Planning your session


First:

Consultation


When you are ready to book your session, contact me and we’ll start with a consultation at the studio. There is no cost or obligation for the consultation, just an hour to sit down and chat about you, your relationships, your style, your ideas, and how we’ll plan to capture all of that good stuff. Then we’ll pick a date when this will all go down and finalize locations, ideas, concepts, wardrobe recommendations, and every last detail before your session.

Session


Once we have completed the consultation, we’ll have booked a date for your portraits, and then the magic starts. Come ready to have a LOT of fun, be relaxed and let me work my magic. I promise you will be blown away.

Third:

Presentation


This is probably the BEST and MOST IMPORTANT part. 4-5 days after your session you’ll come back to the studio and we’ll present your photographs on the large presentation system and ooh and ahh over all your awesome portraits (it’s OK to cry). This is the first time you’ll see your photographs (except maybe a sneak peek will be shared on facebook). This is the final meeting and we will narrow down to your favorite portraits and then make ALL decisions in regards to your portrait order. The presentation takes about 1.5 hours to finalize your package and I’ll be there to help you every step of the way. No pressure sales or lame products like other studios, just real artwork and crazy awesome portraits. I’ll make it as easy and awesome as possible. In about 2-3 weeks you’ll be able to come back and pick up your order and start sharing your family portrait goodness!


First:

Consultation


If you are planning your wedding and like what you see, contact me and we can schedule a consultation at the studio. There is no cost or obligation for the consultation, just a chance to meet face to face and see if we are a good fit for each other. I’ll show you the amazing artwork that will be created from your wedding portraits, and help you understand a little better about how I will capture your wedding through photography. If you think my vision is the right approach for your wedding, I’d be honored to pour my heart into creating something truly awesome for you!

Second:

Booking


To guarantee my availability for your wedding, everything will be on the up-and-up with a legit contract to guarantee you’ll get what I promise. My clients tend to book me anywhere from 6-12 months in advance, so plan accordingly. A $1,500 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your date. After that we’ll schedule any future meetings to finalize your wedding day details and plan out an awesome engagement session.

Third:

Final Product


Your wedding photographs will be ready for presentation about 2-3 weeks after your wedding, fully processed and ready to behold. Grab a couple of tissues, you might need them. My vision for your wedding photographs is complete when I get to create something truly unique, incredibly awesome, and literally artwork. We’ll schedule on final meeting shortly after your wedding to finalize the details of your wedding album, and any other amazing artwork that you would love to create and own. Once your album is finalized, the design process will take anywhere between 1-2 months to make sure it is absolutely museum-worthy and ready to print.


First:

Planning


If you would like to create a one-of-a-kind memory of your growing child, contact me to schedule a time to learn more about my Infant Lifestyle albums. Proper planning and preparation is key for a successful production, but it’s easier than you think. We will collaborate using online tools to plan out every single letter, it’s relation to your family, any props or locations that will be incorporated and how to plan around your infant’s “schedule”. Because we will be photographing over the space of multiple days, it’s important to plan a few months in advance to guarantee the best availability for your needs

Second:

Production


Over the span of three days, we will execute on our meticulously conceived plans for each letter and then realize we were expecting an infant to do all this! With a lot of patience and backup plans, everything always works out. I want your child’s personality and character to be accurately portrayed in the photographs, and a lot of changes will be made on the fly. But, in the end, it will have been a lot of fun making some incredibly awesome photographs of your child.

Third:

Presentation


This is probably the BEST and MOST IMPORTANT part. A few days after the final photographs have been taken, you’ll come back to the studio and we’ll present your photographs on the large presentation system and ooh and ahh over a week’s worth of hard work (it’s OK to cry). This is the first time you’ll see your photographs (except maybe a sneak peek will be shared on facebook). This is the final meeting and your album will be complete and ready to present, and make ALL decisions in regards to other artwork you would like to display in the home. In about 2-3 weeks you’ll be able to come back and pick up your order and start sharing your family portrait goodness!
