Before My Session
Simply let me know you would like to book a photo shoot session, what dates work best for you and what type of session you are looking for through my contact page or email me at ShaleemLovePhotography@gmail.com. For wedding photography please send me your date, venue location and I will send you more information.
It is best to keep clothing simple, avoiding logos or busy patterns. I always suggest layers/textures. In group photos, color coordinating is always more pleasing to the eye. Wear clothes that represent you and who you are. Feel free to bring a change of clothing. It’s always great to bring a few accessories with you. A cute hat or a stylish jacket can transform you from one look into another without the need for a complete wardrobe change.
As long as you provide sufficient advance warning, I will make every effort to accommodate your change. However, please understand that once you’ve been penciled in, that’s a designated time where I haven’t scheduled other clients. It may be difficult for me to fill that time slot with another session without sufficient notice. I therefore ask that you make every effort to stick to your original session date and time.
You have choices! I have a studio if you’re looking for traditional studio portraits. However, I do a lot of sessions on location at a place (or places) of your choosing, and I have a long list of awesome locations that I’m happy to recommend. If you’re having trouble deciding, you also have the option to do half of your session at the studio and half of your session at another location.
Absolutely! If you’re comfortable with it, then I’m comfortable with it. Just be sure that your guests realize they’re there to support you and not distract you.

During My Session
Nikon Professional camera bodies, lenses and flash. I am continually investing in camera equipment to provide my clients with the best image quality possible.
If it is overcast (or just a light mist), we will proceed with the session. Bring along an umbrella just in case! If we’re shooting in an urban area, I will photograph people inside local coffee shops, under awnings, etc. until the rain passes. Despite what some people may think, cloudy days are fantastic for photos! However, in the case of heavy rain, or thunder & lightning, we will re-schedule the session for another time.

After My Session
Photos are viewed 4-7 days after the shoot to allow the client the opportunity to mix and match different images with different print sizes to build your personal package. Additional photos can be purchased online.
The majority of our products are ready within 1-2 weeks from the time of ordering, with some albums and folios taking slightly longer. We will let you know if there is anything in your final package that will take longer than expected and keep you updated every step of the way.
