Good, Fast, or Cheap? Richmond Hill Portrait Photographer

Good, Fast, or Cheap? Richmond Hill Portrait Photographer

PICK TWO: portraits that are 1) good, 2) fast, or 3) cheap.

Alexis, from her Sweet 16 session.

There’s an old saying that explains that usually, you can only have two while sacrificing the third option. Here’s what that looks like in the world of photography:

Good + Fast = Not Cheap – if you want gorgeous images and you’re in a rush, you may have to pay a rush fee. This allows the photographer to move you to the front of the line and get your images back to you in the time you need. This is also why you want to always schedule early.

Cheap + Fast = Not Good – usually this combo means the photographer doesn’t have a wait list of clients and isn’t booked by a lot of people (and that’s not necessarily a good thing). It also means that their image process probably isn’t well established, so their ability to provide a cohesive gallery may be lacking.

Good + Cheap = Not Fast – a good photographer usually has a process as to why they’re able to create such beautiful images. Sometimes you can get lucky and find someone who doesn’t know they should be charging more, but don’t expect it to be a quick process.

And if you want good, cheap, and fast – good luck. That combo doesn’t usually exist in any industry – much more in a small business like photography.

So tell me, which two are most important to you?
