Questions & Answers

What do I wear for my photoshoot?

You will receive a guide with tips and recommendations wich help you to prepare for shooting.
My main advice: to choose comfortable outfitwhich brings you joy and highlight yout beauty.

I can help you to choose the best option, just send me photos of clothes & accessories you have. So we discuss together about your style in accordance with the idea of shooting and location. 

Can i get RAW photos?

No, I don’t give the RAW photos.

I want to get all the photos from the shoot. Is it possible?

Sure. I can send you all the good shots from the basic color and light correction for an additional cost. You can choose your favourite pictures to have.

Do I need professional makeup and hair style?

Up to you. Your usual makeup will work for most shoots. But if we are talking about an important event or you want to see yourself in a new light, then you should contact a professional. I can recommend a few MUAH artists that I trust.

I want to keep the shooting confidential and do not want my pictures to be published in your portfolio. Is it possible?

Yes. You can decide on the confidentiality of the shooting during the discussion stage of the photo session. Every client who allows using their photos for my portfolio (website and social networks), I give a 15% discount (see Price). If you change your mind after the shooting and payment of the discount amount, you should make an additional payment up to the standard amount according to the price list.

What does photo processing include?

Photo processing made by me includes 2 stages.
1. Basic correction (color and light correction of successful shots, cropping, toning)

2. Detailed retouching (natural removal of temporary skin problems; work with contours of the body and hair; removal of unwanted objects from the photo (if possible); additional contrast and brightness).

The number of photos is determined by the selected shooting package. You can add the desired number of retouched or corrected images to the package for an additional fee.

It is important to know: when ordering a shoot from me you agree with my style of processing and retouching.

Who chooses photos for correction and retouching?

You can entrust the choice to me or make it yourself.
Increasingly, I trust the selection of photographs to the client. I will upload all the good shots from the shooting with a watermark to a special gallery on my website, which can be accessed through a link. With special mark you can choose the number of photos (according to the shooting package).
For detailed retouching, I recommend to choose close-up portraits or those pictures that need additional retouching.

When will I receive my photos?

I send the first photos (2-3 pieces) the next day after shooting. All photos are ready within 10 working days. If you make the choice yourself, you have 3 days from the date you received the link to make it. Otherwise, in order to avoid a delay, I will select the photos for retouching myself.

You can order fast photo processing (3 days) for an additional cost: + 50% to the cost of shooting.

Do you offer gift cards?

Yes. You can buy personalized gift card or voucher (with nominal from 100 CHF). It can be delivered by post or personal delivery.
