FAQ

Here are the answers to a few questions I am asked often. If you don’t see your question answered here, please contact me and I will be happy to help!

  1. How do I book Erin Scott Photography’s services?

    It’s easy! After we discuss the kind of coverage you would like, I will send you your photography agreement. You simply sign it, attach the retainer fee, and send it back to me. Once I receive it your date is saved and you are officially booked!

  2. What is your shooting style?

    I’d describe my style as classic modern. Before entering portrait and event photography, I worked as a newspaper photojournalist, where I learned to look for the story in each photo I made. As your photographer I will draw on that narrative background. But I think fun and romantic posed shots are essential, too. Your coverage will include both of these elements.

  3. What should I wear to my photo shoot?

    The most important thing is to wear something you feel good in. If you are part of a group shoot, try to stay away from logos and identical outfits. Instead, wear colors and patterns that complement the clothing of the other people in your group. For more inspiration, check out these ideas from a colleague of mine: What to Wear.

  4. What kinds of albums do you offer?

    I offer digital, magazine-style albums and more traditional matted albums. Albums come with gorgeous leather covers in an array colors and styles. I also have a broad selection of beautiful vegan covers, too!

  5. Do you shoot in film or digital?

    One hundred percent digital.

  6. Do you travel?

    Yes! There may be some extra expenses involved, but I can provide you with a custom quote after we discuss your event plans.

  7. How many images will you make at my wedding or portrait session?

    Plenty! For a typical wedding, I deliver around 500 pictures. I proof about 35 pictures for portrait sessions.

  8. Do the image CD’s include a print release? What does that mean?

    I include a PDF release form on every CD so you can print your photos anywhere. The release lets you do pretty much anything with your photos except sell them. I can also recommend great places to have your images printed!

  9. What if I need more than one photographer for my event?

    Over the years I have assembled a trusted team of Washington DC photographers who have helped with events ranging from weddings to major advertising, corporate, and studio productions. Let’s talk about your needs and how we can make it work!
