What should I wear?
Dark, solid colors are best. Avoid busy patterns like stripes, plaids and polka dots.
Do you retouch photos?
Yes! Half of the magic comes after the shutter has already been released. Heroic will crop, resize, color correct, and touch-up your photos to create that picture-perfect look. Great care is taken to remove any distracting elements (signs, utilities, etc.) from the background. We also do light retouching on people (skin belmishes, stray hairs, etc.).
Do you provide hairstyling and makeup?
Yes! We work with a professional stylist to make sure you look your best. Pricing starts at $75. Please contact us for more information.
How many photos will you take during my session?
We will typically take several hundred photos during your session. After your shoot we choose the absolute best photos, enhance them to be even more wonderful, and usually deliver 25-50 photos for portraits, seniors, and engagement sessions.
How soon can I see and order my photos?
We provide some samples a few days after your shoot, and all of the processed photos 2-4 weeks later.
How do I order my photos?
When your photos are ready, we will contact you with a link to your private online photo gallery. From there you can view your photos and choose ordering options (sizes, paper types, etc.). Your gallery is available 24/7 from any computer that has an internet connection (even smart phones!). It is password protected for your privacy.
Why should I order my prints through you?
Great question! Heroic offers true professional lab printing services with an online a la carte ordering system. The color matching, ink, paper quality, and product selection is leagues better than what can be achieved at the kiosks you can find at a pharmacy or warehouse club. We can deliver everything from tiny prints to giant poster sized prints, all on top quality fade resistant paper and with precise color matching to make sure your prints look amazing. Plus we offer a wide variety of products, including canvas, metal prints, and more.
Do you offer photo books?
Of course! We offer an amazing selection of books in a variety of sizes, pages, styles, and finishes. They are professionally made and usually take about five weeks to design, print, and bind. Learn more about our beautiful photo books.
How early should I reserve my session?
The sooner the better! Our calendar fills up quickly, so be sure to pick out your date well in advance. If you plan on ordering a photo book, remember they take about five weeks to deliver.
