Questions and Answers
How many projects do you average in a year?
Never enough! I always seem to look back on each year and say I could have done at least X# more projects successfully.However, I have yet to look back on a year and not been grateful for each client and every opportunity I was given to learn something new.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
"Are you available?", would be the first question that comes to mind.Oftentimes, people put off hiring a photographer until the last minute. Many photographers are booked up to two years in advance.Don't settle on cost or availabilty.
What is important to know about your profession?
I wish everyone knew that they can take a great picture! I don't care what it is you see in the mirror or what others have embarrassed you with in the past, you are beautiful just because you are you. You deserve to have your beauty captured in a portrait forever.
What types of jobs are the most common?
Weddings are the most common clients I have, however, I have found by treating my clients well I have created many long term return networks.
How can we save money hiring you?
I would always recommend purchasing digital copies. With my unlimited access to the purchaser you can print just what you want when you want it forever! I do offer a great one shot Silver Package and a great Multi-shot Platinum Package that can be ordered directly from the website and shipped directly to your home!
What are you most proud of?
I recently had major bookings for the month of October, I am happy to announce that all projects were completed and returned to each of the clients within 3 weeks, a huge accomplishment considering most of the competition allows 6-8 weeks time to handle return portfolios.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
Know when you need your photographer and exact locations are very important. I also recommend all my brides and grooms to think about the look that they want to convey in the portrait.I love fashion photography and my personal style reflects that.However, if that is not the style that suits your needs I am able to create images that reflect the true you. Last but not least, make sure you have a sound estimate of the total, once under contract with the photographer you are bound by their legal stipulations.
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
I provide a 5 year policy, that means I keep copies of your photography secure for 5 years.There are exceptions to this so please if you ever have an act of God destroy your portraits or digital copies please feel free to contact me.I will do everything within my power to help.
What we may not know about you?
I haven't always been this way, but I love being at home, I love the hours of dedication I put in to each and every portrait that I finish in the wee hours of the morning when others are just waking up.I love the time I get with my family because I only work outside the house just a few hours a week.
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
What do you offer in a complete wedding package?On the day of the ceremony I will arrive 1 - 2 hour pre-ceremony and will stay up to 2 hours into a reception. I will work up to 8 hours with 3 15 minute breaks.I also offer 25% off a Trash The Dress after honeymoon shoot with bride and groom (must be scheduled with 60 days of wedding)
I got started in 2000 with a passion for art and life. I had to capture everything as a reminder that the memory fades with age but a picture has the ability to capture audiences forever.
