“The F.A.Q. page”
We get asked the following a lot posted in the order of how many times we are asked the same question.
Q. Is the $100.00 booking fee refundable?
A. No. It is a booking fee that is a part of your session. The $100.00 covers the time of your session should you not show up. It also covers the cost of driving to your session location. If you do not show up or cancel your session, we charge your account $100.00 for loss of business thus non refundable.
Q. Does the $100.00 come off the total of the session?
A. Yes. (example) Book any session (other than a wedding). You would on pay $100.00 upfront for us to hold your date and time. Then the day of the session, you would only pay the remaining amount due less $100.00.
Q. What are your rates for family sessions?
A. 15 minutes $175.00 – 30 minutes $350.00 – 45 minutes $525.00 – 60 minutes $700.00.
See our rate page for more info on this.
Q. What are your rates for wedding sessions?
A.See our rate page for more info on this.
(Question) How do you come up with pricing?
(Question) When does it change?
We book our session pricing at the time you book, not when the session is. The sooner you book the less costly it is (normally) This month the rates are lower than the regular rates.
We dig through 15+ photography companies in the area starting on the first of the year and monitor our markets to make sure our rates are not only competitive but fair as possible.
We know it takes a LOT of money to vacation in Panama City Beach. We are here to help you remember the best vacation ever with the ones you love most so we make sure not to overcharge you.
Please take the time to see https://SpedaleJr.com for more info on our pricing and packages. (PLEASE NOTE) If you book next month, the rates could be higher or lower but you risk losing your time/date for the golden hour, aka the “best time EVER”.
(When should I book?)
So, book a week in a condo here in #PanamaCityBeach. Then as soon as you’ve secured a room, message us so we can see what’s left to book. Try to request with us to book a session within one hour till sunset or sunset itself for the best look.
We hope this has helped..
Q. What happens if it rains and I may want to cancel?
A. See “cancellation-policy” We can shoot in light rain, no major thunderstorms for safety reasons. We will reschedule for any other time. We do not refund deposits because of any weather, it’s an act of god (out of our hands). We will take the $100.00 booking fee total off your next session should you want to reschedule.
Q. Will you shoot in the rain?

Q. What does “Basic” editing cover?
A. “Basic editing covers the over all look we give to all customers. #1 Color correction. #2 flatten the horizon, #3 crop the photo to a perfect look, and last, #4 give it our signature look you see all over Facebook and SpedaleJr.com to provide you with our best look. Also we don’t advertise this to anyone, it’s only on our F.A.Q page. We delete anyone out of the background if they are in the water.”
Q. What are “full edits”

A.YES, editing would start as low as $35.00 up to $150.00 per photo to edit. Your best bet is to have hair ties or hair clips. Hair up is better than poofy hair any day. PRO TIP! Bring a small bottle of water to help hair lie flat.
