How does it work?
We provide an underwater experience that you can treasure forever. Book a session and choose from any of our print options including gallery wraps, acrylic prints, framed prints, and more. Contact us for more details!
Do I need to be an expert swimmer to shoot underwater?
We shoot all levels of swimmers, but, please be HONEST about your swimming abilities so we can prepare appropriately. Safety is the first priority!
Where are you based and do you travel?
We are based in Nashville, TN, but we love to travel!
When will we get receive our art?
After your session, we will schedule a time to go through your images and choose your top favorites via Zoom or in person. After you have chosen your favorites, we will place your wall art order. Once your wall art is ready, we will either deliver them to you or you can stop by our home studio in East Nashville to pick them up. Please allow 4-6 weeks for us to process your art.
what kind of art will i receive?
We offer a full range of art options including gallery wraps, framed prints, acrylic prints, metal prints, and everything is customizable!
What should I bring to my underwater shoot?
It's best to wear something that flows in the water and doesn't stick close to the body. If shooting maternity, we have 3 medium sized maternity gowns you are welcome to borrow, or you can bring your own! In addition to the gowns/outfits, please bring a swimsuit that matches your outfit, or you can bring bra/underwear that either matches your skin tone or your outfit. Keep in mind that red and yellow pop most underwater. Stay away from greens and blues if you can, as they tend to blend in with the water. Here's a checklist of all other items you should plan to bring:
- Contact case/solution (we recommend taking out contacts for photoshoots)
- Dry set of undergarments
- Dry set of clothes
- Trash bag to put wet items in after the shoot
- Sunscreen (if shooting outdoors)
- Shoot Attire + Accessories/Shoes/Etc
- Come with Makeup DONE and bring makeup for any touch ups in between
- Waterproofing makeup setting spray - we recommend Mehron Barrier Spray, available on Amazon for around $10
- If you're wearing wigs, we recommend the Esha lace front adhesive glue (strong hold) and be sure to get the remover as well! It's also available on Amazon for around $25
How do i prepare for my underwater shoot?
Before your shoot, we recommend looking up some inspiration images/creating a pinterest board for the look you want to go for that you can share with us prior to your shoot. If you have the option to practice underwater, please do so, but only with a safety diver or lifeguard present. Never practice your breath holds or posing by yourself. Breathing is a huge part of underwater shoots, so having awareness of your breath control is always a plus!
what should i expect during my underwater session?
The first half hour of your session will be prep work for the shoot. We will go over posing, breathing, and tips to get the most out of your shoot. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your shoot time slot so we can make the most of our time together.
do you shoot out of water, too?
Yes! And we make videos too! Visit www.creatwellllc.com to see our video work and drop us a line for band/artist/family photo questions.
How does payment work?
Your session fee reserves your spot on our calendar and must be paid in full by the scheduled session date. When ordering your art, we ask for half the amount due up front and the remaining balance to be paid upon art arrival, unless you choose to sign up for an automatic payment plan, available upon request.
will i get digital files of my art?
Yes! We will always send you a low-res version of your art, perfect for social media. These digital files are for the photographs you have purchased wall art/prints of.
