An Eventful Session
A weekend of cake making & decorating (not the norm), capturing wedding images for friends and clients (hopefully soon to be the norm), and spending time with family (every day, day in and day out).
After a whirlwind mix of working, laughing, relaxing, and working some more, the wonderful chaos continues. The mind of the creative is often never-ceasing, always turning with new ideas, things to try, and then of course, the absolute must-get-dones.
The After Party…
The photograher’s work does not end after the session or event. No, for us the work has only just begun, as we go in to cull through each image, carefully editing and processing them, giving each special attention to provide you with the best possible finished product.
We often make light of this work, but consider that normal portrait sessions can turn out up to 300 images depending on session length and your photographer, of which you will only receive between 10 & 50. Beyond that, large events and weddings should produce 50-100 images per hour, while you will typically receive an album or disc of 200-500. That is a lot of time pouring into making sure each image is carefully cropped, exposure (lighting) is good, colors are nice, and any unwanted blemishes or distractions are edited out or toned down. And don’t forget going over the proofs with you, and ordering any prints, canvases, and photo books (if available and offered)! And then there is the presentation boxes that so many offer, all of the correspondence back & forth.
Like most photographers and service providers, Leslie Byrd Photography works hard to go the extra mile and provide excellent service. At the top of my mental to-do list, something I never have to write down, is two things I try my best to run my new business by:
Having a photographer who believes you are beautiful, results in your having images that are beautiful.
Treat everyone how you would like to be treated by others.
I firmly believe we all have beauty in us, and that we all deserve to be treated with that same beauty. Whether it is a special note or gift in your presentation package, or helping a bride to fasten on her pearls before a wedding, Leslie Byrd Photography is all about you.
