Russ and Liz Caron are a full time, husband-and-wife wedding photography team. Shooting every wedding together, they ensure seamless wedding day coverage of your most spontaneous and emotional moments, as well as those of your families and friends. Environmental portraitists, they excel at capturing you in the landscape of your wedding day and location. Acting as your visual journalists, creating cherished, life-long memories, with image-based storytelling, is one of the highest honors for them. To capture the emotion, the love, the joy that your wedding day brings is something that is accomplished quietly and effectively, ensuring that your wedding photography integrates perfectly with your special day. Russ and Liz shoot with an unobtrusive editorial/documentary style and blend well-planned and gorgeous portraits, details, moments, and artistic bride and groom poses that look fluid and natural. All this from two of the nicest and most professional people you'll have the pleasure of working with.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

We are located in southern Maine and photographs weddings from Boston to Bar Harbor, Maine, and beyond. Travel to many, but not all, locations is included. We also photograph destination weddings in the Caribbean and Italy.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

We've been in business since 2004 and have photographed over 500 weddings since then.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Our contemporary style embodies several elements in a perfect fusion: we're environmental portraitists; and we excel at bridal portraits, journalistically-captured candid and emotional moments, directed artistic photos that don't look "posed"; and we capture details as well as the classic family formals. We have an efficient system that allows us to achieve the family photos without a substantial amount of time taken from the wedding day.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Our most popular package consists of Russell as lead photographer for 10 hours and Liz as second photographer for 8 hours; includes an engagement session, and high-resolution digital files with copyright license with unlimited personal use rights, and costs in the upper $4,000 price range.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

We have a studio/office where we meet clients. We often also meet clients at an intermediate point or in Boston. Skype and FaceTime are available, too, though we love an in-person meeting when we can. We are also very accustomed to closing deals via phone and email as most of our clients don't live near us; Maine is a destination wedding state for many.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

Russell is: a Certified Professional Photographer with the Professional Photographers of America (PPA); is a degree candidate for the Master Photographer degree (expected to be earned in 2016 via Int'l Image Competition) from the PPA; a workshop and conference leader and speaker; and is past president of the Maine Professional Photographers Association. 
When not teaching courses, Russ and Liz attend a wide variety of conferences, conventions, classes and workshops on wedding photography.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

We're a full-time, husband-and-wife, weddings-only photography studio. We're experienced and professional and are loved by our clients; and most of all, we LOVE weddings!
