Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: The first thing I want my potential clients to know is that Im not one of the hundreds of Facebook photographers or clickermoms out there trying to make money with a camera and elaborate props. Yes, Some can make a cute photo with babies and toddlers. But do you really want to chance your most cherished moments, Moments that will NEVER happen again? Please be assured I am a proffesional, Ive made my living doing this for over 25 yrs. My work has been in several fashion printed books/magazines and also on many Album/CD covers of the music world! So, If your looking for beautiful and exceptionally crisp and clear images that make you and yours stand out among the rest, P&M Photography is your best choice. We strive to provide our clients with the best images of their most cherished moments. Whether you need executive head-shots, glamour type shots, boudoir shots, professional model portfolios, family or individual portraits and wedding ceremonies and receptions, we will work closely with you to get the exact look you're trying to portray. We will produce the best possible results and enjoy doing it. I love the candid shots capturing those precious moments. Those images seem to capture the eye and make you see the image as a moment in time rather than a reproduction of life. We come equipped with a complete mobile studio and pride ourselves on our on-location adaptability to the mood and expectations of our clients. I have become very successful in Shooting weddings on a real budget. Anywhere from $400--$2000 and still providing quality images and profesionalism in all aspects of your event. I love capturing from the brides prep to the driveaway after the reception. We can provide you with fully edited disc or digital media of your choice! With all images taken during your session (for those on tighter budgets), so you can print your own pictures at one of many custom or retail outlets or kiosk. We also offer custom prints on gloss or matte paper or on canvas and even printed on highly polished or brushed metal that are ready for the gallery wall! I can also provide my clients with green-screen photography to insert hundreds of digital backgrounds from Gothic churches to being on a unknown planet to a southern mansion. You tell us where you want to be, and we can put your image just about anywhere imaginable. We have a 14-day holding limit on quotes requesting a specified date for their event when there has been limited or no contact from the potential client. We do this due to losing new clients because we were waiting on a response or a decision from a quoted job. As much as we would like, we cannot hold dates for extended periods of time without some kind of commitment. We also cannot refund deposits on booked event dates. We Will gladly reshedule to our best ability a date convient to ourselves and our clients. My pricing is reasonable, and we can create custom packages to accommodate any budget. There's no reason why you need to be extremely rich to afford quality images of your events, yourself, or loved ones. My clients include public officials to political members and many private clients, including authors of several published works and several newspaper and public interest pieces. I am here for my clients to provide them with quality images to further their career or preserve their most precious moments in time and cherished memories.

The day we had scheduled the weather was not our friend but William stayed for hours waiting for the rain to pass and we finally got to do our photos!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is not that hard to understand, I charge a flat rate on most jobs. And adjust it to a clients budget. It also depends on the customers wants. I have some clients requesting physical proofs and prints. Once in a while I will quote a job and give them just that. But most of my clients are finding that if I provide them with digital disc with printing rights. They are able to print or have there prints done cheaper themselves. It also allows me more time behind the camera so I can give them two to three times the images they would receive if I provided them with physical prints. The moral of this story is that digital disc are the much more affordable way to receive your images

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My clients seek me out, through ads, sites such as Thumbtack and weddings.com or refferals. After the initial contact is made I try to speak with a client as soon as possible to establish a personal touch to ease any tension or questions a client might be experiencing. Then setting a time convient to us both to discuse there needs.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    25 yrs exp. and masters degree in photography/photojournalism from academy of arts. San Fransico. Ca.
