As a formal photographer, I can tell you how important the photography and video are.Â After the party is gone, you will need to capture it on video and photos. Many quinceanerasÂ when planning really budget on this and hire a student.Â I used to be a student, and to tell you the truth I did not know what I was doing. I charge very low, so if I messed up, it would not be costly. After a while when I got experience then my prices were reflected on my work. One thing is I always gave my clients there photos on time.Â Most were really good, but in my earlier days it was just bad….
I just had a old friend that got married hire a student for $300.00 and after 4 months he is still editing. Good photographers don’t edit much and will have them done in 1-2 weeks. Now just because I said $300.00 was cheap, that does not mean that it is bad quality.Â I know a stay at home mom in St Peterburg that does great work, and she is very proffesional.Â She is able to keep her cost low because she works on location and has an in home studio. Also just because it’s expensive does not mean it is good either. So look at there work and see if you like their style.
