How To Hire Your Wedding Photographer

I was cleaning out some computer files and came across this letter that I used to send out to brides who asked about my services. I think it is still timely, so I thought I would share it with you. Yes, it is a sales letter for hiring, well, me!

Thanks so much for considering Marcia The Art of Photography for your Wedding Day images.

I’d like to start by approaching the intangibles that you purchase when you make an investment in your wedding photography.

Availability: As a full-time wedding photographer I am available to you at your convenience, offering you the expertise only a specialist in wedding photography can provide. I limit my clientele to provide the time necessary to offer outstanding customer service. I’m there for you with the time to focus on your desire and concerns regarding the recording of the most important day of your life.

Experience: Technology has made it easy for almost anyone to record candid images, however, only time and training offers the experience to handle all the variables that come up not only on the big day but challenges that come up both before and after your wedding. I bring to the table 20 years of award-winning wedding photography experience. These years that I have successfully worked in this field is an assurance of not only candids that truly capture the moment, but training in formal photography means speedy and well planned flow for your family photography on your day as well as beautiful artistic images. Most of all it’s an assurance that I have the experience to help you attain your vision on your day regardless of the challenges surrounding that day.

Quality of Art: Art is very subjective. Some people are happy with basics, others want a different level. I bring a wide variety of concepts to my style of wedding photography. From traditional color and classic black and white to fine art and alternative processes, I offer not only an eclectic point of view that will make your album unique, but the knowledge of how to best utilize different techniques to enhance the storytelling aspect of your album.

Quality of Presentation: Your wedding album and other products are your first family heirlooms...the first volume in your own nuclear family history. It is only right that your investment buy you products that last not only your lifetime but allow you to hand your family history down to your children and even perhaps their children. I offer some of the finest albums available today. All of your images are printed on topflight quality archival photographic paper printed by fine professional printers and pre-press books that will enhance your home.

Now as to what I can offer you:

Consultation before and after your wedding day
Outstanding Album Design Service
PPA Craftsman Photographer and assistant
Your Wedding Day Coverage
Personal Website for 90 days
Variety of top quality albums

I believe that this includes not only the tools you need to make the best decisions in selecting your images for your album, but quality that will last as long as you need it to, the rest of your life.

Thank you very much for allowing me the time to outline our services. I truly believe that I can do an amazing job for you as well as offer you unparalleled customer service and satisfaction. I’m looking to the opportunity to work with you.

Finding a trained professional for capturing the best moments is really the key. Anyone can go out and purchase a digital camera and call themselves a photographer. Tried and true- taking chances for photos on the wedding day should never be experimented with anyone but a professional.
