How do I book a shoot?
Reach out to me using my contact form. I also respond to DM's on instagram! All bookings will be made through Square Appointments (it's an easy to use service where you'll be able to choose the kind of shoot you want). After contacting me or booking directly through Square, you'll be required to electronically sign a contract. A non-refundable payment of 50% of the total value will be required at the time of booking.
Is there a contract?
Yes. Once your appointment has been booked, I will email you my contract for you to sign electronically and email back to me. An active email address is required. *Please read the contract thoroughly*
Is there a payment required upon booking?
Yes. When you book a shoot, i set that time aside for you; therefor, a non-refundable initial payment totaling 50% of the shoot is required at the time of booking. This initial payment reserves my time and is not a retainer fee or deposit. Once initial payment is made, the chosen date and time is reserved for only your shoot.
How do i make the initial payment for booking?
Your will be able to make your 50% initial payment through Square Appointments at the time of booking. Square appointments is an easy to use booking service with secured payment options. All you need to do is select the shoot you want and click book. At the time of booking, you'll be able to make your initial booking payment right then and there. yay!
If you need to cancel a shoot, your initial 50% non-refundable payment you made at the time of booking, will not be refunded. Although, if you reschedule, your non-refundable 50% payment will go towards the cost of the rescheduled shoot. You will only have one chance to reschedule in a 2 week time frame. Communication is important, so please keep me updated on your scheduling concerns as soon as you are aware of them!
When do I pay the remaining balance of shoot?
The rest of the payment for the shoot must be made the day of the shoot!
How do i pay the remaining balance of the shoot?
The remaining balance is to be paid on the day of the shoot. It will be made through my square magstripe card reader. It is a card reader insert, which i connect to my phone and the rest of the payment will be made through there. If you want more info on Square card reader go ahead and click here.
How long does it take you to edit photos?
I do not have a set time how long it takes me to edit photos. Depending on the type of shoot it can take up to 2 weeks. No more than 2 weeks though(usually. Although if there are any changes on the time, i'll be sure to inform you)! For example: if we're doing a shoot where you'll only be receiving 15 photos, then it'll take me less than a week. If we're doing a shoot where you'll be receiving 50 photos, that'll take more time; closer to the 2 week-ish range. If there is a time crunch, please be sure to let me know!
How will the photos be delivered?
You will receive your photo files through WeTransfer, which is an emailing service. I will send you an email through them with all your images. In the email there will be a link, just click it and you'll be able to see all your files! A reminder: The link does expire after 7 days, so please be sure to back up your images to a laptop, computer, phone, cloud, etc!
I forgot to save/backup my photos and now the link expired! Help!
If this were to happen to you, don't worry, i back up your images in case something like this were to happen! BUT PLEASE DON'T LET THAT BE An excuse TO FORGET JUST BECAUSE YOU KNOW "I also have them saved". I know sometimes we just get caught up in life, that we can forget, and that's okay. Just send me an email with your name and the kind of session you had (ex:family, kids, couple, anniversary, etc) I'll get them to you as soon as i can, but please, save save save your images and back them up as soon as they're sent!!!
Can you provide the RAW, unedited files?
Unfortunately i cannot, i spent hours carefully editing each of my photographs and unedited files simply do not represent my brand. I put my own personal style into the editing of every image and i stand behind the creative decisions i choose to make!
