I don’t just want to send you a link and have you click through all of your images for the first time while you’re at work. I want it to be an experience—I want you to dedicate an evening to being together at home to see your images for the first time.
After each session, I’ll have you choose a date a few weeks out to block off an evening or day together to see the photos for the first time. For weddings, I’ll let you know when I’m almost done editing, and then you can choose your date. Plan to spend an hour or two together. Pop some popcorn, pour some wine, put on your home pants, and then open my email.
You’ll start by watching a slideshow of all of your photos together. If you can connect your computer screen to your television, even better.
The Digital Files
After you watch the slideshow, you’ll get a download pin to download your photos. Be sure to put them in a few places so they’re backed up.
Keepsakes & Art
From there, you’ll have a chance to order print products through your online gallery at your own pace with a one day 20% discount. I’ll use the wall photos that you sent me before your session or wedding to include a few recommended wall designs in my email to you. You’ll be able to use my interactive designer to swap out images to decide what look you like the best, and then you’ll order the prints to frame yourself or order ready-to-hang professionally framed fine art prints.
If you order loose or mounted prints (lustre or fine art) or an individual framed print, you’ll have five days to request image swaps, retouching, and your frame style (if relevant) before the images go to print.
If you order a custom product like a frame collection or a folio box with multiple images, you’ll have 30 days to request your images, your cover options, and any retouching.
If you order an album, I’ll put together the initial design for you, and then you’ll have 30 days to request photo swaps through your online album proofer. Click here to see a sample album design to give you a feel for the process (your actual album proofer will have a button to request changes).
You’ll choose your cover fabric and any add-ons (cameo cutout with your favorite image or text), and once we have everything approved, it will head to print and be on its way to your home. And don’t worry—my digital style guide magazine will guide you through exactly how to style your album and other products into your home so it gets the styling it deserves.
