Below you will find the answers to all of our most frequently asked questions. We know that it’s a lot of info, so if there’s anything you’d like to learn more about, don’t hesitate to get in touch here.
Nora has been photographing weddings for almost 10 years… that’s over 200 weddings! This will be Cory’s 6th year photographing weddings, and 4th year doing it full time at Solare.
Our packages start at $3000 and always include the following:
Optional add-ons include albums, parent books, an engagement session, or a photo booth. Contact us (here) for complete information about our packages, and to check availability for your day.
If you are planning a micro-wedding or elopement and feel like you’ll need a different kind of package, get in touch and tell us all about it! We’d love to work with you to find the right coverage for you.
Our style is usually described as photojournalism, but there’s a little more to it than that!
Great question! It’s so important to us to provide continuity to our clients… so if you book with Nora, it will be Nora and her second shooter by your side on the day. If you book with Cory, it will be Cory and her second shooter getting all your must-have shots.
Our full coverage packages will always include a second photographer. We feel that two shooters are necessary at certain times to really capture the story of your day. Sometimes we’ll be shooting in the same area, especially when all the action is in one place (such as the ceremony) but there are other times (such as getting ready) when we’ll split up to achieve the best coverage.
We work with a dedicated team of second shooters, all of whom have been personally trained by us. They are a great group of people! We don’t assign them until we get closer to the big day, so that we can allocate them based on location and cut down on unnecessary travel.
The photos we take are all color Digital Raw images, that we can then choose to turn black & white as part of the editing process. Your Final Collection will include a full set of color images, and also select black and white image duplicates.
Yes! Engagement Sessions help us get to know you better, and learn what you like. More importantly, they help you feel more comfortable with us and in front of the camera! It’s also nice to have some non-selfie photos of yourselves to put up in your home or on your desk at work.
An Engagement Session lasts about an hour. The location is up to you, within an hour or so of travel from us in Concord, NH. You can pick somewhere that’s meaningful to you, or a spot that’s got a lot of variety if you can’t decide on what you like best. If you don’t have a location in mind, we’re happy to make suggestions! We stick to one location and one outfit, so that we can get into a good flow, use our time to get to know you and what you like, and avoid taking up session time with travel or changing.
We try to get a sneak peek up on Facebook within 3 weeks from the wedding (at the latest!) We know how eager you and your guests are to see them. It usually takes us 5-6 weeks to select and edit your Final Collection of photos. When your collection is ready, you’ll get an email with a link and password to your gallery. You can send this link to family and friends as soon as you are ready to share them!
YES. When you see your Final Collection in your gallery and on your USB, the photos will be consistent with the style you can see on our website. Bright, crisp, vibrant colors and clean, consistent tones from shot to shot.
Black or dark colors so we aren’t standing out in a crowd. We like to call it “moveable business” attire, so that we can blend in, but still get on the ground for that perfect angle if we need to!
Absolutely they can. There are only a few times during the day when we’ll ask for some space to do our thing solo:
Yes. We can provide your venue with a certificate if need be, so just let us know.
Also yes! Although we maintain our gear well to ensure we don’t need it, we always have backup equipment (camera bodies, lenses, batteries, lights) just in case. We even have an in-camera backup memory card, so that every image taken is saved twice right away.
When you are ready to move forward, we’ll write up a contract with the package you’d like to book with, and directions on how to fill everything out.
The deposit is usually 50% of your full package price, but we can be flexible if you have special circumstances. Just let us know and we’ll talk it through.
As a small business, checks are preferable, but we do also accept credit cards! Your date will be booked when we receive both your contract and deposit.
