Congratulations- you have made an exciting decision to capture your incredible adventure! Let's plan your session in person and get to know each other, asap!

We will meet in your home to discuss what you are looking for in a professional photographer and will measure walls in which you wish to fulfill and select a package that is best suited for you. 

contract & deposit

In our planning meeting, we will sign the contract (digitally- I am 100% paperless) and send you an invoice to pay your retainer: 

50% for portrait sessions
$400 flat-rate for a wedding

to secure the dates. These are non-refundable. 

The package you select will be determined here for coverage, printed products, and also to schedule your shoot,andour Reveal & Fulfill Session, which is your ordering session. 

We will also be scheduling your Reveal & Fulfill session upon booking your contract. 

the shoot!

Let's have a blast! Don't stress about your session- please dress comfortably, get your hair/makeup done if you want to look your best, and consult with me if you want any other help picking what to wear or how to dress. Please arrive on-time, or let me know if you are running behind with a simple text to (858) 609-9626 - I would save this in your phone NOW!

For weddings, we will be meeting periodically to discuss invitations, engagement sessions, and a final meeting before the event. We will get to know each other VERY well!

Reveal & Fulfill sessions are the most exciting part where you will preview your images for the first time in your home or at my studio. All decision makers must be present. You will be picking the images for your album, print package, or wall art during this session. All pricing is subject to change if you leave without ordering. 

It's a win-win for your, the photographs, and your future self as the quality and beautiful outcome of these images are created with a professional experience from the start until the very end!  

After the Reveal & Fulfill Session, you will be sent previews to share on social media. You will also be receiving your own PORTAL with links to the online gallery within 2 weeks with TWO different galleries (Download & Share) and (Order Online).

It also will include your album proof and all of the customizable options that we discussed in- person! From here, you can find a link for your guests if you wish to send them the ability to access & print on their own. 

Please see below terms on usage, deadlines, and sharing policies.

All events & portrait sessions require an in-person Reveal & Fulfill ordering session. If you wish to place orders beyond that, I provide a link on your portal to view your gallery and purchase prints (up to 5x7 size) from my online storefront at

This link is sharable, which is perfect for guests from your event who wish to access the photos and print on their own.

SHARING POLICIES When posting online (from Download & Share Gallery), PLEASE post as much as you'd like! I ask that you do not crop, apply filters, or distort the image in ANY way or else I will ask you to remove it. Please do not crop out the watermark on the bottom. You must tag "Dana Frames Photo + Design" or @DanaFrames to each post.

PRINTING RIGHTS You will not have printing rights with images saved from the download & share gallery, so please do not try to print any of these in LOW quality. Please refer to your contract if you have full-resolution printing rights before taking anywhere else.  I will make sure the images are presented as BEAUTIFULLY as they are intended to be.
