Services + Info
I am a Brooklyn based photographer who specializes in capturing intimate and joy-filled events. How does that translate to my clients? Simply put, it means that my approach is to capture the authentic, real, and unscripted in-between moments that make your day truly special. At my core I'm an a creative documentary photographer who likes to be a "fly on the wall" as your event unfolds, and while my style is very much photojournalistic, I also love adding editorial and fine art portraits into the mix. I realize that this approach is not for everyone. I'm not a commercial or boutique photography studio, I don't focus on the glamorous details of a wedding or the grandioseness of a venue. I care about how your love sets you apart.
It's important to me that every couple I work with is a good fit and that we get to know one another, whether that's through a coffee date, phone chat, or skype. I am intentional about creating a relationship with you because it is a privilege to capture your special day.
Below is a general overview of the services I offer. All of my clients receive an initial consultation (even if just over the phone) and beautifully retouched high-res images along with an online gallery to download photos and order prints for at least one year.
Albums, additional hours of coverage, and second shooters are not included in my base packages but available if desired. Travel fees may be added to a job depending on location (outside of the NYC area.) A booking retainer and signed contract is required for all clients.
Laura Diliberto is an inclusive photographer and supports love for all.
Local wedding packages begin at $3,300 for ceremonies/receptions (6 hours.) $225 for each additional hour. 9 hour cap.
Elopements + Intimate Weddings: I LOVE elopements and small ceremonies! A package like this would include a simple hourly rate ($400/hr - up to 5.5 hours.) 50-ish guests and under. No second shooter required.
♥ Portrait Sessions, Engagements, Family, and Maternity ♥
All portrait sessions correlate to my style of being intimate, relaxed, natural, and fun! Think of it as hanging out with your friend for a little while. Sessions include 1-1.5 hours of coverage and are priced at $500.
♥ Editorial + Fashion ♥
I love collaborating with other creatives for fashion and editorial work! I'm available for testing, TFP, and magazine submission projects on a select basis. Let me know if you're a vendor or have a creative project in mind!
♥ FAQ ♥
Where are you located? I live in Brooklyn and love shooting here, but I am not restricted to my city! I enjoy traveling and discovering new places.
Do you carry backup equipment? Yes, I carry backup at all times. Camera bodies, lenses, memory cards, and flashes. I'm a Canon shooter and use top of the line equipment.
What files do you provide? Can you give us the RAW images? All packages include high res digital files (JPG) only. A big part of what you're getting with your package is the intensive editing process, so no RAW images are provided.
What is your retouching style? I do about 90% color and 5-10% black & white (although if you want more B&W, let me know and I can be aware of that while retouching!) The toning that I use is inspired by the soft and romantic look of film, but I also like to keep photos looking natural and timeless so that in 50 years you'll still love them.
How long will it take to get my final images? Upwards of 8 weeks, less for elopement & engagement sessions (about 3-4.) I very carefully select and edit the images which is a huge process, so it's not something that should be rushed. I also like to give a few "sneak peak" photos within the first week after a wedding just so you have something to view while waiting!
Do you have General Liability Insurance? Absolutely! Please let me know if your venue will need this certificate before the big day.
What costs are associated with travel? Travel costs are really simple, just the basics are needed: round trip flight, a small per diem, and an Airbnb/hotel room. Stateside: 2 nights. International trips: 3 nights. *Please note that for any events outside of NYC, I may require a hotel stay even if it's just a few hours from home (depending on what time the event starts, ends, etc.)
Do you have a second shooter? Pricing starts for my services only, but second shooters are available at $65/hr. For weddings over 125 guests, I will require one. Over 90/100 guests, I may recommend it depending on your schedule for the day.
Can we see a full gallery? Yes, just let me know and I can send you over a link or two!
How can I pay you? I accept checks, Venmo, and credit cards. For all transactions you will receive an invoice/receipt for record keeping.
How many images are delivered in our gallery? What can we expect? This is a great question! I can typically ensure a minimum amount of images that will be delivered from a portrait session or wedding (approx. 55-65 per hour), but I don't provide an exact number because every client and event is different. This can entail if it's a smaller or larger event, if you hire a second shooter or not, etc. Regardless, my motto is "quality over quantity" and the images you receive are the best highlights of your individually unique selves.
