What should we wear?We have good news! Once you book, we'll send you a full guide of what to wear and what looks the best based on the type of session. However for most sessions I tell my clients keep it simple with a pop of color or a bold statement jewely piece. Our recommendation is to mix and match light and dark colors then add a splash of jewelry to top it off. For example, if you're in a light color pair that with a bold statement piece (gold/silver necklace) and have your partner in a dark shirt with a light color accessory (tie or pocket squre). Patterns work too, but try to limit the number of people in plaid or patterns so you don't overdo it. The key is get a nice balance of colors and patterns! If you're doing a two hour session don't forget to bring a second outfit and save the best for when the sun is just about to go down. And you're really stuck, shoot us an email with your outfit and we'd be happy to help you chose!
Why do you only offer two session times for outdoor sessions?Great question! We only offer two outdoor session times because getting the light right is the most important part of photography and the best light is available when the sun is rising or setting. In the end our goal is to provide our clients with memories they can hang on their walls for years to come. Also, we want our clients to look and feel their absolute best and we've learned that these times create the most amazing photos.
What happens if we need to reschedule due to weather?The one downside of shooting outdoors is we cannot control mother nature, which we will not hold against you. In the event, that we need to reschedule due to rain, snow or other acts of God we will not charge a rescheduling fee; however, we cannot guarantee that the location selected will be available for the new session date. In the event the location is able to reschedule MRCreativeCo will not charge any additional rescheduling fee. If there was assoicated location fee and the location allows the fee to be transfered to the new date, there will be no futher payment required. If the location is unable to reschedule and a fee was paid in advance, MRCreativeCo will bill the client for any charges incurred and any additional fees to re-book the session.
What is the Studio Agreement?Our studio agreement outlines all the studio details from booking information, payment requirements, studio turn around times, image copywrites, downloading and priting images, and all the just in case information. All our packages will be provided with one of the following contracts: wedding, protrait (includes: engagement, family, baby and pet), model and/or minor release, and a print release. The contract issued will be determined by the type of session booked and must be signed before the session occurs.
