INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I capture in color and color correct every image. For candid style images and whenever appropriate I convert images to a beautiful black and white.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, my clients hire me for a full day so the light changes throughout the day. I utilize every light available to me. Daylight whenever possible - some flash when necessary and a tripod for long exposure night time shots. Rain or shine - I am ready for whatever beautiful light happens!
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital photography is what I have been using for over 10 years now. I did start out with film photography at the age of 15 - we had our own black and white darkroom - used a variety of cameras from 35 mm, to Hasselblad, to 8x10 cameras. Later I attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I learned color printing and alternative processes such as sepia, selenium, platinum and palladium printing. I worked at one of the best labs in NYC printing cibachrome prints for very well known artists. In 2007 I really started my own business using digital cameras with prime lenses. The workflow from archiving the digital files to processing & editing has been streamlined. Finding and storing images is just so much more efficient and secure! (Long answer to a short question but I am very passionate about this)
How many photographers do you work with?
I usually work alone - I do have a second photographer that I work with and you may request a second photographer for an additional fee.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, I would not miss your wedding!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I do not book multiple weddings on one day - this would not be possible for me since I am the one showing up for the full day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, I do.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I work with Canon prime lenses and 5D body. The prime lenses really make a difference and 22 mega pixel camera offers great resolution! I also use canon flash and reflectors.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, I bring multiple camera bodies and lenses. Lots of memory cards and batteries!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My photography collections include a 6 - 8 hour coverage with option to extend.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, I am always available to shoot extra hours @ $ 375 per hour which includes my time, post-processing, digital files & proof prints in an album.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I usually take short breaks when the bride and groom are eating. I do not generally photograph guests while they eat so this is a good time for me to take a break if I need to. If you would like to provide a meal great if not I certainly will bring something along.
Do you charge for travel?
I am located in the Berkshires, Western Massachusetts. I do not charge for travel expenses within the Berkshire area. For destination weddings outside my area I charge flight & hotel expenses for 2-3 nights depending on the location.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
The online gallery is up within 10 days for family and friends to view and order images. The linen proof album which includes all 4x6 archival prints is sent out within 3 weeks of the wedding day. Custom leather or linen albums take about a month from the design to the delivery.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The linen proof album with all the 4x6 archival prints are yours to keep!
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, I retain the copyright - but grant personal usage rights to you. This means you can share the images with family and friends.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, I reserve the right to publish the images unless you request otherwise.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, most of my collections include the digital negatives on a DVD for you to archive and use for personal use.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, about 7-10 days after the wedding day.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer linen proof albums, linen custom albums and boxes & beautiful leather albums.

When my fiance and I were shopping for photographers, we first heard of Lisa from her mother,who is a renowned photographer herself and highly recommended her. Lisa was the first photographer we met with and we instantly felt a connection with her. I did not bother to look any further. My fiance and I are very quiet, easygoing people and do not do well with pushy personalities. Lisa has a very gentle quiet and thoughtful way about her that really appealed to us. And we got the same feedback from our families and friends a the wedding. She puts people at ease right away. We had a very limited budget for the wedding, but Lisa was able to work with us and customize a package that fit our needs and budget, something most photographers do not generally do. Although she spent only 4 hours with us on the day of the wedding, looking at the pictures it did not feel like that. She was able to get pictures of every event and guest at the wedding. No one was overlooked. Her pictures have a very ethereal quality about them that almost makes them look like paintings. We even requested an additional session with Lisa after seeing her work and realizing that we wanted more pictures in our wedding dress and more detail pictures. Lisa was flexible and agreed to meet us right away. She listened to all my requests and executed them perfectly. Thanks to Lisa we have a beautiful memoir of our wedding day. If I had to do this again, I would definitely hire Lisa. I highly recommend her to all our friends and family. The amazing thing about Lisa is that you can see how passionate she is about her work. She never gets tired and keeps trying until she gets the perfect "shot". It is obvious that this is not just a job but a passion for her and she is a perfectionist! We enjoyed our time with her! And wish her all the very best in all her future endeavors.

My wife and I both agreed that our wedding was the most perfect day we could've imagined..... it really was a "dream" wedding! So simple and just beautiful. You were wonderful to work with -professional, easy-going, and it felt great to see you enjoying the photography. You have a very calming presence about you and it was such a comfort to us all, on that day. We had feared that a photographer might be pushy and intrusive, and would detract from the magic of the moment. Your soft-spoken and kind, gentle nature was just what we needed. We are endlessly grateful for that and would certainly recommend you to anyone that needs a photographer in the future. You are a true professional! ~Thank you~

Lisa was AMAZING! I would wholeheartedly recommend her services. Lisa was flexible, personable and not pushy at all. She knew what we wanted and did a fantastic job capturing the day. I had heard from friends that photographers can often take away from moments and get in the way, and my husband and I did not feel this way at all. She also hand delivered the finished albums and we looked through them together which was so nice of her to take her own time to do this. We would absolutely use Lisa again, in a heartbeat!

Thanks!!

My husband and I were just recently looking through our wedding and rehearsal dinner albums. We actually do this several times each year. There is a memory in every picture that transports us to a profound day in both of our lives.

When I was planniing our wedding I told my husband that a wedding photographer was the most important element of our wedding. I knew that the flowers, the food and music would fade into memories. Pictures are the only way to capture what memory forgets. Now, to choose a photographer....

Lisa Vollmer is from my hometown of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. I had seen and admired her photography over the years. At the time of my wedding I lived far away in Denver, Colorado. Our destination wedding was planned for even further away--San Diego, California. I hoped Lisa could be our wedding photographer, but I wasn't sure if she did destination weddings.

I called Lisa Vollmer Photography to see if there was any chance she would do a destination wedding. Luckily, she has great experience with destination weddings and was happy to accomodate. She was very flexible and understanding of our unique wedding plans and visions.

In the end, my husband and I were so thrilled that Lisa Vollmer could photograph our wedding. Her ability to capture the overall vibe of our wedding weekend went far beyond our expectations.

Lisa Vollmer's artistic abilities as a photographer are exceptional. However, there is more to consider when choosing a wedding photographer. What we found was that Lisa blended extreme professionalism with her talent. On top of that, her personality is so naturally charming that she fit in effortlessly with our diverse group of wedding guests and made them all feel so comfortable while being photographed. Lisa's combination of talent, professionalism and great personality show with the finished product.
