book me!

Yep, I bring a crazy amount of overexcited energy (sorry) to your wedding but I can’t help it!!! I freaking love what I do and the people I get to serve!!! Speaking of people, my clients (aka my friends) are truly the BEST humans on this earth. They are adventurous, well-styled, and they love hard. They don’t mind a lil wind in their hair or dirt on their train, because they live in the moment and they value what’s important - marrying their best friend!!! My brides and grooms always remain friends long beyond a wedding day, and I wouldn't have it any other way!! 

Sure, I'm a wedding photographer, but I believe this job is so much more than that. I've been known to pin curls, pop champagne, piggyback my brides through mud, and get down with grandmas on the dance floor. My job is to document each moment, but also make sure your big day runs without a hitch!!! It's a privilege I don't take lightly, and I'm SO pumped that you are considering me for your best-day-ever!

All wedding days are beautiful, from dreamy veils to swoon-worthy bouquets to sparkly diamond rings. But in reality, weddings are so much more than the details!!! Weddings are the one day in your life that you're surrounded by all the people you love most, and you deserve a photographer who's just as stoked as you are to be a part of that day!!! 

My clients (aka my friends) are truly the BEST humans on this earth!

My brides + grooms always remain friends long beyond a wedding day, and I wouldn't have it any other way!!

my approach

01.

i'm getting married outside of chicago, do you travel?

ABSOLUTELY!! I will happily hop in a car or on a plane to capture your love story! Recently I’ve been to Paris, NYC, Las Vegas and Florida, and in 2020 I’m jet-setting to California and Hawaii for weddings!! Contact me and let's chat all about your vision!

02.

how many photos will I get?

Every wedding is different, but I typically deliver 800+ images from each beautiful wedding!!

03.

how long will it take to get our photos back?

For portrait sessions my turnaround time is 4 weeks, and for weddings it is 8 weeks. I always edit a few sneak peeks right after your wedding, because let's be honest, no one likes to wait!! 

04.

help!! we feel awkward in front of the camera!

It’s not just you, everyone feels this way at first!!! My approach is to keep things light and fun. You don’t have to be a ‘model’ or practice poses ahead of time. I’ll guide you through the whole session, giving you silly prompts so the focus is on flirting with each other, not on the camera!! 

05.

is 8 hours enough time?

8 hour wedding days are my most popular package. This typically covers getting ready through the epic dance party at your reception! We’ll chat timeline details, and I may suggest you add on more hours if needed.

06.

do you have references?

Of course!!! I have plenty of reviews from happy clients. Check out some of my favs here, or visit my Facebook or Google Business page!! 

07.

can I order prints or albums through you?

YES! I offer high-quality prints as well as clean, timeless albums that'll preserve your love story for years to come. Or if you're more of the DIY type, that's cool too boo! Your images will be delivered via an online link where you can download and distribute as you please!

08.

should I book an engagement session?

I highly recommend engagement sessions to all my couples!! First off, you get some super cute and casual photos to capture your love. Second, it's a great opportunity for us to get to know each other before your wedding day! You'll get a taste of my posing style and we'll of course have tons of fun in the process… talk about a win-win!!! 

09.

can you recommend other vendors that you love?

DUH! When you hire me, I’m an open book! I’m happy to provide all the knowledge of my favorite vendors in the area. I know how hard it is to plan a wedding, so as a photographer I’m here to make your life easy!!!

10.

have you shot at our venue before?

Perhaps! But if I haven’t, that’s super exciting!! I love photographing new places, it keeps me inspired! And don’t worry, I always spend plenty of time scouting out the location before your wedding!

11.

what kind of equipment do you use? Do you have insurance?

I’m a Canon girl and shoot weddings with a 5D Mark IV. I always bring backups and have liability insurance. I’m happy to provide a certificate to your venue upon request!

12.

how far in advance should we book you?

The sooner, the better!! Most of my couples book 10-18 months in advance. If you’re planning your day during peak wedding season (summer or fall months in Chicago for example), I recommend reaching out as soon as you have a date and venue chosen!!

13.

how do I book?

To make things official, I require a signed contract and 50% retainer payment. Email me today or fill out my contact form and let's do this!!
