Pageant photography is a passion of mine. I enjoy doing it because it challenges my creativity. It provides an outlet whereby I get to meet new people and I get to make people feel good about themselves. Photography is also a hobby for me. I am a husband, dad, grandpa, fulltime school teacher, college professor and PhD student and photographer… in that order. I say all of this because the enjoyment of my hobby cannot exceed certain priorities in my life such as my family. How I approach client interaction may be a bit different than a fulltime photographer. For an example, my turn around time may be longer than a photographer that does it fulltime. With this as your perspective, please do me two favors, read through the titles below (better if you read the entire page) and complete the form near the bottom. Thanks so much!!
What is the proof turnaround time?
The normal turnaround time for the proofs is two to three weeks. Sometimes I get them under two weeks. It all depends upon what I have going on with my schedule. It is important for you to know this if you are under a time constraint. I may not be able to get them to you in under the timeline that you need for me to do. If you need to “rush” the order, there is an additional $50. This will allow the proofs to reach your email box within three to four days. If you would like to place a rush on your pictures and click the PayPal link below. If you do not need to place a rush then ignore it.
How will I receive my proofs?
Your proofs will be delivered to you via the email address provided from the form on this page. A webpage will be designed for the contestant. On the webpage, there will be a link to the gallery and an order form.
May I have access to all of the proofs?
Yes… but the photographer is still trying to figure this one out. For an additional $100, you may have the full resolution versions of all of the pictures from the shoot. If you are interested in doing this, please let me know. As a reminder, these will NOT be touched up. These are the quality of the pictures you see in your proof gallery.
Final Prints and Procedures:
I generally only do photography work on the weekends. This is important to mention because if you submit a request on a Monday, I will not begin working on it until that upcoming weekend.
What if I want to order additional pictures beyond the two as part of the shoot?
Two touched up pictures are part of the shoot. Anything beyond this will be an additional touch up fee of $25 per image.
