Today is a big day here at Allison Bolsega Photography
Today we announce something that I, Allison, have been working on for the last few months.
Something that has been going on behind the scenes.
Something that only a select few clients know about.
Today I get to introduce you to someone who has been my go-to girl.
Someone who has been my second shooter & my assistant.
Today we welcome an amazing photographer to the team.
To day we officially launch our newest associate photographer.
Who is Whitney?
Whitney is my right-hand girl. She has been my main second-shooter for over a year.
She’s my assistant on sessions and weddings.
Chances are, if you have had a wedding or session with me this past year, you have met Whitney.
For the past year, she has been an extension of me.
So, when I started to have this crazy idea to hire an associate photographer, she was my first choice.
I know all my clients love her, and all my future clients will fall in love with her.
Whitney is an amazing photographer, loving wife, and strong mom. When she isn’t photographing weddings for ABP you can find her at the beach with her two amazing girls. You might also find her taking the girls out for class field trips, because this lady not only works BUT home-schools her children too!
What does this mean for all of our clients?
This means GREAT things for our clients. Not only will you be able to chat with me, but you will also be able to chat with Whitney.
If you are looking to book a session, but I am booked, we can always check Whitney’s schedule. I am excited that now when new couples inquire about
photography coverage for their wedding, I don’t have to turn them away if I am booked. They now have the option to have Whitney be their photographer. For wedding clients that book Whitney, she will be their main contact point. Our couples will get to know Whitney before the wedding. She will shoot their engagement sessions. She will discuss which flowers they should order, or which gifts to give their bridesmaids. I will put together their timelines (with Whitney’s input), I will send out contracts & questionnaires, I will collect invoices. The editing process will be split between both Whitney and I. She will start the editing process, and I will put all the final touches on everything. Together we will make lasting memories for our clients. Together we will have the happiest clients around.
Why hire an associate photographer?
This is great question. The simple answer is because I wanted to service more clients. It broke my heart when I would have to tell a client I couldn’t shoot their wedding because I was already booked. Now, our clients will have a choice. There will be more session spots open, more wedding slots to fill. In the event that I am booked and Whitney isn’t, she will be my second shooter & visa versa. If wedding clients want to request both of us for their day of their wedding, they can for a slight additional fee.
We will work as a team, even if we are with different clients.
I also wanted to expand my business with an associate photographer, because Whitney is awesome.
She keeps me grounded and keeps me focused when my ADD kicks in.
Plus, its always nice to have someone to bounce ideas off of.
When will Whitney start booking her own weddings?
For the past few months we have been booking Whitney with weddings and portrait sessions. When I was booked, we would offer this option to our clients.
Now that we have worked out a few kinks, its time to make it official official, and announce it to the inter-webs. Because, you know things aren’t official until its on social media.
