Typically 4-6 weeks for engagement/ bridal sessions and maximum 8-10 weeks for a wedding. It all depends on how busy I am in the season. I will send you some sneak peeks within 48 hours of your session/wedding to hold you over until you get your full gallery! 

RAW doesn’t just mean unedited, and I think a lot of people get confused by that. It’s actually a HUGE giant format in which our camera takes photos. Part of the reason I get hired is because of my editing style - that's where the real magic happens. Editing is just as much of an art as taking the actual photos. I have worked incredibly hard to create a custom editing style and technique that brings uniqueness to Aspen & Co. Photo + Film

Presets are custom made editing filters applied when editing/using Adobe Lightroom. Photographers run all their photos through a specific set of presets in order to cultivate a certain editing style and feel for their photos.

During the year I always try to offer discounts and specials at different points but it is not something you should except necessarily. If you have a specific budget/price range you are trying to stick around please tell me in your inquiry and consult call.

I currently shoot with a Canon 6D Mark ll body, a Canon 5D Mark IV body and then a 35mm, 50mm and 75-300mm lens. I am also looking to add a mirrorless camera to my gear bag soon :)

Once you have booked your package, I will start crafting a customized timeline of your wedding day with you a few months before you tie the knot! I will be in contact with you a lot leading up to your wedding day to ensure there is no stress! And if you need recommendations on vendors, I will be happy to support you in that area! 

Bridal sessions have become a trend over the last few years. This of course varies between photographers, but usually, a bridal session is a photography session prior to the actual wedding day where you put on your dress and have photos taken of yourself in your complete bridal look. This is a great opportunity to try your hair and make up, do a first look, take your photos somewhere you probably wouldn’t have time for on your wedding day and also a way to display some of your photos on your actual wedding day!

If your wedding is located within 25 miles of Highland Park, IL then there are no travel fees. Anything outside of that radious will have a 0.56 fee per mile outside that radious! If the drive is 2 or more hours, I will require hotel accommodation for the night of the wedding/session. 

A print/video release gives you limited access to your images and videos. This means you can use them for your own personal reasons and nothing else. With a print/video release vs. a copyright release, the photographer/videographer still owns the images and videos.

Our out of state and international packages include travel fees which means that when you book the package, you have paid for your o coverage, your edited photo gallery, then 1 photographer/videographer to travel to the location where your wedding/session is taking place. 

Yes I do! I shoot destination weddings along with destination elopements too. Reach out to me on the contact page if you want to do a destination/international location! I am happy to help customize a package for you!

Depending on which package you select will determine whether or not there is a second shooter. However, second shooters are always available if wanted!

It is completely up to you. I do not build second shooters into my packages anymore so it will incur an additional fee to have a second photographer. The rate for a second photographer is $75/hr.
