What kind of equipment do you have?
I have an extensive list of the highest quality camera, lens, and lights available on the market. This ensures beautiful and the most professional photos. I also have backup equipment if anything went wrong. See the full list here.
Do you have insurance?
Yes I am fully insured.
What is your style?
I use a blend of photojournalism, modern, and classic. I love getting inspiration from bridal websites and editorial boards, and know the importance of classic family and bridal party photos. I have an extensive shot list memorized, so all you need to provide me with is family formal portraits.
How long have you been photographing weddings?
I began shooting weddings in 2009, where I worked for many of the large companies in the Chicagoland area. After I learned various techniques and styles I began my own company in 2011. I have photographed over 100 weddings!
Do you edit every photo or just a select few?
I edit every image from your wedding day! It important to me to provide you with the highest quality finished product, which includes fully edited images.
Do I need to provide you with a shot list?
I have a thorough shot list memorized that will include complete coverage of your day. If there are unique situations then I must have the list at least 2 weeks before the wedding. These should not be photos that I undoubtedly will capture! Please avoid things like “The First Kiss” or “Dress on Hanger”. Instead, you may use things like: “Napkins are made from mother’s old dress” or “Parents are divorced” . Just remember we capture on average 100 images per hour, so we capture everything and anything! Your wedding day will be uniquely yours, and I want other brides to use your images for inspiration :)
What do you need to reserve our date?
I require a contract and 25% down from the package you purchase.
When can we do an engagement session?
As soon as you book and we find a date! During high volume wedding season, it will most likely be a Sunday or weeknight. It’s never too early to book your engagement session, fall dates book fast.
Can you stay longer at the wedding?
Absolutely, you can add on additional hours if you choose for $250/hour, you can decide the night of the wedding if you’d like!
Can we print our photos?
Absolutely! You will receive all of your files on a USB drive with a print release allowing you the freedom to print wherever you choose.
How long will it take for my photos to be done?
Since we are a boutique company, your photos will be available 3-4 weeks after the wedding on our online gallery. You will get exclusive access to view the photos before your guests can. I always post sneak peeks on facebook a few days after the wedding, and a blog post usually 1-2 weeks after the wedding with images that tell the story of your day.
When do I get my USB drive?
I order custom packaging for each wedding to leave you with a final product. I place the order online after the wedding, and it usually arrives 6-8 weeks after the order is placed. If you need a photo for thank-you cards quicker I can email or dropbox them to you.
Do you do boudoir photos?
