how would you describe your style?
We love clean, bright, and happy images - and we're always on the hunt for the prettiest light! Our goal is to create beautiful and timeless photographs that even your grandchildren will love. We will capture your memories as they unfold, but will also give direction when it’s needed and help keep the day on schedule.
when & where do engagement sessions take place?
Typically we photograph engagement sessions during the week (Mon-Thurs) as weekend availability is very limited. The best time to start shooting is usually about 2 hours before sunset. Sessions take place within a 20 mile radius of your chosen photographer. If you have an engagement session location in mind, please let us know. Limited NYC sessions are available for an additional fee.
*Please note, Lauren offers only New Jersey sessions.
do you have any travel fees?
We love exploring new places and would love to travel for your wedding! Contact us for a custom travel quote.
how do we receive our photos?
You will receive an online gallery from which you can download all the high-resolution photographs, share online, and order professional prints. The wedding gallery will be ready about 10 weeks after the wedding. The engagement gallery will be ready about 4 weeks after the session.
how many pictures do we get?
We'll sort through each photograph to find the perfect smiles, the genuine emotion, and the all-around best moments that tell the story of your day. While we never limit your gallery to a number, Cassi Claire weddings can expect an average of 800 - 1,000 photographs. Cassi & Co. team weddings can expect an average of 600 - 800 photographs.
what is the deal with sales tax?
If your shipping address is in New Jersey, a la carte albums and collections with albums included will be subject to current NJ sales tax. If your collection does not include an album or you are located outside of New Jersey, we do not collect state sales tax.
can we share our photos online?
Absolutely! I love when you share your photographs! In fact, all of your friends and family will be able to download complimentary high-resolution digital photographs from your online gallery. We'd just love it if you can give us photo credit, as we never watermark your photos!
how do we order albums?
If your collection does not include an album, you may purchase albums and other products from the online shop at any time up to one year after your wedding date. Visit www.cassiclaire.com/shop
what is cassi & co?
Cassi & Co is a sub-brand of Cassi Claire Photography. It is our team of personally trained photographers that share the same passion for love, people, and photography as we do! Cassi was reaching full capacity every year, and it was so hard turning away amazing couples. By training a small team of photographers on our vision and mission, we are able to serve more couples and a variety of budgets. We always apply our boutique business philosophy so that no couple ever feels like just a number. Each team photographer accepts a small number of weddings per year and you will know who your photographer is from the start. Relationship is so important!
how does hiring cassi & co differ from hiring cassi claire?
Our Cassi & Co team photographers are artists with their own unique shooting style. While similar to Cassi Claire, these photos will represent the artist’s unique vision of your wedding day. The photographs will be edited in our signature “bright & happy” style! The Cassi & Co experience is perfect for those who want great wedding photography without all the bells and whistles. One main difference is that Cassi & Co couples are mostly served by Chris (Office Manager), while Cassi predominantly serves the couples hiring Cassi Claire directly.
we love you! how do we reserve our date?
Aww shucks! Let’s hop on Skype to meet face-to-face. We structure the initial meeting so that you are meeting with the photographer who will be with you on your wedding day. Photography is such an intimate part of the day, so we definitely want to feel comfortable with each other! Your chosen photographer will walk you through their process, the collections, and even help you map out a first draft of your wedding day timeline so you have an accurate idea of how much coverage you'll need. Together we can figure out the perfect collection for you! A 50% retainer and signed agreement are required in order to reserve your date. The remaining 50% is due 30 days before the wedding day. We accept payments through online ACH or check.
