30A WHAT IF IT RAINS?

The Emerald Coast is famous for it's peak season rain. As a local, we love the frequent summer storms as they usually blow in a little cooler temps for the sunset or sunrise. Rainy days are the perfect time to catch an indoor magic show or even go drop a few tokens in the machine at the arcade.

digital files

I proudly offer both digital files and beautiful print products for your ordering convenience. As I understand the importance of displaying your family’s photos inside your home, I recognize many clients prefer both keepsakes to pass onto their loved ones. However, keep in mind that digital files are not yet proven to stand the test of time as well as printed products do.

This is just oe of the many reason we highly suggest clients purchase their home decor products using our premioum labs and services (like retouching, image sizing, etc)

 

Additionally, viewing your family’s beautiful wall art proudly displayed inside your home not only reinforces family bonds but individual self-esteem. You hired a professional photographer not to capture moments that sit on a computer but memories that will warm your heart and bring a smile to your face every time you look at them.

  • Buy More, Save More ~ Orders $3,900+ will receive 20% off your total (Savings of $780+) & you will also receive ALL of the digital files seen in the gallery via download. (Savings of $1,250)

  • IF your print order is $2,600+, you will receive ALL of the digital files seen in the gallery via download. (Savings of $1,250)

  • How much are Gallery Digital Files ONLY?  The purchased Gallery Digital files are delivered via download and will be the Full Size, High Resolution files which you see in the gallery. Comes with a print release so you can print as many times as you like & share online as well. $1,250.00

  • How many images can I expect? Each session is different! I do not count my images nor do I cap the number of images. At the very least you can expect to see at least 30 images.

  • Do you sell Individual Digital Files?  Yes, you can get individual RETOUCHED digital files by purchasing the image in an 11×14 or larger print & then the single digital file will be included with your purchase. I DO NOT sell individual digital files by themselves.

please note: digital collections include download of gallery images as seen at preview (retouching/artwork start at $25 per image)

TIP: LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT SIZE WALL PORTRAIT OR GALLERY COLLECTION, SEND US YOUR WALL SIZE DIMENSIONS AND A PICTURE OF THE WALL (USE YOUR CELL PHONE), AND WE CAN SHOW YOU WHAT YOUR IMAGES WILL LOOK LIKE ON YOUR WALLS BEFORE YOU BUY.

30A PHOTO PRE-SESSION PLANNING

As a mother of 5, I completely understand the struggle of planning a destination portrait session.

 

What's the best wardrobe to pack? Do I need anything special for a beach session? Is it better to do sunrise or sunset? What's the best beach? How do I pose?Do you come to us or do we come to you? What if it rains?

The list goes on.

It's more than just a photo session ~

it's an adventure!


We offer a complimentary, yet very detailed, pre-session consult for all of our sessions. After booking, you will be emailed our "booking packet" that covers all the details you will need for not only a stress free session, but also a session you can get your whole family excited about!

YOUR IMAGE GALLERY

Once we have completed basic edits on your images, we will upload the full gallery to a password protected online image gallery (25-100 images). You will have 5 days to make your final purchase..

Upgrading your package?

We are here to help! We can schedule an online zoom meeting where we can show you the options for home decor, wall art, Christmas cards and more and answer any questions your might have.

Your images deserve more than sitting in a small frame or waiting on a computer to be shared or even lost!

 

Choosing the right photographer is not an easy decision. Let's face it... there are 1000's of photographers out there. We all know someone who “takes pictures”, but capturing beautiful portraits on the beach, understanding how to set up the perfect shot, engage with individuals, provide exceptional OFF CAMERA lighting, and edit images are skills that require training and experience.

The artistry you will receive from Melonie Marie Photography is not only an investment in your family's legacy, but it is also an investment in your family unit. I specialize in providing large statement home decor items that showcase your family's essence and legacy providing joy for all that view it.

 

We are fully licensed, insured and have all required BEACH PERMITS.
note: additional fees required for bon-fire, events or dogs permits

TESTIMONIALS

"Melonie is absolutely wonderful! She has been photographing my family for years! She is so creative and a dream to work with. Getting you to relax and have a blast is her specialty! She has done everything for my family from senior portraits to grand babies! Melonie and Tim even made a trip back to Michigan and took the time to do a last minute engagement session for my son and future daughter in law and are traveling back to do their wedding in the fall. We are so excited to have her capture their special day and have precious photos to remember the day!"

~RaeLynn V

"Thank you Melonie for the beautiful photos you took of my family on the beach! You were so easy & fun to work with & you knew exactly how to get the perfect shot! Just like the photo I posted below (visit our google reviews to view image). You captured such a cute photo of my grandchildren on the beach! This is just one of the many I will forever love & cherish!"

retouching/editing

Editing: I personally do all of the online gallery image ehancements and basic edits of your images.

 

Full retouching is included at no charge for all images you order in wall art or gift prints. These images are sent to a professional retoucher for blemish removal, small stary hairs, teeth whitening, background distractions, softening of facial lines, color saturation and contrast.

 

Extensive retouching is available for images that need something more such as head swaps, clothing adjustments, body contouring (yes ladies... you can lose 20lbs the easy way!), or other major retouching needs. The extensive retouching starts at $25 per image depending on level of work requested.
