Info and FAQ - Sorcha Matisse Photography

How do I book a shoot?
Email is the best way to contact me. You can use the form in the "Contact" tab above, or email me directly at

What are your rates?
Weddings start at $2,400, and portraits start at $300/hour. Contact me for more details!

How long will a session take?
That's up to you! Sessions start at one hour, but can go up to four.

What do I get?
You'll get a fully edited gallery of high resolution JPEG photos, with a full copyright release. That means you can make your own prints or albums. 

How would you describe your style?
I want your photos to look bright, clean, and real. My editing style is "natural but elevated." 

What equipment do you use?
My favorite combination is my Canon 1DX and a 50mm Sigma Art lens. I also shoot with a 70-200mm  and a 24-70mm lens.

Do you require a deposit?
I ask for a 25% initial payment at the time of booking. Before a session, I like to meet clients one-on-one to share ideas, discuss location, and take care of paperwork. This is when we can book a session and get a deposit squared away.

How can I pay?
I accept most major debit and credit cards, PayPal, cash, or checks.

What should I bring to my shoot?
This depends on our project. We can talk more about this when we meet to book a session.

Do I need a stylist for hair/makeup/clothes?
There's no right or wrong answer here, but these can all add value to your shoot, and may help you feel more confident.

How and when will I receive my photos?
Portrait retouching typically takes 2-3 weeks, and ALL of your photos will come retouched. Weddings take a bit longer, usually 4-6 weeks. I can deliver digitally (email, Google Drive, DropBox, etc) or physically (CD, DVD, flash drive). Want both? No problem!

What products do you offer?
I sell a variety of professional prints on fine art photo paper, wrapped canvas, and metal. I can also create photo books, cards, and invitations.

I lost my photos! Do you keep backups?
Absolutely! I keep digital copies of your photos for TWO YEARS after your shoot. Just contact me and I will get those back to you.
