Wardrobe and Wardrobe Stylist:
We can't stress the importance of wardrobe enough. Not everyone needs a stylist, but if you question what to wear, or stress out about having the right items, we can take care of that. All you have to do is show up to the shoot, and we'll have all the wardrobe here waiting for you. Our stylist can help take some of the stress away by going out shopping and providing you with wardrobe for your entire session.
1.5 Hour Session - $200
3 Hour Session - $300
4.5 Hour Session - $400
If you have great style in your own closet and don't need a stylist, but rather you just need help picking the right type of clothing, we do offer a style guide in your email confirmation after you book a shoot.
We do offer in-house retouching. Though not mandatory, it is highly recommended to use retouching on each of the final photos from each look. This will provide you with the best results possible.
Always defer to your team on how much retouching they want.
Pricing: $20 Per Retouch. We offer a price break after 5 paid retouches.

Can I bring a Guest to my session?
Of corse, we love having people in the studio. But we do ask that we limit your guests to only those necessary.
We accept all major Credit Cards and Cash. However, we do not accept checks. ( Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Amex )
Hair & Makeup:
Hair & Makeup add on time to the session, and is not taken from the time we booked together. We add on roughly 1 hour in addition to the time of your session.
We do require that you use the Hair and MUA that we have selected. We do this to ensure that your shoot flows smoothly and produces the best results. Because our stylists work so closely with us on a daily basis, we are able to constantly deliver results. The makeup artists stay with you during your entire session. Please arrive with your hair clean and natural.
Under some circumstances we understand that you may be very particular about the stylist you use, or prefer to do it yourself. If that is the case, please call us and we can talk about adjustments to your shoot, and how we can accommodate.
Hair and Makeup Pricing, Starting At: Men - $100 - Women - $175
Pricing increases with the longer sessions and more looks. To see the full pricing structure, visit the booking section of our website.
Archival of Images
If you would like us to keep your shoot on our end as a backup for you, just incase you save over your shoot, accidentally delete it or you computer blows up, we can.
It isn't mandatory, but for a $25 archive fee we will keep you images safe here at the studio and on an offsite redundant drive. You have the option to add this onto the cost of your shoot when you book. If you do not add this option, once we deliver the images to you, we will delete them from our servers.
Studio Light vs Natural Light
We use both, and often a combination of both at the same time. We understand that each option provides a different result. If you prefer one over the other, we are happy to make it happen. Obviously, if we travel on location, we will be utilizing more natural light vs studio light.
Do you shoot in Studio or on Location?
We have an amazing 1800 sq ft studio space in DTLA where we have created all types of sets. We also travel around Downtown to some very cool locations. So I guess the answer is, yes?!?
Each Session Includes, ALL images in High Resolution delivered to you, *free retouching, a shareable online gallery, all in about 72 hours from your shoot date.
