01. How would you describe your style?
My style is a mix of photojournalism with editorial, fashion-inspired portraiture. I mainly prefer to take a fly-on-the-wall approach, to let moments unfold naturally in front of me and to interpret them like a storyteller. When the moment is right, I also love creating stylized portraits of my lovely couple. Combining those two approaches results in what I believe is a beautiful and honest document of your wedding day.
02. Could we see a full wedding gallery?
Sure! Send me an email and I’d be more than happy to share a full gallery from a recent wedding.
03. Should we do an engagement session?
I love engagement sessions. Not only are they a chance for us to collaborate and create something authentic, they’re a chance for you to connect before the wedding, to get comfortable with each other in front of me and my camera so that when the big day arrives, you are comfortable, relaxed, and completely in the moment.
04. Do you take family photos on a wedding day?
YES! While they may not get as much feature time on my website as some other parts of the day, I consider family photos to be one of the most important things on a wedding day, and I always make sure to carve out time to capture them.
05. What equipment do you use?
I shoot with two Sony digital cameras and use the following prime lenses: 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 135mm
06. Do you have insurance?
Absolutely! Lev Kuperman Photography is insured through Hill & Usher for liability coverage of up to $2,000,000. Let me know if your venue requires a certificate of insurance.
07. Do you travel for weddings?
Definitely. If your wedding is less that 2 hours away from NYC then I wouldn’t typically charge anything additional, but if it’s further than that, I would just need lodging accommodations and a travel fee (or plane ticket, depending on the place).
08. How many images do we get?
For an average 8-hour wedding, I usually deliver between 500-700 fully-edited images.
09. When do we get our pictures?
I typically send my couples a few epic previews a week after the wedding and the rest of the edited images will be delivered via digital download in 10-12 weeks.
10. How many weddings do you shoot per year?
I limit myself to around 25 weddings per year. It is incredibly important to me to give all my clients my full attention, and to be fully dedicated to each and every wedding and keep things fresh and exciting for myself.
11. We’d love to book you! What are next steps?
All that’s required in booking me is a signed agreement and retainer. Dates are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and most couples book me about 9 months in advance.
