If you’ve been following along on social media, you may have seen that I have been shooting a lot of Branding Sessions over the last year.  While these types of shoots have been a natural progression for my business, I have to thank the team over at Tailor & Table for starting it all.

I have worked with Natalia numerous times over the years, from shooting her wedding to watching her develop her event design business with co-founder Bart and executing numerous editorial shoots with them.  We had an idea for a shoot that morphed into more of a marketing-style shoot to capture images for their new website & branding that they were developing.

This is where my Branding Session idea was born.  I photographed Natalia & Bart creating floral arrangements, setting up decor and doing design work as well as lifestyle portraits of them.  Imagery of their final creations as well as artistic photos for their social media content were also part of the shoot.

We spent some time prior to the shoot discussing their brand, colors and how they want their clients to perceive them.  In the end, we were able to create imagery that incorporated those elements from their wardrobe selection down to the smallest details.

Taking your business to the next level? Want to streamline the look of your website, branding imagery and social media so that your imagery is consistent? Want to attract your ideal client?

Consistency is the key. Having images that reflect you and your brand will help elevate your business.

These sessions are perfect for small businesses, creatives, artists, florists, chefs, mixologists, bloggers, wedding professionals and venues, hotels, the list goes on.

If you are a creative you can’t afford not to have high-end imagery that reflects your brand and style. Show your potential clients YOU, how you work, what you create and what your team can offer.

GALLERIES:

I have separated my galleries of work into Engagements, Weddings, Weekend Events (Rehearsal Dinners, Welcome Parties, Pool Parties), Portraits, Boudoir & Love Shoots.  Each one of those has multiple weddings or sessions that you can see and showcases a wide variety of wedding styles.

GALLERY:

Each individual gallery is laid out in collage-form.  I wanted the design to be unique, and showcase multiple images at a time.  The images change randomly and you can see a wedding or shoot from beginning to end.  There’s also an option to show a full-screen gallery of the particular gallery at the bottom if you’d like to see the images larger.

LIFESTYLE + TRAVEL:

I’m so excited to finally have my lifestyle and travel work as a part of my site as well as work that I am offering clients.  I have always enjoyed traveling and taking photos wherever I go.  I have a very large collection of travel work and have also had the opportunity to write articles and have my work featured on multiple publications.  I am available for assignment stories for publications, hotels, travel industry companies as well as tourism boards so please contact me if you’d like to feature my work or hire me to create imagery for you.

It’s quite a busy summer here at Melissa Schollaert Photography, lots of beautiful weddings, travel and shoots happening.  You may have seen below many sneak peeks at recent weddings, be sure to check out my latest work here on the blog.  In addition to normal business, I’ve also been working on a few other projects and wanted to post an update here for everyone.

I’ve been working on updating my online presence with a new blog design and website this year.  The new blog design was already rolled out earlier this year.  My new website is finished with the design process and now all that remains is to fill it with lots of new and fresh images in all the galleries.  I can’t wait for everyone to see the new site, I’m really excited about it!  It’s fresh, clean and something a little different.  Look for that coming soon, and an announcement will be made here on the Blog, and on Facebook and Instagram.

One part of updating my online presence was getting new headshots taken!  And, I couldn’t think of a better place for a destination wedding photographer to get their headshots done than in beautiful Italy!  Earlier this spring I traveled there and the lovely Leti e Viola Fotografia photographed me in one of my favorite seaside towns along the Italian Riviera.  It’s a special place, and also very near where I photographed my first ever wedding in Italy years and years ago.  I thought it would be the perfect location for this jetsetting girl, and I love how the photos turned out.  You’ll get to see many more from this session on the new website, but for now I wanted to post one of my favorites.
