How do I book a portrait session with you?
Booking us for your portrait session is very simple. First we would like to ensure that our photographic style is what you are looking for by asking you to look at the portrait gallery where you will see sample images of our portfolio. We have been known to deliver beautiful and timeless photography; however, we do understand that not every couple will subscribe to our vision, values and philosophy.
If the answer is yes and you are interested in booking with us, please complete the contact form, with as much details as possible in order that we can check availability of the date for you.
After that we would then like to meet with you at your home (or our office) if possible, to discuss fully, the portrait session in more detail and answer any questions you might still have as well as to see the several locations you might have for the session.
At this meeting, you will be able to see firsthand the beautiful and timeless quality of portrait books and prints we provide as well as discuss all the products, prices and extras we have to offer, so that you can make a more informed decision about which products will suit your needs.
Finally, after we are both satisfied with what was agreed, it is just a question of signing and completing the booking deposit which will lock the date of your portrait session on our calendar.
You look as though you are going to be expensive, will I be able to afford you?
As you may have discovered, there are many different ways that photographers choose to price portrait photography and so that there are no misunderstandings, we would like to be totally transparent about what you are investing in. The most important thing that you are investing in is actually our time and expertise – it takes a lot of effort and skill to make beautiful images, both during the capture and afterwards in post-production.
There are two options available to you. You can choose to either pick individual items on an ‘a la carte’ basis to get the exact package that is right for you, or, you can choose one of our three collection packages - which have been created based on our experience of what people want from their portrait photography and to give you the greatest return on your investment.
We don’t display pricing on-line; however our pricing is very simple. Creation fees starts at $125.00 for individuals & family sessions and $150.00 for group sessions. For collections such as DVD Only, Portrait Book and Custom Wall Portrait Prints please inquire within.
This is not to make a secret of it but a way to make sure our clients book us because they believe and value our photography and not because of price alone. Full pricing will be given in person when we meet to discuss your portrait session in more detail.
Can we have Black & White Portraits as well as Color or both?
We love black and white photography. Because we believe that sometimes color can distract from the person(s) being photographed. By reducing an image to a juxtaposition of light and shade, texture and tone, the viewer can concentrate on the narrative of an image. As a note we always do some of the images in black & white to give you a choice of variety.
Are you insured?
Yes. We have both professional indemnity and public liability insurance. If anything were to go wrong no matter where we are doing photography, we as well as you, are well covered. You should not even consider employing a photographer that does not have proper insurance. We would be more than happy to show you documentation.
How far will you travel?
We cover portrait sessions just about anywhere in the state of Florida and beyond.
All travel expenses within 30 miles from Orlando are included. If outside the 30 mile radius a flat fee will be quoted and then added to the final cost. If we have to stay overnight, a flat fee will be quoted for all expenses (we will handle arrangements) and then added to the final cost.
How many images will I get?
You will receive all images from your session if you purchase the DVD or Portrait Book Collection, however a fixed number cannot be guaranteed. Mostly this will depend on the number of people in the session. You can however expect to have good amount of high quality, fully edited images to make a qualified selection
When can we see our book and images?
Images of the portrait session will be posted on your password security online gallery (password to be given beforehand) roughly 1 to 2 weeks after the portrait session day. The online store with the photos from the portrait session will be up for 60 days. Please note that proof books are not provided.
How long will it take for the portrait book to be delivered?
After selecting the images that we believe best reflect your portrait session, we will pre-design and send a layout of the book to you for approval, after approval is received from you, the album will be sent to be assembled. Usually the whole process after your approval takes 6 to 8 weeks to be completed and delivered.
Remember, the books we provide are the of the highest quality, hand bound portrait albums you can have in the world presently, therefore they might take longer than others but rest assure that the wait is definitely worth it.
How do we get our portrait book?
Usually, unless otherwise agreed by both parties, we will arrange for it to be delivered to you by courier or if possible, deliver the book in hand personally.
How long will you keep the portrait photographic files for?
All portrait photographic files are kept safe for one year, from your portrait session day. An option to purchase the photographic files either before or after the portrait session is available. So please enquire for more information.
Do you retain the copyright?
Yes we do because it is essential for our business. If you would like to know more about this subject please contact the studio directly to get your questions answered.
