You’re getting married! Congratulations! I’m a queer wedding photographer based on Cape Cod and I would be thrilled to work with you! I have over a decade of award-winning experience as a professional photojournalist and I have been in business as Salty Broad Studios for two years. As a member of the LGBT community, I understand how exciting and comforting it is to work with vendors who are “part of the family.” Not only will you be supporting a business certified by the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, but you will feel at ease knowing that you are working with an experienced professional that will deliver the highest quality pictures and customer service.
With Salty Broad Studios you will get creative, moment-driven pictures that tell your wedding day story. Leading up to the wedding, I deliver superior communication. I answer emails, texts and phone calls as soon as I receive them. On your wedding day, you will receive friendly, down-to-earth service! I strongly believe that your photo session should be fun! We should be laughing and enjoying the day! After the wedding, you will receive a sneak peek right away so you can share your joy with your friends and family and your complete final edit will be delivered within 30 days.
So, let’s chat! I love hearing about how my couples met! My wife and I met at Girls Pint Out, a ladies beer club, and had our first kiss on Cinco de Mayo, which is now our wedding anniversary. (yes, we had a Cinco de Mayo wedding).
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I have been working as a photojournalist since 2005 and I started shooting weddings in 2007.
How would you describe your style?
As a photojournalist, my emphasis is on capturing candid moments and making you feel comfortable. My goal is to capture pictures that reflect who you are as a couple. As part of my photojournalistic approach, I also believe that portraits and family formals should be an integral part of your collection. I urge my clients to set aside time on their wedding day for family formals and a private portrait session after the ceremony. Ultimately, how you spend your time on your wedding day is entirely up to you but investing in quality photography will provide lasting, tangible memories for your entire lives.
How many photos will I receive? How do you edit your photos? What’s the turnaround?
Generally, most couples receive over 600 edited images from their wedding day but it depends on how many hours you book. I pledge to digitally deliver those images to you 1 month after your wedding date. With your permission, I often post a sneak peek gallery on the Salty Broad Instagram page. I edit the best photos and weed out redundancies. You deserve to have only the best! I also believe in clean post-production practices. I am not going to disguise your natural beauty with trendy filters.
Do you ever use an assistant or second shooter?
I usually work alone, but it depends on the wedding. If there are many locations and hundreds of guests, I will likely bring on a second shooter.
Do you cover weddings off-Cape?
Yes, I book weddings any where in New England and beyond. If travel beyond a 60-mile radius is necessary, a travel fee will be assessed. If your wedding requires an overnight stay, the cost of the accommodations will be added to the package price.
If you are planning a destination wedding, count me in! I love to travel will and would be happy to be part of the festivities. For pricing info, check out my premium packages (Chapoquoit, Dowses and Race Point). Travel and overnight stays can be included in the package price in place of second shooter and/or an engagement shoot. Let’s talk to make sure the package price point works for your occasion!
What if it rains?
I am prepared for anything and everything. I always travel with a portable strobe kit and several flash units. If the weather brings us indoors, I have plenty of lighting devices to make you and your guests look great.
What kind of cameras do you use?
I use professional level Nikon camera equipment with a wide variety of lenses and lighting.
Who does your printing?
I use White House Custom Colour, a premier photo finishing lab trusted by industry professionals around the world. I highly recommend ordering printed products through my site for the sake of investing in quality and posterity. I keep my print prices reasonable because I am passionate about excellent presentation and accessibility.
What do you require for booking?
The signing of a contract and a 35% deposit.
