Why do you need my payment info when booking?
With our booking & quote request process we require that you authorize a credit card or PayPal account to confirm your booking. You won’t be charged until your photos have been delivered and you’re happy with them, but our goal is to streamline the billing process as much as possible in order to spend more time focusing on your photos and less time on billing.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Deposits are not required to book express shoots.
A 50% deposit is required to reserve your booking.
How does billing work?
Payment is due upon receiving your edited photo gallery approximately 72 hours after your shoot, and never until you’re 100% satisfied with your photos! We accept credit card and PayPal and all payments are securely processed by Braintree.
A 50% deposit is required to reserve your booking. The remainder is due on the day of your event. Additional details regarding the Interactive payment schedule can be provided upon request.
What is your cancelation policy?
Due to the nature of our service we have a cancelation policy in place to protect our photographers.
Our Express (events, headshots, and product photography) cancelation policy can be found here.
Our Interactive cancelation policy can be found on the Billing & ToS page of your contract and/or proposal.
Who will my photographer be?
Your photographer will be an experienced and professional photographer. They will be engaging, highly skilled, and friendly. We also provide you with their name and phone number 24 hours before your booking.
How do I know that they will show up?
We are in constant communication with our photographers and will know immediately if one becomes unavailable. The on-demand aspect of our business allows us to get a replacement in time for your booking.
What if I need the photographer for longer than I reserved them?
Most of the time, this is not an issue at all. Please ask the photographer if this is ok. They are instructed to notify us and we will take care of updating the time and balance due on our end. There is no extra fee, just the standard hourly rate applies.
When will I get my photos?
After your shoot your photographer will transfer your photos to our editors. Unless you've selected rush delivery or an on-site edit when booking, you will receive a link to your shareable gallery of all images within 72 hours of the end of your booking.
How many photos will I receive during my shoot?
The final number of photos varies depending on several factors including event size, duration, attendance, etc. Our goal is to edit and deliver every good photo that is taken during your shoot, and we don’t limit you to a specific number of photos in your gallery.
We would be happy to chat about your shoot in more detail so that we can put together a better estimate for you. Feel free to schedule a call and we’ll be happy to help!
Do you rent photobooths?
We actually have something much, much better. Check out our Interactive service for more information.
