There is never a limit on how many photos are taken at a session. We offer 3 basic packages with 6, 8, or 10 hours of coverage.

Where will you travel?
We will travel most anywhere, but most of our business occurs in North Carolina!

How do we book & pay?
In order to confirm a date, you will receive a custom payment portal online where you can sign the contract and make a payment for the non-refundable retainer fee via credit card. You can pay by check if you prefer. Also, we 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 30% 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.

Are all of our photos edited?
Yes! Every photo you receive will be edited in a similar style to what you see around this website!

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

Can my friends and family download and order the photos from your website?
Absolutely! The online gallery that you receive may then be shared with the rest of your family and friends! They can order as many photos as they'd like through the site!

What if we want to order a gallery wrap or canvas?
There will be different options in your online gallery that will allow you to do so.
