William shot our engagement photos and he was amazing to work with. Our shoot was in our home, and it was every bit as intimate and relaxed as I wanted it to be because William fit the bill.
William and his crew at Petruzzo Photography are an outstanding group, who provided us with amazing, once-in-a-lifetime quality photographs from our engagement, wedding, and post-wedding formals.
We’ve used Petruzzo Photography for multiple occasions and have been beyond satisfied with each of our experiences. My husband and I recently did a photo shoot with Felipe Sanchez of Petruzzo Photography, our third photo shoot with him. As always, Felipe brought a level of professionalism, humor, and talent that is unmatched by others.
Each of the photos are like telling a different story. I can imagine we look at those photos together in many years from now and cherish the moments we had when we are young.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where will the session take place?
Couples & Engagement Sessions always take place on-location. Depending on what style of images you like, we may shoot in your home, in a local park, a playground, or a downtown area. Virtually anywhere that is appealing to you, and we are legally allowed to use, is a possible candidate.
How far will you travel?
Travel to locations within 35 miles of the 21054 zip code is included with your session. Travel beyond that will cost a little extra.
Will you photoshop the images?
Depending on the context of the image, we will remove some non-permanent blemishes and may slightly soften skin where it looks unnaturally rough. On portraits, we generally do not perform major cosmetic adjustments.
How long before the images are finished?
Standard turn around time for family portraits is 14 business days. Rush delivery is available at an additional cost.
How long do sessions usually last?
We keep shooting until we feel satisfied that we’ve captured what we are after. Sessions with couples typically last around an hour.
What if one of our gets sick, there is bad weather, or an emergency?
We make every effort to accommodate changes in schedule, bearing in mind we can only reserve one date at a time per booking, so schedules will be based on current availability at the time of rescheduling.
Can we wear multiple outfits?
Certainly. However, be aware that we cannot guarantee there will be a place to change clothes. If you’re not planning to hold your session in your home, we recommend bringing alternate outer wear, which is easy to change in public.
How should I dress my child for the session?
Just about anything you think looks good will be suitable. We recommend picking colors from a pallet, as opposed strictly matching colors. The most important thing is that you feel physically comfortable.
Are there any other fees I should expect?
Our packages are all inclusive, but do not include tax. If you wish to schedule a session outside of our normal service area you will be required to pay for travel. You may also be required to pay for prints, advanced retouching, parking and event or location admissions during the session.
