You might have already found that there are a lot of photographers out there and that we all offer different experiences, at different price points.
The most important thing you can do is find a photographer whose style you love and that you feel comfortable around. Be sure to make sure their images make you smile and that you love the way they edit. Then it’s important to get in touch and make sure you still get a great feeling from them. After all, you are trusting them with some very important memories!
The second most important thing is to understand that you can hire a photographer that will show up, snap a few photos, and leave it at that. OR, you can hire someone who plans your session in advance, has a vision for your photos, understands what you love about your family so dang much, helps you feel prepared, has local knowledge of the area and knows the best locations, is great with your kids, makes grandpa laugh, then makes everyone tear up over their beautiful images.
Which experience sounds better to you?
