In order to give you the high quality experience you have been waiting for, it is so important for us to get to know our clients. We are here to create breath taking memories and artwork for you and your loved ones, so we want to know what speaks to you. We may start off communicating via email, but before your session, we will plan a phone or in home consultation where we will get to know you better and identify exactly what you want out of your session! We know everyone is busy, so we respect your time and won't keep you for too long, we promise.
When you are ready to book with MWP, we will send you an invoice for the non-refundable booking deposit, via PayPal. Please pay the booking deposit within 24 hours to hold your date on the calendar. Join our mailing list to be the first to know about special dates and promotions!
During your session, we will provide you with a fun, carefree experience.
We offer both portrait sessions and documentary style photography. During your consultation, we will identify which type of photography you are looking for, and we will be sure to capture the moments that mean the most to you. Session times range depending on the package you choose. While you are in front of the camera, we promise to help you through posing and encouraging natural, candid shots. If there is something you think of or see, please let us know and we will fit in just for you!
To make sure you feel confident and comfortable during your session, we recommend input from the professionals! We work with Kristi Stevens, founder of Shoptini and fashion/lifestyle blogger extraordinaire! She is an incredibly talented stylist and fashionista just waiting for your call to help plan your wardrobe and accessories for your session with MWP. Ask us about assistance with styling your session, hair, and or makeup to complete your experience!
During your consultation, we will discuss how you would like your photos edited. If you would like, we can even do a few different styles and show you examples of them. We will then provide you with your edited photographs in a photo gallery within 5-7 days for portrait sessions and 30 days for weddings other large-scale events! We will not include a watermark on your digital photos, but we do hope that you share your photos with your family and friends, and we ask that you tag MWP on social media! Files from your gallery will not be downloadable, but you can email the viewing gallery link to as many friends as you like! When your loved ones enter their email address to view the gallery of your session, they will be registered for our monthly newsletter. All of the photos in your gallery will be edited and ready for purchase. If you would like any photos edited in a different way, we will take care basic retouching for you at no extra cost! More detailed or elaborate retouching/editing is available for an additional fee.
After your session, you will have the opportunity to view your photographs through swift galleries, either online at your own leisure, or with MWP. Please send us a picture of your empty walls at home, and we can show you what your artwork will look like in your own home, before ever making a purchase! During your in-home (or in-coffee shop) viewing, you will have the opportunity to experience all of the gallery artwork we offer and choose the photos you would like to purchase artwork for! It is important to decide what you want to do with your photography. Are you going to just throw a flash drive into a drawer and possibly never look at it again?! We hope not! Your memories aren't meant to be lost in the shuffle. Instead, we encourage you to hang them up in your home, share them with family members, and give the gift of moments frozen in time. When you purchase artwork, you will also receive a digital back up of your images on a flash drive to keep just in case, but it is immensely important to MaeWood Photography that the love and appreciation of art is not lost in this digital age. During your preview, we will also share with you customized gallery collections we have created for you to choose from at your leisure online, and/or we will sit down with you and help you create whatever you desire for your walls. Stress free!
