HOW SHOULD I DRESS FOR MY SESSION?
I recommend simple, classic attire for photos. Definitely try to coordinate your family, but matching is not necessary. Wear something comfortable that will allow you to sit and stand comfortably. Try to avoid clothing with wording and loud patterns.
WHERE WILL WE SHOOT MY SESSION?
The possibilities are endless! I can offer up suggestions and you are welcome to suggest some of your favorite locations as well. Keep in mind that some locations require photography fees, which will be added to your session fee.
I AM ON A PRETTY TIGHT BUDGET. DO YOU EVER OFFER DISCOUNTS OR SPECIALS?
Mini-sessions are a great way to save money and are offered a few times throughout the year. I also offer a great referral program. For each new client you refer, you receive a print credit.
WILL I GET BLACK AND WHITES AS WELL AS COLOR PHOTOS?
Yes. I offer a black and white and color version of every final image from portrait sessions. I convert a select amount of wedding images to black and white.
DO YOU INCLUDE THE CD?
The edited high resolution digital images are included with all weddings and portrait sessions. Portrait sessions are delivered electronically, for your convenience, and wedding images are burned to high quality DVD’s and sent to your home.
HOW DO I RESERVE MY SESSION DATE?
Session fees must be paid in advance to reserve your session date.
DO I GET THE FULL RIGHTS TO MY WEDDING/SESSION IMAGES?
You will receive a print release, which allows you to make unlimited prints at the lab of your choice. The photographer retains full copyright.
ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF PHOENIX?
Yes! Please contact me for more details.
HOW WILL I EVER DECIDE WHAT PRINTS AND PRODUCTS TO PURCHASE?
I would love to meet you in your home and discuss what size prints and types of products will go best with your personal taste and decor. Please ask me about in-person ordering sessions.
CAN I POST MY PHOTOS ON FACEBOOK?
You are welcome to share your photos on Facebook. Please make sure to credit the photographer in the caption and do not crop or alter the image.
CAN I EDIT MY PHOTOS WITH PHOTO EDITING SOFTWARE?
Your photos have been edited according to the photographer’s artistic vision. Please respect that vision and do not alter your finished images in photo editing programs.
DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?
I enjoy shooting outdoors and inside the client’s home. I may consider a studio in the future, but at this time I do not have one.
WHEN WILL MY PHOTOS BE READY?
Portrait session photos are usually complete within 1 week. Wedding photos take 4-6 weeks.
YOU CAN JUST PHOTOSHOP THAT (BLEMISH, STAIN, FROWN, TEAR, ETC) OUT RIGHT?
Anything you see in person will show up in your photos. Please choose your outfits with care. I don’t mind photoshopping blemishes and performing other simple edits on the images that you choose to order. If your images require extensive editing due to circumstances outside of my control, an additional fee will be charged for editing.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS?
I have been in business since May 2008, so almost 5 years. I can hardly believe it has been that long. Time flies when you’re having fun!
