Sample Timeline

Week 1

  • Contact Email From You   Hello! I can't wait to work with you! 
  • Initial Meeting In Your Workspace   Discuss broad shot list, explore your space together, shoot quick tests, discuss broad cost estimate if possible, discuss broad schedule. 
  • Confirmation Emails   Confirm detailed shot list, confirm detailed shooting schedule, confirm full bid and adjust scope if necessary.
  • Contract Signing + Retainer Fee   Once you're happy with the shot list, schedule and cost estimate you will receive a contract and an invoice for 50% of the total bid.

Week 2

  • Shoot DAY 1   Honor shot list, pad schedule for exploration on the day (and for lunch!)
  • Shoot DAY 2   Some more involved Processes or Inspiration Sessions may require a second shooting day
  • Proofing Gallery For Notes   Within a day or two you will receive a small gallery of photos that represent the full scope of your shoot.  While this is a down-and-dirty edit, it will give you a chance to comment on color and mood so we are both on the same page ahead of the complete edit.

  • Editing   Enjoy your weeks, you likely won't hear from us!

Week 4 or 5

  • Final Payment   when editing is complete (within 2 to 3 weeks of your shoot) you will receive an invoice for the balance of the bid. 
  • Delivery   once your final invoice is paid you will receive your polished photos via a password protected gallery as well as a Usage License certificate. 

Follow Up

  • We will check in with you after a month or two to see how you were able to use your photos.  We are always open to feedback as well, so it's a valuable learning opportunity for us!
