Frequently Asked Questions
Help! I dont know how to pose!
Girl, we are here for you. I have been photographing for so long - I can tell you that between our beauty artist, our styling and planning, and my direction -- you are going to be absolutely stunning.
Where will I be photographed?
Most photoshoots happen in my studio; located in Brooklyn, NY. However, If you prefer; I would also love to capture you in the woods, on a secluded beach, or at your dream location!
What is the booking fee?
The booking fee is a non-refundable retainer to hold your photoshoot date. When you book; we dedicate that day to you and you only.
Will you help with wardrobe?
I have been styling photoshoots for as long as I can remember! I have some basics to get gorgeous photos, but I highly recommend renting, borrowing, or purchasing wardrobe that makes you feel confident and beautiful for your shoot. I am here to help though! Between what you bring and what I have on hand I can help style which outfits and pieces that will photograph best.
How long does a session take?
Usually my portrait sessions last about 3 hours.
Can you travel?
I LOVE to travel! Especially if you're thinking about a gorgeous mountainside, woodsy forest, or anywhere with a beach ;) Lets have a chat about what you are dreaming up, and I am certain we can create magic. *To book Brandi for travel (Anywhere outside the greater NYC area) must include transportation and at least one nights hotel stay.
How long does it take to recieve my prints?
All of my packages and products include retouching and printed materials; these two steps can be done as quickly as 4 weeks or up to 6 (especially if there is a holiday! - If your aim is to receive printed products before a holiday I recommend booking at least 6 weeks out to be sure!)
What happens at a viewing & ordering appointment?
This is the moment where I show you just how gorgeous you are! (And secretly one of my favorite parts of the expereince!) You might tear up, you might see yourself in a whole new light. If you’re anything like my past clients, you perhaps have never been photographed like this! I hope to show you the gorgeous shots we got, and we can make a decision together on which photos and products you would like to order. Once we decide, full payment will be due, and I will start production on your order and get it to you within 4-6 weeks!
Do you offer digital files?
Digital files come complimentary with my printed packages.
Do you reccomend prints?
Well, I grew up in a photography darkroom; Although we are in a digital age we are constantly met with a new platforms, storage filling, and the inevitable data corruption. Prints are f o r e v e r. There is NOTHING like seeing yourself, or a loved one in a photograph, especially when it becomes aged, and your children or your childrens children own and cherish them. I urge you to remember, these photos are a legacy, a timeless and classic statement of who you are in this moment. And because it is one of my truest passions to #bringbackprints, all of my packages include printed products.
Do you photograph families? On location? My dog?
Yes, yes, and yes! Did I mention that I LOVE to photograph? If you are wanting something special photographed - please reach out!
