Welcome to my site, and rest assured, I am here to satisfy all your photographic needs!
My name is Dave Gasior, and as you can see here, I specialize in Wedding, Engagement, and Portrait Photography.
I especially enjoy photographing weddings because I have the opportunity to capture feelings in one day that will be stay with each couple for a lifetime. I’ve been told my fun easy-going style coupled with an ability to capture the moment under any circumstance is really what sets me apart from other photographers.
I currently reside in Newington, Connecticut, and my dream in life is to travel as much as possible and eventually settle down in Hawaii where I’d continue my photography business. Until then, I look forward to meeting new people and embarking on all the exciting adventures photography has to offer in the coming years.
Commonly Asked Questions
Q: Do you deliver every image you shoot?
A: No. We eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with strange expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that on our end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With our expertise of processing lots of images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.
Q: Does your studio provide videography services?
A: Yes, I partner with Nick Rezendes Photography. To see examples and to book videography services, click here. Currently, we do not offer both videography and photography packages for the same event.
Q: Are you insured?
A: Yes. If you or your venue require a proof of insurance for any reason please reach out to me prior to your event and i'll supply it free of charge.
Q: Which venues do you shoot at?
A: We have shot at a variety of venues throughout New England. If we have not shot at your venue previously, we will get to the venue early on the day of and be sure to perform a thorough walk-through to scout out the best photography locations. We also do extensive online research prior to your big day!
Q: Can we schedule our engagement session for the weekend?
A: Yes although keep in mind that most weekends in the summer months are booked early for weddings. If you can only do your engagement session on a weekend, we can tentatively schedule your engagement session on a weekend, however, if a wedding is scheduled for that weekend later on, we will have to reschedule your engagement session.
Q: Do you provide the RAW files from my engagement session and/or wedding day? A: Each of our packages comes with a full resolution image download. However, we typically do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from our shoots because we believe in delivering a finished product. In fact, we’re often shooting with the end (post-produced) product in mind.
Q: What rights do I have to the digital prints?
A: You have the right to reprint images whenever you want. However, you may not sell your images for profit or publish your images without the written consent of Dave Gasior Photography.
Q: How many images do you typically deliver from and engagement session? From a wedding?
A: We typically deliver anywhere from 50-150 images per 2-hour engagement shoot and for a wedding, we typically deliver 500-2000 images depending on the package booked and hours requested. Keep in mind these numbers may increase or decrease depending on the flow of the day and the number of events/activities needing to be captured.
Q: What happens if we go over the contracted amount of time?
A: We understand that not everything goes as planned during a wedding. We never pack up before the contracted time, and moreover we’re not leaving on the exact second when the contracted time is up. Instead, we will ask you at the end of your contracted time whether or not you would like to extend. If you would like us to stay, we will charge the rates specified in your contract rounded to the closest 30-minute increment.
Q: How do I reserve you for my date?
A: All dates are reserved once we receive your signed contract and deposit.
Q: Do you touch up all the images in our image download?
A: Yes. Every image we deliver is post produced with our unique signature style of post production and uploaded to a gallery. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. Many photographers will not post produce any images, or will only post produce “select” images from your wedding. This means that you may have pictures that are too dark, have strange skin tones or other common photography issues.
Q: Do you use flash?
A: Absolutely. We are equipped to handle any lighting situation. We have a variety of speedlights and off camera strobes along with the MagMod System for creative photographs. Our knowledge of lighting and ability to manipulate light sets us apart from our competitors. Having a "natural light" shooting style is great but at the same time we want to ensure our clients that every moment is captured regardless of the conditions.
Q: Do your wedding packages require a deposit?
A: Yes, a $400 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve any date. That deposit will be applied to your balance. Please see the contract for more details.
Q: How many weddings do you do per year?
A: We have been averaging around 20 weddings per year. We only shoot one wedding per day so our calendar books up very quickly.
