Q: How long have you been a photographer?
A: Emily Vonx learned film photography in college a really long time ago, and has been in love with photography ever since. In 2003, she became a professional portrait photographer and shot her first wedding. She hasn't slowed down since. Shortly after that, she began assisting other experienced professional wedding photographers around Chicago. She's been a professional working artist for almost 20 years. If you’d like a referral, just ask.
Q: What is your photography style?
A: Our photography style is vibrant, bold, and natural. Our philosophy is that your images don’t have to be perfectly posed -what we focus on is capturing the moment as we see it, in hopes that it will bring back a real memory. One thing we love about working with people is really getting to know them... your personalities and your motivations - and figuring out how to tell that story in the images that you’ll keep forever.
Q: Do you travel outside of chigago?
A: Emily Vonx Photography is based in Chicgao, however our photographers will travel nationally as well as internationally to photograph your wedding.
Q: when should we hire your services?
A: We advise clients to book early to avoid disappointment, so retain us as soon as you have confirmed the date and secured the wedding venue. Note that holidays and special dates are very popular so they tend to get booked very early.
Q: Is it necessary to do an engagement session?
A: We highly recommend doing an engagement session although it’s not absolutely necessary. But we'd say the time we spent doing the pictures together acts as a rehearsal for your wedding day. You’ll not only get amazing pictures after the shoot but we’ll also get to work with each other so the wedding day will go as smooth as it can be!
Q: How long will our engagement session be?
A: It can be anywhere from 1-3 hours. Anything less than 1 hour is way too short and we found 2 hours is just about right. With this timeframe you’ll also get to go multiple locations and change an outfit or two.
Q: how much posing instruction do you give during your engagement session?
A: Our goal is to capture as much candid pictures as possible (the moments shot), however, there will be times I’ll pose you two to get the shot you are looking for. Don’t worry, We’ll keep constant communications with you two and make sure you both look and especially feel great
Q: we're not sure where to go for our session, can you give us some ideas?
A: For sure! We have a list of places we can recommend to you.
Q: What do you recommend to wear?
A: We are not fashion experts, but we recommend wearing solid color clothing. Stay away from heavy stripes or patterns and any holiday color combinations. In other words, just treat it like you both are going on a date!
