A couple of weeks ago, I had a perspective client come to meet me. At the end of the consultation, she told me that she was "very happy that she decided to come in to meet me" because she almost did not, based on her perception of what I would be like based on the feel of my website. She knew my photographic skills and that I could capture the moments exquisitely, but what would I be like to work with?
She explained that she had expected me to be very aggressive and an "in your face" photographer and perhaps even a little "arrogant". Anybody who knows me knows... that is definitely not my personality. My personality is much more gentle and my style of photography is to blend in and capture the day and definitely not take it over. She did not get the feeling that I am a "romanticist", caring and "soft" person, which is the feeling she had after meeting me.
After asking more perspective clients about the impression they had received from my website, I had several similar responses.
NOW I wonder, how many people did not call me because of this false impression????
Well... it was obvious it was time to work on my website. It is now live online and almost finished.
Please leave any comments and suggestions.

Phil Farber is truly amazing!!! He was so much fun to work with, he's easy going, and produces the best photos I have ever seen. He knows exactly how to capture moments without being a distraction to anything going on during the entire wedding day. You can never take back your day and repeat it so you want to make sure your photographer is someone you trust to capture these memories and Phil Farber is exactly this person. He exceeded all of our expectations and my husband and I in addition to our family are all in love with all of our photos.
Proud to be chosen by
