HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
Images are provided on an online website that has both web-size and high res versions for you to download and it also has a store for you to buy albums, canvases, prints, Margaritas...... (just seeing if you were paying attention, there definitely aren't Margs for sale on my site, but that sounds so good right now right?! :)).
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHANNON LEA ROCK & PRESERVE STUDIO?
I opened Preserve Studio as a team based Photography & Videography company in 2013, as a team we service California standard and large weddings and commercial projects, with me at the helm of client chats, planning and curation and either myself or one of my associate photographers capturing the big day and your engagement images. And of course, if you opt to, my video team as well. As an individual artist, I take on elopements, intimates, destination, engagements, portraits and branding projects. Whether you have something small or large, we have gotcha covered!
DO YOU TAKE LGBTQ+ PHOTOS?
HELL YES! We LOVE ALL LOVE..... in all its beautiful forms and expressions! Every ounce of who you truly are fills our hearts with joy. We are a diverse team filled with LGBTQ+, non-religious, religious, spiritual, granola, veterans, activists... just a diverse group of artists who love the full spectrum and individuality of all of our clients :) Come one, come all!
HOW MANY PROJECTS DOES SHANNON AND THE PRESERVE STUDIO TEAM DO IN A YEAR? HOW MANY DOES PRESERVE STUDIO DO?
Shannon (lil' old me!) does about 15 elopements & weddings and about 20 other projects, our associate photographers & videographers do about 15 weddings.
book all three services, you are it!). The rest of our work is limited to portrait sessions, commercials and non-wedding thangs!
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE GET?
Generally, let's say 40 images per hour, but your specific package will indicate the guaranteed minimum. We don’t cap at a certain amount of photos, so if there are way more incredible images to give, we will give them :)
DO YOU DELIVER RAW IMAGES?
No, we don't. Every image we take is the base of our art work, as a RAW image is unfinished art, we only deliver the final art piece once edited.
WHAT IS YOUR TURN AROUND TIME?
PHOTO: Engagement/Portraits - 1-2 Weeks. Corp/Print/Product/Editorial - 1-4 Weeks. Wedding/Event 4-8 Weeks. VIDEO: 8-12 Weeks.
DO YOU PHOTOSHOP IMPERFECTIONS?
Not really.... As Shannon says it "You are who you are and I am incredibly honored to capture YOU. So no I won't make you taller or thinner, tanner, or remove those gorgeous wrinkles that represent how long your cute self has been on this planet! I will only remove blemishes like pimples and bruises, temporary things that aren't who you are on this earth!" (This question is for weddings and portraiture, fashion/editorials may be manipulated to better fit a marketing goal and is custom to the project at hand.)
HOW DO I BOOK YOU?
After looking through everything on the website, portfolio pages, and about, please send us an inquiry and complete all info requested through the contact page! Once received we will respond ASAP to get a consult/discovery call on the books. If we click and you want to move forward, a retainer is required to secure your date. No pricing will be given without first having a voice to voice or video call.
WHAT RIGHTS DO WE HAVE?
You have all rights to download, print, and use your photos for personal purposes. Whenever you post online, you are required to tag Shannon and the company since we don't watermark. It's just funky to me when people blast their names on images to us, so instead we ask for credit properly given on your end.
