Before You Book, Your Session here are some FAQ’s
Is the session retainer refundable?
Only Due to weather. Once we get your session retainer that spot is held for you. Our schedules are set and we have to turn away anyone else that wants that spot. If you are unable to make it to your appointment we can try to fill it but it is not guaranteed. If the weather is to bad during your vacation your session retainer will be refunded. We will make every effort to get your photo session.
Are my photos edited?
All the photos in your gallery will have basic edits. We will whiten teeth if needed and brighten eyes. Your Photos are also white balanced and background enhanced to balance the photograph and give them some extra color and depth.
What do you get?
The answer is the best of Every Pose, except the out-takes. (eyes closed, out of focus, etc). There is no proofing gallery or backend high presure sales. Your photos will be emailed to you with a release. You can download your images and print them anywhere, anytime. CD’s can be provided upon request.
How long does it take?
We offer a sneak peak or preview the day after photos so you can see what they are going to look like before you go home. We will give you a good estimate of photo deliver time frame on photo day. During the summer month, it may take 2-4 weeks. Fall, Spring, and Winter months, you can expect your photos to be emailed within a week.
Can I get more edits?
Yes! We will keep your photos for 6 months. During this time you can decide if there is one or more that are very important to you. If there is going to be a big canvas above your fireplace, you may want to have more edits. This is no problem. There is a $20 per photo charge for this service. The available extra edits are:
remove extra items in the background (people, signs, trash cans, litter, etc)
remove stray hairs
crows feet, laugh lines, forehead wrinkles
All of these are included in your $20 payment per photo.
Our most used photo locations are the Gulf State Parks and city beaches in Gulf Shores. If you choose to have your photographer meet you outside the city limits of Orange Beach or Gulf Shores, there is a $25 travel fee. (Fort Morgan, West Beach, and Perdido Key)
Can we Tip our Photographer?
Tips are appreciated, but not expected. Your photos are prepaid, but if you feel that your photographer did an exceptional job, you are certainly welcome to tip in cash or check at your session.
