WARNING: I’m being honest!
After a meeting I had the other day with a potential bride and groom who were looking for the perfect wedding photographer I realized something…For a while now I have been settling. I was settling for clients that fell in my lap and did not value my work only my low prices. Which, in turn started bringing not only my prices down but my self worth. I started doubting my ability and wondering if I was any good. I have noticed that when I work for someone who haggles me on the price and makes be feel like I am bartering, I don’t do the spectacular job that I know I am capable of. I was in school and busy and pretty soon I started doing a majority of these jobs.
I wasn’t even working on my skills anymore.
WELL that is changing. I am no longer going to offer the lowest rate. I am going to offer my rate! I am in the middle I’m not the cheapest but I’m not the most expensive. I want to offer a book with every package. Why? Because, if you are going to the length of hiring a Pro, then you need to get some Pro goodies at the end of the day. You should want to get a package with an album or a book and prints, a canvas and even a video that highlights your day. It is your wedding! Make the memories that much more special.
I am also working on my skills more than ever. Learning new tricks of the trade and how to put them into play. I am excited for 2016 and I hope that you are too! There will be many babies born, marriage vows taken and events of all kinds to shoot! I can’t wait for all the new things that I am learning. Technically as well as with the business side of things.
I hope that you are someone who wants a wedding photographer who is giving it their all, because that it me! I can’t wait to meet you.
