As we all know, the advent of digital photography has led to a saturation of the photography industry, it is filled with individuals thinking they’re photographers; more people are trying to do-it-yourself every day.
The result is more people taking bad pictures than ever before! We get calls on a weekly basis from new clients who have been somewhere before and had a terrible experience with one of these so called “professionals.”
When you hire a professional photographer, you’re not just hiring a person with a more expensive camera than your Aunt Joan. You’re hiring someone who knows how to make you look awesome, using an artistic eye, an ability to put the subject at ease, and the technical skill to give you a riveting image that everyone will notice. You’re hiring someone who can take your vision of yourself or your family, and mold it into something eye-catching, beautiful, and new. Professional photographers are artists, great portraits DO NOT happen by accident, and of course these amateurs will get lucky on occasion, but are your memories worth risking? Even if you come out of it with mediocre portraits at best, wouldn’t you rather have an image of your loved ones that takes your breath away?
