Do you travel for weddings?
YES! Travel arrangements are separate from my wedding pricing fee. Please inquire for more details.
How do I book you?
Let’s meet! Choosing your photographer is A BIG DEAL, so I love meeting with my clients so we can hangout and discuss what I have to offer and hear about your vision for your wedding day. If you do not live in the area, lets skype 🙂 If you choose to book me, 50% of the amount is due with a signed wedding contract. Portrait sessions are paid in full the day of the session by check.
Are all the images I receive edited?
Yes! All images given to clients are professionally edited. I do not give raw, unedited images for any reason.
When will our session take place?
All portrait/engagement sessions take place in the evening before sunset to avoid harsh midday light.
Where do you live?
I live in Wheaton, IL about 45 minutes from the city of Chicago.
How many weddings do you book a year?
I book anywhere from 15-25 weddings a year. I personally prefer to take on only one wedding a weekend to give my client my full attention and energy on their big day.
How do you pick the weddings you photograph?
I am a firm believer in having a connection with the people who want to hire me and building a friendship outside of the service I am providing. If you are wanting that kind of a relationship from your wedding vendor, I am a good fit for you!
How long before I receive my images?
Wedding turn around is 6-8 weeks
Portraits turn around is 2-3
How many photos do I get?
The amount of images you receive depends on how long your wedding day is. If I am with you on your wedding day for 12 hours, you would receive more images than if it was just an 8 hour day. It typically ranges from 600-900
Can I share my images on facebook?
Of course! I am always happy to see my clients share their wedding images with the ones they love. All I ask is that the images are no re-edited or sold. I retain rights to all the images but you do receive a reproduction release to print and share online.
How can I pay you?
All payments are accepted by checks only.
It rained on my wedding day. Do you provide after sessions for the bride and groom?
YES! YES! YES! This is neat chance for the couple to get back into their wedding attire and have a shoot with me if time and weather interfered on the big day. (contact for more details)
Nikon or Canon shooter?
Do you have backup equipment?
You bet! I always have a second camera body with me at all times.
Do you have liability insure?
I do! If you need proof of insurance, I would be happy to provide that.
