Creative Services - Details


Initial Consultation and Follow-up Meetings.

The initial consultation is basically a fact gathering meeting once we spend some time getting to know each other. I prefer to initially meet in person over coffee or a glass of wine if possible, and will use email, FaceTime, or Skype for follow-ups as needed.   We will always chat at about 30 days out from the wedding date, just to review any updated wedding day plans, new photography requests, and go over finalized timelines.


Travel to/from Venue Locations.

I will gladly travel to and from your venue locations -  up to 2 hours driving distance (each way) from Franconia NH.  If the travel distance is deemed excessive, or an overnight stay is required, travels fees and/or overnight accommodations would need to be supplied.  This would all be agreed upon upfront and would be included in our contract agreement.


Coverage Hours.

At least 8  hours of day-of coverage is provided by me as the primary photographer in all Creative Service Collections.  You just tell me what time I need to arrive based on your timeline of events.  Additional hours of coverage are included in upgraded Creative Service Collections and are also available as an add-on option to any Collection.


Professional Editing of All Final Images.

All images are edited using state of the art "digital darkroom" tools and photo editing software.  All images are color corrected on a color-calibrated monitor.  All images are adjusted, enhanced, cropped, retouched, and/or creative effects applied, to meet my technical standards and artistic vision.  This work is performed exclusively by me in order to fulfill my artistic vision in telling the story of your wedding day.


Online Proofing Gallery with Digital Download

You will be given a link to your own private on-line proofing and download gallery of all final images. This allows you to easily share AND distribute your images to friends and family by sending them the link. No need to send out DVDs, email specific images to various individuals, or upload to a fee-based file sharing service.  Just share the link with your guests and let everyone pick and choose their own favorites to download and use. There is no additional charge to them.  And it is smart-phone and tablet friendly, can be password protected, and has no expiration date.


High-Resolution images.

  • All delivered final images are high-resolution jpeg digital image files
  • Specifically prepared for producing high-quality prints
  • Archive copy delivered on USB Drive


Low-Resolution images.

  • Low-resolution version of all delivered final images 
  • Specifically prepared for viewing and sharing on the Web
  • Water-marked with my Logo.


Print Release & Unlimited Personal Use License

This allow you to print, use, and reproduce any of your final images as you wish.  You can post your photos on-line, email them to friends, copy them to your computer, make your own book or album, or anything else you may wish to do with them that is for personal use.


Engagement Session.

This is a 2-4 hour casual photography session where we meet at a favorite or special location of yours (within a reasonable travel distance) to take photos of you as a couple before you are married.  Nothing formal, as it is totally laid back where you can just be yourselves, so its a great way to relax in front of the camera without the timeline restrictions of a wedding day.  Its a great opportunity for you to get comfortable being in front of a camera, and for me to learn more about how you interact together as a couple.  Think of it as a practice run for your wedding day - but without any of the anxiety or stress.  Engagement session images are perfect for Save the Date images, personal wall art, or guest signature books at your reception. 


Additional Hours of Coverage.

Additional hours of coverage can be added to any Collection.


Wedding Day Story Highlight Gallery

This online gallery is a collection of just the highlighted images that tell the story of your wedding day. Think of it as an online wedding album without all the family formals! This is a great way to share the memories of your wedding without friends and family having to work their way through the hundreds of final images. 


Second Photographer.

Up to 6 hours of coverage will be provided by an additional photographer.  A second photographer provides images with different perspectives and angles, and also provides coverage for events taking place simultaneously.  For instance, if you wanted images of the groom getting ready but he is getting ready at a different location from the bride, a second photographer could provide that coverage.   Note that I will still be the one performing all the final editing and creative work on your images. It would still be my artistic vision and creative body of work that you would receive as a final product.


Online Professional Print Ordering Service.

Professional prints for any image in your Proofing Gallery can be ordered directly from the gallery. Prints will be produced by my professional printing lab that deals exclusively with professional wedding and portrait photographers (their high-end printing service is not available to consumers).  Your satisfaction of the print products is guaranteed.  Click here for more details.

These beautiful heirloom quality albums are professionally designed and are custom made in the USA. They are offered in 2 sizes, 10 x 10 and 12 x 12, have thick pages (about the width of a nickel), are flush mounted, and lay flat when opened for easy viewing.  Options for type of cover, presentation box style, and other custom details are offered.  Click here for more details.
