Step 1. Choose a location. Decide if you will bring me to your location or rent one of my available locations, pick your favorite that fits your taste, goals, and budget.
Step 2. Pay the shoot deposit. After we pick a date that works for our calendars then I check availability with the location. Once availability is approved you send a non-refundable deposit to hold the date for myself and the location. Some locations require payment in full.
Deposits can be paid via the Venmo app, my business account at Bank of America or Paypal (3% transaction fee added). If you are local to Los Angeles you can drop deposits off at my office in Koreatown. NO checks, no e-checks, no money orders, MoneyGram or Western Unions, no exceptions.
3. Shoot day! Hair and makeup have been excluded or arranged. You arrive camera ready and we a great shoot! Please be prepared to bring your balance in cash unless otherwise arranged.
4. After the shoot. You get your password protected and watermarked gallery within 48hrs to a week after your shoot unless other arrangements have been discussed and agreed on. Pick your favorites and send them to me by email or text.
5. RETOUCHING AND TURNAROUND - In general, 2 weeks (or up to 2 to 4 weeks in peak periods) you receive your retouches by email. Larger orders will be broken up into weekly batches. I do each retouch myself and pride myself on quality work that is not rushed. Please book 4 weeks in advance to avoid the stress and expense of rush orders. Rush orders $50 each (in addition to any retouch fee) to be completed within 48 hours.
Rescheduling- Shots can be rescheduled once with no additional fee within 48 business hours of your shoot with the exception of special offers. Special offers are not able to be rescheduled or applied to a future shoot. Rescheduled shoots must be shot within 30 days original shoot date. I require a minimum amount of bookings to make a special offer work for all artist and models involved. Rescheduling for specials is not an option.
Last but not least. Your privacy. I understand the sensitivity of these type of shoots. You are in control. I only use your photos for my portfolio and social media with your emailed permission. If you want them off my site at a later date, just make the request. No questions asked. I only ask to use at least one photo from your shoot that does not show your face. Promotional photos from my shoots are what caught your attention and are leading you to shot with me. Please keep that in mind.
