First things first, I feel ya, weddings aren’t cheap and we all have a budget we need to stay within. We all wish we had that money tree in the back yard, but we know it ain’t growing any time soon, so let’s chat and work something out.
Though, I have to put this out there, haggling and me don't mix well. Again, I get it, budgets. but it’s not particularly exciting for me to have to 'defend' my pricing.
Lastly, It's important to not look at your wedding photography as 'things' you get.
Your photos will transcend generations.
You're not just hiring me to take your pictures. You're hiring me to stop time. To curate all your loving moments so you can go back to that place you ache to go again. To remember how things were and share these memories with your children and their children and their children's children.
Just imagine, 80 years from now, your great grandchildren will see these photos and fall in love with them just as you have.
How much is that worth to you?
You and your tribe. We're talking less than 30 of your closest people. Intimate, romantic, fun as hell.
It's a celebration! You're probably looking for at least 8 hours of coverage and maybe another photographer to capture everything from the first look to the sparkler (or full fireworks🙌🏼) send off
It's not the destination, it's the journey, they say. Well your journey has led you to an amazing destination for your wedding. And I'll be right there with you every boarding group 4 of the way 😊
What's your photography style?
I would say editorial combined with journalistic. Lots of candids but also posed photos that produce real emotion. Sounds like an oxymoron I know lol
Do you shoot destination weddings?
Do you get married at weddings? uhhh, Yeah! I've traveled all over for love and I would be honored to travel for yours. Contact me for more info.
Will there be a second shooter?
Depends on the collection you selected. My first option is lil'ol me. However, my second and third options both come with an amazing friend and partner I've been working with for years.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
You could, It'll cost you. In either food, sweets, booze, or money. Though it's usually in money.
What kind of gear do you use?
The kind that shot all the amazing images you've seen throughout my website and Instagram! (dont follow me? you should @jeffthatcher.photography)
Do I have to order prints through you?
Oh no, definitely not. You want to go to Walgreens you can (though I don't recommend).
What's your working style?
I try to be as hands off as possible. You do you and I'm there to capture it.
Can I give you a list of specific shots we would like?
Absolutely! Whatever I can do to capture everything you need.
Do you include engagement photos in your packages?
Heck yeah! Engagements aren't just for getting photos for wedding sites or RSVPs. They're fantastic ice breakers.
