My name is Lorenzo Ross and I am a full time, five star rated, professional and experienced wedding photographer. I was born and raised in N.C. I am a"very detailed" educated and friendly people person. I have a love and passion for the art and photography and that’s why I'm the best fit to be your wedding photographer.
First off, my background in photography stemmed from my mother and father who were both photographers. My mother went to college for photography and my father learned hands on, which he later started his own photography business. I was inherited the love of photography from my parents and when I got older I also attended college and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. My photography education along with working side by side with my father as his apprentice and my hands on experience and over the last five years has taught me many photography skills. These skills include an in depth understanding of camera settings, photography lighting, camera lenses, computer photo editing and more.
I have taken my experience and skills in wedding photography and traveled all over the country taking wedding photography pictures and meeting all types of exciting people. For instance, I frequently traveled outside of North Carolina where I currently live, to another state to photograph a wedding that turned out amazing. When the bride and groom received their edited pictures, they were very impressed with the high quality level of in depth detail that was captured of all the precious moments in their wedding album.
I really enjoy working with a wide variety of people and cultures in wedding photography because it gives me an opportunity to learn about different cultures and traditions. For example, I have worked with African American, Caucasian, Latin American, Asian, and Indian cultures. I once did a wedding for a Jewish newly wed couple and learned about their exciting ceremony tradition.
I have a detail process when working with new customers. I will first read over the clients profile to get an understanding of what they want and need for their wedding photography pictures. Secondly, I contact the customer online and let them know that Im interested and provide my information for them to research my credentials. Lastly, if they want to move to the final step, I advice the client to contact me directly to discuss the event in more detail.
I also would like to touch upon my people skills which are very important skills to have as a wedding photographer. Im a very friendly person whose fun, approachable and easy going. Im flexible and able to work with a wide variety of wedding party guest such as brides, grooms, best man, maid of honor, officiants, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and more. For example, I once photographed a wedding with seven bridesmaids, seven groomsmen, a flower girl, and a ring bearer. Although this is considered a mid size wedding party, by using my social people skills, I was able to direct the entire wedding party in different locations around the venue and create amazing wedding poses. For instance, we took pictures near lakes, trees, and flower beds outside the venue, and inside the venue, we took pictures near the windows, decorations, and lighting.
The final thing I want to discus about myself is the price chart that I like to follow when quoting customers a cost for my services. Before I discuss my prices, I want to clarify that I perform my wedding photography services for the love of the art of photography and not the profit. The first package is set at an affordable $800 and the most popular wedding photography package is only $1000. Both package involves me photographing the entire wedding and all its wonderful moments such as the ceremony and reception.
In conclusion, I hope all this information in my profile introduction has given you an opportunity to learn more about me as a wedding photographer. I briefly touched upon my background, experience, skills, and love of the art of photography.
