Review: new york wedding in the fall...

  • Seriously, with the volume of great photos we got back it's hard to choose... there's one with awesome lighting of our first dance, a great portrait of us with our flower girl and ring bearer (with them smiling!), and an amazing night portrait with a lighted tree in the background. Just to name a few.
  • Mary and I discussed in advance the lay-out of the day. She knew where to be and when. She was always there for the "big moments" though thinking back, I really didn't notice. There are really fun action shots of the bridal party, and later dancing. They're so fun and remind us about the great time everyone was having. Mary captured that joy in everyone from age three to eighty-five. We loved going through the photos and seeing candids of our guests enjoying the night. Mary has artistic perspective that shows through in portraits and detail shots. I never would have thought that a photo of my dress could look like a piece of modern art. It was great to get the photos back and be surprised about some unexpected shots becoming favorites.
  • We received a wedding DVD with the high-res files, engagement photo session with all photos, print credit to be used however we chose, and an online gallery posted for two months for family to peruse and purchase.
  • The engagement session definitely helped us. It really was strange to have someone photographing you as a couple, and only the two of you. Mary also has a great, laid-back demeanor that counters the craziness of the wedding day. She's prepared for most everything "just in case."

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? I didn't have a favorite but I really like Mary's sense of capturing candids- some of those were my favorites!
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? She doesn't take center stage at your wedding but tries very hard to be 'sneaky' and unobtrusive. She still takes amazing shots and doesn't let anything be missed. She knows the right times to be up front and when to just let the ceremony go on without disruptions.
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? All of our prints were posted on an online gallery which included an engagement session, options for prints and albums and easy access.

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? We decided to go to an old monastery to take some photos because it has beautiful old buildings and stone walls that surround it. We had just finished taking some pictures along one of the old stone walls that is beneath some evergreen trees and facing a meadow. Eric was helping me walk through some of the leaves, holding my hand and guiding me back to the path. It's a candid shot and I absolutely love it! We're not even looking at the camera but it's a great picture of what our relationship is all about...helping each other out and trusting that the other person has our best interest in mind. Beautiful!
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Mary was timely but not pushy. She was flexible enough to go with the hiccups of the day but also kept things flowing when needed. She took some great candid shots and our "portrait" pictures are beautiful. She made things go so smoothly and I was so pleased with the outcome!
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? We received CDs of our pictures with the copyright agreement to those pictures. We also received a certain amount of credit to be used on her online photo gallery, along with a wedding album.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Everybody loved Mary and the work that she did! Pictures with the wedding party went smoothly and were a lot of fun. And family pictures, my main source of fear, turned out great! We had a ton of family pictures after the wedding and she got great pictures without making the "session" last too long.
