One of the most important parts of any wedding or portrait shoot is the pre-session consultation. During the pre-session consultation we meet ideally in person, but if the client lives far away via skype or facetime, to discuss the session or wedding. By meeting prior and going thru my detailed worksheets both the client and I get on the same page. I figure out what they are looking for and how we can achieve it. This helps prevent many issues from happening during the shoot or wedding. Nearly any shoot I have where issues have arised it was due to a lack of planning or lack of communication. This is why I always do a consultation before a shoot or wedding.
