BUT, there are plenty of wonderful wedding photographers in the area! I'd be happy to help guide you in the right direction.
What happens when I want to book a session?
You'll get my everlasting appreication! Then we get down to business.
We discuss what you're looking for, your ideas, and set a date. After that, I have a contract and guides for you to review so we can both be happy campers.
If you don't have a clue as to what you want to do, don't worry! From locations to outfit inspirations, or poses- I've got you covered.
How & when will I receive my photos?
My turn around time is an average of three weeks, but my workflow all depends on life itself (I'm only human). I know you're super excited to get them back though, so I do my best to give each photo the time it deserves.
Once the photos are done, I put together a stunning online gallery for you to view, share, and download from in high resolution. You also have the option to purchase print products directly through your gallery!
What the hell do I wear??
Easy. Clothes! Unless we're shooting boudoir, then you'll want to go the other route. Haha, all joking aside, I can help you with this too! I have a little guide put together that should point you in the right direction with curating a look.
Where are you located?
I'm based in Morrison, Illinois!
If you'd like me to travel to you or your desired location, I'm down for whatever! There is a travel fee outside of a 35-mile radius.
Currently, my schedule only allows me to shoot Sunday, Monday, and Tuesdays. Sunday evenings book up fast, so if you've got a certain date in mind, please let me know as soon as possible!
What days are you available?
Life happens. Weather happens. I get that. I'm constantly looking at the weather prior to our shoot, so if it comes down to not being able to go out, we will figure out a new plan.
What if we have to reschedule?
ALL HAIL GOLDEN HOUR. Woooof, that sunlight. That's when the magic happens. It's the hour before sunset and it hardly disappoints.
When booking, my priority is to schedule you during this hour, but if it's filled, don't fear! Other times of day are great too! We will make something work. Promise.
When is the best time to take photos?
Each session is different, but they all have a minimum. I hate to give a definitive number because I deliver everything I would personally love to receive. I pick the best photos and moments for you to keep. There's nothing in it for me if I hold back all those sweet shots. I pitch the photos that aren't up to par, like awkward faces or closed eyes.
How many images do I get?
Negative. Editing is part of my process and service to you. What I deliver is more than just a couple snaps straight from my camera. It's not magic, but it's pretty dang close.
Can I get the RAW unedited files?
No worries. I'll do my best to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
