Portrait Details

Standard Portrait Session - $150

Your portrait session will be a great opportunity to capture something special, update a family portrait or get away from the dull school picture. This session can range from a single child shoot to an entire immediate family (parents and children). We can add extended family or customize your portrait session. Contact us for details!

 

Newborn Session - $225 in-studio or $275 on location

This session is unique in that it focuses on your newborn, usually within the first two weeks of birth and still so sleepy and cuddly. The session can take up to two hours with plenty of time provided to feed, change, and calm the baby. Additional family members (parents and siblings) are welcome to join in! The newborn session is available on location or in our home studio in North Phoenix. The session fee includes the session itself, plus your online viewing gallery and 5 edited images with a print release. Newborn sessions can be scheduled months in advance. We will keep your "due date" on the calendar as a place holder and will schedule the actual session after baby arrives.

Bump & Baby - $325

Our Bump and Baby package includes a session before the baby arrives (the bump!) and a session within the first 10 days of baby’s arrival. Each session can include just the subject (Mama and/or baby) or you can include Daddy and sibling(s) if you choose. Our suggestion is to schedule a bump session around your 7th month of pregnancy if possible and we will keep dates open around your due date as to be prepared for your little ones arrival. We suggest newborn photos to be done within the first 10 days, but they can be done anytime within the first month. 

 

First Year - $1025

We will document your baby at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and one year. You’ll receive 10 digital images from each session, one 8x10 print of your choice from each session and a professionally bound 8 x 8 book containing many of your favorite images from the year. Complete the package and add a maternity & newborn session at a discounted rate of $250.

 

Birth Story: We will arrive at the hospital/birthing center when you are in active labor (5-6 cm) and document as much as we can! We will sit down with you for a consultation prior to your due date to discuss your birth plan, comfort level, etc.. We also have options to arrive at the hospital after the birth of your baby to document that special time. Contact us for more information!

We like to tell the story of your wedding through photography. We LOVE capturing every moment, portrait and detail.

Now onto the wedding packages. Our packages start at $1,800. Some considerations that might alter the price of your package include custom prints, canvas art, fine art books, photography time needed, and wedding location (Phoenix, Statewide, Beyond).  Contact us to schedule a consultation and to receive additional information. Each package can be customized to meet your particular needs and wants. 

 


FAQ

What is your style?

We really don't label ourselves with any single style. We want your images to be about the people, the places, and the emotion... not some post-production effect. During your consultation we'll talk more about the flow of your wedding, but for now we'll say this... we believe in good photography. We are trained to get great images, with good light (sometimes good light that we create with our equipment), in the camera. Sure, we like photoshop, but we like to use it to enhance your photographs. We want you to look back at these images in 25 years and still love them and not be distracted by the weird photoshop job that was done to them.


Do you take posed family images?

Yes, we strongly believe that these images are important for you and your family. At our planning meeting, we'll review the list of people and groupings you would like to have included during this time.

Do you travel?

Yes, we travel throughout the state, country, and world. We love to travel and have special packages designed especially for you! We've been dying to check out Brazil if you're looking for wedding location suggestions. wink wink

Do you work with a second shooter?

We work together as a wife and husband team. In the rare instance that one of us is not available, we will hire a qualified second shooter to work with us on your wedding day.

How long does it take to get our products or images?

Online galleries for engagement sessions are usually available within 2 weeks. Online wedding galleries are available in 4-6 weeks. Albums, prints and additional products vary depending on the product.

What is the online gallery?

Your online gallery is a private, password protected area of our website where your images will be available for viewing by you and your guests. It is also a secure shopping cart. If you choose to purchase an album, this is also where you'll select the included images.

How many pictures will we get?

The number of photographs taken depends on a number of variables - hours of coverage, number of guests, type of event, etc.. Our minimum is about 50 per hour, but its usually much higher.

What about the negatives and unedited files?

You will receive the edited, high-resolution digital files and a list of resources where we believe you will get the best consumer products. We do not release raw format files or unedited files. The images selected for use reflect our high standards. These are also what we archive in our studio.

Do you come to the rehearsal?

Not regularly, but we can. Let us know if this is coverage you are interested in.

Do you include engagement sessions?

Yes, and we love them! It's a time for us to get to know you better and for you to get comfortable relaxing in front of our cameras. We try to provide an engagement session to each of our couples 3-6 months before their wedding day. Please note that during our busy wedding seasons (October-November and March-April) engagement sessions availability may be limited on the weekend.

Do you charge taxes?

Yes, we run a business in America, therefore, we do charge taxes. However, our 4 wedding packages include taxes in the package prices. Additional albums, prints and products or customized packages will be subject to state/county and city taxes.

What kind of equipment do you use?

We use top of the line Canon equipment (bodies and lenses), plus many different types of lights and fun photography accessories. Yes, we have a back up for everything!


Can you hold our date?

We can only hold your date once we receive your signed contract and deposit. If we have a consultation with you, we will hold your date for 5 days following the consultation.

What is your payment schedule?

A deposit is due at the time of booking and the remainder is due 30 days prior to your wedding date.

Our wedding is cancelled or our date has been moved?

If your wedding is cancelled, we will return your deposit if we book another wedding on your date. If your wedding date is moved, we will photograph your wedding if we have that new date available. If we are unavailable for your new date, we will return your deposit if we book your originally scheduled date.

Do you offer discounts for off-season or non-Saturday events?

Possibly. Let us know what date you're thinking and we'll get back to you.

Do you require a meal at the reception?

No, but we do appreciate it when one is provided. We try to also ask that we eat at the same time as you to avoid missing anything. Even if a meal is provided, one of us will is shooting while the other is eating.

Do you have any restrictions to family and friends taking photos?

We only ask that they refrain from following us when we are alone with the Bride and Groom. Otherwise, shoot away!

Are you a member of any professional associations for photographers?

Yes! We are active members of WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photography International)
and the Arizona Photographers Association.


About Us

“About Us”: Hi, I’m Johanna. I am a wife, mother, photographer, business owner and lover of baked goods. Together, my husband Andrew and I run A Sophisticated View Photography. We photograph weddings together and occasionally a family or engagement session, but I usually handle the maternity and newborn on my own. We have a beautiful three-year old daughter named Norah, a baby boy named Myles and two dogs who were our “first born” loves. We’ve been married for 7 years and together for 17! Goodness, I can barely handle typing that out. As a family, we spend a lot of our time at the zoo, in the pool and just outdoors in general! We also enjoy cooking, traveling and trying new things. We love to work together and having the opportunity to be creative with one another.

“About Our Business”: Here’s the nitty gritty of the “About Us” and in my opinion the necessary, but not very exciting part. So here it goes… I (Johanna) graduated from NAU in 2005 with my Bachelors of Science in Photography. Andrew graduated in 2004 from the same university with a Dual Bachelors of Science in Finance and Accounting. All of our primary equipment (bodies, lenses, and flash units) are Canon. We’re not big on rivalries, but the Canon brand has treated us well and we are fans! We also use several external flashes, light stands and different types of light/quality of light. We like to experiment and add a little more flavor to our bag(s) every year. Andrew and I both attend the Wedding and Portrait Photography International Convention (affectionately known as WPPI in the industry) every year (since 2009!) and take different classes and learn new techniques or refresh old ones. It’s a great opportunity to see what’s going on in the wedding photography industry throughout the world and network with all the talented photographers out there!
