So disappointing. After gathering together 14 family members-ages 3 months to 70, this photographer did not show up. This missed opportunity may never be available again...tears.Dec 27, 2014VerifiedRona Philpott Photography's reply
I sincerely apologized, it was definitely my responsibility for not scheduling this properly. This was something that I regret, more than I can say or do. I did offer another time that same day, they were upset, and want to reschedule, I understood. I had scheduled for a different time, and not the time they scheduled for. This will NOT happen again.

Photo Booth Rental
Rona and her daughter were a pleasure to work with. They provided all the services we needed within the budget we had. I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for an open photo booth experience.Aug 14, 2015Verified
I found Rona to be very professional and helpful. I, at this point have only spoke with her on the phone asking questions and requesting information, which she provided to me very quickly. So far I am impressed with her. I have looked up and spoke with other photographers in the BHC area and was not impressed until Rona :)Feb 13, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, typically, I have packages - that start at a specific number for different types of photography - the families, seniors, weddings, special events. I do add travel costs into the pricing for distance, and I do take into account finances for specific clients. I allow for payments - prior to their session as needed. I take deposits on the 'bigger' sessions, i.e. weddings, etc.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Although in person is always best, it doesn't always happen like that. I love to talk to them, ask some questions, then listen carefully to what they want, they expect, and what they need. It is all taken into consideration - I am usually very personable with them, and always professional! I find that if they have already viewed some of my work, it helps to know what they like - not everyone is a fit for a specific photographer. If we weren't a fit, I would recommend another person/photographer for them to view their work. I take a lot of notes in our discussions - and include those in my working relationship with the customer. It helps to know something about your client. While, a new person is a potential customer, they become my client - much more to a personal relationship.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Having my camera with me all the time, is always a learning experience - you never know when that special photo opportunity will happen. I always follow other photography & photographer websites, and select tutorials and other learning materials for my continuing education. I seek inspirations for my growth as a photographer.
