Turn around time - Quality over speed is my philosophy. The retouching I do is very detailed, focusing on skilled techniques that produce quality images. No shortcuts for a quick turn-around. You should be noticed, not the retouching.
Below are my past normal procedures for retouching. As of Aug 2019, I'm experimenting with a great high end retoucher for a quicker turnaround. My goal is 3 weeks but please bear with me while I work out the kinks. In busy periods it can still take longer. Discuss at booking .
In general please plan to shoot about 6 weeks before you need your photos. Four to five weeks is the average turn around after your order is received but in super busy times it may take up to about 6 weeks. I know this is a lot to some that are use to quick turn arounds but again I do very detailed work and I do it all myself. I'm not fast but I put my all into each project and that quality shines through. It's hard to predict how fast each client will send back a retouching order. Often they come in clusters.
If you have specific time expectations please discuss before booking. Orders included with new shoots packages take priority. Additional retouches may take an additional week(s) to finish depending on the order amount.
- 48 hour rush ordering- Package of 4 = $150
- 24 hour rush ordering- Package of 4 = $300
This is additional to the retouching fee or an add on with a shoot package.
Within one year, there is no penalty for turning in orders late but please be aware that the order will not be automatically rushed. Orders not received within 1 year of your shoot will be no longer valid.
Deposits - A 50% non-refundable deposit is required at booking to secure your shoot for most shoots. A few location options require a larger payment to book. Please see individual requirements on the location link if applicable.
Deposits are expected within 48 hours after a location date has been approved. NO dates or locations will be held without a deposit.
Rescheduling - 48 hour notice is needed to reschedule with in 30 days to not lose your deposit unless other arrangements have been made. That is for my fee only. Each location has different rules. Please inquire if you are concerned.
Optional expert Hair & Makeup starts at $200 to $250 depending on the artist and is done before your shoot. I suggest this option so you are not paying for time at the location (unless shooting at your location) in addition to this cost for hair and makeup. Many go to the MAC counter, local beauty or blowout bar before shooting to save. The majority of my clients come camera ready so makeup and hair are not offered automatically.
Travel shoots - Bring me to your city or vacation destination for an exclusive I.L.SENSUAL photo shoot. I can put together a custom package for 1 person or a group. Investment starts at 1/2 day for west coast travel and day rate for other locations or custom packages for a group. You will be expected to cover airfare, additional luggage fees to fly my equipment, hotel and ground transportation in your city. Contact me to discuss. I love to travel and shoot in new places and do have a valid passport.
