Why choose barnyard?
portrait photography faq
Our company is divided between Nikon and Canon equipment. It’s really a matter of preference between our photographers. Each of our team carries two or three of “everything that matters” so that you are protected from equipment failures and breakage.
Not to worry. We have a large team of skilled photographers. If something happens to your photographer, we have others available for you.o.
We typically wear all black. Our usual dress is black pants, black shirt, and black sneakers. In the summer, we tend to wear polo shirts. In the winter, we tend to wear oxford shirts. As our coverage is very journalistic, and often very active, we do not wear suits & ties while shooting. Female staff may opt to wear dresses.
We complete all of our editing and post-production in about 4-7 weeks. Rush processing is available as an option on your contract.
It’s hard to give a generalization, as every portrait session is different. Typically, you will receive about 60-75 photos per “useful hour” of photography. Remember, time spent driving between locations doesn’t allow us to make images. It all depends on the specifics of your session. Don’t worry about count. It’s the actual events of the day that matter. You will receive the best photos taken, as selected by our staff. As we are judged by the quality of our work, we retain creative control of all photos delivered. Photos that we elect to not include in the delivery set are not available for review.
We are glad to accept a list of family groups that you would like us to take. We are great photographers, but we do not know the people in your families. We even provide a planning tool that allows you to select which photos you would like, and helps to give you a time estimate for your photography. However, please do not ask us to work from a list that you found on a website or in a magazine. We insist on having the freedom to capture your day as it happens, rather than being limited by a specific list.
We include the first 90 minutes of one-way travel at no cost to you. Longer distances may be subject to a travel cost, all depending on your location. Our online booking can calculate a custom quote for you, should you be outside our no-cost range. Travel before and after the event is not counted against your package time. Travel between locations during the event does count against your package time.
We do not offer raw images or raw video. As we are ultimately judged by the product that we produce, we insist on having quality control over the finished product.
We would love to hear from you! Please tell us as much about your event as possible. We answer most messages within a few hours. If you are ready to reserve your date, feel free to BOOK ONLINE at any time.
