About Megan Park Photography
Megan Park Photography is an all-occasion photography service offering affordable sessions that are fun and spontaneous! From senior and family portraits to engagements, weddings and events, Megan Park Photography covers it all in Orange County, CA and surrounding areas.
I specialize in single-person portraits - such as senior portraits and acting headshots and engagements and weddings.
I currently shoot with an Olympus E-1 with a few different Olympus-brand lenses. I don't have an affinity with Olympus, but their products have proved successful.
Questions and Answers
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
- Do you charge by the shot or by the hour?
- Do you shoot outdoors or in a studio?
- Do you offer payment plans?
What we may not know about you?
While I am currently in school and majoring in creative photography, all the skills I possess are self-taught and don't come from a book or a classroom.
What is important to know about your profession?
It's not about how much you spent on your camera body and lenses. It's about the passion and dedication it takes to capture the perfect moments and get more than an awkwardly posed shot.
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
I am commonly asked about how much I paid for my camera and lenses. I usually respond truthfully, but explain that it's not the price of my camera that matters. I could shoot with a Nikon Coolpix and my style would still be present.
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
Clients receive a CD of all shots taken, unedited and unwatermarked. Clients also receive a prints package that includes edited photos.
How many projects do you average in a year?
It's tough to average, as I am just fully getting into the field. Most of my shoots are for-fun or to develop my portfolio, but my number of paid shoots is constantly increasing.
What types of jobs are the most common?
Simple portraits are more common for me currently, but weddings are a year-round event that are easier to find.
How can we save money hiring you?
I would recommend myself! My services are less expensive than my competitors, and you receive much more than you would at a studio or with other photographers. I offer much more than just a few poses and an 8x10 - I offer an experience, complete with a price that doesn't break the bank!
What are you most proud of?
I shot my first wedding and did it completely by myself. The photos came out beautifully and the client was absolutely thrilled by them.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
Compare both the prices and the packages. Just because you get a cheaper rate doesn't mean you're getting a better deal. Find the company that offers the most services for the the least amount of money.
I started experimenting with photography at a young age, and by the time I reached high school, I knew there was something about photography that stuck. Once I decided it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, I tried out many different fields before deciding I found my perfect niche.
