Questions

frequently asked

Q: How far in advance do you book?
A: We book weddings no more than 18 months in advance!

Q: Do you travel?
A: Yes! We adore traveling, and what better reason to do so than a wedding? We've photographed couples in IL, WI, IN, OH, IA, AL, TX, and more; we’re always open to destination & out of state weddings, as well as traveling throughout Illinois & the Midwest. For questions about travel details & cost, please inquire with us directly!

Q: How do engagement sessions work?
Once you are officially a C&L Couple, it’s time to plan your engagement session! You'll receive a detailed guide from us to help in discussing dates, times, location ideas & even style & planning tips. Your session does not have to take place immediately, so if you envision it taking place during a certain time of the year, we can plan for that!

Q: How long does it take to get my images back?
Our team works very hard to ensure you see some images before your honeymoon. You'll see a sneak peek within 24 hours of your wedding ending! Please feel free to share it with family & friends immediately. We guarantee the rest of your images will be finished within 4 weeks of your wedding!

Q: Will both of you be shooting our wedding?
A: Yes! Each of our Wedding Collections includes both Caitlin & Luke as your wedding photographers. We will both be present for your entire wedding day! 

Q: What if we're awkward in front of the camera?
A: Every couple worries about this- but don't worry!! It's our job to make sure you feel confident and comfortable, and you can't mess this up!

Q: How many weddings do you shoot per year?
A: We believe every couple deserves an unforgettable, highly personal wedding experience with the perfect photographer for them. For this reason, we only accept 5-10 weddings yearly.

Q: Can you hold our date until it’s official?
A: Wedding dates are booked first-come, first-serve! We require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer to hold your wedding date.

Q: How do we pay our retainer & final payment?
A: We use a program called Honeybook to manage your contract & invoice, as well as other important documents! You can pay via a credit card, bank transfer, or check.

Q: Do you offer payment plans?
A: Yes! After you pay your retainer, the remainder of your payment can be paid anytime before it’s final due date of 2 weeks before your wedding day. We’re happy to set up a custom payment plan for you!
  
Q: Why do I need a husband & wife team?
A: One of the main ones is that you automatically have two photographers for your wedding day! This allows you to receive more photos than one photographer could provide, it saves tons of time on a wedding day, and it allows us to capture the same moment from different perspectives. Working weddings together as a unified team gives us the ability to provide our couples with an unparalleled, relational, consistent & joyful wedding experience!

Q: Do we have rights to our photos?
A: You are encouraged to print & share your photos! Simply credit us when you share, and don't edit or alter your photos.
