VIE Magazine Faux Wedding Photo Shoot

Planning a Photo Shoot

Inspiration and Preparation


You’re making a magazine or an ad campaign. You need a photo shoot that depicts a certain fashion, event, or lifestyle. Great, so what comes next?


At The Idea Boutique, we plan and execute photo shoots of all kinds for our clients and our own publications such as VIE Magazine and Connemara Life. The inspiration from a photo shoot can arise from different situations. Either it is a need to showcase products or places in our magazine, or a sudden burst of an idea that comes to fruition in the form of a photo shoot.


However the need arises, there is still planning involved in creating a top-notch shoot. Once the initial plan for the look and feel of the shoot is decided, that is when we turn to life for more ideas. We may see something in a store that would be perfect for the shoot, such as a piece of clothing or an accessory. We may scour the internet on sites such as Pinterest and Etsy to find hairstyles, poses, and outfit inspiration for our models. We may travel an area to scout out the perfect locations to capture the essence of the story we’re trying to tell with the shoot.


All of these things often come together in an inspiration board, so we can share them with our clients and get feedback from those who will be involved. A few of our most recent shoots have inspiration boards on Pinterest:
