You should have a shot list for your photo session

Jul 24, 2019

Aris Affairs Photography can help you capture all the right memories at your Prescott photo session.

A photographer may be able to make a photo session seem like a carefree exercise, but there is a lot of work that goes into planning that experience. The best way to make sure you get everything you want from a photo session is to have a shot list and share it with your photographer. Aris Affairs Photography would like to give you some ideas for your shot list before your Prescott photo session.

Must Haves
These would be the shots that are necessary to tell the story. A family shoot would probably need one shot with the whole family, for instance. A wedding will need one of the first kiss. Make sure to write down these shots so your photographer will make sure to get them all.

Details 
The detail shots aren’t necessary for the story, but they help to flesh it out and spark memories. A shot of the centerpieces or the tennis shoes won’t be missed if they aren’t in the album, but having them makes the album so much better. You may also include close-ups of people or wide-angle shots of the whole event in this category.

Extras
These are exactly what the name implies. You may not know if Uncle Harry will start dancing, but if it happens, you’ll want the photographer to know it should be captured. Share with your photographer the kinds of photos you’d like if conditions allow for it. This will help direct them on where to be looking for the perfect shot.

Aris Affairs Photography wants you to have all the special photos of your event that you were hoping for. Having a shot list makes this possible. To schedule your photo session in Prescott, call Aris Affairs Photography at 928-642-4049.
