Here is a sample event proposal that I drafted after being asked to photograph a college graduation.
Please note that I would never EVER ever use this prices again!!!
(Request a session with me to figure out why. <== I’m serious about that.)
A former colleague from University of Phoenix became employed by Everest College. She also happened to be a photography client of mine, so when her employer needed a photographer… guess who she called? ME! (Note how these things work. This is why EXCELLENT customer service is SOOOO important!!! TIP: Be PERSONABLE!!!)
Prior to requesting my services, they brought me in for a very formal meeting at their campus where I met with their administration while we negotiated terms.
Here is my follow up email:
Thank you again for considering my services for your event! It is an extreme honor to be asked to cover such a monumental occasion for your school as well for the students!!!
I have been in contact with my partner, and we are available for the graduation. We are ironing out pricing specifics to see if we can work out a feasible quote for you.
I will be in touch shortly!
Here is what I sent 4 hours later:
