We love meeting with clients prior to your session either by phone or in our home studio. This gives us a chance to get to know each other and to discuss what to expect during the photoshoot, discuss outfit ideas, or talk about wedding details!

We accept bookings on the day of our consultation or you may call or email us after our meeting when you are ready to book! We will send over a brief contract and invoice that can be signed and paid electronically. Weddings and events will receive a client portal link that will allow you to access your documents and payment schedule at any time leading up to your big day!

The bond between a horse and rider is often indescribable, but can be reflected in a stunning photograph. Equine fine art is one of the best ways to preserve memories of your horse that is worthy of adorning the walls of your home.

Whether you are celebrating a championship or looking to preserve the treasured memories or your horse, we will work together to create artwork that is a statement piece.

our wall art

As a photographer, lighting is often the most important aspect of an image. With years of experience, I utilize both natural light and flash that allows me to capture a beautiful photograph in nearly any lighting environment.

From lighting large horse show arenas to wedding receptions, Hannah Draughan Photography is committed to producing magazine quality photos for every event!

and techniques

Our Lighting

Colors are so powerful and enriching in photographs, and often tell a story of their own. I love capturing photos that are true-to-life in color with a timeless feel that allows clients to enjoy them for years without feeling that they were simply trendy or fell out of style.

WHAT LOCATIONS DO YOU SHOOT?

We relocated from Illinois to north Alabama in 2020 and still travel for many of our clients throughout the Midwest, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky. We have also traveled as far as Manitoba, Canada and Las Vegas, NV for photography! We love adventure and would absolutely love to speak with you about your event or elopement, regardless of location (travel expenses may apply).
 
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

When you book a session with us, we will provide you with a style guide that has many ideas and tips for wardrobe and posing. We can also set up a style consultation prior to your session if you would like to discuss any ideas further!

WHY DON’T YOU RELEASE ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE?

Photographers do not release RAW images for several reasons. Firstly, it takes a special (and expensive) software to convert RAW images into file types that are able to be downloaded to your computer. Secondly, your session or event package may only guarantee a certain number of edited images. Thirdly, we are not perfect and not every photo turns out great. We use our time and expertise to cull through images and deliver only the best! 

DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
 
Of course! All images that are delivered to you are fully color corrected, straightened and cropped. Premium images are also enhanced with skin corrections and other photoshop magic.

IS STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY AVAILABLE?

When we transitioned to Alabama in 2020, we closed our public studio in Illinois and now have a home studio. We do offer studio sessions for seniors and families upon request. We provide a mobile studio for professional head shot sessions and can come to your business and capture professional head shots for several people in one day.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

Wedding photos are usually delivered in 6-8 weeks (sometimes sooner, depending on our busy season!) and equine and portrait sessions are usually delivered within 1-3 weeks. 


WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?

Things happen and we totally understand that life doesn't always go as planned! We do our best to be flexible and work with your needs. There is no fee to reschedule your session, but cancellation often results in a forfeit of your deposit.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?

In the unfortunate case that you cannot reschedule and must cancel your appointment, your deposit may be forfeit. We understand that life happens so please reach out to us directly with any questions.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

Full day coverage weddings will generally receive 700-1000 images. Portrait and equine sessions will vary depending on which session package you choose.

WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THAT I PRINT THROUGH YOU?

Printing with a professional print house is something that no one regrets! Whether you are looking for a canvas, metal print or framed print, the quality and longevity of a professional print is unrivaled and will last for generations.

WHAT TYPE OF PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER?

We offer industry leading products including: barnwood prints, canvas, metal art, acrylic, albums, wood prints, and so much more!

WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SHOOT?

Golden hour is often a sweet spot! However, early morning light is also very desirable. We will be happy to discuss your session in-depth and determine what time will be the best for your particular session and location.

DO YOU OFFER MINI SESSIONS?

We offer seasonal portrait mini sessions and equestrian mini sessions at every horse show during breaks. We also offer mini sessions at farm shoots for 3 or more horse + rider sessions - ask us for pricing details!

WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE?

We shoot with Nikon gear and utilize both natural light and flash depending on the needs of the session. We understand the importance of light and how it creates a dramatic impact on your images!
