So, you are taking the first steps into finding a photographer to capture an upcoming event. There are so many different options out there and it can be difficult to know where to start.
First, find a professional. There is a difference between a professional photographer and a "photographer." Professionals are fully educated on lighting, exposure, composition and posing. Professional photographers do not just have professional equipment, but are fully insured and capable of photographing your event. It isn't considered a hobby to us; we take what we do very seriously and put a lot of time and energy into your session/event.
Second, understand your investment. Yes, photography is an investment. We want to fully educate our clients on the importance of displaying their images to best suite their needs. With that, at our studio we do not believe in session fees. Thats right, no session fees! To book and hold an appointment, we ask clients to put down a deposit. About 1-2 weeks after the session, we invite clients to come back into the studio to view their completed images, and will use that that deposit as a credit towards the print/product order. We truly believe that your investment should be well spent, and session fees are no longer necessary!
For weddings, we have three different day coverage options for you to choose from, which all include engagement sessions. We will walk through the specifics of your day to help customize your perfect wedding. We offer many options in displaying your images as well-whether you decide to purchase prints, metals, wraps or wood prints, decide on a custom USB with all of your images, or album design, etc, we will be there to help in the process.
Lastly, know that we will be here from start to finish, to help guide you through the process of your session/event!
