Session timeline

Inquiry – You can book a session with me either by filling out this form or giving me a call at 214-561-9000. I’m usually working so if I can’t answer, please leave a message and I’ll return your call as soon as I can.

Consultation – We will talk about your wedding, event or session and choose a date, time and location. I try to allow my clients to decide most of this. If you need help choosing a location, check out my gallery site to get ideas.

Invoice – After we decide the parameters of your session, I’ll send an invoice via email. At this point your session date and time is tentative until a deposit is made.

Booking – Once we have a consultation and a 40% non-refundable deposit is made, the session is fully booked.

Shoot Day – Yay! Time to shoot! Please be on time to your session as I typically fully book my days. If you arrive late, no additional shoot time will be added. Relax and have fun. Bring a friend or loved one, they always help!

Proofing/Editing – After you session, I will begin to proof and edit your images. The entire process takes about a week during non-peak seasons. If I have time, I usually send my clients sneak peeks of their final gallery during the week.

Gallery Delivery – Once editing is complete, I will send an email containing the link to your gallery. Please download multiple copies of your gallery immediately as galleries are taken down after 3-4 months.

Print products

After your gallery is delivered, please make print/album selections with 1 week in order to expedite the printing process.

Package Prints/Canvases – Once my client decides on which images they want to use for the prints included in their selected package, the ordering process is pretty quick. After selection, clients can expect to receive their printed images via USPS mail within 2 weeks.

Want Prints After Your Session? – If prints didn’t come with your package or if you want to order additional prints, you can do so directly from your online gallery. Prints are usually delivered within 2 weeks after ordering.

Albums – Each album is custom designed by me and the design process can take up to 2 weeks depending upon the amount of pages ordered. After my client selects images to be included in album, the design process begins. My client is then delivered an album proof to approve. Once approved, client can expect delivery within 3 weeks.

Digital Images – A digital copy of editing images is included with every session, wedding or event. Once the online gallery is delivered, it is the client’s responsibility to download the images onto a computer or flash drive for safe keeping. Galleries are taken down after 3-4 months. Gallery recovery fees will apply if client fails to download images before gallery is taken down.
