Frequently Asked Questions

      Where are you located and do you travel? 

I reside in Woodstock, IL amidst all things Groundhogs Day and yes, I do some form of traveling for most of my clients. I do not add travel fee's unless there are the possibility of an overnight stay involved. 

      Do you build custom packages? 

No Two weddings are the same, I will absolutely build something that fits your day if the packages do not fit your needs. 

      Can we order prints with you? 

100% YES! In fact, we meet again after your wedding to present your images, build your album and talk about print options that fit your home. I use a specially chosen professional print lab that I love and trust to deliver the best quality to you. Each piece that I make for you turns a single moment in time into a priceless work of art. 

      How can we share our photos with family? 

After we meet and build your album, you will have access to your digital gallery. This is provided to you on a personalized web link. You can share this with your friends and family very easily. they can even order their own prints right there. It is super easy.  

      What happens if you are sick or something happens to you? 

Although I take care of myself extremely well, crap happens.  If this is something that we can see happening ahead of time, like an injury or long term illness, we will have in depth conversations about your options. If I become ill with little notice there is a list. This list is not very long, but contains the names of people that I trust will represent me the best in the event that I can not be me. They have a style similiar to mine, know how I work, and I TRUST THEM. They then pass those images back to me so I can edit them in the manner expected. YOU WILL NOT BE WITHOUT IMAGES!! 

      Where do we learn more about you? 

You can find me on Instagram, Facebook, See the About Me section, or Call Me - I love to set up in person meetings to hear your story.  

      How do we get in touch with you? 

You can chat with me via that little box below, Email Me, Call/Text Me, or fill out the Inquiry form.  

      I want to book you for my Wedding - What are the next steps? 

First and foremost, If you haven't done already, Fill out the Inquiry Form. Then, we set up a consultation to go over all the things, have some coffee together, and you tell me alllll about you, your love story, and where you are in planning. Lastly, we build your contract to reflect what your needs are. To be considered booked, I need the contract signed and a retainer paid. 

      What is your retainer? 

Your retainer fee is 50% of your package. The balance is due a few weeks before the wedding.   

      Will we hear from you before our wedding? 

OFFFFF COURSE! If you have an engagement session we need to plan that - shoot that - talk about that. Then I check in a few times to make sure things are on track. When I write blogs related to weddings, you will get those. We will also have a meeting, either on the phone or in person, a few weeks before your wedding to talk shot lists and timelines. If for some reason you need me or have questions in planning, you can reach out to me. I want to be a resource for you.
