Following on from parts one and two , I want to conclude this series with one last post on what happens after the engagement shoot. It's an area that doesn't get touched upon much, but as someone that always wants to set expectations with my clients, it is really important to me.
So we've had an awesome engagement shoot and you guys are excited to see your photographs. Well you don't have to wait too long as your engagement photographs will be available within 7 business days of the shoot day.
There's nothing worse than hearing friends and colleagues say that they've waited weeks or even months for their professional images and so I'm proud that I am able to deliver within this time frame.
When it comes to enjoying your images, my clients are sent a link to their own private online gallery where they can view all their engagement photographs. For a normal engagement session I look to present around 20 finished photographs to enjoy. The gallery is active online for one year from delivery and so gives you ample time to enjoy your photographs and make your selections for any products you wish to invest in.
The gallery also has a built in shopping cart facility, to allow yourselves and your loved ones to purchase gift prints & a set digital downloads, should they wish to do so.
On delivery, I also offer clients a special, limited-time 'Friends & Family' voucher code to be used within the first days of delivery, where a significant saving can be made on products.
Many couples choose to use their engagement images to create some wonderful gifts and products for the wedding day itself. I find the most popular are:
A lovely way to use your engagement portraits is to create beautiful, gift prints in either 6x4, 5x7 or 10x8 sizes, for your parents, grandparents and loved ones, beautifully gift wrapped in a presentation box and read to give. These are great gifts to for family members during the speeches or for special birthday and Christmas gifts, and can be ordered directly from your engagement gallery.
The Digital Engagement Images
You also have the opportunity to purchase a full set of all the digital images from your engagement shoot. On purchase, you will have the facility to download the image files from your online gallery with the permission to print for your own personal use. This download gallery is hosted for one year from purchase. As an optional extra, you also have the opportunity to purchase a USB drive copy of your digital images, alongside your download facility.
If you would love to know more about these, or indeed any other product options you particularly had in mind, just let me know and we can chat, personally.
I hope you've enjoyed this series on engagement shoots and it has given you a little more insight into how I work. As always, if you like what you have read here and you would like to know more about my wedding photography services please get in touch.
