We love your work but our event isn’t in the Midwest. Do you travel?
I think you would be hard-pressed to find a wedding photographer that doesn’t travel these days and I am, of course, no different. But unlike most wedding photographers, I do all the work for you. I make my own travel arrangements, arrive a day or two early, and include multiple day coverage for weekend getaways. This way, everything gets covered and you don’t need to worry about a thing. Because you’ve hired a wedding photographer you trust and I take care of myself, you can worry about more important things (like getting married, for instance).
Will you (Sarah) personally shoot our wedding? Do you bring extra photographers?
If you hire Parisi Images to photograph your event, I (Sarah) will be the one behind the lens. I photograph all events on my own, but may bring an assistant to your event should I feel it be necessary. If you want to make sure your event is captured from different angles, I also work with a handful of carefully chosen second-shooters, all of whom are professional photographers in their own right. If this is something you are interested in, please let me know!
Do you shoot video?
At this point, Parisi Images only offers still photography. Please contact us for personal recommendations on videographers for your special event.
How long have you been a wedding photographer? Did you go to school for this?
I photographed my first wedding in 2006 and have been growing ever since! And why, yes, I did study art in college where I received a B.S. in both photography and graphic design. I’m lucky to be is one of those rare people who still uses her degree everyday. (And I wouldn’t have it any other way!)
What kind of equipment do you use
I photograph all of weddings with professional-grade Canon cameras and lenses.
Why should we invest in an album?
It’s my fervent opinion that images are meant to be experienced. In this digital age, we often forget the physical nature of photography. Because I’d truly hate to see your memories trapped on a computer monitor, Parisi Images offers several products to bring your story to life. I believe that photography is best viewed in person, in real life. They’re best experienced with each of your senses. Do you remember eagerly looking at your parents’ wedding album? The tactile sensation of turning the pages; the smell of leather, dust, and binding glue; hearing your mom exclaim “can you believe my hair back then!” At Parisi Images, I seek to recreate this experience for you and your family.
We want to hire you to photograph our wedding! Now what?
