Your photographs are meant to be cherished, preserved, experiences and passed on; not quickly bypassed in your social media feed.
Why Kent Smith Photography?
At Kent Smith Photography our style is refined and timeless. We carefully craft portraits that have beautiful dimensional lighting, elegant, yet natural posing and powerful compositions.
Our studio proudly offers a collection of the highest quality products available, from custom created albums, to gorgeous canvas wall portraits which will compliment any home décor. These carefully selected products combined with our artful retouching, take your portraits out of the ‘photo’ realm and into the fine art category. Your portraits will very quickly become the most cherished pieces in your home and heart.
Kent Smith Photography has been a pillar of the Columbus community for over 3 decades. We invite you to come and experience for yourself why families have trusted us to make portraits that will be cherished for generations to come.
What to Expect
Your session retainer includes your time with our photographer, all image designs, and a gallery for you to view in studio with a minimum of 60 images. The in-person viewing appointment will be in the Kent Smith gallery/screening room and your minimum investment of $375 toward your order will be collected the day of your session.
We carry the finest archival quality products available. We handcraft and frame our canvas and fine art prints here in our studio with attention to every detail. Our handcrafted Italian leather albums, vinyl wall art and gorgeous modern metal art are unrivaled. We will guide you through all the finishes for our products during your order appointment. We encourage you to touch and look at our artwork finishes while you’re here for your session as well.
Please note, auction certificate winners are not required to have a minimum investment toward an order but must present the certificate prior to the session.
One of the amazing things about our studio is that we are small and give your clients a custom experience like no other. We have one photographer and your session retainer fee reserves our time just for you. These retainers are not refundable, so if you find that you cannot make a session at the scheduled time, please reschedule at least 7 days prior to the session and 100% of your session will be applied to your account. If rescheduled within the 7 day window of your session but before your session date, 50% of your session retainer will be credited to your account. If you do not show on the day of your session, you will forfeit the entire session fee. Please notify us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org outside of business hours or call the studio directly during normal business hours. Our normal business days are Monday through Thursday, 10am to 6pm.
If you are using an auction or special certificate for your session, the same guidelines outline above will apply to your reservation fee for rescheduling purposes.
Weekends are the time we reserve to be with our own families, but we do occasionally schedule on weekends to accommodate our clients schedules. If you need a weekend time there is a $100 non-refundable charge.
We understand sometimes last minute changes are unavoidable, so we appreciate your understanding that we are a business and must operate efficiently.
