- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer affordable prices and am willing to work with you if my price is out of your budget. Even if you do not go with me, I am happy to help you find the right professional for your needs.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to quickly set up the date, time, location, other details. Within the first few hours of being hired we will work out what the event is, where it is happening, what kind of service is being provided, etc. I want to make sure my clients have all the details down and ready to go so they do not have to worry. If I am providing a photo shoot, I will send a questionnaire to my client to get to know them a little so I can make sure the photos are personalized to who they are. If I am covering an event, I will touch base with the client over phone within a couple weeks of the event to make sure all the details are taken care of and any questions or concerns are addressed. Day of: for photo shoots, we arrive at chosen location and do the shoot. Pretty straightforward and simple. I try to provide a fun, yet professional, experience. For events, I arrive about half an hour before the event starts. Afterwards: I spend about 1-2 weeks going through the photos and processing them to make sure the client receives the best photos at the highest quality. Photos are delivered online unless otherwise discussed.
