Frequently asked questions

We don’t need an engagement session or consultation. Can you discount our collection?

Sounds like you’re looking for a custom package! Send me a note through my contact form with your proposed custom package, including your price range. You’ll receive a response within a couple business days discussing options. It’s always worth asking!

If my reception or event runs late, will you charge me extra to stay?

I know how hard event planning can be, and usually at least one thing doesn’t go as expected. I’m happy to stick around for another 15 minutes for free, but if we get into the 20 – 30 minute range, you will receive an invoiced for the additional time. All invoices must be paid in full to receive photos. Thanks for understanding!

I think your prices changed since I last looked! Why did that happen?

Nice eye! In order to stay in business, I needed to increase my pricing to help cover editing time.

How many photos will I receive?

The number of photos delivered depends on your session length. Remember, quality over quantity! You are paying me to choose and edit images to produce photos with quality lighting, and no blinking eyes, blurred faces, or other irregularities.

Can I download my photos online? Where can I print them?

All photos included in your online gallery are high-resolution and ready for printing. You will receive a download link for the entire gallery that will stay live for two weeks. Single image downloads will require a password. To keep business costs down, I do not offer prints, but you can print your downloaded photos wherever you prefer!

How long do you keep the original, unprocessed photo files?

I keep the original, unprocessed photo files (the images straight from the camera and unedited in the Siromi Joy style) for one calendar year from the time of the shoot.

How long do you keep the processed photo files?

I keep photo files edited in the Siromi Joy style in the online gallery and my external hard drive dedicated to keeping client photos for five calendar years from the time of delivery to you.

I’m a returning customer. Do you have any loyalty discounts?

Repeat customers receive 10% off their sessions. Thank you for your loyalty. I love working with you, too!

When do I receive my photos?

I do my best to return all edited photos within 8 weeks. Feel free to ping me if you haven’t heard anything 4 weeks after our shoot.

We love your style! Do you travel outside of Columbus, Ohio?

Not at this time.

Do we get to meet before booking you?

In this era of COVID-19, I'm more than happy to jump on a video call with you so we can determine comfort level.

How do we secure our date? When is our remaining booking fee due?

Your wedding is secured once you have paid the non-refundable retainer. For all other sessions, please pay in full prior to our session. The remainder for love story collections are due seven calendar days before your wedding. Please keep in mind that a late fee will occur and no images released until full payment is received.

Do you have payment plans?

We can definitely work something out when we chat about your session needs. Please keep in mind full payment must be complete to receive your images. Late fees will occur if a payment is missed.

How do I pay you?

I accept debit or credit card through my online invoicing system.

What is your equipment?

I use Sony mirrorless equipment, and often shoot on silent to reduce disruption. If you do hear the camera shutter, it’s to ensure my camera can handle my burst shooting so I don’t miss a single detail. I will rent additional camera bodies and lenses for your event if I don’t own them to give you a quality product.

Sony a6300 24MP (2 bodies)

Sigma 19mm f/2.8 lens

Sony 30mm f/1.4 lens

Sony 80mm f/1.8-22 lens

Sony 18-105mm f/4 lens

I don’t like a photo you took of me. What are my options?

I have a liberal “take down” policy. If you see a photo of yourself that you dislike, feel free to message me and I will untag you (Facebook or Instagram) or remove the photo from all my web presences, whichever is your preference.

Are there vendors you suggest looking up for my wedding or event?

Clintonville Woman’s Club (Clintonville, Ohio) is an intimate, affordable location for your event of up to 120 persons. They have an outdoor gazebo, and an entire closet of table decorations for you to use! They provide in-house catering, and lack a liquor license so you can bring your own alcohol as long as you have someone to tend the bar. They’re a wonderful non-profit to support.

Watersedge Event Center (Columbus, Ohio) is a one-stop location, providing spaces for indoor/outdoor ceremonys and reception, with catering, bar, and DJ included. If you’re looking for affordable convenience, this place is great!
