Pricing & Packages
These Sessions include: Maternity, Newborn and Family Photography.
Who says you have to wait for a special event to capture you and your love. Let's adventure to the most beautiful mountaintop at sunrise or take a hike just at sunset.
For all other sessions like Elopement Photography or Senior Sessions, please reach out to me and we can discuss more.
Do you shoot destination weddings?
I do! For more details on pricing, please reach out to me via email and I'll send along my Wedding Day Package Pricing for my Destination Wedding Package.
What are your standard sessions?
Standard Sessions at $350 include:
45 mins-1 hour for Family Sessions, Newborns, Birthday Parties, Gender Reveal Sessions, Engagement Sessions (if you're not booking me for your Wedding), Maternity Sessions, and Social Media Sessions.
Do I have to order prints through you?
Yes, yes, and yes! If you are looking for me to give High Resolution Digitals, I'm not your gal. But, if you ride along with me, you will know exactly why I am SO passionate about your moments and that they deserve to be Fine Art in your Home. All the hours poured into your moments won't mean anything if the end product is sub-par. I have an amazing Lab that prints your moments just the way I meant them to be! With every Fine Art purchase, you get the corresponding Social Media/Web Size image. You trusted me to capture your moments, so please trust me to curate your moments into Fine Art that will be able to be passed down generation to generation. Your Sessions will, however, come with 4X6 digitals to print at your leisure. But the Gift Prints and above, you'll be thankful you printed with my printer!
Why don't you give High Resolution Digitals with your Sessions ?
Great question! I made the switch from Shoot and Burn to Full-Service photographer back in August 2018 and haven't looked back ever since. I am wanting to make sure from start to finish that you are getting the best of the best, and that means getting your moments just right for your home gallery. While this is not the most popular choice, I do believe that your moments deserve to be curated to perfection through America Roe Photography. Trust me, it will be worth it! In a matter of two weeks after your Reveal and Keepsake Ordering Session, your moments will be ready to be hung and enjoyed in your home...verses being put on a zip drive and placed in a computer drawer, left to maybe perhaps get printed in the next year or ten years down the road. Your moments deserve more.
Tell me more about your booking & potential reschedule due to weather, etc.?
The $75 booking deposit, required of all sessions, is nonrefundable, with the exception of rain dates for outdoor sessions. Clients are permitted ONE rescheduled session if rescheduling request is made at least 48 hours before the session. After ONE permitted rescheduling, any further rescheduling (no matter the circumstances) will require an additional booking fee of $75 to hold your spot.
What do I wear to my shoot?
I got your covered! I have a what to wear guide. I'll send it along to help you look great, because your outfits for sure play a part in the over all composition of your moments. I also have a Pinterest Outfit Inspiration Board too!
Will there be a second shooter?
You are welcome to book a second shooter, yes! We can discuss more when we connect on the phone or in person.
What kind of gear do you use?
I use the lovely Canon EOS Mark IV DSLR Camera, along with my 50 mm lens. I also carry along my Canon 6D to make sure I can capture the perfect moments at Weddings.
How many moments come with my Session?
20-30 moments that you will be able to choose to make into Fine Art Prints! Two weeks after your Session, we will schedule a Reveal and Keepsake Ordering Session, where you get to view and then order prints from your Session. It's the best, trust me!
How do you collect payment?
Venmo, Zelle, Check or Cash works just fine! Please see my Terms & Conditions Section for Credit Cards. All Sessions will have a non-refundable retainer, and then your final payments are due 1 week, but no later than 24hrs before your Session.
