Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Look at numerous photographers work, and find one whose style fits your needs, and whose prices fit your budget. If the work on the site does not have the look you enjoy, then find a photographer whose work does.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. If I were to hire a photographer, I would look at all their work, work not even related to what I am hiring them for. I think it helps to give a well rounded understanding of their style. It also helps when talking to a photographer about what you want out of them, what you want your images to look like in the end.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. For photography, I believe the images should tell you everything you need to know. Many people ask about equipment, time in the industry, and so forth. These can be somewhat insightful, but at the end of the day what should matter most is that the images are exactly what you were wanting. I would choose a great photographer with no experience over a seasoned one whose work is not that good.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. My approach is more about capturing special moments and less about posing people. I like to run around in the background, and unobtrusively capturing photos of special little moments that happen between a bride and groom, or with family members or children.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love connecting with the bride and groom. I spend all day with them, and it is my goal to have them feel comfortable with me, to view me as a friend, as I believe this allows them to be more comfortable around me, which allows more more candid moments.
