Q: Do we have to pay ahead of time?
A: We do require a $50 retainer in order to reserve your portrait session. The remainder of the payment will be due the day of the session. We offer payment plans for session packages and wedding packages. For wedding packages, we require a $500 retainer to reserve your date. The remaining balance is due one month before your session.
Q: What can we bring to the session?
A: You can bring any items you would like us to photograph to your session.
Q: I want a location shot, but I don’t know where I would like to go. Do you know any locations?
A: Yes!! We have shot at a variety of locations throughout Western New York, so we will make sure to share them with you!
Q: Are digital images included in the session fee?
A: We include web-resolution images with all of our sessions. These are crisp, low size images (approximately 1.5 megapixels) that are ideal for sharing on social media and storing. They can be printed no larger than a 5×7 print. If you are interested in larger images or wall art, we are partnered with a professional lab that creates archival prints (this means the prints do not yellow or fade over time). We have a variety of print packages available as well as a la carte options.
Q: Where are you located?
A: We work on location within 25 miles of Grand Island, NY. Studio sessions will either be an in-home session or a pop up studio location.
Q: How many images will I receive? Will they be edited?
A: For our portrait sessions, we generally send between 20-30 images. All sessions include hand edited images for color correction, blemish removal, and to the artistic style of C&S Photography.
Q: How long do you store images?
A: All portrait sessions include cloud based digital galleries for two months, and weddings for one year. Once the allotted time frame expires, the session will be deleted from the gallery and digitally archived for up to one year. Digitally archived sessions can be restored post-gallery expiration for a fee of $75.
