Post photoshoot – What happens next?
First, how epic was our shoot? I am so happy that you got to experience a little slice of my backyard with me and your love. Over here at KCB Photography I want to make sure you get the most out of your shoot during and after. So, here is a little run down of what to do after you have received your photographs back from me.
To make ultimate use of your photos, you are going to want to print them out, create a photo album or post them to social media and show off about your beautiful trip to Queenstown.
When printing your work, be sure to check the paper quality and finish. Prints normally come in one of two finishes, matte and gloss. My preference is always gloss, especially if you have poppy colours in your image, however if you are a matte kinda gal, go for it. If it is a printer you have never used before you should be able to ask for a test print, that way you can check the quality before committing to a full print set.
Photo album are ever popular these days and so easy to order. One of my preferred sites is called Momento. Basically, you can choose the style of album and then drop and drag the photos into place in the exact order you want. This gives you total creative control, allowing you to hero your fave shots and squeeze as much as that love story onto paper as possible. It can take as little as an hour to curate the album you want and then you will always have something to keep, remembering your special time away. Photo books also make great coffee table books and look beautiful all stacked up together.
If you are looking to frame your prints for home, then let me give you a top tip. It is always easier to go frame shopping first, find what you want in looks and size then order your print to fit. I have been caught out many a time in the past with ordering artwork and never being able to frame it. For those of us who live in New Zealand some of my favourite frame shops are Ikea, Kmart and Briscoes. Generally, photographs when mounted on the wall look better with an in-frame mount, so consider this in your frame buying process, a white mount inside the frame can really make your artwork stand out. In this day and age if we don’t post to social media did it really happen? I’m kidding and I am all for posting away on multiple platforms, after all you wouldn’t want to keep all those beautiful shots just to yourself now, would you? Where ever you are posting, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest etc all I ask is that you tag me @katecraigbrown_photography, it’s a great way for me to network in your circles and hopefully provide some ever-lasting memories to someone you may know. If you loved your session and the photographs you received, then a little review would also be pretty awesome. If you are a Gmail account holder feel free to post a Google review about what you loved the best about our shoot & time together, that would make me so happy. If you don’t have Gmail, then Facebook is also an awesome way to spread the love.
I will finish with a big, huge thank you for booking a photo session with me, you guys rock! I hope to see you back in Queenstown one day soon X
