Sooo...how does this work?
Hi there! I'm so glad you're here, and considering me as your photographer! Here, I'll go over some of the most frequently asked questions so you know exactly what to expect out of your experience.
What's the Difference between a half session and a full session?
Time (a half session is about 30 minutes, a full session is 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes), the amount of photos (simply put, more time, more photos), and variety (a full session includes an outfit change if you would like one, and allows for more variety in location).
Do i get digital copies of my pictures?
Yes. All my photos are delivered as High Res JPGs. These are sufficient for all online and social media uses, and they are good for prints up to 8x10. If you would like prints larger than 8x10, you will either need to purchase the Full Res JPGs on a USB drive, or order product through my shop.
How many photos do you deliver?
I don't have a set number. I deliver every photo that could be considered precious to you. The only photos I eliminate are ones that you would eliminate yourself, such as people with closed eyes, test shots, duplicates, etc. The minimum would be 20 photos per hour of shooting.
DO you edit out acne or blemishes?
No. Usually I will edit out acne on a select few of my favorites, but they are not specifically included in your purchase. If you would like additional editing done, it is $5 per photo. I do not usually edit out moles or birthmarks unless specifically requested.
How are client galleries delivered to me?
I deliver all your pictures as High Res JPGs through an online gallery. You will receive a link so you can access your photos from anywhere. Your gallery is only accessible through that link. From there, you can download as many photos as you like onto your devices.
How do I share my photos with family and friends?
The link you receive is the same link you can share with family and friends. Anyone who has the link can share the gallery. There is also a "share" button on the homepage of you gallery, as well as on each individual photo. As a cool bonus, people can like or comment on your photos as well so you can see everyone talking about how great you look!
Can I order prints through you?
Absolutely! In fact, I highly recommend it. Prints ordered through me can have an even higher picture resolution than the ones I'm able to deliver in your online gallery. Head over to my shop for instructions. I also have recommendations for some great local print shops if you are wanting to print them yourself.
How long do I have to save my photos from my gallery?
Forever! Unlike a lot of photographers, I don't have a time limit on how long your photos are available. All of my photos are backed up in multiple places, so they never get lost or deleted. You're able to access them as much as you want for as long as you want. If you ever lose the link to your photos, just let me know and I can send you a new one.
My budget is a little tight right now...
I completely understand, and I've been there too! I only require 50% at the time of booking to reserve your date, and the other 50% is due a week before your session or event. This gives you time in between to budget accordingly, and leaves the week of your event free from any stress. If you are still concerned, have a chat with me and we may be able to set up a payment plan to fit your needs.
What do i wear?
Never fear. No matter what your session is, I have a style guide that I send out to each of my clients at the time of booking. It has a lot of suggestions for certain styles that look great on camera for both guys and girls. It covers everything from hair and makeup to shoes. But the most important thing is to wear is something that you feel comfortable and confident in!
Where should we go to take pictures?
I usually will have a couple of places in mind that I will suggest, depending on what I think will fit the look of your session. If you're not feeling any of my suggestions, I have compiled all the info you need for every place I've ever shot at in Utah County on my locations page. Also, don't be afraid to think outside the box! If you know of a gorgeous place that might work let me know and we can definitely check it out.
Do I need to come with posing ideas?
Nope! I've got you covered! I come prepared with a lot of cute ideas, and I always study posing before each session. I'll work with your best angles to get flattering pictures that you love yourself in.
How long does it take to get pictures back?
One week for a sneak peek (3-5 images), three weeks for a full gallery. Rush is available for special situations, just be sure you let me know about them.
This all sounds great! What do I do now?
Yay! Just head on over to my contact page and shoot me a message! Or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And of course you're always free to reach me at my cell (texting or calling are both fine with me!) at (801)410-0660. Let's do this!
