How it works
You 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 $390 even if you don’t use the full two hours.
Short answer: Yes. Long answer: Yes, but as long as you’re not trying to get a crazy amount of looks, you’ll have plenty of time. Like with the One-Hour, you want to have a plan in place and you want to prioritize your most important looks, but there’s much more room for adjustments and decision-making on the day.
You are welcome to bring a hair and makeup artist to your two-hour shoot. We ask that you arrange a pre-shoot appointment for hair and makeup prep prior to your session so that you can arrive camera-ready. If you can’t find a suitable prep location, we are happy to have you arrive up to 45 minutes prior to your session start time with your Makeup Artist for hair and makeup prep here. (This is not available for the One-Hour session.) Please be sure to communicate your needs well in advance of your session date so we can schedule accordingly.
We have a list of awesome HMUAs we can recommend if you request it. Just let us know if you need help reaching out.
It’s great for everyone if you chat with us beforehand about the looks you want to get and your wardrobe choices. The Two-Hour allows for more time to make decisions on the day, so it’s not as vital to come with an exact plan laid out. You are always welcome to bring a couple of options per look if you want some in-person advice.
This is really up to how quickly you can move through your looks and what you need to get out of each look. In general, you should plan for 6 looks and then bring a couple extra options if time allows (it often does).
After the Shoot
The official turnaround to get your proofs is 7-10 days (rarely longer than 7 days). We send 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 included with your session and light adjustments on up to 6 additional selections. 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.
