Looking to update your headshot or improve your branding material? Give us a call!
Here at Wave, we shoot headshots all day every day! Whether you are looking for seamless shots for your large corporation’s website or want to showcase the personalities at your small business, our photographers do it all! Have a certain vision in mind? Let’s talk about it! We will have everything set up ahead of time, so all you have to do is show up and we can start as soon as you’re ready.
“But I hate getting my picture taken!“
We hear this all the time, and we totally get it. Getting your picture taken can be very intimidating! What do I wear? How should I do my hair? It’s amazing how much you need to do to get ready for that brief 15-minute shoot! But that’s where we come in! Our expert photographers know all the right angles to make you look your absolute best – and they are just fun to work with! One of our favorite things to hear is, “Oh, that wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be!” (And we are proud to say that we hear it often!)
“I have no idea what to wear!“
Dressing “professionally” means something different to everyone, but it doesn’t have to be stuffy! Try to focus on finding something flattering that also shows off your personality! You can always incorporate your business colors or something to add an extra flair! Ladies, whether you are used to wearing makeup or not, try wearing a bit more for your photos. Just a little extra powder and some lipstick will go a long way! We recommend wearing dark colors- and try to stay away from loud patterns! You don’t want people to get distracted by the brightly patterned shirt- your face is your money maker here! Opting for something with a little more structure, like a blazer, is also a great choice, because it’s flattering for everyone!
“I have a really busy schedule. How long does a headshot session last?“
Let’s walk through the process! When you walk into our office, you will likely be greeted by 3-5 heads peeking around their computer screens with a chorus of “Hiiii how are you?” You’ll then be offered a cup of coffee, a soda, or even a little champagne if that helps take the edge off! We will show you where the bathrooms are so you can take one last look in the mirror before your photo. The actual photo process only takes about 15 minutes. It’s really that simple! If you have time, you can even proof your photos in person! Your photographer will run some light edits on your photos then guide you through this process. You will view your photos and select your 2 favorites before you go! If not, we can always send over the proofing gallery for you to view at home. After viewing the proofs, you can point out specific retouches you would like on your final images. Whether you proof in person or not, you should be in and out within an hour!
“I need new business cards … like yesterday!“
Well, you’re in luck! Our headshot sessions have our fastest turnaround time at just 24 hours for a single image. Once you receive your final images, you have the ability to download them and use them however you need!
“Where can I use my headshots?“
We understand that you might need your headshot for an assortment of different reasons. Whether it’s for your website, business cards, email signatures or book covers -you are free to use your images for all your marketing needs!
“I don’t want traditional headshots!“
All headshots are different! We have a variety of poses and ideas for professional or fun headshots. We have taken photos for realtors, book authors, and even pageant queens! You tell us what you are looking for, and we will help you bring it to life!
