Get comfy in front of the camera
I'll guide you every step of the way
My name is Ariana, the creative behind AJP. I live in Augusta, GA with my husband, daughters, and two golden retrievers. I'm a devoted wedding + portrait photographer, expert in making you feel comfortable in front of the camera.
I'm obsessed with my highly refined photojournalistic approach to capturing images. Even if you think you're "awkward" in front of the camera I promise you, I'll break you out of that shell!
01. WHY SHOULD YOU BOOK ME?
This is entirely up to you in the end, but I can tell you what I value.
- Clients who love each other
- Clients ready to have fun
- Clients who respect me, as much as I respect them.
02. PICKING A LOCATION
Location scouting is HUGE part of my business. When you book I'll ask you what you're looking for in your session/elopement location and send you a curated list to choose from. You're also welcome to have your session in a place that may not be "bucket list worthy" but has huge importance to you.
03. BOOKING PROCESS
I always try to make booking as painless as possible. You'll be sent a client area, with a proposal that goes over cost, contract, and how to pay your retainer + set up a payment plan. When you book ANYTHING 40% is due when you sign your contract. Your contract is invalid if the retainer is not paid within 24 hours of signing.
Travel fees? Are they included?
If you're within 50 miles of my home, there are no travel fees. More than that, it's $0.54/mile if I'm driving. Destination weddings/elopements will be charged individually based.
How long will I have to wait for my photos?
I get sneak peaks out within 24 hours - and usually post them to instagram or facebook (and send them to you)
Your full gallery will be ready within THREE weeks.
Do I have to print photos through you?
Nope! You're welcome to use my print shop, but it's never required. Your print release is included in the price and you're welcome to print your photos anywhere - although I cannot vouch for the quality 3rd party printers will give you.
Can we bring our dog?
Hell yes. Always ask, so I can make sure we pick a dog friendly location but I'm ALWAYS okay with dogs or any pets joining us.
How many photos will I get?
I NEVER set a limit, just a minimum. How ever many photos turn out while I cull you get, on average wedding clients get 300-400 images, and session clients get on average 50 images. MINIMUM is 35 images/hour
