Here’s some answers to Frequently Asked Questions regarding our Living Social Deal.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE LIVING SOCIAL EVER AFTER PORTRAITS DEAL?
WHO ARE YOU?
Ever After Portraits is Mindy & Joriana, a mother-daughter photography team. We are a boutique studio for clients who value the art of photography and want to experience custom photography that will tell their unique story AND want to preserve those memories with unique products such as Steel, Ice and Bamboo Life Wall Art…curious about what those are? These products really have to been seen to be believed, they are just so different…
We specialize in creating artwork for your home and heirlooms for your family. As part of your Living Social deal, we will create custom designed Wall Concepts – created specifically for your decor style and lifestyle. Our Life Wall Art Collections are offered in unique finishes such as the ones below (groupings of images in that fill a wall space) and Portrait Albums. (Be sure to check out our Products page for more info.)
WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT HOW YOU SHOOT PORTRAITS?
Definitely not the Picture People, our focus is on creating candid, artistic, emotional images that showcase the love you share as a family. There are two photographers shooting during each session so you will have images that are close up and far away. We strive to make you comfortable so that your true personalities can shine through and the love you share as a family can be captured in a candid artistic way. Then we guide you through the process so that you can enjoy the images we create every day on your walls as art — we create artwork for your home and heirlooms for your family. We are a boutique studio that creates specialty products and display options to suit your personal style.
HOW DO I BOOK MY SESSION?
WHERE DOES THE PHOTOSESSION HAPPEN?
All sessions, whether at our Indoor or Outdoor studio will be shot at our Studio at 46506 Oak Lane, Sterling, Virginia, 20165. We have a 2.5 acre Outdoor (the majority of the images on our website are from there) and also a fully equipped Indoor Studio.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES FOR PRODUCTS?
Gift prints start at $100; Wall Art Collections begin at $590. Incentives are offered and start at $667/10% off and go up to as much as 25% off. The average client invests $700- $1,500 in their custom photography. See more about the products we offer and the cost here.
WHEN CAN THE PHOTOSESSION HAPPEN?
Living Social sessions are subject to availability (we are not in the office on Tuesdays) Your session can be photographed during the week. Typically, we do not shoot on Saturdays, but Sunday afternoons are available. As far as we are concerned, if you purchased a Living Social deal, it will not expire — we WANT to photograph you! So if having your images taken outside is important to you, then we are happy to schedule your session for the Spring, Summer or Fall.
CAN I CHANGE THE LOCATION OF THE SESSION?
The location of the session cannot be changed. Images will be taken in our Indoor or Outdoor Studio (your choice) at 46506 Oak Lane, Sterling, Virginia, 20165.
CAN I BRING MY PET?
No, for this deal, photographing pets is not included.
CAN I BRING SPECTATORS?
No, we will not photograph with spectators present.
WHAT IF I WANT TO CHANGE OUTFITS?
Change of clothing is not permitted with this deal.
IS HAIR AND MAKE-UP INCLUDED?
Hair & make-up is not included in this deal.
Your hair & make-up must be ready for the camera at the start of your appointment time. However, we work with and recommend the extremely talented hair and make-up artists at Bridal Artistry (http://www.bridalartistrydc.com/).. Using professional make-up artists that are experienced in make-up that is friendly for the camera is important.
DO I BRING MY OWN OUTFIT?
Yes! Once you have completed your paperwork, you will receive an email with more specific outfit ideas.
HOW DO I ORDER MY IMAGES?
Your images will be ready to view in our studio after your photoshoot by appointment.
We are located at 46506 Oak Lane, Sterling, Virginia, 20165. We will have a slideshow prepared for your viewing pleasure in our screening room. You’ll be amazed by how awesome your portraits look when you see them on our large screen.
WHAT CAN I PURCHASE?
You have the option to purchase additional products during your Ordering Appointment. You are not required to purchase anything additional. An 8×10 print is only $100. You can view more about our products here.
SINCE YOU’LL BE DOING SO MANY SESSIONS FROM THIS DEAL, WILL THE QUALITY OF MY PHOTOS BE THE SAME AS YOUR “REGULAR” CLIENTS?
Absolutely YES!. We are set up to take great care of all of our clients. Our clients currently travel from all over the D.C. area to have the Ever After experience and we are looking forward to giving you that same quality of service and products.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
Because we have specifically reserved your appointment time for you, we require 72 hours notice to cancel or reschedule your photosession. We totally understand sometimes life just happens…someone gets sick, or an unexpected business trip. Sessions that are cancelled with less than 72 hours of your appointment are subject to forfeit.
