- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I am currently offering a special wedding package for both services. You will get 6 hours of photography and DJ/MC support for the ceremony and reception on the day of your wedding plus a two-hour engagement session for $1200. For wedding photography only, my prices start at $550 for 4 hours of coverage and increase $150/hour after that. For DJ/Emcee service only, my prices start at $400 for 4 hours of coverage and increase $100/hour after that. For engagement or family photos, the price is $175 and includes up to 2 hours of coverage. Please contact me for a detailed explanation for any of our services along with the answers to any of your questions. I look forward to meeting and working with you in the near future.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to meet with the client and his/her fiance to talk about the vision of their perfect wedding day. Then we talk about how I can best make that dream a reality. I like to lay out a plan for how the day will go including arrival time, where the bride and groom will get ready, whether we do a first look or not, what time each group will be getting pictures taken, etc. I make sure we cover every detail so nothing out of the ordinary happens the day of the wedding. After the meeting, we schedule a time to do engagement photos and I make sure to touch base with the client a couple of times before the wedding and again the week of the wedding. After the wedding, I take the time to critically look at every photo and only choose those which I would be proud to display in my own home. I edit all of the acceptable photos for color balance and clarity then upload them to a Dropbox folder which only the client will have access to.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
As a respected Digital Media instructor and former live sound engineer, I bring a wealth of experience to my work every day. I have a BA degree in Mass Media instruction and have attended many online and in-person classes over the last 25 years.
