Engagement Photography

From start to finish Dream Anchor Photography went above and beyond to ensure that my surprise proposal to my fiance was a memorable experience. Their local expertise helped identify an incredible location that I had never heard of before. They were quick to respond and very professional, taking extra time to get to know me and my fiance to tailor the experience to us. They even crafted an after proposal photo session and picnic with locally made foods and a hard to find bottle of sparkling red wine that I had requested because of its importance in our relationship. The photos were also excellent. We immediately felt at ease with the photographers and the results really showed in our photos. We can't say thanks enough for helping us document these memories with incredible photos!

They were so great! We had a great time with them taking our photos, and they provided a ton of great ideas that really helped improve our family photos! I will recommend them over and over!

Out of several photographers I attempted to contact for my son's senior photos, Nathan and Hilary were 1 of only 2 that actually got back to me. I chose them because I liked their style of photos as well as the fact they were close by in Williamstown. Their prices were very reasonable as well. They offer amazing photos at an outstanding price you would not find closer to the city. This husband and wife team are super fun and friendly. They were excellent at communicating with us and ensuring we were 100% happy with our photos and experience. I would recommend Dream Anchor Photography to anyone! I hope to be able to work with them again in the future and may possibly be getting a few gift certificates for family / friends for holiday gifts this year!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Every project is different and we work with our customers. Our pricing is based on many variables and we strive to maintain equitable and fair pricing. Our flexibility in working with our customers helps us maintain a competitive edge while also producing superior photography services.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Establishing rapport, understanding needs, and setting expectations to ensure everyone is on the same page. On the day of a photo shoot we are efficient, practical, and accommodating. We enjoy creating a comfortable atmosphere for everyone to work in, and this helps us create superior products while also keeping sessions moving.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We are self-taught photographers who have done hundreds of hours of research and practice. We have learned effective lighting methods for a variety of effects, simple posing techniques that help our clients ease into natural and beautiful postures that lend themselves to photography. Our previous careers have also given us an appreciation for the customer experience and the tools for creating great experiences.
