WHAT'S IT LIKE SHOOTING WITH YOU? WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
I am a very bubbly, chatty person. I like to make every session as fun and comfortable as possible. I've noticed that the more I talk with people while working together it helps them to loosen up and be more themselves, which means more natural photos! Occasionally, I will give direction but I prefer to capture candids over posed shots.
WILL YOU SHOOT MY IDEA?
Of course! I love collaborating! Send me an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss your vision!
WHAT IS HIGHLIGHT?
A "Highlight" is a feature on my blog, here on the website. (Features in my albums and social media are also included if you purchase a package.) I enjoy working with local artists and small businesses who have a vision and serve for a great cause. I'm all about helping others and giving them the credit where it's deserved and share their story with people who might not know about them yet! If you're interested in collaborating please send me an email to: email@example.com and tell me a little bit about yourself or your brand.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECIEVE MY PHOTOS? I WANT THEM NOW!
And I want to give you your photos as soon as possible! Please keep in mind that not only do I work a full-time job on top of doing photography, but there are potentially clients ahead of you and photos are taken care of on a first come first served basis. All PAID work has priority (this does not include anyone interested in purchasing photos from a Test Shoot.) Please allow up to six weeks for your photos to be returned to you.
CAN I GET ALL OF THE PHOTOS? EVEN IF THEY'RE NOT EDITED.
The short and simple answer is no. Imagine seeing the Mona Lisa before completion? Photos are the same as any other art form and take time and patience to work with. Any photos I don't give to you are because there was something wrong with it (someone was blinking, bad facial expression, etc.) It's not a true and finished representation of my work.
CAN I GET THE COPYRIGHT TO THE IMAGES?
Copyright means that I am the creator of the images and I own the copyright. Selling or obtaining "the copyright" is not possible. That being said you will be given a Print Release to print and share your images as much as you like!
CAN I EDIT OR FILTER MY PHOTOS?
Unless I give you written permission (which is unlikely) you are not allowed to alter the photos in any way. This includes Instagram filters! Any editing made to the photo without my permission is subject to a $50 fee per photo. I put a lot of time and effort into editing your photos and you wouldn't have hired me if you didn't like my work. Altering my images is disrespectful and a false representation of my work.
HOW FAR ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL AND IS IT FREE?
I am willing to travel anywhere in the continental United States. Unfortunately, travel is not free. Travel fees will be determined on the location you want to shoot and your package. There is a travel fee for anywhere 20 miles outside of Charleston, SC.
IF WE SHOOT SOMEWHERE THAT REQUIRES A TICKET ENTRY WHO IS RESPONSIBLE TO PAY THE FEE?
You are responsible for any entry fees. (Example: Middle Place, Magnolia Plantation, Boone Hall, etc.)
HOW DO I PAY FOR MY SESSION?
I accept cash, check, or credit card payments through Venmo or PayPal. All shoots require a non-refundable retainer fee (half of the session fee) the same day of booking. The remainder is due the day of your shoot.
