Hello! My name is Ken Gehring and I am a portrait photographer based out of Benton, Arkansas specializing in contemporary glamour portraiture. I began my photography journey in 2011 and my dedication to this craft has given me the strength to learn and perfect my skills to become a widely known name amongst the photography community. Having always shot with natural/available light, I am now working in my new studio space with other forms of artificial light. I am super excited about the endless possibilities this offers my clients.
Professional hair/makeup, a design session to plan your shoot, wardrobe access and your photo shoot with Ken Gehring in our beautiful and private studio. Around 30-40 proofs are shown during a scheduled Reveal appointment and are a separate and optional purchase. A $470 non-refundable sitting fee holds your date/time and we normally book about 1-3 months ahead. Our sessions include an in person consultation with styling and beauty guide , a photo shoot that takes about 3 - 4 hours, professional hair and make-up and styling for 2 people (with the choice of bringing the rest of your family members for a family portrait towards the end of the session), 4 - 5 outfit changes and a viewing session of your beautiful portraits, that will be presented to you.
After the shoot and the images are retouched a Reveal Session will be scheduled to come in and view your images. This is a separate appointment either at the studio or via Skype (for our long distance clients) usually 2-3 weeks after your shoot and is the viewing/ordering session for any possible images you may want to purchase (we do not do online galleries). Our policy is if you don’t love any of the images from your session, you are not obligated to purchase.
There’s a vast array of photographers that just sell the digitals and you have to take care of the rest. Unfortunately, most of the products available to consumers are low-grade, not to mention poorly reproduced in regards to color and quality. We only put your images on first-class materials and master files (digitals) are either already included with the products or available as a standalone collection or add-on.
Images are a separate purchase with Wall Portraits starting at $150, Our Keepsake Folio Albums at $800 and Digital Collections at $2500. Most clients plan for an investment of $1200-4000 for their experience and images.
Contact us for a detailed price list and/or to book your shoot.
With that being said, I always do my best to create portraits that you'll absolutely love and don't want to be without. I personally invite you to come and spend the day with us and let us frame your soul.
