Can I see examples of the photographer's work and portfolio?

Of course! Once you submit an inquiry, you can view all of the photographers in that city, browse their portfolios, and select your favorite. Our team has hand-picked local photographers in each destination. Every listed photographer has been through our application process and they have been vetted for quality, value and service in order to ensure you always have an exceptional experience with Local Lens.

How long should my photoshoot be?

Most people book a one hour photoshoot. It seems to be the perfect amount of time to capture your vacation memories with a variety of backdrops, although we usually recommend a minimum of 90 minutes for larger groups.

How do I book a surprise proposal photographer?

We offer surprise proposal photography because having photos that capture the special moment is priceless. Our team will help you with the planning and offer tips & suggestions. You can also order extras such as flowers, champagne, or sometimes even a musician!

How many people can join my photoshoot?

All of our packages are time-based. If you plan on having 6 or more people attend the shoot, there is a 1 hour booking minimum. For groups with more than 12 people, we usually recommend a minimum of 90 minutes for the photoshoot… but the number of people in your party is ultimately up to you!

How early should I book my vacation photographer?

We suggest booking at least one week in advance. We’ll do our best to accommodate any last minute bookings, but to ensure you get your preferred date, time, and photographer, we recommend booking at least 1-3 weeks in advance. Peak times (such as weekends or holidays) usually require even more time in advance to assure availability.

Can I split the photoshoot time between 2-3 days?

Unfortunately, the entire photoshoot time must take place on the same day at once. We are unable to split a 2 hour package between 2 days. If you would like to have multi-day photoshoots, you will need to book a separate photoshoot for each day you would like captured.

Can I receive all of the unedited or RAW photos?

While we would love to provide all of the unedited or raw files, the real magic happens during the editing process. It can take dozens of shots, adjustments, and poses to get the perfect set of photos for your gallery. We want you to get the best photos possible, and to do that takes time, careful selection, and skilled editing that is all included in the price you pay for the photo services. Think quality vs quantity. If you feel there is a certain photo or pose that is missing, we’ll be happy to look into it for you.

RAW files are the digital negatives and require special software and technical expertise to turn them into finished products. Delivering all the RAW files from a shoot is extremely uncommon since it mis-represents a photographers work when compared to a finely-tuned photo. For these reasons we usually advise against giving out RAW photos, unless the photographer you choose is fine with it.

What is your refund and rescheduling policy?

Our conditions for refunds are:

  • If you cancel no less than 72 hours before the shoot, we will honor a 95% refund
  • If you cancel less than 72 hours before the shoot, we will honor a 50% refund
  • If you cancel less than 24 hours before the shoot, or do not show up to a shoot, there is no refund.

In the case of bad weather… Exploring the city under the rain can be very exciting, and it will make for great photos (trust us!). If the weather is too unbearable, you can coordinate with your photographer to re-schedule or we can offer a refund (excluding the non-refundable deposit).
