That's a great question! I book my portrait sessions Monday through Friday for the most part. I am a full-time photographer and since I photograph weddings as well as portraits, my weekends tend to be filled with weddings and/or family time! I do occasionally have a weekend date open up here and there--those are first come first serve and weekend rates apply.
Something that best represents YOUR style! You may change outfits if you would like to get two different looks into your session. Ladies- dresses are lovely, just make sure that you are comfortable posing in it both sitting down and standing. Also, heels are wonderful and you should definitely wear them if you would like to. My suggestion would be to bring a pair of flats to switch into for walking around. Ladies & Gentlemen- please avoid any neon colored clothes and graphic tees. Gentlemen- Jeans and a nice dress shirt, polo, or sweater would work perfectly! Families- when shopping for your outfit, start with one and build from there using colors and patterns from the first outfit. Layers are wonderful and are a great way to add pops of color! Try to avoid being too “matchy-matchy” & try using different shades of each color instead of matching each color dead on.
If there are items that are of significance to you and you would like included in your photos, please bring them with! If you have props you made or want to bring, feel free to bring them along and we can incorporate them into your photos! If you have kids, please feel free to bring a cooler with drinks and snacks to keep them hydrated and energized throughout the session.
For portrait sessions, 50% is due at time of booking as a retainer fee. The remaining 50% is due at time of session. For weddings and events, 50% is due at time of booking, and the remaining 50% is due 6 weeks before your wedding or event date. All retainers are non-refundable.
I accept cash, checks (written out to Tamara Jaros Photography), Chase Quick-Pay, as well as debit & credit cards. Receipts will be emailed immediately after a payment is received (even if paying with cash).
The sooner the better! Newborn sessions typically take a little more time and are best done 5-15 days after your baby is born. When you know your due date, please get in touch with me to be sure we get you on my calendar!
My turn-around time for portrait sessions is 1-2 weeks, weddings and larger events are 6-8 weeks. Be sure to check my Facebook page a day or two after your session or wedding as I always post “sneak peeks” to hold you over until you see your final collection of images.
Yes! I include all edited, high-resolution images in all my collections for both portraits and weddings. For portraits, you will receive a download code to use in your online gallery to obtain your images. For weddings, a USB will include all your high-resolution photos. A digital and/or hard copy of a Copyright Release will be given for personal use.
Sure do! I love to travel- it’s nice to be able to experience different places and new locations! I am available for travel for both weddings and portrait sessions.
I most certainly do. I’m more than happy to provide proof of insurance for your venue.
I have a list of other photographers that I have worked with in the past that share the same passion and love for wedding photography that I do. I am part of an amazing network of talented, local photographers whom are more than qualified to assist me in photographing your wedding day.
I have professional Nikon cameras and lenses that I use for all portrait sessions and weddings. For weddings, I have professional flashes and lighting equipment for receptions. I always carry a back-up camera with me to both portrait sessions and weddings.
