What should I expect at a typical headshot, maternity, family or engagement photo shoot?
We will start each session with a couple posed shots, but please feel free to get comfortable, interact naturally if there are others in the shoot, and ask questions if you're unsure of your posture or expression. It is our job to make you look your best, so rely on our direction and feedback and know that you're in good hands. We will often try several different spots within the same location to get a good variety of pictures. You can bring an outfit change or two, but please keep in mind that the "golden hour" of photography (right before the sun sets) is exactly that: an hour, so we will have to work fast to get in as much shooting time as possible.
What should I wear for my headshot, maternity, family or engagement photo shoot?
A simple, solid color shirt/top/dress with a little texture that fits you well and matches your eyes would be best. No busy patterns, graphics or excessive jewelry as they may distract from the focal point: You. Please feel free to bring a couple clothing options if you have trouble deciding. If you normally color your hair, getting that done the same day or close to the date of the shoot is a great idea.
What kind of information does the photographer need before my wedding?
The more information and direction you provide, the better. Austin has over a decade of experience shooting weddings, but if you have special requests or unique, planned moments during your ceremony or reception, please don't hesitate to let us know! Some other information we'll be asking you includes: Number of bridesmaids and groomsmen, what kind of poses appeal to you for the formal wedding pictures, what family members you will want in what pictures (and their full names so we may call them out when the time comes), a complete schedule of the day, contact info for the wedding coordinator or someone other than the bride and groom for information on the day of the wedding.
How much time should I factor into my wedding schedule for pictures?
30 minutes to 3 hours for getting ready, 15-45 minutes for family/bridal party shots, 20-60 minutes for couples shots
When is the best time for bride and groom pictures?
The last hour before the sun sets is the perfect time to plan to take bride/groom pictures when possible.
