WEB DESIGN

How long does it typically take to develop a website?

Typically, a website takes 4-6 weeks to develop. It could be shorter or a bit longer, depending on a variety of factors. One major factor would be Content Preparedness, Clients can oftentimes under estimate the amount of time it will take to get their content ready for the website. Even when there is already an existing website, a new layout may require more or less words and additional features will require new content.

Other factors may include the Length of Review Time, that may be extended by life circumstances and/or other project goals, like Brand Development or Photography that will be utilized to compliment the project.

In short, the length of time is highly dependent upon open and continuous communication between the Developer and Client.

What platforms can you build on?

We can build on the following platforms:

  • WordPress*
  • Magento
  • SquareSpace
  • Wix

*We specialize in WordPress websites.

What is the typical investment?

Our minimum level of engagement for Web Development is $3,000.00. A basic website traditionally is completed with roughly 15 hours and our current agency rate is $200/hr.*

Our rate DOES NOT include any domain or hosting purchases. We recommend purchasing your domain and hosting through SiteGround for security and customer support.

DIGITAL MARKETING

What mediums are considered in your Digital Marketing services?

Social Media Management, Online Marketing Campaigns, and E-mail Marketing are all considered digital marketing.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Do you provide printing options?

We can design any graphic to print in any format, but we do not print. We do have preferred venders for print.

BRANDING

How long does it typically take to design a logo?

A logo design can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks, which would include any other elements like business cards and letterhead.

Delays may occur due to the Length of Review Time, that may be extended by life circumstances. Yet, with most projects, the length of time is highly dependent upon open and continuous communication between the Designer and Client.

What is the typical investment?

We currently charge $500.00 for a single logo, but recommend our complete branding package if you know you will need business cards and letterhead. Our pricing is based on the typically timeframe of design, which is about 5 hours for logos and 10 for the complete branding package.

We require a non-refundable deposit of 33.3% at the time of booking.

*Prices are re-evaluated on a 6 month basis. Please fill out our Brand Development Form to get a more accurate quote. 

PHOTOGRAPHY

How long does a typically photoshoot take?

Like with most services, contacting us to let us know your desired outcome is the best option for determining the most appropriate time-frame.

Here are some general time-frames, based on our experience:

  • Headshots: 30 mins
  • Individual/Branding: 1 – 2 hrs
  • Family (Family of Four): 1 – 2 hrs *More people typically require more time.
  • Newborn: 2 hrs
  • Birth: 6 – 8 hrs *
  • First 48: 1 hr
  • Real Estate: 30 mins – 1 hr
  • Weddings: 8+ hrs
  • Events: Varies

Other things to consider: The number of people, outfit changes and locations will add to your time — which will be determined at the time of booking. The Photographer is scheduled for a start and end time. Any time after the allotted time will result in additional costs. Obviously, things happen and outstanding circumstances will be considered.

What is the typical investment?

Our hourly rate for photography is currently $250/hr, which does not include any specials or discounts that may be applied. This rate is never inclusive of studio fees, parking, travel or any other things not specified by our service.

We require a non-refundable deposit of 50% at the time of booking.

For wedding packages, we start at $2,500. 

*Prices are re-evaluated on a 6 month basis. Please fill out our Photography Form to get a more accurate quote.  PLEASE NOTE: We have a separate form for weddings: Wedding Form.

Is there a typical time you prefer to shoot?

We are primarily natural light photographers and typically shoot outdoors and indoors near windows (not including events). Due to our preferred style, we shoot during sunrise and sunset, or early morning and early evening. We shoot during the weekdays and weekends. Generally, our ideal time-frames are 7:30 am to 10:30 am and 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Times are adjusted depending on the season.

We will shoot during alternative times, but will communicate expected challenges that may be faced with harsh light.

How far in advance should I book?

For most photography sessions, you can safely book your session no less than 14 days prior to the requested date.

For a large event, like a wedding, you should plan to book your wedding photographer around the same time you book your planner — which is as close to 12 months as possible. It may seem excessive but most of our wedding packages include pre-wedding shoots (i.e. engagement sessions, boudoir, etc. ).

Additionally, we love getting to know our couples over their wedding planning experience. The more we know, the more we can deliver the best possible product.

CONSULTING

What type of consulting to you do?

In addition to business consulting, we provide consulting services in every service we offer. Consultations start at $200/hr.
