WHY AMY WEISS PHOTOGRAPHY?
Any photographer can take great pictures when all of the conditions are right, but what separates Amy Weiss Photography from the rest, is that you get the pictures you want even if everything goes wrong. We help our clients plan and create the photos they have in mind from start to finish, providing a much more collaborative and professional experience than most photography services. We’re also transparent with our prices and will never charge you a separate fee to receive your gallery.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear something you feel great in. When you know you look good, the camera has a way of showing it. Neutrals and saturated colors like ruby red, emerald green, mustard yellow, and sapphire blue won’t appear too bright or too muted against most backgrounds, and they look great with all different skin tones. If your background is lighter, colors like black and navy blue are okay too, just keep in mind the aesthetic you’re going for and make sure these colors align. If you decide to go with a print, the larger the better. Try coordinating a color scheme with your partner or mixing textures. Always avoid tiny prints, stripes, and neon colors.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
Photos from most sessions will be delivered within 2-3 weeks. Wedding photos will be delivered within 6 weeks of your wedding day.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE?
Every photo session varies but we provide each client with all of the best photos from their time with us. On average most galleries are around 40 - 60 photos per hour of coverage. Weddings may include a bit more depending on whether or not an additional photographer is hired. Some things we look for to determine the photo is one of the ‘best’ are story telling elements, quality of the images, candid moments, and requested imagery.
HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR DATE?
In order to officially reserve my services for your photo session, event, or wedding date, a non-refundable retainer fee is required, along with the signing of my contract. This amount will be half of the total amount of your session. Your final balance is due no later than the day of your session. Payment plans are also available if needed.
WHAT OTHER SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
When you book a photo session with me I will consult with you as much as needed on everything from wardrobe choice, location, timing, and concepts. I can even recommend several amazing and affordable vendors within the central Texas area to save you some legwork while you plan your event or wedding.
If you're interested in creating printed albums, canvases, and more with your photos, the gallery I deliver will provide options for you to customize any project you can think of. I am also available to help walk you through how to do this when the time comes.
DO YOU BACKUP YOUR PHOTOS?
Absolutely. I shoot with dual card slots so each photo is automatically backed up the moment that it’s captured. I also backup all photos in multiple locations immediately following a session or wedding.
WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE?
I work with a variety of professional camera equipment that includes two full frame Nikon cameras, several prime and zoom lenses to cover any type of coverage scenario, and elite lighting gear. I also partner with several local Austin vendors to help clients source props when requested.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yep! I have liability coverage and all of my gear is insured.
WHAT LOCATIONS ARE AVAILABLE?
Feel free to choose the location that suits you and your needs best. We’ll help inspire you by providing a range of location ideas throughout Austin and beyond. Whatever look you’re going for, whether it be a nature setting, urban, contemporary, rustic, or artsy, we can help you nail it. Visit the Client Lounge after you’ve reserved your date and browse through over 100 hand-picked locations you can choose from. If you don’t see the location you’re interested in then let us know and we’ll work with you to get any necessary permits to photograph there.
HOW ARE TRAVEL FEES ESTIMATED?
Most photo packages already come with 10 - 100 miles of travel from downtown Austin included. If the location you would like to photograph at is outside of your included mileage, you can purchase additional travel for $1/mile.
CAN I RESCHEDULE?
Yes. There is no fee to reschedule due to weather conditions, however, we do ask that you please let us know as soon as possible if wanting to change the date of your session as there may be limited options available to reschedule. Please see your contract for more details on cancellation and rescheduling policies.
