Here are the answers to a few questions I am frequently asked. If you don’t see your question answered here, please contact me and I’d be happy to help!

Questions
How far in advance do I need to book my session?

In the winter and early spring, sessions need to be booked about one month in advance.  From May-December, sessions are booking about 2-4 months in advance.  For weddings, I am booking 2 months to a year in advance.

HOW DO I BOOK PERLE PHOTOGRAPHY’S SERVICES?

It’s easy! After we discuss the kind of coverage you would like, we will figure out a date that works for us both.  I will then send you your photography agreement. You simply sign it and send the retainer fee into me. Once I receive it, your date is saved and you are officially booked!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY PHOTO SHOOT?

The most important thing is to wear something you feel good in.  Try to stay away from logos and identical outfits. Instead, wear colors and patterns that complement the clothing of the other people in your group.  I’d also be happy to give you a few recommendations.  For more inspiration, click here.

WHAT KIND OF PRINTS DO YOU OFFER?

I offer gift prints, wall prints, session albums, graduation invites, save-the-date cards, thank you cards, and more!

DO YOU TRAVEL?

Yes! There may be some extra expenses involved, but I can provide you with a custom quote after we discuss your event plans.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU MAKE AT MY WEDDING OR PORTRAIT SESSION?

Plenty! For a typical wedding, I deliver around 500 images.  I deliver about 50 images for portrait sessions.

DO THE IMAGE USB’S INCLUDE A PRINT RELEASE? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

I include a print release with every USB so you can print your images anywhere. The release lets you do pretty much anything with your photographs for personal use.  I also have a contract with a professional company, so I’d be happy to order the prints!  Or I can recommend great places to have your images printed!
