giving back

Our greatest purpose in life is to leave behind beauty, compassion, and love wherever we go. My associates and I have a deep desire to make a difference and give back in whatever way we can. We remain active in social justice causes and humanitarian crises both in our direct communities, as well as around the world. I have a deep rooted belief that we as living beings are all connected to every silent life on earth, and it is our duty to give back and offer aid whenever needed.

Each couple is unique, so I take the time to understand you, your vision, and your preferred style. I take a photo journalistic approach, letting moments unfold as they are and gently directing you when needed. On your wedding day, I will blend in and be un-obstructive, occasionally stepping in to direct you into the most flattering light and capturing your best angles. My images are timeless, romantic, ethereal, and inspired. I focus on capturing moments and real emotions that will make you feel all over again for years to come.

What is your photography approach?

your questions

I capture stories with a thoughtful mix of film and digital photography mediums. My clients and I are drawn to the timeless, whimsical, romantic look of film photography. Film is beautiful when there is plenty of light and a little time to focus on magic. I like to switch to digital for fast-paced moments and lower-light locations. We are confident in both mediums and both are incredible when used correctly. I personally edit every image and all digital images are matched to film for a beautifully cohesive, seamless gallery.

Do you shoot analogue (film) or digital photography?

I am based primarily in Chicago and Toronto. One of my favorite things in the world is to travel the world whenever i can. I create custom collections for destination weddings which will include travel and accommodation after we have discussed your destination and travel plans.

Where are you based and do you travel?

Travel for destination weddings is not included in our collection pricing. As each destination wedding is unique, we first listen and learn all about your wedding/event date(s) and your destination(s) before discussing travel arrangements. A quote will be added to your custom collection based on location and number of days photographing. We will handle all the specifics of travel to keep the experience as easy for you as possible unless otherwise specified. 

Is travel/accommodation included in the investment?

Each wedding is unique with its’ own pace and the amount of images received depends on the hours booked.With that said, you can typically expect 70-120 images per hour of coverage.

How many images do we get in our gallery?

The nature of my work is focused and precise. I take a lot of time, passion, and care into curating, editing, presenting, and completing each project. Film photography takes time but it is worth the extra few weeks. Your online gallery will be ready in 5-8 weeks after your wedding date.

When do we receive our images?

When it comes to retouching, I take a ‘less is more’ approach. I take a lot of time correcting colors and adjust the exposure of your images so that they are cohesive and beautiful. Adjustments are minimal, and your photographs will look timeless and clean. 

For further retouching requests, such as makeup/hair adjustments, photoshop manipulation, or retouching, we can recommend an outsourced professional. Though we find our clients love that our work is clean and untouched.

Do you retouch your photos?

After getting to know one another a bit and determining your collection, a digital contract will be sent to you, The signed and 50 percent deposit holds your wedding date. The remaining balance is due four weeks prior to your wedding.

How do we book you?

We realize that all weddings are unique in their own way, and require different services. I have a set of carefully curated collections you can choose from that are completely customizable to fit your specific needs. Full service weddings begin at an investment of $3,200. All collections include Mouna as your main photographer, high-resolution images on a luxurious crystal boxed USB drive, an online gallery, as well as printing rights. Contact us and we can create a specific investment outline to fit your collection needs.

Any sort of emergency that would come up would be unpleasant for all parties involved. In terms of your wedding date, we take the greatest care to ensure our health and lives are in top form and ready for the day. We arrive to all locations several days early to accommodate any sort of delay that may happen. If in the very rare event that unforeseen circumstances prevent me from photographing your event, we will arrange a replacement photographer of equal caliber and style. I am so blessed to have a strong network of wedding professionals around the world that would be able to help in this unlikely case.
