WILL YOU HELP US FIND A LOCATION?
Not only do I have a very thorough location guide, but I am also often out exploring new unique spots. So yes, I can certainly help you find the perfect location for your elopement or intimate wedding as long as the total headcount (including the couple and officiant) does not exceed twelve.
While I’m confident that this crisis will eventually pass, it might be a while before we can resume business as usual. For that reason, I am committed to following the recommendations from our health authorities to continue to offer you the best services possible while remaining safe.
All my equipment is thoroughly cleaned in between sessions. I and any assistants that might accompany me will wear face coverings and will regularly sanitize our hands. I limit myself to a maximum of three clients per week and I am not currently taking bookings for groups larger than 15 people.
During the session I will:
- Maintain 6ft + distance from all clients most of the time unless I need to adjust something in your frame, in which case, I would sanitize my hand beforehand.
- I will use mostly verbal prompts for posing vs. close contact posing.
- All clients are required to have face coverings available in the event that they are needed.
- if you are not attaining to any social distancing guidelines, I cannot be your photographer.
CAN WE ORDER PRINTS?
YES! And while I do not impose it, I will strongly encourage it. The lab I use is of the highest quality standards and at the same time, I constantly check and calibrate my monitor settings to ensure that the printing outcome is as accurate as possible, therefore if any of your prints don’t turn out perfectly, I can reprint them for you. If you decide to print elsewhere, that is totally ok, but keep in mind I would not be able to fix the outcome if that’s the case.
DO YOU HAVE PERMITS?
YES! Most locations require some sort of permit, you’d be surprised! I would never shoot at a location where I am not aware of their permitting as there would be a small chance that we’d be asked to leave without completing the ongoing session and for that reason, you can be certain that would NEVER be the case with me.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
ABSOLUTELY! No loose ends left untied 😉
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH MY SESSION?
It depends on the type of session and the collection you select, but ALL collections include:
Session plans, it is paramount that we discuss in detail what your expectations are and for me to get to know you to come up with the right plan JUST for you. During our video chat or phone call, we’ll go over clothing recommendations, timing, how to prepare, what to expect, etc.
Location guide, I will help you find the best scenic location for your elopement or family adventure. While I already have a very thorough location guide available to all of my clients, I am often running out on scoping trips trying to find unique new spots.
Photoshoot time, 45 min – 8 hours depending on your needs.
Online gallery, a password protected online gallery that will allow you to select your favorites and print once you receive the edited images.
DO YOU DESIGN WEDDING ALBUMS?
Certainly! I will share the pricing guide for my albums upon request. Discounts are also available for those clients that want to purchase an album(s) along with their package.
CAN WE HAVE THE RAW OR UNEDITED FILES?
It is not possible. Raw files are the canvas to the images I create, I manipulate these files with professional software to be able to deliver images of the same quality that you see throughout my portfolio.
Likewise, unedited images are not available, if you feel you’d like to get more photos from your session, you will have the option to purchase additional fully edited images.
WHAT DO YOU EDIT IN EVERY PHOTO?
After you submit your favorite photos from your proof gallery (if applicable), I will carefully edit them to be consistent with the quality of my work as shown in my portfolio.
Editing covers the following:
- Mild skin imperfections
- Color correction
- Teeth whitening
- Lightening up of subjects
- Highlights manipulation to enhance the image and skies when possible
- Double chins
- Some fly away hairs
NOTE: My regular editing process does NOT include full retouching with Photoshop, this would involve altering the basic structure of the image as taken such as: slimming, composites, tattoo removal, all fly away hairs, photoshopping of sunsets in the background (when the weather does not cooperate), removal of logos, head swapping, full wrinkle elimination, etc.
Full retouching with Photoshop is available for an additional fee of $35 per image. Discounts are available for bulk orders.
For any more specific requests, please get in touch with me.
WHAT IS *NOT* INCLUDED WITH MY SESSION?
- Most of my work as a photographer lays on editing, for that reason Raw and unedited images are never shared with clients.
- Cakes and decorations for cake smashes.
- Entrance and parking fees
- Hair or makeup
WHAT DOES FULL RETOUCHING COVER?
Fully retouched images are a step above edited images and are normally requested at my client’s discretion. The work put into each fully retouched photo can vary anywhere between 30-60 min. Some examples of full retouching services are:
- Tattoo Removal.
- Back, arm, and side fat rolls.
- Overall slimming.
- Hair covering a large part of the face.
- Photoshopped skies.
- Composites and head swapping (merge two different images into one).
- Removal of logos or distracting elements in clothing.
- Removal of major objects or crowds in the background.
- Specific requests made by the client that are not including in my regular editing process.
Full retouching is available for $35 per image, I also offer full retouching bundle package for $200 per every 10 photos.
