FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS BY CLIENTS
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 $2000 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.
ARE YOU AVAILABLE ALL YEAR AROUND?
The wedding season is considered from May to October. I am available all year round for all types of photo sessions provided I have those specific dates available.
HOW ARE YOU TAKING PRECAUTIONS WITH THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC?
Fortunately, I have received the first dosage of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and I
am scheduled to receive my second before the end of January 2021. I also wear a mask when I am in direct contact with my clients.
HOW ARE YOU MEETING CLIENTS WITH THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC?
I love meeting with all of my clients in person, but I am more than happy to meet
