What makes your services unique?
My work is difficult to replicate, both on my part as well as my competitors, because each set of images are unique to the subjects, locations and the chemistry. I don't care how pretty the place is decorated, or how expensive the dress is. Those not a prefect marriage maketh. It's all about the little things that connect and bind, and those little moments and memories to savour. Once we can treasure the little things, the big things will take care of themselves.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, is it a requisite for the client to provide your meal?
Lunch is not necessary if the first par of the wedding ends by 2pm. Dinner is appreciated on location though. I probably need 15 minutes to polish down some fried rice or sandwich and the couple won't even know it.
