How can I prepare for my photoshoot?
It is best to wear neutrals or have at least a few people in your group wear neutrals. If there are many patterns and designs it can distract from people looking at you in the photo. We want the viewer to see you, unless of course, you are modeling that shirt, then, that is perfect!
Feel free to bring extra outfits. If time allows, we will get some of each outfit.
Feel free to treat yourself the day before or the day of the shoot. It could be fun to get your hair cut and dyed, get your nails done, go in for a facial whatever helps you feel confident. Remember that these photos will last a lifetime, so make sure your hair and makeup are done to your liking. I suggest bringing your makeup with for touch-ups. Some of my clients choose to hire a hair and makeup artist for the day of their shoot. If you are looking for someone to work with, I can help arrange that as well. Men may want to shave the day before to ensure there are no nicks the day of the shoot.
On your way to our shoot, I would say do something you find relaxing like take deep breathes (I am not as scary as you anticipate.), listen to soothing music, and bring a stress ball. Ok, I am kidding about the stress ball, but if it works, do it!
You could go the total opposite route and get pumped. Blare the music to your favorite tunes (lots of bass), drink the coffee, scream at the top of your lungs, whatever it takes to get hyped. You are getting your picture taken and you know you’re going to rock the shoot!
How Soon Will I Receive My Images?
I get so excited to see the images that I become like a machine and start editing right after our session. I love to edit. Editing is my passion. I am a bit of a perfectionist though, so sometimes it can take a few days to get all your images. All clients receive a sneak peek within 24 hours of our session. My maximum turn-around time is 10 days from the date of the session (including weddings). I know other photographers say weeks, sometimes months. I know how exciting it can be to see your wedding photos for the first time. Its almost a given that you will want to see at least some images from your big day when you are on your honeymoon. Its fun to be able to look at some of the images and talk about the day with your new spouse.
Can I Have The RAW files?
You will receive jpeg files that have been edited professionally. This means that the images you receive are ready for print or for use on social media. No need to do any further edits!
