How do you take payments?
We accept all forms of payment including Zelle, Venmo, Ca$hApp ($AshfordArt), Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org), Credit or Debit Cards, and cash. If you do not have a card to book online and pay your deposit, you can contact us and drop off at our studio. 501 N 13th Ave.
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Yes. Your appointment is not officially booked until the deposit is paid. The deposit is usually 25% (minimum of $50) of your quoted price. The balance is due on the day of your shoot. Deposits are non-refundable, so if you cancel your appointment at any time, you are not entitled to a refund. However we will work with reschedules as best we can (depending on our schedule).
What if I need to reschedule?
Can’t make your appointment? No problem. Call us and we will set up a new date and time. No last minute reschedules, please let us know at least 3 days prior to your shoot. There is also a $25 rescheduling fee. Reschedules must be set within 30 days of the original shoot date. No 2nd Reschedule! If you are unable to make the rescheduled appointment for any reason, you will have to book again (Your original shoot will be canceled and your deposit forfeited..) If you fail to give advance notice for any reason, HALF the remaining balance of your shoot will be due immediately upon rescheduling. *Wedding dates cannot be rescheduled without forfeiting the initial deposit.
If you can’t reschedule and have no choice but to cancel, we understand. However your deposit cannot be refunded. For no-shows or cancellations less than 24 hours in advance, your card on file will automatically be charged 25% of the remaining balance.
When do I get my pictures/video?
The entire process (for photos) from start to finish takes about 7 days. If you need your photos back faster than that, we have 48 Hr Rush Service available ($50). 24 Hr Rush Service is $100. Videos average a 30 day turnaround, depending on complexity. For weddings/special events please allow up to 3 months for photos/video, depending on our queue. Rush service on wedding photos is $250 (2 week turnover). We work as fast as we can to get all of our clients’ projects back to them in a timely manner.
Can I get prints?
We offer high-quality studio prints using premium 5-star quality photo paper, printed with pigment ink so that it will never fade. As a matter fact, we give a lifetime guarantee on all of our prints. Please Note: The price of your photoshoot (sitting fee) does NOT include printing. If you would like prints, those are extra. Once we take your photographs, you will receive your pictures via email.
