Getting engaged is so exciting! If you haven’t already, get that dream wedding Pinterest board created and start pinning away!
Like most brides, you want those killer photos you see on Pinterest, and we’re here to deliver just that. We’re all about edgy romance, candid scrunched nose laughs,
and overall… creating and capturing genuine emotion and authentic moments.
But also like most stressed, giddy brides, your mind is probably racing a million miles a minute with alllll the “what ifs”…
We’re here to:
What will it cost?
We believe photography is artistic storytelling and each couple has their own beautiful love story to tell. We're all about the authentic messy, in between moments and adventures. The raw emotion.
We pour our whole hearts and souls into capturing every detail of your love. If you're looking for a photographer who only views you as a date on the calendar, we aren't your gals. But if you're looking for bonus friends, planners, and a wedding experience that far exceeds just snapping a photo, we're all in!
We offer three wedding packages starting at $4,000. A $1,000 deposit and signed contract is required for the security of your wedding date. For destination weddings and elopements, we tailor travel costs to the location, so reach out for pricing!
Our wedding packages all include:
"All we can say is... WOW! From the moment we met them, we instantly clicked, and we felt like we had known them our whole life. Prior to our engagement session, we had never been professionally photographed, and it wasn’t long before we felt insanely comfortable in front of the camera with them. Half the time, we didn’t even realize that they were there photographing us because they wanted us to be our true selves, and that is definitely what they got! All their photos look so natural and not staged, which is what drew us to them. I did not know what to expect or what I wanted in photos, but they exceeded our expectations x1000. Now we have the biggest problem of all, picking pictures to put up in our apartment because we LOVE them ALL! You can truly tell how much they love their work and you can see their passion in every single photo. Snag this incredible duo up before it is too late! You will not be disappointed!"
"When I first met Kayla and Erika after my initial inquiry, I knew they had to be a part of our day! I was drawn to their photos because of how timeless they are; they tell the story of every couple they capture, which was so important to me for our wedding day. Our engagement & wedding photos exceeded every expectation and we will probably never use any other photographers! Not only are Kayla and Erika amazing photographers, but they are amazing people too, and we felt like we got to spend our wedding day with our friends, not vendors :)"
"Amazing!! I loved their style from the second I saw one picture. Their pictures look natural but also could be something you see in a magazine! My husband and I spent our night laughing and crying (mainly me) all over again while looking through our wedding pictures. Kayla and Erika captured our day PERFECTLY and we couldn’t be more grateful to have had them there for our day. Through one of the most difficult times in their lives, they still showed up and made our day so enjoyable and special. Their dedication and love for their clients is unmatched! Words simply cannot begin to explain how thankful we are. We love that we can relive our amazing day through our pictures over and over again."
"Kayla and Erika with Now and Then Photography are an absolute gift from God. They are doing exactly what they were intended to do and boy, are they good at it. I can assure you, they will think of EVERYTHING, and even with life’s trials and tribulations they will continue to show up for their couple’s day after day. The great thing about Kayla and Erika is they know how to provoke genuine emotion; they know how to get you out of your shell and capture what weddings are truly about -- joy and love. Their attention to detail is exquisite. I can say without a shadow of a doubt, they exceeded my expectations."
"Loved loved loved!! Kayla and Erika are the sweetest gals and captured our wedding day so beautifully! We also had an engagement session with them. My husband and I can be a little awkward around a camera, but we felt 100% comfortable with Now and Then Photography and had so much fun! They truly cared about us and our needs. I highly highly recommend. We love them so much!!"
"We cannot stop looking through our photos! Kayla and Erika did such an incredible job capturing this day for us! From the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for being a part of our day! Hiring these two was one of the best decisions we ever made. They are the sweetest souls. This whole process with them was a testament to their passion and talent for capturing these magical moments. We love them dearly and cannot wait to get in touch with them again to capture the next big moments in our lives!"
"Kayla and Erika are absolutely amazing! These two ladies are the sweetest people you will ever meet. We just got our entire album back from our wedding day, and to say that I am impressed is an absolutely understatement. The photos from our wedding are stunning. They captured every single moment of our day and did so in such a beautiful manner. I could go on and on about how wonderful these two ladies are. The best decision we made for our wedding was to hire Now and Then as our photographers! We love them both so so much!"
"Kayla and Erika were by far the best decision we made while planning our wedding. Their flexibility, kindness, and attention to detail made the entire wedding planning process easier. Being a COVID wedding couple, we experienced a lot of troubles leading up to our big day (which turned into multiple dates). Now and Then Sisters were there with us every step of the way. It was one less thing we had to worry about in a very difficult time of planning, and for that we will always be thankful! We are so in love with all of the beautiful photos that they took and we are so happy that we have these special memories! We LOVE Kayla and Erika and can't wait to continue to use their services as our family grows."
"Kayla and Erika were a joy to work with! They not only captured my wedding day beautifully, but provided seriously superior customer service throughout my wedding planning process. They provided a detailed bridal guide that helped me plan everything from the pictures I wanted them to take to my day of schedule of events. They even sent a date night box to help us de-stress before the wedding! They made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera and were incredibly professional and sweet our entire wedding day. I highly recommend this dynamic sister duo!!"
"I could truly write a book on how much we loved our experience with Kayla and Erika. Every step of planning with them I felt like we were collaborators and they wanted our wedding day and everything that goes along with it to go as smoothly as possible. I have a lot of anxiety around being the center of attention and I hate pictures, but these ladies made the experience so easy for me and even FUN which I definitely did not expect :) Our engagement and wedding photos turned out so completely beautiful and I'm beyond grateful that I found Now and Then on the knot back when I first started wedding planning. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!"
"We could not have been more pleased with N&T. Our wedding photos are amazing, they did such a good job working with our schedule and what photos we wanted. Very professional and personable and we loved how kind and easygoing they were. They provided us with the most comfortable wedding photo experience."
Leading up to your wedding day, we are in constant contact. Once you book us, we send you our bridal guide. This baby is packed full of wedding tips and tricks, especially when it comes to preparing for a day of beautiful memories and photos. You're not in this alone! We love guiding our couples through the process. So don't stress about a thing. We got you covered! You just focus on marrying your best friend.
We're booked! YAY! Now we schedule your engagement session. This is so important because you learn our style and we get a feel for your chemistry. Don't be stressed about your photos... just come as you are, ready to love on one another! We are here to capture you as YOU. No awkward prom poses. Just the simple, tender moments that make your relationship so special.
If we're a good fit, it's time to book your wedding with us (and cue a happy dance)! We require a signed contract and deposit to secure your wedding date. So once you know for sure you want the Now and Then Sisters part of your wedding day, let's get the party started before someone else snatches up your date!
Give us all the details! Where are you getting married? What is your dream wedding vision? We love to meet up with our potential clients and talk all things wedding. This is our opportunity to get to know one another and to see if we're a good fit. Don't worry... this is a zero pressure meeting. Just a chance for you to learn more about us and our photography style and for us to get to know you as well!
The snuggles. The laugh until you cry moments. The overwhelming emotion of marrying your best friend. The champagne pops and happy dances. You two... just as you are. THIS is what we strive to capture... the genuine, authentic, and candid moments that make your love so remarkable. Don't worry... we will do some posed photos and family photos (family is so important, after all!), but the majority of your time with us will be spent simply enjoying each other and your friends and family.
We use Canon R6 and a variety of lenses that capture everything from the sparkle in your diamond to the full room view of your venue. We have backup gear that we bring to every wedding. Plus, we have a lighting system that provides us with the ambiance we need to capture beautiful reception photos.
No way! We will give you some prompts and ask you to do some silly things to draw out those genuine smiles and interactions between you two. We try our best to make your time with us painless and fun, but most importantly... comfortable. We love to play music. It loosens the nerves and creatively pumps us up. We always ask for your favorite songs so you can join in on our bad singing or dance moves. If all else fails, we won't discourage liquid courage. ;)
We offer all our clients a personal styling service. It's super awesome, actually! All you have to do is answer a couple questions based on what vibe you're going for and our styling service will take you to a variety of options. Use it as inspiration as you're rummaging through your closet OR purchase a new wardrobe using the direct shopping links that appear in your search. Not to mention, we LOVE LOVE LOVE coordinating with you as you pick out your wardrobe. So if you have any questions or doubts, shoot us a text and we will be more than happy to help you out.
Your turnaround time will depend on how busy we are at that time, but we promise you will get them as soon as possible! We completely understand how exciting it is to receive your photos! But we take great care in editing your photographs and aim to deliver you the best quality. The editing process is a huge part of our art and style. After your wedding, we will give you an estimated timeframe. Typically, weddings take 10 to 12 weeks to edit and deliver back to you. We almost always post a sneak peek on social media (because we are just as excited as you)!
All you have to do is contact us using our contact form or shoot us a message on Facebook or Instagram! We will ask you some basic information about your session (date, location, etc.). If we have your requested date available, you will need to sign a contract and pay your $1,000 deposit to secure your date. We typically take the months of December and January off to recharge and spend time with our family.
Absolutely! We love meeting with our potential brides and grooms... whether face-to-face or video chat. If our schedule allows, we love meeting for coffee and discussing all things wedding. But if it's during our peak busy season, we are more than happy to schedule a video chat and still talk all things wedding (just virtually). :)
We completely understand that your wedding photography is an investment, so you're able to select a payment plan that best fits your finances. To secure your date, we will need your $1,000 deposit, but the remaining balance can be customized to whatever works best for you. We also offer automatic payments so you have one less thing to worry about.
If you cancel your services with us, you will forfeit your $1,000 deposit.
Yes! We love to travel and capture those wildly in love all over the world. For weddings, we travel up to 45 miles outside Peoria, IL before travel expenses apply.
If you're interested in booking us for your destination wedding or elopement, we will discuss location with you before determining the final cost of your package. We will tailor the cost to the location. And you won't need to worry about booking our travel. We will take care of that, because you already have enough on your plate!
