It is called an investment because your wedding photos will be an heirloom, a keepsake you and generations ahead will cherish for years to come. Once the vows have been made, the guests have said their farewells, and the cake has been eaten your photos will spark memories of your wedding day every time you look at them.
My style can be described as bright, airy and colorful. I love to capture candid and joyful moments in a photojournalistic style as moments unfold, including laughs, smiles and tears. I won't interrupt those special moments but will document them as they happen. I will make sure all the little details are styled from rings, shoes, perfume, to invitations as well and help you stay organized so nothing gets missed. We will work together to craft your perfect shot list so everything and everyone near and dear to you is included in your gallery. You will love to work with me if photography is one of your top priorities for your wedding day and you love and resonate with the style of my work.
Starting at $2,500
Getting married is such an important time in your life, and it should be documented in high quality way that will allow you to cherish this timeless moment for a lifetime. You will want to look back at your photos and wedding album and remember exactly how you felt on that day! I am honored to take the front row seat as you marry your best friend and begin a lifetime of love, light and adventure. Investing is something for couples who value wedding photography at the top of their list as well as a personalized experience, connection, and an heirloom keepsake from their wedding day. Our couples are romantics who love puppies, pastels, adventures, travel, snuggles on the beach, and joyful laughter!
Our starter collection is $2,500 and includes 6 hours of wedding day coverage with Alicia by your side and an online gallery of high resolution digital downloads. Most couples invest around $3,000-$4,500 between coverage and print products to complete the wedding experience. For your convenience, a $1,000 date reservation retainer is all that is needed to book me for your wedding day, the rest of the balance is divided into 4 equal payments spread out until the wedding day.
Engagement, anniversary, and couples | $375
Your engagement session occurs before the wedding and is a great warm up in front of the camera, so most of our collections include one. I really believe in the engagement session because they create the most adorable moments! Couples or anniversary portraits can be for any occasion when you just want to capture the two of you and celebrate your love! I know hundreds of gorgeous locations in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts for the perfect engagement backdrop and will help you prepare to look and feel your best. Sessions include a high resolution digital gallery for image download.

You will receive a payment timeline to schedule the rest of your payments equally split into 4 payments with a friendly reminder that a payment is due a few days before.
Who owns the images?
We both do! As the photographer and artist, Alicia Ann Photographie holds copyright on the images. But you are free to print them, share them and display them for personal use however you like. You can share your online gallery with guests, family and friends so they can download, print and share their favorite images as well!
How do we book you?!
Are you ready to say yes?! Yay! You can contact me with some details about your wedding day, location, and some tidbits of info about the two of you and we can go ahead and help you choose the perfect collection. I love to meet my couples for coffee or wine so we can get to know each other and I can answer all of your questions. Alicia Ann Photographie requires a $1,000 deposit to save your date on our calendar and an agreement we both sign. It's easy as pie!
I'd like less than 6 hours of coverage. Can you do that?
Of course! If you don't see the perfect collection to meet your needs I would be happy to customize something for you. I love to travel, so if you are eloping or just need a few hours for a ceremony and some formals I would be happy to give you a custom quote based on your needs.
How long do my photos take?
Within a day or two of your wedding I will post some sneak peeks on Facebook and Instagram, so make sure you friend me and follow me so I can tag you and you can see them right away. Contractually, because life happens, I state 8-12 weeks, however I have never hit either one of those numbers and have always had galleries done much sooner!
How many images should we expect in a final gallery?
For weddings it depends on how long I am there for and if a second shooter is also added. For a 6 hour wedding with me expect around 700 final photos. If your wedding coverage is longer or a second shooter is added expect 1200 or more!
For engagment or couples sessions expect 50+ images depending on how long your session is and how many locations we visit.
What if you haven't shot at my venue before?
Never fear, it's nearly impossible for a photographer to shoot at every lovely venue in New England! However if you love my style and we get along brilliantly, but are worried because I haven't been to your venue, here are some things to consider. First, I will gladly schedule a time with your venue to walk the property, get a tour and get some insider info on all the best spots for photos first hand as long as your venue is in New England. Second, I do extensive research online and look at blogs that feature your venue to see what other people have done. Third, as an artist photographers are absolutely amazing at pulling creative rabbits out of hats in less than ideal situations. I've shot beautiful images between thunderstorms and downpours, hiked to a couples dream location, climbed trees, waded in rivers, and just have an eye drawn to picturesque spots. I've never felt uncomfortable in a location I've never been to before, and am usually running around excited to explore the beauty of your favorite venue!
Do you photograph babies, families, Quinceaneras, Debutants, Bah Mitzvahs, or corporate events?
At this time I do not. I have chosen to specialize and excel strictly at couples and weddings, as well as ballet dancers and boudoir. I will be more than happy to refer you to some of my amazing industry friends that photograph moments that I do not and have a similar style to me!
What is your photography style?
I am a natural light photographer with a love for dreamy, romantic images. I love pastel color palates (especially blush and mint!), bohemian bouquets, sparkles, and natural imagery. I take a photojournalistic approach to the majority of your wedding day, but will help you stay organized and on time, direct family portraits, style details and accessories, and pose you naturally to make you look completely Pinterest worthy!
I do use flash and lighting for your reception and for some sunset and night photos, but try to stay away from it as much as possible as it can be a little too dramatic for me. I like to document the two of you exactly as you are, and while I use editing software to adjust images to my signature style, I do not manipulate images heavily in Photoshop or perform digital manipulations.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use professional grade Nikon equipment and accessories and back ups.
Can we meet you beforehand?
YES! After your initial inquiry I love to set up a phone chat or coffee (or wine!) date for me to meet the two of you, show you some prints and products and answer all your questions. I’m a huge fan of getting to know my clients in person so that when we hang out for your engagement session you will feel more at ease!
