frequently asked questions

How does pricing work? do you have packages?

+

What happens after we book you?

+

With my couples there’s no “Great, you’re booked! I’ll see you at your wedding day...” I want to help with everything, from timeline advice to outfit suggestions. We’ll be in contact regularly in the months leading up to your day. Before the wedding, we’ll go over your entire day and the memories that are most important to you. If you do an engagement session we will schedule that right after you book!

WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF? DO YOU DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS?

+

I currently live in Houston, TX. But I'm from Illinois and we are actually moving back to the Chicago suburbs early 2020! & HECK YES I shoot destination weddings. I love to travel!

How many images do you deliver?  

+

For weddings, I deliver a minimum of 400. For sessions, I deliver a minimum of 50. I don’t put a limit on how many images you will receive! I also don’t withhold any images and charge extra for them like some photographers do. Every wedding is different and varies from the last and numbers are always changing. If you’d like to see some full wedding galleries, please feel free to ask! I’m happy to send over a few so you can get an idea of what I deliver.

What is your turnaround time?

+

After your wedding, you’ll want to see those pictures ASAP! Typically, I’ll have your final online gallery ready 4-6 weeks after your wedding. And I will always deliver a sneak peek of 10-20 images the day after to give you a lil something while you wait! For sessions, your final gallery will be delivered within 3 weeks.

Does every package come with a second photographer?

+

A second photographer can be added on for $45/hr to any package. I shoot 90% of my weddings solo and I am super confident in doing so! But I have no problem adding a second shooter on if you'd like. You can even pick the amount of hours you have one for. I would suggest having one if you have 250+ guests! It's all up to you in the end though.

How do payment schedules work?

+

To secure your date with me, I require a signed contract along with a 30% non-refundable retainer. The remaining 70% is due 30 days before the wedding. For a session, the day of. If you’d like to split up the payments to help make it more affordable, let me know! I’m happy to work with you to make it easier.

What happens if we need to cancel or reschedule?

+

If you’ve paid the retainer for your wedding date and have to reschedule it, it must be rescheduled within 6 months from original date for it to be applied. If the new date takes places after 6 months from original date, a new retainer will have to be paid in order to hold your new date. If you’ve put down the retainer for a session and have to reschedule it, it must be rescheduled within 60 days for it to be applied. If the new date takes places after 60 from original date, a new retainer will have to be paid in order to hold your new date. I don’t do this because I’m trying to take money from you, but because I’m counting on that money during that time to pay bills and I only take on limited amounts of jobs per month.

what happens if there is bad weather?

+

We can reschedule if the weather is really awful or if my camera will get ruined by it. But some of my favorite sessions have been in the rain/snow! And wind? Pshh.. wind is what I pray we get before every shoot! Embracing the weather makes for incredible photos. We can make the decision together whether we need to reschedule or not.
