Not everyone is looking for the same products, services, style of photography, personality of photographer or even quality of pictures. But I would bet that the majority of people reading this article are looking for the "Biggest Bang for Their Buck" when it comes to their photography.
What customers look for?
The search for the right photographer can be a daunting task. To think that one could get the same quality of products and services from any photographer charging $2000 would certainly be naïve. Suppose a couple has determined that they have a $2,000 budget for a wedding photographer. A few of the items most couples consider when hiring a photographer are:
Candid & Detail Photos
We received our photo album and LOVE it! I love the shiny gloss and having everything completely put together for us is amazing! When I’ve shown it to people they love the book and have even said it makes them feel as though they are looking through one of those gorgeous wedding magazines because of all the beautiful photos. My mom says she loves looking through the photos because she can see the emotions on our faces and the photos actually show exactly how we were feeling that day. My favorite photos are definitely the action shots where people are not exactly posing but rather just “in the moment.” I also love how you and your assistance caught so many details, such as the birds on our wedding cake, and photos of my grandma’s cake topper (which we had displayed at the wedding). There are so many photos that will be wonderful decorations for our home forever, and will always remind us of that special day. Also some of the photos are beautiful gifts for our family and friends. Another thing I LOVE that you did is give us all of the photos on a disk. This allows us to choose our favorites at our own pace and have the freedom to do whatever we would like with them. Last, our slideshow was probably one of my favorite moments of the entire day, because we got to see the happiness of our families and the excitement when friends would see pictures of themselves. I thought your work was wonderful and everything I received from you and your team is absolutely beautiful and worth every penny. I love your assistants and our videos are fun to watch time and time again. — Gina
