Photography Investment


"We are making photographs to understand what our life means to us." - Ralph Hattersley


I believe investing in memories and experiences the most important item a family can budget for. Capturing those memories on film is even more special. In years to come, photos will be the one thing that will take you right back to a specific moment and will carry on throughout generations. Its always worth it.


I offer inclusive pricing for all photography sessions within 25 miles of La Grange, Illinois. All sessions include a specified number of included images in both color and black and white. These images will be available for digital download at the time of completion.


Print, framing and styling pricing available upon request.

FAQ

Do you travel outside of Chicago?

Typically, I stay within 25 miles of Chicago for all shoots. Additional travel will be evaluated upon request, and is subject to change in pricing.

What should I wear?

My biggest piece of advice? Be (and look like) yourself! The more comfortable you feel, the more natural you'll appear on camera. It's best to keep things neutral and simple so your smiling faces are the stars of the photograph, rather than your outfits. You can never go wrong with soft whites, grays and blues.

Outfit styling is available upon request.

What if there's bad weather?

We all know Chicago can go from sunshine and rainbows to downpours and wind in a matter of minutes. Not to worry! We'll find a mutually agreed upon day to reschedule. The best time for photos is 90 minutes after sunrise and 90 minutes before sunset.

What should I bring?

Backup outfits are never a bad idea, especially when kids are involved. Otherwise - get creative, and bring the fun! A pretty blanket, favorite outdoor (non-messy) toy, or beautiful floral arrangement makes for fresh photos and shows off your personality.

When can I expect to receive fully edited photos?

Unless otherwise noted, photos will be delivered within 15 days of the shoot.

How long will I have access to my photos?

The photos are yours to keep for life! You'll have access to fully edited photos via Casey Golden Photography's platform for a period of one year. I recommend downloading them to a personal computer (or two), mobile device and iCloud system.

What's the best way to reach Casey?

Text and email are best! When in doubt, a phone call is great.
