Top Questions for your Photographer
Where are you based and do you travel?
I am a small town girl and reside just outside of the very well known Niagara Falls, Canada! However, I love adventure and the gift of new experiences. Being in a new place drives my passion and fuels my creativity. I would be happy to custom quote you based on the location of your event and further details.
What are your rates?
Wedding collections begin at $2,700 and portrait sessions start at $400. Feel free to visit my info page to view my collection details.
Can I choose the images that are selected to be used in creating my gallery?
As an artist, there is a definite creative process that happens while I edit and create your collection. Throughout the years I have developed a workflow system and have an entire list of different criteria that I use to determine what photos I choose to include in your final collection. Having the trust of my client is paramount in this working relationship. My aim is to always deliver a collection that contains the best images from our time together. Photos that highlight natural moments, beautiful compositions and most importantly represents me as an artist.
Do you offer add-ons?
Yes, for sure! I believe in the importance of printing your images and I am happy to offer a variety of prints, albums, announcement cards and more. Following any photo session, you are able to order prints and/or products through your online gallery.
What exactly is a print release?
A print release is an agreement stating that I have given permission to the said client to print images from their collection created by me. They are allowed to print at a lab of their choice with no limitations. It is only giving permission to print. It does not give permission to alter the images and/or share with vendors or publications. Also when sharing images on the internet I always appreciate the clients who take the time to give a photo credit to Jessica Little Photography.
Do you photograph weddings exclusively?
No way! Keep reading to learn more about the other sessions I offer. Also, you can spend some time browsing my galleries here.
How soon should I book my wedding photographer?
I always recommend booking your wedding photographer as soon as you decide that you want to work together. Due to the nature of weddings, it really is never too soon to secure your date. Couples often book the venue and photographer very soon in their wedding planning process. Couples are booking on average 8 months to two years in advance. (Please note that no wedding is considered booked until a contract & retainer fee has been paid in full.)
How much coverage do we need?
Although, most of my couples are reserving a minimum of eight hours, I do always suggest my collection that includes ten hours! I have found in my years of photographing weddings that this amount of hours for wedding day coverage is essential in telling the full story. I am able to start the day with you as you finish getting ready, and end the coverage into your reception celebration. This time frame allows diversity and all those little pockets of stories to be told through out your wedding day.
When will I receive my photos?
I take great pride in being a wedding photographer and strive to deliver a collection of images that I am proud of. I like to take my time to make sure that every image in your gallery meets my expectations. Your gallery link will be ready and emailed to you within 4-6 weeks after your wedding.
Where does this session take place?
This session can take place either in studio, at your home or a location of your choice.
Do you offer hair and makeup?
I do work with some very talented hair and makeup artists and would be happy to secure one for your session in advance. (Fees do apply)
When will I receive my photos?
I strive to create a beautiful collection that I am equally proud and excited to share with you. I like to take my time to make sure that every image in your collection meets my expectations. Your gallery link will be ready and emailed to you within 2 weeks after your session.
LIFESTYLE SESSIONS (Family, Maternity, Newborn, Just Because)
What is a lifestyle session?
Lifestyle sessions are portrait sessions that are relaxed, fun and highlight the unique bond you share as a couple and/or family. Throughout these sessions, I encourage a relaxed environment and allow my clients to be who they truly are. This approach allows me to capture some beautiful natural moments.
Where do lifestyle sessions take place?
The most popular location is right in the comfort of your own home. Alternatively these sessions can take place at any beautiful outdoor location of your choice. I always encourage my clients to choose a location of personal significance.
Do you charge a travel fee?
Travel fees may apply for any session booked outside of the Niagara Region. A custom quote would be created based on the desired location of the session.
What is the best time to get a maternity session done?
I usually recommend booking in your maternity session in your last trimester, at about 32-36 weeks along.
What is the best time to get a newborn session done?
It is strongly recommended that you reserve a date within 5-14 days after your baby is born.
