Portrait FAQ

Portrait sessions qualify as a 1 hour engagement, family, senior, maternity, or lifestyle session.  Sorry, but we do not do newborns anymore!

Our session prices are for groups of up to 5 people, including a maximum of 3 children.  Additional people may be added at $20 per person.  Inquire for large groups.

We recommend that you give yourself some time and really think carefully about the outfits you will wear on the day of your session.   After all, these will be pictures that you will look back on 20 years from now and say "whoa" I was young! LOL. Seriously though, think timeless, not trendy. You can use the outfits as an extension of your family's personality, such as using neutrals and flowing fabric to show your family's softer side or bold coordinating colors to show a more fun side.  We recommend staying away from prints or too many different patterns.  Think about where we will be taking pictures, the colors of our surroundings.  Choose a complimenting palette (or contrasting one) and go from there.  Ultimately it's up to you.   Feel free to drop us a line if you need any help with coordination.

IKR?  We actually get asked this question a lot.  Makes us wonder if we are working our clients too hard.  This depends on what time of day it is and where we are on the Island.  I guess you will just have to schedule a session to find out.


Wedding FAQ

Izumoto Photography was officially founded in April 2012.

Through 2015, we have had the priviledge of photographing 200+ weddings.

All of our packages come with two photographers.

We are a husband and wife team, which means that you will be contracted to receive the both of us.  Should one of us be unable to attend, we will make arrangements to provide another photographer to take his/her place.  Please note that this has happened only once and it was due to our daughter's birth.  We will make every effort to be there ourselves.

We always try to take our unique vision and fuse it with the personalities of our clients to create fun, romantic, creative images.  We love and primarily shoot natural light, but will also use speedlights (flash).

We conservatively estimate that you will receive 75 images per hour of actual shooting, this number can vary depending on the events of your day. Traveling or downtime does not apply to actual time shooting.

When your pictures are ready we will email you a gallery ID & password,  from which you may download your high resolution images at no charge.  Your customized DVD will then be shipped to you for free if you live in the United States about a week after your gallery is ready.  Weddings 4+ hours will receive a free upgrade to a crystal flashdrive.

For weddings under 4 hours, your gallery of images will be ready within 1 month.  For weddings 4+ hours, images can be expected in 4-6 weeks.

To reserve your date, we require a signed contract and 20% deposit.

We accept cash and check.  We also accept credit card payment through an online invoice with a 3% processing fee.
