Photographed an Event… But NONE of the images turned out!

Dear Stefanie Shutters

How do you respond to a client who isn’t happy with the pictures and then asks to buy your SD card to get all the pictures from the event?  I don’t really want to do that, but I’m not sure what to say.  The event was a family party and we did formal pictures outside and then I went in and took some pictures during the party itself. The outside ones were fine but the inside ones were dark and blurry. I gave her the best of what I was able to capture but I didn’t have enough light to get anything good. I’m a beginner and I just need some advice!

Event Client Wants More Time for Same Price

New Dreams Photography

Another client who wants to negotiate pricing – this time for a birthday party event.

Should the photographer take the counteroffer in order to avoid losing the event altogether?

Or should she negotiate further… or negotiate at all?
