I have always loved playing with a camera since I was a kid! I earned a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in photography from Millersville University.
Although many people think I am located in Brielle, NJ I am actually based out of Montville New Jersey. I live and photograph primarily in Northern New Jersey, but I am happy to travel anywhere your session takes me!
I photograph families on location at parks, gardens, and beaches outdoors in natural light across New Jersey. I have great locations in mind if you do not have some place special to your family. Outdoors allows children the room to move and is best for relaxed interaction. For newborns I photograph on location in your home!
Yes, travel fees apply outside of 20 miles from Montville, New Jersey. They are determined on a session by session basis with factors being travel time, distance, and tolls.
YES! I want you to print your photographs over and over as many times as you wish for years to come!
A final selection of images are carefully chosen, edited in my signature style ( bright with true to life colors) and delivered in your online gallery in a high resolution JPG file with a personal print release. The original unedited RAW files are not available for purchase. Some portrait packages, and all weddings include a USB drive with final delivery.
A personal print release is uploaded with your secure online gallery and available as a download to keep with your images. It states that you may reproduce your images through print or albums for personal use only, and restricts you from the resale, commercial use, or contest entry of the images.
Approximately 4 weeks after a newborn or portrait session you will receive an email containing your final selection of photographs. Directions will be included how to view, save, and print! Wedding Couples can expect their images in their gallery approximately 12 weeks after their event.
My best advice is to coordinate outfits, but not match exactly. If everyone is in a very large flashy patterned outfit your faces will get lost in the sea of pattern. A mix of patterned and solid colored clothing in the same family of colors or neutrals is always a great go-to!
Pinterest is an amazing platform to draw inspiration from and I love to use it for ideas too! Pinterest can be like a haircut, it looks great on someone else but might not be right for you personally. I strive to customize each session and wedding capturing genuine interaction and connections. Spending time recreating another person's photo won't make you happy if it doesn't look natural, match the same light, and editing style. I would love to incorporate ideas you have about your session, and talk about your vision for your final gallery of photographs, but I encourage you to fall in love with your photographer's work to see if you are the right fit!
Since most sessions are outdoors, and New Jersey weather can be a little unpredictable, we keep in touch and make the final call 24 hours before our session. If the chance of rain is 50% or greater we reschedule for another day that works for both of us!
I have a setup with large beanbag and wraps that I travel to your house with at the time of the shoot. After a consult over the phone or by email, I have a selection of backdrops and props I bring to meet your preference. If there is a family heirloom or special outfit you would like to include it is up to your discretion to provide, all ideas are welcome!
The best timing to have an in home newborn session is within the first few weeks the baby is home. After the first 4 weeks or so the baby does not curl up and sleep as well, and can be more sensitive to trying to be posed. We encourage a warm room, and mom or dad to be nearby to feed or soothe with a pacifier if they use one!
Yes, they can be added onto any package! Once your wedding is over I choose the best pictures to highlight your day to create a beautiful album that can be customized and duplicated into parent albums or even pocket sized!
No, it is completely up to the couple. While there are great benefits of doing so, it is up to the couple to choose if it is right for them. Brielle Kaschak Photography works with you to plan a timeline of your day to ensure we get all the photographs you want, while keeping in mind the time of year, and lighting available to capture great portraits for your special day!
