  • FAQ

Where are you located?

Our place is at 398 LeSabre Street in Oshawa, Ontario. PLEASE CALL FIRST Planned appointments and pre-scheduled bookings ONLY please:)  With that said, our schedule is often flexible (especially on weekdays since we run our business from home) so sometimes we can accommodate an appointment the same day.

How long have you been doing photography?

We have been served hundreds of happy brides, families, and individuals with great photos since 2001.

What’s your approach to photography?

It’s no secret that 95% of people do not enjoy having cameras pointed at them, initially. If you are among the lucky 5% of people that do, then half of our job is over and all we have left to do is find the most flattering angles and snap a bunch of great photos. For everyone else, (a.k.a. “the normal people”) we focus first on making the experience enjoyable. Because when you feel more comfortable, you look more natural. Then we can find your best angles and snap a bunch of great photos! We are the natural, “non-stiff pose” photography people.

Do you offer gift certificates?

Yes. The Gift Certificate can be purchased for any dollar amount or can be more specific such as a prepaid portrait session. click here

What should we do to get ready for the photography session?

We are happy to help you plan the particulars of your photo shoot including clothing selection, location/backgrounds, or anything else that is relevant to the style of pictures you want.  This helps us all prepare for a successful and enjoyable photo shoot!

What locations are good for photos?

We succeed in taking beautiful, professional quality photos in all sorts of simple, ordinary places that you probably never thought could be an ideal “on-location studio”.  Examples are backyards, public parks, beaches, a home or friend’s home, conservation areas, a cottage, the zoo, the 30th floor balcony of an apartment building, a library, etc.  We are location specialists, and will use our expertise to create happy beautiful photos in a location that’s suitable for your photo session.

How do you proof the photos?

The photos will be displayed in an online gallery so you can browse them wherever and whenever you like.  You may share the special link to your gallery with your friends and family.  For convenience, the gallery has a few great features: the ability to tag and share favourite photos, and a shopping cart to order and purchase prints easily. 

How soon after the shoot will we see our proofs?

It varies, but usually business headshots are ready within 24 hours, family photo shoots within 3-7 days, and wedding portraits within 3-14 days.  For time-sensitive events or business portraits please advise us of your deadline at the time of booking, and we will prioritize your project to ensure it is done within timeline.

Do your prices include tax?

HST is charged in addition to our prices.

Are your prices firm?

Yes. Our prices are very competitive, and we respect each of our clients by offering the same reasonable prices to everyone. If the package you like exceeds your budget we can either make adjustments to provide a customized package or arrange an affordable payment schedule.  There are discounts available for off-season and non-Saturday weddings.

What are your terms of payment?

For weddings, we require a non-refundable deposit of 50% at the time of booking to reserve the date. Payment for the balance is due 10 days prior to the wedding. Alternately, we can split the whole balance into multiple manageable payments to make the package more affordable.  For other photo shoots payment at the time of booking is preferred, but a 50% deposit at the time of booking and the remaining 50% at the time of the photo shoot is acceptable.
