ready to book
1. We find a date and time
2. I'll send you some package options, an electronic contract + an invoice. These BOTH have to be received to officially reserve your spot.
*Similar process for weddings + portraits
Complimentary sneak peeks-not guaranteed, but I try to get something out within a business day.
Proofs- Portraits are 7-10 business days
Weddings- 30-45 days (spring to fall/peak season can take up to 45 days)
Product orders vary per item and can be quoted at booking.
Everything that leaves my computer has been color corrected, cropped (if needed) and basic portrait retouching on key images.
Minor temporary skin blemishes (within reason, I will not over process to make you plastic)
Minor distractions (trash cans etc....)
Minor photoshopping on key images or ordered images (extra skin hangover, mild double chin action)
I do not do extensive digital cosmetic surgery. If you need to look thinner, head swaps for group photos, removal of tattoos etc...then a quote will be provided per image from a professional retoucher. On average I've seen $15-$25 per image.
I do NOT provide a client with raw images (commercial clients exception).
PRODUCTS + DIGITALS
I have hand selected every single one of my vendors for quality, customer service and customization options.
Digital jpegs are offered as an add on to products because I believe you are coming to me to create something beautiful and personal to you. I want to start with an idea and create your photos with the end goal in mind to be an album, a wooden box and beautiful wall art that you can admire every time you pass it for years to come. Sounds cheesy, but these are the things that I value in my family.
You're free to print small gift prints with your digitals that you have purchased, but anything larger than that you will order through the studio so I can guarantee production.
I know some modern photographers are quick to just shoot and turn the images over and not care what you do with them, but I am here to fully serve you (plus, this is honestly my pleasure to know you're leaving with something unique and tangible)
Of course, if you'd like a digital only package it is available to purchase.
Filters and editing: At no time is it ever ok to edit or retouch an image without permission. It would be like getting home and deciding to add your own colors and strokes on top of a finished painting.
Screenshots + printing: Please don't screenshot or print proofs that have not been paid for.
Chances are you found me because you saw someone else's images. My prices are reflective that I will also have the same usage permissions from your session as well (boudoir is the exception).
No worries, I don't use last names (and often will just use first initial, unless you approve to tag you on social media)
I know some clients require great privacy and will have an option for limited usage with a tiered price structure.
