How long have you been a photographer?

I started photographing families and weddings in 2009.  I became full time in 2012.

Do you only photograph weddings?

No.  While I do specialize in weddings, families and kids fill up a large part of my photography calendar every year.  In fact, most of the families that I have photographed have been past brides and grooms expanding their family.  It's such an honor to continually see the same faces each year as they change.

Do you offer packages for Micro-Weddings / Intimate Ceremonies?

YES! I offer an hourly rate that requires 2 hours minimum to book.

Do you travel for weddings?

YES!  I've traveled out of state so far for several weddings. Contact me for information regarding travel costs.  *Until further notice, all travel outside of IL is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Are you the main photographer?

Yes! I own and operate EGP and I'll always be the main photographer that you book for your big day.

Do we NEED to take engagement pictures?

Need to? No. But would it be beneficial and fun? You betcha!  Engagement sessions are my favorite.  It's the time I have with you two, just us, where we do not have a specific timeline and we can relax, and just have a blast.  It's a huge benefit to both of us because you as a couple get to 'practice' being in front of a camera so that on your BIG day, you know exactly what to expect.  And as for me, it's the same idea.  I get to know you both more individually and as a couple, how you interact, and what you might not like as far as portraits go.  Let's face it, the time you have as a 'fiance' is short.  Why not celebrate it with professional pictures (not on your phone) that you can look back on IN ADDITION to your wedding photos?

Do you offer 2nd Photographers?

Yes, when they are needed, I hire individuals from a group of highly skilled photography friends of mine.  They each own and operate their businesses as well so can be trusted completely to help on your day.

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely!  I realize that every couple has a different budget when it comes to photography, so because of that, I offer monthly payment plans that help to stretch out your package total.  In fact, that's how all clients pay : 25% to officially book, and the rest is split up into equal monthly payments to be paid in full no later than 30 days prior to the wedding date.  *You can pay via credit card, PayPal, bank transfer, or check.

Do you help organize the timeline for the day?

Absolutely! I actually have several online surveys that I send to you about a month before the wedding date.  They help list out every detail I need to know in order to plan out the best routes, locations, and photo musts for your day.  One in particular is the family formal portrait list. 

When can we see SNEAK PEEKS?

Sneak peeks of your day are posted all throughout the following week on both Facebook and Instagram. For weddings, a highlight reel will be shared within 1 week of the wedding date. 

When will our full gallery be delivered?

I always list within 3 months from your wedding date, however, I try my best to get them all to you as soon as possible.  You can always ask for an update. While you wait, I'll be posting sneak peeks on social media and sharing favorites on the blog for you to share with friends and family.
