How Does This All Work?
Dream Shoot Planning Session
We start by meeting in-person at our Walnut Creek Studio or by scheduling a video chat, a week or two before your session. We will talk about how we can make this session unique to you and how we can tell your story as a couple. We will talk about wardrobe, locations, and decide on a theme for the shoot. We also talk about our goals for the shoot and how the images are going to be displayed in your home.
Next we will load up all our professional quality camera gear and lighting equipment and drive to our planned shoot location. Our Engagement Sessions normally last approx. two hours.
While nobody likes stiff and un-natural formal poses, it's a rare couple that are naturals in front of the camera. Most couples want a little help to ensure they look their best. This is not an area to take lightly and not something all photographers excel at. We help guide you into a natural looking and flattering position that does not look phony or stiff.
After your shoot we will cull through the hundreds of images to find the very best. This is a huge time saver for you and a great value add.
We then perform a minimum of approx. TWELVE different edits to all the best images, to ensure they are looking their best, before you ever see them. We then take your favorites through a second round of editing to create something unique for your wall or album.
Viewing and Ordering Session
One - two weeks after your shoot, we will meet again and you will have an opportunity to view the very best images from your shoot. Using our state of the art software, we will preview the actual images on your very own walls and look at Save The Date design options. At this session you will make your final selections and order any prints or engagement albums.
Art and Album Design
After you place your order, our graphic designers and print artisans go to work to create a final work of art for your home. There is a great deal of behind-the-scenes work that occurs to really take your image to the next level and this is all custom work done on an image by image basis.
After your artwork is ready, we will meet again one last time to hand deliver your final products. We love seeing the faces of joy these art pieces bring to our clients and we want to ensure every detail is satisfactory.
