~Justyne Edgell Photography and Design~
A few commonly asked questions to help you, before you book, before your session and what to expect after!
"What is your style as a photographer? Posed, candid, fly on the wall?"The answer is all of the above! I like to use prompts instead of poses, so that I can capture all the in-between moments that best show your authentic selves! Saying that, we will also do some, classic posed shots (I like to call these "the ones for grandma to put on her fridge), and if you want me to be a fly on the wall for a secret proposal, I can totally do that too!
"What is the best time of day for photos?"
From my perspective, I'm quite happy taking photos at all times of day! This really comes down to the vibe you'd like for the photos. Many people love the look of sunset. It's often darker, moodier and more romantic than the bright and colourful mid-day light. Photographers have tricks to position our subjects in a way that we can get great results from all sorts of lighting situations!
"What is your editing style?"
I love warmth and bright colours. I once had someone tell me that my photos were bright and vibrant and I instantly felt that that comment so perfectly fit my work and what I was trying to portray.
"What should I wear for my session"
Whatever you feel comfortable in! Now of course there are things like colour coordinate, don't wear big patterns, but the truth is to make sure we get photos authentic to you, you need to feel comfortable. My recommendation is to look up some photos with outfit combinations that you like and try to replicate it. And, I am always happy to chat about your outfit choices pre session. I'll also encourage you to check out this guide which may give you some outfit inspiration!
"How many photos will I get in my portrait session"
I like to estimate about 45 in the half hour and about 70 in the hours, but what I've discovered is that I am a bit of a serial over deliverer. It's not uncommon for you to get about 70 photos in the half hour! It really depends on how many poses/prompts we get in, if I'm shooting details, if we're moving locations, if you have kids or pets that take a bit of wrangling etc.
"Can I tell you if I want something specific?"
YES! Please do! I want to make sure I am serving you to your greatest expectation! If you have been browsing Pinterest and have some ideas of your own please share! I would love nothing more than to give you perfect photo memories for you to look back on.
"When and how will I get my photos?"
I deliver photos to my clients in online galleries, to which you will be provided a link, or a through a password accessed page on my website. You can expect your photos two weeks after your session for regular sessions and one month for weddings.
"Do you mind if I bring my dog?"
PETS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME! With discretion of course as it's probably best for you not to bring your horse to the public park... But, yes, pets are always welcome in my photos!
"How would you like me to pay?"
Etransfer is often easiest however I will also accept cash. All bills will now include 13% HST on top of the service price.
