brand & styled shoot process
MAKE IT OFFICIAL
To kick things off you’ll need to complete our booking form. It’s designed to gather all the basic details we need to get your plans started. We’ll review your booking request, and assuming we’re perfect for you, we’ll be in touch via email to confirm along with a few key deadlines.
Once you’ve confirmed we’re good to go, we’ll send over your contract and an invoice for your deposit. You’ll need to make payment and return your contract by a certain date to secure your booking.
WELCOME TO WITH AKILAH & CO
As soon as you’re officially booked in, you’ll receive a personal welcome pack containing everything you need to complete the initial stages of your service.
You’ll also receive access to a shared Google Drive so everything is in one place as well as using it to submit any info we need.
Before we begin, theres a quick questionnaire to complete, so make a note of your tasks and any relevant deadlines. We will then check-in to schedule a consultation.
Next up, you’ll need to give us access to your moodboards or Pinterest boards to ensure we understand you and your visions better.
The first call will last around an hour so please do use this opportunity to ask an questions you may have.
We’ll chat about everything from understanding your ideal budget to the pretty details such as stationery, florals and candles. Then the work begins and sessions will be booked by you monthly.
PICKING YOUR TEAM
Within 2-4 weeks of our first call, our team will be pulling together the finest supplier directory for your shoot.
Each supplier category will have a minimum of 2 choices for you to indulge and choose from.
CREATING YOUR PLAN
Once all supplier details are in place and we are around the 14 day countdown, and you’re bursting with excitement and pride, you’ll be issued your final invoice.
We will have a scheduled call around here too, this will be to finalise all plans ready to send to suppliers.
SHOOT DAY DETAILS
We are basically there! We done it! Just one or two more things to do. Communicate with all suppliers chosen, pay all invoice balances, and confirm the timeline.
Our team will reach out and send a beautifully crafted document to everyone involved around 1 week out. This gives your suppliers the chance to ask any questions they may have. We change them, you relax!
If you have booked shoot day coordination we will be there for you ensuring the timeline is running smooth and suppliers are looked after...including you.
