Creation Fee and Scheduling
The creation fee for photo shoots is $100/hr and our minimum photo shoot is 2 hours. This creation fee pays for us to plan your photo shoot, photograph you, edit and prepare your preview images. The fee is not applied towards the purchase of any products. A 50% deposit is due when we commit to your photo shoot date on our schedule. The remaining balance is due on or before the scheduled shoot day. For photo shoots 4 hours or longer, we may also ask for an advance payment towards an album or other product where the variety of images we create will go to good use.
Placing Your Order
A week or two after your photo shoot we meet with you again to show you your pictures, help you pick your favorites and place your order. We present you with at least 15 or so pictures, along with our suggestions, and help you to quickly edit down to a manageable number for the products you are interested in. We provide a high-touch, consultative approach to help you select the best products, sizes and options to suit your needs and get the best value for your money. When we are done, we provide you with a detailed report of everything you ordered including thumbnail images, sizes, and options. Payment for your order is due in full at the time it is placed. Short term payment plans are also available. Ordering appointments are typically conducted at your home or an agreed upon location.
Most clients preview their images and place their order during their ordering appointment without need of proofing. If you wish to preview your images ahead of your appointment, we are glad to publish them to our preview website a few days before we meet.
Pickup and Delivery
Print orders are usually completed in 2-3 weeks. Orders including albums or sports composites can take 4-5 weeks.
Your photo shoot date can be rescheduled at no cost with at least 72 hours notice. While this is very rare, creation fees may be forfeited for missed photo shoots or photo shoots rescheduled with less than 72 hours notice. Often our clients avoid forfeiting their creation fees if we are able to fill their forfeited photo shoot with another client and/or the client can fill another opening on short notice.
Availability and Waiting List
We typically schedule only one photo shoot per day and are usually booked 2-4 weeks in advance. Clients who prefer to have a photo shoot earlier than they were able to schedule can request to be added to our waiting list for an earlier appointment.
Prints, Products, Packages and Pricing
We are a full service studio offering photographic prints, wall decor, coffee table books, announcements and invitations, custom framing and one-of-a-kind art prints. Most clients purchase a wall-sized print, several gift-sized prints, wallets and storyboard or coffee table book with their favorite images. Prints are sold a la carte and in Collections. Rather than offer fixed packages, we offer discounted pricing for bundling print collections and signature products like Coffee Table Books, Storyboards and Sports Composites.
Pricing for our prints, products, collections and packages are available upon request.
