IS MEGAN ENGESETH PHOTOGRAPHY THE RIGHT SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER FOR ME?
If you are the type of teen who wants to be unique, creative and glamorous all at the same time... You are DEFINITELY an MEP senior! If you want to stand out from the crowd with images that your friends rant about on IG, if you want to have a blast, feel totally relaxed and not nervous in front of the camera and if you can deal with just a teensy bit of swearing when I get really excited, then YES. You are an MEP senior. If you have something that defines who you are and want to represent it in your images without the old school look and get creative with your senior pictures then YES. You are an MEP senior.
DOES THE SESSION FEE INCLUDE A DISC WITH ALL OF MY IMAGES?
Simple answer- no. It does not • It includes the experience of a lifetime.
The session fee is my creative fee that covers our planning time to create the perfect unique session theme, use of my Senior Style accessories, hair and makeup (for select sessions), the use of my secret senior portrait locations, the photoshoot, fully retouched images for review, sneak previews on FB/Instagram, and a premiere ordering session with full design and product guidance for you, your parents and your home. You will be able to purchase anything you would like from my product menu at your ordering session for your senior portraits.
DO YOU OFFER THE PRINTABLE DIGITAL NEGATIVES OF MY SESSION?
They arrive on a beautiful USB. I offer my clients a selection of digital sharing images (to show off to your family and friends) and print resolution digital negatives. These are included in many print collections or a la carte .
I offer them in packages because I want you to have amazing artwork in your home to enjoy 50 years from now. They are extremely valuable as you get a limited print release to print as many copies as you want for family and friends.
If you are just looking for "just" the digital negatives without prints or art at a low price - we might not be the best option for you. Our goal is to create fine art that is displayed through your home. We have learned from experience that when client get "just" the digital images/disc/usb they put that in a drawer and forget about it. 90% of the time. We don't want our clients to worry about printing/finishing/designing etc etc etc. Too much work! Let us do this for you.
I'M NOT PHOTOGENIC.
Nope. NOOOOOPEEEE. Not. True. I'm so glad you stopped by because I have a secret for you. NO MATTER WHAT you think you look like in other pictures your friends take, getting your senior pictures taken by Megan Engeseth Photography will CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT YOURSELF. Pretty big statement huh? I have spent years studying both posing and retouching to make everyone look amazing. (Did you know most MODELS don't look good in pictures without a talented photographer to pose, light, and use the correct techniques successfully?) YOU WILL ADORE your experience AND your senior portraits with Megan Engeseth Photography I'm certain of it.
What DO I WEAR FOR MY SENIOR PICTURES?
During your pre-session consult with me (think yummy coffee, fun chat, talking about what you love, and concept/clothing styling) we will talk about your style and I'll help you figure out what works perfectly with your style! Fashionista? Perfect! Indy girl? Bring it on! High Fashion unique style? YES!
I also have the PERFECT accessories available in studio to finish off your look or add an artistic flair (necklaces, hair pieces, headbands etc)
Still unsure? Check out my WHAT TO WEAR guide.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO BOOK A SESSION?
I only book senior sessions in person over zoom. That way - we can make sure you are booking the correct session for your needs!
Once you contact me using the BOOK A CONSULT link you'll receive a WELCOME GUIDE full of info and a link set up a time using my online booking system to meet over ZOOM to hear all about you and give you all the product/pricing/dates/times/ etc etc.
You can pick the best time for you! After we talk about which session is right for you, you'll sign the portrait agreement, pay the session retainer fee and half of the product deposit. I like to spread out the payments to help you manage the investment over time. Once this is complete, your session time is secure!
