1. THERE ARE SO MANY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS OUT THERE. HOW DO WE KNOW IF YOU'RE THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER FOR US?
Let's meet and chat! I find it important for my couples and I to meet and see how we click. On your wedding day you'll be spending a huge amount of time with your photographer and it's important that you have someone that you connect with and feel comfortable with. Another option is to schedule a FaceTime session if you're not local to the Rockford area. Be sure to check out my work on Instagram and Facebook and my Portfolios on this site. My style of work is a sweet combination of vibrant color with romantic softness and natural color tones.
2. DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes! We are fully insured with liability insurance which many venues require a photographer to have.
3. WHY SHOULD WE DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Engagement sessions are beneficial for several reasons. For you two, spending time in front of the camera helps to become more comfortable with working with me and us getting to know each other better. We have time to discuss your wedding style and getting familiar and comfortable with posing. Your engagement session is additional step to chronicling the story of your journey becoming Mr. and Mrs.
4. WE'RE HAVING A DESTINATION WEDDING! ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO TRAVEL?
Absolutely! Contact me to discuss your customized quote.
5. HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU DELIVER AND WHAT IS YOUR TURN AROUND TIME?
Wedding day flow can vary by event and the number of images captured per hour can vary with the number of activities needed to be captured. We typically deliver 50-70 hand edited images per hour. Engagement and Portrait sessions packages each offer a standard delivery of images. Check out the Pricing page for more details.
6. DO YOU OFFER PRINTS AND ALBUMS?
We offer a range of print sizes and specialty products for order directly through your private online gallery. Custom albums are available.
7. WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT? WHAT ARE YOUR DOWNPAYMENT REQUIREMENTS?
Confirming your wedding day on our calendar requires a signed contract and retainer payment of $500. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your event date.
Portrait sessions require a signed contract and $50 retainer to save the appointment date. Remaining balance is due the day prior to your scheduled session.
Making payment is easy and can be completed through your secure Client Portal through our site. Credit cards are accepted via online payment and Check payments are accepted in person or through mail.
8. WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
Camera bodies: Canon 1DX Mark II, Canon 5D Mark III, and Canon 7D. Lenses: Sigma 35/1.4 Art, Canon 70-200/2.8 IS II, Canon 24-70/2.8 II, and Canon 50/1.2
9. WHEN CAN WE EXPECT TO RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
It's my goal to get your images to you as quickly as possible! Post processing and hand editing of images does take some quality time. Typically you'll receive your session images within 2-4 weeks of your session date. Wedding images are typically delivered within 6-8 weeks from your event day.
Sneak peeks through social media are released shortly after your session/event for you to share with friends and family, unless requested otherwise.
