Frequently Asked Questions - Nightshade Photography





What kind of photography sessions do you offer?

I offer professional artistic photography for couples, maternity, newborns, children, families, professionals, equines, pets, seniors, engagements, weddings and boudoir.       


How far do you travel?

I am currently located near Grass Valley, Ca. I will include up to an hour of travel time each way with your shoot. This includes Grass Valley, Nevada city, Auburn, Penn Valley, Roseville, Sacramento, Truckee and Marysville. I will go as far as Reno, South Lake Tahoe, the Bay Area and beyond for an additional gas fee. If in doubt, please feel free to contact me. 


How much are your photography sessions? 

$300

This includes 1hr of photo session time, multiple outfits possible. 

 With a guaranteed 30+ fully edited photos on two private online galleries.  Web size photos are shareable, downloadable and available to use as soon as the gallery is up.

I also include a print size gallery that includes a shopping cart with many photo buying options through quality printers at an affordable price point. The print size gallery is shareable to make it easy for friends and family to buy prints as well. The print size gallery is not downloadable.

If you would like to make prints elsewhere, 300dpi digital copies are available to download for $20 per digital file download. 

Both galleries are guaranteed online for 1 year from time of receiving photos. 

*up to an hour of travel time each way included*


~Discounts I offer~ 

$100 off when paying for 2 sessions up front.

Example~ Maternity and Newborn. If you pay for both sessions up front at your maternity session you save $100 and have priority booking for when your newborn arrives. 


Now offering Mini Portrait Sessions!!

Mid-week days only, not available on weekends.  Just like the regular portrait session but half the time and price.

1/2 hour of photo time with 15+ guaranteed photos for $150.   *Not available for newborns or boudoir. 


How long will it take to get my photos back?

Portrait sessions are around 2-3 weeks, weddings are guaranteed within 6 weeks.        


How much is wedding photography?

I charge an hourly fee for weddings, allowing clients to choose the right amount of hours for their needs and budgets.  I charge $300 an hour and have a 2 hour minimum and a 10 hour maximum. I require a $200 non refundable retainer to save the date which does go towards final payment and signing of a basic contract.

Most of the weddings I photograph are around 125 people or less and based mainly outdoors. I photograph a lot of non traditional weddings, though traditional is great as well. If you have a long wedding in a dark indoor venue you may want to consider a different photographer that has more lighting equipment than myself.

Guest list is 25 people or less $250 hr

Midweek or Sunday Weddings $250 hr

Bride or Groom are Military-$250 hr   

Bride or Groom are Seniors $250 hr

$50 off any engagement or boudoir session added to a wedding booking.

Photos are guaranteed within 6 weeks of event date. Photos will be available on two private online galleries. 

The first gallery is web size. It is shareable and downloadable and available to use as soon as the gallery is up. 

The second gallery is 300 dpi print size with a shopping cart option that includes many quality photo options at reasonable prices  . The print gallery is shareable to make it easy for friends and family to buy prints. The print size gallery is not downloadable.

*If you would like to make prints elsewhere, 300 dpi digital files are available for $20 per file download in the shopping cart.
