- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My prices vary per service offering. If you have any questions, please reach out! In general though, all my fees include pre-production consultation, location scouting, the photoshoot, lighting and equipment, and general editing. Retouching is available for an additional fee. Albums are also available for an additional fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I am an extrovert, so I always like to start by talking on the phone to get to know each other. After that, I will talk about my creative process and packages. If I am hired, we'd also set a separate creative planning call a few weeks prior to our photoshoot as preparation (consult on location, wardrobe, colors, theme, etc). Once the photos are edited, I host a zoom call to review them together so I can get on-the-spot feedback. I always look to improve and love listening to your spontaneous feedback. If you are a wedding client, I use the engagement session as a no-obligations trial and your feedback guides how we can plan your wedding portraits. This is a way I can make the complexity of wedding planning a bit more carefree.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY
