Most frequent questions and answers

Sure! We developed this flexible product plan because we have found that people all have different needs. By charging a flat session fee, we cover our costs to produce the session for you like the photographer, editor, and consultants.

From there, you can decide to purchase the products that you want. While most prefer a digital collection, some prefer prints. This way, you get to pick what is important to you.

So if you did a standard session, and our standard digital collection, your investment would be $998 total. 

We have no minimum orders, so you can spend whatever is within your budget.

Our session fee does not cover portrait shoots in wedding attire, these “bridal” sessions have special packages, please contact us for details. 

We do not currently photograph dedicated newborn sessions, however we will photograph family groups with newborns older than 6 months. 

The session fee covers your shoot anywhere within a 75-mile radius from Santa Clarita, California, which will cover most of LA County aside from beaches (Additional fee for beach locations apply). 

Shoots outside of this radius may incur travel charges.

We have a list of outdoor locations available for you to review.

We also offer studio sessions by request at our Valencia studio or a DTLA rental studio (additional fees may apply for rental locations)

Not all studios are comparable. The truth is, many photographers operate as freelance artists part time. While there is nothing wrong with that, when working with us you have a dedicated studio manager, access to the best editing team in the world, and you will work directly with Michael, who has been named one of the top wedding photographers in the country.

In addition to that we have invested in technology that the vast majority of other studios haven’t such as medium format cameras and professional lighting. 

While we can’t speak to other studio’s practices, we can tell you that for what we give to our clients, our pricing is extremely competitive when comparing TRUE value of what we give to you. 

Bridal sessions typically result in more advanced editing to accommodate wedding gowns & details, and often require assistants to help with lighting & gown placement. As a result, we have to charge a small additional fee for them.
