You’re already a photographer.

In fact, you probably carry around two or three cameras every day; One for selfies, and another two for everything else.

Smartphones have advanced at an amazing rate in terms of photo quality and capability.

Truth is, our generation takes and shares more photos than ever... of everything! Ourselves, our kids, our friends, our cat(s). Even our worst-looking food gets a snap! #dontgetmestarted

So, where do we come in?  If you already have thousands of photos you’ve taken by yourself, why hire Josh & Vane to make portraits for you? Why are you here?

You're here because you've realized:

  • We take more disposable snapshots than any other generation, but are missing out on preserving truly-important moments.
     
  • Our phones are full of thousands of trivial photos, while the walls in our home are empty!

You’re here to change that, and we’re here to help.

Are digital files included in the session price?

Digital files are not included in the session price.

The session price represents your investment in the time, skill and experience of your photographer, for the amount of time included in the collection, as well as the professional retouching and personal service being provided.

Standard and Deluxe packages come with an amount of free credit to use toward the purchase of products, including digital files, from your finished collection of pictures.

Also, all physical purchases come with the corresponding digital file.

When will I be able to see and order pictures from the session?

We will select the very best pictures from your session and do basic retouching to get them ready for your in-person presentation. Typically, this will take up to two weeks after your session date.

What is an in-person reveal? What is an ordering session?

We will schedule a time to meet with you at your home or other comfortable location for your in-person Reveal, where you will have the chance to see your finished collection of images.

This Reveal is also your first ordering session: Your opportunity to select which images will come into the real world in print, canvas or album!

If you live quite far away and an in-person reveal will not be possible, we will schedule a time to present your photos and take your order of goods via online meeting.

Who may come to the Reveal and Ordering Session?

Everyone that is in charge of making financial decisions, as well as the people that will receive the finished goods, should be present at the Reveal and Ordering Session. (Unless of course, the goods are being purchased as a surprise gift.)

What happens to the pictures I don't purchase?

We will do our best to keep your un-purchased images for six months after your reveal.

As there is a financial cost associated with the storage and retention of images, your images may be deleted after six months.

You will be notified in advance of any expiring images, and in some circumstances we may be able to offer an extension.

Besides the products mentioned here, do you make any other products?

Yes!

Although we primarily offer mounted prints, fine art canvas, books and albums, there are many other things that can be done with your images. If you are interested in more products, a full suite of additional photo products may be presented on request.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule my session?

Cancellation:

Free Cancellation: You have 7 days from your booking date to cancel services without cost.

After 7 days, and before the day of your session: Cancelling your session completely, without rescheduling, will be subject to a cancellation fee of $200. The rest of your portrait session cost will be returned.

No-Shows and Day-Of Cancellations:

All portrait sessions must be paid in full before the day of the session. If you fail to show for your portrait session, the full price of your session will be retained, and you may reschedule your session at a later date for a fee of $100.

Inclement Weather:

Sometimes light rain can make for interesting images, and rest assured all of our gear is weather-resistant. But if you have a very particular look in mind, and the weather is not cooperating, we would be happy to reschedule to another available date.

Your full payment for the session will be retained for the rescheduled session. There is no fee for weather-related rescheduling.

Sickness or Emergency:

Unfortunately, we all get sick now and then. Sometimes at the worst possible times! Also, unexpected emergencies may arise on the day of your shoot. Please inform us as soon as possible if you do not feel well or an unexpected emergency occurs.

Depending on the circumstances of your emergency, we may reschedule, or in extreme circumstances, refund the cost your portrait session.

There is no fee for sickness or emergency-related rescheduling.
