Things to consider when planning a group photo

  • Group photos are billed at a minimum of $100. Typical group photos take less than one hour to complete, requests requiring more than an hour will incur additional fees. 

  • If the group is large, you will need to provide a ladder for the photographer.

  • Keep in mind the size of the group when deciding where the photo will be taken. Be sure there will be adequate room for those in the photo as well as for the photographer. 

  • For outdoor group photos, have a nearby backup location in case of bad weather.
