Q.  What does the process of booking look like?

            A.  After looking through the website, and talking with your family or future spouse, you decided you want to get more info about NJ photography.  The first step would be to select the CONTACT button on the left of the screen and fill out the info required.  That form will go directly to Nikki and she will get back to you shortly.  After receiving an email from you, she can begin to put together a price quote specifically for your event.  Because each wedding is unique and different, we want to make sure we create a package just for you!  From there we can set up a meeting, draft a contract and book the appointment.  More of a “see before you buy” kind of person, no problem!  Let’s set up a meeting!


Q.  What does payment look like?

            A.  For weddings, half the cost is due at the time of booking, and the remainder is due a week before the wedding.  For portraits, payment is due at the time of the photo shoot.  I only accept cash or check and please make checks payable to Nikki Jilek.


Q.  What do we get when we book with you?

            A.  A DVD with all edited images, rights to all images, and an engagement session with booking a wedding.


Q.  When will I receive the DVD?

            A.  For a portrait sessions: 4-6 weeks and  wedding photos: 6-8 weeks


Q.  What should I wear to our photography session?

            A.  Stay away from bright white.  Ivory or off white photographs better.  Busy shirts with graphic text or patterns can often be too loud for a photo.  Neutral colors are always safe.  Accent colors or accessories are awesome.  Solids and simple patterns are great.  Make sure you are comfortable.  Additional things to bring would be: comfortable shoes incase we do a bit of walking, any props that you desire or things that describe the two of you, thank you signs or save the date props.


Q.  Do you travel outside the Twin Cities?

            A.  Yes!  I love travel!  The location is factored into the package I present to you.


Q.  Do you have a studio?

            A.  No, maybe in the future, but I prefer to be outside working with natural light.  I come to you!


Q.  Where should we take our photos?

            A.  The options here are limitless.  If there is a spot that is important to you, or describes your personality, we can shoot there.  I have plenty of favorite spots too!
