IMAGE PROCESSING, RETOUCHING, AND EDITS
You will be selecting the images I edit based on the package you selected. Any additional edits must be purchased before photographer will start editing. Photographer will only deliver the high-resolution, retouched, edited, JPEG images to Client and will not send unedited original "RAW" files to Client under any circumstance unless purchased separately. Photographer spends 2-3+ hours on each image making sure selected favorites are edited to the highest perfection. Photographer professionally edits and retouches face, body, background, contrast, lighting, color, distracting objects, and cropping.
-I highly recommend hiring a professional to do your hair and make up to ensure the highest quality photos. Please be sure to try on your clothing before the shoot to make sure it fits correctly. You should not rely on the photographer (photoshop editing) to correct your hair, make up, and clothing. The lack of quality within your prep can not guarantee high quality results within the retouching process. If you need a good stylist, make up artist, or hair artist please ask for my preferred list.
Additional retouching fees will be required for poor wig installs. Your lace must be good quality, and blended correctly or you will be charged extra or left as is. (Up to $12/Image depending on severity) It's unfortunately not easy to fix in photoshop and adds multiple hours in editing to correct.
SESSION RULES & LATE POLICY
-Please be on time, and arrive no more than 15 min early
-Session will start at your scheduled time. If you are late, your session will still end at scheduled time.
-If you are 30 minutes late, and no effort has been made to contact photographer your session will be automatically canceled. Your retainer will act as your cancelation fee, and a new retainer will be required to book in the future.
