Frequently Asked Questions

What are your wedding day rates? Please contact me through the contact form above to receive information about rates.

How would you describe your style? I focus my efforts on telling the story of your wedding day through moments. Quite simply put, I love moments, big and small, from your best man getting down on the dance floor to your father fixing your veil just before you walk down the aisle.

Why should we hire you? Because I take photos that show who you two are as a couple; when you show your kids your wedding photos they can get to know who you were when you got married.  I am experienced, having shot over 300 weddings, extremely passionate about photography, and truly love what I do. I want you to relive your wedding day every time you look through your wedding album.

How do you handle destination weddings? I am always happy to set up a Skype consult to get to know each other before the big day. I like to arrive to the destination city 2 days before the wedding to assure that I am there in case there are travel delays. At the time of booking I will let you know how much our travel fees are based on the estimated cost of flights, car rental (if necessary), and hotel. I handle all the bookings for travel so you do not have to worry about it.

What is your backup plan? In the unlikely event that I would be unable to shoot your wedding due to something tragic I have a network of wedding photographers I can call in an emergency.

What is the album process? When the gallery is uploaded you will have the opportunity to select your favorites for the album.

Who will be photographing our wedding? Every package includes cover by me & an assistant photographer who covers different angles as well as assists with lighting during portraits.

How do we book? To reserve your wedding date I require a non-refundable retainer & a signed contract which can all be done online once we send over a booking proposal. The payment plan is a 1/3 deposit, 1/3 at 3 months, and 1/3 at 3 weeks before the wedding date.

How do we schedule a session with you? Because of my busy weekend schedule with weddings near and far, I only schedule portrait sessions between Monday-Thursday. I like to start sessions 2 hours before sunset for the best lighting.

Do you shoot details and family formals? Absolutely. Before the wedding day I will finalize family formal list so I know who to cover and I always make sure to cover all the details that make your wedding gorgeous.

What sort of equipment do you bring to a wedding? Your wedding day will only happen once and it is important that a professional photographer have reliable gear and always have a backup just in case something were to go wrong. I bring multiple camera bodies and lens as well as a second photographer to make sure that we capture your day without pause. Here is a list of some of my equipment.

TESTIMONIALS

Best money spent on the wedding! My now sister-in-law used them for their wedding. Thank heavens I had not signed a contract yet with another photographer before I saw their engagement and wedding photos! It was the easiest decision I made for our wedding... these guys have only been out of school doing this a few years and that blows my mind... their work is unique and stunning! They are such a joy to work with and at the end of the day the photos speak for themselves-it's obvious they are very passionate about what they do. Don't hire photographers that are burned out and will cut corners. After all the flowers and music are gone, all you are left with are the photos and videos and trust me, they capture moments that preserve the true spirit of your day without missing a beat! I never even noticed them at the wedding but based on the photos, it's like they had eyes all over the room. I couldn't be more impressed with these guys....I never take the time to write reviews one way or another, but I think this is the best advice to future brides I can share. 100% guaranteed you will not be disappointed.

Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important choices you will make during the planning of your big day. Choosing Caroline for our wedding, was a fantastic decision and we were so impressed with her every step of the way. We initially met Caroline at another wedding, and I loved her unobtrusive style, so I hung on to her information. We weren't even engaged yet, but I knew her work was fantastic. After getting engaged a few months later, I reached out to her and Caroline was easy to work with during the booking process. She clearly explained her style and her role at the wedding. She also helped us figure out where in DC to take photos for our engagement shoot. We were really impressed with the way our engagement shoot at Union Station in DC turned out. All the photos were fantastic. Our wedding day (which was in Ithaca, NY) was similar. Caroline, and her guest photographer, captured all of the special moments, even the little things, that my groom and I missed! It's great to have the photos to look back on and see through the story of the photos just how much fun everyone had at our reception! We look forward to staying in touch with Caroline and I hope someday I will have another reason to have her photograph us! I could not recommend her more highly. She is worth every single penny and you will enjoy working with her. She knows how important your wedding day is and she will make sure you can enjoy the memories of the day for years to come with her vibrant, lively art. 5 stars for sure!!

Caroline and her team are awesome to work with, and the images and moments they capture on film are more than amazing. She is a pleasure to work with from the first appointment to the engagement photo shoot to the day of the wedding. The photo packages they offer include all that you need to chronicle your special day. Caroline makes everything so easy and simple and puts you and your guests at ease. I didn’t really have to give her or her team much direction. From the images I saw on their website, I know I was in good hands. I trusted that they knew what they were doing and I am so pleased with the finished product. She has a good eye for getting the right shots at the right moments without you even knowing she is there. Caroline is so creative and innovative with the photos and moments that were captured. Her and her team give you so many different angles and perspective that it takes you right back to the moment and you experience it all over again. All of our guests who have seen the photos rave about how awesome they are, and request the images they want to keep for themselves. We can’t thank Caroline enough for the wonderful images she captured, and the beautiful moments that we can look back on and remember forever.

Caroline was the very first vendor we locked in, photography was one of the most important pieces of our wedding ensemble… we were so happy to lock in and work with Caroline! She was so helpful throughout our planning process… she led us to many of our wonderful vendors, including our amazing Videographer (The Wedding Theater). Caroline was prompt to reply to all emails and calls. She was very thorough and clear during our meetings and met our expectations. Caroline and her team captured the emotion and story of our wedding better than we could have ever imagined. The moments she caught we unbelievable… we didn’t even know that she was snapping photos, she and her team were so stealth. Caroline also helped supply an awesome photo booth with great back drop and props; it was a highlight of the evening! Caroline is absolutely amazing, she is so easy to work with and very professional, polite and fun! Most importantly her photos are absolutely incredible! We highly recommend them you will not be disappointed!
