Photography is my passion and I would do it freely everyday if I could but thought I would take the time out to explain why I charge what I charge below.
Other then the obvious cost of living and standard business costs, there are many other unforeseen costs in photography. As a professional photographer it is my priority to always give clients the best image quality possible. In order to do this expensive camera equipment must be purchased and is often upgraded. I personally own 6 different lenses. Other equipment includes off camera flash, studio lights, tripods, triggers, and light meters and of course the camera body.
Many unforeseen hours are spent editing on costly professional editing software. I love to make people feel and look beautiful which is why I take the extra time to ensure that you look your best. I more often then not stay up until early hours of the morning to ensure that each images looks its best.
Please understand that when you hire me you are not just paying for a photography session but for the professional equipment, qualified and skilled photographer, time spent shooting and for the countless hours spent on professional editing software.
