I love to meet couples at for coffee and for a free no obligation consultation. Take a look at our sample wedding albums & ask questions. I promise to buy your coffee and won’t badger you like a used car salesman. Our approach is relationship based. Lets begin a friendship. All our brides start off as strangers but in the end we are friends. We want to work with you thru the process of planning your wedding.
Thru the years, I have found that some couples had many questions about hiring a professional wedding photographer. Some of the questions had to do with the amount of time and how long they thought they would need a photographer. When we pencil out an actual time line of the wedding day, ceremony, reception & photos they found that the time needed was actually longer than they thought. It wasn’t that I was trying to convince them that they needed to spend more money, but rather to have a realistic view on what they wanted and compare that to what the package they would need.
Another thought that they had not considered for them to think about:
When this wonderful wedding day is to be remembered 5 years from now, How is it that they want to remember this day?
Is it a CD that they will pop into the computer and look at photos? Is it a wall portrait of their wedding day? Is it a wedding album?
There are many cost involved with a wedding, however it is important to keep in mind that those beautiful flowers, yummy cake, delicious food, precious moments will only be preserved thru photography.
It is important to set aside funds somewhere from 15% -25% of your total wedding budget for your photography.
Another helpful part of the consultation that my couples found was that I came with my book of resources. I partner with many vendors, caterers, dj’s, videographers, venues and florist not to mention many more. As we discussed each couples plans I was able to supply them with business cards to help them fill in the gaps of vendors they were still looking for, which they found to be extremely helpful. (Just one more reason to meet with me for your free consultation)
Call me any time @ 253-225-7108 I would love to meet you over a cup of coffee to chat…
Your Friend and Wedding Photographer,
