Viewing and Purchasing

The Process

A Viewing and Purchasing appointment will be scheduled following your portrait session. This time has been set aside at our studio exclusively for you to relax and enjoy yourself as you choose your favorite images. You will have the opportunity to view your images  and make your final selections. Viewing and Purchasing appointments are most successful when adequate preparation has been taken. Please make sure that everyone involved in the decision making process can attend or has been consulted, and remember that special portrait package pricing is only valid for orders placed at the time of your Viewing and Purchasing appointment.

If you do not order at your Viewing and Purchasing appointment you may request to order online at a later date; however, please be aware that items purchased online are subject to a 15% price increase and not all items are available to purchase online, such as Portrait Packages and Creative Design products.

Online Previewing

Select images from your session will be available for previewing at our password-protected  client viewing gallery 2 days prior to your appointment. We encourage you to share the preview with friends and family that may want to purchase images. Please note that preview images are in proof format. Touch-up work will be applied during the production process to images you decide to purchase. A select few images will be shown with additional artwork to give you an idea of the special techniques that can be applied. These techniques can be applied to any of the images you decide to order for $45.

In Studio Previewing

Arrive at your scheduled time with your selection of favorite images and also make note of quantities and any gifts for family members. Your appointment will last about 30 minutes to 1 hour. In the viewing room there is a large wall projector where your images will be displayed. Sessions begin with a slideshow of your proof images. Images are then shown individually and narrowed down to favorite images. Bring anyone with you that will have input about your final order. Portrait Package orders must be placed at your Viewing and Purchasing appointment; portrait sheets ordered after this appointment are subject to a la carte pricing.

All images ordered will be archived for one year; however, images not ordered are subject to purging 90 days after your portrait session date. If the entire image collection is purchased, all files will be archived indefinitely.

Payment

Payment for portrait orders is due in full at the time of ordering. All major forms of credit cards are accepted as well as checks made out to Zontini Studios.


Production

Our graphic designers can add major artwork to any of your selections for $45. Artwork charges are a one-time fee per image and include but are not limited to spot color, swapping heads, removing braces, and a variety of special effects. All minor artwork is complimentary for ordered portraits (removing blemishes and drool, teeth whitening).

Production time is 4-6 weeks; certain boutique items and custom framing may take longer. All other rush orders will be charged 100% of the item cost. When production is complete we will contact you to coordinate a convenient pick-up time.
