Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: I offer a 3 and 5 hour elopement package. They both include a complimentary engagement session, local travel, print release and my custom photo editing delivered in an online gallery. Rates start at $2600 plus tax for elopements. I follow Leave No Trace principles as well and feel that is an important aspect when it comes to elopements and offer location suggestions and timeline help. Having a coordinator is highly recommended.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: I’m currently planning to educate myself more with off camera flash and will be implementing that more into my business. I’ll be going to WPPI next year as well to be around like minded individuals and to educate myself more.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: I’m a woman owned, black small business owner and I’m catered to providing beautiful photographic services to all couples looking to have their day documented. I believe that love is love and accepts everyone from all different walks of life.
