How many images do you shoot at a wedding?

A lot!  Between your film scans and edited digital images you would receive roughly 75 finished images per hour.  So for a 10 hour wedding expect to receive around 750 polished images from your wedding day.

 

What forms of payment do you take?

Lemon Twist Images takes Credit Card, Cash and Check.

 

Can you hold our date?

Unfortunately I cannot, LTI takes a limited amount of clients per year and cannot hold a date until a retainer and signed contract have been received.

 

What kind of retainer do you require and when is final payment due?

LTI requires a 25% retainer and the final payment is due 30 days prior to the wedding.

 

Where are you located?

Lemon Twist Images is located in the NW Suburbs of Chicago, Schaumburg to be exact.

 

Are you available for destination weddings?  Do you charge a travel fee?

Of course!  I love to travel, especially for weddings!  I can travel both stateside and internationally with passport ready to go.  As for a travel fee, I do not charge for local weddings within a 50 miles of Schaumburg.  If I need to fly, I charge for the cost of a plane ticket and 3 nights hotel stay.

 

Where can I view my wedding images?

Your images are hosted in an online gallery to share with friends and family for one year.  You will also receive all edited images on a USB drive inside a gorgeous heirloom wooden box handmade my master Amish craftsmen with select prints from your wedding day.

 

How long until we can see our photos?

During the heart of wedding season the average time it takes to edit your images, process and scan takes 4-6 weeks.

 

Do you have Insurance?

Yes, yes and yes!!  It is also one of the most important questions you need to ask your vendors.  Proof of insurance can be presented at any time, just ask!

 

How far in advance do you book?

On average, LTI books 9-12 months out

 

Do offer engagement sessions?

Absolutely!  An engagement sessions is completely complimentary in the top Collection and is available as an add on option to any of the Collections.  The images produced from an engagement session are perfect for display around the home, wedding guest books, save-the-dates, and Holiday cards.  Having an engagement session is an important time for us to get to know each other.  I will get the chance to see how you and your fiance interact with each other, find the most flattering angles for you, and you get a feel for how I work!  90% of LTI couples choose to have an engagement session.

 

Do you turn down weddings?

It’s so important that we’re a good fit.  A majority of your wedding day will be spent with your photographer, so we must mesh well as a team and be on the same page.  I am NOT the photographer for everyone and that’s ok.  Please review my portfolio to see if your style expectations match my own photographic style.  Ideally an initial consultation either in my studio, out for coffee or lunch help us get to know one another and if we’re the right fit.  If we’re not able to meet in person, Skype conversations also work out well.

 

Can I upgrade my package after I book?

Definitely, it’s important to get the date booked with LTI first and foremost, after that engagement sessions, albums, additional album spreads and extra hours can all be added to your Collection.
