WHY GO PRO?


 

This world is fast.  Fast food, fast fashion, fast photos.  We love selfies, snapchat, and Instagram as much as anyone else.  But remember Myspace?  Flared jeans?  HUGE bangs?  Those are all trends, and just like any other trend, fast photos will eventually go out of style.  We create timeless images that capture your story in a tasteful, fun way that transcends whatever trend is around this week.  Twenty years down the road, Instagram will be gone, but your images from JDP will still be here.  Give us a call and let us create something truly magical for you.

Fresh

Fresh is our line for teens age 13-16.  Our Fresh clients get the basics of our Senior line like hair and makeup, multiple outfits, and awesome images in a mini package perfect for younger ages.  We can't think of a better birthday present for the teen who already has every gadget in the world!

Allure

Allure is our glamour and boudoir line for ladies age 18+.  Glamour is no longer bedazzled denim jackets and frizzy hair.  Think  flowing gowns, gorgeous makeup and hair, and timeless images that you WANT to display! 

Looking for a more "intimate" experience?  Our boudoir line is for all ages and body types to create classic, tasteful, sexy boudoir images to share with everyone or just one person.

FAQS


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

(Q:) How far in advance do I need to book my session with you?

(A:) We recommend booking your session two months before you'd like to receive your finished products.  This allows you time to go shopping for any new clothes or accessories you might want, make any hair or nail appointments, and allows us enough time after your session to order and ship your products.  However, it's never too early to book a session, and getting first dibs has its advantages, so if you know you want to book a session, shoot me a quick email and we'll talk about dates.  We'd love to get you on our calendar!

(Q:) What is included in your packages And how much should I expect to spend?

(A:) Our session fees are vary based on what type of portrait session you are looking to do.  Each session includes hair and makeup, styling, our Pre-Session Consultation, and Premier Ordering Session, plus of course your session!  Each product line (Fresh, Seniors, and Allure) has brand-specific packages that include specialized products for that line.  Saying that, however, most packages include gift prints (wallets, 5x7s, 8x10s), a display item such as a folio or image box, and discounted print credit so you can buy what you need for your home, not what you feel forced into.  Some of our packages also include digital images, so you are able to make additional prints and products from your images.  Our Senior and Allure clients typically spend around $2500 total, with our Fresh clients investing around $1000 for their entire experience.  We use the term investment because you're not just getting a photoshoot.  You're getting our one-on-one attention, a HUGE confidence boost, and heirloom-quality products to keep for generations.    We most certainly offer payment plans, because our main goal, 100%, is for you to get everything you want from your session.  We'll work with you to make that happen!

(Q:) What should I expect from the JDP experience?

(A:)  Sure thing!  We set ourselves apart from other area photographers by providing customized, one-on-one high end service to every client.  We always start with a Pre-Session Consultation where you get to meet our team, see our products and we get to learn all about you so we can give you the best experience during your JDP session.  It's very important because that's where you can see our products for yourself, and we can start to plan the session with you.  At your session you can get ready in our lounge, which features tons of beverage choices and comfy chairs, relax while you get your hair and makeup done by our professional makeup artist, and show off what makes you amazing during your session.  Afterwards, we bring you back for our Premier Ordering Session.  You can see all of your top edited images, pick your favorites to feature, and be walked through the process of choosing products for your home.   It doesn't make sense to us to leave you on your own, so we don't! Everything is catered to you at JDP and we're always available to answer questions, calm nerves (don't be nervous, you're awesome), and walk you through the process from start to finish.  Want to get the experience for yourself?  Fill out our contact form and get in here!

(Q:) Where do you shoot sessions?  Are locations included in the sessions?

(A:) Everywhere and YES! We've loved the transition from the fields of Girard to the big(ish) city! We now have all of Erie, including Presque Isle and Frontier Park, right in our backyard!  You session includes everything we can fit in within the session time.  This means as many locations and outfits as we can fit.  Yay!

(Q:) What do you do differently from other photographers in the area?

(A:) I'm not here to get your business by bashing other photographers.  No way, no how.  I love other people's work, and strive to do my own thing in the industry.  So here's what I'm good at, and you can compare it to others.  Here at JDP, we do lots of things,  but here's what we're known for.  Creating a relationship with our clients.  Doing everything we can to make them comfortable during the shoot.  Customizing every single shoot to fit the style and personality of each client.  Classy, beautiful hair and makeup.  Having a selection of jewelry, hats, and other accessories to help you style your outfits.  Getting you to genuinely laugh.  Helping you look more gorgeous than you ever thought possible.  Guiding you through the ordering process so you're completely confident in your order.  We take stylish, classically beautiful portraits.  That's what we do, and we love every second of it.  Be our next client, and experience it all for yourself.
