What you gonna do if you ask for photography package but the photographer didn’t response your question? Your message is not goes to spam and the photographer got your message clearly but you might be asking in a wrong way, so this is how to ask wedding photography packages by email.
Dear lovely couple no matter where you are my name is Bima and I’m a wedding photographer, if you just take your first step of visiting this page and wanna figure out what this blog is talking about than I’m gonna tell you that I shooting wedding since 2008 and post all my works in it.
Instead doing nothing following my photo session and editing, I choose to write a story about wedding so my future couple able to get the right information about wedding right from a person who get involve with this business perfectly. Sometimes it just a simple thing, just like what I share about finding the best design of your wedding invitation card.
Once I open my services of shooting wedding and engagement in Bali than I receive hundred of emails from marriage couple wanna be but trust me! only few emails that will receive a reply from me.
Why I’m Not Reply All Photography Package Enquiry
I receive their email even I read it personally before my studio manager read it so what I’m gonna tell you here is their email is not goes to spam, it is definitely in my inbox. But why I choose to not reply all of them and this is the answers:
You just concern about price at the beginning!
Wedding photographer is a professional and artist who work in photo industry, just like other people who work in this profession like doctor, architect, or even musician they truly put their passion on it.
Once we talk about passion than it’s not only about pricing, they definitely need money to live but trust me that every they got hundred ways of earning money. Money it self is the thing that need to be concern, but asking it in a extreme way is will seems to be rude and impolite.
Have you ever heard about Gordon Ramsay? if someday you willing to hire him as your wedding chef and send him an email like ‘Hi Gordon…what is the price of hiring you for being a chef in my wedding?’ than what will Gordon or his manager think about you?
If you willing to ask about services from photographer than you can try to write like this, instead write as simple as:
Hi, I want to get married in Tuscany, may I know your price?
Than you can modify it and write like this:
Hi (mentioned the photographer’s or company name),
My name is Tiffany coming from Miami Florida, I cross your website and found so many beautiful pictures that coming through your hands. I just wondering that if you able to become of my wedding photographer than it blown my mind.
The ceremony and celebration will be held in Casa Cornacchi, Tuscany on July 27, 2019 and I will invite around 30-40 people which belong to my family and close friends, are you still available on this date?
Kindly tell me more about how to hiring you and what should I prepare for it.
Love to hear from you – Tiffany
Now what do you think about Tiffany? seems to be nice right and the best thing is, she send all the details and expectation clearly, including specific date, venue, and the guests which help the photographer or the studio manager to check for availability.
Try to write like this to any photographer that you want to ask, be specific and please be concern about your sentences. Please remind that services, no matter what is that, they ain’t commodity so really need beautiful words to ask for.
Be more specific!
As you see on the email sample above, Tiffany also send the date, venue, and even the guest who will coming to her wedding. This is the reason why you must specific on this case:
- Date – it helps the photographer to check his or her availability
- Venue – it helps the photographer to check how to get there, is there any special transportation or accommodation near by that should be provided
- Guest – it helps the photographer determine how big your wedding is and recommend for any other shooter or assistant to be involved with
