2002 BLACK FRIDAY GLAMOUR PHOTO SESSION SALE DETAILS:

I am currently focusing on glamour photo sessions.  These sessions are so so much fun!  You get to dress up and get gorgeous photos of yourself.  Glamour is an amazing experience and really does build confidence.

The thing I love about glamour more than boudoir, is that you can show all of these off to the world.  I know many of you love your boudoir photos, but keep them private for modesty reasons, which I completely respect.  With glamour, more people are comfortable showing them off and Facebook won't censor you either :)  But really, you won't regret doing one of these shoots! You deserve to invest in yourself! <3

The Black Friday Sale is for a 40 minute glamour session in my 2500 sq ft studio located at 2512 S C St.  We have tons of sets and you can either bring your own outfits or choose from the tons of available dresses, skirts, and rompers available in our glamour closet.



The 2020 Black Friday Sale:
-$260 off the session fee
-2020 pricing even if you book a 2021.  Pricing will be going up in January for those who don't get in on this sale.
-$150 credit to go towards your purchase
-$100 discount if you prepay for your package 
-If you have a gift certificate, you can also use up to one gift certificate on top of these discounts and credits.
-You can book up to two sessions (on different days- no exceptions) for yourself with this sale.
-You can book from December 2020- early May 2021.  I cannot extend this deal past that.  If you need to reschedule, it will still have to take place within that timeframe.

Boudoir : What to Expect and How to Prepare - Tacoma Stuido https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/9/boudoir-what-to-expect-and-how-to-prepare---tacoma-stuido

Why Boudoir?
Boudoir photography is quickly becoming popular.  The biggest reason is that these sexy photos make great gifts.  They can be given from a bride to her groom on the wedding day or as a honeymoon gift.  They can be given from a military significant other to her deployed soldier. They can also be given as a birthday or anniversary gift, or just because.

 

What a lot of people don't consider is that these photos also make great gifts for you to give yourself, ladies.  Most of my clients come here feeling a little nervous and insecure about their bodies.  When they leave, they tell me that the shoot was so much fun and an awesome experience.  In fact, many of my clients let me know that they'll be back in a few months to do it again.  When they come back to view the photos, they're always in love with them.  I've had so many of my clients tell me that they've never seen themselves so beautiful.  They thank me for showing them how stunning they really are, and most of them end up getting all the digitals and a book because they don't want to leave these photos behind.  This really is a fun, confidence building experience.  I promise, you'll love it! :)


What Others Say About Boudoir with Trina:

Boudoir shoots make awesome grooms gifts, and I can get a couple more ladies in before Valentines too. If you want to find out more about the experience, watch this short video :) The boudoir studio is located in North Tacoma, but can also be done at our Mountlake Terrace studio.

PS Photography Boudoir FAQ's:  What to Expect at Your Shoot

A few quick FAQs:
-Your photographer will be a female :)
-
The shoot will be taking place at 2512 S C Street Tacoma, WA 98402
-We highly recommend all of our clients get their hair and makeup professionally done.  If you're looking for recommendations of stylists, we can certainly recommend some.  Check the bottom of this page for some recommendations.  Please come to the studio fully ready so that getting your hair and makeup ready will not take out of your shoot time.
-For a 45 minute session, we recommend 2 outfits, but can sometimes fit 3 in.  Since change time does take out of the shoot time, we are not able to
accommodate more than 3 outfits.  What people choose to wear varies greatly. Some people like to wear a cute dress, while others a corset, cute bra set, night gown, jersey, topless (we don't do full nudes though).
-The turn around time is approx. 2-3 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options.  $40 for a 5 day turn around and $20 for 10 day turn around time.  I likely won't go over these options, so please bring it up in an email before or right after your shoot if you know you'll want rush editing.
-You can bring a friend to the shoot if you wish, but she will need to be a female. Friends are NOT permitted to take photos with their camera or cell phone.  If I see someone taking photos during the shoot I will ask them to stop and things will probably be awkward from that point on.  If they continue, the shoot will be over and any remaining session time will be forfeited.  If you are bringing a friend to your shoot, it is your responsibility to let them know that other than the hired photographer, photography is NOT permitted in the studio at any time. 
-Once your photos are done, you'll come to my downtown Tacoma location and choose the ones you want. All photo ordering sessions happen at my downtown Tacoma office.  There are no exceptions unless you pay in advance for all the digitals or the digitals and the book.  Unless you're purchasing all the digitals, you do have to come meet in person and view them.  I do not ever release anything online that hasn't been purchased.  All decisions do have to be made at this appointment.
-All our clients love their photos.  Most clients spend between $900-$1900 on images/products.  You can view the full pricing guide here.  If you're unable to pay in full, you can set up a payment plan or use PayPal credit.  If you're interested in looking into PayPal Credit, you can do so at
https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit  They offer 6 month with no interest and no fees.
-Any images you get in a digital format are for digital use only.  Any prints you would like do have to be ordered through us.  We take great pride in our work and want you to have beautifully displayed images that have been professionally printed.
-All photos have basic retouching done, and will have skin softening. If you want advanced editing on more photos, such as more skin softening and body contouring, that can be done for $30 per edit, per image.  Certain edits may need to be outsourced and I'll have to provide a custom quote for those.  Most people love the photos with the original edits, and rarely does anyone request advanced editing, so I recommend you view the photos first, and then decide if you want to add extra editing to your package.
-I will not use your photos in my portfolio without your permission.
-All shoots, photo ordering sessions and print/album pick ups are by appointment only.  Please only show up if you have a confirmed appointment.  To schedule a shoot appointment, go to
http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  For all other appointments, email me at trina@psphotography-video.com.
-All scheduling happens online at http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  I recommend scheduling from a computer and not a mobile device as mobile devices sometimes don't finish the booking process. Once you schedule you'll get an auto confirmation in your email.  If you don't get that auto confirmation, message us at trina@psphotography-video.com to verify that you're on the calendar.
-Any dates showing on the calendar that do not show time slots are already fully booked.  If someone cancels for that day, the time slot will appear back on the calendar at that time.  What's listed on the calendar is my complete availability.
-If you have any questions about your appointment that have not been addressed here, you can messages me at trina@psphotography-video.com Please do NOT message me on Facebook messenger. I do not have it on my phone and will likely not get any messages sent through messenger.  Even if I do get a message and respond to it, please do all future correspondence through my email at trina@psphotograph-video.com   
-If you get to your shoot early there early, you can text me at 206-900-1336 and if I'm free I'll let you know that you can come in. 
-There are no refunds and you are permitted one reschedule with no fees if you give me at least 3 days notice.  Any future reschedules will have a $39 rescheduling fee that is due at the time of the reschedule.
-If a deal was purchased, on the deal page the expiration for the deal is listed.  So in order to get the deal, if you have to reschedule, you still need to book within the time frame listed on the deal page.
-If you are more than 20 minutes late and do not text or email me, I will assume you are a no show and may leave the studio or start my next session.  If you are going to be more than 20 minutes late, you must email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and/or text 206-900-1336 letting me know you are still coming and we will shoot with whatever time is still left in your time-slot.  I'm a fast and efficient photographer, so even if we don't have a lot of time, I can still get a ton of amazing things, so please don't stress if you're late.  I am unable to go over time as I will likely have another appointment after yours.  If you miss your appointment or show up late, you will not receive a refund.  All retainers/session fees are non-refundable.  So please make sure to map on the address in advance and plan for traffic and other obstacles. 

-Only females will be in studio/at the location during your shoot. Often it will only be me (Trina).  Sometimes my administrative assistant, Grace, will be in studio. 
-The main entrance to the studio is a garage door.  I keep it shut during shoots and typically keep it shut between shoots so we don't let all the heat out.  When you arrive, just text me at 206-900-1336 and let me know you're there.  Please only use that number on the shoot date and ordering appointment date.  Any other time, please email me at trina@psphotography-video.com as I only keep that phone on my on shoot and appointment dates.  If you arrive early and text me, I may not be able to get right back to you as I might be in a shoot still.
-To view more of our boudoir work, you can go to http://psphotography-video.com and click the link for the boudoir section.  Or for more recent work you can view photos in the boudoir group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/boudoirphotographer/
-If you have anymore questions, you can contact me at trina@psphotography-video.com and Grace (my administrative assistant) or I will get back to you.  
-Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you!




Hair and Makeup Recommendations
-Most clients love their photos even more if they got their hair and makeup professionally done. I also find those that get their hair and makeup done often feel more confident during the shoot.  Here are some ladies that I have worked with and highly recommend.  If you do decide to go with one of them, make sure you let them know that you're having your shoot with me.  Please note that because I'm often shooting back to back, your hair and makeup time cannot happen at my studio.  You will have to go to your stylist's location, have them come to you if they're willing, or meet them somewhere.  Thanks for understanding, and feel free to check out these awesome ladies!

Tacoma Glamour PS Photography- 2020 Pricing https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/9/tacoma-glamour-ps-photography--2020-pricing

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR GLAMOUR PHOTOS

One of the most common question I get, is what should you do with these photos.  You have a ton of photos that you love and don't want deleted, but now what do you do with them?  The two things to consider when choosing what to buy are what you plan to do with the images and which images you love.

First, if you want to flaunt your gorgeousness, I recommend getting a 16x20 or bigger print or canvas to hang in your home.  

For those giving these as a gift, I'd recommend doing an album or Little Black Book.  That way you are handing the person a tangible gift that they can look at whenever they want.  The really nice thing about the books are that they're small and versatile.  

Digitals are our best selling product.  People like to keep these memories.  Although I cannot release the printing rights over the images since I want to maintain the quality, you can do whatever you want with these images in the digital format.  Digitals are such an easy way to preserve these memories.  You can save them to your computer and have access to them whenever you want, you can set them as a screensaver on your computer, a background on your phone, you can put them in a digital frame, you can put them in a slideshow, or just keep them on your phone so you can scroll through them whenever you want that boost of confidence or to show to a friend.  Most ladies love to show these off on Facebook or other social media :).  You look stunning in these photos and why wouldn't you want your friends to see a these photos?  Digitals can be used in so many ways and can be saved and archived, which is why most of our clients choose to get the 20+ digital package and/or the digital and book package.




THE PHOTO ORDERING PROCESS
Unless I have a sale going, the session fee for a 45 minute session is $300.  That covers the shoot itself and the digitals and products are sold separately at the ordering session that takes place approx 2-3 weeks after the session.

The ordering session is typically around 1 hour and takes place at the Union Club located at 539 Broadway, Tacoma, WA 98402.  As this is a professional office that other business people have their offices in, I ask you not bring children to the photo ordering session.

Everyone loves their photos and most people decide to get all of the digitals because there are so many they love, and a book so they can have a physical product.  


The only way to skip the ordering session is if you know you want all the digitals or the digital and the book package.  You can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know and I'll send you an online invoice.  Once paid and once the images are ready, I'll email you the link to your password protected online gallery where you can download your digitals from.  If you're also getting a book, I'll send you the directions for choosing for your book through the online gallery.



I mean, if you spent time and effort getting stunning photos of yourself, why wouldn't you want them all?  So although there is no pressure to get anything specific, I bet that you will love your images so much that you want them all and possibly a book or physical product as well :)

First, I'm going to be upfront, all decisions have to be made at your photo ordering appointment and all sales are final.  I'm not able to set up multiple appointments per person, so you need to be prepared to make all decisions at this appointment.  If you do need an additional appointment, I sometimes make an exception but there is a $39 fee for a second appointment. 

You must attend your appointment.  You cannot send someone else in place of yourself.  If you send someone else, I will have to send them away and will not be able to show the photos.  

If you're not able to make it to your ordering appointment, please give me as much notice as possible as I'm probably paying for childcare for that time and may not be able to schedule someone else for that slot.  If you don't show up to your appointment or give me less than 24 hours notice of a reschedule, there will be a $39 rescheduling fee.  This fee cannot be waived.  Anything you don't sign a model release for and do not order will be deleted.  So please come prepared to order everything that you want to keep as I don't hold on to images not purchased and that a model release isn't signed for.  If you are not ready to place your order, please do not schedule an ordering appointment.  Rather, let me know that you need to wait and I can give you my updated schedule for a time when you are ready to order.

Some ladies set a budget for themselves and then find they love a lot more images than they expected and they don't want to leave without them.  If you find yourself in this situation, don't worry, I'll work with you :). We can set up a payment plan where you only pay $150 upfront and set up payments over the next 12 weeks on dates that work for you.  There are no fees or interest if paid within 3 months and you'll get everything once the final payment is finished.  Or you can use PayPal Credit, which is what most of my clients on a payment plan do.  With PayPal Credit, if approved you can pay in full on the spot and receive everything upfront.  They will give you 6 month with no interest.  If you need more time than 6 months, you can take as long as you need, but then there are some fees associated with it once you're beyond the initial 6 months.  You can apply for PayPal Credit at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit

We created beautiful art here, and I don't want to see them deleted either.  So we'll work out a plan together if you need that.

 

 

PAYMENT OPTIONS
I take all forms of payment, including cash, check, credit, money order, PayPal and PayPal Credit.  If paying in cash, please bring the exact amount (don't forget tax) as I don't keep change on me.

If you decided on your package before your shoot and make payments that will be finished by your shoot date, or you pay in full before your shoot, I will give you a $100 discount on your package.  If you order any digitals and pre-pay, I will also give you a complimentary black and white gallery of all the digitals you purchased ($59 value) to thank you for your pre-session ordering.  You can still add more after your session if you want to add more to your package.  

If you want to order your package before your shoot and pay it or start making payments, you can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know the package you want.  I'll send you the total after tax and then send you an invoice that you can pay or make payments on online.

If you're interested in PayPal Credit, you can use it to purchase your package before or after your session, but if you purchase before the session, you get the pre-session perks.  You can apply for PayPal Credit right now at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit
  It's fast and easy to apply and see if you are accepted.  With PayPal Credit there are no fees or interest if you pay it off within 6 months from the date of purchase.  If you need more than 6 months, you can take as long as you need to pay it off, but there may be fees associated with taking longer.  But you can apply today and if you're accepted, your 6 months doesn't start until the date of purchase.  If you're paying with PayPal credit, be sure to let me know that if you're doing a pre-session payment so I can send you the invoice.  If you're paying at your ordering session, you can just let me know at the ordering session.

If you need a payment plan but didn't get accepted for PayPal Credit, I do in house financing too; however, you only have 3 months if you're doing the payment plan with me and I cannot release anything until all payments are finished.  You need to put $150 down to start the payment plan at your ordering appointment and you'll fill out a form and let me know the dates/amounts that I'm authorized to charge the card you use.  I can take any card type.

Okay, here's what you've been waiting for- the numbers! :)


These are the digital packages
20+ images= $975
10 images= $900
5 image= $850

The 20+ package has no limit.  So if I show you 100 images, you can have them all for the same price.  Once you pay for 20, anything beyond that is free.
A black and white gallery of all purchased digitals can be added to your package for just $59. 



Books:
A 20 page book can have anywhere from 20-40 images in it.  I recommend having around 35 images.  If you have more than 40 image you want in the book, you can add extra spreads (2 pages).  Each extra spread can have up to 5 images and is $40 per spread.
20 page 8x11 Crystal Glance Flush Mount Album $1500 (20-40 images)
20 page 8x6 Little Black Book $975 (20-40 images)




Prints can be added if you've purchased a book or digitals:

20x24= $250
16x20= $150
11x14= $90
8x10 and smaller= $60

 

Canvases can be added if you've purchased a book or digitals:
30x40= $600
20x30= $525
16x20= $450



Deal Packages:
Our deal packages are our best value and what most clients get.  I decided to offer this package because most of my clients want a physical product, but they have tons they love that won't fit in the book and they don't want to lose their images.  So these packages makes it easier to get a book and still have all the digitals so you don't lose anything you love.
Package 1: 20+ digitals and 20 page 8x6 Little Black Book $1,175 (normally $1950- $775 savings)
OR

Package 2: 20+ digitals, black and whites of digitals and 20 page 8x11  Crystal Glance Flush Mount Album $1725 (normally $2534- $809 savings)


 

 

DON'T LOSE YOUR IMAGES

You look stunning!  Don't lose these images!  Choose your favorites and then decide which package works best for you.  If you need a payment plan, just let me know and we'll get that set up.  

I have a promotion going on right now on our two most popular items.  Most people get the 20+ digital package and the Little Black Book.  If you decide to get the 20+ digitals and the Little Black Book, you can get them for a total of $1,175 right now instead of the $1,950) they normally are.  Or you can upgrade that deal package to include the black and whites and get the Crystal Glance album for just $550 more!

Glamour Photo Shoot What to Expect and How to Prepare https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/9/glamour-photo-shoot-what-to-expect-and-how-to-prepare  

GLAMOUR PHOTO SESSION

PS Photography Glamour FAQ's:  What to Expect at Your Shoot

A few quick FAQs:
-Trina will be your photographer

-The shoot will be taking place at my 2500sq ft studio located at 2512 S C St Tacoma, WA 98402
-We highly recommend all of our clients get their hair and makeup professionally done.  If you're looking for recommendations of stylists, we can certainly recommend some.  Check the bottom of this page for some recommendations.  Please come to the studio fully ready so that getting your hair and makeup ready will not take out of your shoot time.
-For a 45 minute session 2 outfits fits the time best.  You can use any dress/skirt available at the studio or bring your own outfits.  We currently have sizes s-3x.  I do add in a little cushion time to the appointment time for trying on outfits.

-The turn around time is approx. 2-3 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options.  $40 for 5 day turn around and $20 for 10 day turn around time.  I likely won't go over these options, so please bring it up in an email before or right after your shoot if you know you'll want rush editing.
-You can bring a friend to the shoot if you wish, but she will need to be a female. Friends are NOT permitted to take photos with their camera or cell phone.  If I see someone taking photos during the shoot I will ask them to stop and things will probably be awkward from that point on.  If they continue, the shoot will be over and any remaining session time will be forfeited.  If you are bringing a friend to your shoot, it is your responsibility to let them know that other than the hired photographer, photography is NOT permitted in the studio at any time. 
-Once your photos are done, you'll come to my downtown Tacoma location and choose the ones you want. All photo ordering sessions happen at my downtown Tacoma office.  There are no exceptions unless you pay in advance for all the digitals or the digitals and the book.  Unless you're purchasing all the digitals, you do have to come meet in person and view them.  I do not ever release anything online that hasn't been purchased.  All decisions do have to be made at this appointment.
-You can view the full pricing guide here.  
-If you're unable to pay in full, you can set up a payment plan or use PayPal credit.  If you're interested in looking into PayPal Credit, you can do so at
https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit  They offer 6 month with no interest and no fees.
-Any images you get in a digital format are for digital use only.  Any prints you would like do have to be ordered through us.  We take great pride in our work and want you to have beautifully displayed images that have been professionally printed.
-All photos have basic retouching done, and will have skin softening. If you want advanced editing on more photos, such as more skin softening and body contouring, that can be done for $20 per edit, per image.  Certain edits may need to be outsourced and I'll have to provide a custom quote for those.  Most people love the photos with the original edits, and rarely does anyone request advanced editing, so I recommend you view the photos first, and then decide if you want to add extra editing to your package.
-I may use images from your shoot on my site, on social media, for education, or other promotional purposes.  If you are not okay with a model release, please email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know and I will mark your images as no model release.  Most clients, love having me use their images and show them off, but if you're not comfortable with that I 100% understand and will delete your images after you receive them.
-If you need to reach me you can email me at 
trina@psphotography-video.com  Please do not send me messages on Facebook as there's no way for me to sort messages and I get tons every day and some get missed.  Emailing me at trina@psphotography-video.com is the best way to reach me.
-All scheduling happens online at https://bookme.name/psphotography/
-To schedule to go https://bookme.name/psphotography/ and scroll down to where it says Glamour Photo Session.  First click details to review the details and then click Book Your Shoot!  Choose a date and time and then enter your info.  Enter your contact info and enter the PROMO CODE if you have one to reduce your session fee.
-Any dates showing on the calendar that do not show time slots are already fully booked.  If someone cancels for that day, the time slot will appear back on the calendar at that time.  What's listed on the calendar is my complete availability.
-If you have any questions about your appointment that have not been addressed here, you can messages me at trina@psphotography-video.com Please do NOT message me on Facebook messenger. I do not have it on my phone and will likely not get any messages sent through messenger.  Even if I do get a message and respond to it, please do all future correspondence through my email at trina@psphotograph-video.com   
-If you get to your shoot early, you can text me at 206-900-1336 and if I'm free I'll let you know that you can come in. 
-I do not offer refunds.  Once you schedule your session fee is a retainer that holds you slot.  If you cancel you will lose that retainer.  I do allow one reschedules with no fees if you give me at least 72 hours notice.
-If you are more than 10 minutes late to your shoot and do not text or email me, I will assume you are a no show and may leave the studio or start my next session.  If you are going to be more than 10 minutes late, you must email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and/or text 206-900-1336 letting me know you are still coming and we will shoot with whatever time is still left in your time-slot.  I'm a fast and efficient photographer, so even if we don't have a lot of time, I can still get a ton of amazing things, so please don't stress if you're late.  I am unable to go over time as I will likely have another appointment after yours.  If you miss your appointment or show up late, you will not receive a refund.  All retainers/session fees are non-refundable.  So please make sure to map on the address in advance and plan for traffic and other obstacles. 

-The main entrance to the studio is a garage door.  I keep it shut during shoots and typically keep it shut between shoots so we don't let all the heat out.  When you arrive, just text me at 206-900-1336 and let me know you're there.  Please only use that number on the shoot date and ordering appointment date.  Any other time, please email me at trina@psphotography-video.com as I only keep that phone on my on shoot and appointment dates.  If you arrive early and text me, I may not be able to get right back to you as I might be in a shoot still.  
-After you text, once I'm ready I'll open the garage door and let you in. Please do not try to open the garage door yourself as if it's closed I may not be ready for you.

-To view some of my recent glamour work go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/boudoirphotographer/
-If you have anymore questions, you can contact me at trina@psphotography-video.com and Grace (my administrative assistant) or I will get back to you.  
-Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you!




Hair and Makeup Recommendations
-Most clients love their photos even more if they got their hair and makeup professionally done. I also find those that get their hair and makeup done often feel more confident during the shoot.  Here are some ladies that I have worked with and highly recommend.  If you do decide to go with one of them, make sure you let them know that you're having your shoot with me.  Please note that because I'm often shooting back to back, your hair and makeup time cannot happen at my studio.  You will have to go to your stylist's location, have them come to you if they're willing, or meet them somewhere.  Thanks for understanding, and feel free to check out these awesome ladies!

Tacoma Boudoir PS Photography- 2020 Pricing https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/1/tacoma-boudoir-ps-photography--2020-pricing

THE PHOTO ORDERING PROCESS
Unless I have a sale going, the session fee for a 45 minute session is $300.  That covers the shoot itself and the digitals and products are sold separately at the ordering session that takes place approx 2-3 weeks after the session.

The only way to skip the ordering session is if you know you want all the digitals (the 20+ digital package) or the digital and the book package.  You can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know and I'll send you an online invoice.  Once paid and once the images are ready, I'll email you the link to your password protected online gallery where you can download your digitals from.  If you're also getting a book, I'll send you the directions for choosing for your book through the online gallery.


Everyone loves their photos and most people decide to get all of the digitals because there are so many they love, and a book so they can have a physical product.  

I mean, if you spent time and effort getting stunning photos of yourself, why wouldn't you want them all?  So although there is no pressure to get anything specific, I bet that you will love your images so much that you want them all and possibly a book or physical product as well :)

First, I'm going to be upfront, all decisions have to be made at your photo ordering appointment and all sales are final.  I'm not able to set up multiple appointments per person, so you need to be prepared to make all decisions at this appointment.  If you do need an additional appointment, I sometimes make an exception but there is a $39 fee for a second appointment.  You must attend your appointment.  You cannot send someone else in place of yourself.  If you send someone else, I will have to send them away and will not be able to show the photos.  Children may not come to this appointment, with the exception of young infants.  If a child between 1 and 17 is brought to the appointment, we will have to reschedule. If you're not able to make it to your ordering appointment, please give me as much notice as possible as I'm probably paying for childcare for that time and may not be able to schedule someone else for that slot.  If you don't show up to your appointment or give me less than 24 hours notice of a reschedule, there will be a $39 rescheduling fee.  This fee cannot be waived.  Anything you don't sign a model release for and do not order will be deleted.  So please come prepared to order everything that you want to keep as I don't hold on to images not purchased and that a model release isn't signed for.  If you are not ready to place your order, please do not schedule an ordering appointment.  Rather, let me know that you need to wait and I can give you my updated schedule for a time when you are ready to order.

Some ladies set a budget for themselves and then find they love a lot more images than they expected and they don't want to leave without them.  If you find yourself in this situation, don't worry, I'll work with you :). We can set up a payment plan where you only pay $150 upfront and set up payments over the next 12 weeks on dates that work for you.  There are no fees or interest if paid within 3 months and you'll get everything once the final payment is finished.  Or you can use PayPal Credit, which is what most of my clients on a payment plan do.  With PayPal Credit, if approved you can pay in full on the spot and receive everything upfront.  They will give you 6 month with no interest.  If you need more time than 6 months, you can take as long as you need, but then there are some fees associated with it once you're beyond the initial 6 months.  You can apply for PayPal Credit at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit

We created beautiful art here, and I don't want to see them deleted either.  So we'll work out a plan together if you need that.

 

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOS

One of the most common question I get, is what should you do with these photos.  You have a ton of photos that you love and don't want deleted, but now what do you do with them?  The two things to consider when choosing what to buy are what you plan to do with the images and which images you love.

First, if you want to flaunt your gorgeousness, I recommend getting a 16x20 or bigger print or canvas to hang in your room.  Some people like to get three 16x20 prints to put above the bed.  For those of you who are concerned about not showing certain types of images in public, there will be modest pictures too :).

For those giving these as a gift, I'd recommend doing an album or Little Black Book.  That way you are handing the person a tangible gift that they can look at whenever they want.  The really nice thing about the books are that they're small and versatile.  If the person wants to display the book on their nightstand, they can leave it out. If you guys want to keep these images between the two of you, the book is nice and small and can easily be tucked away. 

Digitals are our best selling product.  People like to keep these memories.  Although I cannot release the printing rights over the images since I want to maintain the quality, you can do whatever you want with these images in the digital format.  Digitals are such an easy way to preserve these memories.  You can save them to your computer and have access to them whenever you want, you can set them as a screensaver on your computer, a background on your phone, you can put them in a digital frame, you can put them in a slideshow, or just keep them on your phone so you can scroll through them whenever you want that boost of confidence or to show to a friend.  And if you want to show these off on Facebook or other social media, there will be more modest shots that Facebook will approve :).  You look stunning in these photos and why wouldn't you want your friends to at least see a couple of the less revealing ones?  Digitals can be used in so many ways and can be saved and archived, which is why most of our clients choose to get the 20+ digital package.

 

PAYMENT OPTIONS
I take all forms of payment, including cash, check, credit, money order, PayPal and PayPal Credit.  If paying in cash, please bring the exact amount (don't forget tax) as I don't keep change on me.

If you decided on your package before your shoot and make payments that will be finished by your shoot date, or you pay in full before your shoot, I will give you a $100 discount on your package.  If you order any digitals and pre-pay, I will also give you a complimentary black and white gallery of all the digitals you purchased ($59 value) to thank you for your pre-session ordering.  You can still add more after your session if you want to add more to your package.  

If you want to order your package before your shoot and pay it or start making payments, you can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know the package you want.  I'll send you the total after tax and then send you an invoice that you can pay or make payments on online.

If you're interested in PayPal Credit, you can use it to purchase your package before or after your session, but if you purchase before the session, you get the pre-session perks.  You can apply for PayPal Credit right now at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit
  It's fast and easy to apply and see if you are accepted.  With PayPal Credit there are no fees or interest if you pay it off within 6 months from the date of purchase.  If you need more than 6 months, you can take as long as you need to pay it off, but there may be fees associated with taking longer.  But you can apply today and if you're accepted, your 6 months doesn't start until the date of purchase.  If you're paying with PayPal credit, be sure to let me know that if you're doing a pre-session payment so I can send you the invoice.  If you're paying at your ordering session, you can just let me know at the ordering session.

If you need a payment plan but didn't get accepted for PayPal Credit, I do in house financing too; however, you only have 3 months if you're doing the payment plan with me and I cannot release anything until all payments are finished.  You need to put $150 down to start the payment plan at your ordering appointment and you'll fill out a form and let me know the dates/amounts that I'm authorized to charge the card you use.  I can take any card type except for American Express for the payment plan done directly through me.
 

PRICING AND PRODUCTS

Okay, here's what you've been waiting for- the numbers! :)


These are the digital packages
20+ images= $975

The 20+ package has no limit.  So if I show you 100 images, you can have them all for the same price.  Once you pay for 20, anything beyond that is free.
A black and white gallery of all purchased digitals can be added to your package for just $59. 



Books:
A 20 page book can have anywhere from 20-40 images in it.  I recommend having around 35 images.  If you have more than 40 image you want in the book, you can add extra spreads (2 pages).  Each extra spread can have up to 5 images and is $40 per spread.

Deal Packages:
Our deal packages are our best value and what most clients get.  I decided to offer this package because most of my clients want a physical product, but they have tons they love that won't fit in the book and they don't want to lose their images.  So these packages makes it easier to get a book and still have all the digitals so you don't lose anything you love.
Package 1: 20+ digitals and 20 page 8x6 Little Black Book $1,175 (normally $1950- $775 savings)
OR

Package 2: 20+ digitals, black and whites of digitals and 20 page 8x11  Crystal Glance Flush Mount Album $1725 (normally $2534- $809 savings)


 

 

DON'T LOSE YOUR IMAGES

You look stunning!  Don't lose these images!  Choose your favorites and then decide which package works best for you.  If you need a payment plan, just let me know and we'll get that set up.  

I have a promotion going on right now on our two most popular items.  Most people get the 20+ digital package and the Little Black Book.  If you decide to get the 20+ digitals and the Little Black Book, you can get them for a total of $1,175 right now instead of the $1,950) they normally are.  Or you can upgrade that deal package to include the black and whites and get the Crystal Glance album for just $550 more!

Tacoma Boudoir PS Photography- 2019 Holiday Boudoir Mini Session Pricing https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/11/tacoma-boudoir-ps-photography--2019-holiday-boudoir-mini-session-pricing

THE PHOTO ORDERING PROCESS
Unless I have a sale going, the session fee for a 45 minute session is $300.  That covers the shoot itself and the digitals and products are sold separately at the ordering session that takes place approx 2-3 weeks after the session.

The only way to skip the ordering session is if you know you want all the digitals (the 20+ digital package) or the digital and the book package.  You can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know and I'll send you an online invoice.  Once paid and once the images are ready, I'll email you the link to your password protected online gallery where you can download your digitals from.  If you're also getting a book, I'll send you the directions for choosing for your book through the online gallery.


Everyone loves their photos and most people decide to get all of the digitals because there are so many they love, and a book so they can have a physical product.  

I mean, if you spent time and effort getting stunning photos of yourself, why wouldn't you want them all?  So although there is no pressure to get anything specific, I bet that you will love your images so much that you want them all and possibly a book or physical product as well :)

First, I'm going to be upfront, all decisions have to be made at your photo ordering appointment and all sales are final.  I'm not able to set up multiple appointments per person, so you need to be prepared to make all decisions at this appointment.  If you do need an additional appointment, I sometimes make an exception but there is a $39 fee for a second appointment.  You must attend your appointment.  You cannot send someone else in place of yourself.  If you send someone else, I will have to send them away and will not be able to show the photos.  Children may not come to this appointment, with the exception of young infants.  If a child between 1 and 17 is brought to the appointment, we will have to reschedule. If you're not able to make it to your ordering appointment, please give me as much notice as possible as I'm probably paying for childcare for that time and may not be able to schedule someone else for that slot.  If you don't show up to your appointment or give me less than 24 hours notice of a reschedule, there will be a $29 rescheduling fee.  This fee cannot be waived.  Anything you don't sign a model release for and do not order will be deleted.  So please come prepared to order everything that you want to keep as I don't hold on to images not purchased and that a model release isn't signed for.  If you are not ready to place your order, please do not schedule an ordering appointment.  Rather, let me know that you need to wait and I can give you my updated schedule for a time when you are ready to order.

Some ladies set a budget for themselves and then find they love a lot more images than they expected and they don't want to leave without them.  If you find yourself in this situation, don't worry, I'll work with you :). We can set up a payment plan where you only pay $150 upfront and set up payments over the next 12 weeks on dates that work for you.  There are no fees or interest if paid within 3 months and you'll get everything once the final payment is finished.  Or you can use PayPal Credit, which is what most of my clients on a payment plan do.  With PayPal Credit, if approved you can pay in full on the spot and receive everything upfront.  They will give you 6 month with no interest.  If you need more time than 6 months, you can take as long as you need, but then there are some fees associated with it once you're beyond the initial 6 months.  You can apply for PayPal Credit at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit

We created beautiful art here, and I don't want to see them deleted either.  So we'll work out a plan together if you need that.

 

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOS

One of the most common question I get, is what should you do with these photos.  You have a ton of photos that you love and don't want deleted, but now what do you do with them?  The two things to consider when choosing what to buy are what you plan to do with the images and which images you love.

First, if you want to flaunt your gorgeousness, I recommend getting a 16x20 or bigger print or canvas to hang in your room.  Some people like to get three 16x20 prints to put above the bed.  For those of you who are concerned about not showing certain types of images in public, there will be modest pictures too :).

For those giving these as a gift, I'd recommend doing an album or Little Black Book.  That way you are handing the person a tangible gift that they can look at whenever they want.  The really nice thing about the books are that they're small and versatile.  If the person wants to display the book on their nightstand, they can leave it out. If you guys want to keep these images between the two of you, the book is nice and small and can easily be tucked away. 

Digitals are our best selling product.  People like to keep these memories.  Although I cannot release the printing rights over the images since I want to maintain the quality, you can do whatever you want with these images in the digital format.  Digitals are such an easy way to preserve these memories.  You can save them to your computer and have access to them whenever you want, you can set them as a screensaver on your computer, a background on your phone, you can put them in a digital frame, you can put them in a slideshow, or just keep them on your phone so you can scroll through them whenever you want that boost of confidence or to show to a friend.  And if you want to show these off on Facebook or other social media, there will be more modest shots that Facebook will approve :).  You look stunning in these photos and why wouldn't you want your friends to at least see a couple of the less revealing ones?  Digitals can be used in so many ways and can be saved and archived, which is why most of our clients choose to get the 20+ digital package.

 

PAYMENT OPTIONS
I take all forms of payment, including cash, check, credit, money order, PayPal and PayPal Credit.  If using American Express, that does have to be done through PayPal as my payment processor no longer accepts them.

If you decided on your package before your shoot and make payments that will be finished by your shoot date, or you pay in full before your shoot, a 50% discount on your package instead of the 40% that comes with this deal.  If you order any digitals and pay in full before the shoot date, I will also give you a complimentary black and white gallery of all the digitals you purchased ($49 value) to thank you for your pre-session ordering.  You can still add more after your session if you want to add more to your package.  

If you want to order your package before your shoot and pay it or start making payments, you can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know the package you want.  I'll send you the total after tax and then send you an invoice that you can pay or make payments on online.

If you're interested in PayPal Credit, you can use it to purchase your package before or after your session, but if you purchase before the session, you get the pre-session perks.  You can apply for PayPal Credit right now at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit
  It's fast and easy to apply and see if you are accepted.  With PayPal Credit there are no fees or interest if you pay it off within 6 months from the date of purchase.  If you need more than 6 months, you can take as long as you need to pay it off, but there may be fees associated with taking longer.  But you can apply today and if you're accepted, your 6 months doesn't start until the date of purchase.  If you're paying with PayPal credit, be sure to let me know that if you're doing a pre-session payment so I can send you the invoice.  If you're paying at your ordering session, you can just let me know at the ordering session.

If you need a payment plan but didn't get accepted for PayPal Credit, I do in house financing too; however, you only have 3 months if you're doing the payment plan with me and I cannot release anything until all payments are finished.  You need to put $150 down to start the payment plan at your ordering appointment and you'll fill out a form and let me know the dates/amounts that I'm authorized to charge the card you use.  I can take any card type for the payment plan done directly through me.
 

PRICING AND PRODUCTS

Okay, here's what you've been waiting for- the numbers! :)


These are the digital packages
20+ images= $875 (40% off would be $525 and 50% off would be $437.50)
15 images= $800 (40% off would be $480 and 50% off would be $400)
10 image= $750 (40% off would be $450 and 50% off would be $375)



The 20+ package has no limit.  So if I show you 100 images, you can have them all for the same price.  Once you pay for 20, anything beyond that is free.
A black and white gallery of all purchased digitals can be added to your package for just $49. 



Books:
A 20 page book can have anywhere from 20-40 images in it.  I recommend having around 35 images.  If you have more than 40 image you want in the book, you can add extra spreads (2 pages).  Each extra spread can have up to 5 images and is $40 per spread.
20 page 8x11 Crystal Glance Flush Mount Album $1400 (20-40 images) (40% off would be $840 and 50% off would be $700)

8x10 and smaller= $70

Canvases can be added if you've purchased a book or digitals:
30x40= $500
20x30= $425
16x20= $350



Deal Packages:
Our deal packages are our best value and what most clients get.  I decided to offer this package because most of my clients want a physical product, but they have tons they love that won't fit in the book and they don't want to lose their images.  So these packages makes it easier to get a book and still have all the digitals so you don't lose anything you love.
Package 1: 20+ digitals and 20 page 8x6 Little Black Book $975 (normally $1750) (40% off would be $585 and 50% off would be $487.50)

OR
Package 2: 20+ digitals, black and whites of digitals and 20 page 8x11  Crystal Glance Flush Mount Album $1525 (normally $2145) (40% off would be $915 and 50% off would be $762.50)


 

 

DON'T LOSE YOUR IMAGES

You look stunning!  Don't lose these images!  Choose your favorites and then decide which package works best for you.  If you need a payment plan, just let me know and we'll get that set up.  

I have a promotion going on right now on our two most popular items.  Most people get the 20+ digital package and the Little Black Book.  If you decide to get the 20+ digitals and the Little Black Book, you can get them for a total of $975 right now instead of the $1750 they normally are.  Or you can upgrade that deal package to include the black and whites and get the Crystal Glance album for just $550 more!

Boudoir : What to Expect and How to Prepare -Holiday Boudoir Mini Sessions Tacoma Studio https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/11/boudoir-what-to-expect-and-how-to-prepare--holiday-boudoir-mini-sessions-tacoma-studio

Why Boudoir?
Boudoir photography is quickly becoming popular.  The biggest reason is that these sexy photos make great gifts.  They can be given from a bride to her groom on the wedding day or as a honeymoon gift.  They can be given from a military significant other to her deployed soldier. They can also be given as a birthday, Christmas or anniversary gift, or just because.

 

What a lot of people don't consider is that these photos also make great gifts for you to give yourself, ladies.  Most of my clients come here feeling a little nervous and insecure about their bodies.  When they leave, they tell me that the shoot was so much fun and an awesome experience.  In fact, many of my clients let me know that they'll be back in a few months to do it again.  When they come back to view the photos, they're always in love with them.  I've had so many of my clients tell me that they've never seen themselves so beautiful.  They thank me for showing them how stunning they really are, and most of them end up getting all the digitals and a book because they don't want to leave these photos behind.  This really is a fun, confidence building experience.  I promise, you'll love it! :)


What Others Say About Boudoir with Trina:

Boudoir shoots make awesome grooms gifts, and I can get a couple more ladies in before Valentines too. If you want to find out more about the experience, watch this short video :) The boudoir studio is located in North Tacoma, but can also be done at our Mountlake Terrace studio.

PS Photography Boudoir FAQ's:  What to Expect at Your Shoot

A few quick FAQs:
-Your photographer will be a female :)
-
The shoot will be taking place at 2512 S C Street Tacoma, WA 98402
-We highly recommend all of our clients get their hair and makeup professionally done.  If you're looking for recommendations of stylists, we can certainly recommend some.  Check the bottom of this page for some recommendations.  Please come to the studio fully ready so that getting your hair and makeup ready will not take out of your shoot time.
-For a 20 minute session, we can only do one outfit.  
What people choose to wear varies greatly. Some people like to wear a cute dress, while others a corset, cute bra set, night gown, jersey, topless...  Or you can let me dress you in sheets, blankets and Christmas lights that I have at the studio.
-The turn around time is approx. 2 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options.  $40 for 5 day turn around and $20 for 10 day turn around time.  I likely won't go over these options, so please bring it up in an email before or right after your shoot if you know you'll want rush editing.
-You can bring a friend to the shoot if you wish, but she will need to be a female. Friends are NOT permitted to take photos with their camera or cell phone.  If I see someone taking photos during the shoot I will ask them to stop and things will probably be awkward from that point on.  If they continue, the shoot will be over and any remaining session time will be forfeited.  If you are bringing a friend to your shoot, it is your responsibility to let them know that other than the hired photographer, photography is NOT permitted in the studio at any time. 
-Once your photos are done, you'll come to my downtown Tacoma location and choose the ones you want. All photo ordering sessions happen at my downtown Tacoma office.  There are no exceptions unless you pay in advance for all the digitals or the digitals and the book.  Unless you're purchasing all the digitals, you do have to come meet in person and view them.  I do not ever release anything online that hasn't been purchased.  All decisions do have to be made at this appointment.
-All our clients love their photos.  Most clients spend between $875-$1500 on images/products for full sessions.  With this deal we will be discounting everything to 40% off.  If you decide on your package before your shoot and want to pay in full before the shoot email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and you'll get 50% off instead of 40% off.  You can view the full pricing guide here.  
-If you're unable to pay in full, you can set up a payment plan or use PayPal credit.  If you're interested in looking into PayPal Credit, you can do so at
https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit  They offer 6 month with no interest and no fees.
-Any images you get in a digital format are for digital use only.  Any prints you would like do have to be ordered through us.  We take great pride in our work and want you to have beautifully displayed images that have been professionally printed.
-All photos have basic retouching done, and will have skin softening. If you want advanced editing on more photos, such as more skin softening and body contouring, that can be done for $20 per edit, per image.  Certain edits may need to be outsourced and I'll have to provide a custom quote for those.  Most people love the photos with the original edits, and rarely does anyone request advanced editing, so I recommend you view the photos first, and then decide if you want to add extra editing to your package.
-I will not use your photos in my portfolio without your permission.
-All shoots, photo ordering sessions and print/album pick ups are by appointment only.  Please only show up if you have a confirmed appointment.  To schedule a shoot appointment, go to
http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  For all other appointments, email me at trina@psphotography-video.com.
-All scheduling happens online at http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  I recommend scheduling from a computer and not a mobile device as mobile devices sometimes don't finish the booking process. Once you schedule you'll get an auto confirmation in your email.  If you don't get that auto confirmation, message us at trina@psphotography-video.com to verify that you're on the calendar.
-Any dates showing on the calendar that do not show time slots are already fully booked.  If someone cancels for that day, the time slot will appear back on the calendar at that time.  What's listed on the calendar is my complete availability.
-If you have any questions about your appointment that have not been addressed here, you can messages me at trina@psphotography-video.com Please do NOT message me on Facebook messenger. I do not have it on my phone and will likely not get any messages sent through messenger.  Even if I do get a message and respond to it, please do all future correspondence through my email at trina@psphotograph-video.com   
-If you get to your shoot early, you can text me at 206-900-1336 and if I'm free I'll let you know that you can come in. 
-There are no refunds or reschedules for this special.  Your $45 session fee doubles as a retainer to reserve your date.
-If you are more than 10 minutes late and do not text or email me, I will assume you are a no show and may leave the studio or start my next session.  If you are going to be more than 10 minutes late, you must email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and/or text 206-900-1336 letting me know you are still coming and we will shoot with whatever time is still left in your time-slot.  I'm a fast and efficient photographer, so even if we don't have a lot of time, I can still get a ton of amazing things, so please don't stress if you're late.  I am unable to go over time as I will likely have another appointment after yours.  If you miss your appointment or show up late, you will not receive a refund.  All retainers/session fees are non-refundable.  So please make sure to map on the address in advance and plan for traffic and other obstacles. 

-Only females will be in studio/at the location during your shoot. Often it will only be me (Trina).  Sometimes my administrative assistant, Grace, will be in studio. 
-The main entrance to the studio is a garage door.  I keep it shut during shoots and typically keep it shut between shoots so we don't let all the heat out.  When you arrive, just text me at 206-900-1336 and let me know you're there.  Please only use that number on the shoot date and ordering appointment date.  Any other time, please email me at trina@psphotography-video.com as I only keep that phone on my on shoot and appointment dates.  If you arrive early and text me, I may not be able to get right back to you as I might be in a shoot still.
-After you text, once I'm ready I'll open the garage door and let you in. Please do not try to open the garage door yourself as if it's closed I may not be ready for you.

-To view more of our boudoir work, you can go to http://psphotography-video.com and click the link for the boudoir section.  Or for more recent work you can view photos in the boudoir group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/boudoirphotographer/
-If you have anymore questions, you can contact me at trina@psphotography-video.com and Grace (my administrative assistant) or I will get back to you.  
-Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you!




Hair and Makeup Recommendations
-Most clients love their photos even more if they got their hair and makeup professionally done. I also find those that get their hair and makeup done often feel more confident during the shoot.  Here are some ladies that I have worked with and highly recommend.  If you do decide to go with one of them, make sure you let them know that you're having your shoot with me.  Please note that because I'm often shooting back to back, your hair and makeup time cannot happen at my studio.  You will have to go to your stylist's location, have them come to you if they're willing, or meet them somewhere.  Thanks for understanding, and feel free to check out these awesome ladies!

HOW TO BOOK THE BOUDOIR BLACK FRIDAY DEAL:
Ready to book?  The $59 session fee is a non-refundable retainer to hold your date- NO EXCEPTIONS.  It must be paid within 12 hours of receiving the online invoice.  If you need to reschedule, you must message us at trina@psphotography-video.com and give us at least 72 hours notice.  Any reschedules, need to take place no later than July 2019 and must be chosen from a date/time still available on our calendar.  You can reschedule 1 time with no fees if done within 72 hours of your shoot.  After that, there is a $29 rescheduling fee for any reschedules.

To schedule, go to our online calendar at https://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  The dates listed on the calendar are my complete availability.  We do all of our bookings online, so you'll have to use this link to schedule. Sometimes it gives mobile devices issues, so if you're not able to schedule from a mobile device, you'll have to use a computer.  Once you are scheduled, you'll receive an auto confirmation.  If for any reason you do not get the confirmation, please message me at trina@psphotography-video.com to make sure that your appointment went through.  


Steps to Book a Session:
-STEP 1: Read the What to Expect and How to Prepare Guide and Review the 2018 Pricing Guide
-STEP 2: CLICK https://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina
-STEP 3: Choose a date from the drop down menu.  
-STEP 4: Select CODE (do NOT select session fee or it will try to make you pay the full $300)
-STEP 5: Choose a time listed.  If no times are listed at this step, that means that date is fully booked and you'll have to go back and try a different date.  Most dates will have time availability, but especially any available weekend dates book quickly.
-STEP 6: Fill out your contact info.  To get the END OF THE YEAR DEAL, in the CODE box, type: 2018
Make sure you type your info, especially your email address, correctly or we may not be able to contact you.  Also make sure you list the CODE "2018" so you don't get an invoice for the full price.  The online invoice will be emailed to you within 12 hours of you scheduling and you'll have 12 hours to have it paid from the time it is delivered.  Do NOT schedule unless you're prepared to pay the $59 session fee within 12 hours of receiving the invoice.
-STEP 7: Click the "reserve my appointment" button and you'll receive an auto confirmation in your email inbox.  If you do not get this confirmation, please message us at trina@psphotography-video.com to make sure your appointment went through.  


Once all of those things are done, we'll get an email with your appointment info.  I will send you an online invoice.  If that isn't paid right away, I (Trina- your photographer) will have Grace (my assistant) or Jonathan (my husband and business partner) call you to take your $59 payment.  We can take any card type except for American Express. From the time we attempt to contact you, you'll have 12 hours to make the payment.  If we reach out to you when you're unavailable, please try to get back to them as soon as possible so that we know you really want the shoot. If you want to cancel your shoot, please contact us rather than just ignoring us or not showing.


DETAILS:
Again, this END OF THE YEAR DEAL is only available for any date currently listed on our calendar.  So if you want to take advantage of it, schedule as soon as possible.  Once I feel at capacity, I will no longer offer this deal, and it is on a first come first serve basis.  This deal will close on New Years Day or sooner if I reach capacity before that time.  My calendar does fill quickly, so if you want in on this deal, I recommend booking ASAP

Please do NOT message me through Facebook as I may not get the message.  trina@psphotography-video.com is the best way to reach us and Grace or I will respond to you.  Before messaging with questions about the shoot, be sure to check out the what to expect and how to prepare guide as most questions we get asked are answered in there.  



Quick FAQ:
-The studio is located at 2512 S C Street Tacoma, WA 98402.

Cuddle Sessions : What to Expect and How to Prepare https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/10/cuddle-sessions-what-to-expect-and-how-to-prepare  

Why Cuddle Sessions?
It's important when you're in a relationship to take time away to focus on each other and your love.  This 45 minute session is time for you guys to focus on each other while we capture your love in photos that you can look at for a lifetime and share with your family and friends.  Don't don't back in sharing your love for each other and showing it off.  Hang photos on your wall, give as gifts to family members and show off on social media!

 

PS Photography Cuddle Session FAQ's:  What to Expect at Your Shoot

A few quick FAQs:
-Jonathan or Trina will be your photographer
-
The shoot will be taking place at our 2500 sq ft studio, located at 2512 S C St, Tacoma, WA 98402.
-The main entrance is a garage door.  You can park in front of the garage door or across the street on the street. 
-If the garage door is closed when you arrive, text 206-900-1336 letting us know you are there.

-Although not necessary, we recommend our clients get their hair and makeup professionally done.  If you're looking for recommendations of stylists, we can certainly recommend some.  Check the bottom of this page for some recommendations.  Please come to the studio fully ready so that your getting ready time will not take out of the shoot time.
-For a 45 minute session, we recommend 1-2 outfits.  Since change time does take out of the shoot time, we are not able to
accommodate more than 1outfit change.  
-What people choose to wear varies greatly and is completely up to you; however, note that these are NOT couples boudoir shoots and you do need to be fully dressed.
-The turn around time is approx. 1-2 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options.  $40 for 3 day turn around and $20 for a guaranteed 7 day turn around time.  I likely won't go over these options, so please bring it up in an email before or right after your shoot if you know you'll want rush editing.
-Please do not bring friends or children to the studio as it makes it more difficult to do the shoot.
-Once your photos are done, you'll come to my downtown Tacoma location and choose the ones you want. All photo ordering sessions happen at my downtown Tacoma office.  There are no exceptions unless you pay in advance for all the digitals or the digitals and the book.  Unless you're purchasing all the digitals, you do have to come meet in person and view them.  I do not ever release anything online that hasn't been purchased.  All decisions do have to be made at this appointment.
-All our clients love their photos.  Most clients spend between $750+ on images/products.  You can view the full pricing guide here.  If you're unable to pay in full, you can set up a payment plan or use PayPal credit.  If you're interested in looking into PayPal Credit, you can do so at
https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit  They offer 6 month with no interest and no fees.
-Any images you get in a digital format are for digital use only.  Any prints you would like do have to be ordered through us.  We take great pride in our work and want you to have beautifully displayed images that have been professionally printed.
-All photos have basic retouching done, and will have skin softening. If you want advanced editing on more photos, such as more skin softening and body contouring, that can be done for $20 per edit, per image.  Certain edits may need to be outsourced and I'll have to provide a custom quote for those.  Most people love the photos with the original edits, and rarely does anyone request advanced editing, so I recommend you view the photos first, and then decide if you want to add extra editing to your package.
-All shoots, photo ordering sessions and print/album pick ups are by appointment only.  Please only show up if you have a confirmed appointment.  To schedule a shoot appointment, go to
http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina and choose a date with Cuddle Session listed.  For all other appointments, email me at trina@psphotography-video.com.
-All scheduling happens online at http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  I recommend scheduling from a computer and not a mobile device as mobile devices sometimes don't finish the booking process. Once you schedule you'll get an auto confirmation in your email.  If you don't get that auto confirmation, message us at trina@psphotography-video.com to verify that you're on the calendar.
-Any dates showing on the calendar that do not show time slots are already fully booked.  If someone cancels for that day, the time slot will appear back on the calendar at that time.  I typically don't book more than 4 weeks out and cannot take custom date requests at this time.  What's listed on the calendar is my complete availability.
-If you have any questions about your appointment that have not been addressed here, you can messages me at trina@psphotography-video.com Please do NOT message me on Facebook messenger. I do not have it on my phone and will likely not get any messages sent through messenger.  Even if I do get a message and respond to it, please do all future correspondence through my email at trina@psphotograph-video.com   
-Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your shoot.  If you get there early, you can text me at 206-900-1336 and if I'm free I'll let you know that you can come in. 
-If you need to reschedule I need at least 24 hours notice and there is a $29 rescheduling fee.
-If you are more than 20 minutes late, I will assume you are a no show and may leave the studio or start my next session.  If you are going to be more than 20 minutes late, you must email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and/or text 206-900-1336 letting me know you are still coming and we will shoot with whatever time is still left in your time-slot.  I'm a fast and efficient photographer, so even if we don't have a lot of time, I can still get a ton of amazing things, so please don't stress if you're late.  I am unable to go over time as I will likely have another appointment after yours.  If you miss your appointment or show up late, you will not receive a refund.  All retainers/session fees are non-refundable.  So please make sure to map on the address in advance and plan for traffic and other obstacles. 

-Be sure to participate in the group https://www.facebook.com/groups/boudoirphotographer/
-If you have anymore questions, you can contact me at trina@psphotography-video.com and Grace (my administrative assistant) or I will get back to you.  
-Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you!




Hair and Makeup Recommendations
-Most clients love their photos even more if they got their hair and makeup professionally done. I also find those that get their hair and makeup done often feel more confident during the shoot.  Here are some ladies that I have worked with and highly recommend.  If you do decide to go with one of them, make sure you let them know that you're having your shoot with me.  Please note that because I'm often shooting back to back, your hair and makeup time cannot happen at my studio.  You will have to go to your stylist's location, have them come to you if they're willing, or meet them somewhere.  Thanks for understanding, and feel free to check out these awesome ladies!

Tacoma Cuddle Sessions PS Photography- 2019 Pricing https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/10/tacoma-cuddle-sessions-ps-photography--2019-pricing

THE PHOTO ORDERING PROCESS
Unless I have a sale going, the session fee for a 45 minute session is $300.  That covers the shoot itself and the digitals and products are sold separately at the ordering session that takes place approx 1-2 weeks after the session.

The only way to skip the ordering session is if you know you want all the digitals (the 20+ digital package) or the digital and the book package.  You can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know and I'll send you an online invoice.  Once paid and once the images are ready, I'll email you the link to your password protected online gallery where you can download your digitals from.  If you're also getting a book, I'll send you the directions for choosing for your book through the online gallery.


Everyone loves their photos and most people decide to get all of the digitals because there are so many they love, and a book so they can have a physical product.  

I mean, if you spent time and effort getting stunning photos, why wouldn't you want them all?  So although there is no pressure to get anything specific, I bet that you will love your images so much that you want them all and possibly a book or physical product as well :)

First, I'm going to be upfront, all decisions have to be made at your photo ordering appointment and all sales are final.  I'm not able to set up multiple appointments per person, so you need to be prepared to make all decisions at this appointment.  If you do need an additional appointment, I sometimes make an exception but there is a $39 fee for a second appointment.  You must attend your appointment.  You cannot send someone else in place of yourself.  If you send someone else, I will have to send them away and will not be able to show the photos.  Children may not come to this appointment, with the exception of young infants.  If a child between 1 and 17 is brought to the appointment, we will have to reschedule. If you're not able to make it to your ordering appointment, please give me as much notice as possible as I'm probably paying for childcare for that time and may not be able to schedule someone else for that slot.  If you don't show up to your appointment or give me less than 24 hours notice of a reschedule, there will be a $39 rescheduling fee.  This fee cannot be waived.  Anything you don't sign a model release for and do not order will be deleted.  So please come prepared to order everything that you want to keep as I don't hold on to images not purchased and that a model release isn't signed for.  If you are not ready to place your order, please do not schedule an ordering appointment.  Rather, let me know that you need to wait and I can give you my updated schedule for a time when you are ready to order.

Some ladies set a budget for themselves and then find they love a lot more images than they expected and they don't want to leave without them.  If you find yourself in this situation, don't worry, I'll work with you :). We can set up a payment plan where you only pay $150 upfront and set up payments over the next 12 weeks on dates that work for you.  There are no fees or interest if paid within 3 months and you'll get everything once the final payment is finished.  Or you can use PayPal Credit, which is what most of my clients on a payment plan do.  With PayPal Credit, if approved you can pay in full on the spot and receive everything upfront.  They will give you 6 month with no interest.  If you need more time than 6 months, you can take as long as you need, but then there are some fees associated with it once you're beyond the initial 6 months.  You can apply for PayPal Credit at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit

We created beautiful art here, and I don't want to see them deleted either.  So we'll work out a plan together if you need that.

 

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR CUDDLE PHOTOS

One of the most common question I get, is what should you do with these photos.  You have a ton of photos that you love and don't want deleted, but now what do you do with them?  The two things to consider when choosing what to buy are what you plan to do with the images and which images you love.

First, if you want to flaunt your love for each other, I recommend getting a 16x20 or bigger print or canvas to hang in your home.   Or you can get a few 11x14 or 8x10 prints to make a collage on your wall.

Many people also love to get extra prints to give to family members.  Some even frame them and give them as a Christmas gift.

We offer book options for those who want to have an album to look through or to have out on your coffee table so guests can look through it and see your love for each other.


Digitals are our best selling product.  People like to keep these memories.  Although I cannot release the printing rights over the images since I want to maintain the quality, you can do whatever you want with these images in the digital format.  Digitals are such an easy way to preserve these memories.  If you have the digitals, you can always order prints through us.  You can save them to your computer and have access to them whenever you want.  And don't forget to show off these gorgeous photos of the two of you on your social media pages :).  You will look stunning in these photos and the will show off your love and passion for each other.  Your friends and family will love seeing them.  Digitals can be used in so many ways and can be saved and archived, which is why most of our clients choose to get the 20+ digital package.

 

PAYMENT OPTIONS
I take all forms of payment, including cash, check, credit, money order, PayPal and PayPal Credit.  If using American Express, that does have to be done through PayPal as my payment processor no longer accepts them.

If you decided on your package before your shoot and make payments that will be finished by your shoot date, or you pay in full before your shoot, I will give you a $50 discount on your package.  If you order any digitals, I will also give you a complimentary black and white gallery of all the digitals you purchased ($49 value) to thank you for your pre-session ordering.  You can still add more after your session if you want to add more to your package.  

If you want to order your package before your shoot and pay it or start making payments, you can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know the package you want.  I'll send you the total after tax and then send you an invoice that you can pay or make payments on online.

If you're interested in PayPal Credit, you can use it to purchase your package before or after your session, but if you purchase before the session, you get the pre-session perks.  You can apply for PayPal Credit right now at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit
  It's fast and easy to apply and see if you are accepted.  With PayPal Credit there are no fees or interest if you pay it off within 6 months from the date of purchase.  If you need more than 6 months, you can take as long as you need to pay it off, but there may be fees associated with taking longer.  But you can apply today and if you're accepted, your 6 months doesn't start until the date of purchase.  If you're paying with PayPal credit, be sure to let me know that if you're doing a pre-session payment so I can send you the invoice.  If you're paying at your ordering session, you can just let me know at the ordering session.

If you need a payment plan but didn't get accepted for PayPal Credit, I do in house financing too; however, you only have 3 months if you're doing the payment plan with me and I cannot release anything until all payments are finished.  You need to put $150 down to start the payment plan at your ordering appointment and you'll fill out a form and let me know the dates/amounts that I'm authorized to charge the card you use.  I can take any card type except for American Express for the payment plan done directly through me.

Couples Cuddle Sessions in PS Photography Tacoma Studio https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/10/couples-cuddle-sessions-in-ps-photography-tacoma-studio

COUPLES CUDDLE SESSIONS


Hello gorgeous ladies!  I know you've been waiting for all the details on our cuddle session deal, so here is all the info :)  Remember, these are in studio couples cuddle sessions (engagement style) and not couples boudoir.


First I want to talk about who this shoot is for and why it's an amazing thing to do.  This shoot is for any couple.  You can be dating, engaged, newly weds, or a couple who has been married for a long time.  Your marital/relationship status doesn't matter.  So many couples don't get quality photos of themselves until the wedding or engagement.  Then once the wedding is over, the couple often neglects to continue documenting their relationship. If they have children, they might get family photos, but they don't get photos of just the two of them to celebrate their relationship.  

You need to celebrate and document the two of you.  It's so important and really adds to the health and strength of the relationship.  It's not just about having beautiful photos of my husband and me together (but that is an important element), but rather about the experience. The shoot itself is time for us to have fun and bond.  With these sessions, you have that time set aside to cuddle, love each other and focus on each other while someone documents that.  When we get our photos done, we gaze lovingly into each others eyes.  We get to hold hands.  Embrace while saying nothing.  We can strongly feel our love while having fun with each other.  Our love is being documented and celebrated.  We get to take that time to just stop all the busyness and stresses of life and just focus one each other.  The experience is amazing, but the images are powerful too.  The images are truly an outward expression of the love you have for each other.  You always have them to look at and feel that emotion and bond between the two of you.  It's also a way to show your love to the world. 


I hope I've sold you on the idea of these sessions, because I truly believe in them.  My husband and I regularly get these shoots done for ourselves.  We find it to be an important part of strengthening our bond.  

Now I want to tell you a little bit more about us and why you should use us :)  I'm Trina, and my husband and I both shoot these sessions.  So you'll be working with one of us.  We both have won many awards for our photographic abilities, including being named the #1 wedding photographer and #1 portrait photographer in the King5 Evening Best of Western WA multiple times.  We step outside the norms of photography.  We go that extra mile to get amazing lighting and poses.  We will certainly guide and direct you in the posing, but we do it in such a way that many of the photos look more candid because during that pose we're still capturing your natural expressions and emotion.  Jonathan has a degree in film from the USC School of Cinematic Arts and brings that film and cinema background to the shoot.  



DETAILS:

This deal includes a 45 minute session.  A 45 minute session usually is $300 for the session fee (the session fee covers the shoot itself and not digitals, prints or products- those are sold separately).  Approx 2-3 weeks after your session your photos will be ready for viewing.  You'll meet us at our downtown Tacoma office.  The location is 539 Broadway, Tacoma, WA 98402.  At this appointment you'll choose what you want to purchase.  There's never any pressure to purchase as we only want you to get what you love, but we feel confident that you'll love these and want them all :)  If for any reason you want to skip this viewing/ordering session, the only way to do that is if you know you'll want at least all the digitals.  In that case, we'll send you an online invoice and once that's paid we'll send you an online gallery where you can view and share your images for up to 6 months and where you can download them as many times and to as many places as you want within that time. 


The session fee for this deal is ONLY $49!!!  We've reduced it from $300 to just $49 but for a limited time and for a limited number of sessions.  As an added bonus, we're giving you a free $50 credit to go towards anything you decide to purchase.  If you decide to get all the digitals, we're also throwing in black and white copies of the images.

Click HERE to view our full pricing guide with the discounts listed.

Since this is such a drastic discount we're only offering it to the first 25 people who book.  We won't be offering these again this year, so if you want a cuddle session with us, book now!  This $49 session fee doubles as a non-refundable retainer and holds your slot for you.  If you need to reschedule, we need at least 24 hours notice and there is a $29 rescheduling fee and you'll need to choose from one of the dates currently listed on our calendar.

Tacoma Boudoir PS Photography- 2019 Pricing https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/8/tacoma-boudoir-ps-photography--2019-pricing

THE PHOTO ORDERING PROCESS
Unless I have a sale going, the session fee for a 45 minute session is $300.  That covers the shoot itself and the digitals and products are sold separately at the ordering session that takes place approx 2-3 weeks after the session.

The only way to skip the ordering session is if you know you want all the digitals (the 20+ digital package) or the digital and the book package.  You can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know and I'll send you an online invoice.  Once paid and once the images are ready, I'll email you the link to your password protected online gallery where you can download your digitals from.  If you're also getting a book, I'll send you the directions for choosing for your book through the online gallery.

Some ladies set a budget for themselves and then find they love a lot more images than they expected and they don't want to leave without them.  If you find yourself in this situation, don't worry, I'll work with you :). We can set up a payment plan where you only pay $150 upfront and set up payments over the next 12 weeks on dates that work for you.  There are no fees or interest if paid within 3 months and you'll get everything once the final payment is finished.  Or you can use PayPal Credit, which is what most of my clients on a payment plan do.  With PayPal Credit, if approved you can pay in full on the spot and receive everything upfront.  They will give you 6 month with no interest.  If you need more time than 6 months, you can take as long as you need, but then there are some fees associated with it once you're beyond the initial 6 months.  You can apply for PayPal Credit at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit

We created beautiful art here, and I don't want to see them deleted either.  So we'll work out a plan together if you need that.

 

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOS

One of the most common question I get, is what should you do with these photos.  You have a ton of photos that you love and don't want deleted, but now what do you do with them?  The two things to consider when choosing what to buy are what you plan to do with the images and which images you love.

First, if you want to flaunt your gorgeousness, I recommend getting a 16x20 or bigger print or canvas to hang in your room.  Some people like to get three 16x20 prints to put above the bed.  For those of you who are concerned about not showing certain types of images in public, there will be modest pictures too :).

For those giving these as a gift, I'd recommend doing an album or Little Black Book.  That way you are handing the person a tangible gift that they can look at whenever they want.  The really nice thing about the books are that they're small and versatile.  If the person wants to display the book on their nightstand, they can leave it out. If you guys want to keep these images between the two of you, the book is nice and small and can easily be tucked away. 

Digitals are our best selling product.  People like to keep these memories.  Although I cannot release the printing rights over the images since I want to maintain the quality, you can do whatever you want with these images in the digital format.  Digitals are such an easy way to preserve these memories.  You can save them to your computer and have access to them whenever you want, you can set them as a screensaver on your computer, a background on your phone, you can put them in a digital frame, you can put them in a slideshow, or just keep them on your phone so you can scroll through them whenever you want that boost of confidence or to show to a friend.  And if you want to show these off on Facebook or other social media, there will be more modest shots that Facebook will approve :).  You look stunning in these photos and why wouldn't you want your friends to at least see a couple of the less revealing ones?  Digitals can be used in so many ways and can be saved and archived, which is why most of our clients choose to get the 20+ digital package.

 

PAYMENT OPTIONS
I take all forms of payment, including cash, check, credit, money order, PayPal and PayPal Credit.  If using American Express, that does have to be done through PayPal as my payment processor no longer accepts them.

If you decided on your package before your shoot and make payments that will be finished by your shoot date, or you pay in full before your shoot, I will give you a $50 discount on your package.  If you order any digitals and pre-pay, I will also give you a complimentary black and white gallery of all the digitals you purchased ($49 value) to thank you for your pre-session ordering.  You can still add more after your session if you want to add more to your package.  

If you want to order your package before your shoot and pay it or start making payments, you can email me at trina@psphotography-video.com and let me know the package you want.  I'll send you the total after tax and then send you an invoice that you can pay or make payments on online.

If you're interested in PayPal Credit, you can use it to purchase your package before or after your session, but if you purchase before the session, you get the pre-session perks.  You can apply for PayPal Credit right now at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit
  It's fast and easy to apply and see if you are accepted.  With PayPal Credit there are no fees or interest if you pay it off within 6 months from the date of purchase.  If you need more than 6 months, you can take as long as you need to pay it off, but there may be fees associated with taking longer.  But you can apply today and if you're accepted, your 6 months doesn't start until the date of purchase.  If you're paying with PayPal credit, be sure to let me know that if you're doing a pre-session payment so I can send you the invoice.  If you're paying at your ordering session, you can just let me know at the ordering session.

If you need a payment plan but didn't get accepted for PayPal Credit, I do in house financing too; however, you only have 3 months if you're doing the payment plan with me and I cannot release anything until all payments are finished.  You need to put $150 down to start the payment plan at your ordering appointment and you'll fill out a form and let me know the dates/amounts that I'm authorized to charge the card you use.  I can take any card type except for American Express for the payment plan done directly through me.
 

PRICING AND PRODUCTS

Okay, here's what you've been waiting for- the numbers! :)


These are the digital packages
20+ images= $875
15 images= $800
10 image= $750

The 20+ package has no limit.  So if I show you 100 images, you can have them all for the same price.  Once you pay for 20, anything beyond that is free.
A black and white gallery of all purchased digitals can be added to your package for just $49. 



Books:
A 20 page book can have anywhere from 20-40 images in it.  I recommend having around 35 images.  If you have more than 40 image you want in the book, you can add extra spreads (2 pages).  Each extra spread can have up to 5 images and is $40 per spread.
20 page 8x11 Crystal Glance Flush Mount Album $1400 (20-40 images)

Canvases can be added if you've purchased a book or digitals:
30x40= $500
20x30= $425
16x20= $350



Deal Packages:
Our deal packages are our best value and what most clients get.  I decided to offer this package because most of my clients want a physical product, but they have tons they love that won't fit in the book and they don't want to lose their images.  So these packages makes it easier to get a book and still have all the digitals so you don't lose anything you love.
Package 1: 20+ digitals and 20 page 8x6 Little Black Book $975 (normally $1750)
OR

Package 2: 20+ digitals, black and whites of digitals and 20 page 8x11  Crystal Glance Flush Mount Album $1525 (normally $2145)


 

 

DON'T LOSE YOUR IMAGES

You look stunning!  Don't lose these images!  Choose your favorites and then decide which package works best for you.  If you need a payment plan, just let me know and we'll get that set up.  

I have a promotion going on right now on our two most popular items.  Most people get the 20+ digital package and the Little Black Book.  If you decide to get the 20+ digitals and the Little Black Book, you can get them for a total of $975 right now instead of the $1750 they normally are.  Or you can upgrade that deal package to include the black and whites and get the Crystal Glance album for just $550 more!

You can view reviews and what people are saying about working with me at http://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/4/boudoir-reviews-for-trina-with-ps-photography-in-tacoma-wa


Please do not book until you've reviewed the What to Expect and How to Prepare Guide and the Pricing Guide.



HOW TO BOOK THE SUMMER BOUDOIR DEAL:
Ready to book?  The $75 session fee is a non-refundable retainer to hold your date- NO EXCEPTIONS.  It must be paid at the time of booking.

Please make sure that you're available on that date.  One free reschedule is allowed if it's made at least 10 days before the shoot.  If a reschedule is made less than 10 days from the shoot, there is a $29 rescheduling fee and the shoot has to be rescheduled for November date or earlier that is showing as available on the calendar. 

To schedule, go to our online calendar at https://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  The dates listed on the calendar are my complete availability.  We do all of our bookings online, so you'll have to use this link to schedule. Sometimes it gives mobile devices issues, so if you're not able to schedule from a mobile device, you'll have to use a computer.  Once you are scheduled, you'll receive an auto confirmation.  If for any reason you do not get the confirmation, please message me at trina@psphotography-video.com to make sure that your appointment went through.  


Steps to Book a Session:
-STEP 1: Read the What to Expect and How to Prepare Guide and Review the 2019 Pricing Guide
-STEP 2: CLICK https://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina
-STEP 3: Choose a date from the drop down menu.  
-STEP 4: Select SUMMER DEAL from the drop down menu.  Do NOT select Session Fee or Code or this deal will NOT apply.
-STEP 5: Choose a time listed.  If no times are listed at this step, that means that date is fully booked and you'll have to go back and try a different date.  Most dates will have time availability, but especially any available weekend dates book quickly.  Sometimes if the date is full, it has a message that says there are no appointment times for the month.  That is a glitch in the system.  Only that date, not the month, is full.  So you can go back and check other dates.
-STEP 6: Fill out your contact info.  To get the SUMMER DEAL, in the CODE box, type: SUMMER
Make sure you type your info, especially your email address, correctly or we may not be able to contact you.  Also make sure you list the CODE "SUMMER" so you don't get an invoice for the full price.  
-STEP 7: Click "proceed to payment."  Sometimes this step is a little slow, so you may have to wait a minute for it to load.  Once the page loads, check the info and then click "proceed to checkout."  It will then take you to PayPal where you can pay the $75 session fee with PayPal, credit/debit, or PayPal Credit.  This payment is a non refundable (no exceptions) retainer that reserves your date and time.
-STEP 8: Once the payment is made you'll receive an auto confirmation in your email inbox with the shoot details.  If you do not get this confirmation, please message us at trina@psphotography-video.com to make sure your appointment went through.  


If you do not pay the session fee, your appointment is NOT booked.  Do not schedule until you're prepared to pay the session fee.


DETAILS:
Again, this SUMMER DEAL is only available for any date currently listed on our calendar.  So if you want to take advantage of it, schedule as soon as possible.  Once I feel at capacity, I will no longer offer this deal, and it is on a first come first serve basis.  This deal will close on 9/15 or sooner if I reach capacity before that time.  My calendar does fill quickly, so if you want in on this deal, I recommend booking ASAP.

Couples and Engagement Photos in Seattle and Tacoma with PS Photography & Video https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/8/couples-and-engagement-photos-in-seattle-and-tacoma-with-ps-photography-video

COUPLES AND ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS


Hello gorgeous ladies!  I know you've been waiting for all the details on our couples session deal, so here is all the info :)  Remember, these are outdoor couples sessions (engagement style) and not couples boudoir.


First I want to talk about who this shoot is for and why it's an amazing thing to do.  This shoot is for any couple.  You can be dating, engaged, newly weds, or a couple who has been married for a long time.  Your marital/relationship status doesn't matter.  So many couples don't get quality photos of themselves until the wedding or engagement.  Then once the wedding is over, the couple often neglects to continue documenting their relationship. If they have children, they might get family photos, but they don't get photos of just the two of them to celebrate their relationship.  

You need to celebrate and document the two of you.  It's so important and really adds to the health and strength of the relationship.  It's not just about having beautiful photos of my husband and me together (but that is an important element), but rather about the experience. The shoot itself is time for us to have fun and bond.  I can close my eyes when he spins me.  We gaze lovingly into each others eyes.  We get to walk holding hands.  Embrace while saying nothing.  We can strongly feel our love while having fun with each other.  Our love is being documented and celebrated.  We get to take that time to just stop all the busyness and stresses of life and just focus one each other.  The experience is amazing, but the images are powerful too.  The images are truly an outward expression of the love you have for each other.  You always have them to look at and feel that emotion and bond between the two of you.  It's also a way to show your love to the world. 


I hope I've sold you on the idea of these sessions, because I truly believe in them.  My husband and I regularly get these shoots done for ourselves.  We find it to be an important part of strengthening our bond.  

Now I want to tell you a little bit more about us and why you should use us :)  I'm Trina, and my husband and I both shoot these sessions.  So you'll be working with one of us, but likely Jonathan as he does the majority of our couples shoots.  We both have won many awards for our photographic abilities, including being named the #1 wedding photographer and #1 portrait photographer in the King5 Evening Best of Western WA multiple times.  We step outside the norms of photography.  We go that extra mile to get amazing lighting and poses.  We will certainly guide and direct you in the posing, but we do it in such a way that many of the photos look more candid because during that pose we're still capturing your natural expressions and emotion.  Jonathan has a degree in film from the USC School of Cinematic Arts and brings that film and cinema background to the shoot.  



DETAILS:

This deal includes a 45 minute session.  A 45 minute session usually is $300 for the session fee (the session fee covers the shoot itself and not digitals, prints or products- those are sold separately).  Approx 2-3 weeks after your session your photos will be ready for viewing.  You'll meet us at our downtown Tacoma office.  The location is 539 Broadway, Tacoma, WA 98402.  At this appointment you'll choose what you want to purchase.  There's never any pressure to purchase as we only want you to get what you love, but we feel confident that you'll love these and want them all :)  If for any reason you want to skip this viewing/ordering session, the only way to do that is if you know you'll want at least all the digitals.  In that case, we'll send you an online invoice and once that's paid we'll send you an online gallery where you can view and share your images for up to 6 months and where you can download them as many times and to as many places as you want within that time. 


The session fee for this deal is ONLY $25!!!  We've reduced it from $300 to just $25 but for a limited time and for a limited number of sessions.  As an added bonus, any digital images you decide to purchase are half off the regular price.  If you purchase at least 15 digital images, prints are half off and books and canvases will also have discounts.  To top it off, we also offer payment plans, take credit and take PayPal financing. 

Click HERE to view our full pricing guide with the discounts listed.

Since this is such a drastic discount we're only offering it to the first 25 people who book and through Tuesday evening.  So if 25 people have booked before Tuesday evening, we'll close the deal down.  We don't anticipate offering any deals on couples/engagement photos again this year, so if you're interested, book now.  This $25 session fee doubles as a non-refundable retainer and holds your slot for you.  If you need to reschedule, we'll need at least 48 hours notice and you'll have to choose from one of the dates/times still available on our calendar.  We shoot rain or shine, with the exception of thunder storms.

 

LOCATIONS:
Before booking, be sure to check out the different locations so you can choose the location with the setting that fits best with what you're looking for.  Click these locations to see couples photos that we've taken there.  

Pike Place Market
Seattle Center
Opera Alley, Tacoma
Wright Park, Tacoma
South Hill Park, Puyallup

 

BOOKING:

You can book right ONLINE

Once you book, within 12 hours you'll receive an online invoice for the $25.  That needs to be paid within 24 hours of receiving the invoice.



We will not be adding any additional dates or times.  This is our final calendar and appointments are on a first come first serve basis.  Once we are at capacity we will pull this deal down.

Family Photographer - PS Photography https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/6/family-photographer FAMILY PHOTO SESSIONS:

PS PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Hello Gorgeous!  We have our family session calendar up.  Jonathan or I (Trina) will be your photographer.  Jonathan does most of our family sessions, so likely you'll be working with him for these.  These sessions are at a huge discount and we will not be offering these prices again, so if you want this deal, you'll want to book right away.  



I ran a poll in the group and most people were interested in the option of a 15 minute shoot with 5 digital images for $100+tax, but I'm sweetening that deal by offering 15 minute sessions with 15 digital images for $100+tax and I'll have your photos delivered to you via downloadable online gallery just three days after your shoot.  I hate waiting for photos, so I don't want to make you wait longer than that :)  Some people expressed interest in having a longer shoot.  The way our calendar is set up is that there is 15 minutes between each shoot.  So if you book two back to back shoots, we'll give you that 15 minute between time at no cost.  So you can get a 45 minute shoot with 40 digital images delivered in just 3 days for just $200+tax.
 


To schedule:
1) Go to https://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/family and choose the date/location you're interested in.  The calendar doesn't work with all mobile devices, so if it won't let you schedule from your mobile device, I recommend using a computer.
2) Click the "continue to step 2" button
3) It will show you time options.  If no time options are showing, that is because they are already booked and you'll have to go back and choose another date.  Otherwise, if options are still showing, choose the one you're interested in.  If you want a 45 minute shoot, be sure to choose a time that still shows a time available that starts 15 minutes after the time you selected ends.
4) Fill out the form with your contact information.  Make sure you don't have typos in your contact info or we may not be able to reach you.  In the "additional comments" box, please let us know the names and ages of the kids involved, how many people are in your family, or if you're using this for another shoot type such as couples, engagement, graduation, senior, headshots...
5) Click the "reserve my appointment" button and wait to receive a confirmation email stating that your appointment is reserved.  If you don't receive anything from us with 15 minutes of booking, your appointment may not have gone through.  You can email us at trina@psphotography-video.com to check if your appointment was reserved.  
6) If you wanted to take advantage of the 45 minute session you will have to go through the process again and choose the time 15 minutes after the original appointment you scheduled is scheduled to end or the appointment that ends 15 minutes before the appointment you scheduled is scheduled to start.
7) Within 24 hours of scheduling you'll receive an online invoice.  You can pay with any type of card except American Express.  Spots will not be held without a payment. We cannot accept cash or check for these and will not be taking payments the day of the shoot.  Please do NOT schedule if you're not ready to pay.  Payment is due in full within 24 hours of receiving the online invoice, but for those wanting to split it up, after you receive your invoice, email me letting me know you want to split it into two payments and I can send you an invoice for 1/2 of what is due and then the remainder will be due at least 72 hours before your shoot.  That is the only payment option other than paying in full that I can offer right now.  These payments act as non-refundable retainers to hold your date.  There will no refunds and we will not be able to make any exceptions as once you book you're holding a spot that someone else is no longer able to book.  




Thank you so much and we hope to have the opportunity to work with you! <3 :)

Again, this Outdoor Boudoir Deal is only available July 21st and July 28th at Wild Hearts Farm located at 10615 40th Ave E, Tacoma, WA 98446 as listed on our calendar.  So if you want to take advantage of it, schedule as soon as possible.  Once 16 people book, I will no longer offer this deal, and it is on a first come first serve basis.

Quick FAQ:
-The farm is located at 10615 40th AVE E, Tacoma, Washington 98446.
-2-3 outfits typically fits the time best.  No more than 3 outfits. There are neighbors, so although the farm is on 5 acres I cannot guarantee 100% privacy therefore private parts need to be covered.  Topless photos are not permitted at this location.  The farm also requires you to bring and wear a robe between shots.
-Hair and makeup should be done before arriving so as not to cut into the shoot time.  There will not be time to do hair and makeup at the farm.
-Males are not allowed at the farm while the shoot is taking place.  If a male is driving you, he must drop you off and then can come back when the session time is over.  This shoot is available to females 21 and over.  Some exceptions can be made for females between the age of 18-20 if they already graduated from high school.
-Approx 2-3 weeks after the shoot your images will be ready and I'll have you come to my downtown Tacoma location for your ordering session where you'll choose what you want to purchase.  The only way to skip the ordering session is by paying for your digitals or digitals and book online and I'll email you a link where you can download the images once paid.
-Your $99 session fee is Non-Refundable - no exceptions.  It also acts as retainer to hold your date.  We are not able to accommodate reschedules as this location is being privately rented by the day.

Boudoir Closing Sale! https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/3/boudoir-closing-sale
Hello gorgeous ladies!  Sadly the owners of the building we have been leasing have decided to convert the space into something else rather than extending our lease.  At this time we are not planning any shoots past 4/29.  We will still do ordering sessions after that time at a nearby location, but will not be shooting.  We do not know when we will be open for shoots again.  We want to make sure as many ladies get in before we temporarily close.  We also hope that all of you have an opportunity to get photos taken in this amazing space before it's gone for good.  This is your last chance to shoot here, so don't miss out on this deal.  To make it easier on you ladies, we have decided to reduce the session fee for anyone who wants to book a March or April shoot before we close.


Closing Sale:
$99 SESSION FEE!!!


A 45 minute shoot is normally $300 for the session fee (the shoot itself).  That covers the shoot itself and does NOT include digitals, prints or products.  Approximately 2-3 weeks after your shoot you'll come back to the studio choose what you want to purchase.  However, right now we're offering a Closing Sale.  With this special, instead of paying $300 for the session fee, you pay just $99 for the session fee. The session fee needs to be paid within 24 hours of receiving the invoice- NO EXCEPTIONS.  

You can book for any date listed on the calendar.  There are still March and April dates available, but dates are starting to get limited and no new dates will be added.  So if you want to work with me, you need to book ASAP.  I will only be offering this deal to the first 40 people who book.  Over 100 people said they are interested, but only 40 of you will get this opportunity.  Once 40 people book, my calendar will be closed and I will not be booking any longer for this studio.  The next 30 people to book will be the last 30 people who have the opportunity to get their photos taken in this amazing studio that is almost gone.

DO NOT BOOK UNTIL YOU'VE READ ALL THE DETAILS.  ONCE YOU BOOK, YOU WILL OWE THE SESSION FEE ASAP- NO EXCEPTIONS.  That must be paid withing 24 hours of booking.

Tacoma Boudoir PS Photography- 2018 Pricing https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/1/tacoma-boudoir-ps-photography--2018-pricing

THE PHOTO ORDERING PROCESS

Everyone loves their photos and the most common question I get is how much is it to get more than what's in the package.  In fact, there are very few people who stick to their package.  I mean, if you spent time and effort getting stunning photos of yourself, why wouldn't you want more?  So although there is no pressure to get anything beyond your package, I bet that you will love your images and will want more :)

First, I'm going to be upfront, all decisions have to be made at your photo ordering appointment and all sales are final.  I'm not able to set up multiple appointments per person, so you need to be prepared to make all decisions at this appointment.  You must attend this appointment.  You cannot send someone else in place of yourself.  If you send someone else, I will have to send them away and will not be able to show the photos.  Children may not come to this appointment, with the exception of young infants.  If a child between 1 and 17 is brought to the appointment, we will have to reschedule. If you're not able to make it to your ordering appointment, please give me as much notice as possible as I'm probably paying for childcare for that time and may not be able to schedule someone else for that slot.  If you don't show up to your appointment or give me less than 12 hours notice of a reschedule, there will be a $29 rescheduling fee. Unfortunately, anything you don't sign a model release for and do not order will be deleted.  

Some ladies set a budget for themselves and then find they love a lot more images than they expected and they don't want to leave without them.  If you find yourself in this situation, don't worry, I'll work with you :). We can set up a payment plan where you only pay $150 upfront and set up payments over the next 12 weeks on dates that work for you.  There are no fees or interest if paid within 3 months and you'll get everything once the final payment is finished.  Or you can use PayPal credit.  With PayPal credit, if approved you can pay in full on the spot and receive everything upfront.  They will give you 6 month with no interest.  You can apply for PayPal credit at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit

We created beautiful art here, and I don't want to see them deleted either.  So we'll work out a plan together if you need that.

 

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOS

The second most common question I get, is what should you do with these photos.  You have a ton of photos that you love and don't want deleted, but now what do you do with them?  The two things to consider when choosing what to buy are what you plan to do with the images and which images you love.

First, if you want to flaunt your gorgeousness, I recommend getting a 16x20 or bigger print, canvas or metal print to hang in your room.  Some people like to get three 16x20 prints to put above the bed.  For those of you who are concerned about not showing certain types of images in public, there will be modest pictures too :).

For those giving these as a gift, I'd recommend doing an album or Little Black Book.  That way you are handing the person a tangible gift that they can look at whenever they want.  The really nice thing about the books are that they're small and versatile.  If the person wants to display the book on their nightstand, they can leave it out. If you guys want to keep these images between the two of you, the book is nice and small and can easily be tucked away. 

Digitals are our best selling product.  People like to keep these memories.  Although I cannot release the printing rights over the images since I want to maintain the quality, you can do whatever you want with these images in the digital format.  Digitals are such an easy way to preserve these memories.  You can save them to your computer and have access to them whenever you want.  And if you want to show these off on Facebook or other social media, there will be more modest shots that Facebook will approve :).  You look stunning in these photos and why wouldn't you want your friends to at least see a couple of the headshots?  Digitals can be used in so many ways and can be saved and archived, which is why most of our clients choose to get the 15+ digital package.

PRICING AND PRODUCTS

Okay, here's what you've been waiting for- the numbers! :)


These are the digital packages
15+ images= $675
10 images= $575
1 image= $99

(The 15+ package has no limit.  So if I show you 100 images, you can have them all for the same price.  Once you pay for 15, anything beyond that is free) 


Prints:
30x40= $475
20x24= $315
16x20= $205
11x14= $155
8x10 and smaller= $99

If you've purchased at least 5 digital images, then prints are 1/2 price.


Books:
20 page 8x6 Crystal Glance Album $1400
20 page 5x7 Little Black Book $675
20 page 5x7 Slip in Album $675



(Canvas and metal print pricing will be posted shortly.)

 

DON'T LOSE YOUR IMAGES

You look stunning!  Don't lose these images!  Choose your favorites and then decide which option of prints, a book or digitals works best for you.  If you need a payment plan, just let me know and we'll get that set up.  Again, there's no pressure to get anything beyond your package, but almost all of my clients do get more because they love them.  I truly hope you love your images too!!!   

I have a promotion going on right now on our two most popular items.  Most people get the 15+ image disk and the Little Black Book.  If you decide to get the 15+ image disk and the Little Black Book (or slip-in album), you can get them for a total of $875 right now instead of the $1350 they normally are.

End of the Year Boudoir Sale 2017! https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/12/end-of-the-year-boudoir-sale-2017
Hello gorgeous ladies!  I hope you had an amazing and blessed Christmas and that you have a very happy New Year!

End of the Year Boudoir Sale 2017!:
$59 SESSION FEE!!!


A 45 minute shoot is normally $300 for the session fee.  That covers the shoot itself and does not include digitals, prints or products.  Approximately 2-3 weeks after your shoot you'll come back to the studio choose what you want to purchase.  However, right now we're offering our 2017 End of the Year Sale.  This will be the last sale of the year.  With this special, instead of paying $300 for the session fee, you pay just $59 for the session fee. The session fee needs to be paid within 24 hours of receiving the invoice- NO EXCEPTIONS.

You can book for any date listed on the calendar.  There are still January and February dates available, but dates are starting to get limited and no new dates will be added.  So if you want to work with me, you need to book ASAP.  I will only be offering this deal to the first 30 people who book.  Over 70 people said they are interested, but only 30 of you will get this opportunity.  Once 30 people book, my calendar will be closed for January and February and I won't be opening up sprint dates until mid- Feb.  Prices will be increasing for 2018, but in addition to getting the session fee reduced for this deal to just $59, when you come to your ordering appointment to choose what to purchase, you'll get 2017 pricing instead of the increased 2018 pricing.  This is the last opportunity to book a session with the 2017 pricing. 

DO NOT BOOK UNTIL YOU'VE READ ALL THE DETAILS.  ONCE YOU BOOK, YOU WILL OWE THE SESSION FEE ASAP- NO EXCEPTIONS.

-STEP 4: Select CODE (do NOT select session fee or it will try to make you pay the full $300)
-STEP 5: Choose a time listed.  If no times are listed at this step, that means that date is fully booked and you'll have to go back and try a different date.  Most dates will have time availability, but especially any available weekend dates book quickly.
-STEP 6: Fill out your contact info.  To get the End of Year Deal, in the CODE box, type: End of Year 2017
Make sure you type your info, especially your email address, correctly or we may not be able to contact you.  Also make sure you list the CODE End of Year 2017 so you don't get an invoice for the full price.  The online invoice will be emailed to you within 12 hours of you scheduling and you'll have 24 hours to have it paid from the time it is delivered.

If you want to cancel your shoot, please contact us rather than just ignoring us or not showing.  But please don't book unless you're 100% certain you want the shoot and you're ready to pay the session fee.  


DETAILS:
Again, this End of Year Sale is only available for any date currently listed on our calendar.  So if you want to take advantage of it, schedule as soon as possible.  Once I feel at capacity, I will no longer offer this deal, and it is on a first come first serve basis.  I will be taking no more than 30 more sessions.  Especially if you're wanting to get a shoot done for Valentines, I'd recommend getting this deal ASAP as you likely won't have another opportunity to book with me a date before Valentines.

Please do NOT message me through Facebook as I may not get the message.  trina@psphotography-video.com is the best way to reach us and Grace or I will respond to you.  Before messaging with questions about the shoot, be sure to check out the what to expect and how to prepare guide as most questions we get asked are answered in there.

Family Holiday MinI Sessions with PS Photography https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/11/family-holiday-mini-sessions-with-ps-photography FAMILY HOLIDAY MINI SESSIONS WITH PS PHOTOGRAPHY

 

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I cannot wait to work with you!  I'd love to give you some more information on what to expect and how to prepare.


The studio is located in downtown Tacoma at 313 S 7th St, Tacoma, WA 98402.  It's an orange building on 7th between Market and Broadway.  There is a skate shop below us and a pizza place next to us.  You will go up a few steps to get to our door.  If you come on a Sunday, all the parking is free.  Any other day of the week, the 4 spots in front of the studio and pizza place are free, the rest of the block is metered.  However, if you drive up to Market and turn right, there usually is a lot of free street parking, or if you drive down to Broadway and turn left you can find free parking.  Please map the location before heading out as we will be with clients all day and may not have time to help with directions, but if you need to reach us you can email at info@psphotography-video.com or call us at 206-900-1336.

This is a 30 minute session for $99+tax.  An online invoice will be emailed to you within 12 hours of you scheduling.  You will have 24 hours to pay that after it is sent.  Please do NOT book a session unless you are prepared to pay right away.  We will not be holding spots as these sessions are in high demand and will fill right away.  If the session is not paid for within 24 hours of the invoice being sent, the session will be cancelled.

Please arrive a few minutes early to check in.  As I will be shooting back to back, if you are late, I cannot extend your session time, but we will still shoot with whatever time is left in your slot.  

This shoot includes 40 digital images for digital use.  3-4 sets will be used.  Please know that 40 images are only guaranteed if the clients are on time and cooperate.  These will be high resolution images with no watermarks.  An online gallery will be given to each client.  It will remain up for 3 months unless the client asks us to take it down.  You are more than welcome to share this gallery with friends and family.  You will be able to download the images from this gallery straight to your computer.  You will also have the option to purchase prints and products through this gallery.

All final images are up to the discretion of the photographer.  Not every image taken will turn out or make it into the gallery.  Editing is also up to the discretion of the photographer.  If client seeks any additional edits, those may be able to be done for an additional fee.  In the case that the editing is more than the photographer can do, it may be able to be outsourced, but again, that will be for an additional fee.

There are no refunds whatsoever.  Your payment also acts as a retainer to hold your spot.  In the event that you cannot make your shoot, you must give the photographer up to 48 hours notice and you will have the opportunity to choose from another date/time that is still available.  

This session is for immediate family only- so parents and the children in their household.  If you wish to include extended family, there will be an additional $10 fee per person.  When booking, in the notes section, please list the names and ages of all those in your family.  If you wish to include friends or extended family, please note how many people.

If you choose to bring a pet, they must be held or on a leash the whole time.  There are no exceptions.

If you wish to bring props, you may do so.  However, weapons cannot be used as props and cannot be brought in studio.  Thank you for respecting this.


If you have any questions, please email us at info@psphotography-video.com  To schedule, just go to https://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/christmas


Thanks so much and we can't wait to work with you!!! <3

Couples Photos in Seattle and Tacoma with PS Photography & Video https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/8/couples-photos-in-seattle-and-tacoma

COUPLES AND ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS


Hello gorgeous ladies!  I know you've been waiting for all the details on our couples session deal, so here is all the info :)


First I want to talk about who this shoot is for and why it's an amazing thing to do.  This shoot is for any couple.  You can be dating, engaged, newly weds, or a couple who has been married for a long time.  Your marital/relationship status doesn't matter.  So many couples don't get quality photos of themselves until the wedding or engagement.  Then once the wedding is over, the couple often neglects to continue documenting their relationship. If they have children, they might get family photos, but they don't get photos of just the two of them to celebrate their relationship.  

You need to celebrate and document the two of you.  It's so important and really adds to the health and strength of the relationship.  It's not just about having beautiful photos of my husband and me together (but that is an important element), but rather about the experience. The shoot itself is time for us to have fun and bond.  I can close my eyes when he spins me.  We gaze lovingly into each others eyes.  We get to walk holding hands.  Embrace while saying nothing.  We can strongly feel our love while having fun with each other.  Our love is being documented and celebrated.  We get to take that time to just stop all the busyness and stresses of life and just focus one each other.  The experience is amazing, but the images are powerful too.  The images are truly an outward expression of the love you have for each other.  You always have them to look at and feel that emotion and bond between the two of you.  It's also a way to show your love to the world. 


I hope I've sold you on the idea of these sessions, because I truly believe in them.  My husband and I regularly get these shoots done for ourselves.  We find it to be an important part of strengthening our bond.  Now I want to tell you a little bit more about us and why you should use us :)  I'm Trina, and my husband and I both shoot these sessions.  So you'll be working with one of us.  We both have won many awards for our photographic abilities, including being named the #1 wedding photographer and #1 portrait photographer in the King5 Evening Best of Western WA this past year.  We step outside the norms of photography.  We go that extra mile to get amazing lighting and poses.  We will certainly guide and direct you in the posing, but we do it in such a way that many of the photos look more candid because during that pose we're still capturing your natural expressions and emotion.  Jonathan has a degree in film from the USC School of Cinematic Arts and brings that film and cinema background to the shoot.  



DETAILS:

This deal includes a 45 minute session at the designated location and 40 high resolution digital images for digital use. The images will be emailed in a link to a downloadable online gallery approx 2 weeks after the shoot. Prints and products will be available for purchase through the online gallery and you will not need to come back to the studio to view the images or make additional purchases. 

A 45 minute session usually is $300 for the session fee and then for the 15+ digital package that is an additional $600.  This deal is a huge savings and is only being offered on specific dates/locations/times.  These sessions will book quickly, so we recommend booking ASAP.

The shoot is $386+tax, so the total after tax will be $422.67. Half of that is due at scheduling as a retainer. An invoice will be emailed to you and you will have 48 hours to pay online once that invoice has been sent. If that invoice is not paid within 48 hours your appointment will be removed from the calendar and we will send you a message noting that. The other half will be due at least 24 hours before your shoot. An invoice for that second half will be sent approx a week or more before your appointment date. There are no refunds. If you need to reschedule your appointment, we will need at least 72 hours notice and you can choose from one of the other dates on our calendar. If you find a date/time that works for you, we can transfer your retainer.

 

LOCATIONS:
Before booking, be sure to check out the different locations so you can choose the location with the setting that fits best with what you're looking for.  Click these locations to see couples photos that we've taken there.

 We will not be adding any additional dates or times.  This is our final calendar and appointments are on a first come first serve basis.  Once we are at capacity we will pull this deal down.

Reviews for Trina with PS Photography in Tacoma, WA https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/4/boudoir-reviews-for-trina-with-ps-photography-in-tacoma-wa I am honored to have had the opportunity to photograph 100's of ladies in the Greater Seattle area and beyond.  It's been an honor not just to have had the opportunity to do a boudoir or glamour shoot with these ladies, but to have read the beautiful reviews and testimonies they've posted online.  

These ladies also voted us as the #1 Portrait Photographer, #1 Wedding Photographer and #1 Wedding Videographer in the King5 Evening Magazine's Best of Western WA contest.

Boudoir and glamour are a beautiful thing, and what they does for the ladies who get it is more beautiful. We live in a world where society, and even people we love, tear us down left and right. Boudoir is about healing and gaining confidence. It's about seeing beauty that other have tried to steal from you.

If you're thinking of doing a shoot with me, please read these reviews and testimonies below.  If you want to personally talk to ladies who have worked with me and ask them about their experience, please don't hesitate to connect in the private group on Facebook and ask these ladies anything you'd like. This group is not just for me to share my work and specials, but for women to uplift and encourage each other.  You can check out the group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/901310903315468/

 


 

REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS FROM LADIES WHO HAVE WORKED WITH TRINA FOR A BOUDOIR SHOOT:

These are some of the things my clients have said, and these are statements are exactly why I know that being a boudoir photographer is right where I'm supposed to be:

-"I originally thought I was doing this shoot for my husband, as we are newlyweds. Then when I went to look at my pictures I realized that I did this for me! This was for my emotional healing after a 17 years marriage that was filled with infidelity and lies.
Thank you Trina Heppner, for allowing me to see my beauty!"

-" It took a lot of courage for me to be able to do this after i had my son. I felt unatrractive and pretty "blah". Im so glad i did. I feel as though it really brought out my femininity and made me feel attractive again!"

-"Just got done seeing my photos and ladies she is no joke, so beyond talented! Not only did she make me feel sexy and confident during taking the pictures, but she captured beauty that I have a hard time seeing in myself sometimes....thank you so much! "

-"I was so uncomfortable in my own skin and she walked in with such a glow, such strength and empowerment I could feel the confidence throughout the shoot.. Made me feel adequate, good enough, amazing!"

-"I loved the fact that I could feel so beautiful at my age and size. Your professionalism is awesome. Every woman should have the opportunity to feel that great"

-"Lately I haven't liked any photos of myself because I have gained a little extra weight, and being a thick person already. I hate my tummy. Photos other people take of me never look good and selfish do when I can get the right angle lol. I loved that I felt pretty when I looked at my photos and that I liked them. That my size didn't matter."

-"Ladies - You do not have to be a size 0 to do this. I am a size 22 and I had an absolutely amazing experience with Trina Heppner. I was so nervous going in and by the end of it you would have thought this was my 20th time doing it! It is such a confidence builder! If you question your confidence at all then DO THIS for yourself!"

-"I just left my photo ordering appt! I had a wonderful session with Trina a couple of weeks ago and was so excited to see my pictures. I was also terrified! I was scared that they were going to be embarrassing and, well basically "why did you think you could actually pull off boudior pics?" That's what I went in thinking. Well HOLY SMOKES! She is amazing at what she does!!! She REALLY is. I have never felt more beautiful! Everyone needs to experience this amazing feeling. Be brave and let Trina show you how beautiful you really are!"

-"I was so nervous driving to the studio my fiancé tells me everyday that I'm beautiful but after having kids and putting on weight I've been really down on myself. I've been looking into doing boudoir for some time now and finally got up enough courage to do it. Trina Heppner was very welcoming as soon as I walked in the studio her energy and the energy in the studio was very calm and made me instantly feel like I was ready. Plus I took forever on my makeup lol so I had to get some use out of it lol. But with the guidance from Trina I could feel my confidence rising. I honestly have never felt so beautiful in my life. Thank you Trina for helping me feel beautiful again I truly appreciate you and the art you do for us woman💖☺️"

-"As a mother who delivered seven babies I can say I had some hesitation in doing boudoir photos however Trina made me feel so comfortable. She was amazing at letting you know what to expect and positioning you so your best features would shine through. I felt a lot more confident with her coaching me as I went along. I was blown away with how many pictures I fell in love with!! Only wished I had done it at a little later so I could have bought the digitalis."

-"I have followed Trina and her work for a few months. When I had left my husband due to some unfortunate circumstances I felt this overpowering feeling. I scheduled for March and when the day came...I had my makeup and hair done by Amanda and wow!!! I felt like a new person. Trina makes you feel so comfortable. The initial awkwardness was getting changed into your outfit but after that you forget that feeling and instantly I was comfortable. The session lasted 45 mins and she was very patient. Having seen the photos you can't just choose one. Yes it may seem "expensive" but when you think about it it's WORTH it in the end. Thank you sooo much Trina. I will be doing it again soon. 😍"


-"I initially made my appointment with Trina so I could gift photos to my guy. When I was finished I realized I had gifted myself! I felt so confident and gorgeous leaving the studio! I plan to do this again, thank you Trina!"

-"After going through a really long life of self doubt, insecurities and feeling like I just wasn't beautiful, I met Trina and set up a boudior photo shoot. The experience was absolutely unbelievable! Not only was a completely comfortable during the shoot, but she listened to every opinion I had and worked really quickly! She did not ever rush, but she definitely knows how to use ALL of the scheduled time. At my order session, I was so scared and I was telling myself that the pictures were going to be, well, gross. But she opened the first photo, and I couldn't do anything but cry, and thank her. I remember saying "I had no idea that I was that beautiful". 

It has changed my life"

-"I had been following PS Photography with Trina and Jonathan for a while. Not only are they amazing people, but they are amazing photographers! Their pictures are second to none!

My first shoot with them was my engagement shoot. We shot in Wright Park in Tacoma. Trina and Jonathan were both ready and willing to move to all different locations within the park. They advised us on how to pose, but still allowed our silly, loving personalities to show through.

Then, they did our wedding photography and videography. They discreetly captured every moment of that special day. The pictures were something straight out of a fairy tale! Our love was captured so beautifully that I still get tears of happiness when I see our photos and video! 

After seeing the beautiful work from our previous shoots, I just had to do a boudoir shoot with Trina! I arrived on set to a beautiful studio with tons of wardrobe options, and a dressing room that makes you feel like a movie star! Trina has such a calm, professional aura about her that you completely forget you're half naked! We shot 3 different outfits on tons of different sets and backgrounds! The furniture and props Trina has at her studio are timeless! They give your photos a sexy, classic feel. Trina is an absolute expert in posing the female body. She makes sure the poses she puts you in, flatter every inch of your body. I was so in awe of my photos! I kept having to remind myself that it was me I was looking at, and not some magazine model! They were THAT good! I never dreamt I'd look so beautiful. Especially since I'm not happy with my weight at all. But all those insecurities simply fell away when I saw the pictures. The boudoir shoot experience with Trina is something every woman should do! Seriously, it's practically a right of passage, and a huge boost of confidence. And needless to say, my husband LOVED them too! ;)

All of our photo shoots were edited quickly and we received all of our photos in a quick, timely manner. Each shoot consisted of TONS of amazing photos! I'm so grateful to have these memories to keep forever! I will forever choose Trina and Jonathan for all of my photography and videography needs!"

 

-"Trina, I appreciate you so much.

**prepare for my long caption explaining my WHY**

It took me a couple hours to find the courage to share just these couple photos. But I just recieved my pictures back from Trina and I couldn't resist.

Boudoir shoots are so much more than just posing in lingerie or naked for your significant other. I have no SO and I simply did this for myself.

This body has been through two pregnancies back to back.
This body has been through emotional and verbal abuse.
This body has been sexually assaulted.
This body is not the body that I used to have.

But I'm done thinking about what I used to be before I went through everything that I did.

This photoshoot helped me find my confidence and appreciate what I have. I may not be a 00 but I love myself and as silly as it is, this photoshoot is a good part of what made me realize that.

A boudoir shoot is so much more than just posing for your SO. A boudoir shoot is to help remind you of who you are and how beautiful you are."




-"When I first took these pics last summer I was just out of my only ever relationship which was like 13 years long. My ex was not supportive of me doing boudoir because of my weight, and wanted me to wait till after I lost weight to do a session. Our relationship was abruptly ended due to domestic violence, which was really hard on me. I had this session with Trina 4 months later when I was getting to a lot better place. I was a little nervous to try boudoir, but knew it was something I really wanted to do. I think it helped me with my confidence, and helped me on my healing journey. Fast forward to now, and I have an amazing fiance who is such an amazing partner, and we are a really great match for each other, and incredibly happy. We have a baby on the way <3 I am currently 27 weeks pregnant, and looking forward to do a boudoir session again with Trina the end of January. I cant wait for my maternity session, and to celebrate this special time in my life, and for my ever changing body <3 I am so happy to be a part of this group, and be able to share my pics, and a bit of my story "

Wedding Pricing for PS Photography- Greater Seattle, WA https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/1/wedding-pricing-for-ps-photography--greater-seattle-wa



PS Photography & Video Wedding Pricing and Information - Photo, Video and Photobooth


We get tons of inquiries for wedding pricing.  I'd love to give you more info on our pricing, but I'd also like to tell you a little bit more about us and about what you get in our packages.

First off, congratulations!  Planning your wedding is such a huge responsibility, and we understand that.  What if you choose the wrong vendors?  What if the little details don't go the way you planned?  The best way to crush your fears is to hire professionals who you trust.  Trust should be one of the biggest factors when determining who to work with.  Then of course quality and style.

On the topic of quality and style, please only choose to work with us if you love our quality and style.  Photography is an art.  Choose an artist who you love.  Our clients hire us because they can't see working with anyone else.  They love our work and want to see themselves in our images.  If you feel the same, then we want to work with you!  We want to only work with clients who LOVE our work.  The fact that you love our work will help create that bond of trust that you need on your wedding day so that you can relax and enjoy it.  

I understand that in the beginning of the wedding photographer and videographer search that you might be considering a few different professionals.  That's great.  My best piece of advice to you is to put their work side by side and ask yourself whose photo and video you want to see yourself in.  Hopefully you'll only ever have one wedding. Make this day perfect.  You will have these images and video for the rest of your life.  Make sure to get something that you're proud of.  Get photos that you're proud to put on the walls of your home and proud to show off on social media.  Get photos and video that make you laugh and cry and relive all the emotions of your amazing day.  Do not settle.  You can't go back and re-do this, so choose the professional who will get you something that you'll love.  I can't tell you how many brides decided to hire someone else based on price alone and came back to us in tears and told us it was the worst decision they had ever made.  The last bride who contacted us told us she's so embarrassed by her images that she can't find one she can even put on the walls of her home or on social media.  She asked us to edit her images; however, we cannot work on another photographers's images.  So please, please, please, be confident in the choice you made in hiring your photo and video professional because these are the photos and videos you'll have forever, and to pass down to future generations to remember this amazing day by.

Okay, okay, so enough about how to choose the right photographer for you, let's talk about us :)  I'm Trina and my husband is Jonathan.  We're both high end, award winning photographers who are based out of the Greater Seattle area but work worldwide.  Our most recent recognition includes being named as the #1 wedding photographer, #1 wedding videographer and #1 portrait photographer in the King5 Evening Magazine Best of Western WA competition.  It's a great honor to be named #1 out of hundreds of other local wedding photo and video professionals .  I, Trina, photograph weddings, engagements and boudoir, while Jonathan photographs weddings, engagements and seniors.  He also runs our photobooth and does all our wedding videos and films.   We are the proud parents of four beautiful children.  

Let's talk more about video :)  Jonathan's video work is amazing. He's a graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, has worked for a top production company in Hollywood, and now does weddings and engagements full time. Because of his education and background in the film industry, he creates beautiful videos that highlight the wedding in the best way possible and he is very sought after because brides love his style.   Of the many surveys given to brides after their wedding about what they'd change or their biggest regret, most brides say that their biggest regret was not hiring a video professional.  Please do not be one of those brides/grooms left without a quality video that regrets it the rest of your life.

Do you want to make sure your guests have an amazing time at your wedding?  Then get our photobooth!  It's a vintage looking, elegant booth.  We have tons of fun props and when we bring it to weddings, the line never ends.  It's a huge hit, and your guests will tell everyone what an awesome party you threw :) 

Now, what you've been waiting for -- The package details!  All photo packages include high resolution digitals images.  Although many photographers will only give you 200-400 images for a full day, we will give you 500-1,100 depending on how long we're at the wedding. Typically you'll get just over 100 images per each hour that we're there, but the exact number does vary based on the size of the wedding and how many events are going on.

Here are our prices for photo, video and photobooth.  Most people go with our ultimate package, which includes all three services as well as additional services and products.  We want to make sure that if you want to work with us, that you're able to.  We don't want budget to hold you back from working with us, so if budget is an issue we can set up a payment plan where the last payment or two are made after the wedding; however, we are not able to release the photos or video until the final payment is made. We take all forms of payment with the exception of American Express.

These rates will be in effect for 2018 and 2019 weddings that are booked, with a signed contract before June 2019.  After that time, rates will be going up.  These rates are valid for the Greater Seattle area.  We do work worldwide, so if you'd like a quote for travel, we'd be more than happy to give you a quote once we're given the date and location, as well as the service areas you're interested in.

Parents Guide to Senior Photos https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/6/senior-photos-parents-guide As your child grows up you take for granted the hugs you get, and the little drawings that show up on your desk. When they start their senior year in high school you realize they're not going to be there much longer. Whether they're going off to college, getting a job and moving out, joining the military, or getting married, you know they're not going to be around forever, and that can make you feel kind of empty; kind of sad. The one thing you can do is get some photos of them to hang on your wall and remember them.

You need to find a photographer who is going to capture your son or daughter as they are, to really capture their personality. You need to find someone with the experience to get the right expressions, the ones only they do. Someone who can put them in the right poses and in the right lighting, and who provides the kinds of products -- prints, canvases, metal prints, digital images, that you're looking for.

What you need to know about the session

You are more than welcome to accompany your son or daughter. But it is important to know that sometimes its okay to take a step back. If your senior feels like they're crowded or there are too many people watching them or giving direction, they may not be able to loosen up and they might look a little stiff in the photos. We want them to relax and really capture their personality.

After the session we will set up a time to look at the photos and figure out what prints you would like. We will look at wall portraits, gift prints, and digital products.

Guide to Senior Photos https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/6/guide-to-senior-photos Your senior photos should capture who you are. The best of who you are. That's why you want to work with someone who's experienced in setting up the most flattering poses and using the most interesting light, and then offers the prints and products that you want.

There are a couple of differences in how we shoot guys and how we shoot ladies. Please read on.

For the Ladies

Hair and Makeup

We have coordinated with Hair and Makeup artists to offer you professional quality and absolute convenience. Just let us know that you would like to add hair and/or makeup and we will coordinate everything for you.

Posing and Style

We will go over everything with you at the shoot to make sure we use poses that flatter your appearance and that you know what to do and make sure you feel comfortable.

Wardrobe and Props

We encourage you to bring a change of clothes if you want, and anything meaningful that you might want to have photographed with you. A pet, a musical instrument, a sports uniform. We want to see who you are in the photos, and props can really help make that work.

 

 

For the Guys

Some guys are a little more hesitant about getting their photos taken. Some guys think it's more for girls and they just want their yearbook photo and they're done. That's fine. But what if your photographer was a special ops recon photographer with a background in photojournalism who shoots in an editorial style. Does that change things a little? There's nothing wrong with guys getting their photos taken, they just want to do something cool.

What to Wear

We recommend you bring a change of clothes. That way you can have something a little formal, and something a little more casual.

Props

Feel free to bring your dog, your guitar, your car, your football helmet, or anything else that represents who you are.

How to Pose

We will work with you to make sure you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Most people don't have a lot of modeling experience and don't know how to stand. So we will go over everything and make sure you know how to rock your shoot.

The #1 Key to Making Sure you get the Best Wedding Photos https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/5/the-1-key-to-making-sure-you-get-the-best-wedding-photos Not every wedding photographer is for every client.  If I could just give you 1 tip to make sure you get the best wedding photos possible, it would be to tell you to choose the photographer whose photos you like the best.  It’s that simple. 

Your wedding photos will be what you have to remember this important day by.  You’ll have these for the rest of your life.  I always find it funny when someone is willing to spend $2,500+ on a wedding ring and not on wedding photos.  The logic is that the ring is what’s going to last and be with them every day after the wedding, but so are those photos and video.

What will you do with your wedding photos?  Hang them on your wall?  Create an album that you can show to your friends and family who come over?  Have as a background/screensaver on your computer? Hang around your desk at work? Use as your profile photo and cover photo and show off on Facebook? 

You want photos that you’ll be proud to have your guests and family see when they come over.  Get amazing photos that will make your friends jealous!  Okay, you don’t have to make your friends jealous, but get photos that wow them.  Don’t you want something that you’ll be proud of? 

We had a bride decide not to hire us this past year.  She found someone cheaper and closer, so she went with them.  She came back to us in tears and said that her wedding photos were terrible and that her greatest regret was in not hiring us.  She said that she’s too embarrassed to show anyone her wedding photos.  There isn’t one that she feels she can hang on her wall or post to Facebook.  She’s not the first person who has decided not to hire us and later returned to say these same things.

I understand a budget is important.  Many photographers are willing to set up payment plans and/or adjust the package so that you can make it work for you.  We understand the importance of our job, and we want to make sure that every bride gets stunning memories of her day

This is how I recommend you choose your photographer.  I know budget will come into play, but use that as your secondary factor in choosing your photographer and not the primary factor.  Look up lots of photographers, and then place their work side by side.  Ask yourself whose photos you want to see yourself in.  Literally, picture yourself in these images.  Then narrow it down to your top choices.  Look at your budget and set up meetings with your top choices.  If there is a photographer you have to have who is out of your budget, let them know you love their work and want to know if you can set up a payment plan or get a custom package.   They may be willing to work with you.  Not as common, but some will even let you make the last payment after the wedding.  It never hurts to ask.



Please, do NOT be a bride who regrets not getting beautiful images of her wedding.

Should you Give your Wedding Photographer a Shot List? https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/5/should-you-give-your-wedding-photographer-a-shot-list Many sites like the Knot.com tell you that you should provide your photographer with a shot list.  These sample shot lists include things like the kiss and the first dance.  If your photographer needs reminders to get those shots, you should probably fire them and get a new one.

You hire your photographer because you love their style and because you trust them to capture these important moments.  If you give your photographer a shot list with all the basic shots, they’re going to lose their creativity and just take pictures to check them off a list.  I can guarantee you, that is not what you want from your photographer. Chances are that they've shot hundreds of weddings.  They know what to get.  These lists distract your photographer from getting the natural moments and the creative art that you fell in love with when you decided to hire them.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not recommending that you never give the photographer a shot list; however, they don’t need a 2 page list of basic shots.  If you want to give a shot list, have a family shot list for the family formal photography section of the wedding.  As a photographer, I get the basic family groupings and then ask the bride and groom if there are any further family breakdowns they want to get.  That’s just fine for most people.  But if you have a large family, or interesting family dynamics (such as divorced or remarried parents) and want to make sure you don’t miss certain groupings for the family photos, then make a list of each family grouping that is important to you.  Remember that family formal photography time is taking away from the time you and your photographer could be doing other things, so determine how many family groupings are important to you.  If family formals are important and you want to get every small grouping, make sure you set apart enough time for that, and that you have a list prepared so that you get everything you want.  If you just want the main family groupings and a few smaller groupings, a list is typically not necessary.

What about a list of shots from Pinterest?  Sometimes brides will come in with 3+ pages of have to have shots they saw on Pinterest.  Some photographers refuse to look at these shots at all, because they refuse to recreate other people’s work.  As an artist, some consider it insulting.  What I recommend is that you find the shots that you love the most and condense it into no more than 10 poses and ask the photographer if they can capture those shots and that you’re fine if they put their own creative spin on it.  If you have more than 10 have to have shots, again, the photographer will be going from a checklist and losing the creativity that you hired them for.  If you’ve hired a professional whose style and shots you love, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting tons of shots that you love.  You chose your photographer for a reason.  Just relax and trust them.

5 of the First Things to do Once Engaged https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/2/5-of-the-first-things-to-do-once-engaged

Engaged?  Here are 5 Things to do Right Away
 

1)  Have an Engagement Party

People naturally want to congratulate you. An engagement party gives them this opportunity, as well as facilitates your different groups of friends and family getting to know each other.  It’s especially a great time for the bride’s family and the groom’s family to get closer to each other.

 

2) Choose your Venue and Date

The choosing of one’s wedding date and venue go hand in hand. You should choose your venue before your date. What if you find your dream venue, only to find that it’s not available on the date that you’ve given everyone? Have an idea of the dates you’re interested in, but be flexible unless the date has great significance to you.   Need venue ideas in the Greater Seattle Tacoma area?  Check out our Pinterest Board for Western WA Wedding Venues https://www.pinterest.com/seattleweddings/seattle-wa-wedding-venues/

 

3) Choose your Wedding Party

It’s important to choose your party early on since you’ll want their emotional support from the beginning, as well as their presence during the whole planning process.  Traditionally parties have 4 attendants each, but it’s okay to break the rules.  If you want 1 attendant or 10, it’s up to you.  Just keep in mind that the more people in your party, the more people you’ll need to coordinate things with.  Don’t choose your party lightly.  These people will be with you through the whole process and you need people who will encourage you and be there for you even if things get stressful.

 

4) Come up with a Wedding Budget

It’s important to set up a realistic, but flexible budget.  Before setting up your wedding budget, it’s a good idea to find out how much services cost and make a list of your priorities.  For example, if photos are your priority, you might want to spend a little less on food. 

A good way to get an idea of how much you should expect to spend on different services is to enter the zip code of where you hope to have your wedding into the Cost of the Wedding site at http://www.costofwedding.com/  Remember that the cost of a well experienced professional is often much higher than these averages.  

Sometimes what you really want isn’t within your budget.  That doesn’t mean that you have to forego it.  Some vendors will work with you in setting up a payment plan, and some will even accept payments after the wedding date.  Most will not offer this upfront, but if you want something that isn’t in the budget, don’t hesitate to ask your vendors if they have payment plan options or even if they take credit.  Your vendors probably can’t lower their prices because they’re charging what they need to in order to keep their business running and to support their families; however, many of them will work with you to make the process as easy as possible for you.  So do ask if they have payment plan options if your desires are outside of your budget.

 

5) Get your Engagement Photos Done

The engagement photo session is a great way to start your planning process.  It’s a fun experience and it will give you photos to show off to your friends and family.   It’s also an opportunity to learn the poses and to get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding.  It’s also a great opportunity to test working with a photographer before committing to spend thousands on the wedding photography with them.  One way to do this is to book a smaller engagement package and then upgrade to more images once you see them.  You can purchase our engagement deal at https://www.groupon.com/deals/ps-photography-video-4  for just $39 and if you love the images like most of our clients do, then you can upgrade the package.  If you want ideas for how to use your engagement photos, check out our blog post at http://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/4/outdoor-couples-and/or-engagement-photos

Outdoor Engagement and/or Couples Photos - Tacoma and Seattle https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/4/outdoor-couples-and/or-engagement-photos  photo 2013-02-14_0003_zps0000a0b0.jpg
PS Photography offers all different shoot types from weddings, corporate/commercial, high school seniors, glamour and boudoir but one of our very favorite types of shoots are outdoor couples and engagement photos.  If you want to see more of our couples and engagement photos, you can follow us on Pinterest at http://pinterest.com/seattleweddings/couples-and-enagement-photos-by-ps-photography/ and be sure to also check out our main site at http://psphotography-video.com and LIKE us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/WeddingPhotographyandVideo

 

So why would you want a couples shoot?  Many people don't think this type of shoot is important, but they realize the importance later down the road. Those who never get a couples or engagement session often regret it.  It's not about getting your photo taken, but rather about capturing your love and emotion for each other.  That's something that you do want documented and something that you will love and cherish forever.  We don't know what tomorrow holds, so capture these moments when you still have them. 

 

We all have cameras these days, so you probably have tons of snap shots of the two of you together.  These shoots that PS Photography offers are not about a photo of the two of you standing there, but rather about art that captures your emotions for each other.  Your shoot will take place with either Trina or Jonathan, who are both award winning photographers based out of Tacoma, WA.  Both Jonathan and Trina with PS Photography were named the #1 wedding photography, #1 wedding videographer and #1 portrait photographer by the King5 Evening Best of Western WA.  They will be able to create stunning art that you'll be proud to hang on your wall and show off to your friends on social media.


If you're engaged, this shoot type is especially a must have.  An engagement shoot is a fun experience and can give you a break from all of the wedding planning.  It’s an exciting way to have something special for the both of you to keep and remember.

There are also many ways you can use these photos in preparation for your wedding such as:

-use it as a centerpiece for your guests

-use them to create a slideshow to play at the ceremony or reception

-create a guestbook or photo album for guest to view

-use on your wedding website

-décor for the reception

-invitations or Save the Date


Couples Deal:
We have a great deal going on right now on couples and engagement sessions.  These sessions normally have a $300 session fee and then it's an additional $600 to get the 15+ digital package.  So this deal is a huge discount.

What you get:
-45 minute couples or engagement session
-50 high resolution digital images for digital use
-A 6 month online gallery where you can download the images, share the link with friends and family and order prints and products.

Details:
You pay just $189+tax to confirm your appointment.  Then $189+tax is due before your shoot takes place.  If you're paying with credit, you'll need to make your final payment at least 24 hours before your shoot.  An invoice will be e-mailed to you.  We can take any payment type except American Express.  If you prefer to mail a check, send it to 313 S 7th St Tacoma, WA 98402.  Make it out to PS Photography.  If you mail your payment rather than paying your invoice online, be sure to send us an email letting us know you sent it so we know to watch for it.  

-Your invoice must be paid within 24 hours of receiving it.  You should receive the invoice within 48 hours of scheduling.  The total due at the time of booking is $206.96.  Then an additional $206.96 is due before the shoot can take place.

Photobooth https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/3/photobooth It was about a year ago that I decided to build a photobooth. I had talked to some other photographers who had them and they said it was a great experience helping people enjoy their day, and they loved doing it. I started planning it, but it was a pretty big project. I had seen a lot of photobooths that were made out of PVC pipe and bed sheets and I really wanted a high-end photobooth that would stand out. I think it makes a difference in the overall experience if you have an elegant booth instead of a pieced together do-it-yourselfer. So I did a lot of research and I had a friend help me with the woodwork. Sure I could build a case out of 2x4s and plywood, but who would want to go into that thing? What I needed was someone who specializes in finishing work, and I chose the right guy. He did a fantastic job on all the details. I researched the best cameras, printers, and touch panels and had the booth fitted for them. Now, almost a year later, the booth is finally ready to go and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.

If you're interested in booking the photobooth and you live in the Seattle area, please take a look at this page or email us at info@psphotography-video.com.photobooth

Why Boudoir? By Seattle Boudoir Photographer PS Photography https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/3/why-boudoir-seattle-boudoir-photographer-ps-photography

Why Boudoir?
Boudoir photography is quickly becoming popular.  The biggest reason is that these sexy photos make great gifts.  They can be given from a bride to her groom on the wedding day or as a honeymoon gift.  They can be given from a military s/o to her deployed soldier. They can also be give as a birthday or anniversary gift, or just because.

 

What a lot of people don't consider is that these photos also make great gifts for you to give yourself ladies.  Most of my clients come here feeling a little nervous, and insecure about their bodies.  When they leave, they tell me that the shoot was so much fun and an awesome experience.  In fact, many of my clients let me know that they'll be back in a few months to do it again.  When they come back to view the photos, they're always in love with them.  I've had so many of my clients tell me that they've never seen themselves so beautiful.  They thank me for showing them how stunning they really are, and most of them end up getting the whole disk because they don't want to leave these photos behind.  This really is a fun, confidence building experience.  I promise, you'll love it! :)


What Others Say About Boudoir with Trina:

Boudoir shoots make awesome grooms gifts, and I can get a couple more ladies in before Valentines too. If you want to find out more about the experience, watch this short video :) The boudoir studio is located in North Tacoma, but can also be done at our Mountlake Terrace studio.

PS Photography Boudoir FAQ's:  What to Expect at Your Shoot

A few quick FAQs:
-Your photographer will be a female :)
-We highly recommend all of our clients get their hair and makeup professionally done.  If you're looking for recommendations of stylists, we can certainly recommend some.  Check the bottom of this page for some recommendations.  Unless you booked a session that comes with hair and makeup, please come to the studio fully ready so that getting your hair and makeup ready will not take out of your shoot time.

-For a 45 minute session, we recommend 3 outfits.  Since change time does take out of the shoot time, we are generally not able to
accommodate more than 3 outfits (you can bring a 4th just in case we have time).  Although we have clothing options at the studio, it's recommended that you bring your own that you know you love and you know fit.  However, if you want to browse through what we have, you can certainly do that.  What people choose to wear varies greatly. Some people like to wear a cute dress, while others a corset, cute bra set, night gown, jersey, or even topless with just underwear or jeans on.  I don't shoot full nudes, but if you want some topless shots, we can do that. 
-The turn around time is approx. 3 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options for a small fee.
-You can bring a friend to the shoot if you wish, but it will need to be a female. Friends are NOT permitted to take photos with their camera or cell phone.  If I see someone taking photos during the shoot I will ask them to stop and things will probably be awkward from that point on.  If they continue, the shoot will be over and any remaining session time will be forfeited.  If you are bringing a friend to your shoot, it is your responsibility to let them know that other than the hired photographer, photography is NOT permitted in the studio at anytime. 
-Once your photos are done, you'll come in studio and choose the ones you want. All photo ordering sessions happen in studio.  There are no exceptions.  All decisions do have to be made at this appointment.
-Although there is no pressure to get anything beyond your package, all our clients love their photos almost all of them do invest in more.  Most clients spend between $400-$1200 on additional images/products.  You can view the full pricing guide here.
-Any images you get in a digital format are for digital use only.  Any prints you would like do have to be ordered through us.  We take great pride in our work and want you to have beautifully displayed images that have been professionally printed.
-All photos have basic retouching done, and some may have skin softening. If you want advanced editing on more photos, such as skin softening and body contouring, that can be done for $20 per edit, per image.  Certain edits may need to be outsourced and I'll have to provide a custom quote for those.  Most people love the photos with the original edits, and don't see a need for advanced editing, so I recommend you view the photos first, and then decide if you want to add extra editing to your package.
-I will not use your photos in my portfolio without your permission.
-All shoots, photo ordering sessions and print/album pick ups are by appointment only.  Please only show up at the studio if you have an appointment.  To schedule an appointment, go to
http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  
-All scheduling happens online at http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  I recommend scheduling from a computer and not a mobile device as mobile devices sometimes don't finish the booking process. Once you schedule you'll get an auto confirmation in your email.  If you don't get that auto confirmation, message us at trina@psphotography-video.com to verify that you're on the calendar.
-Any dates showing on the calendar that do not show time slots are already fully booked.  If someone cancels for that day, the tim eslot will appear back on the calendar at that time.  I typically don't book more than 5-6 weeks out and cannot take custom date requests at this time.  What's listed on the calendar is my complete availability.
-If you have any questions about your appointment that have not been addressed here, you can messages me at trina@psphotography-video.com Please do NOT message me on Facebook messenger. I do not have it on my phone and will likely not get any messages sent through messenger.  Even if I do get a message and respond to it, please do all future correspondence through my email at trina@psphotograph-video.com   Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your shoot.  If you cancel or wish to reschedule and give me less than 72 hours notice, there is a $29 rescheduling fee.  There are no exceptions as I likely turned people away from that slot and already committed to pay my babysitter for that time.
-If you are more than 20 minutes late, I will assume you are a no show and may leave the studio or start my next session.  If you are going to be more than 20 minutes late, you must email me at trina@psphotograph-video.com and/or text 206-900-1336 letting me know you are still coming and we will shoot with whatever time is still left in your time-slot.  I am unable to go over time as I will likely have another appointment after yours.  If you miss your appointment or show up late, you will not receive a refund.  All retainers/session fees are non-refundable.  So please make sure to map on the address in advance and plan for traffic and other obstacles. 
-Only females will be in studio during your shoot. Often it will only be me (Trina).  Sometimes my administrative assistant, Grace, will be in studio. Very occasionally I may have another female client in another room viewing her images while the shoot is happening.  
-I mostly shoot Monday-Friday.  As a wedding photographer, I have to reserve most of my weekends for weddings, and do not offer boudoir on the weekends.  Most shoots happen during the daytime, but I try to keep some evening options available for those who need that.  You can check my calendar at 
http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  (If I have weekends or evenings available I may add them to the calendar for boudoir, but I cannot promise weekends).  
-The studio is located at 313 S 7th St, Tacoma, WA.  There is metered parking on our street; however, you can typically drive a block or two away and find free street parking.  We are in an orange building.  You'll go up a few steps to get to the studio.  There is a pizza place next to us and a skate shop below us.  We are on 7th, between Market and Broadway.
-To view more of our boudoir work, you can go to http://psphotography-video.com and click the link for the boudoir section.
-If you have anymore questions, you can contact me at trina@psphotography-video.com and Grace (my administrative assistant) or I will get back to you.  You can also reach us at 206-900-1336; however, since we're with clients most of our time, we can't always answer the phone. If you call, be sure to leave your full name, a detailed message and the best way to reach you and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
-Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you!




Hair and Makeup Recommendations
-Most clients love their photos even more if they got their hair and makeup professionally done. I also find those that get their hair and makeup done often feel more confident during the shoot.  Here are some ladies that I have worked with and highly recommend.  If you do decide to go with one of them, make sure you let them know that you're having your shoot with me.  Please note that because I'm often shooting back to back, your hair and makeup time cannot happen at my studio.  You will have to go to your stylists location, have them come to you if they're willing, or meet them somewhere.  Thanks for understanding, and feel free to check out these awesome ladies!

Apply to be in a PS Photography Commercial in the Seattle area https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/2/apply-to-be-in-a-ps-photography-commercial-in-the-seattle-area  photo 2013-02-14_0003_zps0000a0b0.jpg

We're excited to announce that we're planning our first PS Photography wedding and engagement promotional video.  We're looking for a few couples who want to be in our commercial which will be posted on our website and social media networks.  In exchange for your time, we're offering you a free engagement shoot, which normally starts at $300!  If you're interested, we'd love to have you apply.  On March 9th, we'll announce the couples that we have selected to have work with us on this project. 

 

DETAILS:

Who are we looking for?

-You must be an engaged couple.  Please do not apply if you're married, single, or not in the wedding planning process.
-We don't care where you live or where you are getting married, but you must be able to shoot in both Seattle and Mountlake Terrace, WA.
-You must not have already contracted with another wedding photographer.  You can be a PS Photography client or have not yet hired a photographer.  Out of professional courtesy to our fellow professional wedding photographers, we cannot have another photographer's clients in our commercial.  If you've already hired another photographer for your wedding, we're sorry to say that we won't be able to work with you on this commercial project.
-We are looking for a couple who is madly in love with each other and not afraid to show it on camera.
-We are looking for a stylish couple, and although not required, we do recommend that females get their hair and makeup professionally done for this shoot.
-If you win, you must be willing to have your engagement session filmed, as well as come up to our Mountlake Terrace studio and give a video testimony of your experience working with PS Photography.  We will also ask for a written review as well.
-Your accepting this shoot will be considered your agreement to a full model release.


What do you get out of this?

-We will choose two couples to have their engagement shoots filmed for the commercial.  They will get a 1-2 hour shoot at 1-2 locations.  They can bring up to three different outfits as well as props.  They will get the shoot, as well as their 20 favorite images in high resolution with printing and sharing rights and a 16x20 print of their favorite image. They will agree to provide a video and written testimony of their experience working with PS Photography.
-We will choose three additional couples to receive free engagement shoots; however, these shoots will not need to be filmed.  These couples will get a 45 minute engagement session and their favorite 15 images in high resolution on disk with printing and sharing rights.  They can bring up to 2 outfits and as many props as you want.   These three couples agree to come to our Mountlake Terrace studio and give a video testimony of their experience working with PS Photography as well as give a written review. 

 

How to apply:

-We want to know about you!  Send a message to info@psphotography-video.com  The subject of your message must include PS Photography Commercial Application.  You can add your names to the title of the message too so that it's a little easier to sort.
-Tell us about you.  If you have an interesting proposal story or story about how you met or things you've gone through together, we want to hear it.  Tell us a little about your wedding and your wedding style.
-Let us know how long you've been engaged and when you're wedding will be taking place.
-Attach a photo or two of the two of you.
-Let us know what you love about our work and why you would like this opportunity to work with us on this commercial.
-If there's anything else you want us to know about the two of you or your wedding, let us know that too.

 

Who will we choose?

It's not everyday that we give out free shoots, and we are putting a lot into this project, so we're not going to make our decisions lightly.  We want to work with couples who love our work and will be excited to talk about their experience working with us.  We want fun and passionate couples who are in the active process of planning their weddings.  Most importantly, we want to work with couples that we connect and click with.  We will be choosing these couples based on who we feel will best represent our business.  On March 9th, we'll announce the couples that we have selected to have work with us on this project.  We will be contacting these couples through email as well as making the announcement on our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/WeddingPhotographyandVideo

Seattle and Mountlake Terrace Boudoir Photographer https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/2/seattle-and-mountlake-terrace-boudoir-photographer PS Photography Boudoir FAQ's:  What to Expect at Your Shoot

A few quick FAQs:
-Your photographer and editor will be a female.
-We do not provide hair and makeup; however, if you are able, we highly recommend that all our clients get their hair and makeup professionally done.
-You can bring up to three outfits t
o wear.
-The turn around time is approx. 3 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options for a small fee.
-You can bring a friend to the shoot if you wish, but it will need to be a female.
-Once your photos are done, you'll come in studio and choose the ones you want. You may bring a friend or significant other to this appointment. Males may not be present at the shoot, but can come to the photo viewing session.
-There will be more options for additional prints and images. We will go over those prices at your consultation. Prints start at $21 and go up to $95. Digital images, start at $30 and go up to $450. Albums start at $495. We will discuss all those options after your shoot.
-Any images you get on disk are yours. You have full printing and sharing rights over those images. The only thing you cannot do with them is sell them.
-All photos have basic retouching done. If you want advanced editing, such as skin softening and body contouring, that can be done for a small fee. Most people love the photos with the original edits, and don't see a need for advanced editing, so I recommend you view the photos first, and then decide if you want to add extra editing to your package.
-I will not use your photos in my portfolio without your permission, but if you do allow me to use them, I will offer you some discounts on additional images.
-You will receive tons more details and ideas for preparing for your shoot in an auto message once you schedule your shoot at http://psphotography.bookmonline.com/schedules/trina
-To view more of our boudoir work, you can go to http://psphotography-video.com and sign into the guestbook in our boudoir section.
-If you bought a LivingSocial or Groupon, you can schedule at http://psphotography.bookmonline.com/schedules/trina without paying anything additional, just make sure you enter your voucher number when scheduling. If you accepted the Facebook Valentines deal, or would like to purchase a shoot, you can pay directly through the scheduling site.
-If you have anymore questions, you can contact me at trina@psphotography-video.com ; however, I shoot a lot, so my communication is sometimes delayed. It's best if you can schedule and get your confirmation message and see if your questions can be answered in there. If they cannot, then feel free to send me a message. You can also post questions here so that others can see my response.
-Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you!

Seattle Boudoir Photography: Build Self-Confidence https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/2/seattle-boudoir-photography-build-self-confidence Seattle Boudoir Photographer - PS Photography
Boudoir Photos Build Self Confidence


Today I had a post shoot consultation with one of my boudoir clients, and  this consultation was a little different than most.  Although I'm not quite comfortable having males at the shoot, I've recently decided to allow them to come to the photo viewing appointment that takes place a couple of weeks after the shoot, because that way he can help choose the photos he loves of my client.  Today was the first time that a significant other has come to the photo viewing.

While the clients are viewing the photos initially, I go in the other room so they can do that in private.  I could hear them out their giggling a little and talking about how great the photos turned out.  Of course that made me feel good. I love when my clients love the photos.  But what happened next was a lot more significant to me and made me feel so great about my work.  Some people disapprove of shoots like this and only see it as a sexual thing.  There's a lot more to it, and my clients spouse made that clear today.  He was overwhelmed in a good way.  He thanked me for offering this service and told me how great it was.  He said that his wife is a stunning and beautiful woman that he loves dearly, but that she doesn't always see herself as that, and that she's often self-conscience or insecure.  He saw a transformation in her through this shoot.  He said that he saw her seeing her true beauty while going through the photos.  He saw her seeing herself the way he sees her, and that was very meaningful and impactful to him. He couldn't stop thanking me for giving his wife that experience. 

It's things that this that make my job so important.  I'm glad that I can help strengthen relationships and that I can help women see their true beauty and gain self-confidence.  Boudoir photography is a lot more than it may seem to some, and I am so thankful that I am able to do this for others.

Should I do Getting Ready Photos of the Wedding? https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/8/should-i-do-getting-ready-photos-of-the-wedding Don't Regret Not Getting the Getting Ready Photos of your Wedding

Getting ready for your wedding is a big part of your special day.  You won’t have many opportunities like your wedding day and the feelings or anticipation before the ceremony is in high gear.  Getting prepared for your wedding and the feelings of excitement should be captured.  It is an important part of your day that you will most likely want captured to look back on.  Many brides who do not want this part of the day captured often regret it later.  You don’t want to be one of them!

Seattle Pet Photography -- Bowser https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/4/seattle-pet-photography----bowser by Jonathan

Bowser is a unique dog. He's kind of shy and didn't like the camera very much, but we got to know each other and he warmed up to me. I think we got some great shots. I really like his coloring and he has really nice, clear eyes. Not to mention it was a beautiful sunny day after a number of cloudy and rainy Seattle days (I was even getting tired of the rain, and I usually love it). His owners have an old El Camino and we got a couple of shots with that. I love classic cars and I always enjoy photographing them; they make a great background in portraits.

See more of Bowser's pictures here.

Seattle Wedding Photographer Trina: Why My Job is Important https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/3/seattle-wedding-photographer-trina-why-my-job-is-important One day I received a surprise that I was expecting. A pregnancy test had come out positive. It was bad timing, but we were very happy. I loved that baby dearly. I kept a journal and daily wrote to my child. I wrote about the events in our lives. I wrote about my hopes and dreams for that child, and about all my feelings. I bonded with that baby right away. One day I started bleeding and went to the emergency room. They did an ultrasound in which I saw my beautiful baby happily kicking and rolling. The doctor said not to worry that bleeding was normal in pregnancy. I was so relieved. That was such a scary experience. The next day was the worst day of my life. I lost my child that day. I saw my baby covered in blood and not breathing. It was a traumatic experience that I will never completely heal from. In that moment I realized that I had the opportunity to get a photo of my child during the ultrasound, and I didn't even ask for it. It hurt knowing that I could have captured that moment when my child was happily playing, but I didn't. From all of this, I realize that life is finite, and we cannot take any moment for granted. If we have the opportunity to capture an important moment or time of life, we shouldn't let it go. I was already a photographer, but at that point I realized how important my job was.

I have overcome many hardships in my lifetime, but these difficulties have made me strong and a fighter. My passions in life are God, my husband, my children, and photography. Photography is not just the click of a button. It's not an automatic amazing image. Rather photography is the art of telling a story with images. It's a skill of capturing moments and emotions. The end result are photos that make you laugh, cry and love. These are something you will love and cherish for a lifetime. This is what I do and who I am.

Mountlake Terrace https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/3/mountlake-terrace by Jonathan

I took a walk with my kids through the town I grew up in. I just took some snapshots of whatever caught my eye. I used a 300mm lens most of the time to get the shallow depth of field, and get up close to things that are a bit out there. I was using a DX camera (crop sensor) which means the effective zoom was 450mm equivalent. Of course the optical properties are going to be that of a 300mm lens, namely depth of field and compression of space. Longer lenses have more shallow depth of field, blurring out the background. They also compress space, making it look as though things are closer together. Wide angle lenses exaggerate space, making things look farther apart.

I captured images of birds, a local barber shop (the traditional kind, don't see too many of those anymore), and of course, two of my kids. I was really happy with the picture of my kids running to the park. The color saturation in the image was really nice and I liked the composition. Not to mention I got them both on the same step.

EM Fine Art Gallery in Seattle - Savannah and Jordan's Wedding -- by Trina https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/3/em-fine-art-gallery-in-seattle---savannah-and-jordans-wedding----by-trina Savannah and Jordan's big day came!  On March 10th, 2012 they celebrated their love for each other by proclaiming to their friends and family, and committing to each other, that they would spend the rest of their lives together.  If I could describe this wedding in just a few words, it would be real and full of emotion and passion.  You could see the love and passion that these two have for each other, and their bridesmaids and groomsmen had the most personal and hilarious speeches that I've ever heard during the toast. 

Savannah and Jordan were married at the EM Fine Art Gallery in Seattle.  If you're looking for a fun and unique place to get married, this is it.  We also went down to Pike Place Market to get the wedding party photos, which was a very fun expereince, not only because it's a great location to shoot, but also because the bystanders loved seeing this couple and their love for each other.  It really added to the excitement of the day hearing the crowds cheering for them.  The goomsmen would shout out, "clap for love" and the hundreds of bystanders would start screaming and clapping while both they and I snapped away on our cameras.  It was an awesome and fun experience.

Wedding Photography and Videography - Book Early! -- by PS Photography Photographer Trina https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/3/wedding-photography-and-videography---book-early It's a terrible feeling when a bride writes to you and tells you how she has been following your work for a long time and absolutely loves it.  She goes on to tell you her wedding details and tells you she has to have you and isn't considering any other photographer.  You look at your calendar and see that you already booked another wedding on that day.  You try to formulate a message congratulating her and letting her know how much you really wish you could be a part of her wedding, but that someone else booked that date first.  It's a terrible feeling for me to turn down a bride, and especially when I have to turn down those brides who have loved and followed my work for a long time.  It's a really hard thing for me to do.  We've been booking so well that recently I've had to turn tons of these brides down.  So please, if you're set on having us, send us your wedding info and book with us as soon as you book your venue.  That way you can guarantee that we get to work with you. 


To get a quote for your wedding and engagement photography and videography, just send a message to trina@psphotography-video.com  Be sure to let us know your wedding date and location and we'll do our best to get right back to you with a quote. For you busy brides, you can book right online.  For those of you who would rather sit down, discuss details and meet in person, we can set up a meeting in Seattle or Lynnwood.  Thanks so much for loving our work, and we hope to work with you all and provide you amazing images and video that you'll be proud to show off to your friends, pass down to your children, and that you'll love and cherish for a lifetime.

EM Fine Art Gallery Seattle Wedding -- by PS Photography Photographer Trina https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/3/em-fine-art-gallery-seattle-wedding Have you been wanting to see a wedding shot at the EM Fine Art Gallery in Seattle?  Well I have.  In fact, I've been wanting to shoot a wedding there, and now I have my opportunity. 

Today I'll be shooting the Jenkins-Jones wedding there.  I'm charging my batteries, packing my bag, and getting ready to head out in just a few short hours.  This couple has a love and a passion that is obvious to anyone who sees them, and I'm so honored that they chose me as their wedding photographer.  So not only am I excited to be shooting at the EM Fine Art Gallery, but I'm really excited to be shooting this couple's wedding and  I can't wait to share the photos with you.

Seattle Wedding and Engagement Photographer - Upcoming Blog Posts -- by Trina https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/3/seattle-wedding-and-engagement-photographer---upcoming-blog-posts Hello all, and a special welcome to all our brides and grooms!  We're going to get this blog into action!  Besides posting photos of my beautiful brides, and my fun engagement shoots at locations like Pike Place Market and Gasworks Park in Seattle, WA, I'll be posting tons of things about booking your wedding vendors and about planning your wedding.  I've worked with tons of brides, and wedding planners, and have attended hundreds of weddings, and planned my own.  So I do have a lot of great info that hopefully you brides especially will appreciate. 

We'll also occasionally feature wedding products and other local Western WA wedding professionals.  Here are some of the topics that you can expect to see in the near future.  Oh, and please don't hesitate to let us know if there's a particular topic related to photography or wedding planning that you'd like us to cover.

Who is PS Photography & Video? -- by Jonathan https://psphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/3/who-is-ps-photography-video----by-jonathan Here we go with our new blog! We are updating our website and making some changes, so let's introduce some of those. First of all, I'm going to be a lot bigger part of PS Photography & Video now that I've graduated from film school. Trina has really spearheaded this thing for the last couple of years and done some amazing things, especially on Facebook. I've been right beside her all along, of course, but now I have the time to focus more along side her. This means we're going to be doing more portraits and hopefully opening our own studio pretty soon. I've also started doing pet photography if you're interested in that for your pets. I just recently photographed a horse and shot some video that looks like it will turn out pretty well (more on that later). We're going to be integrating more of our video directly onto the site, but for now you can still look at my YouTube channel.

We're both going to be creating blog posts here, and maybe some videos from time to time. We have plans for a pretty awesome video introduction for ourselves, and we'll post that here when we finish it.

Here is a video I made recently for Valentine's Day that I was pretty proud of. It took me some effort to figure out how to link the lights to the music, and of course it takes a lot of time to cut out subjects from the background. But in the end it was well worth it and I'm sure you'll enjoy watching!
