At Nostalgia Media, we believe that no two businesses are alike, and your branding photography shouldn't be either. Our approach goes beyond the ordinary—it's all about tailoring each branding shoot to fit you and your unique vision. Imagine a photography experience where every detail reflects your brand's personality. We don't settle for a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we kick off our process with a detailed questionnaire, dive into a strategy session, and equip you with a custom PDF planning guide. Today, we are going to explore our shoot with Taylor McAllister and how we tailored her shoot to fit her personality and branding!
Every journey into customized branding photography begins with understanding your business at its core. We kick off the process with a comprehensive questionnaire, delving into the essence of your brand, your goals, and the unique elements that make your business stand out. This isn't just about capturing images; it's about capturing the soul of your brand. These questions help us get introduced to who you are as a person!
2. Strategy Meeting
Following the questionnaire, we take a deep dive into a strategy meeting. When you book a branding session with us, we NEVER just show up and shoot. This isn't your standard run-of-the-mill session—it's an immersive conversation where we get to know you, your business, and your vision on a profound level. A lot of the time our clients are like, "woah these are some deep questions. I feel like I am being interviewed!" We want to understand the heartbeat of your brand, ensuring that every photograph resonates with your story and values.
During our strategy meeting with Taylor, we learned that she wanted to feature bright colors, happiness, and disco balls! Disco balls are a staple in her branding, but she wanted a new way to feature them without feeling cheesy. So, we came up with the idea of creating a backdrop and hanging disco balls in front of it and we also wanted to choose a variety of locations that fit her bright and happy brand aesthetic.
3. Choosing Props For your Shoot
For those looking to add an extra touch of flair to their branding photos, we offer assistance in procuring props or suggest getting them from Onyx and Opal Events—an exclusive event and set stylist. Whether it's dazzling disco balls, unique backdrops, or bespoke elements that align with your brand, props elevate your photoshoot to a whole new level, creating an unforgettable visual experience.
Taylor features disco balls throughout her branding and wanted to incorporate them in her shoot, so instead of purchasing disco balls, we rented them from Onyx and Opal! They do event styling and would love to help you design a set for your shoot as well! In addition to the disco balls, we wanted to feature props like coffee and a real estate sign to continue to showcase her drink of choice and job! It is important to bring your personality into your shoot.
4. Choosing Outfits and Locations
The devil is in the details, and we leave no stone unturned. From helping you curate the perfect wardrobe that aligns with your brand's personality to selecting locations that seamlessly complement your vision, we're with you every step of the way. Me and Taylpr texted back and forth multiple times deciding on the perfect outfits for her shoot. And I helped book a house at the Barn at Bennett Flats for one of her locations.
Our commitment is to make your branding shoot an authentic reflection of your business. By embracing the unique elements that define you, we ensure that every photograph tells a story that's distinctly yours. We also help you get prepped for the shoot with our personal Branding Shoot Guide! It breaks up your shoot into location and lists out the outfits, props, and shots for that location. It's a game changer! This is more than just photography; it's a collaborative journey to bring your brand to life in the most personalized and impactful way possible.
