What should I wear?

We fit your photography to the type of business that you want to attract. Professional attire for business, casual for portraits, fashion styles for modeling. Dress for success, and look your best.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes, sometimes having a friend along can help put you at ease in the studio, if you are relaxed and enjoy the session, you’ll have some great photos.

Do you charge extra for travel?

Yes, we charge a mileage fee for regional locations, and a reasonable fee if we need to stay overnight in your city for hotel and meals. For long distance trips we charge for airfare and freight fees or rental fees to transport our equipment.

Do you have hair and makeup services?

Yes, we have a hairstylist and also a makeup artist on staff. They charge a base rate of $60 per hour based on the time of the session.

For editorial projects, do you offer product styling services?

Yes, we have a professional set designer available that can arrange just about any prop that you can imagine. We’ve even rented a lear jet for one of our shoots in the hanger with access to 3 jets on the tarmac.

Do you work with agencies?

Yes, we work with many agencies for photo and video shoots. We’ve worked on projects with Justin Timberlake, Dierks Bentley and more.

Do you shoot lots of weddings?

Over the years we’ve shot hundreds of weddings, and we stay in very high demand. Our quality, style and reputation for photographing high end weddings keeps us very busy. We usually shoot about 12 weddings a year, about 1 a month, so if you want to retain us, be sure to do it early, we typically book a year in advance. From time to time we work in an extra wedding, so don’t hesitate to inquire. We stay so busy with our commercial work, that only leaves us available for a few weddings.

Do you work exclusively with Southern Bride Magazine?

We’ve been working for the magazine for about 10 years. We do work with many other magazines, agencies and publications. Working with Southern Bride has been an amazing experience, we get to travel, shoot and write articles. We also get to stay in & photograph some of the most beautiful hotel resorts in the world. It’s been good for us, and the relationship we have with the editors makes it even more fun.
