INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Negatives, 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?
EVERY photo selected for an album, wall portrait or canvas will be custom retouched for noticeable blemishes, facial shine, minor fly away hairs and fixable eye glass glare. -- Beautiful, archival, timeless professional images and printing.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I used to be an entertainment photographer (photographed over 400 nationally touring bands). While your wedding probably does not feature stage lighting, that means I'm reallly good at anticipating action and shooting in ever-changing lighting conditions.
 
 I have experience shooting against windows, bright sunlight on a beach, know how to do a silhouette, can shoot in a dark church... if you're concerned about something specific, just ask.
 
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital. 
How many photographers do you work with?
Depends upon the event, but my philosophy is based around a two photographer shooting team for weddings.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
If you hire me, you hire me.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
It has NEVER happened, but in case of an emergency, I have an amazing network of creative colleagues and friends of which to draw from.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My standard wedding packages are based upon 8-10 hours of coverage.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Of course! While 8-10 hours is typically enough time to capture all your wedding day memories, I am happy to customize my packages to best suit your needs. ($300/hr.)
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I work really hard on your wedding day, so I ask for a warm meal for me and my 2nd shooter during dinnertime.
Do you charge for travel?
I love to travel! I get inspired by new locations - the way the sun falls differently, the architecture and the challenge of capturing the essence of the place I am, in photographs. I'm based in New York City, so a majority of my work has been in NYC + the surrounding areas. New Jersey especially but also a lot of Westchester & Long Island. That said, I shoot destination weddings as well. Recent destinations have included Mexico, Boston, Wisconsin, Philly, Las Vegas, etc. 
 
 ----------------------
 General rule of thumb: 
 
 If you are within 60ish miles of the NYC metro area, there are no travel fees. 
 
 If your wedding is further than that (or your wedding includes a SUPER early start or is slated for the day before/after a potential snow storm) I reserve the right to request a hotel room.
 
 If your wedding requires more involved travel (long drive or boarding an airplane for example), then yes, I have a small travel fee + expenses.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
I average around 6-8 weeks to get your gallery online during peak season. That said, I always aim to beat that deadline.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Password Protected Online Gallery for easy viewing, sharing + ordering. The website is very user-friendly and also allows the building of "favorites" folders. Actual printed proofs and proof books are available upon request.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, The high-resolution (unmarked) wedding day files are included in all my album packages.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yup!
What kind of albums do you offer?
Custom designed Italian Coffee Table Style Albums. 
 
 Make the album YOURS by selecting your favorite cover material (Metal, Leather, Silk, Lucite) and paper type (Photo paper, Matte Linen, High Gloss Metallic).

A true piece of art!!! That is all I can say. Brooke's artistic talent shines through on every single page of my album and is a beautiful reflection of my wedding day. Brooke was amazing to work with throughout the entire process, providing guidance and recommendations that resulted in amazing pictures that my husband and I will cherish for life. From our first meeting to post wedding where she helped to scrutinize proofs so carefully to find those 4 or 5 pictures that she felt were missing. They are now some of our favorites in the album. We are so lucky to have found such a talented photographer who was so easy to work with!

Brooke and Steven are amazing. They not only have great personalities they do amazing work. We have not gotten back our wedding pictures but they did our engagement shots and we loved them. My husband and I usually do not take pictures well but when we worked with them it was so natural and fun. The day of the wedding Steven and Brooke were not only amazing, I loved the fact that they interacted with everyone and even gave me sneak peaks of some of the pictures they had just taken. Steven made me laugh the whole time, while Brooke found some interesting ways to make photos work. When we were first looking for photographys we had agreed that it was the most important thing for us to have. I am so happy that we picked them and can not wait to get our pictures from the wedding.

Hiring the services of Brooke and Steven was the best decision we have ever made. I like that most of the shots they capture are naturally done and very seldom staged. I would love to have them stage us though even though I know we are capable of posing well. I have not received our wedding photos but they did a great job in our engagement photos that's why we are really confident that we are going to have beautiful wedding photos. They were also very accommodating when we asked for the day after the wedding/trash the dess photo sessions. I also love the personalized attention that they are giving their clients. As almost always good and experienced wedding vendors always come more expensive than average vendors. But all I can say is ...you get what you pay for. Sometimes its worth to pay more and be happy and satisfied than to pay a little less and be disappointed!...And for Brooke and Steven...We can't wait for our wedding photos. We are so confident that they are going to be a killer!

Photography was very important to us when we were planning the wedding, and we couldn't have been in better hands than Steven and Brooke's. They clearly love what they do - and they are amazing at it!!! We felt comfortable with them right away, enjoyed their creativity and sense of humor and knew that they would do whatever it took to get their shot. They are a great and professional team -- they know when to stand up and direct and when to blend into the background. Although we haven't seen our wedding photos yet, we know that they captured the day and how special it was to us. We highly recommend them!

When my husband and I got engaged and starting to plan our wedding, one thing we both agreed on was having an amazing photographer. We looked around for a while and met with many studios that seemed to be ran like wedding factories. The moment we found and made the first contact with them, we felt at home. Not only is there work amazing, but they truly become part of your day. Though the pictures on there site were fantastic, going to view them in person sealed the deal for us. From the friendly emails reminding us that our wedding day was soon approaching and how were we feeling, to the personal and intimate attention they give you when choosing your wedding album....they are simply the best. Even my hair and makeup artists loved how our pictures came out they even added some of the wedding photos to their sites!!!
We can whole heartly say that they were by far our favorite wedding vendor.

*I wanted to add that in June of 2010 I had my daughter and Brooke took the most amazing photos of her!!
