What do I get from my portrait session? Prints, files, CD?

Our most popular portrait sessions come with (5) 5x7 prints and we share a few favorites for your session on social media.  We offer a large variety of art for your home, from framed portraits to canvas art.  You will love our easy ordering sessions!

Can you just give me all the pictures you took?

Your photos are very important to us, so we only choose the best to edit and share with you.  Every photograph is hand-selected and edited carefully to produce the finest look, a portrait that you will cherish forever.  For that reason, we do not give unedited files. 

When will I get to see my photos?

Portrait sessions are usually ready for viewing in 2-3 weeks.  Weddings and events are usually ready for viewing in 4-6 weeks. 

Do you have props?

Let us know your style and the look you are going for and we can include props.  We work with several rental companies to provide props for certain sessions and for weddings.  Just let us know what you would like and we will do our best to get it!

What's the best time of day to book  a session?

About an hour before sunset or an hour after sunrise is really the best for light, but any time of day will work for your session or event.  Lighting is a major factor in beautiful photos and we have lots of experience in getting the right posing and backgrounds to use the most lovely lighting.

"Trying to get 8 people to all look good in a picture is an almost impossible challenge, but ours turned out perfect. Just enough quirkiness from the boys to show their personalities. The individual pictures are beautiful, and they even captured a few unplanned shots that we absolutely love. I would highly recommend this awesome couple, Stuart and Marisa..." - E. F.

What should I wear?!?

Ok, we get this question a lot!  First, please be comfortable.  If you are confident and comfortable in what you are wearing, that helps you feel relaxed and amazing.  We recommend light colors like white or ivory, neutrals with a pop of color.  Everyone in the family doesn't have to be matchy, but keeping to neutrals with an accent color is a great way to look coordinated.
