Kathryn was on-time, kind, offered suggestions and was quick! She was exactly what we needed with a 2 year old. The pics turned out beautifully.Jun 3, 2016Verified
Kathryn was an extremely easy and friendly person to work with. We took some pictures in downtown Chicago and the weather could not have been uglier! But we stuck it out and Kathryn was able to turn a negative into a positive. Some of our favorite shots were taken after the rain started when she found new places to shoot and incorporated the umbrella and other creative elements to get some awesome shots!Sep 9, 2011
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is simple. Which makes it complicated for this business. Usually photographers have these crazy price packages, which either include a bunch of stuff you don't want, or are way to expensive. or you will run into having to choose a la carte in you don't like their packages and that will end up blowing your budget, too. I'm simple. What is your budget? Ok... now what are you looking to get for that? Ok... now let's make that work. Pricing, packaging, budgeting, done.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Of Course! It is so important to look at what other people are doing as well as stay on top of what is happening in the field technically. Being in a tech-heavy field, in which things change to quickly you have to know what it going on. I follow numerous bridal blogs as well as photography blogs, to see what those that are the best in this field are doing. It helps me keep my finger on the pulse of trends and to always be collecting new ideas to use in my own work.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I generally work with people who are looking for something out of the ordinary. Someone who isn't afraid to be different and have fun. I work with all types of people in all different situations. I like to try to make great photography available to everyone, not just those who have tons of money to spend on their special day. Just because you don't have tons of money doesn't make that day any less special to you or your loved ones, you should have memories to match!
