Every couple receives their pictures through online password protected galleries. Once you have your gallery of edited high-resolution images, you can share and download the pictures as much as you'd like! Anyone you share the download pin and password to can access the gallery.
The photos are yours to use and share however you'd like! So, you can post on all of your social media platforms (@alexandraleephoto for tagging), email them to friends, print as gifts, put in frames around your home, etc.
I recommend any couple with 6+ hours and over 100 guests have a second photographer. There are tons of benefits of having one as well. We can get more done in a short time, more moments, angles, and people photographed with two sets of eyes (which equals more photos), and they handle getting ready and cocktail hour while I'm with the other person in the morning or doing reception details.
I do travel! (Bonus points if you're going somewhere warm during the Chicago winters! ;)) If you're going to have a wedding or engagement session outside of the Chicagoland area, let me know so we cam create a custom quote for you. Quotes vary depending on the location and method of travel to get there. Top bucket list - Italy, Greece, France, Hawaii, SoCal, Mexico, etc.
It's super a super simple process! Send me an email to let me know you'd like to move forward. I'll send over a document with a contract and invoice. Everything can be done online and with payment of your choice. Once the contract is signed and the retainer is paid, we'll be officially official for your date!
Industry standard for wedding gallery turn around time is 8-12 weeks. However, I'm a huge proponent for quick and easy service. (I mean, we will in an Amazon Prime life anyway!). I deliver galleries in half the time. Within 4-6 weeks you'll have all of your memories in your inbox.
It all depends on the wedding. Is your wedding in the city? Is your ceremony a Catholic ceremony? Is there travel to and from different locations? Do you have a large bridal party? Do you want lots of portrait time? Do you want multiple portrait locations? Let me know the details of the day and what you want. From there, I can help you determine the hours you'll need. On average my couples book 9 or 10 hours of coverage. You can book up to 12 hours of coverage.
On average a couple can expect 75-100 images per hour of coverage. This will vary wedding to wedding depending on differing factors. (Hours of coverage, bridal party size, family size, guest count, detail heavy weddings, events that happen, etc). A 10 hour wedding day can expect on average 750 - 1000 images. SO many photos! Yay!
Wedding photographers should be booked as soon as possible. They are among the first round vendors to get booked. I book as early as 18 months in advance and sometimes couples book me before venues. I recommend reaching out at least a year in advance to your wedding day.
Yes! They're the perfect way for us to get to know each other before the wedding and to get comfortable in front of the camera in a stress-free, low stakes environment. I teach you poses and you get a taste of what it's like to work with me photographing you beforehand. It really helps create trust and connection which in return = beautiful, authentic photos.
