Congratulations on your engagement ( …or forthcoming event)!

It’s an exciting time, with a lot of planning to do, people to meet, and endless websites to scroll through. So when it comes to hiring your photographer, why should you hire us? Firstly, and most importantly, because you connect with the photographs. Then, hopefully, you’ll connect with us also…

Having been wedding professionals for over a decade, we’ve shot events in all locations, in all weather, with all types of lighting, and under all kinds of scheduling, so feel assured that you’re in safe and competent hands.

If you’d like to make an appointment or discuss a booking, we’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by!
Catherine

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Questions…

The two principal photographers attend every event.

Can I get printed proofs?

Do you photograph mitzvahs or quinceaneras?

We regularly photograph bar and bat mitzvah events in New York City, Connecticut and New Jersey.

Many of our mitzvah clients request a portrait shoot several weeks before the event to create images to be used for signing books and posters, or for prints to decorate the party location. Our portrait shoot packages allow for several outfit changes and multiple locations.

Visit the mitzvah page to get all the details and see samples. The galleries page has its own mitzvah section also.

What’s your style of photography?

It’s really a mix of styles: a little photojournalism, some candid shots, posed shots where we will direct you. But nothing too forced or cheesy. The most important thing for great images is that the client is comfortable and feels they can be themselves.

For the reception everything is usually candid and spur-of-the-moment. With formal group + family shots we will organize you to achieve the best results.

We like to keep things light, fun, and enjoy the moments as they happen.

How do I book you for an event?

To reserve us for your event we require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer of $1500.00. The remaining balance of the contract is split in 2 payments and is due 60 and 30 days prior to the event date.

Payment can be made by check, cash, or major credit card.

To reserve an event date, or to make a secure payment online, use the “book your wedding’ link at the bottom of this page.

What album options are available?

We offer only the finest quality custom flushmount coffee-table books & matted albums. Our albums are handmade, well-crafted, durable and will truly last a lifetime without defect – we believe your album should become a family heirloom.

Albums are designed in-house in consultation with the client at key stages. Album cover options include: leather, suede, metallic, with custom embossing or image inlay. Starting at 20 pages and expandable up to 100 pages.

Album upgrades can be made at time of purchase or after viewing proofs and making image selections.
