Senior Portraits: RATES & FAQ
Senior year!!! Congratulations! We LOVE celebrating this time in your life with you in such a unique and fun way. It is our goal to provide pictures that not only capture your outward appearance, but to also allow your inner radiance to shine through… to capture past memories of school years, family life and friends.
Your senior portrait experience with us can be broken down into two parts: the session and ordering prints. Hopefully the information below will be helpful for you moving forward.
Like what you see, but want studio too? Tack on studio time for an additional $50.00. (max of an additional half hour)
*$100.00 is non-refundable.
CONSULTATION: Please take a look at your calendar and find a day/time that we can meet for a 20-30 minute consult to:
*Customize your photo shoot experience,
*Set a photo shoot date,
*Sign a photo release so we can show off your pics,
*Answer any questions you and/or a parent might have, and
*Pay the session fee.
We require full payment of the session fee up front to secure your shoot date. That way you will not have to remember money on your picture day while you’re getting yourself and everything ready… don’t worry, we’ll show up even though you’ve already paid!
The session fee generally covers the time, travel and talent of the photographer to work with you one-on-one to create images that are unique to you! It also covers the cost of pre-editing, posting to social media for marketing purposes, your proofing session, etc.
SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION: Come ready to have fun and feel free to bring a parent or friend! For more details on what to expect and how to prepare, please scroll down. Thanks!
Approximately 2-3 weeks after your photo shoot, you and a parent and/or family/friends will be invited to come back to the studio to review your images. No money is due at this point and no print ordering is required yet. This is simply a time to see the rest of your pics and discuss the ordering form/products.
ORDERING: Prints are ordered whenever it is most convenient. You create a print package based off of our rates that is perfect for you.
Half down is required for your print order to be processed. The remaining balance can be paid for upon receipt and satisfaction of your prints. Sales tax of 6.875% will be applied to all print orders. Feel free to view/print the order form via the following links:
Frequently Asked Questions for the Photo Shoot
How should I prepare for my photo shoot?
If possible, I would like to meet you ahead of time. I know your schedule can be crazy busy, but I am super flexible. This initial meeting will allow me to get to know you for a more successful photo shoot. It is also a good time to ask questions and discuss locations and length of your photo shoot.
What should I wear/bring?
When picking out your wardrobe, bring outfits that you LOVE and that scream YOU! Feel free to bring a variety of colors and styles. Some suggestions include: sweaters, tees & hoodies, dresses from prom, heels or favorite shoes, jewelry, necklaces, jeans, accessories, hats... You get the point.
PARENTS!!! You should be involved with wardrobe selection. Students, perhaps you can let mom or dad pick out at least one of your outfits.
Girls, steer clear of strapless tops and spaghetti straps if possible. Also, please bring along a strapless bra to hide those straps. Extra will be charged to edit out straps and there's no guarantee you will like the edited outcome. The same is true for tan lines. Also ladies, I would recommend steering clear of skinny jeans or too tight of pants that do not allow you to sit, squat, etc. or cause your skin to hang over. Pants can be so tricky, but sometimes even going one size up makes all the difference in pictures.
Guys, keep those hats and sunglasses off before your photo shoot. Hat hair and dents around your nose will not be your favorite.
If you are in a sport, dance, band, etc., bring along whatever represents that part of your life.
I would recommend wearing your hair and makeup the way you normally would... If time allows, we could do something crazy when done with the "regular" pictures! Use a de-frizz product to tame stray hairs and fly-a ways. Hair should be done BEFORE coming to your session. Quick and easy hairstyle changes are okay, but it should be quick or you'll lose camera time.
Use a concealer on acne. If you stand 2 feet away from a mirror and can't see it, it won't show in your images. If it does show up, I can easily edit it out with a quick click so don't fret!!!
And don't forget about those fingernails and toenails... Clean them, freshly paint them or file them.
If you are unsatisfied with your pictures due to circumstances beyond the photographer's control (ex, makeup, hair, wardrobe) the photographer is not to be held liable. Be sure you like how you look.
Frequently Asked Questions for Ordering Prints
When and how will I see my pictures? How do I place an order?
Pictures will be available for viewing within six to eight weeks of your photo shoot. You and whomever should be included in the ordering process will be asked to come back to the studio for an initial viewing of your images. You will be provided with a personal proofing website to help in selection of your prints... This link is super helpful to family/friends that live at a distance and want a chance to make selections. A proof book is provided upon request for making notes/keepsake and can be purchased for $50.00.
Prints should be ordered within 2 weeks of the viewing. You can either stop by to place the order (especially if you have any questions) or you can call or email your order to me.
When can I expect my print order to arrive and when is the latest I can order prints?
Please allow 6-8 weeks. Orders must be received by March 1, 2016.
I don’t know the details yet of my graduation/grad party. When should I order my grad announcements?
Please allow 4-6 weeks for design, printing and delivery.
Can I scan my prints or proof book images and upload them to Facebook or other social media?
Because images are copywritten, you may not do so. However, I will gladly upload more edited images once you have placed your order with my logo included and tag you. This way your images will reflect my final product and show you off in a professional way. Please do not crop out the logo.
If I purchase a disc, can I upload those pictures to Facebook or other social media?
Yes! However, we do ask that you include our name (Wicklund Productions, LLC.) in the title so your friends and family know where to go for their senior pictures! :)
Do you have a release form so we can take our prints to another company and order more prints?
No. Purchasing prints does not give you permission to make copies through other businesses, with your own home printer, etc. Again, these images are copywritten. What if I ordered a disc? Yes. By all means, print away!
Do you have a release form so I can get grad cards designed and printed elsewhere?
If you would like to have another company design and print your grad announcements, you will need to purchase printing rights to individual images for $35.00/image. You may not take a print in to another business and have them use the image for cards. However, once you do purchase printing rights, you may also take the electronic image and order prints elsewhere. What if I ordered the disc? Again, yes. Have at it! :)
What kind of editing can you do and is there an extra charge?
Truly, we can do anything from clearing your complexion to removing braces. Examples of editing that is included with your print price are complexion, removal of stray hairs, harsh shadow reduction, black and white/sepia, whitening teeth, etc. What is not included are things like removing braces, bra straps, adding your name/year of graduation to your image, etc. The latter examples will incur an additional fee and require you to request it.
