FAQ

How far in advance should I schedule my session?

That depends on the type of session you're envisioning. But keep in mind that our fall sessions are usually booked by Summer and Spring Sessions are usually booked during the Winter months.

When do I view my pictures?

Depending on your session, we will either do same day viewing or we will schedule your reveal ordering session about 2-3 weeks following your session. There, we will present all of your fully edited images to you, and walk you through all of our print & digital collections and a la carte options to find out what best suits your family needs.

What is the cost for your services?

Vine & Vow Seniors is a full-service photography studio, offering a tailored client experience and beautiful photo products to serve as family heirlooms for years to come. A $50 retainer fee is required to secure your date (this fee is transferrable but non-refundable) -your minimum order will be due the day before your session. The session fee includes the pre-consultation, sitting fee, professional hair & makeup styling, access to the style closet and in-person viewing & ordering session. For more information on pricing, please fill out the form on the CONTACT page.

Can I have a USB with all the images?

Knowing that we live in a digital era, this question gets asked a lot. Photographs aren’t meant to lurk eternally on a hard drive, USB or disk. They’re meant to be printed, displayed, touched and shared. We offer (4) digital collections that come with digital images. If you’re wanting more digitals - we provide web sized images for every print image purchased.

While it may seem as though our job is simply to show up for a few hours and snap you with a nice camera, and just put all images on a disk/USB this is far from the reality. Our prices accurately reflect the amount of time, care, and attention we spend with each client. The end result: superior images and photo products that remain fine-art family heirlooms for decades.

Another photographer is cheaper, can you match their price?

The service we provide is completely unique, based on years of experience and hard work to develop our own style of photography and client care. We do not consider our work to be comparable to any other photographer - and vice versa - for the simple reason that it is custom art.

Our pricing is determined based on our extensive experience, quality of images, superior level of attention we provide to clients, and demand for our time. As such, we cannot price-match based on what others are charging. We are always happy to accommodate a range of budgets and payment options to make your dreams become a reality. We would love to meet with you in-person and see what possibilities we can come up with!

How long does it take to receive my images/products?

Once your order has been placed, your family's heirloom products will arrive within 3-4 weeks off peak, or 4-6 weeks on-peak or for orders that have been customized. We're just as excited as you to see your amazing products.

Why hire Vine & Vow Seniors | The Wanderers for my senior portraits?

Some parents ask what the advantages are of having a senior portraits taken by a professional photographer. Quality cameras are becoming more and more available to everyone, even some cellular devices take great pictures, and it may be appealing to save money by “just trying to DIY it, or have a dad/friend take portraits. Rather than allowing an amateur with a nice camera to capture this very unique time in your child’s life, allow me to put my years of experience to work to create images that flatter and look fantastic even when printed in a very large format.

Photographs aren’t meant to lurk eternally on a hard drive, USB or disk. They’re meant to be printed, displayed, touched and shared. I’ve designed my packages to make sure you will end up with stunning, last-a-lifetime physical pieces that become family treasures. Your end result is not just a gallery of perfectly edited digital images; it’s an album, a canvas, an acrylic wall print, or jut a A PRINT - a real-tactile artwork for your home or dorm room.

Wha is your style? Will I look like the girls on your website?

Let’s keep it real!!! ABSOLUTELY!!! My seniors are beautiful people with special talents | looks, etc. You’re my senior. You’re beautiful!!! I work closely with each to bring out the facets of “their” personalities in the form of visual art. Just as each human being is an individual, each photoshoot is also the same. No two shoots are alike. The sis my specialty. I want to get to know who you are and what you love, and bring that out on camera. Your portraits should be a positive reflection of who you are. My style??? Hmmm, that’s so hard. It’s bold, and colorful or natural, relaxed —> it’s YOU. I like to enhance what’s naturally there rather than try to create something that is not you. {{unless that’s what you want *wink wink*}}. I almost always opt to take photos in natural light because it illuminates skin tones with a soft radiance that makes you glow. I work directly with my seniors to choose locations that’s meaningful and photogenic.

Can I reach you and how?

Here for you, always! Communicating with my seniors is huge part of what I love so much about taking senior portraits. I remain friends with many of my seniors long after I’ve finished our initial session together (and I enjoy continuing to hear about and document their journey - college grad pics, anyone???).

Parents & Seniors: I'm here for you in every way possible. I encourage you to ask questions, give ideas, and play a hands-on role in the process. Getting comfortable with me is essential to our projects success! In your welcome kit, I will provide all ways to chat with me. Or you can add me on Snapchat, Instagram or FB and send me a private message.
