Here at Amanda Manacio Photography, I understand that coming over to get naked with me can be nerve wrecking! I just want to make sure that you are 100% comfortable in choosing me as your photographer, so please don't be afraid to ask me anything. Here are some commonly asked questions from our clients. Have more questions? Please feel free to contact me!
How do I book with you?
To book a session with me, all you have to do shoot me a message to set up your phone consult. We'll go over all the details and questions you have regarding your session, including pricing. Every session is tailored for YOU, so once you feel comfortable and ready to book your experience, I can take your booking fee over the phone or you can pay by invoice. Once you have paid, you're in the calendar, woohoo! I'll send over your Welcome guide, Contract and Prep Guide to get this journey started! Information about the initial investment found here.
How far in advance should I have my session?
I suggest having your session at least 4 weeks before you need your products in hand, so we're not missing any special dates!
Is the booking fee applied to my order?
Nope, the booking fee is separate from your product order. Your booking fee covers all your prep information, hair and makeup, the shoot time with me, access to my client closet, as well as your viewing and ordering appointment. All prints and products are sold separately at your viewing session! Want more info on pricing? Just set up your phone consult here or contact me at (907)957-2029 and leave a message (If I don't answer I WILL get back to you as soon as I possibly can!)
If I do my own hair and makeup is there a discount?
Hair and makeup is a complimentary service, so the booking fee remains the same whether you use it or not BUT I can tell you, you WANT them to do your hair and makeup! Kathy is fabulous and won't disappoint. We always make sure you are 100% satisfied with your look before we start your session, so just come, relax and enjoy yourself while getting pampered!

What is the viewing and ordering appointment?
Your reveal session, or viewing and ordering appointment, takes place 4-7 days after you have your session. You'll come in to view your images for the first time and choose the products that are right for you. We'll go through a slideshow together and then go through them one-by-one to pick your favorites. There are certainly ways to get them all but many do narrow them down into an album or custom collection. Every session is so different and every client is doing this for a different reason so the reveal session is tailored for you and your needs, prices vary.
What is the turn around time to get my products?
Once you pay for your products in full it takes about 7-14 business days to get your products in. So, just be mindful of that when planning your special occasions!!!
Do you sell digitals?
I do offer digital collections! This way you can print anytime you want, whenever you want and as big or small as your heat desires. Prices vary!
What if I start my period before my session?
I know this may seem like an odd question but it is one that not a lot of women think about until it's almost time for their shoot and it's totally fine and a really common concern that my clients have. I do not reschedule for periods. As long as you are comfortable wearing a tampon we are good to go. If you have other concerns regarding your cycle, just let me know and we can certainly work around it!
What if I don't know how to pose, Can you help with that?
Absolutely! I don't expect my clients to know all the poses they are not models. I don't photograph models. I just photograph everyday women like yourself that are wanting this experience for the day! As long as you can follow simple directions, you can do this! The first 5-10 minutes are goin to feel awkward as you get the feel for it but I'm telling you what to do the entire time! Every photo you see was posed and directed by me so don't worry I've got you!!!
What do I wear for my session?
This is a great question! Again, once you book in I will send out a boudoir prep guide to help you get ready for your experience. It's filled with tips and tricks to get ready for your session including Lingerie advice. There are also places to shop locally to find the right style for you. If you have no clue what to do or where to start, I would suggest checking out My Client Closet over on Facebook, Freya Romance Boutique or Bustin' Out Boutique. we all have different taste in Lingerie but I have no doubt you will find what you love and feel the most confidant in locally. I do suggest you bring 1-2 pieces of lingerie with you that you have tried on and LOVE, just in case.
What is your rescheduling/cancellation policy?
You are allowed ONE complimentary rescheduling date. I understand things come up/happen where you need to move your original date.
Do I have to share my images online?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! I never make you do something you're not comfortable with! There are plenty of ladies who have had a session with me and you'll never see one photo. This is a choice that you make after your session is complete. You have 3 choices on how your images are shared, if at all.
Was there a question I didn't cover here, if so you can send me a message and I will gladly answer it for you.
