- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My business provides 5 packages. I offer the basic packages then make changes to meet the needs of my couples. Prices run from a full day with a flash drive/ DVD of 600-700 edited images, to the small Mini Package of 3 hours for $550. Photo Albums are options to all packages. My popular package is $1150, which includes 6 hrs of coverage and a flash drive of 500-600 edited images. I provide canvas and metal prints, stand out prints, and coffee table photo books. All images are captured with high resolutions. Photo prints are provided from a professional lab and added at a very reasonable price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I desire to know them personally so that I can capture their personalities in the photos. I listen to them. We talk about them and what is important to them.For weddings, we discuss what they need but I offer suggestions that I know from experience that works. I ask them what they want for services and create a package around their needs and budget.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I took several photography classes. The professor asked me to join him in his small business as the stills photographer while he did the videography. I also trained at a Portrait Studio. They quickly hired me as the manager due to my creative talent and portfolio. I have many years of experience that is needed with the trials of a wedding.
