Viewing and Purchasing Your Portraits
A single projection preview session will be scheduled in our studio on Wynn Road about a week after your photography for viewing your selections. Your purchasing decision will be made at that appointment, so be sure to bring your family and any other decision makers. Mark will guide you to the appropriate design and framing to complement your art piece. Fees will be assessed for additional preview sessions and orders placed thereafter. Prices are subject to change at any time.
Your portrait session is $200, which includes the photographer’s time, talent, travel within Whatcom County, and materials. You can invest as much or as little as you would like in prints, from wall portraits sized to complement your home’s decor down to desktop-size prints. Wall portraits are a lifetime investment in your family’s memories, an important focal point in your home. All portraits are à la carte and prices depend upon size and finish. Most families end up investing between $1000 and $1500 in their portraits.
Our portraits include basic retouching to minimize blemishes and correct many eyeglass reflections. We take a subtle approach to retouching so it isn’t obvious that anything has been done. If there is something in particular you’d like retouched, please tell us when you select your poses during your viewing and purchasing session. Black and white or sepia conversions are available.
Payment and Delivery
Your Session Fee is due at the time your appointment is booked. All orders are paid in full before being released to our lab for printing and finishing. Delivery time may vary depending on the finishing of your photography but in most cases we can have your finished portraits ready in about two weeks from the time you place your order. We accept your Whatcom County check and all major credit cards. If you’d like, we can arrange a payment plan. Just ask.
The Turner Photographics studio is conveniently located at 4682 Wynn Road, just 3/4 mile from the Slater Road I-5 exit between Bellingham and Ferndale. From the freeway, head west on Slater to the first stoplight at Rural Avenue. Turn south on Rural. When Rural makes a hard right continue straight onto Wynn Road. We’re just a short distance up Wynn on the left. Look for two stucco buildings; the studio and our parking area are on the left.
If you’re read this far and haven’t called to set up a get-acquainted chat, ring the office at 360-671-6851. I’d love to answer any questions you may still have. You may also pick a time for your consultation online.
