Do you travel for photo shoots? Of course, fly me anywhere! While Ginny Stephens Photography is based out of northeast Florida, I am available for travel worldwide. All that is required, aside from the wedding package of your choice, is 2 roundtrip airfare tickets (+ baggage fees) and 2 hotel nights. That's it! It's also known as my Passport Package. I absolutely love traveling and have extensive traveling experience. I have photographed professional sessions in New York, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, and beyond. For personal travel, I have photographed in Ireland, Paris, Iceland, and more. Contact me if you are interested in a destination session and we can discuss further details.

What style of photography do you specialize in? I specialize in weddings and high school senior portraits. Since it is difficult to narrow my artistic style down to one specific thing, I would consider my style as something you will want to hang on your wall. Whether it is shooting outdoors or indoors, I strive to create bright, vibrant, unique, and visually pleasing images while still making it obvious that you should be the center of attention.
Are all of your wedding photos from legitimate weddings? Every image you see under the "Weddings" gallery is from an actual wedding that took place. None of the photos are of a paid model, from collaboration shoots, or for reasons other than a wedding day.
I want you as my photographer, how do I book a session? First of all, yay! I can't wait to work with you. Please look over the "Investment" tab and then contact me via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or via text, 904-866-6852, with the following information:
Brides & Grooms - in your message, please include your wedding date and any basic information you feel I should know. After I confirm, you will be emailed a contract/booking fee that needs to be completed in order for your date to be officially booked.
Seniors - in your message, please include a month or two that you would prefer your session to be in and we will then discuss my available dates and any details.
Do you retouch the photos, or does someone else? Yes, each image you receive has been hand-editing by me, one at a time. I do not batch in bulk groups or mass-produce the results with pre-paid filters. Every photo you see has been carefully observed and edited individually. I also retouch the photos my second photographer takes at weddings.
How many photos will I receive? The hours of coverage vary depending on which wedding package you choose. With more hours, obviously you will have more photos, but there is never a limit to how many photos you will receive or how many I will take. You will receive hundreds of images when you choose the Gold, Diamond, Platinum, or Passport package.
When will the photos be finished? I am proud of the fact that I edit/deliver proofs very quickly. For senior sessions, my goal is to deliver proofs on a private link within 2-3 weeks. For weddings, I aim to send the images on a private link within 1 month of the wedding date. Many sessions have been delivered within a week or 2 for both seniors and weddings.
What happens if it rains during my session? For seniors, we will shoot as long as possible and then reschedule the remaining time of your 2 hour session. For weddings, we will shoot as long as possible outdoors and then move indoors to finish photographing. Indoor lighting is no issue for me, so we will still get bright, happy photos!
Will highlights or preview photos be posted after the session on social media? Definitely! I am just as excited for people to see your images as you are, so I make sure to post highlights on Facebook and Instagram the very next day, if not the day of the session. You might also see your photos on my website galleries!
What about sales tax? It is included already with your price... no hidden fees. This saves you an additional 7%, which is rare anywhere else.
Do you have business insurance? Absolutely yes.
I'm getting married at _______________ , will there be a charge for travel? Depending on the mileage from the zip code 32043 or how many minutes it takes me and my second photographer to travel to your wedding venue, there might be small additional charge. Contact me if you are unsure or have questions.
Do you offer prints? Yes, high quality prints are available for purchase. I also give a print release with every session in case you prefer your digital images printed elsewhere. Wedding albums are also available for $400.
How are you with photographing children? I love kids and have experience working with them outside of photography. Handling little ones at a wedding is no issue, especially if a parent is nearby.
Are the raw, unedited photos available for viewing or purchase? Unfortunately, no they are not. The images selected for editing and final delivery reflect my high standards. Images not included are either exact duplicates or true outtakes, so you're not missing out on anything!
