Not sure where to begin.... Michelle and her mom captured our day perfectly. They set the tone of the day from the very start. We had a calm from the start, and that came from them. We had a BLAST taking pictures. We laughed SO much. They captured all the things we didn't see going on as well. It truly was our best day ever and Michelle and her mom are two of the biggest reasons for that. You can't go wrong with Michelle. She will be taking our pictures for years to come!Jun 23, 2017
Michelle and her mom were awesome! They are so friendly and willing to do what it takes to get great shots. Michelle has a beautiful smile and seemed to be smiling as much as we were all day long. She is very encouraging and makes everyone feel comfortable when taking photos. We were so excited to find a talented photography who fit our budget! She is also timely when it comes to answering questions and returning the photo collections. Highly recommend!Jun 20, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I like to keep my pricing simple. My standard shoot (families, seniors, maternity, engagement) starts at $100.00 for up to 4 subjects, with products sold separately. My weddings typically start at $1000.00 for 4 hours, and includes a second shooter and a gallery download of digital images (approximately 300) with print release..
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Consults are my favorite way to meet, where I can learn more about the photographic needs of my new clients, and we can brainstorm the details, such as wardrobe, location, props, and shoot dates..
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I picked up my first DSLR, and my passion for photography ignited! I fed that passion by donating my time each week to a local no-kill animal shelter for 3 years. I love including dogs in my family, senior and engagement shoots.
