I rarely do reviews, but these guys more than deserve one! I am also extremely blunt and honest, so take that for what you will.
I shot with Theo (pronounced Teo) a week ago and both he and Juliet were truly AMAZING to shoot with! Yes they are more expensive than other headshot photographers, hence why I have shot with 6 other photographers in town (including two of the other most known ones) before deciding to pony up the money and shoot with the team that can command that kind of price, I figured they had to be doing something right. Well all I can tell you is that you get your monies worth and then some!
Juliet is the most in-depth and thorough stylist and make-up artist, she sits there throughout the entire shoot and will pause the shoot to fix or re-arrange clothes/ any stray hairs/ apply powder etc.
She is direct and no-nonsense, if she thinks your hair style or cut isn’t doing you any favors she will let you know and recommend a salon to you, she doesn’t tell you, you have to use that salon, she didn’t mention me colouring my hair and I believe she is recommending them because due to being a client herself she likes their work. One of the things she didn’t like about all my previous headshots was my hair which I agreed with her on and was happy to go to the salon she recommended (Benjamin Salon) and had a great cut from stylist, Carla. I have already scheduled my next hair cut with them because they did a much better job than my previous stylist.
Juliet doesn’t believe in sugar coating things, if she feels you could do something different to make hers, Theo’s and your resulting product even better she will tell you, I would much rather have that any day than someone who pays me lip-service and whose photos don’t result in any changes career-wise.
She was also very involved from the start, she spent time looking through a lot of previous photographs from those that I sent to her, to scanning through all my photos on imdb and even asking for selfies to make sure she knew exactly what looks she felt I should be doing and making suggestions for wardrobe for each, there is no guess work in working with them, they have been in business for over 20 years, they know what works and they both have a brilliant eye.
The actual shoot was very light-hearted with lots of chatting about life and lots of laughter, the dynamic between the two of them makes you smile and the whole shoot felt very effortless.
I got my shots back tonight and after clicking through a few burst into tears! I FINALLY have shots that really, truly reflect how I know I look! Even if none of the above was provided this would be worth every cent!
Lovely, down-to-earth people who are incredible at their jobs, I am so happy I made the investment to shoot with them, don’t do what I did and waste three years shooting with other people, go and shoot with Theo and Juliet!
