AFTER YOUR SESSION
- Artistic Selection and Retouching
Part of the experience of an Intimate Session is the artistic eye of the photographer. Though the camera will click away throughout your photoshoot to capture as many images as possible, we only ever include the very best in your gallery. Following the session, each image will be subject to our selection process, permanently removing closed-eye shots and unflattering moments so that you will only ever see the photographs that meet our high standards. This artistic selection process is part of the custom portrait process and entirely the right of the photographer.
The images you select for your products will be hand-crafted to perfection in our digital darkroom. It is our policy to only retouch temporary flaws such as stray hairs, acne and bruises and provide skin softening and correction, unless specifically asked otherwise. If you would like to remove a scar or birthmark, please let us know. We can usually remove tattoos from your images at a $25 charge per image. Please note that tan lines are usually not possible to remove during the retouching process.
- Your Gallery
The best images from your Intimate Session will be available for you to view within 7 days of your photoshoot. We make these proofs available only to you, through a password-protected, fully private gallery.
Your gallery will be available for 5 days during which time you can make the image selections for your chosen product. We require that you to make this selection within 5 days at the end of which time your gallery will expire. If your selections have not been made before this time, we will arrange an appointment for a private viewing at the studio for your final selection. Please be reminded that copying, saving or printing the proofs in your gallery is a violation of Federal Copyright Law.
Once you have made your selections, we will custom design your album and proofs will be made available for your approval. During this process, you will have the opportunity to request changes to the design and new proofs will be available. Once we have received your final approval, we will proceed to print production.
- Production and Delivery Time
Your product payment, along with 13% HST will be requested as you finalize your order. Due to the nature of custom portraiture, all sales are final.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for your products to be delivered. Rush orders may be available upon request. Your products can be picked up directly from the studio or we can ship them to you. A $20 fee will be added for shipping.
- Presenting your Album
We have created an article of fun ways to present your album to your significant other. Have a read here and have fun with it! We always love seeing their reactions, so snap a few pictures of him receiving his gift and send them to us so we can see the moment!
