Frequently Asked Questions

How much can I expect to spend?

For small weddings and elopements taking place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, I require a minimum of $7,000 to book. 

For events taking place Mondays through Thursdays, my minimum is $3,000.

Will you travel for my small wedding or elopement?

Yes, absolutely.

If you feel a connection to my photography and we'd be a good fit to work together, I would be more than happy to travel for your wedding.

What do you typically capture at an elopement?

Because of my documentary style, I'm typically with you from start to finish to capture the complete story of your celebration. This includes those moments spent getting ready, the ceremony itself, portraits of the two of you and any loved ones present, and the spirit of your celebration to follow. 

Where can I elope in Chicago?

While City Hall is what most people think of first, I'd like to suggest some alternative ideas.

As long as you don't put any chairs, decor or equipment down, you can get married in just about any public park in Chicago. Consider parks like Olive Park, Lurie Garden, Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, North Avenue Beach, Montrose Harbor, and the gardens of the Art Institute.

Other ideas can include hotel suites (splurge on something fancy!), rooftops overlooking the city, scenic downtown vistas and places that are sentimental to you as a couple.

Please note that some locations may require a permit for photography.
