Red Velvet Photography | Q and A

Can I bring a friend?

Absolutely!  In fact, we encourage you to bring a female friend who will make your session more comfortable and fun.  

 

What about my consultation?

For your face to face consultation, we'll meet up so we can go over what type of shoot you are wanting and what type of look you desire in your final photographs. You are also free to e-mail as often as you need to answer any of your questions. You will also receive an e-mail from us 3-5 days before your shoot to confirm the details. 

 

Can I share my session with a friend?

Of course! You are paying for our time. If you wish to split your session with a friend or two, that’s great. Just remember the more people in your session the more of your time is spent changing and prepping for the next shot, which results in fewer pictures for you. If you plan on having a friend in your session, we would advise that you add one hour to your package.

 

How do I book a session?

Once you’ve decided to book a session with us, we will require a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold your day.  We accept most major credit cards.  

 

Once we’ve booked you, we close off our schedule to all other clients. If you need to reschedule, please let us know within 14 days of your shoot. 

 

Who will be at my session?

We are a husband and wife team, and both will be present at your shoot.  We want you to have fun and be relaxed. We work closely with you to make sure you are comfortable before, during and after your session to ensure the real you comes through in your photographs.

 

What is the age of your clients?

A majority of our clients are between the ages of 23 and 45. We will not shoot anyone under the age of 18, and photo identification is required before shooting can begin.

 

What about nudity?

Topless or full nude is extremely common.  In our experience, about 70% of our photos have some type of nudity. Rest assured we are always professional. Our attitude is that whatever you are comfortable shooting, we are comfortable shooting. Please note that although we shoot edgy, provocative photographs, we will not shoot porn.  

 

What if I don’t know how to pose?

No worries! Posing has never been a problem, we will direct you. However, we encourage all clients to get out on the internet or to pick up a magazine before your consultation. These are remarkable resources that will give you many fun ideas for your shoot. If at all possible, we will help you create those photos. Bring any and all ideas to your consultation. 

 

Do you retouch my photos?

Most definitely! We take care of those little problem spots so you look the best you can in your photos. 

 

Do I get to look at my photos before I get my thumb drive?

Yes. You will be given a password protected private gallery to view before we send you your DVD.  

 

How long before I get my thumb drive or book?

Your thumb drive will be ready 21 days after your session, your book will arrive in 4 weeks after you choose your photos.

 

What do I bring?

This is simple!  Anything you want to bring - clothes, hats, props of any kind. Let your imagination run wild. If you can fit it in your automobile and you want it in the shot, chances are we can work it out! 

 

These are other things to think about:

- We encourage brides to bring a veil and anything associated with a wedding. 

  1. Depending on your package, street clothes, swimsuits, and of course lots of lingerie. 

  2. We encourage garter belts and thigh-hi hosiery.

  3. If it’s sexy, bring it!

  4. Shoes, shoes, shoes.

 

What about my hair and makeup?

We strongly recommend that you have your hair and makeup professionally done before your shoot. If you choose to do your own, that is fine as well, but please bring your hair and makeup items with you for touch up. 

 

What about my Big Day?

When you arrive, we’ll help you decide which outfits work with the environment you have chosen for the shoot.

 

No stuffy artists here!  We play music, serve snacks, laugh and have fun during shoots.  No need to worry about posing.  We’re here to help you every step of the way with natural looking poses and lighting effects that make you look great!  

 

Rest assured that your day will remain private and confidential. 

 

 

Feel free to call if you have any questions.
