Twice this month I have been called in to take the place of a photographer who either wasn’t performing their job, or who outright bailed out and didn’t show up. And that’s just the folks who hired me! I have had other calls where they hired someone else, or worked out the differences with their […]

Paying for Nothing

Sooner or later all photographers are going to have to address this subject. I choose sooner. We have made you pay us, and given you nothing.

Why Photographers are Lying to You About Digital

It’s no secret that photography consumers need to be very aware of who they are hiring any more.

My Posts Look Different from the Other Photographers. Here’s Why.

I had just finished a post on the blog when I clicked over to Facebook and saw another photographers’ post. I have to say, it was absolutely gorgeous. The wedding was amazing.

Confessions of a Former Digital-Only Photographer

In the past few years, it has become the trend for photographers to offer digital files (and for photography consumers to assume every photographer does this). They even tout this as a selling point: “You get all the digital files.” I’m not trying to insult anyone; I used to do this. But let me be […]

The Best Advice I Can Possibly Give a Future Bride

Every few weeks, a bride with a bully pulpit and an axe to grind writes an article that then gets passed around the Internet, about how wedding vendors price gouge.
