As you research the best wedding photographer to capture your day, questions will arise.
I’m always available to provide the information you need to make the best decision, but if you’re starting your search online, the following questions are some that I get most often from potential clients.
What is your photographic style?
I consider myself a storyteller. An observer and documentarian seeking out moments and emotions that happen naturally. Moments that are reflective of your personality and an honest reflection of your wedding day.
How long have you been a photographer?
I’ve been a professional photographer since 1990 and began photographing weddings in 2005.
Will you be the photographer for my wedding?
Yes. You will always get me when you book with Seth Kaye Photography. There may be an additional photographer with us photographing your day, but I will always be the lead.
Our wedding isn't local. Can we still have you photograph our big day?
Yes! I’ve travelled throughout New England photographing weddings, from the Berkshires to Boston to Cape Cod, and from Vermont to Newport to Westport. If we’re not local to each other we can meet before your wedding via Zoom or any other video platform.
Do you carry business insurance?
Of course! I can easily supply your venue with proof of insurance if required.
Do you charge a travel fee?
There is only a fee for travel if we have to stay overnight instead of going out and back within the same day. In that case, the fee would be based on the distance we will travel and the amount of time my team and I are away from our home base.
Can I show you my Pinboard?
It’s sometimes nice to see what you’ve Pinned as a reference, but rather than copy another photographer’s images and recreate someone else’s wedding photography, we can instead use that as a jumping off point to create something unique for you. If those Pins evoke a particular feeling, we can work to make a portrait, for example, that is more representative of you and what you’re feeling on your wedding day.
What about a shot list?
My team and I work very hard to make sure you have complete coverage of your wedding day and to ensure your family portraits are complete. During our final consultation I’ll make notes about the timeline of your day and your details. The remainder of your wedding day, I’ll be in the moment to capture events and emotions as they happen, rather than checking items off of a list.
Do you photograph family portraits and details, along with the impromptu shots?
Absolutely! There are times during the day when some posing and prompting is needed. Family formals and portraits are two of these times. As for your special details, if it was worthy of being displayed on your wedding day, it’s worth photographing.
What are your fees and what do we get?
Let’s talk about that! Because everyone’s needs are a little different, I like to begin our relationship with a conversation. The number of hours I’ll be with you, whether one or two photographers are right for your wedding, and other options like wedding albums and engagement sessions can affect the amount of your investment. Send me an email with your wedding date and where your wedding will be, and we can schedule a time to talk about what level of coverage is right for you and what types of products you’re looking for.
How do we hire you?
When you feel confident I’m the best person to photograph your wedding we can move on to the next steps and reserve the date for you. Let me know it’s a match I’ll email a contract for you to complete and return.
