Casual Elegance Photography
My wife was neverous, but I left her with Mark and everything turned out perfect. He is a true professional and gentleman.Nov 15, 2015Verified
Mark Anderson is an excellent photographer who always does an amazing job. I first shot with him years ago and I keep coming back for more! His personality puts you at ease immediately and he is truly an artistic genius who has very creative ideas and visions for photographs. He can make me look great on even my worst day! I highly recommend him - he is a true joy to work with - and I guarantee you will not be disappointed!Apr 10, 2014

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?I received a call from a potential client back a while ago and I was actually very delighted that she had such a good list of questions for me before she would hire a photographer - especially one that was going to take intimate photos for her. She had done her homework and said that she wanted to be sure she was dealing with a professional and a real business. Here are some of the questions she asked and the answers I gave her. 1. Do you have a business license? (yes - in Sandy Springs where my studio is) 2. Are you a corporation and in which state? (yes - Mark L. Anderson, LLC - Georgia - DBA Casual Elegance PhotographyÂ®) 3. Do you have insurance? (yes - liability and loss of property) 4. When did you start the business? (2000 - I have been specializing in Boudoir and Intimate photography since 2001. I don't shoot weddings and have not just added Boudoir photography to my menu of services. I take the business of Boudoir and Intimate Photography seriously and professionally.) 5. Do you have a Website? - she was referred by a friend (yes - casualelegancephotography.com ) 6. Do you have a studio? Can I meet with you ahead of the shoot and see your studio? (yes I have a 15oo sq ft studio in a small quite business park - I encourage that you come in ahead of time to discuss a shoot. It's always a good idea to see if you click with someone. You can see examples of my work and we can go over ideas.) 7. Do you have a Makeup Artist? (yes - I utilize the services of several in the area but work closely with 3 - all licensed estheticians. They all believe in cleanliness and ensure their equipment and products are cleaned between uses. These Makeup Artists and I have worked together for over 10 years.) 8. Can I bring someone to the shoot with me? (YES - I highly encourage you to do that) 9. Will my photos be sold or used by you? ( NO! I do not use client images. If a client wants me to use an image I require them to sign an agreement for me to do so. I don't even allow anyone other than the client to order prints or a CD) Another few questions that should also be asked are: 1. What forms of payment do you accept? (I accept most major credit cards, checks, and cash) 2. Do you provide Prints or just photos on a CD? (I can provide either or both. I can also provide books, calendars, and canvas prints.) 3. What are your hours of operation? (I'm by appointment only and have appointment hours 7 days per week and on holidays) She had a bunch more questions but they were related to the process, the shoot, and the timing. As I said, I was delighted that she was taking the task of hiring a photographer so seriously and I gladly answered her questions. It made me very happy that I had followed all the right steps to build my business correctly, and that Casual Elegance PhotographyÂ® had all the right answers.
