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.
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 and artistic standards as represented by the work on my web site. This work is performed exclusively by me in order to fulfill my artistic vision in telling the story of your wedding day.
Online Viewing Gallery with Digital Download
You will be given a link to your own private online viewing 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 for their own 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.

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.
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.
Up to 6 hours of coverage will be provided by an additional professional photographer. My second photographers are always seasoned professional photographers - never weekend hobbyists hired off of Craigslist who are looking to build their portfolio. 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.
