Do I receive any raw photos.No, raw files are not available for purchase or to be viewed. You will receive photos that are edited and styled to our standards.
What do you mean by edited photos/videos?If its photos I am editing I work on a process that involves making sure that the contrast, shadows,colors, saturation and more are set to be optimal and fits our style. When I am editing videos I also make sure the contrast, colors, and saturation are set to our standards but I also make sure if there are any camera shakes to correct them, cut and piece hours and hours of footage into one cohesive 4 minute feature reel or a full 30-40 minute video depending on what the client's package includes.
What is your turn around time?With any of our 1hr sessions photos will be delivered within 1 week but we always strive to deliver the final edits within 3 days. Delivery times for a full wedding day can be from 3-5 weeks as we have a quality control process set in place.
Do you travel?Absolutely! I am open to travel outside the state & abroad for my work.. I ask for airfare, a hotel room for 2-3 nights, and transportation. For weddings outside of Connecticut limits, I have a travel fee of $100/hour, and possibly accommodation if it's too late to return to the city that evening.
How do you deliver your photos?All our photos will be delivered via an online digital gallery. A link will be sent to your email where you can easily access your images, like your favorites, download single images or the entire gallery and share to social media
