Being a professional photographer is not easy. There are lots of demands, requests, comparisons, hours of editing, thousands of dollars worth of equipment, marketing and social media quotas to meet, and clients to find and book. BUT the most important aspect of my job is to MAKE SURE that YOU are HAPPY!
I will do everything I CAN to give you the BEST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE. I have systems in my business that ensure each client is treated with the same respect and given the same personal experience. From first contact to final image delivery, I want to make sure that your experience is positive and uplifting in every way! But in order for you to have the best experience possible, there are a couple things YOU CAN DO before you even book with me and during/after your wedding!
The first major thing is to DO YOUR HOMEWORK! When you start to research photographers and come across my page and my work, I want you to study it! I want you to look back at my images, read a few of my blog posts, get to know me in the ‘meet sarah’ section of my website and most importantly, read about ‘the experience’ you’ll have when you hire me as your wedding photographer! There have been a few times when I’ve had clients ask me to drastically edit their images after they’ve received them. Each photographer has a specific editing style and generally sticks to it. I talk more in depth about my editing style here. My style is very bright, light and true to color so if you’re looking for a more moody look, then I am not the right photographer for you! And that is perfectly okay! I want you to have exactly what you want and for my brides, that’s true to color images that capture the way your eye truly sees colors and light! I also want you to know me. I want you to have a personal connection with me even before we meet. And I want you to know that I am going to serve you and help you and your love focus even more on each other during the most important day of your life! Because a wedding is the beginning of a marriage. It’s the beginning of a forever commitment to one another. To love, to sacrifice, to compromise, to comfort and to lift.
The second thing you can do for the best experience possible with me is ASK QUESTIONS! I don’t want you to make any decisions without having all the information. For example, my husband and I bought a car recently and when we bought our first car, I didn’t even test drive it. So this time we wanted to take a little more time to make our decision. Which kind of worked. I test drove the car 2 times and played with all the controls, sat in the back seat and checked the trunk space. Well, we bought the car, got it home and realized our stroller doesn’t fit in the trunk. 🤦♀️So, no question is a dumb question! I love chatting with you and getting to know you to determine if I’m the best fit for you! And I want it to go both ways! You need to be happy with your decision in me or else your experience isn’t going to be the best that it can be! So ask all the questions and get all the information you need to be the happiest you can be with hiring me for your special day!
The third and final thing you can do is to FILL ME IN ON THE DETAILS AND TRUST ME! I can do my job SO much better when I have all the information! Even if you don’t have all the details set yet, let me know that so I’m not trying to guess! I can even help you figure out the final details if you tell me what you’re struggling with or needing help with. I’m a planner. I love organizing and putting timelines together, figuring out table placements and the best way for your day to flow smoothly! So, let me know! I’m more than happy to help with anything! And once you fill me in, I promise I’ll remember! You can be confident that everything will run smoothly and that I’ll do my absolute best to serve you and take care of you! And if you have specific images you’d like, don’t hesitate to ask me! I love requests and I want you to have all the images YOU want. Because at the end of the day I want you to be so happy that you just married the love of your life. I want you to focus on each other ALL day long and to let me worry about the details!
