Do you have a question? Your question may have already been answered below
Do I get to pick which photos I want? Yes. You will receive an online gallery where each photo will still have my logo and it'll be protected against downloading. With this online gallery, you will be able to pick your "favorites" on the photos you would like from your session. Picking favorites allows me to know which images it is you are wanting. Now if you see more photos that you like and have went over your photo amount allowed in your package, you can purchase extra images for $5 per photo. Once photos have been picked, you will then receive your online gallery allowing you to download your images (no logo included).
What does an "Online Gallery" mean? An online gallery is a way for you to view all of your photos from your session. It's easier this way so you can easily download your images straight to your desktop and save your photos. With my online gallery site I use, you will receive your online gallery via email and you will be provided with a 4 digit pin to download all of the photos you have picked from your session. Online Galleries are also great because you can share them with your family & friends, however, the site I use for your photos protects your images. This means, when you share your gallery with someone , in order for them to save your photos or the photos they want, they MUST have the 4 digit pin you are provided with to obtain access to download that specific photo. It protects you and your images!
If it rains the day of my session can I receive a refund or partial payment? No, you can not. When booking with Amarie J. Photography, you are told she is an all natural light photographer which means all sessions are done outdoors. I do not own a studio so if rain caused a reschedule in session, this is something client should be aware of and understand things like this can happen when working with outdoor sessions. If weather shows a 40% or higher chance of rain that day, it's possible we would have to reschedule. I never want to shoot when grounds are soaked and to cause anyone to get sick and to also put my expensive camera gear at risk. I want to guarantee every client receives the BEST images possible! Also when making your non refundable payment at time of booking, you are aware this deposit is non refundable which means I can not refund you and it also states this in your invoice under "terms and conditions" and also on the contract you will complete with Amarie J. Photography.
Can I bring props with me to my session? Absolutely! I always recommend bringing any props you want to use.
Do I get an outfit change? You are only allowed an outfit change if it is included in your package. Outfit changes require more session time. During our session, can I do some poses I have in mind? Of course! I love to see what poses clients want to do. Usually clients will bring pose ideas they want (saved on a Pinterest board) and let me take a look to make sure we capture what it is you are wanting.
I am not great with posing, do you help clients pose? Yes, I sure do. If you have no poses in mind and are not sure how to pose, I am there to help you with posing you for the perfect shot.
When can we see a photo from our session? A sneak peek will be posted on my Facebook Photography page (with the permission of the client) within 2-4 days after your session. Sneak peek can be emailed to you if wanting to keep photo private. When can I expect my online gallery? It is a two week time frame for me to complete your online gallery. This is two weeks from when your session was shot. You will receive your online gallery via email.
Are some of your images in Black & White? This is something not most clients want done to their images so upon my clients request, I do place the photos you have selected in Black & White. You can select which photos you want placed in B&W at the time of selecting your favorite images. You will discuss that with me at that time.
Am I able to share my photos with family & friends? Absolutely. Once you receive your online gallery, you can just send the link to whoever you want. However, if a family member is wanting to download the gallery, you will have to provide them with the pin that is given to you in your email. Without that pin, they can not download any of the images that were taken during your session.
Will I be allowed to go any where to print my photos? Yes. As long as you take the Copyright Release Form I mail to you, you are showing the workers you have permission to print those images that were taken by me. Without that form, they will not allow you to print your photos because they need to see you are allowed to do so. Please make sure you take the form with you if you are printing in the store.
Are all of the photos sized to blow up and make prints into canvas prints? Yes, they are. All images that are sent to you are in high resolution. They are already sized to blow up or make your prints as a canvas.
Will your logo be on the photos that are sent to me? No. The only time my logo is on your photo is when you are viewing your sneak peek or when it is published on my blog. This protects my images from strangers taking it and cropping/editing my logo out of my photo and using it for their own use.
Your website states you are an all natural light outdoor photographer. Does this mean you don't shoot weddings that are held indoors? No. This means I shoot all regular sessions outdoors letting people know I do not own a studio. For weddings I can most certainly capture indoor images from the ceremony to the reception. I have the proper equipment for that.
