PORTFOLIO | PHOTOGRAPHY | DESIGNER
Photographer, Javier Sepúlveda, was born in San Juan, located in the southern most tip of Texas, on the 27th of August, 1976.
Early on he developed a love of photography. He is known for his good sense in design and style. Through his lens he captures your most cherished memories. His passion for photography, combined with his desire to capture the romance, enables him to create artwork that really shows the passion and emotion.
Using a photo journalistic style, or also known as documentary style, allows people to express themselves and capture their true personalities. It shows in every picture. That's the difference.

A little homework before your session
What should I/we wear?
It is best to keep clothing simple, avoiding logos or busy patterns. I always suggest layers/textures. In group photos, color coordinating is always more pleasing to the eye. Wear clothes that represent you and who you are. Feel free to bring a change of clothing.
What to bring?
For family and/or children photo sessions: outfit changes, a drink, favorite toy, special stuffed animal. Please make sure your little one has been fed and had a nap before the photo session for a more comfortable and positive experience.
How long does the photo shoot session last?
The actual session itself usually lasts about 30 minutes or up to 3 hours for a newborn and some of the larger portrait and senior packages.
How do we book you?
Simply let me know you would like to book a photo shoot session, what dates work best for you and what type of session you are looking for through my contact page, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, call or text 956.289.0266.
Where will the photos be taken? Where is your studio?
We currently have a small studio at our home, you will receive the address to our home studio once you book your session. We also shoot outdoors at any location. Once your photo shoot date is booked we will discuss what type of feel you are looking for in your photographs, we can then work together to come up with the perfect location. Newborn photo sessions are almost always held within our home studio.
When can we expect to see our photo’s from our session?
Post production for most sessions are completed within two weeks after the date of the shoot. If you require the images to be completed prior to two weeks after the date of the shoot, a rush-process fee of $100.00 will be charged. I will email you a link to your personal password protected on-line proofing site and password.
How long does it take to get my prints?
Product creation times vary, however in general, print orders will be completed within four weeks after the product order is submitted.
Similar to the post production process, if you require rush-processing, a fee of $100.00 will be charged. Additional fees for rush shipping may also apply.
How long does it take to get my album?
As with our other products, production times vary. However you can expect to receive your album 4-6 weeks after placing the order. The process before placing the order varies in duration depending on how quickly you respond to the instructions for the album design as well as the amount of changes you request after the initial designs. Some brides complete this within a month or two, others take over a year. Similar to the post production process, if you require rush-processing, a fee of $100.00 will be charged. Additional fees for rush shipping may also apply.
I would like you to shoot my wedding, how do I start the process?
Reach me via my contact form along with your wedding date and venue, if secured. I can respond by email or phone. If possible, I would like to meet you both in person so you can get to know your future photographer and can ask me everything you need. Once you’ve decided to choose me as your photographer, I will send a contract for you to sign and and return with a deposit. After that, you can check “find a photographer” off your wedding to-do list.
What does a wedding session cost?
My wedding fees start at $2500 for 4 hours of coverage. Contact me for a full rate sheet and details. You’ll find that I like to keep things simple. If you are eloping, doing something very simple, or only need me for a few hours, shoot me an email and we can find something that will work for everyone. I also offer a City Hall package at $1000.
How much do I need to deposit?
I require a 50% initial deposit and the rest of the fee to be paid two weeks before the wedding day.
How far should we book in advance?
Typically 6-12 months in advance as soon as you have a date and venue. If you’re not the plan way in the advance type of guy or gal, fret not. Check with me for availability.
Will you be shooting the wedding?
Yes. You are hiring me to shoot the wedding, not another photographer working under my name.
Do you shoot with an assistant?
I always shoot with an assistant/2nd photographer with rare exceptions. This frees me up to focus on shooting and looking for special moments while ensuring that between the two of us, we don’t miss the important ones. The 2nd shooter offers a different but complementary perspective and allows us to work efficiently throughout the entire day.
Where are you based?
I am based in McAllen, Texas, if you aren’t in any of these locations, please read the next question.
Do you travel?
I love to travel and will generally arrive at least the day before the event to help ensure that unexpected travel delays do not make me late or miss your big day. Let me know where you are and we’ll figure out the best way to get me out to you.
When should we do the wedding portraits?
This is mostly up to you, but usually a couple of hours before the ceremony or immediately following the ceremony. Shooting before the ceremony allows you to check one more thing off the day’s to-do list early on and, more importantly, to afford you and the wedding party a chance to enjoy the cocktail hour and mingle with your guests. Shooting after the ceremony, depending on the time, could allow you to take advantage of the setting sun and its softer light.
Do you take getting-ready shots?
These are some of my favorite photographs to capture. The energy and excitement of everyone moving about is there, but I can also capture the calm and solemn moments when the bride and groom think about their wedding vows, the friends and family around them, and everything leading up to and away from this moment.
Do you take dance shots?
That’s where the fun is. I am right there with everyone on the dance floor like a ninja with camera. A ninja with dance moves.
Do you shoot in RAW?
Yes. RAW allows me to get the best quality and image detail when I am processing the photos.
Do you shoot in B&W?
I love B&W photographs. There is something so timeless about them. Since I shoot digital, this allows me to decide after the fact whether I want to process the image in B&W or Color. However, I generally shoot the image with a color preference in mind based on what I am seeing.
What about the the vintage look?
There are countless ways to edit a photo. Some may appeal to one couple, while not to another. If you see a particular style you like, please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate.
When will I get to see my wedding photos?
Your photos will generally be ready within 4-6 weeks following the wedding. I go through a careful process of choosing the best images from the day and processing each of them with individual attention.
Do you shoot video?
Unfortunately, to focus my attention on the photography, I cannot do both at once myself. However,
Do you offer albums?
Yes. I offer custom designed 6x6 to 12 x 12 hardbound coffee-table photo books along with a selection of other a la carte products.
Who chooses the photographs in the album?
I offer you a chance to pick a selection of photos that you must have in the album. However, I do advise that you let me choose the majority of the photos for the album since I will use my best judgment to select the best and more relevant photos to tell the story of your wedding day. One of the top reasons, couples often times say they haven’t ordered the albums from their photographers is because they haven’t gotten around to choosing the pictures for the album.
Will you post the photographs online?
A: Yes. I will post the photos on a private site online for you and your guests to view and order.
Wear What You Would Normally Wear.
Senior Sessions are to showcase you, which means you have to dress like you. Obviously the simplest of the solutions, but definitely the best of all. What do you usually wear to school? What do you wear to church or a formal event? What do you wear when you go out on a fancy date with a boyfriend or girlfriend? Some of those questions should help you decide what to wear.
Bring A Couple Of Outfits, And A Few Throw-Ins.
My general rule of thumb is to always have a least one outfit prepared for each hour of shooting, if you want to be ambitious do 2. You might not use them all, but at least you will have choices. There might be a time when you will get out into a nice field of grass and the photographer will tell you the pictures dont work because you top fades into the grass. Well what do you do now? Good thing you brought those extra outfits! And ALWAYS bring an extra jacket, extra shirt, and extra pair of sock. Trust me.
Bring A Variety Of Different “Types” Of Clothes.
If you have a 4 hour photoshoot, don't bring 4 shirts and 4 pairs of jeans. Your an exciting person, your clothes should be exciting too! Girls might bring skinny jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts and capris; with appropriate tops, shoes and accessories. Guys, on the other hand, might bring shorts, jeans, dockers and slacks; with the appropriate style of shirt and shoes.
Stay Away From Stretched And Faded.
Almost as important as wearing clothes that fit you, is wearing newish looking clothes. Nothing looks worse in that perfect picture than a hole in your shirt. Try to wear clothes that you don't wear on a daily basis. You know those nice clothes that your mom bought you that are in the back of your dresser? Bring those. You dont necessarily have to go out and buy new clothes, but there are some ways to get around spending tons of money on them.
Buy New Clothes, And Then Return Them.
I have had a lot of seniors mom’s go out a buy them over $600 worth of new clothes for the shoot and simply return them afterwards. There is nothing wrong with this, as long as you don’t remove the tags. If you do plan on doing this, make sure you let the photographer know so that he/she can plan around the tags that were left on the clothes.
