We {Nicole & Paul} are a wife and husband team who love photographing other couples in love. Our clients not only want exceptional images from their wedding day, they also want a great experience as well.

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, 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 have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I was formerly trained at the Hartford Art School and earned a BFA in Photography which has prepared me for unique lighting situations that often occur at weddings and events.
How many photographers do you work with?
All of our photography collections include myself and my husband. We've been photographing weddings together for 6 years. Having two photographers allows us the capture your day from many different angles and also acts as back up equipment. Between the two of us, we have four camera bodies and over 18 different lenses plus accessories.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Absolutely. When you hire Nicole Gesmondi Photographer, LLC you get Nicole Gesmondi and Paul Lavallee as your photographersi! Of course, should something happen to either of us and one of us physically cannot be at your wedding (sick, broken leg, death in the family), I will have a professional photographer step in for one of us to photograph your wedding. Paul and I will still retouch your images and will be your contact throughout the ordering process.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We only book one wedding per day and I also try to avoid doing more than one wedding per weekend. This allows us to focus and provide the best possible photography and service to our clients.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a network of professional photographers that would be happy to cover for me if I am unable to attend your wedding. {examples: death in the family or extremely ill}. As I mentioned above, a replacement photographer would just photograph your wedding. We would still edit their images and be your contact throughout the rest of the ordering process.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We typically bring 4 Nikon camera bodies, 14 lenses, 4 flashes, lots of batteries and memory cards to photograph your wedding. We also have a portable lighting kit in case we need to shoot formal shots inside. We also pack a large umbrella in case in rains and an emergency kit. We have you covered! :-)
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes. See above.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
In addition to what we consider full day {8-10 hours}, we also offer a la carte coverage for small intimate weddings and events. Please contact us for more information.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Sometimes things run behind and we can certainly stay for an additional hour or two.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Between the two of us, we never really take a break. We do reserve 30 mins for us to eat dinner and we require a hot meal.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes, for destination weddings or any venue that requires us to fly, stay overnight and incur transportation fees.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Unlike many local photographers, we process all of our own images which allows us to have your images ready for pick up within 4 weeks of your wedding date. Images will not be posted into your online gallery until you have come to view your images in the studio.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
You will receive all of the images taken during your event on a DVD as well as an online password protected website for your guests to view and order pictures.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes. The client receives limited copyright allowing them to print photographs at their own labs and for back up purposes. We remind all of our clients that our monitors are calibrated to our lab therefore we cannot guarantee the quality of other labs. Remember, that copyright is more than just making reprints, make sure you discuss and understand this when you meet with your photographer.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes: our contract states that we retain the commercial copyrights and can use their images for advertising purposes on our website, print ads and online sites such as facebook, WeddingWire and The Knot.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Our philosophy is "photography as art". While we do include our clients wedding images on disc, we do believe that a disc is not part of the final product. Images on disc are which great for back up purposes. But professional wedding albums are a tangible item that is cherished long after the wedding day.
Will images be available for viewing online?
We offer each client a private protected online gallery at no extra cost to them. Their images will be active online once they come in to view their wedding images. Your guest love to view the images from your day and should they order anything, we do the order processing and mail their orders directly to their home so you don't have to!
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer two different style wedding albums: coffee table books and flush mount books. When you come in for your initial studio visit, we'll review everything we offer.
When will the client get the final album?
Depending on which album you select, turnaround time is anywhere from 4 - 9 weeks.

Nicole & Paul were fantastic! From the first meeting at the studio and then getting to know them with our engagement session, I can honestly say it was a perfect fit for us! Professionally, this duo really knows what they are doing. Their pictures are wicked amazing and they truly know how to capture our personalities!!! I would highly recommend Nicole Gesmondi (and Paul of course) because they are not only amazing photographers, they are wicked awesome people too! I know our wedding photos will be the best & can thank this duo for their outstanding work for years to come!

Nicole Gesmondi was our first vendor booked (right after our venue) and probably one of the easiest. My mom and wife bid on and won an engagement session with Nicole and Paul and that is what started our relationship with them. The engagement session was so much fun and the pictures turned out amazing and of course led to us booking them for our wedding.

I feel my wife and I connected with Nicole and Paul on a different level than other client/vendor relations because when we booked them they were also going through their own wedding planning process which of course helped us a lot. Having talked with other brides and grooms this is the first time any of them have heard of a husband and wife duo photography team and I loved that aspect of it as Paul was with me and the guys and Nicole was with my wife and the ladies. So we get to see both sides getting ready at separate places then joining up afterwards. Plus having both photographers at our wedding allowed for many different angle pictures and more variety.

Paul with us guys was so much fun. He helped us put on our boutonnieres, which none of us knew how to do, he had some great ideas and helped with our ideas for guy getting ready pictures.

All in all a great experience and I hope to stay in touch with nicole and paul for future endeavors!!

When I met Nicole and Paul back in October of 2013 at my Best Friend's Wedding. It went without saying that I knew that they were the ones that I would love to have photograph our Wedding. Nicole is really professional at what she does and she is always coming up with different ideas as to how to take different, yet creative pictures.

Greg and I recently were married in July at Jesus Savior Church and our reception took place at the Oceancliff Hotel in Newport, RI. After our wedding we sat down with Nicole to review and look at the pictures she took of us and all of our guests. Her and Paul did an amazing job with capturing all of our family and friends, along with taking amazing pictures of Greg and I.

We would highly recommend them capturing all your memories of your special day, they did an amazing job in capturing ours.

We were incredibly lucky to work with Nicole and Paul for both our engagement shoot and our wedding! They were wonderfully efficient, professional, fun, and we could not be happier with our beautiful pictures! They guided us through the process with ease and always made us feel comfortable. We never had to follow up with them about anything because Nicole was always quick to reach out to us and/or remind us of next steps - not only that but we were shocked at how quickly our photos were done!! After our engagement shoot, we felt relaxed and open with them, which made our stress levels so much better on the wedding day - not only did we know the product would be beautiful, we knew they were awesome to work with! I had multiple guests (including family members and bridal party members) tell me that they could barely tell our photographers were present because they easily blended in with the crowd while getting amazing photos of the entire event! We also had a huge list of photo requests and Nicole and Paul accommodated all of them without breaking a sweat! I have already recommended them to every engaged couple I know in the area! We LOVED working with Nicole and Paul, and could not have made a better choice for our photographers!!

Working with Nicole and Paul was an excellent experience. They are both experts in their field and truly have a passion for photography. I had started doing some research to find a wedding photographer and I came across nicole's page. I started looking through her work and I loved their style and I knew I had to meet with them. During our first meeting we both felt comfortable and thought her pictures were gorgeous. Nicole and Paul were a delight to work with and they are always there to help you, even when choosing other vendors or with any wedding advice you may need. On the day of our wedding Nicole and Paul both went above and beyond and not only took amazing pictures but we're able to help us and keep us on time. They are both very friendly and professional and we were so lucky to have them take part in our day. They were able to capture all our special moments and make them a beautiful memory that we will be able to cherish for a lifetime. We are so thrilled with all of our wedding pictures and will continue to recommend Nicole and Paul to everyone!

Wow wow wow! If you are looking for unique, artistic photography for your wedding look no further. Nicole's eye is unlike any photographer I have ever seen. After the engagement session I knew not to question any angle, pose or positioning she asked for because it was just going to come out beautiful. also, we were incredibly comfortable with her and her husband, Paul - very important when you are allowing someone to be intimately involved in the most important day of your life!

After the sessions Nicole spends a lot of time with you and the proofs to narrow them down and pick the most perfect version of each shot (there are a lot!). She is an absolute professional and I can't say enough about her and her work!

My husband and I were fortunate enough to work with Nicole and her now husband Paul (then fiance) for both our own wedding and for my sister's the previous year. They are both absolutely amazing people, highly professional and fun to be around as well! They put everyone at ease and made each experience really special. The photos speak for themselves - she really captured the emotions and spirit of the day! As a bride to be herself, she completely understood where I was coming from and when we were worried about the horrendous weather forecast for our wedding day, she was flexible in providing us with our first look shoot a few days before! I honestly don't have enough positive things to say about her, she's just amazing!!!
