My wife had just graduated law school and after a lot of discussion it was decided that I am not competent enough to take good pictures (which I totally agree to :) ) Stephen stepped in at the last minute and helped us out to take some amazing shots. He was very professional, gave good recommendations on what/where to pose etc. and made sure that we all had a good time without feeling stressed out ! Recommended to all!!Sep 12, 2018Verified
Our daughter's 4 year old pictures look like they should be in some magazine. They are absolutely gorgeous. We are very pleased! We will definitely hire him again.Mar 11, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Portrait sessions start at $175 and Events start at $200 for the 1st hour, and then range from $125 - $200 per hour depending on the type of shoot. My prices in Thumbtack are updated regularly, and do not include tax. If you received an "instant quote" from me, it should be fairly accurate. That said, there are times when I can offer a discount or lower my rate (e.g. off peak times, a portfolio boost, bundling sessions, etc.) My website has a detailed price list, please see the about page.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Again, this seems to vary a little, but in general the process is as follows: - Discuss project via email / text / phone. - Agree on date / time / price. - If the project is an event, I send a short survey to be completed. - I send a photo agreement via email which outlines the terms and payment schedule. In most cases, I take an initial payment to reserve the time, the balance and applicable tax is due the day of the shoot. - I create a calendar event with location and invite the customer via email. - Check in the week of appointment to confirm. - Customer can bring a shot list / examples of desired look to the shoot. - After the session, the images are delivered digitally via Google Drive / Dropbox, between 2 and 15 days depending on the type of project. -Prints are always custom and take about 3-4 weeks. -I accept all forms of payment (cash, paypal, venmo, or credit card) and can send online invoicing.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I love to see live music. A few years ago it occurred to me that I can get into concerts for free in exchange for a photo gallery. The rest is history.
