What are your rates for other sessions?

Portrait sessions start at $250. We shoot a variety of portrait sessions which include engagement, family, and senior sessions. We also shoot creative and professional photos for businesses and entrepreneurs. Contact us for detailed information about our packages.

Do you have any limits on the number of photos taken during a session and do you edit everything?
There is never a limit on how many photos are taken at a session. When going through the editing process, any photos deemed poor quality by the photographer will be deleted, and the rest edited with basic processing (ie, color-correct, mild retouching, etc). Any extra editing that becomes more involved (such as in depth air-brushing and removing cars and houses, etc) will come with an extra fee.

Where will you travel?
We will travel most anywhere! Most of our business occurs in North Carolina, but we are up for a flight to Europe, Hawaii, Iceland, or any destination you may have in mind! Just this 2017/2018 season has brought Melissa Cattani Photography to Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Texas, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Virginia, Caribbean islands, the Netherlands, Italy, Hawaii, and more!

How do we book & pay?
In order to confirm a date, you will receive a custom contract and payment portal online where you can make a payment for the non-refundable retainer fee via credit card or Paypal. You can pay by check if you prefer, but the check must be processed before your date is considered held. We also offer payment plans.

How much is the non-refundable retainer fee and why is it required for booking?
This fee allows us to close the date and time that you want for your session in our calendar, so that no other session is booked during that time. It is 25% for weddings and 50% for other sessions.

How many photos do we get?
Each session is different! We typically deliver between 25-50 images per hour of shooting time.

How will the photos be delivered?
Your images will be delivered via online gallery in the form of web resolution jpeg images.

Can my friends and family download the photos from your website?
Absolutely! The online gallery that you receive may then be shared with the rest of your family and friends!

What if we want to order Prints, gallery wraps or albums?
All orders will go through Melissa Cattani Photography to a professional photo lab. We personally design each Photo Album unique to your preferences!
