"ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT WORKING WITH HOLP IS THAT THEY DON'T MISS A THING. WHEN I THOUGHT THEY WERE FOCUSING ON CLASSIC PORTRAITS, THEY WERE ACTUALLY GETTING MOMENTS AND SPECIAL MEMORIES WE'LL NEVER FORGET."

JESSICA + JOHN

 
 

WE KNOW HOW MUCH TIME AND CARE GOES INTO PLANNING EVERY LAST DETAIL FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY. THOSE DETAILS ARE CREATING A SCENE, TELLING A STORY OF YOUR LOVE AND HOW YOU TWO CAME TO BE HUSBAND + WIFE. FROM THOSE SPECIAL MOMENTS WITH YOUR CLOSEST FRIENDS AS YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR WALK DOWN THE AISLE, WHEN YOUR BEST MAN GIVES YOU ONE FINAL TOAST BEFORE YOU SEE YOUR BRIDE, THAT LAST CHECK IN A MIRROR, WE'RE THERE. 

 

FROM YOUR CEREMONY TO YOUR RECEPTION, AS A COUPLE/TEAM, WE USE OUR INTUITIVE CONNECTION TO GRAB THOSE MOMENTS - FROM PHOTOS WITH FAMILY AND CHERISHED MEMORIES WITH YOUR FRIENDS,.. A SWEET CUDDLE BEFORE BEING ANNOUNCED INTO YOUR CELEBRATION, TO A QUICK "SNEAK OUT" AFTER DARKNESS FALLS AND THE STARS COME OUT TO SHINE - WE CELEBRATE WITH YOU, DOCUMENTING AND CAPTURING AS WE GO.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
and other musings

 

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDING?
Yes. Most of our travel is between Massachusetts, Rhode Island and the rest of New England (shout out to New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and Connecticut!), we love new adventures and would be happy to join you anywhere on the map to document your special day. 

WHY DO YOU INCLUDE AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN ALL YOUR COLLECTIONS?
Engagements sessions are more than just an opportunity to get photos to use on stationery or to display at your wedding. We use them as a couple of hours to hang out, get to know each other, observe you together and get you out of your comfort zone. We want to get you warmed up and ready for your wedding day so we don't take up too much of your day with photos and let you get to your party quicker. 

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
We both use the latest in Nikon professional DSLR bodies, a variety of lenses as well as external lighting to create dimension. Film coverage is available, and is shot on both Nikon and Pentax camera bodies.

HOW MANY PHOTOS SHOULD WE EXPECT TO RECEIVE?
The number of images received is variable, based on a number of different things, like size of bridal party, size of guest list, weather, venue flexibility, etc. However, we always, always document your day from the moment we get there until the moment we leave and strive to get you images from every moment, whether you remember it happening or not. Our average is 600-800 images per wedding, with some receiving a little less, and some receiving more. That's purely empirical data. 

HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR FINAL IMAGES?
All of our clients receive their images through an online gallery for easy viewing, sharing with family and friends and downloading. Portrait sessions take about 3 weeks to be processed and weddings can take up to 8 to 12 weeks. 

WHAT IS YOUR "STYLE"?
Our style is rooted in "moments" based photojournalism and heavily influenced by fine art photography, capturing natural, organic moments as they happen. Our imagery is fun, clean, bright, timeless, luxurious and emotionally captivating. It's not always the big picture that takes a lot of planning and time to execute that will be your favorite. It's usually a number of the smaller, less pivotal moments that tell the story that will speak to you on a deeper level. 

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?
Once you have a date set, we can move forward with booking. To reserve your day, we require a signed contract and retainer. Shoot us a message [HERE] to get started! 

WHAT ELSE DO WE HAVE TO KNOW?
Mike is always in a suit. I'm always in a dress or in equally fabulous attire. We want to blend in with your guests as much as possible and become a part of the background. We keep our gear on us, and avoid any bulky, attention getting equipment. We enjoy hors d'oeuvres and base our favorite venues on their quality of finger foods. And cake. We really love cake (and donuts.)
