We {Nicole & Paul} are a wife and husband team who love photographing other couples in love.

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!!

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!!

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!!!

From their impressive studio space, professionalism, talent, and fun personalities, Nicole Gesmondi Photography has it all. Nicole and Paul make a fun and creative team that are fantastic to work with. Nicole listened to our preferences and ideas and really made them into reality. Our engagement shoot was unique and totally our style. Nicole was always available if I wanted to show her an image I liked or had any random ideas. No idea was shot down and we were able to experiment in addition to having the classic portraits done. We are looking forward to having Nicole and Paul photograph our wedding and know that they will bring their talent, experience, and artistry to make our special day last forever.

What can I say about Nicole Gesmondi? Amazing...fricking fabulous...talented...those words don't even begin to describe the experience we had with her and Paul. We cannot stop looking at the proofs of our wedding! The detail they put into their work just proves that they love what they do, and that's what you want on the most important day of your lives. Nicole even got a picture of our dog in her little wedding t-shirt! And they are so fun to work with! Her and Paul had us laughing, which was great because it relaxes the bride and groom (and what B&G doesn't need that)! OH! And if you have young children in the wedding, they are like the wedding whisperers! The pictures they took of my energetic neice and nephew were CRAZY! They got them to stand still and smile - unheard of!!! We met with them before the wedding and their professionalism is right on par with how fun they are, the asked us questions about who should take pics (or not) with who, if there were any pics we didn't want. One of our favorite things were the candids, we didn't want all posed pics and they delivered! I can't say enough about Nicole and Paul. I wish I could give more than 5 stars! If you are getting married, you will not regret hiring Nicole Gesmondi. Hell, if you want a family picture, pictures of the kids, pictures of anything, you won't regret it!

Nicole and Paul were WONDERFUL to work with! I couldn't have asked for a nicer day or better photography services for my wedding. I was very particular when I initially began searching for wedding vendors. Nicole's website was the first one I came across that I could say that I absolutely ALL of her photographs. I immediately called her and we lucked out that they had our wedding day available. The planning process from start to finish was simple and alleviated a lot of my bridal planning stress. Nicole is very detail oriented and organized, we met several times prior to the wedding to discuss the photography services she would provide. I would highly recommend her services to any bride looking for a professional, down to earth photographer who is completely committed to doing what she loves. She really DOES have your memories in mind.

Nicole was wonderful to work with! I was quite nervous doing a budoir shoot for the first time and right off the bat, Nicole made me feel completely at ease. It was actually a lot of fun working with her and I wasn't anxious like I had expected to be. She is a true professional and takes beautiful, classy photos. My husband loved the photos and was totally impressed with Nicole's work also!! I would recommend Nicole to anyone who is interested in finding a great photographer!!

There were a lot of wedding photographers at the Newport wedding show, but Nicole Gesmondi was clearly the right choice for us.

As we walked past each table, inspecting everyone's albums and price charts, we realized most of these folks could take a fine picture, but harder to gauge would be how well we would work together. We wanted to find a photographer whose style jived with ours as well as someone that we would enjoy working with both on our special day and during all of the planning and album stages.

While other photographers couldn't wait to tell us how full their calendars were getting, and that we'd better hurry up and book them, it was Nicole's relaxed attitude that gave us the only calm feeling on that busy day.

Her sample albums displayed wedding photos taken in both a journalistic style, capturing the scenes and emotions of the day, as well as traditional posed formals perfect for the frame on the wall.

An engagement photo session was a great way for us to get comfortable in front of Nicole's camera, and we got a great feel for what it would be like to work with her.

On our big day, Nicole and her partner Paul had us covered from the early hours of dressing (and pacing) through the big event and evening celebration.

All of the pictures we received from Nicole were amazing, and trying to put together a consolidated selection for our album was quite a feat. Nevertheless, it came out perfectly, and is truly a work of art.

I can't think of anything I would have wanted differently. Enjoy your day. Nicole Gesmondi's photographs will show that you did.

We loved working with Nicole and Paul. They made us feel really comfortable doing the engagement photos, which helped us make the decision to work with them for our wedding day. The photography was great! We also loved the leather bound book with the dvd of our photos. This is a nice touch. Also, the turn around time for us to get the photos was about two weeks after the wedding, this was amazing! They also worked with our videographer well, DayLight Films. We would love to work with them again!

Nicole and Paul were wonderful to work with and would definitely recommend them. Both the Engagement photos and Wedding photos came out beautifully, which is so important as they are the memories we keep from that special day. They are easy to work with, flexible and got us our photos within two weeks! A great option you get with Nicole is a guest book filled with photos from the engagement session and guests can write messages to you around the photos, it makes a great keepsake you wouldn't get with a regular guest book.

We found Nicole in a stack of business cards that we had collected at the Gillette stadium bridal expo. If you have ever gone to a bridal expo, you will know that I am talking about a hefty block of cards, somewhere between 50-80 cards deep, and that didn't even count the brochures. Her card survived the cut to 20 (the criteria being: the card had to look like it was professional, and belonged to someone with an eye for design, and it couldn't be for a larger, impersonal company), and that is when I looked at her portfolio.
I love photojournalism, my husband loves formal photos. Nicole was obviously gifted at both. She went to the top of our "top 5" stack and didn't move. There was no one who came close to the quality of photos she had that wasn't charging more than $5000 for a starter package. Formal photos can look stiff and awkward, but every formal photo in her gallery looked relaxed and real. Reviews included multiple people saying, "I'm not photogenic, but I look great in her photos!"
We met with Nicole (& Paul!) and looked at no one else after. Nicole and Paul are the sort of people you can feel instantly comfortable with, and it showed it every picture they took! They are both so fun and flexible -- on the day of the wedding, Nicole even got on the ground to take photos of us. Everyone in the bridal party thought they were a blast to work with, and even the shyer members ended up feeling completely comfortable with her by the time we had our formal photos.
I recommend Nicole to everyone I know that is getting married. She is worth every penny, and nearly all her packages include an engagement session as well as an album. Her albums are gorgeous and one-of-a-kind; you cannot find better anywhere else. We had her for a full 12 hours for our wedding, which I cannot recommend enough. Some of our best pictures came in the moments when we were too busy getting ready to pay attention, or because we were so used to Nicole and Paul being around that we didn't even notice them taking pictures!

My husband and I knew Nicole was the photographer for us when we first sat down to meet with her, her style of photography was just what we were looking for! Her images of our wedding day were beautiful, capturing all the special moments that made up our day. We can't wait to receive our wedding album! Nicole was a joy to work with throughout the whole process, we couldn't have asked for better service!

Wow! My wife and I really could not be more impressed with Nicole. Not only were the pictures amazing, but she & Paul found a beautiful spot for our formals. They covered our wedding professionally and did a great job photographing our guests. She worked with us on a custom package that perfectly fit our expectations. Her follow-up was first class.

We received our photos, with online availability, less than 3 weeks after our wedding! Other couples we know whose ceremonies were a week or two BEFORE ours, and had not hired Nicole, have either just gotten their photos (after having to call their photographer) or are still waiting, almost 6 weeks later...

I really can't, in good conscience, refer folks to any other photographers; there is no way you could get a better value or have a better experience. Many, many thanks to Nicole and Paul!!

My experience with Nicole was fantastic. I am an incredibly detailed, organized person that has high expectations. I am anal and can be difficult if you aren’t as organized and on top of things as I am. I never once had an issue with Nicole. I also moved from RI to PA early in the process. So I was a bride that had to do things remotely or squeeze a lot of things in on weekends when I could get back up to RI.

One of my factors in selecting Nicole was her obvious creativity and ability to shoot diverse photos that represent many different moods, styles and personalities. Also, when I saw her approach to photo albums I am impressed. Her photo albums are unique compared to the rest of the market and very impressive. The photo album came out fantastic.

Nicole was a pleasure to work with. She was very thorough but also laid back. She actually seems to love working with brides. (I can’t imagine that.  ) I was impressed with her packages, her pricing and her willingness to build a package that suits you. Also, I found her pricing to be extremely competitive. Nicole also has a partner so you are getting two photographers to cover all aspects of the day. They each seem to have their own specialty.

Nicole also lets you purchase a DVD of all the professional quality pictures she took at quite a reasonable price. A lot of photographers won’t let you do that. I think it is great to have them and I made framed collogues for a lot of our family members.

When I met with Nicole I connected with her and felt comfortable. I also liked that she was innovative and seemed to understand that I didn’t want a bunch of over-posed stuffy shots for a wedding album. Also, I HATE getting my picture taken. But I was able to keep a good attitude most of the time, and when I started to slip, Nicole could sense it and would get me back into a light mood to enjoy my day, and the photos showed that.

Nicole has this great balance of being laid back and friendly but is still able to be assertive, helpful and guide you when needed. She was also good at working with the other vendors to ensure we all kept on my desired schedule. I asked for her advice a lot. She was good about helping me sort through what I truly wanted, what I could afford, and what worked well based on her experience.

Recommendation to a bride no matter which photographer you use –
Order a wedding album as part of the package so you will get one. I didn’t want to order one right away. I was going to order it later when I had more money. Well I decided to order one and pay for one in my package, because many of my married friends said if you put it off, you won’t do it. Nicole also told me that, but she didn’t want to be pushy and seem like she wanted me to spend more money. It took me almost a year to do it and I had already paid for it.

Also, make sure to really think about what photos you want of the day and what people combinations. Nicole has a form to get you to think about it so you guys can plan. But I would recommend to write it down and be specific so you won’t forget or miss someone or something. The day is crazy and it is easy to forget something.

My husband and I chose Nicole as our wedding photographer based on the quality of images from her website, her laid-back and friendly demeanor and her pricing (including reprint rights on our photos). We got all of that and much more! Nicole and Paul followed through on everything we had discussed with great attention to detail, professionalism and flexibility, and we had a great time! Wedding photography can be very stressful, but Nicole and Paul put us at ease right away. We laughed a great deal that day, and have fond memories of our photography sessions. My husband and I elected to have some wedding photography prior to the wedding day. Nicole found great angles and shots in all of the places we selected, and found other unique spots along the way. Her photography shows an eye for art - while she's equally happy to invest the effort in getting a smile from a cranky child or keep shooting until we get everyone's eyes open in the large family shot! We would use her services again without hesitation!
