Detroit Branding Sessions for musician husband and wife duo piano

As a Michigan brand photographer, I specialize in creating custom branding sessions for wedding professionals and creatives. My approach combines creative vision, technical expertise, and a deep understanding of brand storytelling. This produces images that resonate with your target audience. Recently, I worked with Devoted Things LLC, a husband and wife duo, to capture their brand’s story. Here’s a glimpse into my styled brand session approach and how it can elevate your brand through Metro Detroit branding sessions.

Metro Detroit Branding Sessions

Struggling to make your brand stand out? Many luxury wedding professionals and creatives face issues with inconsistent visuals and unclear brand identity. When Vanessa and Aaron from Devoted Things reached out about launching their new brand, I was excited. Their brand advocates for other creatives’ journeys. I was eager to dive in and tell their story.

Brand Discovery and Clarity Call

The first step in my process is understanding your brand. I begin with a thorough discovery session where we discuss your brand’s story, values, and goals. This helps me create a tailored photography plan that aligns with your vision. 

For Devoted Things LLC, the focus was on capturing the heartfelt connection and dedication behind each single release. This deep conversation really helped us to develop a brand strategy that aligns with their values and message. The best part of this process is to plan the brand session through the lens of our shared artistic vision.

Brand Session Concept Development

Next, based on our clarity call, I develop a storyboard that reflects your brand’s identity. This process involves translating our discussion into a visual plan that captures the essence of your brand. 

For example, during Devoted Things’ first brand session, we photographed the contents for their three songs: “Coming Home 2 You,” “If We Move,” and “Settle Down.” I created story narratives with three chosen adjectives for each song. This approach is similar to writing a movie script, where each scene and element is carefully planned to convey a specific mood and message.

For “Coming Home 2 You,” we focused on themes of warmth, comfort, and nostalgia. The scenes were set in cozy, inviting spaces that highlighted the intimate connection between the products and the emotions they evoke.

For “If We Move,” the focus shifted to themes of adventure, excitement, and possibility. We chose dynamic settings that conveyed movement and change, reflecting the energy and anticipation of new beginnings.

For “Settle Down,” the narrative centered around themes of tranquility, stability, and home. The images captured serene environments that showcased the beauty of finding peace and contentment in one’s surroundings.

This detailed concept development ensures that each image looks beautiful and tells a story that resonates with your audience. By aligning visual elements with your brand’s core values and message, we create a cohesive and compelling narrative that enhances your brand identity.

Styled Brand Session: Styling and Preparation

Attention to detail is key in creating a cohesive and polished look for your brand session. I assist with styling, ensuring that every element complements your brand’s aesthetic. This includes wardrobe suggestions, prop selection, and even color coordination. For Devoted Things LLC, we incorporated elements like rustic furniture and soft, natural fabrics to create a warm, inviting atmosphere. 

Brand Session Location

Choosing the right location is crucial in bringing your brand story to life. It provides the context and atmosphere that enhance the visual storytelling. Whether it’s an urban studio or a natural outdoor setting, the location will be chosen to align seamlessly with your brand’s identity and the story we want to tell.

For Devoted Things’ second brand session, we selected StudioStudio in Ann Arbor. As a Metro Detroit-based photographer, I have extensive knowledge of the area’s best locations for branding sessions. From urban settings to natural landscapes, I can recommend the perfect backdrop that aligns with your brand’s aesthetic.

Post-Production and Delivery

After the session, I intentionally edit and curate the best images to ensure they meet the highest standards of quality. Each photo is enhanced to highlight the key aspects of your brand. You’ll receive a collection of images that can be used across all your marketing channels. Check out how Devoted Things LLC used their brand photos on their website!

It was a collaborative process where we worked hand-in-hand to showcase their brand, voice, and vision. The result felt true to them and resonated with their audience.
