Hello Bride & Groom-to-be! Congratulations on your recent engagement ~ I am sure your mind is spinning at the moment with all that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting, but it can also be a bit overwhelming. You’re planning for a big day you have been anticipating your entire life, yet you only get to do it once. My goal as a wedding photographer is to simplify this one aspect of the planning process. Photography is more than just images, it’s the memories you keep for years to come, memories that you will share with your family and children. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, but you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, it results in real, genuine images. Reach out to me about your photography investment and we can chat and get to know each other a bit. Wedding Collection 1 starts at $4250 and up from there and I am always happy to customize something very special for all your needs. No matter how big or small anything is possible. Engagement Sessions start at $350 for a one-hour session and $650 for a two-location shoot and up from here to include high-resolution electronic files – custom-made Signature Book for your Reception and custom Framing. Family Sessions in studio start at $ 150 and on-location sessions at the Beach or Park start at $250.

Questions – Answers
If you think I would be a good fit for your wedding day, please let me know and we can set up a time to meet!
Question: I love your photography! How do I book?
Answer: Feel free to email Sabrina by clicking on the Contact Page (She handles all the contracts and booking questions!) You can also make an appointment to come into the studio, located at 155 Water Street, Warren, RI.
Question: What forms of payment do you accept?
Answer: We happily accept VISA & MasterCard with a 3%service charge for all charges above $1250 … As well as personal checks ( no additional service charges apply) and of course, cash!
Question: Do your packages already have sales tax figured into them?
Answer: No! A sales tax of 7% RI will be added to whichever package you decide upon.
Question: Why would I choose a package over an ala carte selection?
Answer: Purchasing a package will save you money in the long run!
Question: I don’t think I want all the extras that come with purchasing a package. I’m really just interested in having my big day photographed with your vision. But, I would like to make my album myself.
Answer: Then an ala carte selection is perfect for you! You get the coverage you want… with a high res DVD of all your images after 6 months of online hosting!
Question: I noticed in a couple of your packages you have an engagement sitting included. What is the importance of them?
Answer: It breaks the ice, so to speak! You both will get a feel of how we all work together and a taste of what will come on your wedding day! It’s also a great way to have some casual and fun portraits of you and your sweetie to display at your reception on the day of your wedding.
Question: I love Scolari Photography but Sabrina is already booked on my special day! Does her associate, Lynne do weddings without her?
Answer: Yes! Lynne she has over 17 years of experience shooting weddings! She has a great attitude that will help you; your wedding party and your family feel at ease in front of the camera. (She takes all of her weddings seriously but tries not to take herself too seriously!)She will write up her own contract with you.
Question: How many images can I expect from my wedding day?
Answer: All weddings are different! You receive anywhere from 800 to 1400 photos or more.
Question: Will any of my images be B&W or Sepia?
Answer: Yes!! We select images from your wedding day to really emphasize the emotions, expressions, details, and love of that day with B&W as well as Sepia images too! We also love to do the “Color Splash” when the image calls for it… of course!
Question: How soon after my wedding should I expect my photos? High Res DVD or Flash Drive?
Answer: Your photos will be posted on a password-protected website after 7-8 weeks from your wedding date. Your High Res Flash Drive with all your images will be ready for you shortly after.
Question: Is the DVD or Flash Drive of all electronic files copyrighted?
Answer: No… Flash Drive does NOT have any logo or watermark on it! Feel free to share and make prints for personal use only! No third-party selling or online hosting on a web store with a shopping cart attached or commercial use is granted without our agreement of any images. I would suggest that if you are looking to do a larger wall portrait you do order it from me. I can give it that “Special Sabrina Scolari Treatment” and of course, professionally printed and mounted!
Question: I am really excited about my wedding album! I want it to be fabulous! How does it all work?
Answer: Sabrina and Lynne will design your album mostly in the off-wedding season from January to the end of April. Any Holiday rush ( Parent Albums – Gift Books) must be placed no later than November 15th. Once we receive the selection of images from you, you can expect a first draft layout in 6 weeks. (In the height of the wedding season things can get a bit hectic!) We offer modern, fun, and classic selections of wedding albums with a refreshing and organic look to it. Our Albums are made with the highest standard of album craftsmanship and stand to last for a lifetime. Our collection included classic silk fabrics with high-end paper for matting and backing. Flush Mount Albums or handcrafted matted albums are available.
Question: So how long will it take actually to get my album once the layout is approved?
Answer: 6-8 weeks after the final approval and payment is paid in full!
Question: I went with an Ala Carte Selection that does not include an album. Can I order one at a later date?
Answer: Of course, you can! Feel free to contact us any time. (Albums purchased more than 1 year from the wedding date will be subject to an additional charge of 10% from your original package.)
Question: What happens if I cancel?
Answer: All deposits are non-refundable. If you happen to reschedule, and we are available, then any deposits will be transferred to the new date!
Question: I am planning a destination wedding. Do you travel?
Answer: Have cameras! Will travel! Call, email, or make an appointment to come into the studio to discuss travel fees.
