FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you offer Bridals and/or Engagement sessions?
Yes! Of course! We offer many types of portrait sessions. For pricing, please view either the FAMILY investment page or the SENIOR investment page to find a session that best suites what you are looking for, and please send me and email to inquire about bundling and receive a discount!
The Process- For all portrait sessions
1. Pre-shoot Consultation
Between 3-6 weeks after your session, an email will be sent to you with your password, letting you know that your gallery is available to view. You will be able to download low resolution images, order prints, pin to Pinterest, all from this gallery.
Your session will only be live on the website for two weeks if your session is between January and May.
4. Ordering Consult
5. Receive Prints!
RETOUCHING- Photo retouching, sometimes called retouching or airbrushing, refers to the process of manipulating photographs in order to slightly change the looks of a subject. This includes basic “fixes”, like erasing pimples or making a ruddy complexion appear even.
Retouching of any image is included when a print is purchased of that image. You will not see any "retouching" on your image gallery, retouching is reserved for print purchases only.
What TIme should I have my ceremony to allow for photos after the ceremony?
This is a very important question! Consulting with your photographer to insure your special day goes perfect is a necessity. I would begin your ceremony two and half hours before sunset to insure enough light to capture your wedding party after the ceremony. This can be shortened if you are doing first look, otherwise please allow for plenty of time to ensure the best quality of photos.
When should I book my Wedding with Callie Beth Photo?
As soon as possible! Dates for any session or wedding book all the time and unexpectedly. Booking as soon as you can and placing your deposit ensures your date it safe!
When should I book my engagement or bridal session?
On an average 12 month wedding planning schedule, engagement session is done 6-9 months prior to your wedding date, and bridals are done 1-3 months before your wedding date.
What is a Pre-shoot Consultation?
A Pre-shoot consultation is a meeting that happens before your photoshoot happens. This meeting is complimentary! You get one-on-one, face to face time with me to ask any question you can think of about your session. This is also when you will book your date. Please note each package has a different amount for the non-refundable deposit. The deposit is deducted from your grand total and one paid, it secures your date. If you choose to move your date, you may pick any date that is avaliable.
Do you offer hair and makeup?
Yes! I have set up local vendors around DFW to be available for Callie Beth Brides. If you aren't sure if you want hair and makeup at the pre-shoot consultation, you can always purchase hair and makeup options later, but please tell me ASAP so you can be issued an appointment. If you book your make-up and hair too late, I can not guarantee an artist had availability. You will be given your make-up artist contact information but I will handle the scheduling and confirming between the two parties.
What do I wear?
That is a great question! Planning out your senior picture outfits, or any portrait outfits can either be really exciting or really difficult. To help you in this process just remember to "Layer the CAT!"
COLOR | ACCESSORIZE | TEXTURE
Color-Try to stay away from white if possible. White, flowing dresses in a bright field is very popular but if you layer the dress with a colorful cardigan and a fun hat then it will photograph better!
Accessorize- This is a great way to spruce up any outfit. Chunky necklaces, floral scarfs, a floppy hat, are all easy, inexpensive ways to add to a simple outfit to make it special.
Texture- An example of adding texture to your outfit would be a chunky knit sweater, shirts with patterns like plaid, or a fur vest. If it feels like it has texture then that is what your looking for!
Layer- Now take all that you have learned from above and layer, layer, layer!

What if it rains?
The general rule of thumb is, if it is raining at noon on the day of your session, the session will be canceled and rescheduled for a later date. I am more then willing to book your new date as quickly and efficiently as possible. But when rescheduling please be aware that editing and turn around times will be adjusted according to your new date, and the amount of current work Callie Beth Photo + Design has at the time.
