Groupon Frequently Asked Questions for Koren Reyes Photography


FAQ's by Koren Reyes
What if I didn't schedule before the expiration date but I still want to get a great deal?

I don't want you to lose the opportunity to get some beautiful boudoir photos at a great introductory price.
Extend your Groupon
Soooooo.....

You may book an appointment up until August 2012 as long as you make the $256 extension fee payment within 24 hours of booking. (Please note that your deal is still 50% off the regular price.)

You may book your session as usual on the calendar page, but please make the payment within 24 hours or I'll have to open your slot to another anxious Grouponer.

To make a direct payment (avoiding PayPal), please call me with a credit card (Visa, MC or American Express).

You'll still get the two retouched 5x7 prints and a low-resolution, watermarked CD and the 45-minute on-camera session with a one-hour review session immediately after the shoot.

How does it all work?

I'm thrilled that you're here! Thank you so much for your interest in my work. I am Koren Reyes of Koren Reyes Photography. I run a New York City photography studio that specializes in women's portraits.

Plan to be at the photo studio for about two hours. Please arrive ON TIME as early arrivals can NOT be admitted. If you're late, we'll do the best we can to fit it all in.

On-camera time lasts 45 minutes. Immediately after your shoot, the photographer will transfer your images to a viewing computer and the two of you will spend the next 45 minutes or so sorting your images.

I ask that you make your selects and place all orders during that review session. I know you'll be super excited about your shoot so it should be easy to make your selects right then and there. Just in case you fall in love with every single picture, please bring cash or a credit card to pay for additional prints beyond the two that are included in your Groupon purchase.

If you can't decide what to do with your images on your shoot date, please note that you'll lose the specially priced Groupon discounts and all prices go back to normal the second you leave the studio.

After you've made your decisions, you'll walk out with your low-resolution CD ready to share your amazing experience with that special someone, friends and family.

What if I have to change or cancel my appointment?
I understand that life happens, so we'll work to make the best of whatever comes our way.

If you need to cancel or change your session, please let me know more than 24 hours before your scheduled shoot time to avoid a penalty. You may:
1) Call me at call  me, or
2) Email me

But what if I'm not a size 2?
Not to worry! Size simply doesn't matter. I have photographed women of all sizes, ages and shapes. They're all beautiful. Everyone has great angles. I've got a few tricks up my sleeve after all these years of experience, so I'll take care of posing every part of you.

Of course you're welcome to create your own poses, but most of my clients walk in not having a clue what to do. Not to worry. I know you'll be a tiny bit nervous at the start of your shoot, but I will direct you so specifically that you won't have to think! You'll just have to listen - and then enjoy the results. It really works - I promise!

It's really easy. And it's really fun!
What if I buy this as a gift for someone?
This is a wonderful thing to give a woman you care about. If you want to tell your special someone that you're willing to add an album, just let me know and we'll work out payment between us.
What do I get with my Groupon session?
You get a 45-minute photo session and two complimentary, retouched 5x7 prints.
Where does the shoot take place?
Shoots with all-female staff take place at one of two Manhattan studio locations:
1) Columbus Circle, and
2) Murray Hill
Can I use this shoot for a pregnancy or headshot session?
Unfortunately, this is just for women and just for boudoir. If you'd like to work with me for another type of photography, please visit www.korenreyes.com to learn more.

If you're pregnant and you're thinking about a portrait session, I have a separate website dedicated to maternity photography.

If you walk in visibly pregnant, you will have two options:
1) Pay an additional $425 for the Mini Tuesday
    equivalent session, or
2) Forfeit your Groupon

This may sound harsh, but I specialize in pregnancy photography. This special promotion was designed to introduce women who are likely to get pregnant in the next three to five years to my studio at a no-risk price.
How do I make an appointment?
You can make an appointment by visiting the online appointment calendar.

Please note - if your primary date and time choice is not available, sign up for the waiting list!
What about makeup?
Please arrive camera-ready. Of course you're welcome to do a little touch-up, but you only have 45 minutes in the camera room. Once time is up, shooting ends.

If you need salon ideas, I recommend *:
For the Columbus Circle location:
1) Salon Ziba, 200 W 57th Street between 7th & 8th Aves
     (212) 767-0577 - Ask for Melece, or the makeup artist
2) The Mac Store at 148 Columbus Avenue New York, NY 10023
    (212) 769-0725
3) Sephora in the Time Warner Building at Columbus Circle

For the Murray Hill location:
1) The Mac Store at the corner of 14th Street and 4th Avenue.
    (212) 466-4789
2) Sephora at 45 E 17th Street. (212) 995-8833

*You'll need to make an advance appointment

What about clothing and props?
The photographer does not provide any clothing or props, so please bring all the looks you'd like to work with. This could be lingerie (I recommend black, red and white), corsets, ripped jeans, high-heeled shoes, your partner's favorite shirt, boas, pearls, etc.

The garment district has great costume jewelry for just a few dollars. You can find pearls, rhinestones, gems, tiaras, etc.
How many looks will I get?
You can bring as many as you like and change as many times as you'd like. Since our shoot time is limited to 45 minutes, I recommend four looks. Sometimes layered outfits can create a lot more looks as the layers come off. Bring a lot of options!
Can I bring someone with me?
No, I'm sorry to say that the studio only accommodates one person at a time. I know it might seem like a romantic thing to bring your partner, but partners are distracting! And they make you nervous! Plus, they get in the way... I carefully created our all-female environment so that you'll feel safe, secure and very private.
Who owns the copyright to my images?
The photographer retains the copyright to all the images she creates. That said, you will go home with a low-resolution CD loaded with images that are perfect for sharing on Facebook, your website, Twitter, etc.

Please note that your CD images are not suitable for printing and are lightly watermarked with the photographer's name.
How many images will I get?
Expect between 30 and 40 captures.
Are all the CD images retouched?
No, only the images you choose for printing will be retouched.
What if there's a processing mistake?
If there's been any kind of mix-up in processing, please return the print(s) in question in order to get a replacement.
What if I don't like any of my photos?
In all my years of experience, I know it is highly unlikely that you won't love at least two of your photos. That said, there is a tiny possibility that this will happen.

If you don't like any of your images and would like to shoot more that day, we will swap the proofing session for time to take more shots. You will go home with the CD to review on your own and I will extend the Groupon-only pricing discounts for you for three days.

If you still can't find any shots you like, I'm sorry to say that I can't offer any other remedies.
Can I purchase my digital files?
Yes! But they're not retouched, so just be aware!

Once you reach a minimum investment of $695, you will be able to purchase up to three high-resolution digital negatives for $155 each.

If you spend between $696 and $1,425, you can purchase up to six high-resolution digital negatives for $115 each.

If you spend $1,426 or more, you purchase as many high resolution digital negatives as you'd like for $75
How long will you keep my files?
Due to the sheer volume, I'm sure you'll understand that I can't store all of your images. Of course I'll archive the ones you order, but I will purge all the images you did NOT order every Friday.
These images are really private. Can I restrict how they will be used?
Definitely. By default, the photographer is entitled to use the images she creates for her own self-promotion. If you want to restrict usage, just let her know and she'll mark your image set appropriately.
What is the turn-around time?
If you only order the two 5x7 prints included in your package (we hope you fall in love with every carefully crafted image!), you'll receive your prints in about two weeks. If you need something in a hurry, just let us know and we'll bend over backward to accommodate you. There is a rush fee of $45, however.

Little Black Books take about two weeks while Custom Albums take between six and eight weeks.
How much do extra prints cost and what else could I get?
I'm offering huge discounts on the day of your shoot! Most products are one-third off!
The catch is this: you must place your order on your shoot date. If you can't decide, all future orders go back to regular prices.
