Our portraits reflect you. Whether you want a traditional studio portrait or environmental portrait in your home or at an outdoor location of your choice, we provide you with portraits that last a lifetime. We provide our prices so you don’t feel blindsided.
Any portrait you purchase is guaranteed for workmanship. This means that, with proper care in protecting your portraits, if fading or curling occurs, bring it back and we give you a new one — free.
The following includes our studio policies. This information will help you understand our business better and should answer most of your questions.
We pride ourselves on quick turn-around times. Proofs are usually available within 5 working days of your sitting. Reprints, without special artwork and retouching, take about 10 working days. Please understand these are estimates and depend upon lab and shipping delays.
Reviewing Your Photos
We’re mixing it up a little. To better help you get the images you want, we are primarily getting together with you to show you your images. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions, evaluate your needs, and get your photos ordered. If after that initial review, you need more time, we can post your images to a private website. This site allows you to go through all of the images we reviewed. The location of the gallery is not given to anyone else but you, so you can send it to all the family and friends you like.
Mark Oehler retains all copyrights of the images produced. We reserve the right to use these images in any promotional material without permission. Possible promotions include, but are not limited to, studio displays, studio advertising, trade shows, and photography competitions.
