Q. What is your photographic style?
A. My style is casual, leaning towards photojournalistic. During the ceremony and reception, you can relax and be yourselves and know that I will be there to capture all your special moments as they happen. I’ll step in to direct formal pictures because let’s face it, all those amazing “candid” pictures you see in magazines or on Style Me Pretty are usually intentional – just like your favorite reality TV show is probably scripted. I’ll seek out the best locations, lighting and poses to enrich the emotions that show up in your pictures. I also have a slight obsession for wedding details, so you can count on having loads of pictures of all the pretty little things that make your wedding unique.
Q. Can you create a custom photography package for me?
A. Without a doubt. I tend to suggest 3 packages because these are the most popular items I see brides requesting. These are only intended to give you a starting point to help you decide if I may be within your budget. I’m more than happy to create a custom package based on your specific needs. Also keep in mind, that I a offer a full catalog of products to show off your pictures – from duplicate DVDs for friends and family to canvas prints and custom designed albums.
Q. What forms of payment do you accept?
A. You’re welcome to pay for your event using cash or check. I can also accept payment in any form via PayPal.
Q. Do you shoot in color or black & white?
A. Thanks to digital photography, this question’s becoming somewhat irrelevant. I ALWAYS shoot in color because it allows me the greatest flexibility for editing your photos after the event. Your wedding images will be presented to you in BOTH color and black & white versions.
Q. How long after the event will my photos be ready?
A. Generally, I’ll post a preview of 10-20 fully edited images within 1 week of your event. The complete online gallery and high-resolution images will be delivered within approximately 4 weeks.
Q. Are you available for travel?
A. ABSOLUTELY! I generally service the areas around Chicagoland including IN and WI but I love to travel and will happily put together a custom quote for your location. For a limited time, I’m offering NO TRAVEL FEES for weddings taking place in my hometown area of central Florida.
Q. Are you available for same-sex unions?
A. Definitely. I am a firm supporter of marriage equality and will happily capture the love of any couple whether it be during a wedding, civil union, commitment ceremony or other dedication. Love is love.
Q. Is photography your full-time job?
A. No. It is not. But that does not mean that I am any less professional about what I do. Eleven Eleven Photography is a fully-operational business entity registered with the state of Texas. My “other job” is being mommy to my four (yes, 4) beautiful children. I try to schedule no more than 1-2 weddings per month so that I can devote sufficient time and attention to each and every wedding that hires me.
