Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We are very experienced in handling all lighting situations, especially since in some circumstances, flash photography may not be permitted during the ceremony. Available light shots are an opportunity to capture the essence of the moment in a very natural way, but essentially the goal is to provide you with an image that doesn't look contrived.

We only handle one wedding at a time.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
We always bring at least 3 to 4 extra cameras, including extra flashes and lighting equipment. Your wedding is too important to risk faulty equipment, and we value your trust in us.
Do you charge for travel?
We do not charge extra for travel within 200 miles. Destination weddings are always negotiable.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
The images are usually available for viewing on an online gallery within 10 to 14 days.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The proofs are yours to keep forever, either on a printable high resolution DVD, or a proofbook with printed images.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer a large selection of album options, including magazine style, coffee book, and traditional matted style. Exclusively designed for you, no two albums will be the same.
When will the client get the final album?
After you have made your selections from your proofs, your album is designed and put together. This usually takes about 6-8 weeks.

Sam and Jo are a great team to work with! I loved having two photographers to capture different shots and angles. Also, they were very helpful in planning the timing of the day, for example, where and what time to start taking pictures, what type of pictures/shots are popular or traditional, etc. After our first meeting I knew they were who I wanted for my wedding. I did the obligatory shopping around but no one else compared! They were a lot of fun to work with and made me feel at ease! The photos taken between the ceremony and reception moved very quickly and efficiently. This team is a must have for your wedding. In case of inclement weather, they were prepared to stay in the hotel the night before my wedding to ensure they would be there! After seeing the proofs of my pictures I know I couldn't have asked for better photographers!

Absolutely Incredible photographers! Sam and Jo are not only great people, but they are great at what they do. They have a deep passion for photography and their work shows it! We had two planning meetings before the wedding to discuss what I was hoping for and planning out times and the such. They arrived on time, even with all the traffic on our wedding day, and made the entire picture processed completely painless. I didn't have to do a thing but smile. Sam and Jo made sure that we didn't miss a picture with family or friends. After we were done with the all the formal photos I wanted, they got incredible shots of my husband and I laughing, me making funny faces in the elevator, and my flower girl just being hilarious, the results were fantastic, and the process wasn't stressful at all. I would recommend them a million times over and feel so so privileged to have had them as my photographers!

I have to be honest, I was not looking forward to having my photo taken. I have always felt very awkward being photographed. Sam and Jo, a husband and wife team, took this awkwardness away and made the whole experience fun and enjoyable. They captured beautiful scenes that we will treasure! The lighting and backdrops could not have been more perfect. We did not plan anything for any photo shoot. Sam and Jo had done everything for us. We included our dog in our big day too. Even with this unpredictable moving piece they were able to capture gorgeous pictures with striking compositions. They had several stunning locations planned to ensure they captured as much differentiation as possible. Every single location suited our wedding theme. My fear of being photographed is gone and I cannot wait to see our wedding photos!

We looked at and met with a lot of different photographers before we found Lavender and Lace Photography. We met with Jo and Sam and instantly knew they were the right photographers for our wedding. Im so so glad we found them! They listened to all of our needs (and even my quirky demands!)

They couldn't have been more professional or easier to work with. I'm the maid of honor at my best friend's upcoming wedding, and I'm highly recommending Lavender and Lace to them!

Sam and Jo were so great to work with! My grand-father had to be hospitalized suddenly the day before my wedding and I was really upset thinking he wouldn’t be able to make it. Sam and Jo suggested taking the pictures a little earlier at the house so we could stop at the hospital on the way to the church and pop-pop could see me in my wedding dress. I’ll never forget his face when he looked at me in my gown! I get emotional just thinking about it again, the pictures of us together are priceless, I’ll always treasure them. My whole wedding day was a huge success and I still get compliments from my wedding party about how great the pictures are and how easy it was working with Sam and Jo. I’d recommend them to anyone, they’re the best!

In addition to my own wedding this year, I've been to six other weddings during the course of 2012. There was one wedding rather early on in the year that highlighted to me how important it is to find professional photographers you are willing to trust with your wedding. Without naming anyone, this individual was completely unaware of the space and other guests. At one point, as the bride was walking down the aisle, the photographer was no more than a couple feet in front of her face, snapping away. This photographer stayed close throughout the entire ceremony, prompting the priest to tell her to 'back off'. She stayed close throughout the entire reception which ensured not a single guest managed to get a clear shot of the bride, groom or wedding party without capturing this irritating woman in the frame.

When I met Sam and Jo I was immediately put at ease by their professionalism and easy going attitude. We talked about the above example and they laughed because they understand that a wedding is not only about you and your spouse, but about everyone you love and care about being able to share in the celebration of your wedding. It was important to me that the photographers we hired cared about us and everyone else there. Sam and Jo lived up to every expectation I had and then some. I would recommend them to anyone getting married on the Eastern seaboard.

Lavender and Lace Photography traveled to Republic of Ireland from USA to do our wedding photography. They were still less expensive, by far more professional. They did their homework on the venue, guests and family members and everyone was stunned at the wonderful results. The album mixed the traditional Album with the contemporary layouts and printing, everyone is raving about it.
They now have a booking for Scotland! for next year for another family member. It was like having some morefamily members at the wedding, they were so non invasive and yet caught the whole essence of our special day. When I open the album, I am right back in that fabulous day. A video could not have done justice the way our album has.
They will be doing all three of my children's weddings, no matter where in the world they are, I wouldn't trust it to anyone else.

Thank you for the wonderful memories.

Lavender & Lace Photography was extremely professional throughout the day of my wedding. They came into my parents house in a curteous manner and did not just take over the place. My father was very emotional that day and when they started taking pictures he was gettting choked up and they back away from him to give him some privacy to collect himself. They had been to the place where we went for pictures, which was Longwood Gardens) and they knew exactly where to go and I didn't have to plan where the pictures would be taken. They were open to suggestions of pictures that you want and asked for a list of pictures and who you wanted in the pictures to help make the day go more smoothly. We had both color and black and white pictures taken and the outcome of the pictures was wonderful. They captured both the still and the action shots beautifully. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a quality photographer who is personable to you and your family. When you meet with Sam and Jo you know exactly who is going to take your pictures and what you are going to get. That was a huge deal to us as other big photography companies couldn't, or wouldn't, tell you who your photographer was going to be and couldn't supply a sample of THEIR work. But with Lavender & Lace you know what to expect and that really sold it for us.

Sam and Jo did such a great job with our wedding, Patrick and I were so glad we chose them! We especially loved that they were a husband and wife team, they made it so much fun, the pictures are incredible, we researched so many photographers but there was something so unique with their style, them, and our comfort level with them made the decision easy. Having chosen a professional team was one less thing we had to worry about on that unforgettable day. I can highly recommend them.

They were responsive to each and every request. The were dressed and acted professionally. The were friendly to everyone they encountered during the the entire day and well into the evening.
What you receive from Lavender & Lace goes well beyond the price of purchasing pictures. I would recommend them to anyone..

I was more than impressed with the ability of the photographers to catch candid moments without having everything stopped and staged. They were patient, kind, and extremely helpful guiding us through everything we needed to do and know that was not even part of their job but they wanted to help make sure it was perfect day. The final pictures were remarkable and we had so many to choose from. I would highly recommend Lavender and Lace Photography to anyone looking for a professional team to capture your wedding day.

They make a fantastic team. I find that having both Jo and Sam take photos allow you to see many different sides of your wedding. They make you smile and help you get the most of the big day. They are very open to suggestions, but also work hard and creating quality photos for memories that will last.

Overall we were extremely satisfied with the service that we recieved. Lavender & Lace was very informative and helpful throughout the entire process. They were able to offer suggestions on different pictures to take and where to take them. They were very flexible and worked very quickly to ensure that we got all of the pictures that we wanted taken.

The only thing that I would like to see improved, is that at our reception they took a list of everyone's e-mail address to send out the link to the photo website and I later found out that several people on the list never received the e-mail.
