Yaritza (Yuh-Ritz-Uh.…something like that..)
You can feel free to say it as exotically as you like though…it makes me sound more interesting, so I won’t complain.
The second most important question! I have both liability and equipment insurance. Many venues require that vendors have this – or they will not be allowed to work on the property.
My general liability policy is through Hill & Usher covered up to $2,000,000. Please let me know if you need me to email my certificate to your venue!
(Even if your venue does not require this, you should absolutely make sure your selected vendors have it, regardless. You want to make sure that if anything goes wrong – it will be covered by the correct party.)
For any vendor, I advise a couple to book them as soon as they know that’s who they want. Booking is very sporadic – some people book more than a year in advance, others can book six months or less in advance. No wedding vendor of any kind will hold a date without a retainer and signed agreement – so make sure you get both of those in once you know you want someone!
I limit myself to 25 weddings a year and I do not keep taking on weddings just for the sake of having more work or making more money. I have my happy number and I try to spread it out evenly so I can give full attention to my couples. (and lets be honest here…because I value my own down time as well.)
Because of this, even though I may technically have your date open, it may not necessarily be available. If I am not available, I will be happy to give you recommendations for other photographers that I know and love!
Its usually just me! I may sometimes bring my own assistant if I feel the need, but that’s at no extra cost.
If you decide you’d like a second photographer – we can make that happen!
My office is located in the Ivy Corset Building at 40 Jackson Street, in Worcester, MA. There’s a game room, if we feel so inclined to use it… its a bit more fun then scheduling a meeting at a cafe.
If you are out of area, or just a couple who doesn’t feel like getting out of your pajamas one day then we can always have a Skype meeting as well!
Nope! Since 2009, this has been it for me!
Absolutely! I’ve photographed and traveled to weddings in 12 states, Puerto Rico, and will also be photographing weddings in Sweden. Travel is not a problem in the slightest.
It depends on your wedding day, but a typical 7-8 hour wedding can expect about 700+ photographs. Dont worry, if there is more – I wont hold back from you!
Always! I shoot with two different cameras on my person the whole day. If one stops working for some reason, the other is already right there so I don’t even have to stop what I am doing! My backup cameras and lenses are always with me.
Ill probably think you’re awesome too! If you want to get the process rolling, get on that Contact link up above and let me know a bit about yourself and your wedding.
