KIND WORDS

We've got answers

GOT QUESTIONS?

Q. Do I get to choose my photos? 

After your photoshoot, we sort through the photos, edit all the good ones & upload them to an online gallery. You can choose your favourites to download, and will have the opportunity to purchase more photos (than included in your photoshoot package) if you desire.

Q. What happens if it rains? 

If it's raining, we can still go ahead with the shoot. Some of our favourite photoshoots have happened in the rain! However, we give the option of moving your shoot to another time OR changing your location to a perfect wet-weather spot!

Q. What's your cancellation policy?

At booking, you are charged a 20% non-refundable deposit to lock in your slot. The remainder of your payment will be processed 2 weeks before your photoshoot. If you cancel before the 2 weeks, you will not be charged. If you cancel after, you will receive a 50% refund of the total cost. You have the option to either cancel your photoshoot or rebook for a later time, with no additional charge. 

Q. Will you photoshop us?

 Nope. Our goal with every photoshoot is to capture real, authentic moments. We're not about making people look fake or not true to themselves. If that's what you're looking for, then we're probably not the best photographers for you. We seek to capture the real, genuine moments, the imperfectly beautiful & beyond precious memories that we believe you will want to remember in the future! That being said, if there's a pimple or something that is temporary and would go away in a couple of weeks we are happy to fix this in post production.
