Introducing the Trish Allison Flat Lay Course! Photographing your client’s details is an underrated and important element of wedding photography. Think about it, the details your clients are curating are carefully selected over months and months of planning. These elements are important to them! As a photographer, you have the opportunity to turn every detail into thoughtfully curated, unique, eye-catching pieces of art. They’ll be able to remember every element that they’ve planned through the photographs that live in their wedding album forever.
You may already understand the importance of these photos to your clients. But are you using this aspect of wedding photography as part of your sales pitch to those inquiring? What if I told you that using this often-overlooked part of photography as a differentiator in your business could book you more clients every year? Trust me when I tell you, it works!
Throughout the Trish Allison Flat Lay Course, I’ll be teaching you about my unique approach to photographing client’s details and how I’ve turned this into one of the most treasured elements of my client experience.
- Tangible tips on how to level-up your detail photos and elevate your portfolio
- Design instructions for intentional layouts
- Tips on how to use detail photos as a differentiator in your business, "wow" people with your unique client experience, and even to close the inquiry
- Confidence to master lighting, shadows and depth
- Tools for adding detail photos into your workflow
- Marketing strategies to help you stand out among competition
- Direct links to dozens of unique styling props
The course is made up of five key lessons: how to make detail photos a seamless part of your workflow, styling kit tour and how to select props with intention, lighting & composition, technique, and lastly, how to market detail photos as a differentiator to your brand. I also have four "watch me in action" styling videos, as well as bonus PDFs to print and pack in your camera bag with you and bring on-site to weddings.
Whether you're wanting to add detail photos into your existing workflow, or if you already photograph wedding details and want to level-up your technique to publishable work, this course is for you! The content in the videos is specifically directed towards photographers. However, the general lessons learned can also be applied to the work of planners, stationers, and florists.
My clients don’t really invest in their stationery, but I’d love to add more detail photos to my portfolio. Will you teach how to overcome this hurdle?
Adding detail photos into your marketing workflow is one of the most unique angles of this course. When you complete all the lessons, you’ll have a plan to make beautiful details a priority with your clientele.
Will you teach how to style invitations if you’re only given one or two pieces of paper rather than a full suite?
This is the question I get asked most frequently, so I have a whole “watch me style” video dedicated to this very subject. We will cover intentional layout techniques, strategic prop sourcing, and composition.
Will you dive into the best camera settings for flat lay photos?
Camera settings, lens suggestions, shooting technique. We definitely discuss it all! Afterall, what good is a photo of your client’s stationery as a keepsake if the words on them aren’t even legible?
Do you talk about lighting?
Absolutely! Light is an important component to the success of your final images. I’ll teach you how to find the best light, create the most natural shadows, and the trick to overcome on-site lighting challenges.
I get overwhelmed selecting a balanced layout, while incorporating all of the pieces my couples provide. Will I get tips on composition?
This course has an entire lesson dedicated to this very subject. You’ll also get to watch me style a variety of invitation suites and accessories and will feel confident doing so on your own by the end!
I want to build my styling kit but everything is so expensive. Will you cover what’s worth the investment and what’s not?
Yes, yes, yes!! We talk about selecting props with intention and in doing so, you’ll realize where your priorities lie in building your styling kit. I also give you links to a bunch of styling items, many of which are from Amazon, Etsy, and other affordable retailers!
I want to spend more time on these photos on a wedding day, but I always feel rushed. Do you have tips that you share in the course?
Detail photo workflow is so important! In the course, I discuss all my tips on how I photograph my flat lays in advance of my client’s weddings. But if this route isn’t for you, I also share the best communication tools you can use with your clients to make day-of shooting as seamless as possible.
