We'd never used a professional photographer for our Homecoming celebration before. We enjoyed working with Photography by Lane. She was very responsive to our needs and always available during the time blocks we'd agreed on.Nov 9, 2017Verified
I hired Layne for a photoshoot for a magazine. Since I could not attend the shoot, it was totally self-directed on her part--Layne captured plenty of great images so we had plenty to choose from. She coordinated with the person being photographed and was very professional in dealing with that person. Thanks Layne!Sep 15, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer several options for weddings: Standard, Premium, and ala carte. The difference depends on the number of hours you want coverage, the location of the wedding, and whether or not you want engagement photos as well. We also frequently offer discounts for Thumbtack requests... well... just because. :) We want to be transparent, so our Wedding and Real Estate fees are posted out on our Website for everyone to see. Especially if it's a unique Wedding which we've never shot before.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?As we want your experience as smooth and uncomplicated as possible, we work first through email/texts/chat to make sure we are a good fit. I usually work with the decision maker to ensure the photography reflects the story they want portrayed. The image is all about the customer. I'm always happy to give guidance on what I think will work best, but in the end... it's your image and your special day. We want your memories to be lasting. All jobs larger than $400 or are fairly complicated will have a contract in place to ensure both parties understand what they are paying for and what they will receive. Then it's wait until the scheduled date, and we will all have a GREAT time together!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We have several certifications/training/awards associated with our photography business. We've been featured on several of the wedding sites and have a presence on The Knott.
