Morgan & Jordan – Harrisburg Illinois Engagement Photographer

Harrisburg Illinois Engagement Photographer

Welcome

 

 

HOW MUCH?

Starting wedding package: $2100
Sessions start at: $150

 

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

Absolutely!!!  After you pay the $800 to get officially on the books….the final balance is due a month before your wedding.  As far as how/when that final balance get’s to me…I am completely flexible.  I had a Father of the Bride pay $200 per month the year before his daughters wedding….and they had their balance paid off well before the wedding.

 

DO YOU TRAVEL?

Yer dern tootin’ !!!

So far I have shot weddings in St. Lucia, Mexico, Chicago, New Orleans, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Louisville…. the list goes on and on.

For weddings that are 2- 3 hours away from Southern Illinois I require 1 night hotel and 50 cents per mile to and from.  If your location is further than 2-3 hours driving…but still a drivable distance, I require 2 nights in a hotel and 50 cents per mile.

For destination weddings shoot me an email and let’s work out a custom package to include all of the travel fees into one package deal.

 

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yesssirree!  I carry full liability and professional indemnity insurance as should ANY professional wedding photographer. If your venue requires proof I would be happy to email them with that.

 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

Crisp, clean & modern yet classic.  AND TONS OF FUN!!!  I prefer to keep my editing very minimal so that your wedding images will stand the test of time.  I don’t like to jump on the new trendy editing bandwagons that come and go.

 

DO I NEED TO COME UP WITH POSES?

HECK NO!  I have that all under control.  I have tons of ideas and the way that I prefer to work with my clients isn’t necessarily posing..it’s more like directing.  I will give you things to do and movements to make that will make your images look more natural and representative of your personalities.

 

HOW SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY WEDDING DAY?

About a month before your wedding we will get back together, either in person or on the phone, to plan out the timeline for your wedding.  I like to try to be as organized as possible.  Timelines aren’t the gospel…and nine times out of ten we are going to get off schedule at some point, but at least we are all on the same page to start out with.

 

 

WHY SHOULD I HIRE YOU?

Of all the weddings that I have shot over the last 10 years, the ones that stick out the most in my mind are the ones where the bride and groom put a priority on experiencing their wedding day.  Your wedding photography experience should be a fun addition to your day and something that you look forward to.

My most important goal is your comfort and enjoyment. We are going to get amazing images of your wedding…that’s a given, but I want you to have a great time while we’re getting them.

To the dudes….just trust me.  I’m going to keep it quick and painless.

To the girls….get ready to have a blast while we get awesome images that will become your family legacy…(and cause lots of social media envy to your friends)  ? ?
