Photography Booking Questions

What is included in my photography booking?

All photography bookings include a free password protected client gallery with 3 variations of edited photos and a video gallery if you've requested 4k video services in addition to your photography booking. Specific inclusions are listed in each photo booking description. The variations of edited photos included with your photography service booking are 1. Light Editing which is basic editing with no in depth editing or cropping 2. Retouched which involves more in depth editing such as blemish removals, object removals, spot lighting adjustments (IE face brightening or adding shadows where needed), digital makeup application by request, and crop adjusments; and 3. Artistic Edits in which I take a few photos of the favorited selections and/or any images I artistically take for the purpose of these specific edits and edit them in a very dramatically artistic way. These are all in separate galleries within your gallery so you can view the different edits and select from each gallery. Photography booking services also includes the convenience of ordering prints and gift items right from your gallery once editing is finished, as well as digital downloads for a fee if you are not ordering prints. If you elect to order prints from me, you will receive a free disk of the FINISHED edited photos you selected. I do not send you unedited works. All images are bound by the copyright agreement in your booking request and contracts that are physically signed (meaning you cannot change the finished image, remove watermarks, change the crop, add filters etc) You're free to share and keep the digital images you pay for or receive for free with ordered prints.

How long will it take for my photos to be done?

It takes up to a week (7 business days) for your photos to be fully edited in all 3 editing sets (light, retouched, and artistic). Once they are finished, you will be able to order from your gallery and download low resolution previews as well as share images directly from your gallery. I ask clients to be patient as I do a lot more than the average photographer and it does take time to edit photos. I will contact you throughout the editing process to ensure you're happy with the images.

Will my images be in a public gallery?

As an artist and copyright owner to the images I take, I have every legal right to display any image in a public portfolio on my website and in any marketing materials, etc I may use to show potential clients examples of my work. I do NOT place images of minors in any public gallery or materials without parental consent. Your images are not placed for sale in my art store. This said, I do respect my clients and will work with you if you don't want a specific image in my public galleries. Additionally, Galleries on my website are right click protected and viewers cannot download anything I place in these galleries for your protection. To further eliminate any outside use of any images I take, I do not upload directly to social media feeds, if I share to one of these feeds it is directly from my website which allows the image to be displayed but when clicked on it opens up in the gallery and cannot be downloaded.

Can I use afterpay to pay for services?

Yes. Afterpay is available as an option to pre-pay for your services. It cannot be used to order prints or art prints from any of my art store available prints.

Do you offer digital backdrops?

Yes. I can absolutely remove any background and place a portrait backdrop. If you'd like a backdrop for a headshot, etc please let me know prior to editing so I can prep your images for these backdrops and include a gallery of backdrops to select from.
