Belles & Whistles
Please feel free to email me anytime with questions or concerns. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions. Need more details? Don't hesitate. No question is out of the question.
Will you travel?
Yes. I am located in Charlotte, North Carolina however I've done photo shoots in Durham, Winston-Salem, & Charleston just to name a few. A travel fee will be accessed for any shoots or weddings outside of Charlotte.
Are our images included in our package?
Many photographers charge what is often called a "sitting fee". Then there is a separate charge for prints. Then there's another (usually $500+ charge) for a DVD-ROM of images, usually unedited. But wait there's more! If you want your images edited or retouched there's ANOTHER charge and wait on more charge on top of that for THOSE images. This my friends is known in the south as highway robbery.
Here's how I operate:
Your session fee (a.k.a. "sitting fee"), my time behind the scenes editing & retouching your photos. and a private gallery of your edited and retouched photos sized in high resolution are all included in your fee.
Do you offer prints & albums?
Yes! Prints and albums are not included in the digital package but ARE available. Your digital package with Laurel Belle gives you print rights so you can print & use your photos as you choose, HOWEVER I am not responsible for the quality of prints when done through a printer of your choosing (there is a big difference in the lasting quality and beauty of prints and canvas prints printed through Target or Shutterfly versus a professional print house).
You have the option to print high quality prints and canvas prints directly through your gallery.
You also have the option to add on a package at any time before or after your session giving you a great deal on prints and canvas prints.
I STRONGLY encourage you to print your favorite pictures and frame & matte them in a prominent place in your home.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
