What if it rains on my shoot day?
If it looks like it will either be raining or snowing too hard to shoot your pictures, we will reschedule the shoot. Bad temperatures (too hot or too cold) will not be grounds for rescheduling, nor will overcast skies. In fact, overcast is often great for pictures! The clouds soften otherwise harsh shadows! Cancellation is at the discretion of Curtis Wiklund Photography and is usually determined 2-3 hours before the shoot.
Do you offer yearbook pictures?
No. The yearbook picture is a standard lit portrait that will look almost identical no matter the studio. Our goal is to give you something unique! Many school suggested studios (such as Prestige) have the process really streamlined, to where it's fast, simple, and cheap (some $20 or so). Our past seniors have had their formal yearbook picture done at a studio like this (where there is no obligation to purchase anything more than the yearbook picture), and then they came to us in their "real" clothes for the pictures they're going to want to give to friends and family and have on their walls for years to come.
How much do you cost?
Our shoots begin at $250. The prints come in packages that begin at $325 and can be customized to fit your needs. We've had families order small amounts all the way up to $5000 worth of prints and products. It is entirely dependent on what you would like to do with your pictures. The details in our pricing packet will help to know what to expect when it comes to ordering.
How does the ordering process work?
The entire ordering process is done together at the Photo Viewing Session in our studio. We watch a slideshow of all your images, and then begin the process of narrowing them down to your favorites!
Anyone who wants a say in the ordering should be at the Photo Viewing Session, as all final decisions are made together. Once you leave, the order is prepped and placed, and you can expect your prints in about 3 to 4 weeks! (rush services are available)
Where are you located?
Our studio is in Birmingham, MI. We love Birmingham for its variety in urban and nature looks, but we have traveled all over for shoots. Many of our past clients have come from Troy High School, Troy Athens High School, Groves High School, Seaholm High School, Andover High School, Lahser High School, Rochester Adams High School, Rochester High School, Clarkston High School, Lake Orion High School, Stoney Creek High School, and many more.
