How do I receive more info or book a shoot?
To book a session please fill out the “book a session” form under the contact menu.
- How far in advance should I schedule my session?
The earlier the better! We often book out weeks and even months in advance. Fall sessions are usually booked by Summer. Spring Sessions are usually booked during the Winter months.
- How long does my session last?
Most sessions are usually 1.5-2 hours giving you plenty of time to fit in at least 4-5 outfits (depending on how quick of a changer you are!)
- When do I view my pictures?
About 1-2 weeks following your session we will schedule your premier viewing and ordering session where we will present all of your proofs to you, and walk you through all of the collections and a la carte options to find out what best suits your needs. We will also show you all the beautiful heirloom products that are available for you so you can pick out what you love!
- How much does it cost?
A $375 deposit is required to secure your date (this fee is transferrable but non-refundable) the deposit will go towards your session fee and the balance will be due on the day of your session. The session fee includes the pre-consultation, sitting fee and in-person viewing & ordering session. The minimum print requirements start at $500, however most clients choose to invest between $1500 into their senior portrait experience.

We got you cover! with our Vintage Couture Style closet we carry the latest
- Should I get my hair & Makeup done?
We want you to not only look but also feel your best which is why we include hair & makeup with every session! We work with amazing top-of-the-line professional makeup artists & hair stylists who specializes in just that! Feel free to bring your own hair and makeup ideas or leave it up to the professionals to ensure you look AH-MAZING!
- I can’t wait to see my pics! Will I get a sneak peek?
We LOVE Sneak peeks!! And we are just as excited about your images as you are so we always send a sneak peek of an image or three that caught our eye within 2-3 days! Be sure to Like Vintage Couture Photography onFacebook & Follow us on Instagram! That’s where all the behind-the-scenes action and sneak peeks go first! Also, if you post a pic please tag us with #vintagecoutureseniors!
- I’m so nervous about my shoot! Will you give me pose ideas?
Absolutely! We will give you tons of ideas and directions throughout your session to help you feel at ease. We find the best photos to be the candid photos because that is when you are at your most relaxed state. We will coach you along and make you feel like the beauty queen you are, but don’t be surprised if we ask you to walk towards us like you are on a catwalk or give us your ‘soft smile’ aka smirk!
- Who should I bring with me to my shoot?
Feel free to bring mom, dad or a friend as long as you’re comfortable in front of them, if not then you can also come solo! Keep in mind this is also a special, scary, sad, exciting time in mom and dad’s life. Plus they can be very helpful with outfit changes, lip gloss touch ups etc.
- What if there is bad weather on the day of my shoot?
Don’t worry, we always leave 2 days open during the week for reschedules. We will notify you ASAP if we do have to reschedule, however we usually only reschedule if there is either a 50% or higher chance of rain, OR if it’s colder than 40 degrees out. If there is overcast don’t worry your pictures will still look amazing!
- Where do I change my clothes?
Be prepared to turn your car into a dressing room! Most of the locations we are at are private but feel free to bring a towel or blanket to cover up with between changes. Also, we may do some walking so bring a pair of flip-flops for in-between scene changes.
- Can I get a disk of my photos?
We know we live in a digital era and we want you to share your beautiful pictures online as much you do! YES, we will provide you with web-ready digital copies ofany print or product that you purchase. These images have been fully retouched (blemish removal, skin smoothing, color enhanced etc.) and ready for the world to see. We only release fully edited images.
- How long does it take to receive my images?
Once your order has been placed, your beautiful package will arrive within 3-4 weeks, or 4-6 weeks for custom orders.
