What To Expect At Your Viewing/Ordering Appointment
Feb 25, 2019 | By: Studio Z Photography
At our appointment, I will show you all the edited photographs from our session together.
Before we start narrowing them down, let's picture how you and your family would like to enjoy your images.
Option 1: Lots of digital files and just a handful of small prints? Option 2: A gorgeous album or photo box to treasure for a lifetime? Option 3: Fine Art Prints /canvases/ frames/ acrylic/ wood wall display?
Not sure which option suits you? Take this (rather imprecise but fun) little Personality Quiz!
If you're true digital creatures and only like to enjoy your beautiful photographs on your phone/tablet/computer, then a Digital Base Package plus All Digital Add On is perfect for you.
Start with a small Base Package (3-5 images). These are the photographs that you absolutely love and are planning to 'do something with'.
I will retouch these files to a professional standard that I'm happy with, and provide you with a colour correct professional print, so that you have a reference if you were to make reprints at a consumer lab.
The rest of the photos can be purchased as an 'All Digital's Add-On'. These photos are edited but not retouched. Please see this BLOG for detailed comparison between 'edited' and 'retouched' photographs.
If you love to have something beautiful that you can hold, touch, and treasure, then an album or boutique photo box is perfect.
They are professionally printed and beautifully crafted, all the paper and ink are rated archival, which means they will last a lifetime without fading. (obviously please don't put them in direct sunlight.)
Our first step is to choose between a boutique box, a traditional Japanese cotton covered matted album, or a modern flush mount album.
- If you love the boutique boxes, we will narrow your images down to however many you absolutely love. The boutique boxes come in different depths, and can accommodate any of the base packages.
- If you love the traditional Japanese cotton covered matted album, we will select your favourite 10 or 20 images for your base package, because this album only comes in either 10 pages or 20 pages.
- If you love the modern flush mount albums, we will narrow your images down to however many images you absolutely love. The design of this album is flexible, and can accommodate any of the 10 images or more base packages.
Please note that ONLY images in your selected base package will be retouched and included in your album or boutique photo box.
If you love all the rest of the images as well, they can be purchased as an 'All Digital's Add-On'. These photos are edited but not retouched. Please see this BLOG for detailed comparison between 'edited' and 'retouched' photographs.
If you love Ready to Hang Wall Art, please follow the wall gallery planner's instructions (emailed to you) and send me a phone-pic of your wall before our appointment. This will give me time to set up your room view in my specialised software, so that during our appointment, we can virtually place your images on your wall to work out the most suitable sizes and groupings before placing your order.
If you're renting/building, or just not quite ready to put up wall art yet, you might be interested in the beautiful unframed Giclee fine-art prints on museum-quality archival professional photographic papers. This way you can preserve them safely in a shallow box that doesn't take up too much space until you're ready to frame them.
While planning your order, don’t forget to consider the people in your life who would love to receive the thoughtful gift of beautiful portraiture for an upcoming holiday, birthday, celebration, or– better yet – for no reason other than the fact you were thinking of them!
I hope this post is helpful in preparing you for your viewing appointment.
Please don't stress about making a decision now, this is just a guide to help you start thinking/talking to your family about what you might like.
At your viewing appointment, I will guide you through step by step to choose the perfect product that will bring joy to you and your family for a lifetime.
