Kind Words from Emily & Thomas
Deciding to hire Tricia to capture our wedding at the Cranwell this October was one of the best decisions that we made when planning our wedding. As a couple that was definitely working to create a magical day on a budget we debated working with some local photographers that were a bit more affordable than Tricia and her team. However, when we compared their portfolios to her work, we fell in love with Tricia’s blend of beautifully framed candid shots and more traditional wedding portraits. The quality of her work was evident, and we decided it was worth the price.
What we did not know was how seamless and comfortable working with Tricia would be. Since we do not live locally, Tricia invited us to meet her for coffee when we were in the Berkshires meeting with other vendors. She immediately put us at ease, eager to learn the tone and style we were hoping to emulate. Before the wedding day, she was sure to do her research, asking us to provide her with lists of the types of photos we wanted her to capture and working with us to create a detailed timeline of the day. This not only helped us feel confident that we would capture the moments that would otherwise slip by us, but also helped inform the timeline we created for the other vendors we were working with. On the day of the wedding, Tricia was again incredible! We were running a bit behind schedule, but Tricia and her team found ways to fill the time, capturing beautifully staged photos of the small details that might otherwise have been forgotten in the future. When I became nervous as things ran behind, she was cool and calm, and super flexible as timelines began to shift due to a few little surprises. She even chauffeured some of our wedding party from the church back to the Cranwell when one of our shuttles failed to show up! So many of our friends and family members commented on how friendly and professional Tricia and her staff were throughout the day. They seemed truly invested in capturing the most beautiful memories, and were just all around lovely people to be around. A few more unexpected surprises that came about while working with Tricia:
• She’s available for questions! Throughout the planning process I had a few random questions. She was always quick to respond, and even provided advice and suggestions when I had general Berkshire questions, unrelated to her services.
• She will make you look a lot better than you do in real life! My husband and I had never had our photos taken professionally. We were a little concerned that we would look awkward and stiff in these photos that we were investing so much in capturing. Tricia is an expert at making you look and feel much less like you’re in the middle of a big photo shoot and more like you’re making a special memory with your new spouse.
• The gallery of digital photos she sends you is gorgeously curated! I expected the final files she sent to feel rawer than they did. You can tell that she’s corrected the color, strategically cropped, and removed the terrible photos from the final gallery that she sends.
If you are considering working with Tricia for your wedding, you should definitely go for it. Tricia and Lisa, we can’t thank you enough for doing such an incredible job photographing our wedding. Your photos captured our vision for the day so perfectly and will be cherished for years to come!
