I am thrilled you are considering Prochaska Photography and I am always happy to answer any questions! Below are a few frequently asked questions that may help you decide if Prochaska Photography is the right fit, and reach out with any other questions you may have. You can fill out the form at the bottom of the page if you have questions or are interested in booking. Please be patient with me! I am a one person business so it may take a day or two before I can get back to you, but please know that I cannot wait to share your story through photos.
Where are you based and do you travel?
My business is based in Mooresville, North Carolina. I love to travel for photoshoots though, I mean, who doesn't? If you plan on booking a session that requires travel, there may be an additional fee depending on the distance.
How many photos will we get and when will we get them?
The amount of photos you receive really depends on the session that you book. Here is a breakdown of some of my popular sessions and the photos returned: 30 minutes (a minimum of 20 edited photos), 60 minutes (a minimum of 40 edited photos), 5 hour wedding (a minimum of 250 edited photos). The turnaround time also varies. Generally, those who book a 30 minute or 60 minute session will receive their photos within two weeks. For weddings, the turnaround time is generally two months.
How can I pay? Do you have payment plans?
I take a variety of payment options: cash, check, PayPal, Venmo and Facebook Pay. For photoshoots over $200, I do offer payment plans.
Do you charge a booking fee?
Yes, I do - just think of it as a pre-payment! I require a nonrefundable retainer fee in order to hold the date and time for your photoshoot. This payment is factored into the full cost of your session so it is not an additional charge on top of your session fee. The remaining cost will be due the day of your session.
If you cancel within 7 days of your shoot with no plans to reschedule, I will not be able to issue a refund. However, I understand that things happen and if you contact me up to eight days before your session, you can reschedule for free. Additionally, if I have to cancel for some reason, your payment will be refunded.
What if the weather is bad?
I am very flexible when it comes to the weather and I understand that most people do not want to stand in the pouring rain for a photoshoot. There is no additional charge to reschedule your shoot if there is inclement weather.
Do you offer newborn photography?
Newborn photography is really the one area of photography that I do not cover. Your newborn photographer needs to be specially trained to ensure that your baby is safe and won't be posed in anyway that could harm them. However, I do offer sessions for children 3 months and older and I'm always happy to recommend photographers in the area who I know have been trained to handle newborns.
