In order to get the session you prefer I suggest you book at least 2 weeks in advance. If you need to get in ASAP then just contact me about the schedule. I do try to accommodate everyone and you can always be put on my waiting list. As openings arise I contact people in the order they were placed on that list.
If for any reason you need to change a scheduled session, I require 72 hours notice, otherwise you forfeit your deposit.
Of course! There is no associated fee for shooting on location however trave fees may apply for locations outside of Denver, Colorado.
Rule #1: You have to love it! I don't want to shoot anything that you don't feel comfortable wearing. If you don’t feel good in it, you won’t shoot well while wearing it. Remember, be yourself because this is where you can get some of your own personal style into the shoot.
Rule #2: No logos unless it is your brand logo that you wish to showcase.
Other than those two rules, everything can work. I love textures and layers, however if it's not in the studio we can shoot it, so if you find yourself questioning whether or not something will work just bring it along. I also suggest having some fun with this, if you feel your wardrobe is missing a beat then go shopping and we'll keep the tags on, so you can return the items you don't want to keep after the shoot. Newer clothes generally photograph better.
Not at all! I find portraits come out best when you do your hair and makeup the way you normally would for a nice occasion. I do recommend everyone use a light moisturizer on your face in the morning before your scheduled shoot time and make sure your hair is clean and not greasy. Keep in mind that this is not the time to experiment! I do not offer hair and makeup services at this time but you are welcome to provide your own if you feel the need. Keep an eye out because I will have these services available coming soon.
Also for the guys who grow facial hair, if you want both a beard and a clean shaved look you can come in with a some growth and we'll shoot until we feel we've gotten it covered and then you can shave, so bring your razor, moisturizer etc.
All photoshoots include one hour of shoot time. I like to schedule photoshoots in blocks of 90 minutes to account for wardrobe and scene changes in between shooting.
The session fee of $850 is required to book a session. It is due at booking after you've chosen a shoot date and gotten it booked on my schedule. You can pay for prints and other add-ons all at the time of booking or decide afterwards what you will need, requiring a second invoice.
I accept cash and personal checks as well as Visa and Mastercard.
Within a week of your shoot you will receive a digital file with watermarked images. You let me know which images you would like to have edited and within two weeks of receiving word of your choices, I will digitally send a folder of your un-watermarked and edited images for download. Rush production is available on a case-by-case basis and will incur an extra fee. Print times are variable depending on the season but prints are generally delivered within two weeks of ordering. Any delays will be clearly communicated.
If you end up choosing me as your photographer then you are in agreement that it's your responsibility to convey to me anything that you feel needs improvement over the course of the session. I want nothing more than having you totally satisfied with the outcome and things are fairly easy to adjust during the session. However, once the session is over then it's your responsibility to work with the images that we decided to keep. I'm a big deleter and want your shoot saturated with amazing shots, so I have no problem deleting shots during the editing process in order to only keep the best of the best.
If for any reason something causes you to doubt the marketability of any part of your session and you would like to add another look or two, I charge a $75 fee for another hour of shooting on the same day and a $400 fee for another hour of shooting after your gallery has been delivered. Anything that you feel could be improved upon should've been discussed during your session in order to avoid having to come back for the additional hour, so I need to charge for my time for this service. This offer is only available for 30 days from your gallery delivery date.
