Nashville Branding Photographer

Dolly DeLong Photography

I GET IT, YOU PROB USED YOUR SMART PHONE TO TAKE SOME PHOTOS OF YOURSELF TO QUICKLY PUT ON YOUR WEBSITE OR YOU HIRED SOMEONE FOR "REALLY CHEAP" TO TAKE SOME HEADSHOTS OF YOU TO QUICKLY PASTE ON YOUR WEBSITE AND NOW YOU ARE WONDERING WHY YOU STILL AREN'T ATTRACTING THE RIGHT CLIENTS? 

Because you want to have a great first impression with Potential clients when they visit your website and social media.

What if I said you already have AN INCREDIBLE BUSINESS TO OFFER TO CLIENTS, BUT THEY ARE NOT FINDING YOU BECAUSE YOU DO NOT HAVE A CONSISTENT PRESENCE ONLINE. 

being camera confident and ready because you've had the dolly delong branding experience and you are PUMPED about sharing your photos!

For me, photography is not a trend, I’m honestly at home with a camera in my hand. Working with small business owners is a joy because I have also experienced the ups and downs of owning a small business. Also, I want to help capture the message and voice behind your brand so that you attract the best clients! There are a lot of hobby photographers out there, but with ten years of experience and over 500 hours of professional training, you can rest at ease knowing the caliber of experience you will receive. 
Every part of what I do is intentional to ensure I can take the time to understand your vision and build trust. I believe your business is not your hobby or side hustle, and it needs to be treated professionally and it should have some high quality photos to reflect your business!

"She helped to make me feel more comfortable in front of the camera and ensured that I got plenty of good options for my website!" 

"Loved working with Dolly for my branding shoot! She helped to make me feel more comfortable in front of the camera and ensured that I got plenty of good options for my website updates! She blended both film and digital images perfectly! - Michelle, Of The Fields Floral Design

"Without Dolly's photos, this would not have been possible!"

"I've had SUCH great results! After working with Dolly I designed and launched my website and released my paid products and services. Within 24 hours of my first release, a low-cost PDF, I made MORE than enough money to cover the cost of the branding photos! They paid for themselves in just one day! In just two weeks with my website up I've had over 1,500 page views and 450 opt-ins for my lead magnet. Without Dolly's photos, this would not have been possible! If you're thinking of legitimizing your business through branding photos, stop waiting and commit!" 
- Mallory W., The Formula Mom

"To top that all, the photos are beautiful, she is so talented!"

"Dolly is so amazing to work with! She posed me in ways that made me feel beautiful and confident (two things I don't always feel!) I usually tend to be pretty awkward in front of the camera but she made it so comfortable and fun! To top that all, the photos are beautiful, she is so talented!!"

3 branding packages

yes. besides personal branding, i also AM A FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

do you photograph anything besides branding photography? 

totally! i frequently work at new venues, and i have all of the necessary insurance. i am always up for a new location! i just ask that you find out the rules of that location ahead of time (as far as photography goes, if they require a special permit, and if there are any additional fees to shoot there-it will be added to your final bill)

 i noticed you haven't done a branding session at a certain venue/location i'm interested in, is that okay?

I HAVE 3 DIFFERENT PACKAGES TO BEST FIT YOUR SPECIFIC SMALL BUSINESS. reach out here to inquire about my packages.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR A BRANDING SESSION? 

Common Qs and As:

hey Dolly, i have a question...

do you have liability insurance? 

YES! So let's say you are wanting to shoot at a venue/location which not only requires a permit but liability insurance for the photographer present, I can provide the insurance for you! 

WILL THERE BE A CONTRACT NEEDED FOR MY SESSION?
When do I need to sign the contract? 

Do you meet with clients beforehand? What is the protocall for client meetings?

yes. once you book me, i will draw up a unique contract that fits your session and i will not begin planning out your session until you: a) sign your contract
 b) fill out the questionnaire
& c) pay the deposit for your session. 

it depends. if you are from out of town, then we can have a Zoom session or a video call so i can get to know you and your business and what your vision is. if you are in town, you can simply fill out my branding questionnaire i will send off to you after you book me, and then we can meet up for coffee to discuss what your session will look like! 

Do you edit all the photographs? can we have the raw files?

do you travel for branding sessions?
Share all the deets with me!

oh my goodness, I am sold Dolly! How do I book with you? And how can I pay you? 

yes, i edit all the photographs, but no i will not deliver them in raw format to any clients. you are also hiring me for my editing style and trust that i will send you the best-curated images. note: i am not able to re-edit images after sending the final gallery. if you have any photoshop requests (e.g. a building exploding as you walk away), they are $50 per photo. i work with a third-party vendor to handle any special edits.

yes! i am happy to travel for your personal branding session! i only ask that you cover travel costs. if your business is in a different state, i would love to chat! please keep in mind, i have to plan everything in advance since i also work as a family photographer so I usually book out months in advance! Please note: you will need to research any city/state specific permits needed for your shoot!

Whoa! I am so honored you are pumped to work with me! So the first step for you to take would be to fill out my contact form so we can get the planning process started. You'll sign your contract, pay your deposit, and then your final bill will not be due until the DAY of your session! Everything is organized and I try to keep everything streamlined for you, the client!
