The experience

02.) your session

Reach out! I promise I won't bite. I typically respond within 24-72 hours. If you don't hear from me within 3 days, reach out again! Once you reach out you will receive information regarding packages, available dates, and location. Once we finalize the details you will receive a contract and invoice. A non-refundable retainer is due within 48 hours to hold your date. 

Now is the fun part! It’s the day of your session. I know you’re probably nervous, don’t be! I promise you will have a blast. We will hang out, shoot, and jam to some fun tunes. After your session I always try to post a few previews either on Instagram or via email so you can get your photo fix! 

03.) Gallery

I know how excited you are to see your photos! I promise a max turn around time of 14-21 days. Your gallery will be delivered online via Pixieset. You will have access to the high-resolution images as well as the web size images. You can easily download your gallery from this link. I believe photos are not meant to live on a screen which is why I offer professional printing services! Just because your gallery is delivered and your session is over, doesn’t mean we have to stop talking! I love chatting with my clients over coffee, brunch or even over a glass of wine;)

"Loved every photo"

Mary was great for our engagement shoot. I am usually very hard on myself in photos but I loved every one that Mary took. My fiancé is also very impatient when it comes to taking photos but she was quick and made it fun. We had to postpone our wedding, but she was very flexible and understanding. We can’t wait for her to shoot our wedding. Our favorite thing about her is she is body positive!

"mary is amazing!"

Mary is amazing. We did a boudoir shoot this summer and I was a little anxious and super excited after seeing her work, and I have to say, she delivered. She is so genuine and supportive. She’s experienced and direct when personalizing your shoot. She’s fun to hang out with and she makes you feel and look amazing in her photos! I’d recommend her to anyone looking to feel great in any body they have!

"Absolute dream"

"Mary was an absolute dream to work with!! She makes you feel so comfortable! And that’s a hard thing to do with boudoir photoshoots!! She’s knowledgeable and affordable and I could not recommend her enough!! If you are looking to do some boudoir shoots (and I highly recommend that you do!) 100/10 go with Mary Castillo Photography!!"
