What can experience do for you in the world of wedding photography?
A highly experienced wedding photographer offers you amazing advantages over very likable younger photographers that have a nice portfolio but are missing one crucial thing. Experience!
They do not have young children at home.
It can be a tough call when your child has a 104 degree temp or lands in the hospital and you have to shoot a wedding. Even if they do not cancel last minute how focused can you be on that wedding? My kids are grown and gone.
The reason you will be wanting to be paid a lot more 20 years from now in your job is that you have all that experience. The same thing works in wedding photography only I do not charge more. The degrees you achieved and years on the job merit advancement. Same here.
I bought my house 25 years ago when prices were a lot lower so I do not have to pass on my personal overhead to you. In fact I paid my house off so I can work for less and offer a much better collection of images and service at very low prices.
I am not in that early phase of finding a mate or working out the details of my relationship.
I have been married for 30 years so you do not have to worry about me going thru the ups and downs of dating or mating. I am way past that. I can really focus on your needs.
I have been to every location in town. I know their rules. I know great places to shoot. I know the folks that run the place. I know other vendors and get along well with them.
I am not using rented equipment. This is a common practice with younger photographers. They have not accrued the money to own their own stuff. They have no idea what happened to that gear last week in the hands of another photographer. Do you want to trust your wedding on gear failure? I also have a ton of backup equipment. I do not see younger photographers bringing backup or bringing the right gear to shoot the perfect wedding.
I take incredible care of my health. I have done karate for 35+ years. I swim and lift. I eat organic everyday and drink freshly made juices everyday. I take a ton of vitamins, have a far infrared sauna and have become somewhat of a health expert. Why? Wedding photography is all or nothing and my body is my instrument. Lets face it. Younger folks like to party, smoke and live like there is no tomorrow. What if they party hardy the night before your wedding?
I make sure I have a late model car and it is in perfect condition. If you are just starting out that may not be a priority or part of the budget. I have never missed a wedding in over 2,000 assignments. I have never called in sick or had my car be the reason I did not get there.
I am not starting out in a spare bedroom in my apartment or house or as a subcontractor for a large company where everyone and everything is a number. I have a brick and mortar studio. I am not just going to be in this one day and out the next. I see lots of folks come and go over night because of the “heat in the kitchen.”
I have studied business and run a very financially stable business. Look at any newspaper. It is shocking to see how many businesses are here today and gone tomorrow. I have a proven track record and am not going to disappear on you. We are not going anywhere.
There are thousands of young photographers out there online and probably living next door to you. I am on the walls of the major non-franchise bridal shops in town. Wedding Shoppe, Angelique's, Dena Marie, Diamonds, Mary Kay and Rushes to name a few. I have been their preferred photographer. The reasons for this are all listed above. I am honest, above board, great at what I do and I do it very well. They want to recommend a long term and stable photographer that can be counted on.
Whoever you hire has your heart, dreams and dollars in their hands. Hiring experience is the best thing you can ever do.
