. . . a unique appeal like none other

My Approach:

  I'm Pete Black, a Wedding photographer with an appealing, complete and unique service for your Wedding:  high quality memories captured at an affordable $1975 bottom-line cost for 2014 & 2015, just like 2012 & 2013.  I shoot with my digital Canon EOS 5D Mark II, a 21.1 megapixel camera and I have two Canon 5D 12.8's as backups, though I've never needed them.  I typically capture a minimum of 1500 digital pictures (usually many more) and the new couple gets a minimum of 400 ~ 4x6 prints in two attractive modest albums and all 1500+ digitals on DVD’s for reprints and enlargements with no copyright restrictions whatsoever.  (I HAVE A FILM ONLY OPTION IF PREFERRED.)

 Coverage is included for the entire Wedding Day, starting with capturing finishing hair and makeup touches on the Bride-to-be and her girls at the beauty salon!  I’ll get all the special moments of the Wedding ceremony, including Moms ushered to their seats, Bridesmaids’ processions, the Bride’s entrance, an admiring Groom’s welcome, lighting the unity candle, ring exchanges, vows, that first kiss, and so very much more.  I'll capture shots from a back balcony and different vantage points and angles without being obtrusive and in the way!  Your family and friends are there to see a beautiful Wedding ceremony, not an obnoxious distracting photographer!  The sanctity of the moment will be respected!

   At your Reception, I’ll get shots of receiving lines, family & friends signing the guestbook, lots of table shots of guests, countless couples, bridal party introductions, first dances, champagne toasts, cake cutting, impromptu gatherings, kids’ antics, garter and bouquet tosses, suprprise and unexpected moments and all that partying late into the reception!  Let family and friends know they should stop me any time for pictures they know you will love!  Many of the best shots I'll capture are ones I "steal" from someone else who has pulled a group together!  You'll get everything I shoot!  I'll be going non-stop, but I won't be in people's faces!  I’ll stay shooting till the happy Couple drives off into the sunset with tin cans tied to their car’s bumper!  I turn out the lights at the Reception!  I have no time limitations!  I'm not a clock watcher, except to be on time where you want me and when you want me! 

 

My Credentials:

    I have covered close to 500 Weddings in the past dozen years. My first Wedding was in 1998 in Atlanta, Georgia  with our baby sitter's Wedding.  She had grown up and was getting married, but wasn't going to have a photographer and I decided to bring my camera to her Wedding .  Most of my Weddings have been in the Connecticut since 2002, but I have also covered Weddings in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, and Washington State.  It's a work I love and I've averaged close to 40-50 Weddings each year on a full time basis.  With no obligation on the part of a couple, I meet to show my Wedding Portfolios, but before that, this on-line link to Shutterfly will let you see many samples of memorable Wedding moments I’ve captured.  Just call (860)434-6829 or email me L5226@hotmail.com  for more information.  If you like what you see and hear, we’ll meet & I’ll show even nicer renditions in my portfolios.  Computer scans don’t do the originals justice and besides, I feel it’s important for a couple to feel good about the person who captures fleeting images of one of the biggest days of their lives!

 

My Fees:

   The total fee for a Wedding in 2014 & 2015 is just $1975, just like it was in 2012 & 2013.  When a Couple decides on my services, I require a $175 deposit, a $700 payment 60 days prior to the Wedding, and the balance when the completed Albums and digitals on DVD’s (or negatives) are turned over to the new Couple about 10 days after the Wedding.  If you wish, I can help with reprints, enlargements, deluxe albums, picture frames, CD renditions, special effects editing and other matters, but remember: all digitals on DVD’s (or negatives) are yours to do the same whenever and wherever and however you choose with no copyright restrictions whatsoever!

     Too often, many other photographers charge $3000 or $4000 or much more for only a very basic service, no rehearsal familiarization option*,  no full Wedding day coverage, fewer pictures, no CD’s of digitals, no copyright releases, no negatives,  no video on DVD’s option*, no flexibility, and no engagement photoshoot option* but they usually can tack on hefty surcharges for some of these extras!  Many other photographers frown  on family & friends taking pictures with the photographer, but I welcome others capturing those same memories!

 

*Engagement photoshoot, Rehearsal coverage & Video -  (3 options, just $100 each in 2014 & 2015)

 

A Final Note:

   I tailor my style to what the couple desires and I work within the wishes of the Family and the Pastor or other Officials presiding over the sacred ceremony.  I humanize the collection and get the warmth & emotions of the entire day. Whether I am the Photographer you choose or not, thank you for your consideration, and I wish you a beautiful Wedding Day & a lifetime of happiness together!

Thank you for your interest in my Wedding Bells Photography service described here and I've included many samples to view as well ~  memorable moments where I enjoyed being at the right places at the right times.  Many of these are posed and formal, but even more are candid and impromptu.   Not every picture should be a “one-two-three-smile-click” shot!!!

 

I hope this isn't overload, but I've also included some of the nice couples I've served and examples from their  Engagement photoshoot option.  (Getting together for Engagement shots is another time for the couple to get to know me better and to talk more about Wedding day.)  Do you recognize anyone in these collections?  :)

 

Finally, I've even sprinkled in some Rehearsal shots into these samples.  Rehearsals support is an option to pick out the best places to be on Wedding Day.  Besides, I like to meet the Bridal party and family and friends who will be there and break the ice with them.  I'll also take a lot of shots which will be fun to compare to Wedding day!

 

Try and find someone else who does it all like this!  Computer scans are not as nice as the renditions I can show in my portfolios, but you’ll still get an idea of my style here.  Even if we never meet, choose someone experienced, reliable, flexible and personable to capture the right memories for you.   Happy planning, enjoy your Wedding day and love each other every day!

 

Pete

I had Pete photograph my wedding this year in May and my guest are still talking about him today. He is an amazing photographer and captured all of our memories. His personality is amazing and you will feel like you have known him for years. He goes out of his way just to make sure he gets the shot. For example, we were in the limo going to the church and who do we see driving by with the camera out the window....PETE, just making sure he didnt' miss a moment. I would recommend him to anyone!! THANKS PETE FOR EVERYTHING!!!!
