FREQUENTLY ASKED WEDDING RELATED QUESTIONS
PRICE VS QUALITY
It is important to know that no two photographers will ever give you the same results. Photography is incredibly unique. According to Wedding Wire, the average cost of a Wedding Photographer is $2100 in the Chicagoland area. Photography is a luxury and I believe in making it affordable. Consider the longevity of this investment that will last you a lifetime.
AM I REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ANY PHOTOS?
I am happy to say NO. All of the digital photos that are turned over to you are for your personal enjoyment. I would be more than happy to recommend PROCAM PRINTING AND IMAGING if you wish to have an album made or any of the photos professionally printed.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT ON OUR WEDDING DAY? (Based on 5 hours of coverage)
I will capture those little moments of you both getting ready.
The first look
Exchanging of gifts
Beautiful moments during the ceremony
Fun moments with the bridal party
The cocktail hour
Bridal party introductions
Speeches and toasts
The cake cutting
The first and formal dances
Fun moments with friends and family throughout the day.
WHAT FORM OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Cash, Credit Cards or Certified Checks.
WHAT TYPE OF GEAR DO YOU USE?
I shoot with a Fujifilm Professional X series camera and Fujinon professional lenses.
NOT SURE IF WE NEED A PHOTO PERMIT FOR THE LOCATION?
There are so many great locations throughout the Chicagoland area. The permit is the responsibility of the couple to obtain one. I would be more than willing to assist any way I can.
HOW SOON WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS?
Wedding photos will be processed and delivered via an online gallery within 30 - 45 days. Engagement, Family and LifeStyle photos will be processed and delivered via an online gallery within 2 weeks.
HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE ARE WE GOING TO NEED?
I would be more than happy to discuss that with you in person during our initial consultation. In order to make my wedding packages affordable, I offer a 3 hour and a 5-hour package wedding package.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, I am a proud member of the Professional Photographers Association of America.
