Portrait Session – Investment | Ryan Tolbert Photography

Portrait Session – Investment

Portraits should be a reflection of who you are.  They can be used to make you feel better about yourself, to document a certain milestone in your life, or a relationship.  As a photographer I want to capture this stage of your life and create a special memory.

I label myself as a full service photographer.  This means that I don’t just want to take your picture, I want to create an experience.  This experience is tailored to you and just you.  This is why I want to get to know you better.  Photography is personal, and the best images are created when you allow me to find out what it is that makes you…you.


 

The Pre-Shoot Consultation

As part of the experience, I prefer to meet my clients for a pre-shoot consultation, prior to booking their shoot.

At your pre-shoot consultation, we will get to know each other. I want your session to reflect who you are stylistically and personally, so we’ll spend a large amount of time talking about you and what you like. We’ll also spend time talking about what you envision for your session so that you and I can start working together towards creating a session that is uniquely you!

This is a great time for us just to hang out and chat before we actually get together to shoot. Of course I’ll also go over what else you can expect from your session at this meeting, as well as full product pricing, and we’ll sign your booking contract.

 

The Day of the Session

We will plan to meet on-location and find just the right setting to create some spectacular images.  We will spend time walking around, talking, and laughing.  Trust me, this isn’t going to be like going to portrait studio in the 80’s where you stood there stiff as board.  We may move on to one or two more locations to give us more variety.  There will also be ample time for outfit changes if needed.
 

The Image Premier and Ordering Session

After your session, I will get to work fully editing your final images. My turn-around time is typically 2-3 weeks. I like to show my clients finished images, rather than un-edited proofs, so that they know what the end result of what they’re purchasing will look like.

When I’m nearly finished editing your images, we will schedule a time to meet for your Image Premier and Ordering Session. During this session, you will get to see your images for the first time and you’ll pick out which images you would like to put into your album, image box, or which you’d like to have printed as wall art.
