Frequently Asked Questions
What should we wear?
For family portraits you don’t have to all wear the same outfit or matching colors. Though solid colors work best, each member of the family should feel free to express their own style. Keep in mind, you should wear something that you’re comfortable in and that makes you feel your best. Consider wearing that color that you always get compliments in.
This advice goes for engagement and individual portrait sessions. But for corporate and headshots, appropriate attire for your field should be worn.
How do we select a location for our photo session?
During our initial consultation we can discuss what your preferences are. For example, for engagement sessions we try to select a location that may have a special meaning to you both. We can select a nice park setting or beach. If you have a preference, just let us know or we can make a few suggestions. Keep in mind that some parks and conservatories require a permit for photography. If this is the case, it will be your responsibility to hand the cost and secure the permit. There are several nice locations here in the northern NJ area that are permit-free.
How much time will our session be?
Session times can vary depending on the package you book, but portrait sessions can last from 1-2 hours.
What is the booking process?
Please give us a call at 201-407-9502 or email us at info [at] maryphotography dot com. We can set up an in-person consultation or do one via Skype. The consultation helps with determining what collection or package will be best suited for your needs and expectations. A non-refundable retainer along with the signed contract agreement will secure your appointment. In case of cancellation, the retainer can be applied to another date, as long as it’s within 1 year or the original date.
