Thank you for taking the time to learn more! Below are some of the most often asked questions, along with a popular wedding package option to help get you started.

(If you haven’t already, please be sure to check out the My Style page, or maybe browse a few of the recent weddings on my Blog as well:)

Pricing / How much does it cost?

It depends upon what services you need; with this in mind I offer wedding packages which range from $2000 to $3950.  A popular option includes 10 hours of wedding photography by Michael Fisher, an online gallery for sharing, and your high resolution images on disc. Personal printing rights allowing you to print your wedding pictures as you wish included.    ( Package price- $2350 )

Need to know more?  Contact me with your wedding date and I’ll send additional wedding package possibilities your way.

How far will you travel to cover our wedding?
Local weddings for me are Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca and Watkins Glen (The Finger Lakes). Travel beyond my local area is available, but generally requires a travel and lodging fee.

How much experience do you have as a photographer?
I’m happy to say that photography is my full time profession. 13 years ago I documented my first wedding and I was hooked. In 2010 I opened Michael Fisher Photography, by the end of this year I will have professionally documented more than 100 weddings.

Do you have an option that includes 2 photographers?
Absolutely! I’ve assembled an elite group of professionals whose style blends well with mine.

What does the term “Photo-Journalism” really mean?
To most photographers, wedding photo-journalism means avoiding staged shots or re-enacted moments, photos are taken as events happen naturally. Working this way requires a lot of skill.  Catching a great moment in camera is one thing, but taking a beautiful image of a great moment takes more.

Why might I want a photographer who is also skilled at posed portraiture?
To me, it’s important that the wedding portraits have a natural look. That being said, it’s helpful when your photographer can start you off with a couple of relaxed posing suggestions to help you look your best.

How many images will I receive?
This number can vary a bit depending on your wedding day; with a 10 hours of photography I generally deliver somewhere between 600-800 images.

Did Han shoot first?
Yes, yes he did…

Do you offer anything special if our wedding is on an off-peak day or off season?
Yes, some dates of the year are more popular for weddings than others. Contact me if with your wedding date if you’d like more info.
What about photo-booth?
Yes, and wedding guests love it! $475 adds photo booth style coverage which includes full resolution digital copies for you and your guests to download and share. (The above pricing is available to couples who opt for 2 photographer coverage)

I have a question that's not on here..
