Danielle Poff + PV Takeover + Day 3

Stephen Wood

@daniellepoffphoto Takeover Day 3: This styled shoot was a vision I had for a while, so seeing it come to life was AMAZING! We did so many fun, unique decorations—like a macramé altar, a pool party wedding reception, a two-piece wedding dress and bright flowers. I love styled shoots for so many reasons! One, it allows you to connect with vendors. Making it in the wedding industry is part talent and part who you know! Vendors will be the ones suggesting you to their clients, posting your photos on social media and inviting you to wedding events, so it’s a good idea to connect with talented people. And secondly, styled shoots allow you shoot for yourself, instead of for a client. I know a lot of us get tired shooting the same type of wedding decor and the same type of wedding dresses, so at a styled shoot, I always make sure everything we do is unique and could serve as good inspiration for my future brides. I also use this time to try out new posing techniques, new lenses and new film stock. It's these type of shoots where you can really try new things and be bold!

@daniellepoffphoto Takeover Day 3: In-between moments usually turn out to be my favorite photos. Always keep your camera up and ready when doing a bride and groom’s portraits, so much interaction is happening that a great moment could occur at any time between your planned shots.

@daniellepoffphoto Takeover Day 3: I love helping my clients create their dream photoshoot, it always makes for better photos and happier clients. So when this couple said they wanted a lake engagement session on a boat, we made their vision a reality. I suggested Lake Del Valle in Livermore, California, along with a florist to decorate their boat. Communication is key to make sure what your clients envision is realistic, and it’s equally important to find vendors who can help bring their vision to life. Thank you for following along this week for my #pvtakeover! Some final words of advice to aspiring photographers: Hustle, hustle, hustle. Be nice to everyone, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. This will take you far and closer to your dreams!

Danielle Poff + PV Takeover + Day 1

Stephen Wood

Hey, I'm @daniellepoffphoto, and I'm so excited to be doing a #pvtakeover for the next few days! I've been photographing weddings for 7 years now and transitioned to being a hybrid shooter almost 3 years ago. My husband used to be my second shooter, and he really wanted to start shooting film, so a few years ago we bought a Contax645. I decided I needed a change in my business, so I started shooting film and fell in love with it! I love how helpful PhotoVision has been and I so appreciate their amazing customer service. First up for me, is a recent favorite from a ceremony at Presqu'ile Winery in Santa Maria, California. Walking shots on film can be tough, especially when the bride and groom are walking straight at you, so I will usually follow them backward and keep my focus locked, with my aperture at f/2.8 on my Zeiss lens.

@daniellepoffphoto Takeover Day 1: Portraits are my favorite thing about being a photographer, so an engagement session is my happy place. But I've learned over the years that people don't always know what photographs well, so educating your clients on a good color palette and talking over outfits is key! I always encourage my wedding couples to do an engagement session first as a good way for us all to get to know each other. Most of my communication is with the bride, so doing an engagement session gives me the opportunity to get to know the groom as well, and for him to feel comfortable around me before the big day. Plus, I really love connecting with my clients!

@daniellepoffphoto Takeover Day 1: I started teaching photography workshops 2 years ago. I learned I’d always loved helping my friends with their social media and teaching them to shoot film, so workshops were the next natural step for me. I love sharing my experiences and knowledge with other photographers, helping them to grow their business. Branding, social media, learning to find and see good light, how to build a successful business and client interaction are just a few of the topics we will cover at my next #daniellepoffworkshop, coming up on October 26 in Livermore, California! The overall goal of my workshop is for my attendees to walk away feeling more confident in themselves and having the tools they need to be successful. There are only a few spots left.
