How do I choose a photographer?
Match your style with their samples of work! It is much easier to relax and enjoy your session then to be the creative director! Click here to see our Girls, Guys, and Sports Gallery!
What makes one photographer more or less than another?
Education is an ever evolving production and expensive! Overhead expenses will also vary...we offer accessories, props, several background choices on rainy days, and our storage of files is commercial grade! So many things go into making a single 8 x 10 portrait...it's not just ONE picture!
Do you retouch your photos?
Yes! I add my style of exposure and color filters before you even see your photos! I usually narrow choices to ½ of what was taken to you miss the bloopers. Photos you choose to print get extensive retouching, blemishes, braces, teeth whitening, eyes brightened.
How long does it take to get my photos back?
Give us 4 weeks! That is worst case scenario....but it also depends on how much design style work you are ordering. Tell us your deadlines when you order, we need time to get approval and to be able make changes before ordering!
Do you make open house announcements?
Yes! We also can design Save The Dates and even wedding invitations! Each is customized to your colors and photos you choose to go on it!
Can I buy the digitals and make my own prints?
Yes you can! BUT.... Are you a "do it yourself" type person? Statistics tell us most flash drives never get printed. It's like buying yarn and never making the hat. We are meant to be a full service photographer. We have access to high quality canvases, metals, and UV protected standard wall portraits for a minimal price. If you spend $1,000 or more with us we always include the digital copies of what you have purchased as a back up of the files in case of damage. Please keep those files in a fireproof safe or separate location!
What is your training?
I was trained at Grand Rapids Community College, learned photoshop through Great Lakes Institute for Photographers, and lighting and marketing through several professional photographer conferences throughout the nation!
What equipment is in your bag?
I am a Nikon girl! Always have been! Love my prime 50 1.8 Nikon lens....always my go to lend!
Do you accept credit cards or payment plans?
We accept all cards and are very willing to work out a payment plan to accommodate your vision!
