Wedding photography real talk: The more you photograph weddings, the more talented you become. And the more you talented you become, the more you charge for your super-awesome-above-the-norm services. Which is great — Yay kicking ass at your craft! BUT the more you charge… the less you shoot certain kinds of lower-budget offbeat weddings.
It happened to me when I was shooting weddings, it's happened to a LOT of our vendors over the years, and it's happening to our sponsor Karina Picache of OhKarina Photography. But Karina isn't going to let that stop her from her days of wine and rose-bouquet-alternatives! Check out her master plan that involves THREE special discounts for Offbeat Bride readers…
I've been on Offbeat Bride forever, I can totally go on and on about what a nerd I am how I love my nerdy people, but I won't for now. 🙂 But, I'm a little sad because, as I've bumped up my price point, I'm getting (still-awesome-but) less colorful clients, and I miss my super offbeat couples who might not be able to afford me anymore.
I love my Offbeat Brides… I always want to love my job and always want to love my clients, and I never want to be bored. So for 2016… I am willing to give SLAMMIN' discounts for certain types of weddings and couples and locations that I've been wanting to shoot and haven't gotten to yet!
Aw, I remember feeling the same way. So let's check out all the ways in which Oh, Karina is offering slammin' discounts to keep her hands and lens on all our awesome readers…
New York elopement discount
Although she lives in New England, she also has a base in New York City! Karina is offering weekday NYC elopements at a special discount in 2016… As she put it, “An elopement with me is threee hours (great for some prep, the ceremony, and some portraits around the town) for $1200 (a $450 saving!)”
Boudoir photography discount
This is awesome: Karina is offering FREE SESSION FEES in the Boston area for her boudoir shoots on Monday-Friday in her Boston-area studio location. Hell, I'm about to hop on a plane to Boston to get images of myself that look anything like these.
Which brings us to our final special treat from Oh, Karina Photography…
