We want the very best results for you as our clients. This applies to the scouting of your location! Whether we have shot there hundreds of time, or it is our first opportunity to photograph at your venue, we do our due diligence. Before we capture a single image, you can rest assured that we are extremely prepared, and know all the bet spots. That is part of what you have invested in. By letting us do what we do best, and putting that trust in our studio, you will be amazingly surprised at the possibilities.
Here is how we set ourselves us for success.
- We will ask you questions before the wedding day, to see if there is any part of the venue that you are especially drawn to. Is there anything special, as far as location goes, that is “a must” to capture?
- We love to familiarize ourselves (if it is the first time at the venue) by doing research online, to see how the venue has been captured in the past. We then brainstorm among our team, and discuss how we can give it the True Photography perspective.
- On the day itself, we always arrive ridiculously early to explore every nook and cranny. We make sure to review everything in depth, so the ideas are very fresh in our minds, and we have our game plan for the day.
- We see how the light is falling, based on the present conditions, and make specific adjustments.
When we scout a venue, we are looking at it from a very different perspective than how our clients will see it. What looks good to your eyes can look very different to the camera. Or, something that may not stand out to you as much, can actually be a brilliant photograph. We are always looking for inspiration, and finding ways to be creative and think outside of the box. Leave this to us! Expecting the unexpected is the way to go.
The examples below are a direct result of our scouting strategy. We have also provided a little insight into our thought process.
While shooting a wedding, we are fully alert and ready. From the moment we arrive, we pay attention to the slightest details. We also make constant decisions throughout the day, to achieve the best results possible. For example, when taking in our surroundings, we are anticipating whether to shoot slightly higher or lower, in front of something or behind it, indoors or out, or through something rather than straight on.
