FAQ

What is ISPhotographic? ISPhotographic is a team of full time, professional photographers working in Indiana since 1999.

What sets ISPhotographic apart from other photographers? We work full-time from our studio storefront, whereas many in our industry work part-time from home. We have attained a level of experience and expertise that allows us to excel under pressure, to expect the unexpected and maintain a professional, positive presence on assignment. We believe that your time is valuable and place a high priority on making your experience the best one possible. It is our goal to form a mutually beneficial relationship with each client. An exchange of ideas and the formation of a collaboration is ideal. We strive 100% to meet your unique needs. We do not put time limits or limit the number of images delivered with many projects.

What does ISPhotographic specialize in? We specialize in weddings. We started there but unlike many we have never felt the need to “move on”. We serve many commercial clients as well but weddings are how we gauge our success year after year.

What services and products do you provide? We offer event coverage including weddings and other occasions, portrait photography, Baby Plans that document your child’s growth from newborn to year two and beyond and commercial photography services such as editorial and products for print and web. We offer a wide range of products including four lines of wedding albums, canvas prints, framed prints, specialty items such as jewelry, handbags, wallets, phone cases and much more.

Do you travel? We travel. Many locations within the Midwest United States are included at little or no cost. We love taking assignments across the US and overseas. Please contact us for information.

What is your approach to weddings? We start with an exchange of information and ideas. Next is usually the Engagement Session, where the clients and photographer really learn how to work with each other. We provide numerous consultation opportunities to help formulate an efficient, effective timeline for the wedding day. We work quickly on the day of your wedding, allowing you to spend this valuable time with friends and loved ones instead of posing for the camera. Many families are shocked that we can provide high quality portraits in a matter of minutes. We offer as many as three photographers per event to help capture what really matters – the candid moments and the emotions that go with them. Each of our clients then receives a blog post within 48 hours of their wedding, a personalized website of their own, online proofing, a collection of web resolution images to use as they choose and an album design.

What is your approach to portraits? We start with an exchange of information and ideas. Your session can be in our studio, at a nearby location or a location of your choosing such as your home or a favorite park for example. Most sessions last close to one hour, but we can work more quickly if necessary. High School seniors often need more than an hour, so those sessions are normally two hours, with multiple locations and outfits.

What should I bring to my portrait session? Bring your favorite personal items – anything from clothing to pets! You can’t bring too much.

Do you do online proofing? We can provide online proofing for your friends and family who live in other areas.

Do you grant image rights and usage? We focus on creating your heirlooms. We are full time artists, allow us to demonstrate what we can do for you. We know how important social media is and we are generous in allowing our images to be shared in that way. In many cases we grant image rights for an additional fee. Please contact us for information.

Do you require a deposit on services? What are your payment options? Weddings require a deposit of 30% of the package total. We offer flexible payment options and accept the major credit cards.

How far in advance do you book? Popular wedding dates in months like June and October often book a full year in advance. Portraits can often be booked in as little as a week in advance.

What if I live somewhere else but need photography in your area? No problem, we work with this scenario all the time. We can complete projects after they’re photographed with email, Skype, Facectime, and phone calls.

Who are some of your past and current clients? We have worked on numerous occasions with Olympic Gold Medalist David Boudia, Nobel Media and Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry Ei-ichi Negishi, Circle City Planners, Indiana Design Consortium, Purdue Alumnus Magazine and many others. Additionally, we have been assigned to work in many states in the US, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, England and other locales.
