Contact Samuel Gernand

Hi, I'm Samuel! I'm a Chicago based fine art wedding photographer. I'm all about giving couples a truly relaxed and down to earth experience. Being photographed doesn't have to be uncomfortable or boring!

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located in Chicago, IL! Locations outside of Chicago may incur a travel fee. Please inquire for a quote!

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been a full-time wedding photographer since 2017! I have photographed over 200 weddings throughout the years.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I consider my style to be "fine art" or "documentary". I focus on the interaction and emotions between couples and do not do a lot of posing. I enjoy keeping things relaxed and real.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

For full-day weddings, most of our couples book about 8 hours of coverage which costs approximately $4000.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I do not have a studio but I am happy to meet in-person over a coffee or drink! I primary use Zoom.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I am all about inclusivity and consider it a privilege to work with all kinds of couples, no matter their race, spiritual beliefs or sexual orientation, ect. Love is love and humans are humans.
