Video

Lights, camera, action!
Why not be the star of your very own movie of one of the best moments in your life?

Video coverage will allow you to not miss a moment of your celebration. Hiring a professional videographer will guarantee it! We are often asked “Do I really need video if I have photography?” Photographs are a moment frozen in time that elicits feelings and emotion while video is pure entertainment and action and a very different capture. We feel it is a must if your budget will allow for video too. The band and entertainment and live music at your party is so important…why not relive all the action, music and live fun from your big day? It is also a wonderful opportunity to hear your family and friends give toasts and well wishes which through video can be documented for generations to come!

Video footage can be RAW or edited to music selections of your choice. Once edited we can create a 3-5-minute recap piece to share with all your guests and relive the party all over with them! This highlight reel can be part of your “thank you” to all and make them feel so special to be a part of your once in a life time day.

We take tremendous pride in our in-studio production team and all the work they do to make images look their very best. Our team processes and color corrects images before delivering to you. Should framed wall images or albums be ordered we will do more extensive work on each individual image. We are the cheapest and least painful face lift in town!

Yes! We have provided video services since we opened our studio many years ago! We provide fully edited videos. We feel video and photography are like peanut butter and jelly and should work as a team. Working with videographers that we know and work well with adds to your wedding day! We don’t run in front of each other’s cameras and respect each other’s art. We also offer drone coverage for events outside Manhattan. So fun!

Aside from 32 years of experience you can trust, what makes us most unique is the combination of impeccable customer service, follow through and care you will receive before, during, and after your wedding. What our brides and grooms value most is that we understand how important your once in a lifetime day is! We cater to your every need and offer you peace of mind: Our photographers are the artists; our studio is the backbone. We are also a full-service studio for all your photography, video or photo booth needs all under one roof.

Yes, we sell main albums as well as parent albums. We are known for our custom designed family heirlooms and if you want our help with this fun and creative process we would love to help. We design the most magnificent albums that will tell the story of your day. We value albums as they are a great way to share with future generations. Should you want to create your own albums you will have all the High Resolution images to do that. We are here to help! Albums range in pricing from $250.00 - $1,500.00 depending on what style, size and cover style.

Our style is a wide range from Photojournalism to Tradition. As photojournalists we will capture the feel of your day as well as take beautiful family portraits and capture those “must have” memories for all the generations.

We will help you through this process and ask you questions about your style and interests. We match up your personal style and taste with our talent after a we have and understanding of YOU – your personality, what you are looking for stylistically in terms of the photography itself, your budget, etc. There are differences in photographic style and approach for each artist as they are creative as well as unique in their own styles and approaches. We celebrate each couple and their own personal style on their wedding day. It is a collaboration with our studio.

We start with a two-person crew of a photographer and an assistant. The number of photographers for your wedding will depend on number of guests at your wedding and the layout and size of your venue. It is our goal to have fantastic coverage but also be a fly on the wall and capture behind the scenes and journalistic images and two shooters may be overkill for an intimate affair. We recommend 2 photographers for larger weddings for added coverage and a variety of angles with different lenses as well as style.

We love doing family portraits and will structure a timeline to do them before the day begins and usually pre ceremony. We will take formal portraits if the bride and groom want this. We encourage this great opportunity to capture grandparents with all the generations. After all…when was the last time your entire family got together and everyone was smiling??

We do not “count” how many photos we will take on your wedding day however we estimate 100 images per hour. We all know it isn’t quantity that makes wedding photography great but the quality of the images from your day. It is our goal to be 10 sets of eyes for you on your big day, as you will be in the heart of the party enjoying yourself - We are there to capture it all for you while you savor the moment!

We spend a lot of time editing your wedding images to provide the best images of the day. We process and color correct at this time and deliver images within 2 weeks after your wedding or sooner!

Many years ago, I think a wedding photographer must have come up with rain being Goodluck on a wedding day! Life happens and weather is no exception. We will always have a back up plan and make the best of rain as well as sunshine! Fun custom wedding umbrellas add to a rainy day.

We are very lucky to have a great track record and not have this situation occur more than a couple of times in the past 32 years. Photographers are human too and should something unforeseen happen… Sarah Merians herself would reach out to a couple with all their options of other talent available and collaborate on a solution with Sarah directly. Another option is to leave it up to us as pros to send another talented photographer from our team who we know you will also love and do a great and professional job for your big day.

We can capture your wedding in both black and white as well as full color. Here at our studio we encourage black and white for powerful and journalistic moments. This is a personal preference and unique to each couple as well as each image. This can be determined in the creative process in post-production when designing a wedding album if desired.

We will deliver images within one week after your wedding. Many brides and grooms will enjoy looking at their images while away on their honeymoon and reliving their day all over again as husband and wife! Many brides want to Instagram right away and we try to come through for them if we know this!

We are primarily a Canon studio shooting with Mark III and Mark IIII cameras. Some of our photographers use professional Nikon equipment too. We bring our own lighting if needed for indoor coverage ranging from on camera Canon flashes to Dynalite bounced room lighting to open the depth of images for overall crowd shots and more. We will bring umbrella lighting for beautiful soft portraits if the wedding requires this.

We are a full-service studio and encourage our clients to purchase prints for their homes or as great thank you gifts for the bridal party, parents, siblings, grandparents and friends. We take great pride in our work and will retouch these images and make them and you look your absolute BEST!
