Business Philosophy

At ShutterSmith Photography, we believe that the customer is king.  We know, this is easy to say, and many do, but you deserve to be heard and helped in your photography session.  Every client is different and we will always do our best to make sure that your needs and expectations are met.

We start the process by having an individual consultation with you.  Here we will determine the best way to approach your photo shoot.  We will offer packages, but they are just places to start, we can add or subtract from them as appropriate.

We believe that once you pay for our time to take the photos, that you should make some prints of these photos so that you can enjoy them on your wall or on the night stand next to your bed.  So, most of our packages include credits for printing.  We will color correct and crop all of your pictures.

All of your pictures will be loaded onto our website that lets you download the pictures of sufficient resolution to work for on-line social media and prints up to 5” x 7”.  For prints larger than 5″ x 7″, we highly recommend that you contact us, so that the full resolution can be obtained from the RAW file and fine tuning.  The exposure will also be set for the way our lab prints the photo for the very best results.  This fine tuning usually won’t incur an additional labor charge, but it does, it will be worthwhile.  Our prices for photo retouching and printing are very reasonable along with an almost unlimited number of products that we offer.
