Growth through

Creativity

Growth is never a result of tradition. It’s a stranger to convention, and whether it’s for your business or for yourself, it can only be achieved by trying something new, doing something differently, and learning to love the unexpected. The way I look at it, growth is the destination and creativity is the journey. And growth doesn’t happen on its own, so let’s do this!

HOW IT WORKS
01

SCHEDULE A MEETING

Let’s get to know each other! We can grab a coffee, jump on a video call, or talk on the phone. Make sure we are a good fit and discuss the possibilities of our collaboration!

02

SET THE MOOD

Time to work out the nitty-gritty details like time, location, models, pricing options, etc. I usually start with a mood board and/or shot list so have a clear vision. The project starts to come to life!

03

TIME TO CREATE

Once all the details are in place and everything is prepared, it's time for shoot day. This could be a mini 1-hour shoot or a full day, just depends on your project. But always a fun time!

04

BACK TO YOU

After we have captured some beautiful moments, I edit the photos to perfection. You’ll receive a digital gallery of the final photos, usually within 14 days, for you to share and use. High-five!

"She was just so incredibly easy to work with. I cannot recommend her enough. She was just absolutely wonderful. We were able to capture tons of amazing photos, like everything she was shooting I was just over the moon! ...

She literally took my vision and then elevated it with her own ideas, which is something I truly appreciate as an artist because she was very communicative, very easy to talk to. She grasped my vision right away and she was able to deliver something that was exceptional, great quality."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is your pricing?


Contact me with the details of your project and I'll send you pricing options best suited for you! Hiring me as your photographer is more than just someone pushing a button; it's an investment in you and your brand! Your investment goes toward all the planning and pre-shoot coffee dates, the day-of experience, the hours of me editing until 2 am, and the high-end equipment I use for your shoot. When it's all said and done, I know you'll be completely happy with your investment!




Are you willing to travel?


Hell-to-the-yes! Adventure is my middle name! If your story involves travel, I am on board. I've been around the world and back, yet I never seem to get enough. I currently work out of Phoenix, AZ and Minneapolis, MN at not additional cost. But depending on where you'd like to take me, there my be additional travel fees. Also, check out my Global Content Travel Program for more options!




What is your photography style like?


I am an editoral + lifestyle photographer. I photograph the everyday life in a beautiful and creative way. My work often portrays movement because even though a photograph is just one moment in time, humans are constantly in motion. My style gives you all the good vibes. Once in a while, I use studio light, but most of my work is done with the beautiful natural light provided to us. This style is perfect for artistic portraits and brand storytelling. Along with that, my edits are very natural. I'm that perfect sweet spot of rich and pure colors. The world is so beautiful and full of colors in every shade that I don't want to change it. I describe myself and my work as creative and adventurous. I have the ability to take the craziness we call life and turn it into a perfectly framed photograph that tells a story.




What services do you offer?


Photography | Creative Direction | Graphic Design My primary service (and love) is photography. However, through my life journey, I have developed plenty of other skills as well. All in all, you could call me a content creator. I have experience being an creative director which will always carry into anything I do (I can't help it haha). I actually went to school and first started working in advertising and marketing, which is why I focus my work on commercial and branding. I also have great graphic design skills which can really come in handy. Learn more here.




Do you offer a payment plan?


Sort of!​ I require 50% of the investment to be made when planning the shoot. This confirms your date and it will be added to my calendar! The remaining 50% is due within 15 days of me delivering the final photos. So right away, it's split into two payments, instead of one. However, I can be flexible, just ask! I also offer a Consistent Memebership Content Program for lowered rates when you work with me long term. Learn more on the Services page.




Can I reschedule my shoot?


Short answer - yes!​ Sometimes life doesn't go as planned - I get it! If something comes up and you need to reschedule, we can work around it. If you reach out to me two weeks prior to your scheduled shoot, there is no penalty. However, if it's less than a two-week notice, another down payment will be required to schedule another date. In either case, I unfortunately cannot guarantee how soon after we will be able to get something on the calendar, but we can still work something out! Sometimes Mother Nature also causes problems. In the event of some slight rain/snow, I usually suggest you don't reschedule! Sometimes the most fun photoshoots happen in the rain/snow :). Severe weather, on the other hand, will be rescheduled at no extra cost or a new location will be decided on.




How do you deliver photos?


I use an online digital gallery! Once your photos are all beautifully edited, I will email you a link to an online digital gallery. From there, you can download for print and web and share directly with friends and family! When working with brands, I may use a shared Dropbox link instead or whichever method is easiest for you and your team to work with!




I want to work with you, what do I do?


Yay! I can't wait! Contact me! The first step would be to reach out to me. I would suggest filling out the form on my contact page. The more details you add, the easier it will be to get started. You can also email me at hello@lindsayoien.com, find me on Instagram + Facebook, or shoot me a text at 651.756.9037.




Do you give RAW or unedited photos?


Not usually, but it can be requested. I get all the good stuff during our shoot, but then I make it really come to life through editing! I take pride in making the edits professional and consistent with the natural, creative, and artistic vibe while still being unique to you which is why I don't usually provide the RAW photos. Editing is where the magic happens! However, arrangements can be made to create an advanced collaborative space. I do charge extra for providing the RAW files, but just ask and we'll see what we can do.




What is your editing process like?


It's complicated. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It starts with sorting through every single photo...including the ones of my feet and that one where you sneezed haha. Once all the perfect photos have been selected, I adjust things like color, exposure, and contrast. From there, I look at every inch of every photo to clean up any flyaway hairs, minor acne or cuts, the lint on a shirt, etc! I don't do any altering to bodies and faces. All humans are beautiful no matter their shape, size, or color. Trust me! I also often let you pick out for favorite photos before I edit. This allows you to see what we captured and select the ones you feel are best. From there I go through the final editing process and send back.




Do you help with the planning of a shoot?


Absolutely! Depending on the size of your shoot, things can get complicated. My goal is to make it as easy as possible. My 'OCDness' and love for organizing comes in handy with these kinds of things! Being part director and part producer also helps with the creative side of planning and concepting a shoot!




I don't see my question.


No worries, just ask me directly! I don't bite! Send an email to hello@lindsayoien.com.
