I have tons on tips for first time wedding planners on how to save time and plan the perfect timeline. Bring your planners, lists and notebooks. I will be glad to answer all the questions you have.
Don't know what to ask? I got you covered! I have all the material you need right here in my office.
I would love to learn more about your wedding and all of the planning you're doing.
During these meetings we will get to know a little more about each other and go over the details of your day. This will help us determine your best coverage plan and make sure I know everything that is important to you.
I have so much to tell you...
I offer meetings with no strings attached where I go over all my services and samples.
Let's talk experience
So now that you know more about me, let's talk about what makes me different from all the great talent out there.
Along with my personal style, organization, professionalism and love for my craft, I bring over 6 years of experience in photographing weddings. In those years I learned that there is no one size fits all deal, each couple will stamp their own personal style to their day.
It's important to book a photographer you feel reflects the vibe and plans you have for your wedding.
LEARN ABOUT THE PROCESS
I love meeting with potential clients and talking about their wedding plans, that's why I offer a free initial consultation with no strings attached.
My office is located in Peabody, right by Brooksby Farm. I normally prefer having meetings here where I can show you all my samples so you can get a feel of my style and personality.
If Peabody is too out of the way for you I would be glad to talk over the phone about my services and answer any questions you might have.
THE FIRST STEP
Making it easy
During our initial meeting all of the details will be laid out and explained. All my contracts are done online and you can access it at anytime. A deposit is required to reserve your date and I provide a few different options of completing that. Once the contract is signed and deposit complete you'll be my priority for that date!
I know planning a wedding can be stressful so I pride myself in making this process as easy as possible for my clients.
READY TO BOOK?
Get used to being in front of the camera
Need outfit ideas? Location suggestions? Think you don't know how to pose?
I got you!
We will talk about all the details and I can guide you in any direction you envision your photos looking like. I also send out an engagement session guide that will walk you through each step of prepping for your shoot..
Don't know where to go? Worry not, I know a bunch of gorgeous locations and I've been told I'm a pro at guiding a beautiful and natural pose.
The engagement shoot
Your big day!
I work closely with all my clients to create the perfect timeline for their wedding day. I focus on maximizing coverage time, and I do that by avoiding little things that in the long run will waste a lot of time.
I will go over all the details of your day and make sure that when me and my team arrive, we will all be be prepared to get right into clicking! No sitting, waiting, wishing (even though I love that song).
The plan is to be prepared to cover every detail, uninterrupted and without delays.
Presentation of your gallery
For my clients convenience they will receive an online gallery as soon as the images are ready where they can download everything in high resolution. Within a few days they will also receive a personalized USB. The online gallery also makes it super easy to share the images with friends and family and even place professional print orders.
I also offer canvas prints, reception guest books and a variety of gorgeous wedding album styles and heirloom boxes.
HOW TO BOOK?
Fill out the form from the contact page and don't forget to include your special date. I'll get right back to you with my availability as well as my packages and full pricing guide.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Most definitely! My company is fully insured and I would be happy to provide your venue with an insurance certificate at no extra cost.
ARE ALL YOUR PHOTOS EDITED?
I wouldn't have it any other way! I am very particular about the quality and colors of my images. I go through every single image to make sure I deliver a consistent gallery full of beautiful shots.
CAN I SEE A FULL GALLERY?
Sure you can. Email me a request along with some info on your wedding and I'll share a couple of galleries that match your wedding vision.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
Delivery times vary from sessions to elopements to weddings. But its from 3-4 weeks to 6-8 weeks depending on the event. In the meantime there will be social media previews & blog posts.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
A full wedding gallery will vary from 750 to over 1,000 images. It depends on how many hours and photographers you book. I currently have galleries online that include 1,400 images. Not every wedding will reach that amount, but it will definitely stay within the average count.
DO WE REALLY NEED AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
I love engagement session because it's a way for me and my clients to learn about each other. You'll get comfortable behind the camera and learn my style of posing. I will learn about your personalities and what your best angles are.
When the big day comes around you'll be ready to hit those poses like a pro.
DO WE NEED A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
I need a little more information to answer that for sure. But in simple terms, if you're having a large wedding and need multiple angles covered, you do need a second photographer.
CAN I PRINT MY IMAGES? DO YOU OFFER PRINTS?
Yes and yes! You'll get a print release along with your contract which mean you can print anywhere. If you’re interested in ordering professional prints and canvases, you can do that from within your gallery and your images will be delivered directly to your doorstep! This is the most affordable and efficient way to print your images professionally while also guaranteeing perfect color in your images. Downloading and printing elsewhere may result in incorrect skin tones, but you are more than welcome to do so!
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes Please! I photograph all over New England and depending on the distance a travel fee may apply. I also cover destination weddings, special packages and pricing are available upon request.
ARE YOUR PACKAGES CUSTOMIZABLE?
Yes, in every way! I prefer the term proposals, because that's what they really are. Proposals of my most booked services. You can use those proposals and build a package that best fits your needs.
DO YOU OFFER BRIDAL BOUDOIR SESSIONS?
Girl, yes! I have a special "for your eyes only" package if you want to surprise your hubby with some super sexy and elegant photos on your wedding day.
Unfortunately I can't share any of those galleries online for privacy reasons. If you're interested in knowing more we can book a separate meeting or phone call to discuss all the secret details.
DO YOU ALWAYS WORK WITH THE SAME ASSISTANTS?
Not necessarily, but it's a rotation on the same 4 photographers. I've been working with these photographers for years. We all use the same equipment and they are all trained to match my style.
WHERE CAN I FIND FULL REVIEWS OF YOUR WORK?
Just click the pink links below! There are some great testimonials from past clients on my profile on:
Billy & Sarah
"She cared about the vision we had in mind for our ceremony, and her team delivered the goods. We were hardly aware on wedding day that they were there, snapping away and capturing all the fun and spontaneity that arose. They also did a great job coordinating the groomsman and bridesmaid photos. Roberta's team was fun, energetic and didn't get in the way of the ebb and flow of the ceremony and reception. If you want elegant bride and groom shots, fun group photos, and spontaneous candids, all tied together with an elegant consistency, call Roberta"
Tonida & Kenneth
"I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and knew I had to work with Roberta once I saw her pictures. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how her personality and passion matched her talent and I knew we had to book her!! I Could not have been happier with our choice to entrust Roberta with our big day!"
WE LOVED IT!
Jennifer & Joel
"We cannot say enough good things about Roberta! She's amazing. Her pictures are gorgeous, and we cannot stop looking at our wedding and engagement albums. Roberta was so easy to work with. She was great at communicating with us so that we knew exactly what to expect. She was very thorough and went above and beyond to make sure we got every picture we requested. She's also such a genuine and kind person, and really put us at ease for both our engagement shoot and our wedding day."
