Chicago Professional Photographer
Since 2005 Marmalade Photography has been creating images for discerning clients who seek a custom photography experience with beautiful products for display or to mark the beautiful history of their families’ life. We are thrilled to have photographed so many Chicago families and love our vast base of repeat clients that have allowed us the honor of watching their families grow up through the years! So many of these beautiful faces grace the pages of our galleries on this site & our blog. Many thanks to our Marmalade Family (our extended family of clients) who have helped MP become the pinnacle choice for photography of kids in the city of Chicago and the premiere choice for family photos in the suburbs of Chicago.
MP offers several session options.
Our most popular is our Signature Session where you commission our work and we either come to you or you come to us (Marmalade Location). Our session entails a creative fee with no minimum purchase requirement.
If you prefer an all inclusive all digital option look at either our Simply Marmalade Digital Sessions or Short & Sweet Marmalade Mini Sessions (click links for descriptions).
SESSION FEES for SIGNATURE SESSIONS and the PROCESS of a typical session
- Marmalade Locations (forest, field or urban locations of ours located within the SW suburbs): $195
- On Location (we come to you within metro Chicagoland at your home or other location of your choosing): $295
Session fees cover the artists’ time to create your images, prep them for online viewing and a phone ordering appointment. You will be presented with at least 25-35 unique images/poses in your gallery in varying color presentations (color, b&w and vintage as applicable). You will have several days of online viewing and we will have a phone ordering appointment for image selection.
Our heirloom quality presentation is not your run-of-the-mill photo paper print that will bend, curl and warp under glass. Our prints are lovingly mounted and printed in one of two two finish options to suit your decor perfectly, we guarantee that with proper care these images will be stable for generations to come. Our standard heirloom quality 8×10 (and smaller prints) start at $70*. Wall prints of 16×20 and larger start at $325. Collections start at $995.
Your images will be ready to view about 3 weeks after your session, you will have several days to make selections and then we will have a phone ordering appointment together to make your selections (be it prints, wall prints, albums, digital images, etc). Products (prints, digital images) are a separate purchase and will be delivered 3-5 weeks after your ordering session.
Prints & Digital Images: we are specialists in creating stunning wall art galleries (the link showcases 3-20x30s over a bench in a client’s home). These art pieces are heirloom quality imagery, lovingly prepped and printed from the finest professional photography labs in the Nation and ready for framing for your home & office. We create these beautiful custom wall galleries for our clients on a regular basis as well as albums and other custom items.
We LOVE our Gallery Albums and they are a very popular option amongst clients old and new! These beautifully printed albums are available printed with either a custom printed canvas cover, a custom glossy print cover -or- with a beautiful leather cover option. The Gallery Album features thick pages with elegantly rounded corners and these albums are endlessly customizable. Our standard album comes as an 8×8″ album, packaged in a black box with 20 image pages however you can upgrade and customize your album to a number of sizes and additional pages and collage layouts as needed. Each Gallery Album is custom designed with your selection of images from your session and hand crafted by artisan’s one of our professional labs for a stunning presentation and start at $1295.
