Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book a session?
Book a session via our contact page or email TAM@lovevintage1980.com to check availability. Upon receipt your non-refundable deposit is due to secure your slot. Your deposit is transferable to a different date if you reschedule within 48 hours of your schedule appointment. The remaining balance is due 24 hours before your session date and time. We utilize the Stripe platform to accept payments. Stripe is one of the safest and most secure payment methods available. All major credit and debit cards are accepted.
What can I expect after booking?
I love getting to know my clients up close and a bit personal. For all shoots, you will receive my 'Getting to Know You' questionnaire to ensure that your vision for the shoot is fulfilled. For Speciality Shoots, you will receive a 'Getting To Know You' phone or chat call to learn more about you, your style, and your expectations. For Weddings, Engagements & Boudoir Shoots, I will meet with happy clients over coffee or a tiny meal to more clearly explain the process and the details.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Stripe accepts all major credit and debits cards. I also accept remaining balances in cash. All balances must be paid in full before your session begins.
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably. Whether you choose to dress casual or formal, make sure that you wear clothing that is altogether flattering, comfy, and reflects your personal style. I suggest that if you're taking group photos that you choose complimentary colors and try to avoid wearing matching outfits. If you need ideas check out our Pinterest boards for ideas.
What can I expect during sessions?
Fun, fun, fun! I love to have fun. (Who doesn't?!) So relax and enjoy the attention. Often, during the shoots we will move around a lot so drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Also bring a comfortable pair of shoes to walk in. You can easily swap into your cute shoes, but bring some comfortable shoes in case we have to walk to a location. I also suggest a few incidentals like lip gloss, wipes or tissues, and water.
How long will it take before I can view my online gallery?
If payment has been received, you will receive the link to your gallery within 7-14 days of your session date.
How long does it take to receive printed images?
Printed images will be shipped 7-14 days from your order date depending on the products selected.
How do we get digital downloads?
After you view your gallery you will select the images that you want to download by right-clicking on them and adding them to your favorites. I will send you a link granting you access to download your selected images. When visiting the gallery after downloading access has been permitted, you will see the download icon at the top of the page. Please make sure to pick your favorite images and back them up to a USB, Dropbox, or cloud storage. We purge our files within 30 days of the shoot.
