Your Jourdan Couture Portrait Experience
Once your booking is confirmed, a consultation date is scheduled for us to meet up and design your dream shoot.
Preferably in person, but we can also do a Skype or telephone consultation for our out of County and international clients.
We’ll talk about
wardrobe, hair, makeup, posing, locations, and any other questions you may have.
View our galleries for ideas and add pins from our Pinterest boards to your own pinboard to share your ideas.
After your consultation, we will send you a tailored "Guide to your Jourdan Couture Portrait Experience"
The guide will include a consultation summary, advice on what to wear and the essential underpinnings required to ensure that your experience will simply be perfect.
Our portrait packages include hair + makeup by our professional stylists who will style you specifically for the camera.
Stylists will also stay for the duration of your shoot to make sure you look your best throughout.

There’s a vast array of photographers that “just do digitals” and you have to take care of the rest. Unfortunately, most of the products available to consumers aren’t the greatest quality. Something so personal cannot be measured by a “pick your budget” menu or discounts chasing approach.

There is a cost, but your exquisite albums and wall art will become increasingly priceless as the years pass by.
We will design an album or wall art collection that will truly exceed your expectations.
