What to expect from your shoot?
At Maraschino Photography we have three main aims:
1.Create some fantastic images with you and your family looking your absolute best;
2.Produce high quality presentations of these images, suited to your home and tailored to your requirements;
3.Make it fun.
We love to help our clients to look and feel amazing. You’re going to look your best if you’re finding your time with us fun and easy going. So you’ll find the welcome warm, the refreshments chilled and the facilities luxurious in the Maraschino studio!
This quick guide lets you know what to expect from your time with us.
When you arrive at our studio for your portrait shoot we’ll let you settle in and enjoy some refreshments while we introduce ourselves and show you around. We will then have a recap of your pre-shoot consultation, confirming our understanding of what you’d like us to create for you. Once we’ve confirmed your requirements with you we’ll explain how we’re going to get the results you want.
Our studio is comfortable – it ought to be, it’s in our home. We turned what was a rather cavernous lounge into a beautiful and well-equipped portrait studio. A comfy sofa with lots of plumped-up cushions helps our clients settle right in, relax and feel at home.
This is the fun part, your personal shoot with a professional photographer in our beautiful, comfortable studio.
We will have discussed with you, in advance of your studio session, what to wear and bring with you on the day. You will have the opportunity to change outfits, so get creative and start thinking of the looks you want!
If you’d like to book a location shoot then we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements with you. Some locations present a wider array of opportunities than the controlled environment of a studio. Therefore, we allow up to three hours for a location shoot, so that we can really make the most of it.
This gives us enough time to get to know you and the other members of your party and make sure that everybody is ready for the shoot to begin. We’ll also explore the location and make sure that we maximise the opportunities for great backdrops and set up any specialised equipment or lighting as needed.
Based in South East London, we offer our location services for an additional fee of £100 extra to the standard session price anywhere within the M25 or Kent. We will be happy to provide a quote for locations further afield, based on additional travelling time. Locations in excess of 200 miles from the studio will incur accommodation costs.
If you’d like to splash out a little, and have a make-over as part of your portrait experience, then we can organise a make-up artist and/or hairdresser for you. It’ll certainly make you feel like a million dollars! You will need to add half an hour for hair and another hour for make-up onto the timings of your shoot. In addition, a personal stylist can be organised to go shopping with you in advance of your portrait session, to advise you on what to wear and make sure your look is bang up to date for the big day. If you are interested in any of these services then please ask us for prices, and ensure that you talk to us about these services when you book.
