Questions

frequently asked

Q: Do I have to work with you for both photography & videography?
A: Nope! In fact, 90% of our couples choose to work with us for just photography, and we accept a limited number of photo/video weddings annually.

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 Caitlin and Luke 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: Do you offer payment plans?
A: Of course! 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: How far in advance do you book?
A: We book weddings no more than 18 months in advance! 

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 around 20 weddings yearly.

Q: Can you hold our date until it’s official?
A: We require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer to hold your date. However, we’ll gladly inform you if another bride inquires about your date! 

Q: How do we pay our retainer and our full payment?
A: We use a wonderful program called Honeybook to manage your contract & invoice, as well as other important wedding documents! You can pay via a credit card or bank transfer within Honeybook, or you are more than welcome to mail us a check.
  
Q: Why do I need a husband & wife team?
A: We're so passionate about this question! Here are the main reasons we believe a husband and wife wedding photography team is so valuable: Instead of having to book and pay a second shooter, you automatically have two photographers for your wedding day! This allows you to receive more photos than one photographer could provide, and it allows us to capture the same moment from different perspectives. We also both are shooting during engagement sessions, so you’ll even receive extra photos during that part of your experience!

Q: Do we have rights to our photos?
A: You are more than welcome to print and share your photos! We ask is that you credit us when you share your photos and that you don't re-edit your photos before printing or sharing.
