This session is ideal for celebrations, parties, and special events where you want candid photos of your guests and the event or celebration. You get to relax and enjoy the party while I make the rounds and quietly photograph the ceremony, guests, food, presents, and the venue. This session is perfect for events such as:

  • Birthday Parties (no matter the age)

  • Receptions

  • Baby Dedications

  • Ceremonies

  • Graduation Parties

  • Anniversary Parties

  • Family Reunion Celebrations

Please note: This session does NOT apply to weddings or wedding receptions.

Session Details:

  • Investment: $200 for the first hour, $50 each additional 30 minutes

  • There is an additional $50 travel fee if outside the Colorado Springs area.

  • I provide a pre-session consultation to discuss the details of your event and the photos you want me to capture. 

  • Images: This session includes 10-15 custom portraits of the focus of the event, such as the birthday girl, anniversary couple, or a group photo of the family reunion. The total number of custom portraits will depend on the length and nature of the event. In addition, the session includes a minimum of 40 candid photos of the celebration. The total number of candid images will depend on the length and nature of the event.

  • You will download your high-resolution images through a private gallery on my website.

  • Includes the opportunity to purchase professional prints, standouts, and canvases from your session. The quality is guaranteed and my prices are reasonable; I want to see beautifully printed images on your walls.

  • I require a $50 non-refundable retainer to hold your session date, due at the time the contract is signed, paid via my online store. The remainder of the session fee is due on the day of your session.


 

What can you expect after the session? 

  • After your session, I go through every image and carefully select the best. I then custom edit 10-15 of the best images for your custom portraits. These are portrait photos you would be pleased to hang on your wall. Then I select a minimum of 40 candid images of the event (the guests and details) and apply a minimal edit to them. These are photos intended for a photo album or memory book.  

  • Usually within 2-3 days you can expect a preview on my facebook page if you have opted for sharing on Facebook.

  • Once I begin editing, I will send you a link to a private, password protected gallery on my website. You can also purchase professional prints from your gallery, which is a great way for family and guests to have the option of selecting and purchasing photos from the event on their own.

  • Your images will be ready in 2-3 weeks, at which time your gallery will remain open for 14 weeks to give you time to download the images and make any print orders.
