What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We have packages we can provide upon request
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We attend WPPI, which is the worlds largest Wedding Photographers Convention and take classes in which to improve our skill level. We keep up with online workshops (as well as host our own), and belong to many photography groups.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
While planning our own wedding, and doing family style photography on the side of our full-time corporate jobs, weddings quickly became our favorite. We were fortunate to have clients believe in us, and we quit our jobs and shifted our focus to couples in love :)
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings, Engagements, Boudoir, Photo Booths, Videography (eMotion Film), Destination and Local.
Beach and Barn weddings happen to be our two favorite styles, but we love any style that a couple incorporates who they are into the look of the day.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We recently did videography for a same-sex couple. We are proud of it on both a professional level, as we utilized new sound equipment to capture audio, but also on a personal level, as it is finally becoming more acceptable for same-sex couples to have the same rights as everyone else. #samelove
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Research their work, ask for references. Just because someone can shoot families or babies doesn't mean they are ready to shoot a wedding. Also, we highly recommend two photographers with pro-grade equipment. They give two view points (his first time seeing you, and you him, as you come down the aisle pretty important to you??), and also allows one photographer to keep shooting while the other has to replace a batter, or a memory card, or God-forbid has a malfunction.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It's not 'clicking a button'. The rest of my answer can be repeated from above ~
"It's not about the camera, and it's not just working one day. It's about on-site training, client interaction and continuous weeks of editing following the 'one day'. We work hard to maintain friendships for a lifetime, and it's the occupation that we base our survival on. We are professional. "
