Frequently Asked Questions:
How do you pronounce your name?
Don’t worry, I get that question a lot. Ryn sounds like “Wren.” It’s short for Lauryn. It was a nickname that started in college and that just kinda stuck.
Do you travel?
Of course! My heart comes alive when I explore new places and meet new people. I charge a flat rate travel fee for any wedding two hours outside of Chicago. The fee includes all transportation, hotel, and incidentals. For more information about my pricing and travel costs, use this form to say hello!
How soon do I get my images and how many can I expect?
For weddings, I have a turn around time of 6-8 weeks. Depending on coverage, I hand over anywhere from 600-900 edited images for your personal use. For engagement sessions, you can expect a 4-6 week turnaround time and anywhere from 80-100 edited images.
Can I share my photos on social media?
Yes please! I would be honored if you share your photos. That's what they're here for. You will receive a thumb drive with the digital files of your images that you can upload, print, share, whatever you would like. I just ask that you give me a shout out when sharing.
How do you feel about posing?
While I will always give some direction, I have found that more often than not, the best photos come when you are free to be fully you. I will be sure to grab a few standard photos for grandma. But overall, I love creating the space needed to help you relax into the beauty of the moment and forget there is even a camera around. Check out more info about my approach info here.
Do you offer albums?
Yes. I offer personally designed albums that are printed on ultra thick paper. While digital files are nice, a wedding album is a wonderful opportunity to capture the fullness of your story, in a physical and concrete way.
