I value the hard-working, down-to-earth couples who, like me, appreciate life's little moments the most. Whether it's spending some quiet time together over a cup of coffee, enjoying a summer evening with friends around a fire pit, or appreciating having the whole family around the Thanksgiving dinner table, I believe it's the relationships we build and the connections we share that matter the most.
The majority of my couples usually tell me they don't prefer the spotlight and are unsure of how to pose on-camera. Not to worry! I give plenty of posing direction so you look like naturals!
I will be there for you for every step of the way. It's my goal to keep you calm and confident on your wedding day so you can remain 'in the moment' and enjoy the entire experience while I'm capturing all the moments. I want this to be an experience you cherish forever!
- WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE? -
Timeless, Authentic & Clean. I capture a range of photographs throughout your wedding day from candid to posed photographs. But when it comes to the 'posed' photographs of the two of you, I want them to look and feel as candid and genuine as possible. I believe in natural posing where you both will look and feel natural. I'll prompt you with certain cues to bring out your true smiles and laughs, and help you feel like yourselves during your engagement session and especially on your wedding day.
So what about all those candid moments throughout the wedding day? I believe in being as unobtrusive as possible so that you hopefully forget that I'm there, whether it's your ceremony or reception.
- HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU BEEN DOING PHOTOGRAPHY? -
7+ years. I started in the TV production, specifically Live broadcasts. Trust me, working in Live TV prepared me extremely well to deal with the quick decision-making skills needed in a wedding photographer.
- HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS DO YOU INCLUDE IN YOUR PRICING? -
All of my wedding collections include myself and one of my second-photographers for thorough coverage. My second photographers are usually someone who works with me on a regular basis.
If you only need one photographer, I can provide a custom quote.
- IS AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION INCLUDED IN THE PRICING? -
All wedding collections 8 hours or more include a complimentary 90-minute engagement session, during which I hope for our friendship to begin as I help you two become camera-ready for your big day!
- HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO YOU TYPICALLY DELIVER? -
Between 50-100 photographs per hour of coverage. An 8-hour wedding yields up to 800 photographs.
- HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS? -
All of my wedding collections include a downloadable gallery that includes the final, edited, high-resolution photographs! But my preferred collections also include a 10x10 wedding album with your favorite photographs to preserve your wedding story forever.
- DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE? -
Yes, Liability & Equipment insurance, and am willing to provide a Certificate of Insurance to your venue upon request.
- HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL? -
I'm based in Simsbury, CT and service all of Connecticut. I'm available for out-of-state and destination weddings as well! All travel outside of Connecticut includes a travel fee.
- WHAT'S YOUR BOOKING PROCESS? -
A $1,000 non-refundable retainer with a signed contract is required to reserve your wedding date. I will not book any other weddings on your wedding date.
"Hiring Nick Cinea was the best decision we ever made! His work truly speaks for itself, but his professionalism, calm demeanor, and down-to-earth nature had me dub him my 'BFF' for the weekend, as I knew I could depend on him for any little thing I needed. We absolutely adore Nick, and you will never regret hiring him!"
