I know you have a choice when it comes to choosing a photographer and that price is a primary consideration. Many of today’s young couples are saddled with student loan debt as they start out in life, and the last thing they want is to work with high-pressure wedding professionals hoping to help them double it! I also understand that you have many options available at various levels of quality from young wanna-be photographers and from online vendors. Many families are content with digital files only for presentation via social media. Therefore, when dealing with individual clients and wedding couples, I do not practice pressure sales techniques when customizing to meet my client’s needs.
I maintain the lowest prices you’ll find among photographers on theknot.com in Minneapolis! Nonetheless, when you choose to work with me, you can expect the exceptional attention to detail necessary to deliver unique, high-quality imagery, and to have it done on time. With every session, I carefully select and process each image to my professional standards. I am a believer in quality over quantity, and strive to produce technically proficient portraits with some unique impact. Just as importantly, when shooting weddings I understand that telling your story will require some documentary variety, a perception of family, and a sense of place.
MetroStyle is also a full-service studio! But I know that my clients are young, hip, and internet-savvy. So though I have them available, there is no pressure to get you to buy albums or other add-ons that you can find elsewhere at lower prices. Within one week after the wedding, you will have your fully photofinished images on disk with a personalized copyright release form. For those who choose to design a more full-featured a la carte package, I have many different presentation options available, such as fine art gallery wraps, standout float-wrap prints, mounted canvas, and a variety of album options that begin at a very economical price point.
All sessions include free in-studio pre-wedding-day consultation & planning as necessary. These may be done via email or phone, but I do recommend meeting in person in my comfortable home studio, so as to get the most from your session.
If I may offer a final word: PLEASE practice due diligence in choosing your photographer! 98% of the photographers on the front page at the knot are a safe bet. But a Canon Rebel Camera with a Plastic Kit Lense wielded by every young girl on your block with zero skill and nothing to lose DOES NOT EQUAL A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER!! Too many young couples these days are gambling away a lifetime of precious memories for a couple hundred bucks in savings. DON'T TAKE THAT RISK!!
