within 4-6 weeks of the
wedding date and about 1 week for portraits (depending on season and our current work load). Feature films are typically ready within 3-4 months of the wedding date. Upon final approval of album designs most are delivered within 2 weeks. We give every effort to exceed these expectations and deliver sooner.
how long will it take to get our photographs delivered?
This your big day, so we can't tell you it's required, but we will always suggest it. For one, the day goes by so fast & spending an extra couple of hours together is always a good thing.
And you will also be able to enjoy your cocktail hour mingling with all the important people who have come to celebrate with you.
do you recommend a "first
look" on the wedding day?
If you wedding is over a year out when booking with us, we offer 3-5 payment installments based on what works best for you. If your wedding is less than a year out when booking with us, we require half the payment upon signing and the second half is due one week prior to your wedding date. If you need to cancel your wedding, we can't refund any money until we are able to rebook your date.
do you offer payment plans?
