Step 1: Consulation

Regardless of the package you select, I will schedule an in-person or phone consultation prior to the session so that the setting and style exceeds your expectations and incorporates any ideas you might have. I don't just want to take photographs for you, I want to take them with you.


The consultation is our mutual opportunity to get to know one another, to plan the upcoming photo shoot and to begin the discussion as to the types of printed products that will best meet your needs and the spaces in which they will be displayed. 


During the consultation, we will also mutually select the location for the upcoming photo shoot. Options include in my studio, at one of several beautiful locations around the St. Louis area, in the comfort of your own home, or at any other location that will match the end results we aim to achieve.    

Step 2: Photo Shoot

On the day of your shoot, no other client session will be scheduled. This grants us maximum flexibility so that sessions aren't ended prematurely. Our sessions don't end when the clock reaches an arbitrary time. They end when we've captured a generous number of amazing images. Clients can bring as many outfits as they like and can rest knowing that time is on their side. Strictly timed sessions and 'mini sessions' don't mix with the type of experience and end product you'll get with Ryan Pendleton Photography. 

Step 3: The Reveal

Approximately 1-3 weeks after the photo session, you will be invited back to Ryan Pendleton Photography for the reveal. During the reveal, you will be shown your finished / retouched images for the first time and guided through the selection and ordering of your printed products. 

Products offered include archival quality mounted prints, framed prints, canvases, metal wall art, albums, folio boxes and more. 

Session Options

Classic sessions include all portrait categories: Adults, Newborns & Maternity, Kids & Families, Personal Branding / Professional Headshots, Senior Pictures, Engagement Sessions and More.

In Classic sessions, the clients are responsible for their own hair and makeup, and can perform as many outfit changes as they like throughout the shoot. 

Vogue sessions are nearly identical to Classic sessions. However, clients opting for a Vogue session will have their hair and makeup professionally done immediately prior to the start of the shoot, with all stylist fees, tips, etc. included as a part of the photography session.

Vogue clients walk into the studio looking, and feeling, like they belong on the cover of the latest fashion magazine. 

Classic Sessions

Vogue Sessions


The Classic session fee, which covers the consultation, photo shoot, editing/retouching and reveal is $200 paid at the time of booking. 

For each session attendee opting for the Vogue experience with professional hair and makeup, $65 will be added to the amount due at the time of booking. 

Images are sold separately through both printed products and digital image files, and are chosen during the reveal. The purchase of any printed product includes digital versions of the corresponding image in both high-resolution and social media-resolution file sizes.
