The Reveal

The Reveal is a separate viewing/ordering appointment conducted either at the studio or via Skype (for our long distance clients) usually 1-2 weeks after your shoot. This is the time we set aside to answer any questions regarding your optional purchase and the best way to utilize your $100 gift voucher. View our current pricing here.
