Portrait Photography Pricing

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

Are you committed to creating beautiful artwork? So as are we. Let’s meet at your portrait session and choose the best frame for our creation together.

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.

Let's start from the basics.

Do you need your portrait images only for social media?

No problem. This is where we start. You will have your portrait session covered for an affordable price. Not everybody wants to print their portrait photos - we understand. If you just want to share images with friends on social media - we have a solution ready for you.

Save money today. Upgrade later - if you decide to print your portrait photos (social media size images are suitable for printing to 6"x4").

Do you want to print your portrait images?

No problem. Upgrade and add all images from your portrait session in their original size. The same size we use for printing.

Pick your favourites

If you don't need all images in their full size, pick only those photos you really want.

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
