Welcome to Adam Garelick Photography. I am a West Hartford-based wedding photographer available for weddings, engagements and elopements in Connecticut, the Northeast, and destinations all over. It is my passion to create authentic imagery where people and the moments they share remain the focus.
I first came to photography while living in New York City. I would walk the streets of Manhattan for hours, with a camera and some black and white film, and with no particular destination in mind. My goal was simple — to document the diversity, vibrance and randomness of life around me. My camera was a tool to explore my curiosity.
Today, I photograph weddings with that same curiosity and passion. I love meeting new couples, learning their story, and documenting their wedding day with sensitivity from behind the lens. I bring a friendly, relaxed attitude to my work and strive for images that are understated and unobtrusive. If you are interested in speaking further, it would be a pleasure.
What photography packages do you offer?
Weddings begin at $2,200. Engagement sessions, albums and post-wedding photoshoots are available as well. Please contact me for more details.
Why should we consider doing an engagement session?
Engagement sessions are a great opportunity for us to get acquainted before the wedding day in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. We can shoot at a beach, a park, a country house, the city, or anywhere that has special meaning to you. I love engagement shoots as a way to combine my artistry and your affection for one another without the time and location constraints of the wedding day.
Will you travel to photograph my wedding?
Yes! I am located in Connecticut but I photograph weddings throughout New England, New York and beyond. I am available for destination weddings and elopements as well so please inquire.
Do you edit the photos?
Yes. I edit every image that I send to you. Cameras today are excellent, but photos can often be made even better with adjustments that are individually tailored to each image.
How long after our wedding will we receive our photos?
I send a handful of images within a couple days of the wedding, and the remainder of the collection within four to six weeks. These are the photographs that I hope you, and perhaps your children or grandchildren, will cherish, so each photograph must be its best!
How would you describe your photography style?
A mix of documentary and photojournalistic. My wedding photography is very much inspired by the years I lived in New York, where I did a bunch of film-based street photography and street portraits. During that time, I captured the city and its people in candid, unscripted moments. I loved the honesty and authenticity of those images. Today, I bring that same documentary approach to my wedding photography. I capture your most special day with the observant, unobtrusive style that has always inspired my photography.
