FAQ

 

 

How long have you been shooting? 

Marlene's Photographic journeys began 40 years ago, while Suzanne and Gary began their journeys in High School, and as a company we have been capturing Professional, Artful Photojournalism since 2003! 

What is your style? 

Our style of Photography definitely falls in the lines of Photojournalism and Documentary! While we do focus on multiple genres of the Art, our style is fluid no matter what we are capturing and we stay well versed on the latest trends for all of our specialties! 

Do you shoot Digital or Film? 

We shoot both actually! Our company began completely film based, but with the wave of the digital revolution and all of it's possibilities, we primarily focus on digital works these days, though we absolutely love the organic quality of film!

Do you shoot Black & Whites? 

Absolutely! We offer complimentary black and white conversions to all of our subjects for any style of Photography, all you have to do is ask! 

What equipment do you use?

Throughout our careers we have used so many different brands, but we're personally partial to Canon's pro equipment! 

How many Weddings do you shoot a year? 

That all depends on our clients! We took a little bit of time where we only shot 5 Weddings per year, but these days we put our focus on 20-30 Weddings per year which is a perfect number! With our emphasis on providing the ultimate experience for all of our couples, staying within this idea allows us to give our 100% attention to all details surrounding this most special time in our Couple’s lives!

Do you work with non-agency Models?

Currently yes we do! We absolutely LOVE working with all Models of various experience levels as they work towards their dreams and have found many unsigned Models that are Top Notch Professionals! Signed Models are a given, and Models in pursuit of a career and just beginning are also welcome.

What’s involved in Production, Retouching, & Edits?

Unless Same Day Photography is requested (typically for Weddings) she does not batch edit images, instead she uses her Professional Techniques in Photoshop and Lightroom, hand editing each selection to perfection! After many years, she’s got quite the detailed eye, and she doesn’t believe in batch processing for Poshtography.

Did you Know?

Production, Retouching, and Edits are where the real ‘Work’ begins for us. Suzanne Simone has been working with both Photoshop and Lightroom for years and is old school as she hand edits each individual image as opposed to batching them through one action. It’s her style and Professional Choice in providing this Top Quality to everyone. She values this Professionalism for continued success highly!

For each individual order she will invest anywhere from 10-100 hours off the Job in Professional Retouches and Editing depending on the order size and extent of the content.

Even when capturing Photography through the lens the right way it’s this finesse and precision that makes magic happen!

Do you give away RAW, un-edited Images?

Since 2003 it has not been our practice to give out any un-edited work. With the exponential rise of Social Media and Technology, we have to maintain consistency across the board in all platforms. Think of the un-edited proofs as your digital negatives. Even if we were to give Digital Negatives, there would be an additional charge for this option.

So what are you waiting for? Please call us at 303.999.8894 so that we can begin to make the magic happen!!!
