I hope your wedding planning is going right along – let me help a little with some IMPORTANT photography tips.
Hiring a photographer – what a pain! First thing that stands out: The ridiculous prices! $3000 on the low end these days. I just don’t get it! Then - the lack of experience. So many brand new photographers or photographers with just a few years experience – that is a bit concerning because most of them have premium prices but not the experience that grants charging them! And the ones with experience are pretty pricy, ok VERY pricy. There seems to be a lot of unnecessary items being forced on you, like a second photographer, or an assistant or travel fees and other additions that you really don’t need. It’s called “upselling”. Pressure– no one should pressure you into booking your wedding photography! It is something sacred! You should decide on your own terms – always! Well, none of this stuff goes on at my studio.
So let’s review to see if you got a or are going to get a great photographer – here is the ultimate photographer checklist:
Ownership – Always and complete. In high resolution without any fine print, or markings or restrictions. You get ALL of your photos. Go crazy! Do anything you want! They are YOUR photos.
Experience – I have shot more than 1500 weddings in the past 17 years – most of them on my own. I know every possible scenario or situation and how to use to my advantage (or your advantage)
Knowledge – Did you know that a great majority of photographers shoot with their settings in “A-utomatic” – all this does is give you incorrect exposures that have to be severely altered. Many of them don’t understand what is happening in their camera as they capture photos.
Know how – Because of my experience, I can manage large groups or special situations professionally and efficiently. I am in charge and my results are amazing
No stress & Flexibility– no arrogance – I work for YOU. My job is to REDUCE your stress so you have an amazing time while I am photographing you. My job is also to be happy about your requests and wishes!
Professional retouching – Yes – equipment today is amazing BUT editing programs make images even more incredible. I am a certified Adobe Light Room operator
Coverage time – No counting minutes or asking you for extra money. I am done when I am done, I leave once I know I have a full wedding to deliver to you with lots of moments you never knew happened!
Test drive – An engagement session is always free – this is how you can at least get an idea of my work and how we work together. It always includes ownership and NO obligation to hire me
Wedding album – A beautiful hand made wedding album is always included. It really is the only accessory worth having. You can make towels and coasters on the internet later.
Printing costs – Local printing is really – really bad, thin paper, low grade inks. Wedding photographers want to charge you up to $50 for ONE 8X10. I will give you and your guests unlimited access to my premier New York City lab available to you at MY COST
to print high quality metallic, true black and white and other regular and high end finishes affordably.
Turnaround time – Six weeks? 10 weeks? C’mon! It is 2020 – people want their stuff ASAP – Millennials anyone? So I turn your photos around in just a few days. Usually 72 hours!
Anniversary portrait – I miss my customers. So a year after your event, we go out and do a year anniversary photo with any new additions to the family or pets – or whatever!
Travel without fees – I love out of town weddings – It is my pleasure to go to you so I don’t charge for travel to most locations in Northern New Mexico
Silly add-ons – NO UPSELLING! – My wife shooting photos, or an assistant you don’t need, or printing credits – none of this is necessary when you know what you are doing. A 2ndphotographer is rarely needed but some photographers will try to convince you it is crucial – it is not.
Professionalism / congeniality – I am a people person and I bring your guests out of their shell to capture more emotion. I dress very professionally, I am punctual and thorough.
Price – Most photographer prices range between $2500 and $5000. My prices range between $1200 and $2200 based strictly on the volume of the wedding, not your affluent venue or social status.
Does this stack up to the photographer you may have in mind? If not – please give me a call and we can arrange a free engagement session to start!
