Wake up early, grab a cup of joe, get yourself, your son or your daughter, or everyone and anyone all gussied (old school term for looking sharp) up the way you want to look and prepare to have your picture taken by the metro-east's premier photography duo, When We Played - Premier Photography.

What Exactly Is An Open Shoot?

An open shoot allows for you to have your picture taken without all the worry of planning, prepping and major pocket book heartache. You simply arrive during the time frame of one of the open shoots, dressed how YOU want, with any prop YOU want to be photographed with if you want, and then we will do the rest. It's relaxed, it's fun, it's fast, and we guarantee you will be amazed at the end results.

Open shoots are for any person wanting to get their picture taken. No duo's or group photo's as those are time extensive.

Please know we will take a handful of photo's of you in a couple of different poses, in a fantastic outdoor setting that allows for beautiful, diffused soft lighting to capture you at your very best.

Bring a smile, heck, bring a smirk if that is you. :) We want you to look and feel great about these keepsake photo's.

  • No alcohol, drugs allowed.
  • We will have some additional props on hand if you would like to be photographed with one or two of them, though it is not required.
  • If by chance weather would be an issue we will reschedule for another day.
  • If you sign up early online for an open shoot and for some reason are unable to make it the day of the shoot, there is no penalty, there is no cost.
