How far in advance do I need to book my session or wedding?

For portrait sessions, clients can typically book anywhere from 1-6 months in advanced.

For newborn sessions, I suggest that the client contacts me by the 6 month pregnancy mark, we will then set up a flexible session date depending on when the baby arrives.

For weddings, this one really depends on the client, I have brides that will book a year in advance & some that will book 6 months in advance. Please note that I do not take deposits on any weddings that are planned for more than 2 years in advance & also remember that booking 6 months in advance is not always a good idea, the majority of my weddings are planned approximately a year in advance, which means that ‘open’ dates are limited as I only take on 1 to 2 weddings max in a months period.

 Do you travel?

Of course! Traveling to new areas is always a breath of fresh air, lots of new scenery to get inspired from.

What kind of deposits do you require?

For all my portrait work, I require a $75 deposit and for wedding’s I require a $500 deposit. The remaining balance is due the day of the shoot for portrait sessions & 2 weeks prior for weddings.

Can I order prints or albums in addition to my session or wedding?

Absolutely! Professional fine art prints are available for purchase, in fact I recommend anytime a client is wanting an enlargement that they order directly from me, that way I can ensure the color settings are correct & quality of the print is in order. As far as albums, I do offer an heirloom, velvet album which come in 3 various sizes, the album pricing begins at $395 and that includes the professional fine art prints inside the album. You can view the albums here.

How do I book a session?

You will need to fill out the contact form, which is located at the top menu area. Or you can always send an email to: christinablockphotography@hotmail.com, response is given within a 48 hour period.

Do you give out vendor recommendations?

 I do! I am happy to pass along names of vendors that I have personally worked or collaborated with. After booking your portrait shoot or wedding, feel free to email me for specific recommendations & I will be happy to help.

What payment methods do accept?

Cash or check is preferred, however, if you want to use a credit or debit card, you will be able to do so via PayPal.

How long does it take to get my images back?

For portrait sessions, it typically takes 2-4 weeks, usually the 2 week mark, however in the peak seasons months, it can be a bit closer to the 4 week mark. As far as weddings, I know the couple, family and friends are always excited to see the photographs, so I do try to put up Facebook peeks while working through your wedding, however, the final work will be sent to the client by the 8-10 week mark.
