SO HOW DOES IT WORK - Courtney Ranck-Copher: Photographers in Pullman Washington

Courtney Ranck-Copher Photography specializes in capturing the significant memories of your life resulting in custom commissioned art pieces of your wedding, child, graduate, and family.



We begin with the end in mind.

Before we shoot any images, we need a plan for how they will be displayed in your home.

Creating a plan and shooting for that plan results in a session that makes magic. 

The entire portrait process takes place in a few different meetings with us.

The Pre-Session Consultation, the Shoot, the Preview & Ordering Appointment, and Delivery.

"So, How Do You Want To Live With Your Images?"

Knowing the answer helps us create a plan for your session,

shoot it in the best possible way to reach our end-goal,

and show you images that thrill you to no end. So let us show you how the Portrait Process works.


First, let’s talk goals! What final result are we shooting for and how will we plan it?

You will receive an in-depth consultation, going over clothing options, hair, makeup est.

I will guide you through the whole process, 

and take into consideration the colors and design of your home decor so your images look amazing.

I also guide you through the ordering process and show you options that will look perfectly designed just for you. 

Your shoot is NOT thrown together.

It is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consults can take place in-person or on the phone. Great portraits begin with a great relationship.

Tell us about your home and your vision and we’ll add in our creativity to make it happen.


Relax we're going to have fun! My sessions are casual and relaxed definitely not rushed. You and your family set the pace and the tone.

During your shoot, I'll combine gently posed shots along with capturing spontaneous unguarded moments as they unfold,

no forced smiles or awkward poses here. I also keep the goals we've agreed on during our pre-consult utmost in mind.

Our sessions will generally last one to two hours. This gives us plenty of time to capture the full range of your family story with no undue pressure on kids or parents.

The Casual tone of my shoots allows everyone to Simply Be themselves in front of the camera that's when the magic happens.


Time for your big premiere! The first time you see your beautiful new family portraits is always as much fun for me as it is for you.

I love to present a slideshow of your images from our sessions together and I definitely make sure that the tissues are handy.

You're ordering session is our opportunity to go through your images one by one to select your favorites.

Then we'll work together to decide which images are best for statement pieces like larger canvases and prints, and which will work best in albums and other products.

I can also show you exactly how you're finished portrait art will look and specific rooms of your home

and giving you an accurate sense of scale when it comes to selecting a size for displaying and framing.

I carry a wonderful selection of professional photography products with the goal to make it simple for you to add the joy of custom fine art photography to your life and home.
