Every photographer is unique
Every photographer has their own style. Match your personal taste with the right photographer’s style by reviewing both their profile and portfolio. Keep in mind that it is also customary for a photographer to propose different shooting times based on the type of session you are interested in.

Before the Shoot
Your photographer will send a message to you to arrange when and where to meet, plus confirm shoot details. We will send you a confirmation email that includes session details and the photographer's contact information. You can view your ongoing reservations details in the calendar section of your personnal dashboard - to see all the details just click on the event or head to the upcoming shoots page in your dashboard. Need to modify or cancel? Life happens, so if your plans suddenly change, you can cancel or modify your booking from the upcoming shoots page in your dashboard.
During the Session
At the beginning of your session, your photographer will ask you for your unique payment code located on your booking confirmation email or the upcoming shoots page in your dashboard. There is no need to print this email. You can simply use the email from your phone or tablet to validate the code with your photographer. Once you have validated your payment code, all you have to do is enjoy your session. Contact us if you have any problems with your validation code. Tip: if you require WIFI to access emails, take a screen shot of your confirmation email or write it down on a paper before leaving a WIFI zone.
After the Session
Write a review on your photographer & his work so that others can learn through your experience. Your photographer should get back to you usually within the next 15 days with your photos (variable on the type of photo shoot). Depending on the photographer & type of shoot you might meet him again in person to review the pictures together or access them through a web gallery. Every photographer has a different approach so check with him if his profile was not clear enough. Now it's time to plan your next session!
