Making it Simple

When you scroll through Instagram, you may see little animated images and think,

"How did they do that?"

Let's create one together so you can be well on your way to creating memorable GIFs for your clients every time you shoot. Photoshop looks daunting and figuring out how to navigate it may seem stressful. I will walk you through it all step by step.

The guide itself is over 20 pages with over half being used to explain the specific steps! There are extra pages for Q&A and tips along the way to give you a well-rounded experience.

WHAT'S INSIDE?

- Things you should know before you even open Photoshop to create your GIF

- How to create your GIF within the photoshop platform (PDF version)

- The exact export settings I use for both social media and blog sharing

- The video walkthrough! Yes - you will get the 20+ page guide as well as a video walking you through the entire GIF process. Use this video as a resource when you need guidance or clarification on a specific step.

The photographer's ULTIMATE questionnaire to a successful Wedding/Elopement day.

My questionnaire holds everything A-Z that I believe you should be asking your wedding clients. Through all of the weddings I have photographed there has been a lot of trial and error. I have learned what to ask and what is too fluffy. You want a questionnaire to be meaningful and to the point. If you are stuck on what exactly to ask or you have a questionnaire but feel like it could be better,

here is the push you have been waiting for.

I LOVE Steph's guides. The final wedding questionnaire was just what I was hoping for: a super practical questionnaire that covers everything you could think of, and then some. And then on top of it, an email template (and help to help you make it your own!) AND some awesome tips to help the wedding day run smoothly. Seriously, so much amazing information all in one place. I can't want to get to send my updated questionnaire to my next wedding couple!

GIF GUIDE

Since having her guides my outlook in the photography world has brightened and I'm starting to seek new opportunities for my business that I never thought possible. There's so much more for me to learn, but now I am excited about that instead of feeling stuck where I am! So thank youuuu a million, Steph! Your joy for helping other photographers know they are capable of greatness means a lot to so many of us.

Wedding Questionnaire

The Final Questionnaire is something I personally send 2 months before a Wedding/Elopement to gather ALL DETAILS (Numbers, Locations, Timeline etc). The Get to Know Questionnaire I send a week after a client books with me to get to know them a bit better. I use this for Engagement Sessions and to dive into their relationship a bit more.

What is the difference between the Final Questionnaire and the Get to Know?

Is Timeline 101 only for beginners?

Does the GIF Guide have a video walkthrough?

How many questionnaires do you send within your Workflow?

Where can I get the Timeline Questionnaire?

Can I send questionnaires earlier than you do?

Big Heck No. I think no matter where you are in the business you can always learn from the next person. Take it from this review; "Even as someone who's shot 15 or so weddings, I found plenty of helpful tips and suggestions that definitely made it worth it. I love that Steph always goes above and beyond – not just the timeline questionnaire, but a walkthrough of the day, her favorite tips for spicing up wedding galleries, additional email templates, and a full 5 example wedding timelines."

Of course! Every business owner is going to do their business differently! You can send questionnaires earlier or later. I recommend sending the Final Wedding Questionnaire AT LEAST 2 months before to give your couples ample time to fill it out.
