Frequently Asked Portrait Questions

How do book Terry & Sarah Photography for a photo session?

In order to book us we must have received the required retainer (50% – 60%) and a signed contract.  If we have not received both then your date is not considered reserved.

Is there a travel charge?

Yes and no.  Booking us means we would meet you anywhere from Kitty Hawk, NC to Nags Head, NC at no extra cost.  If you’re on the Outer Banks and from Southern Shores, NC to Corolla, NC or on Hatteras Island then there is a travel charge. If you’re in Carova, NC (also known as the 4×4 area north of Corolla) there is a travel charge for us travelling to Corolla and then we expect either travel arrangements to be made for us or our cost of making our own arrangements covered to get to Carova.

Will Terry and Sarah be my photographers or will it be someone else?

You will always have Terry or Sarah (or both of them if you booked two photographers) when you book us.  With that said, we do have other professional photographers who are ready to fill in in the case of an emergency or illness.

Who does all the awesome editing for your photos?

Terry does all of the editing from start to finish, although Sarah is involved in the process of sorting, organizing, and deciding which photos will receive the most love.  We do not outsource our photo editing, which has become a common practice today; we love our art too much to ever do that.

How many photos will I receive?

A typical family session would result in  50 to 60 images with 10 to 20 of those being given a lot of love.
