Photography is a tough service to shop for. You may find that one photographer has an 8×10 print priced for $5 and another photographer priced at $75. How do you know which one to choose? Which is the best value? That is a hard question to answer. This is a story from one of our family portrait clients that may help you know what is happening with photography.
One of our client’s now daughter-in-law decided to hire her brother to photograph their wedding. After the engagement session, the daughter-in-law decided her brother wasn’t good enough to do the wedding and so she fired him. Our client, who was the mother of the groom, suggested to use Masterpiece Images. The daughter-in-law told her “your style isn’t my style” and hired another person to do the wedding.
This photographer took the bridals and had two photographers on the wedding day. The mother of the groom reported to us that none of the bridals looked good and from two photographers only 50 total images were delivered from the wedding day. Apparently one of the photographers didn’t have anything turn out that could be shown to the client and the other one only had 50 images. This package cost them over $1000 and the photographer gave them back $100 to make up for the mistake.
I share this story to let you know some of the bad mistakes people are making with their wedding photography. There are good photographers out there but you do need to be extremely careful when choosing so you don’t end up regretting your decision. If anyone has questions about what to look for we would be happy to give unbiased information.
