Other Services

I do more than just photograph weddings.

Mitzvah Photography

A Mitzvah is one of the most important celebrations in your child's life, and it is important to capture these moments in quality photographs that you and your family will treasure for many years to come.  I have extensive experience with both Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and would be happy to photograph your family's extra special celebration.

My standard Mitzvah photography package is $2400 and includes:

  • Up to four hours reception event coverage with one photographer
  • Up to two hours ceremony (staged or real time if permitted) coverage.
  • An online viewing gallery of your images for sharing with family and friends
  • A $250 print credit to order print products through your online gallery
  • All of your images on USB flash drive presented in a beautifully printed custom case
  • Unlimited personal use (non-commercial) image reproduction/publication rights
  • Archival storage of your photographs up to five years
  • Applicable sales tax, plus transportation up to 150 miles round trip included

Hours can be added or subtracted at $180 per hour, per photographer.  A second photographer may be added, but is rarely needed for Mitzvahs.

Portraits

We are a "finished showcase print portrait" studio.  What does that mean?  It means we believe in providing heirloom-quality works of art for your home, office, or as gifts for your loved ones.  In this age of instant digital photographic gratification and social media sharing, the art of the printed product is more important than ever.  Digital media disappears as technology evolves.  The current generation is in a real danger of not having any permanent photographic record.  Our goal is to help you prevent that loss.

Why Choose Michael Chadwick Photography?

There are many photographers out there. There are even many photographers right here in Medford. We are not only a full time studio, but we have been photographing weddings, events, and portraits (among other things) for many years. Our benchmark for customer service is Disney, so you can be assured of a personalized, special experience every time. We partner with several professional printing labs so we can offer a wide variety of top-quality showcase print products.

The Process

We work with you to design the perfect in-studio or external shooting experience.

Step One: Schedule a free pre-session consultation in our studio and we'll determine the best environment in which to fulfill your wishes. We'll also get a sense of what types of photographic art you would like to have, so that we can shoot with the appropriate end results in mind.

Step Two: Schedule your session, and we will discuss with you what backgrounds, props, and other environmental items you wish to include in your session.

Step Three: Shoot your session and have an amazing time!

Step Four: We will contact you when your photographs have been processed and are ready for viewing. Schedule a free post-session consultation to view your images, and discuss what showcase Print Products you would like. We will then fine-tune retouch the selected photographs prior to printing.

Step Five: When your art is ready, we will contact you to arrange a pickup. You can also have home delivery, and even home installation!

What kinds of portrait photography do you offer?

Family Portraits

The term "Family Portraits" covers a wide variety of subjects including school and senior portraits, photos for holiday cards, family reunions, religious events, and other important family milestones. Capturing these important moments in the life of your family lets you treasure those memories forever. Depending on your family size and your needs, be sure to ask which session type is right for you. An outdoor session is very popular for family portrait shoots.

Maternity and Infant Portraits

We love capturing these important memories of your child's first year in the world, including the time they spend in Mommy's tummy. Maternity portraits let you remember those (quite literally) formative months before your baby enters the world, and newborn/infant portraits let you capture those precious first weeks. Given the sometimes difficult task of getting newborns and especially infants to cooperate, and the likelihood you're going to want more than one look, we recommend a one or two hour session.

Head Shots for Performers

As a former singer, stage director, and General Director of a small opera company, I have seen more than my share of performer head shots over the years. I know what directors are looking for, and how to get you to express the right "look" for the types of performing opportunities you seek. If you are a performing or visual artist, you need excellent photography to present yourself in the best possible way. If you're just getting started in the industry and need a basic head shot, a half to one hour session should get you what you need. For professional level artists, I recommend the one or even the two hour session, if you are planning on clothing changes and multiple backgrounds.
