F A Q:

Combining documentary fine-art & editorial fashion


General Questions:

Where are you located? 

I am based in Chicago & New York, but am available for travel domestically, internationally. There are flat rates for domestic & international weddings and am always passport ready.

How comfortable are you with traveling?

About 30% of the weddings booked are travel weddings so am definitely very comfortable traveling for your special day.

What is required to officially book you for one of these sessions?

A 50% deposit and signed contract is required to officially book. 

Will I be able to view or access the unedited pictures from my session?

Like all other sessions Connie Marina Photography offers, unedited pictures are not available for viewing, but your session is designed to show you the most flattering/edited images :)

Do you retouch your images?

Each image is individually cropped, color corrected, and balanced, but finer blemish retouching is an additional fee. 

How many of your images are black and white?

About 10% of pictures are black and white unless otherwise requested :)

How long does it take for personal photo sessions (engagement, baby, family portraits) to get back to me?

The official full set of pictures will be sent through email to you in 2 weeks.


Wedding photography questions

Do you have an assistant?

A complimentary 2nd shooter is included in every package. 

How do I secure my wedding day? Can you hold our date?

Unfortunately due to only taking on only a certain number of weddings a year, I do not hold dates. To officially book there is a 50% deposit and signed contract.

How long does it take for the Wedding photography to get back to me?

Wedding sneak peaks (Couple portraits) will be emailed to you two within 3 weeks. The official full set of your pictures will be sent over within 5 weeks of your wedding day. I do not offer same-day edits, as I want to present the most polished and refined version of the image :). 

How will I receive my Wedding pictures?

Your high-resolution wedding pictures will sent through email so you can easily download the images/share them with friends and family. 

Do you offer printed wedding albums?


Do you have photography & vendor insurance?

Absolutely :)
