I love photography – everything from baby, family, boudoir, wedding, fashion, and etc. At times I have thought about picking it up but why when there are so many AMAZING photographers in Fayetteville and that’s why I love working with all of them.
I wanted to write today on how I answer the question “Who would recommend for a photographer?” Well because there are many talented photographers in the area that I have had the pleasure to either work with, meet, or just check out their work – I can’t throw out just one! So I have set up a little questionnaire to help the inquiring individual looking for the perfect photographer to meet their needs.
And because I am a sensitive being I always wonder if the photographers I work with get bothered that I work with so many. Especially when so many of the local photographers have become close friends of mine. So I thought I would share my questions I ask the inquired mind about who they should book.
Here it is:
Price is my first question because if I know their budget I can already begin the process of a recommendations. When they are unsure on their budget I help break it down for them.
Depending on the type of photography depends on the photographer:
Often times Photographers choose a niche that they most enjoy and they revolve their business on that niche. And by knowing the purpose and style session you are looking for I can narrow the list of talent down even more.
Some might not even think about this when they first start the search for a photographer. But there are a couple different styles to look for when choosing a photographer. Here are the styles I show them to even further refine the search-
Light and Airy
Minimal vs heavy Photoshop
These 4 different questions help me break down on recommending the perfect photographer for the need of the individual. Once I have this information I provide 3-4 photographers so they have options and can call the photographers and see which best fit for the time, budget, and vibe.
I love all my photographer friends and enjoy working with each and every one of you and I never want you to feel like I am not referring you to everyone but I try to help refer your best potential clients to you!
Cheers friends! Keep on Shooting 🙂
