Many photographers have often asked us how we manage to keep our photos consistent and authentic. The secret is: We have a Shooting Guide. And we are really happy to finally share it with you guys.
A couple of years ago we handed over our first Shooting Guide to our couples. Since then we have added new ideas, tips and inspiration every year. The goal was and still is to teach our couples and create the best conditions for unforgettable, emotional and authentic photographs. After booking our couples receive our Shooting Guide – with lots of tips and inspirations. So they have all the important information they need and also know what’s important for good photographs.
Our Shooting Guide helps our couples a lot – especially with the outfit selection. In addition, our Shooting Guide has simplified our way of working and improved the quality of our photos a lot. Although we have specialized in weddings and couple shoots, the Shooting Guide is universally usable and also helps you with family, portrait or other shoots.
Say goodbye to bad light situations, shirts with colorful prints and photos with little individuality! And hello to consistent photos, authentic outfits, matching locations and happy customers!
These are the topics:
- Location Choice
- Outdoor Shoots
- Home Stories
- Outfit Choice
- Connection Appointments
Our Shooting Guide is designed as a 24-page brochure with wire stitching and a closed size of 210 x 297 mm (DinA4). We decided on a layout in portrait format, so that the Shooting Guide can be printed and is also readable as a PDF on a smartphone. So you give your Shooting Guide either printed or digitally to your customers. Our couple shoots often happen spontaneously and abroad. So we prefer a digital Shooting Guide.
The design is clean, minimalist – and offers plenty of room for beautiful photos. You can easily insert your own photos, exchange fonts and colors, and modify the text if you like. So you can easily create your very own Shooting Guide. Here you can see a few pages of our Shooting Guide. So you get an insight into the structure and design and can better imagine what your Shooting Guide might look like…
