PRIVATE PHOTO SHOOTS
Hello! My name is Valerie Buller and if you've landed on this page you might be interested in booking a photo session. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you finish reading and still have questions or concerns.
There are so many options before you: portrait style with you and your horse, under saddle, your horse at liberty, senior photos, family photos, holiday photos and more. The key ingredient for all of them is fun!
My style is candid and informal; I'll offer general suggestions about what to do but you won't be put into strange poses and asked to stand in one place. I move around a lot and I like to try different things, and if you have ideas I'd love to hear them.
I work out of doors and use natural light. For this reason I prefer shooting late afternoon or early evening as that is when the light is the most beautiful. For family sessions we'll meet at a local park or wildlife area. In case of inclement weather we will reschedule. Please see cancellation terms below.
Sessions are one hour and are $200 (plus 6% PA sales tax)**. That includes the shoot, editing, an online gallery and ALL the usable images from your shoot sent to you digitally (I don't burn cd's). You can expect at least 50 photos per hour of shooting. Please remember these files are for your personal enjoyment only. Share them with friends and family- that's what they're for! If you want to use the photos for a commercial purpose (website, advertising, etc.) a separate fee must be negotiated.
**All members of the U. S. military and their families will receive a 10% discount for private photo shoots. This applies to active duty, retired, national guard and reserve personnel. Deepest gratitude for your service and sacrifice.
THE BARN MINI SHOOT
Is an hour in front of the camera too long for you and/or your horse? Then get a group of 3 or more people together at your barn and book a mini shoot! It's $100for a half an hour plus tax and everyone splits the travel fee (see below). We can do portrait style, under saddle, at liberty - anything you would like.
Weddings, horse shows etc. are negotiated on a per event basis, please contact me and we can talk about what you have in mind.
$15 per hour. That can be split if I'm shooting multiple people at one location.
Check, cash or paypal accepted
If Mother Nature has planned a blizzard, a hurricane, a steady rain etc. for the day of our shoot there is no cancellation fee. For all other weather patterns: sunny, cloudy and everything in between we have the session. If you cancel within 24 hours of the shoot you will be charged for the session.
contact me if you have questions or if you would like to schedule a shoot!
