Tips for a Successful Photo Day

Follow these 5 helpful tips to ensure an easy and smooth photo session!

1. Reserve a Room

We bring the studio to you! Secure a 20'x18' room with a minimum ceiling height of 8'. Make sure two tables are available for our pose selection laptops. Reserve the room 1.5 hours before the scheduled time and 1 hour after the scheduled time for equipment set-up and breakdown.

2. Share the Signup

Share your unique URL from our easy to use online Planner with your members to encourage them to sign-up for the photo session. Make sure all members are signed-up to ensure everyone is included and represented on your composite. 

3. Your Online Account

Once you confirm your session date, you'll receive information on how to log into our website and create your account. Before your photo day, login to the Composite Planner, and complete the Contacts, Composite Details, and Roster sections. It is important that these sections are finished prior to your session, to ensure we can begin working on your composite quickly. 

After photography, your account manager will help finalize all of the details before proofing and printing. 

4. Request a Quote & Prepare Payment

We will send you a quote 2 weeks prior to your session. Didn't receive one or need more time to prepare? Request an itemized quote, so you can have payment ready for your photographer on picture day. Click here to request a quote. We accept check and credit/debit card payments at the photo session.  Prompt payment will ensure your composite can be delivered on time wihtout delay!

5. Attire

Plan ahead for what your group will be wearing. We provide drapes, pearls, and black suit jackets. If you would like to wear your own matching attire, make sure there is at least 3 outfits available for members to use at the photo session. TIP: If you are changing attire this year, it is important that every person is photographed in the new attire for a consistent look on the composite. More Attire Tips

Fraternity? If you choose to coordinate your ties, please provide at least 3 ties to help the session run smoothly.

Nursing or grad group? Graduation gowns and scrubs are a great option. Make sure everyone comes prepared on photo day. If you want to wear pins, make sure to have the school provide them.
