A professional photography company should encourage communication, openness, and honesty in all areas. A large number of photographers in the Chicagoland area practice high-pressure and nondisclosure with regard to sales and pricing. In most instances, you will drive to your consultation without knowing your price. At MBD Photography, we offer an open and honest policy with a refreshing level of customer service.
How long does a consultation last?
A consultation will typically last 25 – 30 minutes. Our goal is to provide you with a detailed outline of the services requested. All information is presented in a low pressure environment to help you decide – is MBD Photography the ‘right fit’ for my event? We do not believe in a high pressure ‘sales’ environment. We want to deliver a concise and meaningful presentation that will allow you to make an informed decision.

Can I visit a wedding and see a photographer in action?
Absolutely not! MBD Photography is a professional and ethical corporation, it is our responsibility to maintain the privacy of our clients.
