Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

Portraits

What are your rates?

Rates vary based on the number of images included in your selected package, equipment needed, and travel expenses if any.    Pricing starts at $350 for family sessions.  To see all portrait package pricing click on the Investment tab up top.

How long is a portrait session?

Portrait sessions typically take less than an hour. 

Do I get to see all the images from the session?

After your photo session, the editing process begins.  You will see a culled selection of images that have been chosen to go into your proof gallery based on best lighting, sharpness, facial expressions, blinking, eye contact with the camera, etc...This is usually a two week period, but can take less in some cases.

When will I get my images?

You will receive your final digital images no more than 2 weeks from the time you make your image selections.  They will be emailed as a link to the email address on file.  From there, you can download your images with the password you are given.

Do you include retouching?  Ya know...can you get rid of all my wrinkles?

Basic retouching is included only for sessions including one or two people, for example, senior sessions, headshot sessions, and couple sessions.  However, I want you to look like yourself, so retouching will be kept to a minimum of evening skin tone, removing shine and/or prominent skin blemishes.  I do not alter facial features or bodies.  Extensive retouching is reserved for certain beauty, fashion and boudoir sessions.

                                                         

Weddings

What is your pricing?

Wedding coverage starts at $450 for a minimum of 2 hours.  Each additional hour is just $125 per hour.  We have special rates for couples who also book their engagement sessions with us!

What is included in your wedding packages?

All weddings include an online, password - protected photo gallery and print release.  The number of images varies based on the length of photography coverage.

Can you make me look skinny and get rid of all my wrinkles?

Any extensive retouching is reserved for modeling or boudoir sessions.  I want to celebrate the way you look on your wedding day, not completely alter it.  Any prominent skin blemishes will be removed, but I don't play around on Photoshop too much...it's just not my style when it comes to weddings or portraits.

What classifies as an intimate wedding?

Generally, an intimate wedding has a small guest list of around 40 people or less and can be covered in 4 hours or less.  Typically an intimate wedding does not include a long reception, but sometimes it can.  I am also available for elopements, engagement sessions, and vow renewals.  I do not cover large weddings.

Do you do gay weddings?

Yes I do and yes I have.

Do you offer wedding albums?

We would be honored to create a beautiful, premium quality album for you!  Prices vary based on book size, cover type and number of pages desired and start around $200.
