How it works
You both arrive to this session as close to camera-ready as possible. We’ll take a few minutes to get on the same page and do last looks and/or minor makeup application, then we jump right in!
The fee for this session is $500 which is usually split down the middle between each person ($250 each). If you think you want more time for your shared session, you may want to consider booking the Unlimited session instead.
We shoot in…wait for it…Tandem! You and your friend/partner/sibling take turns so that one can change looks while the other is shooting. It sounds a little hectic, but it really isn’t.
This is really up to how quickly you can each move through your looks and what you need to get out of every look. In general, you should plan for 3-4 looks each and then bring extra if time allows. If you decide to add an additional hour to your session you can plan on a couple more each.
You can absolutely bring a hair and makeup artist to your shared session, just keep in mind that you will have to prep off-site beforehand and arrive to your session as close to camera-ready as possible. We have a list of awesome HMUAs we can recommend. Just let us know if you need help reaching out or making that pre-shoot plan.
After the Shoot
The official turnaround to get your proofs is 7-10 days (rarely longer than 7 days). We send each of you a link to a zip file, which you will want to download directly to your computer. We do a pass of your session to remove all the blinking and talking faces, but we do not make decisions about what is good or…less good…so you will receive several hundred images.
You get 2 fully retouched images each included with this session and light adjustments on up to 3 additional selections each. Any additional full retouches are $15 per image. The full retouching process generally includes removing blemishes and flyaway hairs, brightening teeth and eyes, cleaning up garments if needed, and giving the photo an extra color pop and sharpen. Light adjustments include removal of a blemish here and there, or a spot on clothing, a less intensive color enhancement if needed and a little sharpening. Feel free to ask if there’s a minor issue on your photo. We’ll let you know if the full retouching fee is necessary.
