How do we book you?
A contract plus a 50% retainer will reserve your wedding date with the remaining balance due 30 days before your wedding.
How long does it take to receive the photos?
You will receive a gallery of a few standout photos from your day within one week of the wedding. Final delivery of all high-resolution edited photos is 6 weeks after your wedding.
Do you take formal/family photos?
As much as I love the documentary/journalistic style, I understand the importance of family portraits. We will work together to create list of portraits you would like to make the process as simple as possible! Typically I recommend 30 minutes for immediate family portraits.
Do you have public liability insurance?
Yes! If your venue requests a certificate, please let me know so I can arrange it.
Can you help us with our timeline?
Absolutely! I'm very detail-oriented and assist with the timelines for almost every wedding I photograph. I understand that most of you haven't done this before, so I am here to help to make sure we create a timeline that allows for the best photographic experience possible.
Do you travel for weddings?
I am based out of Chicago, but frequently travel all over the midwest for weddings. My heart is happy when I travel abroad so please don't hesitate to reach out for destination weddings and elopements! :)
Can we order prints through you?
Yes, I have a client proofing website where you or your family and friends can order prints from. You can also take care of your own printing if you wish!
Do you charge a travel fee to get to my wedding if the wedding is outside of Chicago?
For weddings that are interstate, overseas or more than 1.5 hours drive from Chicago please additionally also consider the cost of getting me to you. Once I have your wedding details I will provide you with a travel quote so you know exactly what the cost of getting me to you will be. For weddings out of town I do request that 2 nights accommodation are booked and the cost of my flights and car hire (If interstate or overseas) are covered. I am always happy to chat about the travel side of things though and am very flexible. If you are planning your wedding in a special or tricky to get to location, all the better, let's chat.
Do you work with second shooters / assistants?
I work on my own and with second photographers depending on the details and size of the wedding. Generally as a rule, weddings with a guest count over 150 guests I would recommend a second photographer, for less than, I feel confident photographing on my own. But I will be able to give you my recommendation given your exact plans for your wedding. For elopements & small weddings in Chicago, I work on my own.
