Before we get any further, let me answer your questions!!
I'm getting married outside Chicago, do you travel?
ABSOLUTELY!! I will happily hop in a car or on a plane to capture your love story! Contact me and let's chat all about your vision.
How many photos will I get?
I deliver about 100 images per hour, on average. This means weddings galleries will have a minimum of about 600 photos.
How long will it take to get my photos back?
For portrait sessions my turnaround time is 4 weeks, and for weddings it is 8 weeks. I always edit a few sneak peeks right after your wedding, because let's be honest, no one likes to wait!!
HELP!! We feel uncomfortable in front of the camera!
It’s not just you, everyone feels this way at first!!! My approach is to keep things light and fun. You don’t have to be a ‘model’ or practice poses ahead of time. I’ll guide you through the whole session, giving you silly prompts so the focus is on flirting with each other, not on the camera!!
Can I order prints or albums from you?
YES! I offer high-quality prints as well as clean, timeless albums that'll preserve your love story for years to come.Or if you're more of a DIY-er, that's cool too boo! Your images will be delivered via an online link where you can download and distribute as you please!
Should I book an engagement session?
I highly recommend engagement sessions to all my couples!! First off, you get some super cute and casual photos to capture your love. Second, it's a great opportunity for us to get to know each other before your wedding day! You'll get a taste of my posing style and we'll of course have tons of fun in the process!
Gimme the deets on second shooters!
Depending on the size of your wedding and what you're wanting captured, I may recommend you add a second shooter to your package. I'll choose a gal who I've worked with in the past who has a similar shooting style to mine, and you'll be left with some beautiful variety to your gallery!!
Can you recommend videographers / florists / makeup artists that you love?
DUH! When you hire me, I’m an open book! I’m happy to provide all the knowledge of my favorite vendors in the area. I know how hard it is to plan a wedding, so as a photographer I’m here to make your life easy!!!
HAVE YOU SHOT AT OUR VENUE BEFORE?
Perhaps! But if I haven’t, that’s super exciting!! I love photographing new places, it keeps me inspired! And don’t worry, I always spend plenty of time scouting out the location before your wedding!
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
I’m a Canon girl and shoot weddings with a 5D Mark III. I always bring backups and I definitely have liability insurance. I’m happy to provide a certificate to your venue upon request!
how far in advance should I book you??
The sooner, the better!! Most of my couples book 10-18 months in advance. If you’re planning your day during peak wedding season (summer or fall months in Chicago for example), I recommend reaching out as soon as you have a date and venue chosen!!
HOW DO I BOOK??
To make things official, I require a signed contract and $1000 deposit. Email me today or fill out the contact form via the link below!!
