What are your hours?
Appointments are available Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. by appointment. Saturdays are limited. Sundays closed for family and church time :)
What should we WEAR?
Do not feel as though you need to wear a uniform. Each person has a personality. Feel free to pull a bit of that out in their outfit! Avoid large patterns, cool toned skin looks great in jewel tones. Wearing khaki on the bottom and navy on top draws attention downward and away for your face. Kari will help walk you through this process. Details down to makeup and shoes are important. Makeup should be applied a little heavier than normal with making sure to avoid glitter or metallic colors. If shoes are black or brown, then the shoes should match, though we love bare feet!
Do you shoot engagement and bridal sessions?
Yes, engagement sessions are included on all wedding packages. This is a wonderful time for us to get a feel for your personalities. Bridal, trash the dress, and day after sessions are all included on premier coverage packages.
How much do you charge for session outside of the Wisconsin Rapids area?
Our fee depends on the location of your session/event. Our travel fees are quite reasonable as we charge near our cost. Do not feel that your session should be limited to this area. We love to travel and are willing to go to your favorite location of choice to make the experience special.
Do you have back up equipment?
Yes. All images ordered 5x7 and larger will include a light retouching of under-eye circles and facial blemishes. Moles, scars, and birthmarks are left in as it is part of your skin personality unless requested to be removed. Our retouching is light enough that you will not look like Ken and Barbie plastic. Braces, fixing eyelashes, clothing color swaps and slim downs are done upon quote. Mounting is included on all images 7" or larger for maximum durability.
Do you sell the CD?
"Selling the CD" is a modern day question we are asked almost daily. When you commission a photographer to take your portraits, the negatives remain in their name as they were created by that individual. We DO offer digital negatives for those that would like to have them for archival or scrap booking purposes. Prices vary on family, children, or mini sessions. We also sell beautiful coffee table books and have ways to obtain many of your favorites.
