Paul did an excellent job. He arrived on time to our small private ceremony and was open to all our request. He showed his expertise in the business to guide us through the shoot without being pushy or rushing anything. I will keep Paul's contact for any future photography projects and will recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, kind and patient photographer for any event.Jul 7, 2017VerifiedPaul W.'s reply
What a lovely morning at the Park! I wish you both much happiness! Paul
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I always give a flat rate for my clients based on their coverage time. This helps my clients plan, and leaves no gray area. I do require payment in full on the day of services. If a wedding, I do require an in-person consultation and a 25% deposit to hold my time.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I typically consult via text or through the app first to make sure we're a good fit. I then ask clients to mark transactions as HIRED in the Thumbtack app. When a formal venue is reserved, and when possible, I like to meet clients prior to event at the venue. I find this helps tremendously in the planning process.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Several master level courses and workshops under National Geographic photographers. I also teach workshops on people photography.
