I am hoping you're a couple that LOVES photography, wants to create a relationship with me (so you can be yourself in front of the camera!), appreciates technical aspects of photography, and values my experience and abilities. I always go above and beyond, and treat my clients with extra care.
I only accept a very small number of commissions a year, so please be sure to be timely when booking. Finally, full day and elopement packages may only be customized to include more services or products than listed.
Based on the cost of a typical wedding in Chicago, plan on reserving at least $4500-$9000 (about 10-20% of your total wedding day budget) or more for initial investment. . Be sure to plan for your wall art and gifts after the wedding, too!

How much coverage do I need?
What kind of gear do you use?
Will there be a second photographer?
How long does it take for you to process images from an entire wedding?
Do I get copyright permission with my digital images?
What happens if...
Do you reward referrals?
In my more than 15 years of experience photographing weddings, 8-9 hours of coverage is more than enough. If you decide you'd like more, you can always add additional coverage (additional fees apply).
I'd love to begin this by stating that I believe a camera is a tool, and that a brand does not make a photographer greater or less than. The way a photographer utilizes LIGHT is what sets them apart!
That being said, the gear that best suits my preferences is Nikon cameras, Nikkor and Sigma Art lenses, Godox/Flashpoint flashes, Magnet Mod modifiers, and a variety of modifiers from various different photographic brands, including Westcott.
With a full wedding day package, always. For elopements, courthouse weddings, and destination weddings, you can add on a second photographer for an additional charge.
I try to keep my turn around time to no more than 3 weeks for all of my clients.
YES! All of my clients have permission to make gift sized prints (up to 8x10 in size) for personal use and for gifting. To ensure the best quality and care is given, I do require that all larger sized prints, wall art, and books be made through my studio.
As a seasoned professional, rest assured that I have contingency plans in place for everything.
I do! For anyone who has worked with me at any stage of my career, I offer a $150 service credit OR a $50 visa gift card for each wedding referred my way.
