FAQ – What you need to know about the Styling and Photography process

We often get asked about how our process works and what we need from you to create your beautiful images, here we will answer those questions.  We aim to make the process as simple as possible so hopefully the below info will iron out any queries you may have.  If there is something that we have missed by all means get in touch and we will be happy to help.

How do I get started?

The best place to find all the initial information you need is our website, here you can view all our pricing, gallery, testimonials and loads more.  Once you have an idea of which base package you would like to go with flick us an email and we can kick things off.  We will need to get you booked in for a date that suits both of us then you will be asked to complete our client brief.  After that we iron out the finer details, you send your product and we get started with your images.

Do I need to make a booking?

Yes definitely!  We are often booked up weeks in advance so if you need your images for a specific date or event then it is best to get in early to avoid disappointment and wait times.  It is not often that we have the capacity to be able to complete work at short notice so it is always a good idea to book your spot. Please also be aware that if you need to change your booking date at the last minute, we may not be able to accommodate you with a new date immediately.

We want to leave the concept creation for this shoot up to Revised Edition, is that ok?

Yes of course!  We love to create concepts but we do need some help from you.  Any information you can give us in the brief will give us something to go on.  Inspiration images are super helpful and since we are visual people this gives us a visual idea of your direction. We are happy to help choose colour palettes, props and all the other details that go into creating your images.

I am not based in Wellington; can we still work together?

Yes of course, we can work with products from any location.  If you can send them, we can style them. We do ask that products be delivered at least a week before the shoot date and if you need them returned that you include either a return freight label or arrange for collection once we have everything packed up.

Will you travel to my place of work for a shoot?

We are more than happy to travel to your location if that is easier for you.  If this is something that you would like to do please get in touch so we can discuss the details.  We would prefer to visit the location prior to the shoot and have worked with you to create a shot list for the day.  Hourly rates and travel costs apply.

What is the cost of your product styling service?

Our base pricing is listed on our website on the services page (here) so you know the cost before you commit.  If you require any food styling services or want us to come to you it is a good idea that you get in touch to discuss total costs first.

Does the pricing on your website include GST?

No, all the pricing listed on our website is exclusive of GST and this will be added to your final invoice.

Are props included in the price and if not how much extra will I be charged?

I have a petty good collection of props that I update on a regular basis so generally the package price does include the use of these props.  If you require something more specific for your images that I don’t have then I can purchase it and add the cost to your final invoice.  If you have items that you would like included in the images then you are also welcome to send those for us to use.  Extra costs do apply when I need to purchase fresh flowers (which is most of the time) or food items/ingredients, paint custom backdrops or if your images require set building or extensive styling.  I am happy to give you an estimate for these costs before I get started if your shoot requires a lot of these items. 

How long before I receive my images?

This depends on how many images you are booked in for but as a general rule I work to the following time frames:

10 images:          3 days

25 images:          5 days

50 images:          8 days

Do I have to tag Revised Edition in the images that I post on social media?

No this is not necessary; the images are yours to use as you please.  If you would like to share the love and tag us then of course we would appreciate that very much but it is totally up to you.

Have we missed anything?  If you have a burning question let us know so we can update this blog.  I hope this info has been helpful.
