Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a custom Wedding Photography Package!
Absolutely! Please contact us for more info!

What are your rates for Weddings and Elopements?
We offer different packages, starting at $1,700 for elopements and $3500 for weddings!

What are your rates for other sessions?

Portrait sessions start at $850 and include 60 minutes of shooting time and an online gallery with rights to print.

Do you have any limits on the number of photos taken during a session and do you edit everything?
There is never a limit on how many photos are taken at a session. When going through the editing process, any photos deemed poor quality by the photographer will be deleted, and the rest edited with basic processing (ie, color-correct, mild retouching, etc). Any extra editing that becomes more involved (such as in depth air-brushing and removing cars and houses, etc) will come with an extra fee.

Where will you travel?
We will travel almost anywhere! Most of our business occurs in North Carolina, but we are up for a flight to Europe, Hawaii, Iceland, or any destination you may have in mind! So far, we've had the privilege to travel for photography to at least 8 different states including Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Texas, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Virginia, as well as various places in Europe!

How do we book & pay?
In order to confirm your date, you will receive a custom contract and payment portal online where you can make a payment for the non-refundable retainer fee via credit card or Paypal. You can pay by check if you are paying in person, but the check must be processed before your date is considered held. We also offer payment plans.

How much is the non-refundable retainer fee and why is it required for booking?
This fee allows us to close the date and time that you want for your session in our calendar, so that no other session is booked during that time. It is 25% for weddings and $250 for session under $1,000.

How many photos do we get?
Each session is different! We typically deliver between 25-50 images per hour of shooting time.

How will the photos be delivered?
Your images will be delivered via online gallery in the form of jpeg images. You may purchase a customized USB for $25. 

Can my friends and family download the photos from your website?
Absolutely! The online gallery that you receive may be shared with the rest of your family and friends!

What if we want to order Prints, gallery wraps or albums?
All orders will go through Melissa Cattani Photography to a professional photo lab. We personally design each Photo Album unique to your preferences!
