INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
No
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
If it's soft filter you prefer--no problem; Sepia Toned photos float your boat? You've got it. Black and whites with color highlights? It's yours. I can re-produce pretty much anything digitally.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have experience with all lighting situations including a bride and groom lit with only sparklers on the Fourth-of-July.
Is your media preference film or digital?
My training in art school and publishing was "old school," i.e. developing and printing film in the dark room. I still dabble with film in large and medium formats. But, the artistic possibilities with digital are limitless.
How many photographers do you work with?
If an event hosts more than 100 guests my assistant will work with me. I will work alone at small venues under 100, unless something unique is requested by the host(s).
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
My presence is guaranteed. I take great pride in providing my clients with dependable, courteous, and professional service that they can count on.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I have the benefit of being a small boutique company which means we can be selective in the events that we do. I'm not interested in bouncing back and forth between events and clients. We would never book more than one event in a day. The more events a photographer shoots, the more work he will have, and ultimately the longer the client will have to wait for proofs and albums.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
In an emergency situation I have a few professional colleagues I can call that would fill-in with my assistant. But, I'm young, healthy and have a lot of energy to burn off.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
My digital Nikon cameras are a must with strobes. Anything other than that depends on what artistically the couple wants.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Back-up equipment is essential if you want to be in business and stay in business.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I charge by the session, or package. Eight hours of contiguous coverage is ideal for a wedding day which is my standard package. However, depending on the need I will do 2 hour, 4 hour, and 6 hour packages. Check out our new Flex Packages...designed for people whose needs are non-traditional.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Charges are by the session, or package. However, sometimes couples request more hourly time, especially on the day of the wedding. Because Art.Fixx is a small boutique company we can give them that extra flexibility. Hourly face-time rate beyond any package is $150 per hour.
Do you charge for travel?
I work within a 30 mile radius of the Lyceum in Old Town, Alexandria. Any event outside that radius is charged the standard 50 cents per mile in addition to the set package rate. Traveling fees are negotiable for out-of-state venues.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Because we only do a couple wedding per month, I am happy to have prints to the couple within 120-150 days. The turn around time for Wedding Albums and Hard Cover Picture Books varies as it usually takes couples time to figure out which photos they want to include in those items.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Unlike most photographers, our "proofs" are usable 4X 6 prints that can be framed the day they arrive at your home.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The photos are yours. Yes, yours. The whole idea of charging for proofs and negatives, in my opinion is antiquated. Make sure to ask about this when you are shopping around as this course can save you several hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I do retain the copyrights to the images because I do use them for my advertising and marketing. However, my clients get complete photo reproduction rights as well as the digital files to do what they please. Want me to print your pictures? No problem. Want to take your CD's to Walmart and make t-shirts or posters for eight bucks? Do it...the images are of you and they should be yours.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Digital files come with all set packages. Please contact me for my Price List which includes all of the details.
Will images be available for viewing online?
All images are available for viewing world-wide through the "Proof Viewing" portal on the Art.Fixx website. Proof viewing is pass-word protected.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Art.Fixx proudly teams with Tuscany Albums. Talk to me about the options.
When will the client get the final album?
Because I only do a couple wedding per month, I am happy to have prints to the couple within 120-150 days. The turn around time for Wedding Albums and Hard Cover Picture Books varies as it usually takes couples time to figure out which photos they want to include in those items.

Artfixx did the most wonderful job for our Fall wedding. Not only were lori's photos beautiful but they did not like everyone I knew (no silly photos of the shoe or any other bog standard stuff) no Lori's photos made me feel unique and special. Not only did she make me look terrific but post production managed to shave ten years off by adjusting the light ratios and other creative things. She shaved several pounds off my Mother's shots for which Mom will always be most appreciative! I cannot thank artfixx enough and Lori in particular for ensuring that my special day was stressfree and every photo perfect! Lori thanks so much...

Lori was the best! She was responsive, flexible, and easy to work with. She was willing to accomodate our non-traditional approach to the wedding and even stayed two extra hours to make sure she didn't miss a photograph. In less than four weeks after the wedding, she had already sent us our photos! All of our guests commented on what a professional and thorough job she did. I would highly recommend you choose Art Fixx for your own wedding.

Lori at ArtFixx was great. Not only did she capture the highlights of my wedding, she also caught the quieter moments that most people except for the bride and groom would not think about. Little things such as mom behind her daughter helping with the gown in the dressing room, pictures of the hands of the harpist on the strings, Mom's wistful smile or pictures of the bouquet on the table with the champagne glasses and flowers.

I liked her sense of style that added to the elegance of the wedding. She is also extremely cheerful and easy to work with. I highly recommend Lori at ArtFixx.

Art.Fixx is fantastic! I was incredibly pleased with the professionalism and high quality of personal attention given by my photographer. Our family portrait session was incredibly successful. The photographer came right to our home, in an environment where my son was most comfortable, and was quick to take quality shots. There were so many beautiful pictures, that we couldn't choose between them. That is quite a feat with a six month old! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Art.Fix whether it's for a family portrait or a special occasion.
