The Bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten!
The amount of times I have had clients come in and express their sheer disappointment with me because they thought hiring a "photographer" that offers 100 images on a disc for $50 was a bargain. The client ends up with a disc full of ok images and is left to perhaps print them out themselves, which we all know that cd or USB will get shoved in a desk and forgotten about! If you're going to invest in memorable portraits then do yourself a favour and hire a print photographer! Someone that is not going to give you digital files and walk away. I pride myself in delivering beautiful keepsake story boxes, wall art, fine art prints and heirloom products. If you're paying for a shoot you might as well have the whole service and get it done properly the first time, yes it will be more expensive than a disc of ok digitals but it is worth it! YOU are worth it!
