After your wedding, instead of going with the trend of outsourcing image editing, I spend close to fourty hours personally hand-editing your wedding photos. I do not just edit the album winners, your entire set of photos will look amazing!
You want a photographer that invests in their gear and education, and pours their heart and soul into every aspect of being a wedding photographer. For me, that means I have the latest professional-grade DSLR cameras and lenses as well as superb backup equipment. Building smart partnerships and attending skill-building workshops is something I regularly devote time to. Because most wedding venues require a certificate of insurance by photographers, I carry business liability insurance. My Gold Membership with Canon Professional Services ensures my photographic equipment is covered for expedited repair and I have access to loaner gear in case my both my main and backup gear were out of commission.
Congratulations on your engagement! I am available for weddings throughout Boston, Chicago, Berlin and for destination weddings. When looking into wedding photographers, it can be confusing differentiating between packages. My collections feature eight hours of photography coverage to ensure that the complete story of your wedding will be comprehensively documented in a stress-free manner. Beautiful wedding photography is an investment that will gain value as time passes. You may find it useful to take a peek at my FAQ page above to learn more about customizing a package just for you.
Because each couple has different plans for their wedding, I prefer to learn more about what you envision and see what options work best for you. I do offer wedding collections which do make it a little easier choice wise but with so many variables it is preferable to talk through your day.
2016 coverage begins at $3900 and always includes the following:
Pre-wedding planning sessions with Heather.
On-line viewing and print ordering for three months.
Individual image enhancement as well as color correction of all your photos all done in-house.
High-resolution, un-watermarked digital negatives provided to you on a USB stick.
While coverage begins at eight hours, if more time is needed I am available for the unexpected. I will never cap the number of photos taken at your event and carry more than enough memory cards just in case. For larger or logistically challenging weddings, a second photographer is available. All customized wedding packages are crafted with purpose - I photograph for quality not quantity and opt not to fluff up a package to elevate perceived value.
Album design consultations are complimentary. Some of my couples prefer to purchase an album at the time of customizing their package, while others begin their album selection process once their photos are completely edited. The choice is yours.
Choosing a professional wedding photographer is not something that you may have done before. When you begin this adventure, a great place to start is by determining the qualities that help you differentiate between a capable wedding photographer and an amazing one. You want to feel great about a photographer’s portfolio! As your wedding photographer I will be intimately involved in most aspects of your day. The goal for great wedding photographers is to be as non-intrusive as possible and the results after your wedding will show! The more at ease you feel as a couple, the more natural your photos will look. If you are nervous in front of the camera, don't be bashful in discussing this ahead of time since awesome photos are what you want!

"We love our wedding photos, and are so happy we chose Heather. She captured so many of the day's emotions -- moments that really made our wedding so special, and it is awesome to see the whole story of our day in the photos. My husband and I felt so comfortable, and it shows in the photos! She also got great shots of all of the little details that we put tons of time and heart into. Heather was very responsive throughout the planning process, and had great recommendations for other vendors, helping us put together an awesome team of people who worked well together and made the day flow seamlessly."
