Why does choosing a photographer seem to be one of the most difficult things to do? Why are they so expensive? What makes one photographer better than another?
Hello! and thank you for spending a few minutes with us learning about who we are, and what we do. We are Kirk Harris and Maureen Stewart, a Husband and Wife team of photographers. Like you, we have had occasions where we would be looking for a photographer to capture memories for our family event or occasion. Searching through hundreds of websites, sifting through price packages and flyers, and investigating word of mouth recommendations. Here’s what we have found.
There seems to be this cookie cutter approach to pricing vs what you get for their services. So why would we be any different? Unfortunately, that is the nature of the business. However, both Maureen and I have sat down and have gone through what we didn’t like about it and came up with our own way of pricing vs. service. Bear with us for a minute, we will come back to that.
The other pet peeve of ours was everything we saw looked staged. Good for an album but didn’t really tell a story. And as Photographers, we always want to showcase our best work. So, it has become common place to showcase those staged images to try to catch your eye. We all agree that there are some “just have to have” images like Grandma and Grandpa with the Bride and Groom or Mom and Dad with them and the rest is the story.
That’s where Maureen and I flourish. We believe that your “Special Day “is the story of YOU. We want YOU to look back on those memories and relive that moment every time you look through our work. We do this in everything we capture with our camera. Whatever the event or occasion may be. We have had the pleasure of working with people from all walks of life and have had some great experiences working for both print and online publications. From Events, Family Portrait, Engagement, Wedding, and Maternity Photography , We make it a memorable experience for all .
Remember we said bear with us for a moment? wait no longer …. Our package pricing vs. our services is custom tailored for YOU. That’s Right! We said it! YOU make the decisions! When you meet with us, and the topic of packages comes up we have a “you decide” approach. you decide the Where, What, Who and When. And you would be surprised at just how affordable it can be.
