Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Time Per Session?

Every standard session includes approximately an hour of our time as well as a single location. Location changes are available for $50-per-change.

For weddings, the All Day package includes up to 8 hours on the day of the wedding, as well as an hour the day before for the rehearsal. The Ceremony and Reception package each include 4 hours.

Other events are charged per hour. However, if an event is planned to take an entire day, or span multiple days, additional fees may be involved.

How Many Photos Do I Get?

You get every hand-picked photo from your session, fully edited and ready to share, print, enlarge, or display. For example, a standard family session usually produces 20 - 40 photos.

For weddings and other events, you can expect approximately 30 - 50 photos per hour.

Do I get every pose you take?

We try our best to get at least one photo out of every posing, but there are times we may feel that it just didn't work for various reasons.

When Will I Get My Photos?

On average, we try to deliver your photos to you within two to three weeks from your shoot. We'll also post a few pictures to our site and Facebook as a "sneak peek". However, depending on our schedule, this may vary. We'll always try to let you know if there will be a delay.

For weddings and other events, we try to finish them within a month from your event date.

What's included in your wedding or event packages?

Weddings and events are handled a bit differently than our standard sessions.

Events

Being that we charge hourly, we will be there from the beginning time you specify to the length of the service you purchased. If additional time is needed (e.g. event runs over), we can continue at our regular hourly rate assuming we have the time in our schedule to continue doing so. If the event runs under, no refunds will be made as we've carved time out of our schedule to accomodate.

The expected number of photos varies, but we give the general guidelines of 30 - 50 photos per hour.

Weddings

All Day: includes 6 to 8 hours (max) of our time. We generally try to arrive an hour before the ceremony to capture prep pictures, and stay up to a few hours during the reception.

Ceremony-Only: includes up to 4 hours of our time. This includes an hour before the ceremony for prep photos, the ceremony, and time after to take group and family photos.

Reception-Only: includes up to 4 hours of our time. We will arrive at the given time to capture you and your party walking into the reception area, and up to four hours after that to capture candids of the guests and all of your special events such as garter/bouquet toss, first dances, etc.

The expected number of photos delivered is similar to event expectation, 30 - 50 per hour during candid/action periods. Staged photos (e.g. group and family photos) can expect similar results as our standard sessions.

Weddings get an added bonus: a free consultation period. We'll sit down with you for an hour to help you plan the flow of your wedding: order of events, time of events, photo location suggestions, etc. We have many weddings under our belts, and have lots of guidance to give you.

How Will I Receive My Photos?

You will also have access to all of your photo proofs in an online gallery hosted on this site. The gallery will only be accessible from the direct link that we give you. However, you can still share this gallery with friends, family, or even on your Facebook timeline.

If you'd like to download your photos to save to your computer (or other media, such as a flash drive or disc), we offer a full gallery download for a small fee. You can purchase this right from your gallery using the "Buy" button.

Where Can I Get Prints?

Included in your online gallery is access to an online shopping cart. You, or your family and friends, can order professional quality prints right from your gallery!

Our print prices are extremely competitive with other local photographers, and even some local photo labs. We have our print pricing below for your convenience. 

When Is Payment Due?

A $100 (or the full session fee, if less than $100) non-refundable deposit is required in order to hold your session or event date; weddings require a $200 non-refundable deposit. The rest of the payment is required before you receive final access to your photos.

For more information, please contact us.

Do You Charge Sales Tax?

Sales tax is charged on all sessions booked and shot in the State of Michigan. Sales tax is incorporated into the pricing you see on the above pricing sheet, but will be broken out if you request a copy of your invoice.

Print and download prices do not include sales tax and will be applied on checkout to orders being purchased and shipped in the State of Michigan.

1 Lustre is a cross between glossy and matte; you get the brilliant colors of a glossy print but the fingerprint resistance of matte. We highly recommend this print option.
