When it comes to your big day, capturing the moment in photographs is one of the most important things to consider, especially since the day will fly by for the bride and groom.
Nicole Noyce, of Noyce Photography, has been in the imagery business for 14 years, and knows how important those wedding day memories are, which is why she takes such pride in the work she does.
From standard portraits to full-day wedding coverage, Noyce and the team at Noyce Photography know how important preplanning is to ensure every special moment is captured.
Noyce recently decided to shake things up a bit in regards to her wedding photography packages, changes she looking forward to in the future.
“Basically now clients can book us for the shortest amount of time that’s in their budget, or they could book us for a full day if that’s what they’re looking for, and it’s based off of my family photography rates,” explained Noyce.
“If I shoot a family session it’s normally $160 per hour for photography, and that’s now how I’ve priced my weddings, which is great because now people can say ‘hey I just need you for formal photos because I love your work, can I hire you for just two hours of formals,’ and now I can do that.”
With the changes, Noyce still requires a photo deposit, which can be used later in the process on any of her products from digital photos, prints, albums, etc.
“We have a full-service studio that helps guide clients through and helps them figure out what suites them best after the fact after they’ve seen the images, and they know what they’re working with,” she said.
“They don’t have to know what package they want when they first get started.”
There were a few reasons behind Noyce’s decision to change up her wedding packages, but it boiled down to her knowing the service she provides was out of some people’s budgets, and with the confidence she has in those services, she decided to make them available to a broader audience.
“The packages we had before were fairly high priced in that we were trying to guess what they client wants afterwards, and now I’m basically treating it like any other session with the upmost care and professionalism, but now the pricing is very flexible for whatever your budget is.”
The phrase you get what you pay for frequently comes to mind with photography, especially wedding photography, and on that note, Noyce encourages those looking for photography services to do some serious research before making any decisions.
“I really think a person should do their research before hiring a wedding photographer because it’s not something you’re going to take lightly if you’re unhappy with your images. I believe that you should see a body of their work, and the quality of the product their producing. Not just their work on Facebook or Instagram, because you’re not seeing the actual image quality you would if you were looking at an album or enlargements on the wall, so visit their studio if they have one.”
With Noyce Photography’s 33-acre property, couples have the opportunity to say “I Do” on the studio’s Lakeshore Terrace if they would like, but Noyce also provides on-location photography.
“It doesn’t matter if we’re doing an on-location wedding or at the studio, the same amount of planning goes into it,” she said.
