If you're interested in getting a wax done for your shoot, Contact Dorian Sullivan at Wax Girl. Dorian does mobile service, so she can come to you. Just make sure you get your waxing done at least a couple days before your shoot!
How do I setup an appointment?
First, take a look at the calendar to see when we are free. Second, send us an email to setup the appointment! It's that easy!
Is there a guarantee?
Within reason, I will always try to make you happy!
When can I view the photos?
While all photography is done with professional digital equipment, online proofs will not be viewable until they have been reviewed and optimized. Time permitting, you may see your raw images immediately after your shoot. You will be told at the photo session when to expect your proofs to be ready and will also be notified when they are.
What happens to the digital files?
They are available to purchase per the price list. The will be kept online for 2 months and then archived for two years.
How long does it take to get my finished photographs?
We employ a professional print lab that meets our quality standards and normal turn-around is one week from ordering, 3 day turn-around is possible for a $30 rush fee. Custom photographs or extensive retouching may extend that time.
