rates, details, and order form

Our retouching services cover things like skin correction, blemish removal, eye brightening, teeth whitening, softening of fine lines, cleaning up fly away hairs, and any clothing fixes that may be necessary. We welcome any and all notes you have, and ask that you include them when you order your retouching (as opposed to after you've received the images back).

• Tandem Images: $18

The fee for retouching additional photos from any session with us is $18 per image. If you order retouching within the first six months of your session with us, you do not need to send any files over. Just double check the file numbers and send us a list and any notes you may have.

If you order retouching after having received the notice that your session will be deleted, please send the highest quality image you have over to us to work with. Your "FR" or "HR" image is preferred. Please zip the images into one file and use a file sharing service like Google Drive, Dropbox, or WeTransfer to send them over to us.

Multi-person Tandem Photo images: +$5 per face.

• Non-Tandem Images: $25+

Due to high demand, we are not offering non-Tandem client retouching at this time. The minimum fee for retouching photos from a non-Tandem session is $25 per image. We rarely charge more for this service, but we ask that you shoot over a screen shot of the images along with all areas of concern and we'll send back an exact quote. If everything looks good to you, you can email over the full quality images and we'll get your order in our queue. Please be sure to email the highest quality images available to you in zip file format via Google Drive, Dropbox, or WeTransfer. Multi-person non-Tandem Photo images: +$5 per face

• Special Effects Editing: Varies

Whether they are photos shot with us or with another photographer, if you require something out of the ordinary like background color changes, hair color adjustments, clothing color adjustments, body reshaping, etc, there may be an additional fee beyond the standard $15/$20. Please email with the details and we'll let you know if it's in our wheelhouse and send you a quote. Multi-person non-Tandem Photo images: $25 starting.

• Turnaround:

We will always work to get your photos back to you in a timely manner, but the turnaround ultimately depends on how many orders we have at any given time.

Current Turnaround: 14 days. We know it's annoying, but due to a very high number of orders, the turnaround is longer than usual and we are not able to do any rush orders at this time. If you need to take your selections elsewhere, please be sure to send your retoucher the high resolution versions that have been made available to you.

If you need to send images, please email them to:

Please note: We don't offer discounts on multi-image orders because we work with each photo individually and don't do any "batch" retouching beyond the color correction that you receive initially (with Tandem images).
