We design custom experiences, working with you every step of the way to ensure the end result is nothing short of extraordinary.
Ralph Vandale believes that the process is just as important as the moment. As your photographer, whether that’s wedding photography, engagement photography, or senior portraits, we want you to be comfortable in knowing that you are getting the most creative and dramatic photos as possible.
We want the process for getting the best photos to be as memorable as the event itself. We take pride in making you comfortable, confident, and feel stress-free on your big day. See below for more information about our process.
01 – The Consultation
We use the first consultation as a way to learn more about you and what you are looking for in the perfect session, whether that’s weddings, engagements or senior portraits. This will also help you learn more about the Ralph Vandale Experience.
At the conclusion of the consultation, if all seems like a good fit, we will look at dates and booking information. Once you pay your session retainer fee, we will begin looking at styles, locations, and outfits. This planning process helps ensure that we get the most creative and perfect photos.
*session reservation fee of $299 due at time of booking for engagement and senior only. Does not include prints, products or digitals. 50% due to retain your wedding date. Balance must be paid 2 weeks before wedding.
02 – The Photoshoot
On the big day of the shoot, feel at ease, because all of the planning is done. Ralph Vandale is here to ensure a wonderful shoot and capture every moment or every pose in an elegant, creative or dramatic fashion. Ralph Vandale’s stress-free style, allows for you to enjoy the day or the session and know that your photography will come out great.
03 – The Reveal
We schedule The Reveal sometime between 1-3 weeks after your shoot. The Reveal is the day you have been looking forward to. You will get to see a slideshow of your amazing images, after which we will go through your print and production options and design a custom solution for you that fits exactly how you want.
The Reveal can take place where ever you are comfortable. Whether that’s in your home or at a nearby coffee shop.
During The Reveal you will be making your final decisions on what you would like to purchase and order. Don’t forget to invite all of the decision makers to be present for The Reveal.
