COUPLES MODEL CALL OUT
Jeff Dietz Photography is a luxury portrait brand based in McKinney Texas and serving all of the Dallas Fort Worth area. We specialize in a celebrity magazine experience for the everyday person. You are here because you answered the posting for our model call out as we grow a new style of our portraits for couples. Congrats you are a finalist to receive a $500 gift certificate to come in and experience what we have to offer.
I decided to make this quick reference web page to answer a lot of the questions I have been getting all in one place. If I missed something please let me know. Of course we will be doing a pre-shoot consultation phone call with you if you are ready to proceed further to learn a lot more about you as a couple.
MAKE SURE TO FILL OUT THE FORM AT THE BOTTOM
What you need to do on your part
All of these steps below are a mandatory part of our process and helps insure that we create the most amazing photos and experience with you.
1. Discovery Process & Planning Phone Call
2. Photography Session - 1-2 hours
3. Wardrobe, Hair and Makeup
4. Attend The Premiere & Design Presentation of your photos
5. Tell others and spread the word
What is Included from Us?
1. $500 Gift Certificate
This gift certificate can be used towards your session fee and artwork purchase. It’s not redeemable for cash and must be used all in one session.
You will get my full professional experience and talent of over 13 years in the photography industry. My ultimate goal is for you to love everything you see and want to tell others about what we can do for them.
I am here to help you through the entire process to look and feel your best. I will help you with wardrobe selection, hair and makeup ideas (and if you want to use our pro team), posing at the shoot itself, as well as helping you with the selection if your finished artwork.
What are the costs?
$250 – Weekday
$300 – Weekend
This includes pre and post meetings, and the photo session time itself.
BOOKING FEE – $50
(refundable at the session, or apply towards artwork)
8×12 prints start at $150 each. We have wall art pieces starting at $500 and wall art & print collections starting at $900
There is no obligation to purchase beyond your gift certificate value if that is what you choose.
All details that are fit to print that I might have missed elsewhere.
1. What do I wear?
We will discuss this with you during your phone call but, I am hoping for everyone to have available one fancier outfit like a well-fitted suit and gown (like you might wear to a nice event or wedding or cocktail), as well as a more casual yet fashion-forward look. Vanity Fair is a great inspiration for the look we are going for. You are responsible for your own wardrobe and being able to provide something that fits what we are looking for.
2. What about hair and makeup? How much does your pro team cost?
Right now our professional hair and makeup team, who knows how to specifically look your best for a camera, is $125 for hair and makeup together per person. (normally just the ladies). I am also currently negotiating some special deals for these shoots, so ask me about that and it may be possible.
3. Do I have to buy anything?
No. there is absolutely no obligation to purchase anything above your gift certificate. The amount allows that you will be able to walk away with at least one piece of beautiful artwork for your time. The rest is up to you. Would I love for you to purchase more? Of course! This means you love what we created together.
4. If I do want to buy something, what do people normally spend?
This varies greatly of course person to person and what type of artwork you like. Some people spend several hundred and some several thousand. The best way to talk about this is in your pre-shoot phone call where I can give you more personal quotes on the items you love the most.
5. When are these shoots and where?
We will be photographing these over the next two weeks. So yes, that means act fast. They will all be at my home-based studio in McKinney Texas near the border of Frisco.
6. What artwork do you recommend?
Again this varies from person to person and your personal style. We will help you select the piece that will look the best in the area you wish to display it. I can help you more on our phone call. Personally, I love to see people get at least one wall art piece that becomes a cherished treasure proudly displayed in your homes, and then maybe something like an album or portrait box for additional photos.
7. Do you do couples boudoir?
Yes! What is this you ask? Well, it’s like a boudoir shoot (in our fashion like style), just with a couple. And it’s tons of fun. Ask me about adding this for a set during your session. 18 and older of course.
8. I have never been photographed before, is this a problem?
Zero problem. A large percentage of the people I photograph and you see on my website has never been photographed before.
9. Can the kids be in it?
Typically, yes. For this project shoot, however, I am accepting very few families as I am trying to make this series more about the couples and people celebrating and reconnecting with each other.
10. What’s the catch? Why are you doing this?
No catch. It’s just a way for me to find people to help with our new couples photos, help spread the word about what I do, and it gives you the opportunity to come in and experience it at no cost obligation to you. If you end up loving the photos and you want to purchase more, that is great as well!
11. What is your referral program, and what can I earn?
For each person you send our way who books with us, you will receive a credit that you can use towards a future photo shoot and artwork with us. Sometimes we give out cash and gifts as well.
12. Do you do online proofing?
We do not offer online proofing. We offer a more hands-on luxury experience and we simply can not do that and provide a higher level of customer service without it being in person at our photo premieres.
13. Does my partner need to be at the ordering appointment?
It is highly recommended that they do. In general, anyone that is going to be a decision maker in a purchase should be at the ordering session so we have no delays and can finish everything right then and there. Also, of course, we want your partner to experience the joy of seeing their photos for the first time as well. It really is one of the best parts!
14. Why is there a booking fee?
This just simply allows us to block off and reserve the time on our calendar. With how busy we are, we can’t have no shows in the schedule, and this helps prevent that. Again, this amount is refunded at your session, or you can apply it towards any artwork purchase
15. Do you retouch the photos?
Absolutely. Everyone needs a little retouching. Blemish removals and all that jazz. We do not do body morphing, however. That is what proper lighting and posing are all about.
16. So what do you do with the photos?
We use them in our promotional materials, website, facebook, and Instagram, in studio samples and other forms of marketing. For any shoots involving nudity that is normally reserved for showing people who are interested in booking a similar photoshoot.
A full model release is required to take part in these shoots as part of the deal.
