The Valent Lau Photographic Experience is about you and your stories. The experience is fully guided. This makes it easy and effortless, eliminating stress and anxiety. Our clients use words such as ‘relaxing’ and ‘enjoyable’ to describe their journey with us.
Four Simple Steps to Celebrating Your Loved Ones!
Read more about each step below!
1. Getting to know you
The most important part of capturing natural and treasured moments is getting to know you. We want this to be more than a “look at the camera” session.
It’s a casual chat on the phone with each person involved in the experience to hear your story. We see what is important about your connection with those close to you. We learn about your journey, where you’ve been, where you’re headed.
You’ll be surprised how many things we rediscover that mean so much, that you may never have thought of mentioning. By the time you come to your photographic shoot, we’re friends. It’s a relaxed experience, many of our clients mention how enjoyable the whole process is!
2. Custom Photographic Session
Before our session, we send you tips and info on how to prepare, what to wear, and introduce you to our recommended hair and makeup artists. We answer any questions you have, and you feel confident and relaxed.
Now the fun starts! We guarantee there is no awkward posing or forced smiles. We gently guide you and let things happen naturally in a relaxed environment.
This is important because every time you look back at your photographs, you will remember if that expression is real.
Because we’ve taken the time to learn about you, we are able to anticipate when a special moment will happen. Whether it’s that gentle touch, or that fleeting glance, we are ready and waiting. Years from now, you will relive the genuine emotions and feelings again every time you look at your artwork.
3. Design Consultation
This is the most exciting part of the experience! After the session you have a break, maybe get something to eat.
Then the same afternoon you come back to the studio to see your photographs for the first time.
Together we go through the moments we’ve captured set to music. There will be laughter and tears.
We select your favorites and choose which photographs to purchase. All photographs are purchased individually. We customise them into contemporary art pieces that totally represent who you are, right now.
4. Show off your Artwork
We edit your photographs using our Fine Touch editing that shows you at your best. Our team of specially selected artisans create amazing art pieces from them.
When your handmade artwork comes back we inspect them carefully with white gloves, then schedule you to come back to the studio for the big reveal!
Seeing your artwork for the first time is a fantastic experience, and there are often tears involved! We encourage everyone to come together to see the reveal. Finally, your artwork is hung in your home, and each time you walk past it you will relive this time, the feelings, emotions, all of it, for years to come!
Everyone has a camera now. You no longer go to a studio because they have one and you don’t.
You can take hundreds of photos a day with your phone. It’s not about getting lots of photos. It’s not about getting photos slightly nicer than what your friend can do.
It’s about capturing your connection with your loved ones, in a way you can’t do yourself. Our specialty is working with people, getting you relaxed so you show your true personality. That way your partner looks at you, that way your child grins, we help you discover then freeze the precious moment.
It’s getting that one shot that is so authentic and genuine, you want to see it on the wall every day.
Isn’t your family worth it?
