Customers rated this pro highly for value, punctuality, and professionalism.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Most of our pricing is customizable, and we work hard to take everyone’s specific wants in mind when building a package for them. The more we know about a client’s wishes, the more accurately we can quote. Generally, we require a retainer of half down to get on our calendar. That way, we can go ahead and get everything that we may need for your shoot and turn away all other potential work that may want your date(s).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Brandon, a.k.a Sky has a commercial photography degree from NOSSI in Nashville. He also does video for our company, and he has a commercial pilot's license for drone photography. Experience wise, he photographed his first wedding at just 16 and has been photographing ever since. Courtney, a.k.a Sunshine has 12 and a half years of professional work experience working in different chain studio companies, freelancing, and souvenir photography. She has taken photos of everything from newborns to the elderly! As far as educational experience, she holds the equivalent of a Bachelor's in Business Administration. Our studio is part of PPA (Professional Photographers of America), which means we are recognized as 'professional photographers'. We are registered as an LLC in the state of Georgia, so we make sure we follow all the laws to the letter. We take great care in preserving our company's professionalism and reputation.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
1.) It’s good to have an idea of what you’re looking for in mind. Having a particular style, color palette, reference images, and/or theme can help you choose a professional that can match your vision. This also gives your professional a heads-up in what the scope of work is for your project, whether that be a light, airy wedding or a rustic vibe for your restaurant. 2.) Remember you pay for quality and professionalism. Your budget largely determines the type of work you will get. Higher budget = higher quality. Would Marvel hire a $100 videographer to film their next movie? 3.) While the photos are the final destination, don't forget about the journey! Interviewing different photographers will give you an idea of their personalities, and you should choose whoever you mesh with the best. You want to be able to ask questions, make changes, and so on. It'll be hard to do that if there is a lack of trust and/or respect between the two of you.
