Where are you located?
J. Delia Photography is based out of Barrie, Ontario. 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. Lifestyle sessions are also subject to a 25% retainer fee and outstanding amounts are due on the day of your session. Boudoir sessions are booked with a session fee (makeup/studio time) then you have the opportunity to choose your overall investment (number of digitals/products) at your reveal appointment.
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 which outline every detail big and small that we can plan for. As for standard sessions, nothing looks better than some well coordinated outfits. We can provide you with suggestions and examples if you want help with this. All boudoir clients receive a 5-page prep guide upon booking in with tips to prepare, what to expect at your session, the overall process, and more.
Do you have different packages available?
We offer three standard collections for weddings based on coverage, number of digital images, engagement session, second shooter option, and more. Please contact us for more information on weddings. A standard package is offered for lifestyle sessions including families, newborns, and branding. A smoke bomb session is priced separately. Mini sessions are only offered throughout the year (typically spring, fall and winter). Boudoir sessions range based on number of digitals/products chosen at your reveal appointment, however, most clients spend between $800-1,200.
How long will it take to receive my gallery?
Please allow a 3-5 week timeline from your wedding day to receive your gallery. “Sneak peaks” are sent within the following week. All other sessions may take up to 2 weeks for gallery delivery. Remember to plan your session ahead of time so you have plenty of wiggle room for plans with the final gallery. Please note that prints/products take between 2-3 weeks from design to delivery.
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/develop your own products but J. Delia Photography is NOT responsible for the quality you receive from another lab. We highly suggest adding on prints/products to your session 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 online 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.
