- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I offer substantial discounts on weddings in the off season, typically December through March. My average savings is 30%. I also offer a 20% discount on non-Saturday weddings. I currently have two apprentices that have trained extensively with me - they are available at a much lower cost if your budget does not match my fees. Below are some of the other categories that I offer: • Weddings - Very Romantic Style Clean, Timeless Album Layouts. Great value considering my high level of skill and experience • Seniors - Creative, on-location outdoor images.Less than 1/2 price of studio photographers • Boudoir - Romantic & sexy images taken in a safe, professional, & understanding environ • Families - I am patient & kind - I love to work with small children, teens, & adults • Commercial - lots of experience with conferences, real estate, jewelry, & events • Pets - love them! I enjoy photographing them alone, or with their master • Ethnic events - I research everything, and have photographed Hindu weddings, including sangeeth, bar mitzvahs, christenings, and every ethnic wedding imaginable
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Most folks make initial contact with email, and then with to phone contact. I spend a good deal of time assessing your exact needs, so I understand exactly what you would like me to do, and what your needs are for finished products. I then write a contract specifically outlining what it to be done, and what everyone's responsibility is. :)
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I constantly train with the best professional photographers in the world. I have done training workshops with Bob Davis, Jerry Ghionis, and Mike Colon, and many others. These workshops have honed my skills in lighting (particularly off-camera flash, posing, and destination weddings.
