Hand in hand, lets do this.
SHARE YOUR STORY
The next (very important) step is figuring out what kind of session you really want and finding the best way to capture you as a couple. Do you want a relaxed lifestyle in your home? A session celebrating amidst Idaho's incredible outdoor backdrop? At your favorite bar? Or something where you get a little fancy? We want your session to tell your story. Picking a powerful location that resonates with you as a couple is huge part of creating images that feel like you. We will sit down together either in person or over the phone to handcraft a session completely personalized for you from the choice of location, the time of day, whether or not to include your beloved dog and share with you our carefully curated couple's session guide that contains little nuggets of photo wisdom.
YOU'RE OFFICIALLY ON OUR CALENDAR!
We’ll send over an agreement form that you can read over and sign as well as pay your session fee online through our secure client management system. Ladies, if you're also wanting to feel extra polished the day of your session, let us know. We can take care of booking a professional hair and makeup artist for you!
In the weeks leading up to your session we will send out a guide that contains location suggestions, best practices for hair and makeup, and outfit inspiration. Together we will come up with a few ideas for the perfect location. Glean and Co will check out these options ahead of time to make sure they are in good condition for your session. Ideal time of day is early morning with the sunrise or evening about an hour and a half prior to sunset. Feel free to share images with us of you've saved for inspiration.
TODAY'S THE DAY
We’ve talked about your dream location, you've got the outfits, the dog and maybe a bottle of champagne. You're ready for your session! This is the part where you get to just have fun! Let loose and get a little sappy and a little silly. We will guide you through your session, make you laugh, maybe make you cry all while documenting the entire thing. So do your best to set those nerves aside and enjoy celebrating with your favorite person. Not only do we want to get great photos of you, we want you to walk away with a fun, memorable experience as well.
If the weather should not cooperate (Thanks Idaho!) or an emergency occur, we will re-schedule for a time that works for us all.
WHEN THE WAIT IS OVER...
Approximately 3 weeks after your session we will plan a time to get together to do an in person photo reveal where you will get to see your edited images for the first time and pick your favorites. We will also share Glean and Co's print and albums choices. Prior to this session we ask you to look around your house and think about where you might want to hang images or how best to showcase the art we have just created. If you have any questions about the products we offer we’re happy to share more information and details so you can go into the preview and purchase session knowing exactly what you’d like to order- even before you see the images.
