If you are interested in moving forward with JB Photography we can chat over the phone, via email, or in person at my office in Germantown. It's totally up to you if you want to meet in person, some brides-to-be feel more comfortable meeting in person, others are OK with waiting until the session to see my smiling face. However we chat, we'll hash out the details of the when and where. I have plenty of recommendations of shoot location for this area, but I want you to weigh in as well!
The Day Of
We both show up on time at the agreed upon location. Don't forget your outfit changes! Depending on where we are shooting, we may take the outfit changes with us, or we may be able to leave them in the car. Sometimes we have to get a little creative as to where you can change! We'll walk around and take a whole bunch of photos. I'll have you stand or sit in certain positions so you both look amazing, but will always ask if you feel comfortable or awkward. These photos are supposed to represent you as a couple, so I don't want to put you in positions that you don't feel like you. We will do a combination of tradition look at the camera and smile photos and what I call forced journalism shots. This will give you a good mixture of traditional and candid photos.
After the session, I will put up a social media sneak peek. This can be on Facebook or Instagram, you let me know which one you want. I'll then go through and edit the best shots. You typically get around 100 photos back. The editing process includes, color correction, lighting correction, cropping, and some special effects like vignettes. Within 6 weeks, all of your favorites will be edited and upload to a client gallery. From the gallery you can download and order your photos. You own the copyrights to the prints, so you do not have to order through the site, but it is there for you as an option. Your client gallery will stay live for 6 weeks after I send the final images, so make sure to download and save the photos somewhere safe within that time period.
