Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: NOTE: I DO NOT DO VIDEO OR VIDEOGRAPHY. Also, if you have seen my price and it is out of your budget, I would appreciate it if you don’t reach out. Unfortunately, pros pay a high fee when customers reach out so if the starting price is out of budget, it is best to find another pro within your price range. The price that appeared is the minimum cost based on the number of hours you’ve entered for your event. Please also google my business name to visit my website, view my photos, and receive my contact information. Thank you for understanding. Hello! My name is Philicia Montgomery and I specialize in portraits and event photography and needless to say, I love my job! This is the most rewarding, challenging, and fulfilling profession I’ve ever had and I am so excited to be doing what I love and sharing my art with new people on a daily basis. Photos are what we use to freeze moments in time—freeze the moment the model breaks her composure because she’s laughing at her photographer doing a split to capture the shot, freeze the moment the father of the bride twirls his daughter at her wedding, freeze the moment a grandma decides to try the new hip dance at the family reunion—and I am an expert at capturing these priceless moments. I strive to have my photos tell a story when years later, when a bride or birthday girl or guest looks back at the photos, she remembers exactly what happened in the moments I photograph. Kindly note: When you reach out to me or ask for my availability via Thumbtack, please write a personal message with your phone number, so I can contact you to discuss your event and pricing. Unfortunately there are lots of browsers/ghosters here on Thumbtack and since we as pros pay a high fee when you contact us, please do take a look at my photos and past projects BEFORE making contact to ensure my style fits your vision. Please be aware that the prices in my quotes are starting minimum prices and will only increase depending on the details of your event. It will not decrease. Unfortunately as aforementioned, I do not provide videography or print photos on demand at events. But I do now offer a 360 video booth rental. Feel free to ask about the details.

Philmont photography was great to work with. Philmont was super professional and very nice to deal with. We hired her for an engagement party. The pictures that she took are gorgeous and she sent them very quickly. I would definitely hire Philmont Photography again.

Philicia was accommodating, professional and on time! I liked that she always got back to me in a timely fashion and answered all questions honestly and lived up to her words. She took great photos of the event that she was hired for, capturing all the highlights yet she was non-intrusive. Philicia was a joy to work with, I would not hesitate to use her again.

FAQs

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

    I take pride in my affordable pricing and cater to each and everyone's budget and project. I don't send out the same template to each customer and always cater my price to fit their needs. I always provide the cheapest possible price based on your project and budget.

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

    My typical process for working with a new customer is always scheduling a call. I think phone calls are easier and more efficient when learning about a new event or portraits and it's best to be on the same page so the process will go smoothly.

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

    M.A. degree from Buffalo State College
