I treat each wedding with as much care as if it were my own, and shoot each one as a unique work of art, capturing the mood, moment and memories to last a lifetime. I treat each client as if they are one of my own friends or family, getting to know them to ensure their comfort with me and in front of the camera to capture their true selves. For me it’s just as much about the experience as it is about the photos and I aim to offer an experience I would have been thrilled to have for my own wedding.

All of my packages include a customized wedding timeline, engagement shoot, a wedding day assistant, and an online gallery of high-res edited images and print credit and or album options so you walk away with a tangible item to have in you home and not just behind a screen. Wedding packages start at $4500.

Options are available for destination weddings, elopements and smaller, intimate weddings. Contact me for a quote.

Booking & Planning

Step 1

Like what you’ve seen so far? Reach out and we can chat via email, phone or FaceTime! I’m happy to answer any questions you have! Should you decide to book with me, I require a signed contract and a 50% deposit to reserve dates.  The try to make booking as easy as possible, so the contract can be signed virtually to make things easy and save on trees, and the  payment can be provided via Venmo.  

I’m a total planner type- an added bonus of working with me.  I am always happy to offer vendor recommendations, as well as other tips to help guide you through the planning process and get you the best photos possible- minus the stress!

A few months prior to the wedding date, I provide you with a detailed questionnaire to gather all the important pieces of the day so that nothing is missed.   From this I’m able to craft a timeline for you so that you know what will happen when, where, where to be, who should be there, etc. This helps to make sure I cover everything, and we stay organized and on track, and stress free.  I’ve found that after all the planning, one thing that brides worry about is- how is all this actually going to happen on the big day.  You can leave that to me and my team!

The engagement session

step 2

Once you’re booked, we schedule your engagement session. These can be done wherever you like, or I can offer suggestions, as well as help with wardrobe. I offer engagement sessions complimentary in all of my packages. As part of my process and experience, I use them as an opportunity to break the ice and get to know each other.  

We’ll meet up and hang out, grab an adult beverage of your choice to break the ice, and chat for a bit before we jump into shooting.  I take an adventurous approach to these session, so be prepared to laugh your ass off and get a little wild. This helps to eliminate any nerves you have about the engagement shoot and get you used to how I approach shooting my couples. It also really helps facilitate a relationship between us, so come wedding day my clients are totally comfortable with me, and it’s like an old friend coming in to take photos rather than a stranger from the internet.

WEDDING &
Happily Ever After

step 3 

On the wedding day, I’ll arrive early to find the best locations for photos. Throughout the day, I’m kind of like a spirit guide, gently guiding you from getting ready, to first looks, to ceremony, etc.  I’m a little more hands on early in the day, and then I’ll be there to capture the candid moments, and check in occasionally with you to make sure we are getting all of the photos you’ve been dreaming of.

I work with a bridal assistant on the wedding day, who’s sole role is to make sure your day and our timeline goes as smoothly as possible- thinking wrangling family members for photos, fixing your dress, reminding you to drink water.  I’ve found this team works to provide the best experience possible so all you have to worry about is having a good time!

Once the wedding is complete, I’ll send about a dozen sneak peek photos within a week. Your final gallery is delivered, typically in 4-6 weeks, via an online gallery.  You have printing rights, and all of my packages include prints and/or an album(s). I want my couples to have something tangible at the end of this process, and not just images that are stored behind screens. If the package you choose includes an album, I’ll work with you to create a custom fine art album, with options such as linen, leather and my personal favorite, velvet album options.

Experience—

"Working with Cassie was one of the best parts of our wedding. Like most couples, we weren't used to being photographed and Cassie put us completely at ease from the engagement shoot (definitely do one even if you don't think you need the photos!) to pre-ceremony photos through the end of the night. It ended up pouring on our wedding day which could have been a disaster but Cassie's incredibly calm demeanor made us forget it was even cloudy out - and we got some incredible shots. Her ability to think on her feet, anticipate great shots, and work with your ideas is unparalleled. It really felt like hanging out with a friend rather than having a hired photographer around. Plus the final product is beyond - I literally gasped aloud when I saw the first shots from our day. If you want gorgeous and unique photos to remember your wedding day by you need to book Cassandra Daye Photography."

"Cassie is a true artist. She is a complete dream of a photographer, her passion and love for her art is incredible! She is patient and takes the time to make sure every shot counts. She directs with so much ease and meaning. We loved her personality and work so much we actually changed our wedding date to make sure we could book her! She loves what she does and makes you feel extremely comfortable and confident in front of the camera. She always has wonderful suggestions, please take her advice! She is a calm presence when needed most and always encouraged us to just “go for it”. Cassie shot my boudoir session, our engagement session and our wedding day. We feel eternally blessed to have had Cassie capture some of the most special moments in our lives! Photography is forever.. make sure you go with someone who is a romantic at heart, someone like Cassie!"

"Cassandra and her team were simply amazing. I cannot get over how kind, professional, talented, and most of all HELPFUL Cassandra was for our wedding. My husband & I live about 2 thousand miles away from were we got married, and Cassandra not only gave her best recommendations for vendors, but she showed us around a couple days before our wedding when we arrived, and she was our wedding coordinator for the day. She was on time for every single step, kept us on track, and provided the absolute most gorgeous photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. She is truly committed to making your day as special and memorable as possible. I cannot say enough great things about what she does for couples."

FAQs—

are we a good fit?

Look, I'm going to be honest, if you're looking for a dime a dozen photographer or cookie cutter wedding photo factory,....I'm probably not the photographer for you. And that’s okay! You want a photographer, that just like your partner, is your (photography) soulmate!

BUT if you’re searching for a photographer who understands not just the value of the bomb ass photos and candid moments that stop you in your tracks and take your breath away, really gives a shit and is excited about you as a person, a couple, your nuances, your love story, your family, your WEDDING (woo!), will help you with planning, even so much as go dress shopping with you (yes, I’ve actually done that), who will tell you you have lipstick on your teeth before you walk down the aisle and cry while you say your vows, will likely ask you two to make out a few hundred times (but it’s all good, because y’all can’t keep your hands off each other anyway- insert fire emoji!) AND will deliver unique images that will make you cry the good kind of tears!?

Well then, I’m your girl!

FAQs—

How would you describe your style?

I consider my style to be “high contrast” and bold, romantic yet fun, with just right amount of mood and Vogue. People often describe my images as intimate and filled with emotion, and that’s not by mistake.

I provide directions rather than poses to create candid moments, like directing a movie, but I’m also careful to document real moments as they happen. You’ll never have to worry about what to do with your hands - I do my best to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible so you can just focus on each other, have fun and enjoy the process!

FAQs—

Do you travel?

I’m based out of New York and Florida, but in the past year or so, I’ve travelled to Ireland, Mexico, Canada, Palm Springs & Joshua Tree California, New Orleans, Jamaica, Nashville, Bermuda, Colorado, (wow, that’s a lot of sky miles!) and all over the Northeast. I’m looking forward to visiting Morrocco and heading back to Europe in the late spring of 2020, and to an Alaskan Elopement booked for 2021. 

That being said, I’m always down to travel for weddings, elopements, and engagement/couples sessions (fees may apply) so reach out and let’s chat!

I also am offering discounts on any weddings/elopements in any of my bucket list locations- Morrocco, France, UK, Greece, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Bali, Tulum, Cabo, California, Oregon, Acadia, Switzerland, Alberta Canada, Colorado, Savannah, Charleston, The Hampsons, Arizona, Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon, Utah, The Azores, Iceland, Hawaii, Austin, Costa Rica, South Africa....

hell yeah!

FAQs—

Can you tell me more
about engagement sessions?

I SURE CAN! 

I LOVE engagement session, so I include them complimentary in all of my packages. As part of my process and experience, I use them as an opportunity to break the ice and get to know each other. Consider it a practice run for the wedding.

We’ll meet up and hang out, grab an adult beverage of your choice to ease any nerves before we even start shooting. It really helps facilitate a relationship between us, so come wedding day you two are totally comfortable with me, and it’s like an old friend coming in to take photos rather than a stranger from the internet.  

I take an adventurous approach to these sessions, and take advantage of less formal attire to really get you guys moving and create those candid moments. I guarantee you’ll have a blast and feel confident afterwards. I won’t force you to do them, but 9/10 I get a “That was so fun! I’m so glad we did this! I’m so excited for the wedding photos!”

Beyond the experience, engagement photos are also an opportunity for professional photos of the two of you at a really wonderful time in your life. Most of my clients have never had professional photos taken as a couple, and I love being able to document their every day lives. Let’s go hiking, or out on the lake or to a brewery, or even get cozy at home and capture something you guys love to do together on a typical day. In 20 years it will be nice to have some photos together other than selfies on Facebook, so consider it a little gift from me to you.  

I’m always happy to travel for these, and I can offer location suggestions and wardrobe tips to get you photos you’ll love! 

And YES! You can and SHOULD bring your dog!

FAQs—

Do you Offer Prints, Albums & USB's?

Yup! All of my packages now include a USB and print credits and/or album(s). I think that the photos we take should be seen and displayed in your home, and not just locked behind screens. Once you receive your gallery you can also order prints, albums or other products, in addition to downloading them. 

I work with you to custom design albums to tell your story, based on your photo selections, with linen, leather, and velvet options available. 

I use a lab and guarantee the quality of the products available in my shop, but you can print them wherever you wish. 

How many photos will I recieve? 

I typically deliver 50-100 edited high resolution images per hour of shooting, via an online gallery which allows you to download and/or order prints and other products. 

No, I do not provide raw unedited files to clients.  I go through all of the images I shoot to weed out any blinks, awkward faces, or blurry photos. I then edit the images so you receive the best looking photos possible. I know many of my clients comment on how they love my editing, so it’s an important piece of the artistry of my work.  


can i have the raw files?

FAQs—

Have you shot at our venue? 
 Do you do walk-throughs?

I shoot weddings throughout the US and destination, so it may be likely I have not shot at your venue, but the way I see it, is that may be better than someone who has shot there a thousand times and is going to reproduce the same photos for every couple.  I would rather bring a fresh perspective, but I do always plan to arrive early to scout the venue for photo locations and the best light, so by the time I see you on your wedding day, I already have a plan in mind, unique and custom to you.

FAQs—

what if you get sick?

Unless I'm on my deathbed, I will do everything I can to be at your wedding, however, in the very slim chance that I cannot be at your wedding, I have a network of wedding photographers and will find a replacement photographer, with similar style and personality to me to stand in for me that day. I will edit the final photos, so your images will be seamless.  However, to date, I have never missed a wedding. 

 I do carry both liability insurance and workers comp insurance, so if you need a certificate for your venue, just let me know. Additionally, I have a system of backups to ensure that your photos will be as safe as possible. I use cameras that have multiple data cards, I carry backup camera gear, and I backup your files to multiple places as soon as I arrive home.  I don't delete any files until your final edited gallery is delivered.

do you carry insurance? backup gear?
