That's quite an aura you have.

    I once won a free photography package with a local "photographer". Her work was like this, same techniques, but just slightly shittier. I wanted to gift the package to a friend, but I couldn't do that to them.

    I like the last one of the couple where they are so blurry and glowy that they look like they aren't even real.

    Free session from a photographer like this? NBD. That means she's new and is building her portfolio and will ostensibly get better. This is a guy who's been doing this for 20 years. That means he started in film and has had plenty of time to learn how to get it right in camera. But instead of getting better ... Well.

    Not exactly. I won it for free at some bridal event raffle back when I was a bride-to-be. She normally charges for her work.

    How much does this photographer charge anyway? If its low enough, that would get a much higher percentage of the population on board with his work.

    That still makes sense to me. She usually charges for her work because creatives don't work for free. But they also don't give shit away unless they know that they need more experience and promotion.

    He's cheap for the area, but not so cheap that his pricing doesn't reflect his time in the industry and "awards" he's won from the Knot and WeddingWire. There are truly excellent photographers in the area who have been working half as long and charge 4x more, though. He often partners with a cut-rate videographer, and both will give a discount if their couples book both.
