Tell us about your business.
Sassybomb Photography is a home-based business without the overhead of a full-blown studio. We like to capture and emphasize the romance in weddings or the connection between a couple or a family.
What makes your business stand out?
Outside of "the church"—bridal and engagement sessions—a lot of photographers are "natural light only." Unfortunately, natural light doesn't always produce the most desirable result. We take professional-grade studio lighting and light modifiers to almost every shoot. Carrying all of that gear into the field isn't the easiest thing to do, but in our opinion it's worth the effort.
What inspired you to start this business?
When my wife and I got married, we were paying for our own wedding and couldn't afford a professional photographer. As is the norm, we were disappointed in the photos we got back. We had previously run a video-production company and decided that we'd get back into the mix with still photography. Our intent was to offer a high-quality product without the high pricing.
What is your most popular offering?
Our all-inclusive wedding packages that include either a 10"x10" or 12"x12" flush mount leather-bound albums. Our large prints on Canvas or Metal are also very popular.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Tears. When a bride looks at their photos and cries again as they relive their day it gives us a great feeling of satisfaction.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
The ceremony itself. It is great being an important part of such a meaningful day. The appreciation from the family as they observe you working hard to preserve their memories.
