WHAT TO EXPECT

What is the process like?

Having planned my own wedding, I understand the nuances and stresses that come with wedding planning. So I like to make the process nice and simple, so here’s how we get started:

  1. Take a look around my site and if you like what you see, head over HERE and fill out the inquiry form with as much details as possible. I’ll be touch within 48 hours and we can schedule a phone/video call where we can get to know one another to see if we’re a great fit and for me to understand your wedding vision and what is important to you.
  2. Once you’re ready to book, I’ll send over a contract and invoice for a retainer fee so we can reserve your wedding date.
  3. Now that it’s official, my work begins immediately and we start planning all the details that will make your wedding day perfect. We’ll get together and have conversations and personalized questionnaires that allow me to understand you two and your wedding vision better. We’ll craft the perfect timeline for your day together.
  4. The wedding has now arrived! All the details are figured out and all the planning is done, now all that’s left is for you two to kick back with the people you love and enjoy the day that you’ve been waiting for. Leave the photos up to me and you’ll receive your completed gallery within a few short weeks.

FAQ


01
Where are you located?

I am based in Chicago, but work throughout the Midwest. Don’t let that stop you if you’re getting married elsewhere! I’ll go anywhere around the world for your wedding/session, my passport is always up to date.

02
Do you photograph weddings with a second photographer?

It depends on a wedding to wedding basis. I would recommend having a second photographer when logistically it’d be impossible to have coverage in two places at once, when the guest list is 125+, or anytime you just want a different perspective of coverage.

03
Do you edit your images? What is your turnaround time?

Every single image you receive is delivered just as I intend it to be with color, cropping and exposure. This includes photos from any second shooter so your collection will feel consistent and seamless from start to finish. I can’t wait for you to see your photos too! My turnaround time is usually 4-6 weeks, depending on time of year. At that time, your customized online gallery will be made available for you and all your friends and family to see.

04
How do you handle backups?

All of my camera bodies have dual card slots, meaning there will be 2 copies of your photos from the very beginning. As soon as I get home, they are all backed up to separate hard drives and a cloud backup before I head to bed.

05
Do you offer albums?

I absolutely do! I believe your photos are made to be more than just screen savers or Instagram posts; they’re meant to tell a story. What better way than to have them in a book that can be passed down for generations? Your final online gallery will have a storefront with options for printing as well as albums that I have handpicked for you to choose from. I also do custom album design which is included in my top package or as an add-on.

06
You seem like a cool guy and we'd love to have you for our wedding, when do we need to book you and how do we get this started?

If your wedding is on a Saturday or holiday weekend, I highly recommend booking at least a year in advance as those dates tend to fill up the quickest. Reserving your wedding requires a $2000 retainer fee along with a signed contract. You can start the process by filling out the form on my Connect page.

Testimonials

Kyle is absolutely wonderful and he was great to work with from start to finish! He is so thoughtful and reached out to us when he was traveling to the west coast to take the time to meet us in person and take some really special engagement pictures. Kyle was so organized and gave clear responses to all of our questions throughout wedding planning and helped us come up with a great timeline. On the day of our wedding, he was a great presence to have around- so calming and organized to capture each special moment. He returned a sneak peak and then our full album so quickly and we loved it all so much! He captured everything from our love for each other and the city of Chicago, our wonderful family and friends, and all the small special details as well. All of his photos came out so beautiful and will be cherished forever. I highly recommend Kyle!
Alyssa & Brian
Kyle did a wonderful job helping keep our day on track and even scouted out to help us have the best experience for our first look. He even reached out when he was in our neck of the woods cross-country to do a practice session. He worked with our wants of having more candid photos and was a pleasure to work with. The photos are even better than we could have imagined. You will be so very happy to have him capture your special day, too!
Melissa & Colin
Kyle was timely, friendly, and a full-professional while he worked with us to make our engagement and wedding pictures truly special! He was able to capture all the moments we asked for, and every picture turned out to be exactly what we had hoped. He has such a great personality too, which made working with him a breeze and a lot of fun. In all honesty, we could not have found a better photographer, and we are extremely grateful to have gone with Kyle!
Sarah & Mike
Kyle & team did a great job capturing the romantic vibe our of venue, our love and the amount of fun our friends & family had the day of our wedding. He is extremely friendly and made everyone comfortable immediately. We had some setbacks the day of our wedding with plans changing slightly which impacted our photo schedule. Kyle adapted quickly and came up with a Plan B which he communicated in a calm and optimistic manner. This put me at ease and allowed me to stay in the moment to enjoy our special day. There were so many good photos to choose from and we love our prints! We cannot wait to get our album.
Katie & Rob
I loved working with Kyle. He listened to what we wanted, and he delivered and then some. The weather did not cooperate on our wedding day which lead to a lot of delays and changes on the fly. Kyle not only went with the flow, he kept me calm saying how great everything looked, and he helped my husband and I both know we were both calm. I honestly am obsessed with my photos and can't stop looking at them.
