✨ How do I book a session?
There are two ways to book a session! First, you can send me a message with as many details as possible, outlining the type of session, location, and desired vibe. Second, if you already know what type of session you want, head over to the "Book a Session" page and choose one of the packages. All sessions are subject to photographer's approval (this helps to prevent overbookings). Once you send a message or book a session, I will get back to you within 24-48 hours. After you receive a confirmation from me, we will schedule a time to meet to go over your session (virtual or in-person).
✨ How far in advance should I book a session?
Some people have booked as far as two years in advance, while others book last minute. Please allow at least one week in advance for your session. However, if it is a last-minute, must-needed session, contact me and I will see what can be done to fit you into my schedule!
✨How long does it take to get my photos?
It depends on the time of the year. During the holiday season, I can have as many as 6 mini sessions in one day. My goal is to always get my clients their photos within a week or two. I post my editing queue on my Facebook page, so you can always check to see how many people are ahead of you. In my contracts, I guarantee a maximum of 90 days.
✨ How will I receive my photos?
Your photos will be delivered to you in a private online gallery via my website. From the gallery, you will be able to view, share, and download high resolution files. All galleries require a password so that it is secured. Only you and those you share the gallery with will have access to it.
✨ Am I allowed to print my photos or share them on social media?
Absolutely! 100% yes! There are no restrictions on print sizes and all watermarks will be removed. When sharing on social media, I just ask that you credit Studio R Photography somewhere to help spread the word about my studio.
✨ What type of equipment do you use?
I shoot with a Canon full frame mirrorless camera and an Olympus mirrorless camera. I have a variety of Canon, Tamron, and Sigma lenses as well.
✨ How much editing / retouching do you do?
All photos are edited for color, contrast, style, and exposure. For some photos, a light filter will be applied to add to the vibe of the picture. Heavy facial retouching, wrinkle removal, or body reshaping are not applied to the photos.
✨ Do you instruct for posing?
Most of us aren't models and it is sometimes hard to find the right pose. I will provide direction on posing where needed so that your photos don't look stiff or posed. Additionally, I will also provide images with sample poses. I have used these during my mini-sessions and have had a lot of positive feedback from clients.
✨ Will my photos show up on your website or social media accounts?
As a photographer, it is important for me to show off my work to attract new clients and to keep my portfolio current. If you feel comfortable, I will share your photos on my website and social media accounts.
✨ Are you insured?
Yes, I am fully insured.
✨ What is your backup policy for photos?
Once a session is completed, all photos are immediately downloaded and backed up onto three external hard drives. All of the hard drives are kept in fireproof box.
✨ What is your rescheduling policy?
Life happens! You can absolutely reschedule your session if one of us becomes ill, the weather isn't on our side, or something unexpected comes up! I do ask that a reasonable amount of time is given -- usually 24 to 48 hours.
✨ Do you work with videographers?
Yes! Studio R Photography has partnered with Carlo Deconza of Deconza Productions. Videography services can be added on to any session for an additional cost. Typically, if a client requests videography services, I will give them Carlo's information and he will reach out to them to further discuss their request.
✨ Do you charge for travel?
Yes. For any location that is more than 50 miles from the Pocono Mountains, there will be a $1 fee for each mile. For example, if your location is 75 miles from the Pocono Mountains, you will have an additional $25 fee.
✨ What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, check, credit card, PayPal, Zelle, Venmo, Apple Pay, and CashApp.
✨ Do you have payment plans?
I understand that everyone lives on a budget and paying in full or even two payments may not work for everyone. Since everyone's situation is different, I create payment plans based upon my client's needs and finances.
✨ Do you offer discounts or sales?
For my prints, I will have a few sales throughout the year. For sessions, I try to have at least one discount offer per season. However, during the holiday season, I often hold mini sessions at local business, such as the Paradise Lavender Farm in Cresco or the Olde Village Trader in Mount Pocono. I consider these special sessions and offer them at a discounted rate as compared to a typical mini session.
✨ Can I purchase prints of photos in your portfolio?
Absolutely! All portfolio photos (with the exception of the Session Portfolio) are available for purchase through my wesbite. There are numerous sizes and materials to choose from!
✨ My question isn't here!
That's okay! Just message me and I will answer you within 24-48 hours.
