I’m ready to book my photo shoot. What’s next?
Simply contact us and we’ll respond generally within 24 hours with an outlook of availability. The sitting fee is required in full in order to be placed on the calendar.
I have tummy rolls/cellulite/acne/eye bags etc., can you fix that?
While we’re not big believers in editing you past the point of recognition, between editing, great posing, light and amazing stylists, we’ll take care of you. You can view the Before + After gallery for some examples.
What should I wear?
All of our sessions include a consult to discuss your wardrobe and design your session.
How far advance do I need to book?
Depends on the time year, but we generally book anywhere between 1-3 months out.
How long before I see photos from the session?
We will do a Reveal of your images with you back in the studio about 1-2 weeks after your session.
Do you ever shoot on location?
Yes. Depending on your shoot, we’ll determine how much will be added to your session.
Can I bring a friend/significant other/child to my shoot if they’re not part of the session?
I would like to use my own stylist for my session. Can I bring them to the studio or get styled beforehand?
Due to past experience with stylists who may be a great choice for everyday styling or special events, we’ve found not every stylist has the knowledge/skill to style for a photo shoot. Because of that, we no longer work with stylists who haven’t be pre-approved to work with Verle Obri Portraits.
Do you photograph children, or families ?
We do, but it depends on the number of family members
Do you shoot weddings or couples?
Couples—yes, weddings…no. We will do engagement shoots and elopements, pricing falls under what we charge for a normal Portrait Session (if doing studio) or a Destination Photo Shoot. Please note, shooting includes that of couples only, not the inclusion of children or family members.
How long does a portrait shoot take?
It varies because of many factors (styling, possible locations), but generally anywhere between 3-4 hours.
What if I don’t like my images?
If for some reason you don’t like any of the images from your session, you’re not obligated to purchase anything. Unlike most studios, we don’t make you commit to a package before you’ve seen the images.
Do you do Senior Portraits?
Yes. For the most part we cater to women but if a female high school student wants our photography for her Senior pics, that’s fine.
Do you ever do full portrait shoots with men?
Yes, most often for Personal Branding Sessions.
