Awards & Publications
Q: Where are you located?
A: The main office is located in Douglasville, GA, but I love to travel EVERYWHERE! We service Georgia and the Florida Panhandle, but are always ready with our suitcases to pick up and go to wherever you are!
Q: What is the best time of day to do photos.
A: I understand that, due to circumstances, you may need various times of the day. Ideally, my favorite time to shoot is 90 minutes before sunset or 90 minutes after sunrise.
Q: How can I pay?
A: I accept cash, credit cards and checks. I will send an invoice to your email for your retainer. In addition, I offer no-interest payment plans with easy, auto-pay options.
**There is $50 Returned Check fee. Your fees must be paid within 3 days or your requested date will not be reserved. Checks returned must pay by cash or credit.**
Q: What should we wear for our photoshoot?
A: I suggest you try to avoid anything that seems too matchy-matchy. Coordinating styles is best for photos. I always recommend one person to wear a print and the other to wear a solid color. Don’t be afraid of color! Colors really make things pop in a photo. If you prefer neutral colors, I recommend making sure it has some texture, such as lace. Adding colored jewelry could also really play up a neutral outfit. If you’re unsure, just ask! I’d be glad to help!
Q: Can you Suggest locations for our session?
A: Yes! I have a few favorite locations I'd be happy to share with you, upon request! However, if you have a location that is special to you, please let me know. I'm always open to new ideas and new locations. I am happy to work with you and your ideas to make your session the best experience I can. A few suggestions include parks, beaches, woodlands, abandoned buildings, etc.
Q: What are your Travel Fees?
A: Most regular sessions within the Metro Atlanta area will not require a mileage fee. If your session is outside of my regular service area, I'll include 15 miles and add a fee of $.55/ mile for any additional mileage. If an overnight stay will be required, a hotel fee will be added. Please contact me for a travel estimate.
*Travel fees are based on the IRS suggested Mileage rates. Travel fees are due at booking*
Q: Do you allow pets?
A: Yes, I think pets make great additions! However, it is important that you let me know ahead of time if you’d like to include your furry friend. Some locations may not allow pets. I suggest bringing treats to help keep their attention during the session.
Q: How long does it take to receive my gallery?
A: Industry standard for regular sessions is a 4-6 week turnaround time from the date of the session. The industry standard for weddings is a 6-8 week turn around. I always do my best to have them back to you well before the standard delivery time.
Q: Can I post my images on my Facebook page, personal blog or other social media sites?
A: Yes, please do! Just make sure that you either post the web-sized images that are watermarked or tag @maegracephoto in the photo. When I post a sneak peek, feel free to tag yourself and any family members as well.
