Our standard rate does not include a studio. However, if you really want a studio setup for your session, we have two different options:
1) Mobile Studio
Another option is mobile studio at your choice of location. If you do not want to rent a studio, we can help you setup a studio with backdrop and lights at a location of your choice. The cost would be $199 per day.
Advantage of renting a mobile studio is the photographer will come to you. He/she will bring all of the equipments necessary for your photography session. Also since it is your choice of location, you will be more comfortable and at ease for the session.
2) Renting a Local Studio
Studio photography is photography done within a controlled environment, indoors with lighting conditions that are artificial but easily manipulated. Whether you want formal portraits, family portraits, maternity shots, couple shots, newborn photography, food photography, product photography etc. the studio setting with superb lighting, different backdrop options, and a controlled environment can offer the timeless, classic look and feel to your photos.
It is possible to rent a studio - they range in price and size. This is usually a good option if you don't have a good location to setup a mobile studio (i.e. office, house, etc.). However, studios will charge different rates, so be sure to check in with the studio venue. We can book the studio on your behalf for your photo session once you confirm the date and the studio and we can charge the amount to the same card you book with.
