Shoot Day! We love small local businesses, and it is not surprise that we support women running businesses, it was so hard not to accommodate the challenges their schedule and our schedule presented once we spoke with Amanda Whitehead [ owner of the boutique ]
Upon our phone consultation, Amanda and I sparked up a great conversation and she just loved our style when it came to doing these 20+ dresses for their content library. She was seeking a more relatable and approachable direction for the images, although her product sources offer magnificent in-studio stock photography for all the dresses and accessories offer in their inventory.
I personally loved the fact that she will be offering such amazing solutions to the formal and bridal markert in the area. I knew that we had to be part of it. We made it ALL possible. These images will be utilized for social media, brochures, marketing efforts and website branding - With her project, we incorporated headshots for Amanda, Dani + Anders [Andi] as well as structure shots for the storefront.
Their boutique will focus on selling bridal gowns, prom and ball dresses as we;; as Mother of the Bride/Groom dresses along with bridesmaids dresses and all the jewelry, purses, veils, furs and other high end accessories to complete the perfect look for that special occasion.
Our Behind The Scenes Process: Our Friday afternoon consisted of 10 models / 20+ dresses with accessories / Two HMUA s / One Set Stylist. Amanda offered such a great atmosphere for our work space - Great energy and vibes, food and smiles.
Since our client and her team were pressed to have these photographed rapidly because there were some schedules to accommodate and in order to make it happen we started a bit earlier than proposed and all under 3 hours all was done. We used natural light - We utilized the area near the shop for better access to the wardrobe as well.
A project like this, usually implements one to two days to carry to completion only on the production side, and with our studio volume, post processing took a few days in between jobs, travel and other prior work.
We have delivered all the images promised,and while they were at Market in Atlanta purchasing and exploring the new trends, they were able to receive their images and start their own schedule of posts and marketing directives. We have no doubts that this boutique will stand tall and will offer not only great customer service but extraordinary choices in product for the target market.
