Where are you located?
J. Delia Photography is based out of Barrie, Ontario but travel is always available. Standard sessions are available at an indoor or outdoor location of choice, however, areas outside of the home town may be subject to travel fees. Boudoir sessions take place in the home studio.
How do I secure your photography service?
Wedding investments start at $1,900+. A retainer fee (25% of your total investment) is required to secure photography services on your big day. The outstanding amount is due one week prior. All other sessions are subject to 25% retainer fee as well but outstanding amounts are due on the day of session for boudoir, couples and families. Prints and/or products are offered at an additional investment.
Is the retainer fee refundable?
Retainer fees, otherwise referred to as “deposits”, are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
How do I prepare?
Online contracts are sent out for all weddings and boudoir sessions which outline every detail big and small, and also includes tips. As for standard sessions, nothing looks better than some well coordinated outfits. We can provide you with suggestions and examples if you want help then leave the rest to us!
Do you have different packages available?
We offer three standard collections for weddings based on coverage, number of gallery photos, engagement session, second shooter option, and more. Please contact us for more information on weddings. A standard package is offered for boudoir, couples and families. Mini sessions are only offered throughout the year (typically spring, fall and winter) for special events and/or boudoir monthly promos so watch for them.
How long will it take to receive my gallery?
Please allow a 4-5 week timeline from your wedding day to receive your gallery. “Sneak peaks” sent following wedding day. All other sessions may take up to 2 weeks for delivery. Remember to plan your session ahead of time so you have plenty of wiggle room for plans with the final gallery. Please note prints and/or products may extend delivery time.
Can I take the digital files to a photo lab of my choice if I want to print?
You are welcome to print your own photos but J. Delia Photography is not responsible for the quality of prints and/or products you receive from another lab. We highly suggest adding on prints and/or products to your package or after receiving gallery to ensure you receive high quality photos from a company who specialize in printing for photographers. You won’t be disappointed!
How will I receive the photos? Will they be edited?
Every high resolution photo you receive will be custom edited in your own private gallery. Photos can be downloaded using your email and gallery pin once received. As for editing, we use Adobe Lightroom for all of our photography needs. We strive for sharp but moody photos, and try our best to simply enhance the original feel while adding a film look.
Will you post my photos on social media?
Yes. We use photos for marketing purposes only so others can see examples which may help J. Delia Photography grow. Past, present and future clients love seeing your beautiful faces! As for boudoir, you can decide on a full model release, partial model release or none at all.
