All of my wedding photography packages include delivery of high resolution professionally edited digital files in a flash drive. Other available options are wedding albums, custom graphic design, prints, thank you cards, acrylic and metal prints and more. Please feel free to ask for more details or I am happy to discuss any ideas that you might have.
Q. DO YOU DO PHOTO SHOOTS OUTSIDE OF CHICAGO?
Yes, I am flexible with sufficient planning time and I do love destination weddings! However, traveling fee does apply in this case, please do contact me directly for further discussion
Q. HOW SOON AFTER THE WEDDING WILL THE PHOTOS BE READY?
Highlights of the wedding output would take approximately a month. Actual hard copy (in flash drive) will take 8 to 10 weeks for all images.
Q: DO YOU DO BLACK AND WHITE?
Yes, I do shoot B&W photos. I will choose which ones are also good in B&W and give you both the color and B&W versions.
Q: CAN I HAVE OR SEE ALL OF THE UNEDITED PHOTOS YOU TOOK AT OUR WEDDING?
Nope. I do not release any unedited photos, EVER. Please do not worry. I will give you the best ones and trash all the half blinks, duplicate images, test shots, miss-focused shots, shots with bad expressions, and the double chin shots. You will receive the best ones.
Q: DO YOU RETOUCH ALL THE IMAGES IN THE FINAL PRODUCTION?
Yes I do. Every image delivered has been edited with my signature style. Typically, this would involve color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. What this means is that all the images that you receive would be beautiful!
Q: I DON’T SEE ANY FORMAL PHOTOS ON YOUR WEBSITE OR BLOG, DO YOU TAKE ANY FAMILY PICTURES AT THE WEDDING?
Yes, I take 10-15 minutes immediately following your ceremony for family formals. Those picture are not share in the gallery, but I am very happy to provide a preview if needed.
Q: HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS DO YOU WORK WITH?
A: Depending on the work required. Most of the projects that I’ve been engaged in there is no need for an assistant. However, if your wedding needs additional photographers (like if you have more than 200 guests and/or a really big wedding party), we can discuss further and work according.
Q: DO YOU PROVIDE PARTIAL DAY COVERAGE?
Typically, I do not provide partial day coverage on weekends. On weekends, I only accept clients that require at least 8 hours of coverage.
Q: HOW DO I PAY FOR YOUR SERVICE?
For weddings –a $500 deposit is required when you return a signed contract to secure my time on a particular date. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding day / the date the shooting takes place.
