Frequently Asked Questions

Where are your favorite locations to shoot in Miami?

Because of its natural beauty, its beaches, and architecture, Miami is called the Magic City. Photographers from around the world come to shoot catalogs, music videos, TV series, and movies here.

I love shooting on location and using the various fabulous Miami locations that include Ocean Drive, South Beach, Haulover Beach, Lincoln Road, and Brickell. Miami's modern boutique hotels also provide a perfect setting for an indoor glamour shoot.

How much do you charge per look?

My packages are by the photoshoot time package and not be the number of looks.

2-hour - Emerald Package

4-hour - Ruby Package

8-hour - Diamond Platinum Package

Time starts when I take the first photo of you. - Initial Hair & Make-up and Setup time do not count towards your package time.

How many looks do you shoot per package?

Usually, I shoot 1-2 looks per hour, and I focus on capturing amazing images from each particular look before moving on to another look.

How many edited photos do I get?

Each package has a set number of included edited images. See the Miami Packages Details Here.

I have never had a professional shoot or it's been a long time. Will you help me with the poses?

Absolutely, this is what being a dedicated professional photographer is all about. I take my time finding your best angles and adjusting the light so that you look as glamorous and sexy as possible. Please subscribe to Paul's Pre-PhotoShoot Blog to receive free tips on posing and everything you need to be ready for your next shoot.

What happens if I need extra time after my package time is up?

Extra time is charged at $200 per hour but does not increase the number of edited photos from your original package.

Do I get all the unedited photos?

No, because I do not send you the bad photos that came out with your eyes closed or photos that are obviously out-takes. I will send you only the good unedited photos via download link for you to save to your computer after you have received your edited photos included in your package. These are the images that once edited will look wonderful. Please view the Miami Packages Page to have the details on your package.

Can I get the unedited photos in High Resolution?

No, I only provide high resolution files of edited images.  Part of my photography is in the editing, and the final results of my images are not complete until they are edited.  In order to keep a consistent quality output of my photography, I only provide edited images in high resolution.

How long after a shoot do I get the edited images?

Edited images included in your package are delivered via email 10-15 business days after your shoot.

I only need 30 min or just a few edited photos. Can you give me a mini session?

Even with experienced models, it takes at least 1 hour for them to fully relax and warm up into elegant, sexy poses. Although I am a fast shooter, I do take my time to properly pose and adjust the details in my clients' pose so that the final results are exquisite and glamorous. To achieve the results you see here on my site you need to plan out your shoot with the proper outfits, locations, details, and the minimum is a 2-hour shoot.

What if I need my edited photos right away?

You can upgrade to VIP Express Editing and receive the edited photos 3 business days after your shoot for an additional $125 fee.

How long does it take you to edit each photo?

After I review all the images from the shoot, I make my selections on which images would look the best when they are edited based on what my client wants to communicate with the photos. I make the selections based on the entire image being as elegant, sexy and glamorous as possible. Each photo takes from 1-2 hours to edit per photo.

Do you have any specials going on?

Please sign up for my newsletter with pre-photoshoot tips on posing, makeup, styling and everything you need to be ready for your next photo-shoot and to receive my specials.

Do I have to have professional make-up for the photo-shoot?

When you do not have professional makeup, your face will look very flat and dull. The cosmetic products my professional makeup artist use is made for the studio lights and for HD video.  My photography is about beauty and quality and using the proper makeup to complete your look is one of my key details in my photography.  Clients that value finer things in life will notice when a woman has invested in her appearance. Also, in order for me to edit your face properly, you needprofessional makeup.

To complete your investment in my photo shoot and receive my full quality results, yes, you do need professional makeup.

Since Professional Hair and MakeUp is one of the key details needed to achieve amazing results, each of my packages now includes Hair and Make-up.

Do you have a make-up artist you recommend? 

Absolutely, I have a team of several professional highly experienced makeup and hair artist that I have been working with for many years. All of them are excellent and always produce fantastic makeup on all types of skin tones.

I am an African-American, and I have had bad experiences with makeup artists. Does your make-up artist have experience with dark skin?

Yes! I used to shoot for Urban Magazines and the make-up artist team that I used are all highly skilled professionals.  Their work is what you see on my photos on my site.

Do you have a studio? Where do you shoot your  Glamour Shoots ?

In general I do not shoot Glamour Shoots in my studio which is only used for commercial photography with solid backgrounds. Glamour photos are better in a hotel, mansion, or private location where the decor of the location will complement the theme of your shoot.  I love to shoot on location and this way I can offer a larger variety of settings for my clients.  If you are not from Miami, you can stay at one of the recommended hotels that are great for photoshoots.

Which hotels do you recommend for me to stay while in Miami?

I have a list of hotels that I highly recommend for photoshoot because they look great in photos and because I have permission from the hotel manager to shoot on the property.  Click here to see the list of recommended Miami Hotels for photoshoots.

What if I am not staying in a hotel in Miami?

Frequently I have access to beautiful locations and hold a photoshoot event.  Please subscribe to my blog to receive my and notifications, tips, and updates.
