What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When I hear from a prospective new client, I like to reach out by email and set up a quick phone call if possible. I find it's easiest to chat over the phone to answer questions and get to know one another. I then send a photography proposal via email. Clients can look over the details and select their package, sign the contract, and pay their retainer fee all at once to reserve their date. It's quick and easy!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I mostly work with families, newborns, engaged couples & wedding day couples.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I just finished a family beach session in Isle of Palms, SC. The session lasted about 1 hour and it was absolutely gorgeous! The family showed up in beautifully coordinated outfits, all smiles, and the sunset light was amazing. We laughed a lot, their baby boy did some rolling in the sand, we ran, we splashed, and we wrapped up just as we were losing the light. I couldn't wait to get home and edit their images & they did not disappoint.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Think about your end goal. Is it important to you to invest in quality photography or is the cost your deciding factor? Look at your photographer's work and evaluate their style. Does it match what you're looking for? Chat with your photographer on the phone. Do they seem like someone you'll get along with and will be comfortable working with? These things are so important. You're trusting this person to capture your family's most precious moments.
