Frequently asked questions when booking a session.

How to book a photography session with me? 

You can send an email to inquire for your session, however, an initial call is recommended to further discuss the details of your session/event. Share your preferred date and number of hours for the session/event, any questions you may have and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours. 

What is the turnaround time? 

The turnaround time for all sessions and events is 2 weeks. 

How will I receive my photos? 

After the photoshoot, I'll need few days to sort through for the best shots, edit them, and upload these to Dropbox. You'll be able to access and download your photos through a private link. The link expires in 6 months, so save and backup your photos in a flash drive. And you’ll have unlimited rights to share the photos, so you’re free to share them with your friends and family, post on social media and more! 

Can I select the photos? 

During your photo session, there are many photos which are duplicates, out of focus and blurry and non flattering. A part of my work as a photographer is to select the best shots, edit creatively and deliver them to you. 

What happens if I need to cancel or reschedule the session? 

A $40 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session. If for some reason you need to reschedule or cancel your session, get in touch with me at least 24 hours in advance of the date and time specified in your contract. I am reachable via phone/text/email. However, if you don’t arrive for your session, the deposit will not be refunded. Nothing is booked until you pay the deposit and sign the contract. 

Is there a travel fee? How far can you travel?

I live in Sacramento and can travel to the Bay Area to take photos for you. However, I’ll need your help to cover travel expenses when I’m driving long distances. So, I’ll charge an extra $20 per photoshoot if I have to travel more than 40 miles from 95833.

What safety precautions are you taking during COVID-19? 

  • I offer virtual consultations. I will get in touch with you a day before  and on the day of your session, and ask questions like, "How are you feeling? Have you had cough, flu like or  COVID-19 symptoms in the last 2 weeks? Have you been around anyone with these symptoms in the last 2 weeks? Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?" 

  • I will be wearing a mask during your session. I will also bring a sanitizer with me. 

  • Social distancing is maintained using a no-touch posing technique. I will bring a lens that will allow me to keep safe distance. 

  • The photography equipment is disinfected pre-session and post-session.

  • Clients can bring their own props, no props are supplied by the photographer. 

  • Contracts are signed online and payment is accepted via Apple Pay, Google Pay, Venmo and Square. 

If you have any other questions, please reach out. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
