Upgrades and add-ons include flush-mount wedding albums, engagement sessions, parent books, and more. For details and to check availability for your wedding date, contact me.
Please note that I book dates on a first-come-first-serve basis. I can only hold dates with a signed contract & retainer.
What is your experience with photographing weddings?
As a full-time wedding photographer, I’ve documented over 150 weddings around New England and beyond. The weddings I photograph are diverse – from City Hall weddings where I’ve been the only witness, to 300+ person affairs. I’ve documented Catholic, Jewish, Episcopalian, Egyptian Coptic, non-denominational Christian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Muslim, same-sex, and non-religious ceremonies. I would love to learn all about the customs and events at your wedding.
As a word-of-mouth business, I have no paid advertising or paid listings with venues. It’s very important that I have trusting relationships and happy clients who will recommend me to their friends and family. If you’re interested in what past wedding couples are saying, you can read some reviews here.
How far in advance should I book you?
Most couples book me about 6-12 months before their wedding. I book some weddings as far as 18 months in advance, and occasionally as little as 2 or 3 months ahead. If I’m already booked for your wedding date then I’m happy to recommend another photographer.
How much will it cost to hire you?
I offer packages and can also customize services to your wedding. Contact me for details on packages and a full menu of my wedding photography services.
How can I book you for our wedding?
Please use the “Contact” link in the menu at the top of this website. I can then tell you if I’m available for your wedding date and send you additional information on packages and pricing. A $1,000 retainer and signed contract reserves your wedding date.
I also keep regular office hours to meet with clients and am available to speak over the phone just about any weekday. While most of my clients are in New England, I frequently work with couples who are planning their weddings remotely.
Where are you located?
I am based in Boston, but photograph weddings all over New England and beyond.
We like your photography style but would like to have traditional portraits as well. Is this something you do?
Yes, I take traditional family portraits at nearly every wedding I photograph. Traditional family portraits are an important part of your wedding record.
When will our photos be ready?
Your digital proofs will be ready in an online gallery within 4-6 weeks of your wedding.
Do you offer a second photographer?
About 90 percent of the weddings featured on this website were photographed by me working alone. So that I can capture authentic and candid images like the ones you’ve seen in my portfolio, it’s important that I have a minimal photographer/outsider at presence at your wedding. However, I do offer second photographers for weddings that require one. Once I understand your wedding and photography requirements, I can recommend whether a second photographer would be beneficial or necessary for your wedding.
What kind of cameras do you use?
I use professional-level Canon digital cameras and lenses with backups. I also use medium format Contax, Hasselblad, and Mamiya film cameras.
Do you have business insurance?
Lisa Rigby Photography is fully insured through Travelers. Having business insurance is required for a photographer to work at many wedding venues and reception sites.
Do you have another job?
Nope. I’m a full-time wedding photographer.
