I had a great question from a bride this morning and as I started typing out my response, I thought, "this would be a great blog post!"
"Hi! I have a question. I know that your packages only went up to 10 hours, but I was wondering if you ever contract beyond that 10 hours. I'm a little nervous about starting at 11:00 am, but we definitely would like you to stay until 9:00 pm (or maybe 10). I'm just not really sure! What do you think?"
When I meet with a bride and groom, I give them an infographic that explains my price points on coverage time, upgrades, and albums- it's like a build your own sundae bar but with combo suggestions. I customize each day's coverage, but the infographic shows the most popular options so things don't get too confusing. I'm one of those people who gets overwhelmed in those super grocery stores with 90 different kinds of olive oil. So I give a couple options and that gets the ball rolling.
One option that isn't listed on my infographic is 12 hours of coverage. 12 hours is a popular option amongst wedding photographers, and usually the biggest package offered. So why don't I push the big ticket item?
