Portrait Photography Pricing

How much cost portrait photography? Find the answer and details below.

Are you committed to creating beautiful artwork? So are we. Let’s meet at your portrait session and choose the best frame for our creation together. Our price starts from $550 per hour of portrait photography.

Do you want to feel relaxed during your session and excited after it? So do we.

Good photography takes time and it would be a shame to lose or delete your digital files. For that reason, we are offering you a choice of custom-made print products to order after your portrait session.

Pay only for what you need

Everybody has different needs. Our portrait pricing is structured in a way that allows you to find the right solution for you.

You choose the number of hours you need us for. You choose if you need your images only in form of digital files or if you want to print them.

Not everybody wants to print their portrait photos - we understand - but if you do, we can promise you the best printing solution we have been able to find.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM 20/11/2022 - 20/01/2023.
Thank you very much for considering us to be your photographers. We are looking forward to hearing about your wedding & event plans before or after the above dates.

    Last Minute Bookings

    Do you need a portrait photographer last minute? It happens, we understand it.

    Your date may change due to personal reasons. Photographers can cancel for various reasons such as getting ill, family commitments, personal reasons, duplicate bookings due to poor client management or unfortunately, some photographers may cancel on smaller bookings to accept a larger booking for your portrait session date. We appreciate how stressful it is to be left stranded with nowhere to turn when you thought everything was organized.

    You can always try your luck with us and give us a call. We obviously can't guarantee we will be available however if we are, all we need is 24 hours notice and time to discuss the details of your portrait session so that we do not shoot blindly, payment in full and a signed booking form.

    When you choose Salava Photography you choose Jan & Rochelle to be your photographers.

    We take pride in the photography we do and for that reason, we never send anybody else to take pictures on our behalf.

    There are companies, which will send to you their contract workers to take pictures on behalf of that company, but that's not us. We always work together and we will always be the ones you will see taking pictures at your portrait session.
    The final selection of the images from your portrait session is our responsibility. We aim to show you the best out of your portrait session therefore not every image taken can be selected.

    No photographer in the world can take a perfect photo every time he presses the camera trigger. We all make mistakes, we all shake, and we all are testing if a certain idea will work or not. People are blinking their eyes and all subjects in our environment can act unpredictably and ruin our photo idea.

    For all those reasons we do the final selection to make sure that all selected images are our minimum and above technical and artistic standard. Images that don't meet our standards are not selected. Those are mostly duplicates or near-duplicates, unflattering images, closed eyes images or out of focus images.

    The judgement of photographs is subjective and therefore each person may have a different opinion on the image selection. The final selection will represent us, therefore it is at our discretion to choose those photographs and show you the best out of our work.
    We accept the following payment methods:

    • Online Bank Transfer
    • Direct Debit
    • Paypal
    • Credit Card
    After you pay the deposit for your portrait photography you have 14 days where you can change your mind and ask for your money back with no strings attached.
