What's it like to walk

Info + Pricing

with Melissa Hidalgo Photography


I'm so excited you are here and considering me to be your photographer - choosing a photographer is a huuge deal and a big investment too, and I completely understand that, been there, done that.  after all when the day comes to end the pictures are what keeps those memories and feelings alive. Here's the deal. When you choose a photographer for you  session or wedding, you aren't just choosing someone who will take the photos. That part's important, but there's also the part where this is the person you'll be hanging out with, you wanna connect. 

If photography is just another checklist for you, we might not be the right fit. 

 I believe that images can bring you back to the experiences and people you cherish the most.

I believe in being authentically you, be weird, be unique, be you - I just hope I get to come along for the ride. 

I believe traveling is good for the soul, the fresh air, dirt, rain or shine; lets adventure. 

Lets book!!

Frequently Asked 

Where are you located? 

I'm based in the just outside of Calgary, Alberta Region, but will travel! Check out my bucketlist.

What if we cancel/resched our date?

If you choose to cancel, you forfeit all monies paid. If rescheduling, I'll work with accommodating your new date, or find you a replacement. 

What happens if the weather is baD?

Local sessions to me, will be rescheduled to a new date the works for both. If its a session that isn't local, I try to plan a day or two around for flexibility incase of weather changes. 

How many images are included? 

I believe in quality over quantity,  therefore I try to not put a number on packages, but on average you'll receive 40-50 photos per hour spent with you.  *This will vary with weddings + Elopements, but your gallery will always reflect your day.*

Do you give out unedited photos?

No, they don't represent my brand. 

How does payment work?

Intimate Weddings: It's a $500 non-refundable retainer with a signed contract, to hold your date. The remaining is due 30 days before the event. If you need a payment plan, I'm happy to work out a monthly or divide the payments up, and you can pay cash, credit card, or EMT.

Lifestyle sessions non refundable retainer of $100. Remaining due day of session.

Do you have insurance?

Yes, I do have insurance !
