Nice To Know

Additional wedding day coverage can be purchased for $300 per hour. Your event must be within 40 miles of downtown Chicago and I must be available on your date. Additional spreads (two facing leaves in an album typically holding 1 to 4 photos) are available for $95 each. Larger album formats and parent copies are available. Prizes may not be redeemed for cash or transferred.

I will respond to the best entries personally and expect that you stay invested and responsive for the duration of the contest. If you ghost your entry will be removed. The winners will be selected on the basis of how sincere and genuine their story is and their willingness to connect.

I like to grab a dinner with my couples so we can get to know one another and discuss your big plans. I’m in Logan Square and know several comfortable and delicious restaurants here but I’m also happy to meet you at your favorite place.
