The wedding experience!
I take on a limited number of weddings each year. Finding the right wedding photographer is very important! Each of my clients (turn friends) are extremely special to me. We will find a time to grab coffee and discuss what you envision for your wedding day, talk details, timeline, colors, and so much more! Together we will create photographic memories that will never be forgotten.
Wedding coverage starts at $3500.00, please contact Rachel for wedding package information as well as pricing on professional quality prints, canvases, albums, and boutique items. All wedding packages include consultations, an online gallery for viewing and ordering, a personalized blog post, as well as little surprises along the way!
Where are you located and do you travel?
I am located in Connecticut, but LOVE to travel, so please don’t hesitate to contact me for information and travel fees.
What is your style?
I am a documentary photographer, my style is a mix of photojournalism and modern. I enjoy capturing the day as it happens and allowing all of the moments to unfold. Its wonderful to get the shot of dad crying as he sees his daughter for the first time, and when mom helps her son put on his boutonniere. I love capturing timeless moments. I also enjoy being creative and setting up posed shots of the bride and groom, bridal party, and family.
How do I book you as my wedding photographer?
Contact me to set up a time to grab coffee and chat details!
Engagement session are a great time for us to get to know each other! I get to capture your love story before you are married. We can set up a stylized shoot with props, or we can go more natural and candid. I recommend doing the engagement session six months before the wedding so you can use the images for save the dates and thank you cards.
All wedding packages include a second photographer. I have a small group of second photographers that I work with. They are all extremely talented and professional. Having two photographers insures that no moments are missed. The second photographer is able to be wherever I am not.
Backup camera and lenses? Liability insurance?
I have back up cameras and lenses, so in the event that my camera is not working I have a full range of spare equipment. I also have liability insurance and can get you my insurance information upon request.
Do you photograph more then one wedding a day?
No, I only photograph one wedding a day. I want to give my couples the highest quality of service and to insure that, I only book one wedding per day.
Professional Hair and makeup:
I work with a couple amazing professional hair and makeup artists. Please let me know if you would like me to send names your way.
How long does it take to receive my photos?
Approximately 8 weeks for completion. I will post sneak peaks and get a blog post up about your wedding within two weeks of the wedding. The link to your online viewing and ordering gallery will be e-mailed to you once all of your images are edited. Prints, canvases, and boutique items can take a little longer to come in. Once they arrive at the studio they are sent straight out to you!
Can I print my photos?
Yes, each wedding package includes a print release so that the client can print the images.
Do you offer canvases, prints, coffee table books, and albums?
Yes I work with a professional print lab and offer canvases and prints of all sizes! Albums, parent albums, coffee table books, and boutique items are available as well. I include all product pricing with every wedding inquiry.
What kind of training do you have?
I am a certified professional photographer; I graduated from the Hallmark Institute of Photography.
