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 – so please let me know if you need me to email the information 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!
For the past few years it was usually just me, but I am not implementing a second photographer right into my Complete Coverage. It’s amazing how much of a better flow and less stressful it becomes knowing we are both there to have your back!
No worries though, I know there are many weddings that just don’t need the extra set of eyes – its not a requirement, and we can adjust that accordingly if you request so!
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 state, or just a couple who doesn’t feel like getting out of your pajamas one day or if I am temporarily in Sweden, 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, 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 8 hour wedding can expect about 800+ photographs (two photographers). 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, the other is right there! I’ve also got more than enough lenses and such as well, if I needed to break out my back ups.
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.
