Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

What should we look for in a Wedding Photographer?

ANSWER

This is my dream for you: when you look at the photos, you feel good. When you talk to them, you feel taken care of. They have tons of experience, know how to keep a cool head under pressure, can handle your Uncle’s bad jokes, and remember to dry off the bottom of your bouquet before you leave for your First Look. They feel like a part of your family and will for many years to come, even after your wedding.

QUESTION

What are your rates?

ANSWER

In the interest of providing you with the best experience and results possible, I primarily offer full day coverage. Wedding days are extremely fluid events, and this allows us me take the day as it comes and relieves all of us of any photo-related stress! Most couples will invest between $4,000 and $10,000 for full wedding days/weekends. Special pricing is available for elopements and small weddings–just let me know what you’re planning and what you’re looking for from your photographer!

QUESTION

How many hours does “Full Day Coverage” include?

ANSWER

I loosely define “full day” as beginning 60 minutes prior to you getting dressed through about 45 minutes of open dance floor time. This usually works out to about 8-11 hours, but we will work together to determine the best timeline for your specific day. I want to be there to capture it all!

QUESTION

We don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera. How can you help?

ANSWER

I totally know how you feel. When it comes to your portraits, I'm just going to keep things fun and romantic! There’s no need for you to “model,” instead I’ll help guide you through things to do and ways to keep the focus on each other, not on the camera. This is one reason I highly recommend an engagement session–it’s the perfect way for us to get to know each other and for you to get a little practice in.

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

Where are you located? Do you travel?

ANSWER

I currently live in Boston, MA but frequently shoot all over Massachusetts & New Hampshire and around the globe. If your wedding is a non-local area, I ask for a flat fee to cover gas/airfare and accommodations. Wherever you’re getting married, I’ll go there!.

QUESTION

How far in advance should we reach out?

ANSWER

Most couples reserve their date between 8-18 months in advance. I highly recommend getting in touch sooner rather than later, especially for popular fall dates in Massachusetts. Once you have your date and venue set feel free to drop me a line!

QUESTION

How do we book?

ANSWER

To make things official I require a signed contract and 50% retainer. Email me or use the contact form and we can get the ball rolling. I can’t wait to hear about everything!

QUESTION

Do you offer Albums and Prints?

ANSWER

Yes! I firmly believe that you should have a printed copy of your photos. You can order a custom album through me, but there is also an option to design your own album or order prints through your gallery, which is pretty cool. You are also welcome to take your files to any printer of your choice.

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

How would you describe your style?

ANSWER

My style is romantic, natural and rich. My goal is to capture the day not only through my lens, but through yours as well–the colors and setting you’ve chosen, the weather, your energy–everything that makes your wedding unique. I think my photos have a bit of an “editorial” feel, but my goal is for each image to be a piece of art for you to keep and share forever.

QUESTION

Can you recommend some videographers/florists/etc. that you love?

ANSWER

Big yes. I have a ridiculously detailed planning guide that I will send you that walks you through the day and includes an extensive list of my favorite vendors in the area. I know how hard it is to plan a wedding and I am here to make your life easier however I can.

QUESTION

Have you shot at our venue before?

ANSWER

Maybe! But if I haven’t, that’s really exciting–I am so inspired by new locations and will be sure to spend plenty of time before your wedding scouting out photo spots.

QUESTION

How many images will we receive?

ANSWER

For most weddings, I deliver between 700-900 photos. For portrait sessions you can expect between 75-100. All of your images are delivered through a really beautiful online gallery, after that they’re yours forever! You can download and share as often as you want.

Qian photographed our wedding and I was absolutely in love with her work
before we had even met. SHE THINKS OF EVERYTHING. I don’t even think I
can describe how great she was to us. She also photographed my Bridal boudoir session and made me laugh and feel so comfortable the whole time. She made sure I was prepared on my wedding day for things I would never think of. She is kind and very dedicated and she will forever be our photographer for any large events in the future. She went above and beyond my expectations and heard all of my concerns. She made all of the moments leading up to our big day so special. All I can say is THANK YOU!

My husband and I both just love her so much! Qian photographed my wedding and oh my gosh! I had only talked with Qian through email and the phone prior to our wedding and be because of how sweet and friendly she is I felt like I already knew her. She is so professional and reliable. My husband and I were worried about looking awkward in front of the camera and Qian made us so comfortable. Our moments with her were so fun and enjoyable. Qian completely surpassed my dreams with how beautiful our photos are. Qian is a 10/10! Book her and you will not regret it.

Q is incredible!! From day one she was so professional and was such a joy
to work with! She did our engagement photos and wedding day photos and
they are absolutely breathtaking! Our wedding was at the end of October
and we received our wedding album at the beginning of December! So fast!
She took time out of her schedule to come and meet with me to discuss the
photos and album plans. Whenever I had a question she responded to me
immediately. Her work is awesome and her level of professionalism is
second to none. I plan on hiring her for whatever future professional photos
I may need!

During the planning process, Qian was excited to learn about us and get to know us as a couple prior to meeting. This really helped ease our nerves on our wedding day. Qian truly made us feel so beautiful, empowered and comfortable throughout the evening. She was professional, had a fun and happy demeanor and is an extremely talented photographer. After the wedding, all we've got is our memories and Qian captured every moment so perfectly. The photos came out great! We look forward to working with her again in the future!!

Qian was beyond amazing to work with! I was planning a NH wedding from NC and photography was one thing I never had to worry about. Qian was detail oriented, so friendly, very professional, made us feel at ease during the planning process and during photos on our wedding day. You would have thought we had known her for years, not only officially met in person the day of our wedding, by how well she blended in with our families. Communication was easy and efficient before and during our event. Qian has an amazing eye for detail and we could not be happier with our photos, just beautiful. I was also so glad she agreed to do a small boudoir session on my wedding day - talk about beautiful photos in a lace robe or less looking at my dress! Pure art! Memories that will last forever! Qian - and our florist - was the best vendor decision we made. You will not be disappointed if you book with Qian!!!!
