Please inquire or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your session/wedding requested date and any details you would like to specify. I will get back to you within 48 hours! The non-refundable 25% retainer deposit (from the total amount) is required to reserve a session or wedding date, along with the signed wedding contract agreement for weddings. Busy seasons book up quickly (early March-early May and end of September-end of December) so it's recommended to book a session several weeks or months in advance, if you are requesting a specific date. I'm unable to hold a date without the required deposit for both sessions and weddings. Prices are subject to change at any time, without notice.
I'm currently nestled in the pines of Flagstaff, Arizona and love traveling. I'm available to travel throughout Arizona and out-of-state (I do not have a studio space). A travel fee will be applied for sessions and weddings outside of Flagstaff. Any additional fees will be in incurred depending on milage, permits, parking or entry fees are required for your requested location. The session location choice is up to you! I have pre-sought location recommendations all over Arizona. If you have a specific location or season in mind (for example the iconic yellow sunflowers which bloom in mid-August here in Flagstaff) it is recommended to contact me in advance. Please send me an inquiry to discuss more.
Lighting is the most important element of a picture, especially being a natural light photographer. I photograph in gorgeous natural light, usually recommended to begin either early mornings or late afternoons/early evenings, the start time will depend on the season of the year.
Yes! Feel free to bring any fun props or your four-legged animals to your session free of charge, please let me know in advance. These are your photos so you can bring any fun props or items with meaning to your session. Props are not provided for sessions, you must bring your own.
I will send you an outfit guide to help with outfit inspiration and tips for all sessions types. You're welcome to ask or send me outfit options if you need help choosing. I suggest bringing your outfits, touch-up makeup, and a brush/comb in a big bag to carry. Your friend, partner, or parent can come along to help with touch-ups or carry your items, or for support! Cap & gowns are not provided for senior sessions.
My clients receive and view their images through an online private gallery called Pixieset, with instructions which will allow you to download images to your phone or computer and order prints directly within the gallery link store. The turnaround for session galleries is 2-3 weeks and for weddings galleries is 6-8 weeks. The gallery allows easy access for ordering print/canvases, downloading digital images, and sharing with family for personal usage. The gallery is also password protected. Session galleries are available online for 80 days, and for weddings 1 year and then will be removed. Please back up your images. If you would like to extend your gallery or your images uploaded onto a new gallery in the future there is an archival fee. But it's not the photographer's job to achieve your images after delivery.
As the photographer and the one who snap the pictures, I own the copy rights. You are able to use the images for personal usage, which is defined and limited to personal social media accounts, decor in the home, personal cards, etc. The photographs cannot be use for any contests, sales/income, marketing, promotion, or commercial use. Upon meeting you will sign a model release to release your photos for usage under my website and social media platforms.
As the photographer, my images represent my business and brand in which I only give images that I have edited/retouched and do not give any unedited images to clients. The entire editing process takes time so it is required that you do not edit the images yourself or add filters. My editing style is timeless, warm, light and vibrant. The images you see on my website are what you will similarly receive in exposure, tone and contrast.
Prints and canvases, in various sizes, can be ordered directly within your online gallery store. It is recommended to print within the gallery store for the best possible quality and color result. Other print centers or companies may negatively impact the quality; pixelation, color, etc. Clients are given freedom to print their images anywhere (for personal use only), but Julia Romano Photography does not have any affiliations with other companies nor is responsible if other print companies or centers are not up to standard with quality, coloring, pricing, or if you have issues with another print company's print results. Custom photo albums can be ordered upon request. The album design process is a full service creation by Julia Romano Photography and a proof is sent to confirm with you. Many cover options and additions are available.
There is a $35 reschedule fee for rescheduling due to non-weather related reasons, as soon as I receive your deposit to reserve your session date and time I have to turn other clients away who may have requested the same day and slot time. I'm always checking the forecast to keep my clients updated as possible on weather.
