Frequently Asked Questions FAQ: This is where we answer most of your questions before you even talk to us. Now you have no objection but to schedule your photoshoot
Preparing for your photoshoot
Of course. This is exactly why we have a consultation with every one of our clients. Allie will chat with you, look at examples in our gallery and find out what inspires you. We will style the final looks together.
Don’t be nervous. Most of our clients feel that way and they love the experience at the end. We will address all your concerns, and guide you every step of the way, and during the photoshoot Allie will guide you to look your best.
You have nothing to wear? No problem. As a part of the photoshoot experience, we will help you to find the best wardrobe for you in time for your photoshoot. We will even be your shopping guide. In addition, you can use your shopping credit and pick out gowns and dresses from our studio wardrobe on StylesbyAllie.com.
That’s fine. You can wear clothing you are the most comfortable in and look your best. We will help you to pick out something fabulous.
A photoshoot can be anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours depending on what type of photos you’re taking. The length of a photo shoot depends on many factors, including the number of people in the shot, the type of photoshoot experience, the number of outfit changes as well as location changes, and the photographer’s skill level.

Yes absolutely. We guarantee that you will have fun being photographed and the entire experience. You will look like your authentic self in your photos. If not, we haven’t done our job well. You will love your photos and have a difficult time deciding between them. And lastly, the images we capture are not just regular photos. they are visual masterpieces that tell your story and capture your legacy. See more about our Guarantee here.
Pricing and Product Information
To secure your photoshoot date, I ask for a $1,250 non-refundable deposit. This covers the professional hair and makeup, the entire photoshoot planning and you’ll also get a $100 credit to my sister company StylesbyAllie.com
From there it’s entirely up to you how many images you love to buy. Images and products are sold separately and your deposit is applied toward your total. You can select just 1 or 2 images ala carte at $625 per image or get the full collection of 24, 12, or 6 images with products at $6,500, $4,500, or $3,000. That is entirely up to you.
Yes of course. Not everyone needs a set of prints or wall art and we totally understand that. You will receive a digital copy of every portrait you select and if you want just digitals, that’s fine too. The cost is the same because the digital negative is just as important as a portrait on the wall. Remember, your hard drive will crash, your phone will break, and your computer may get a virus, but the portrait on your wall will always be with you.
We offer Wall Art, Folio Boxes, Albums, and much more. Above you can see product options and starting rates. If you’d like to see everything in person, let’s schedule a time with Allie for you in the studio and chat. Also, you can visit our products page and be wowed by the incredible products that can be yours.
When you see the portraits during the reveal session, we will have made the basic retouching to show you close to the final product. However, an additional enhancement to soften facial lines and remove blemishes can and will be done prior to placing the portrait order. All detailed retouching is included in the total cost of the portrait.
Depending on your choice of framing and product, your digital images will be ready within one week. From there, your products will be ready for pick-up or delivery within 4-6 weeks, unless otherwise noted.
We are closed on weekends except for one Saturday per month. It is a premium booking and requires a $2,500 deposit which will go toward your purchase. We are closed on Sundays. But honestly, most of my clients love to schedule a sneaky day off work during the week and enjoy getting pampered & photographed.
Yes, of course. During the week we are available for an evening photoshoot at least 1 day per week. If you need to stop by after work, we can make the appropriate arrangements as well.
We are currently booking 1 month out up to a maximum of 6 months out from the date of the consultation. You can also buy a gift card and pre-pay your photoshoot that way if you need more time.
Yes, of course, we want you to share your experience with those you love. Please make sure they are pre-warned though. We often bring them on the set with you and capture a portrait of the two of you together. So yes but know that if your girlfriend or a partner is here with you, they will most likely also be photographed along with you.
