BOOK YOUR PHOTOSHOOT
During your consult, we will discuss your vision, needs, and timing. If we are a fit and you are ready to proceed, you will receive a proposal, contract and pay your retainer. Once your contract is signed and retainer received, you will schedule your planning session and photoshoot date.
Your creative planning session typically occurs within 10 days of your photo shoot date. The objective of this session is to confirm your shoot location, wardrobe selections, props, and discuss any ideas you have or want to achieve during your session. This session is conducted via Zoom.
Now it's your time to shine! We will have a blast navigating your shoot location, leveraging props, and creating some amazing images of you. Following your shoot, I will begin the process of culling your images and selecting the very best. You may even receive a few teasers while you anxiously wait for your reveal. :-)
About 1-2 weeks following your photo session, we will meet in-person for your reveal session. You will select your favorite images and will finalize your digital/print order.
Depending on your order, turn-around time will vary anywhere from 5-14 business days. Custom designed products do require more time and your approval is required before your order is submitted to the print lab. Once your order has arrived, I will contact you to schedule a pick up/drop off time.
Digital products are NOT released until account balance equals zero.
Note: The above process is subject to change to comply with any new Covid guidelines.
READY TO ROCK YOUR SHOT!
Awesome! Kick-off the process by scheduling a pre-booking consultation hosted via Zoom web conference.
When should I book my session?
It's never too soon to reserve your date. I recommend booking at least 2 to 3 months in advance to get your preferred date and it also gives us time to plan out your photo session.
How many pictures will I get to see?
For a 2-hour outdoor photo shoot, you will typically review up to 50 images. I always choose quality over quantity by selecting the very best and most distinct photos that showcase your style, personality, and ultimately commemorate your special occasion.
What does the session fee cover? Does it include any images?
This fee covers the planning and preparation for your photoshoot, a 2-3 hour creative photo session, and the post processing to retouch your images.
The session/retainer fee is non-refundable and does not include digital images or print products. This fee is required in order to secure your photoshoot date on our calendar.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! We do offer payment plans up to 3 months. We can set up a plan that best meets your needs. Due to the custom nature of our work, print products and/or digital products are not released until your account balance is paid in full. Keep this in mind if you have specific timing requirements.
Where is your studio located?
Exciting news! As of February 2021, AJP has a new studio location. Our address is 4174 Hamilton Avenue, 1st Floor, Cincinnati, OH 45223. We are located in Northside in an off-street boutique style studio right next to the Tickle Pickle restaurant.
You can find metered parking on the street or in a pay lot off Chase Ave or Lingo St. Free parking is available on the residential side streets.
