How it Works

Your Experience

When choosing J. Andrade Visual Arts to capture your portraits & weddings you get the full photography service experience. 

What does this mean? 

Initial Consultation

You talk, I listen. We take notes and we brainstorm together. I prefer meeting in person when possible to get more familiar with each other. This will help you feel more comfortable around me for your session which is very important. It also gives you a chance to look and hold all the products to help you decide how you will be displaying the images we create together. I recommend doing this meeting no later than two weeks before your session but not required. A non refundable deposit and signed contract is due at this time to save the date. The deposit will cover shooting & editing time as well as the reveal/ordering session.


the session

You will get to see me flat on the ground, balance on a step stool, sweat quite a bit, and do or say whatever to get that perfect shot! Make sure to bring a change of outfit if any, your loved pets and any cool or meaningful props you'd like to incorporate. I always like to have a back up day in case of terrible weather (although I have shot in the rain before so don't let that stop you) or other emergencies. Your session takes place at a location of your choice. If you can't think of where to go I am more than happy to recommend some cool spots.

reveal/ordering session

About one to two weeks after your session, 4-6 for weddings, we will view your gallery together in the comfort of your own home or favorite place. At this time you will choose the photos you want to display in your home and or gift to your loved ones. All purchases are an additional cost, meaning no images are included with your session fee. I want you to leave with everything you want and nothing you don't absolutely love. Once your products are paid in full, I will place the order and deliver it right to you!
