Diego did my Christmas photos for me and my family he help me pick out a location since this was my first time ever getting professional pictures done, he was very understanding and very accommodating due to weather changes. I got my pictures and he had taken a good amount of pictures he made sure to take his time and to make these pictures would look amazing and they sure did ! My family and I are so in love with the pictures we will definitely use diego again for future events. Would highly recommend him for any one looking for a professional photographer.Jan 31, 2020VerifiedPrelude To A Kiss Photography / Diego Hugo Photos's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is based on these factors: Time on the job (including post-production), size of shoot (is it a simple headshot session or is it a multiple light location shoot that requires me to hire assistants). There is more to it than just showing up and taking photos. Depending on your type of shoot, there can be a lot of pre-planning, permitting in some cases, the shoot itself with assistants and maybe a make-up artist, the editing afterward, etc. It can take a lot of time and all that has to factor into the pricing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My typical process in working with a new customer is to move from emails and texts to phone calls as soon as possible. This allows me to start establishing a rapport with the new client and helping to better understand their needs. If I'm working a corporate event, then I always show up at least an hour before the event to meet you, go over the timing of events, and get acclimated to my surroundings. For commercial and magazine work, I like to meet in person before the day of the shoot to establish a rapport with you and understand exactly what your vision is and then find the best way to bring it to reality. For weddings, I like to have a couple of meeting to discuss all aspects of yhe special day. Then, all I require is a half of the session deposit to hold their place in my calendar, and lastly, we will capture some amazing photographs! I love to meet with my new couples, however that is not always possible as many of my clients are in other states. I am happy to Skype or talk on the phone and go over all of the specific details that you required during your shoot. The engagement or Boudoir session is always included complementary in all of my wedding packages. this is the perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other and get a feel for how each person works as well as create a connection and bond. This is imperative so that you are fully relaxed and comfortable during your wedding.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Brooks Institute of Photography. Commercial and Portrait BA degree. May 2000 - June 2004 I'm a member of ASMP and have been certified by the Professional Photographers of America as a Certified Professional Photographer. I found out I had a passion for photography at a young age. I decided to go to workshops that were catered to high school students over the summers. I interned two different types of photographers in high school to figure out what style I enjoyed more. One of the photographers became my mentor and we still keep in contact! That's where I truly found myself and who I was as a photographer. I spent those four years in the Us Marines working with amazing people and listening to amazing story tellers. Since then, I try to learn from all the photographers around me. I truly believe in community over competition.
