- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When a customer inquires about my services, I ask them about what type of photography they are looking for, quote them a price for the specific session, and find out when and where they would like to have a session. I always want the client to be happy with their experience from start to finish, and be involved in the decision-making process, if desired. If someone has a general idea of what they're picturing then I will give suggestions of how we can realize that idea. I also will help with location ideas, if they are unsure of that they want! Utah is so pretty that there's a little something for everyone, especially with the constantly changing seasons! Once the contract is signed and the deposit is paid, I will update the customer of any changes due to weather, if necessary. I am also available if they have any questions or concerns about their upcoming session. During the session, I will make every effort to keep everyone involved comfortable and happy-- including shy guys and children! After the session, I will edit the photos and give you lots to view and share with your friends and family. I will email you an online gallery. Depending on your preference, you can choose to download the photos to print on your own or you can order high quality, professional prints from me.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been a photographer ever since I can remember! I've always loved taking photos of anything and everything-- especially my friends, family, and landscapes. It started with disposable film cameras, then I graduated to point-and-shoot digital cameras, and finally I experienced the wonders of a DSLR camera and various lenses. It's a passion that I continue to learn and grow from as I learn new techniques and tricks.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you're looking for portrait photography, take some time and look at the photographer's website, Instagram, Facebook, and blog. Do you like their style? What about their use of color and light? Do they portray the mood you are looking for in your photos? If you're unsure of anything, always ask! Some photographers will include digital files, while others will not. Make sure you ask about what your session fee includes.
