Cheese, crackers, snacks, coffee, or...wine, bubbles. Almost all occasions call for one or more of these, including your photoshoot.
How does this work?
Outline below is intended for personal portrait sessions such as family, boudoir, branding, children, etc. If you are planning an event, wedding, or have corporate needs please see "Events-Corporate"
the PHONE call
For the best outcome, a conversation is necessary. This is an informal phone chat. You will come away with a birds eye view of the photoshoot plan customized for you, along with the appropriate fee schedule, and confirmation of services included.
After our chat, and if you like the plan we devised for you, this is the time to book your session. We require a $750 retainer fee (minimum) to schedule and plan your shoot, the balance is due at the ordering session. (The retainer fee is factored in to the total amount due.) We hate surprises and assume you do too! Communication is key.
After you have booked our time and the date, we will be in touch in the days or weeks prior to your shoot to firm up and finesse all the details such as 'what to wear' ' where to meet' etc. It is common to have multiple communications prior to a shoot.
Day of shoot
Excited? So are we! We are consumed by the entire experience. This is show time, and it is what we live for.
Depending on the type of shoot you requested, your day could be 8 hours long, or 30 minutes. In either case, we aim to make it the time well spent, and then some!
When the shoot wraps, we say goodbye. This is never easy, as it's certain we will be friends by then. You have things to do, we understand.
After your shoot we get busy putting together the best images from your session, and confirm our next meeting with you ( the ordering session.)
(bring the wallet)
The ordering session is another service that is automatically included in your plan. It is the 'reveal' and the moment you have waited for. Your images are displayed big and bright, with multiple methods for choosing and envisioning them finished, framed or otherwise. Our professional tools along with our expertise make this process so much easier on you. At this session we help you choose appropriate presentation such as framing, or canvas, or album, etc. Payment is due at this time, in full, with the retainer fee credit factored in.
Hang tight, this part may take a little bit of time depending on the order, but generally speaking 3-4 weeks is average time.
We always have your products delivered to us first, for our final approval and stamp of joy. We will arrange pick up times or deliver to you when possible.
And finally...now you enjoy...for years and years to come. It will all be worth it!
