I believe there are questions to answer before considering cost.
Not all photographers are created equal.
It is more than just comparing the price of an 8 x 10, or how many images on a disk. Being a “professional” is not the same as being a craftsman and different photographers have different styles. They have different experience and expertise levels.
I believe you should ask yourself the following:
Is this event a one-time event?
Does their style match your vision?
Are these Heirloom images to be cherished for years to come?
What experience level are you willing to trust in a photographer?
Does the photographer show a confidence level in their craft?
Does the photographer you are choosing have the necessary equipment and the understanding of the equipment limitations and capabilities?
Do you believe you get what you pay for?
I truly believe that there is no right or wrong answers to these questions.
I believe the answers to these questions must match your vision and goals.
Every photographer has to start somewhere and every client should choose according to their needs.
I choose to meet and discuss your needs first. I want to know what your vision is.
I want to create images you will treasure forever.
We will discuss all the aspects of your session or event and then you have the information to make your decision.
