What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Generally all of my product, brand and event work starts from $60/hour and moves up from there depending on the time involved. If it is necessary for you to have a ceiling, but our shoot requires more hours than is in your budget- I am willing to work with you. All images will be in your hands via digital resource within 2-3 weeks and images will be available for download by everyone on your team.
Weddings begin at $1,000. Since weddings take a little longer to edit, the images will be back to you within a month of the special day.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to begin by getting to know my client- this could be over the phone, Skype or preferably, over a cup of tea. The reason this orientation is so crucial is it gives me a feel for who they are, while simultaneously allowing me to discuss in detail what their vision is for their project.
Communication is key to guarantee satisfaction with the final product.
