I don’t know how to pose myself. Do you help us with that?
Absolutely! Not many people know how to pose themselves naturally in photos. We will explain and show you all of the posing that will be required to help show you look your best during your photo shoot!
How long does a photo shoot take?
The length of a photo shoot depends on a few factors, mainly being how many people you are bringing to your photo shoot. We normally allow between 1 – 2 hours for your photo session.
What should I wear to my photo shoot?
This will be discussed with you during your photographic consultation or over the phone prior to your photo shoot, as it depends upon the theme(s) and style of photographs you want to create. You’ll also receive our Zanzucchi Photography Portrait Style Guide that’s packed full of great tips on selecting the proper clothing for your portraits.
Will my photographs be retouched?
Yes, all of your photographs are masterfully retouched to your satisfaction. Your images are custom created by Ross. Not only is he a Master Photographer, he is also a Master Re-toucher. He wouldn’t think of letting anyone else put the finishing touches to your portraits. We will discuss with you during your viewing what level of retouching you would like…a little – or a lot. It’s up to you!
How long does it take to process my order?
During the viewing of your photographs you can make your choice as to your preferred photographic presentation options. Once you have decided upon your chosen photos and confirmed your order it normally takes us approximately three weeks to complete. Please have this in mind if you require your photos for a specific date.
Why do you refer to photography as an investment?
An investment refers to something that appreciates and gains value over time, like a house or stock shares (hopefully!). Sometimes they go up and sometimes they go down. We offer you something far better than that and with a guaranteed upside.
Photography is a way of capturing special moments between you and your loved ones forever. These images will never age! So, similar to a more traditional form of investment, your photos will increase in value to you for years and years to come. The only time you lose is when you fail to invest at all!
How much does it cost?
This depends entirely upon what kind of products and photographic presentation options you would like to invest in. However, we have products to cater for all budgets – both big and small! Prices will be discussed with you during your no-obligation design consultation or prior to your photo shoot. You can also enquire about our flexible payment options.
Will anyone else see my photographs?
Only if you allow us to show them. For all of our promotional images (including on this website) we have obtained permission from the client allowing us to use their photographs.
You are under no obligation to have your photos shown to anyone else, and if this is the case, you will be the only one to see them.
What if I don’t like any of the photographs?
The only photographs you invest in are the ones that you love. To assure you that you will love all of your photographs, you will be viewing them on a large monitor as we shoot. You will leave knowing we captured the images you really want. You have no obligation to purchase any images that don’t feel like the right ones for you.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa / Mastercard and Discover payments as well as cash and checks.
