Let's Get Started On Your Journey!

I live for the emails, calls, and referrals I receive for weddings, elopements, and just about everything else. Let me show you why we'd be a perfect fit for your day! If you'd like to email me directly: caitee@caiteesmithphotography.com


How far in advance do we need to book?

I recommend booking 6-18 months in advance from the busy season, as prime and last-minute dates fill up quickly.

How do we book?

I require a signed contract, as well as a non-refundable 50% retainer payment, both due at the time of booking in order to hold your wedding date. I'll also send you a comprehensive questionnaire that covers your timeline, shot list, vendor list, and so much more. Before this, we'll have a phone/video call or coffee date to talk about your wants and needs!

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes! I require a non-refundable deposit to hold your date and will then spread payments across four installments, depending on your needs.

How many photos can I expect?

While I'd love to send you EVERYTHING, I find it important to sift through the less-than-perfect photos, duplicates, blurs, and blinks, and not give you a million photos to view. You can expect about 100 photos per hour, between 600-1200 photos in your final gallery.

When can we expect our sneak peeks and full gallery?

Your sneak peeks are my top priority following your big day. You can expect to receive 15-30 sneak peeks within 48 hours! Your full gallery can typically be expected within 4-6 weeks. The exception to this is if your wedding is in the middle of busy season, i.e. September. The expected turnaround time for this time of year is 6-8 weeks.

Will there be a second shooter?

If your package includes one, YES! Second shooters are great for capturing groom prep and comprehensive ceremony coverage, as well as other little moments.

Can you help us plan?

Of course! When it comes to creating your timeline or shot list, I am here to help! Unsure of your color palette, which vendor(s) to use, where your engagement session should be, or if you should do a First Look? We can tackle these questions together. (:

Can I extend the hours on the day of?

Yep! My overtime rate starts at $600 per hour.

Can you change your editing style for us?

My signature style is very light and airy while retaining true colors as much as possible (no oompa loompa skin tones here.) If you seek another editing style, I may not be the photographer for you!

Do you shoot weddings outside of NY and NJ? What about worldwide?

Absolutely I do! Depending on your wedding or elopement location, I may charge a travel fee to cover my getting there. You can put me on a plane and send me anywhere you'd like!
