the shoot & swoon process

Photography is more than just capturing an image; it's about telling a story, evoking emotions, and creating a connection with the audience.

Shoot Day

Product only - Courier

Yay! It's time to start creating your content. Our turn around time is pretty fast, as we know you can wait to see your images.

If we are shooting your product in our home studios, then you can arrange for courier at this point.

Share your new content

Final Edit

We will put the Shoot and Swoon finishing touch to your images, and when complete you will be sent a on-line gallery to download your images. Quick and fast so you can start using your images straight away.

It's time to share your new images! We can't wait to see what you do with them!


Can the client be present on the shoot?


Absolutely, if you have booked a half day or full day shoot on location then we welcome your head of social or marketing along. However for smaller shoots where we are capturing product only, we are unable to accomodate the client on site as we shoot these products in our home studio.

How long do we have to wait to get our full gallery of images?


For the majority of shoots we can return photos within 48 hours, for longer or more detailed shoots this may be longer. Video takes much longer to edit, so again depending on the complexity of the shoot, this will on average be available 1 week after the shoot.

Can we use the content overseas? What are your licensing restrictions?


Auckland and queenstown commercial photo and video

We hate complicated pricing structures, so all our packages include full license rights, this means you don't have a time limit or location restriction and can use the images for as long as you wish.


Can you book models, hair/make up, and locations for us?

It can be very time consuming sourcing the perfect location or model for your shoot, so we are happy to step in and help. We do charge an hourly rate of $75+GST and we can advise the approx cost based upon the complexity of your shoots needs. Please note any contracts, invoicing or payments are made directly with the vendor. We will be the go between, sourcing out the best options, present them to you, confirm pricing , book, and communicate timelines.

"I absolutely love working with Emma and Shoot & Swoon. It's always an easy process and a fun day, the photos are beautiful and fit really well with our business aesthetic, and even when it's madness with babies all around, she's patient and manages to get those smiles. 100% recommend!"
