A Guide To Choosing The Right Photographer For You
Hello and Welcome! If you’re new here, you’ve probably landed on a few websites already and wondering what all of the differences are in professional photographers and how to find the best one for you and your family’s needs. Here’s a guide to choosing the right photographer for you.
Here are a few tips!
Does the photographer’s style match what you’re looking for? The best photographer in your city may be just that, but if you don’t love what they do and how they do it, they aren’t the best fit for YOU! Alternatively, if you love a photographer’s style, asking them to change various things for your session can result in a different outcome than what you see in their portfolio. Is there a photographer with a style your heart instantly falls in love with?
Key Point: If you love a photographer’s work, allow them to have creative control to achieve the same for you.
Who will help you with clothing? Do you prefer a photographer to make recommendations, help you shop online, or be hands off entirely with clothing? If you’re unsure what to wear and how to dress your family for the best photographic results, hiring a photographer that helps can be a significant relief.
Key Point: If you don’t know what to wear. Search for a photographer that can style your family.
What kind of artwork or products are you hoping to end up with after your session? Does your home have wall space in which you would like to walk by your portraits multiple times a day? Would your kids adore seeing their mom and dad snuggling them in their bedroom? Do you want the entire story of your session in an album to sit down and flip through for years to come? Whatever products you love, make sure your photographer offers the best in those items. Photographers seek out the best professional products looking for just the right pieces to incorporate into their product line.
Key Point: Make sure your love what your photographer offers to their clients.
Overall, how does a photographer make you feel when you visit their website and correspond with them? Are they excited to work with you? Are they prompt in their responses? Are they professional? Do you trust them to be consistent in what they create so that your images will be just as amazing as what you see on their website? Do they have experience and expertise in their chosen niche?
Key Point: Being 100% confident in your choice of photographer renders a beautiful experience and natural confidence in front of the camera.
Am I the right photographer for you? Maybe! I’d love the chance to chat more with you and find out.
Am I not the right photographer for you? That’s okay too! I want my clients to be 110% happy with their experience and images, and I hope that you use these tips to measure other photographers you might be looking at to find the one that’s just right for you!
