“We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. We take photos to recall – with greater vibrancy – those experiences that have shaped and made us. We take photos to bridge distance and shorten time, to lend legacy to the little things and life to the forgotten.”
– Katie Thurmes –

Q: WHAT’S YOUR APPROACH TO SHOOTING WEDDING?
I thrive to document your wedding day authentically as it unfolds in front of me. My goal is to be as unobtrusive as possible while capturing the reality of the event with little interference. Instead of focusing on creating a “perfect” wedding through poses and scene manipulation, I prefer to step back and let your unique story – with your honest emotions and your intimate relationships – shine through. I also believe that natural lights bring the best out of people so I thrive to use available light as much as possible. This helps me to create a fresh and honest feeling in my work.
Q: WHAT’S YOUR APPROACH TO SHOOTING ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
I love to capture people in love and the chemistry between them, whether in places that hold special meaning to the couple or during a getaway adventure. The most important thing for me is to get to know you and connect with you on a personal level. It is, to me, the ultimate way to capture your love as it really is.
An engagement session is more like us hanging out in a relaxing atmosphere and while we explore the locations together, I’d document your story in your own space, with your own personalities and uniqueness. And of course, I’ll use my experience and expertise to help make things more natural when needed.
Q: WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED & DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
I’m based in Boston, MA but I love to travel nationally and internationally for bookings. Oh, my itchy feet!
Q: DO YOU SHOOT ELOPEMENTS?
Yes, absolutely! I love shooting elopements, especially an adventure one in the great outdoors. Please contact me and I’ll share my elopement information.
Q: HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE GET?
There really is no set number as I take as many photos as needed to cover your wedding story. Usually, I deliver around 350 – 600 photos, depending on the hours and the number of events. Every photo is professionally edited/ retouched and ready for print.
Q: DO WE GET HIGH-RESOLUTION FILES?
Of course! You’ll have access to your private online gallery with a curated collection of high-resolution images. The photos will also come in low-resolution form in case you want to use them on social media.
Q: WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? DO YOU USE BACKUPS?
I use professional full frame Canon bodies & lenses; and of course, I always have backups with me. Your wedding photos are also backed up immediately after your wedding.
Q: WHEN WILL OUR PHOTOS BE READY?
For Spring and Winter seasons, it takes about 4 weeks; and for peak season (May – October), it takes up to 6 weeks.
