We aim to capture timeless moments that are fleeting. The genuine glances, the subtle wiping off of tears, the moments that when you look back on you wont remember us directing you too much, but you living in the happiness and joyousness of the occasion.
Although some of our work has been featured in publications not all are guaranteed! Magazines are usually interested in for colorful and distinctly styled weddings.
The Oak and Lace couple tends to look for more candid, beautifully composed off guard images. Where they can feel comfortable being in front of the camera without looking stiff and staged. For us, it's about telling YOUR story and this level of respect is seen throughout our work in portraiture.
Usually we have a meet first, either in person or phone. After we sign contracts and I take a deposit equal to 25% of your total wedding price to reserve the date. The remainder is due 30 days before the wedding. We take all major forms of payment as well as handle all contracts and payment electronically if that’s more convenient. We are happy to do phone or Skype meetings for destination clients as well!
We do charge a standard $40 per hour of driving for locations that are not in the tri-state or new England area, anything a half hour or under is no charge.
Destination weddings cost the price of the plane ticket plus an all inclusive $250/night per diem. There is a minimum two-night stay (day before wedding and day of). Please contact us for custom quotes on destination weddings.
Unless otherwise stated, we will email you a link to your personal online gallery a maximum of 60 days after the wedding date, from which you can download the entirety of your images. The site will remain up for 10 months, more than enough time for you to share it with family and friends and take advantage of the highest-quality printing as well as custom items like canvas wraps, framed prints, mugs, magnets, etc., delivered directly to your door.
Due to the high volume of images we capture at weddings we make a final selection of the best images, edit each of those and include them in the final collection delivered to you. We find, on average, that I deliver about 50 final images per booked hour. Clients do not have access to redundant or unflattering images or those that just didn’t come out quite right.
Oh YES! a standard liability insurance citing that anything happens on our end, or weather that would qualify as an “act of God” or “natural disaster” in insurance terms happens, you’ll be fully refunded for what you’ve paid for. Unfortunately, one of the risks of hiring an uninsured nonprofessional is that if the unthinkable happens, your payment is not protected. We are fully insured and a licensed LLC in the State of Massachusetts (Oak and Lace, LLC) rest assured!
