- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
For more accurate pricing head to my site as pricing is updated from time to time! Payment plans are currently available to ease the stress of cost :) NEVER ASK [ME] "Can you come down on the price?" it's so rude and quite awkward. Please do not devalue the photographer. At least not me. We work hard, we stay up late editing, we have lives to live which means we have expenses to cover. I'm flexible with ALL budgets so present your true budget up front and we'll work from there. YES: "I would love to get this type of picture done, but I'm on a very tight budget of $___. Would you still be willing to work with me?" Of course!! 😊 BIG NO NO: Present a budget of $300 and ask to pay $150. 🤨
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
-After a brief rundown of the basic needs (date/time/location) I'll offer a bit of "homework" if new clients aren't sure what they want their vision is for the images. If there are certain visual elements and techniques the client wishes to feature in their images then I'll ask them for a visual reference to act a guide. -When meeting the customer the day of the shoot, for example anything last minute, it is mandatory that we meet somewhere public first. This is just to keep everyone's safety in mind as well as use it as a chance to get any food breaks, restroom breaks, outfit changes, etc. out of the way to prevent the shoot from getting interrupted. -We will always discuss details prior to booking, but on the day of the shoot I will run through them again just to make sure there were no changes that need to be accommodated. -Dress code. I have a background in personal styling/visual merchandising and store displays. If there ANY questions concerning wardrobe or set building/location use I'm more than happy to assist. There is no question too small. For styled shoots I like to plan for a clean/ organized shoot so that there is less to edit out and a faster turnaround time for your pictures. Personal styling is free with all bookings! - Finally, the photographer isn't the only one who creates the artwork so I like to make sure anyone in front of my lens is at ease. No matter what the goal is to have fun, be creative, and feel excited to be photographed so I will always ask the customer how comfortable they or any other party is in front of the camera. - Editing takes time! Sorting through hundreds of photos and then editing them takes a lot of time so patience is key. I always communicate when the edits will be done and quote the due date based on what's realistic for my schedule. If I can get them to you sooner than what was quoted I always will! NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR RAW/UNEDITED FILES.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated with an Associates degree in Digital Imaging and have been self-taught since. Photography is one the many fun arts that is best learned by self-guidance after a point. I've always loved all forms of photography so simply by being eager to learn, studying/practicing techniques when possible, I can then execute and deliver imagery I'm happy to share with clients.
