Why Hire a Professional Photographer?

With the digital age in its prime, everyone has a camera on their cell phone. Why would you want to hire a professional photographer if you can just snap away yourself?

There are so many different answers to that question, I’ll go through just a few of them.

But first “Let me take a selfie!”. I don’t know about you, but I am typically not in the picture. ¬†Unless I impose on a random stranger walking by to take it. Do you ever walk around with your phone or your camera and realize that you have tons of pictures of your kids, but not any with you and your kids? Me too. In fact, I rarely have my pictures taken with my kids, (unless we’re taking selfies!). I sometimes hope that one day my husband will catch the shutter-bug and start snapping away at us!

The more important reason to hire a professional photographer is that most photogs spend a lot of time and money and training in the art of capturing a moment. A fresh newborn, A child’s laugh, the love of a parent, a secret between friends-your photographer has had actual training (hopefully) in not only creating a moment, but using light, aperture, post processing, & editing to help create a lasting one. When you hire a professional, your photographer has invested time and money into mentoring and training on how to properly get the shot right. Then will spend a decent amount time editing those images of your family.

Making sure your image is perfect so that you can have it displayed as beautiful wall art is a priority.

It’s true, you can take really cute pictures on your cell phone. However, the resolution of the pictures would very grainy if you wanted them enlarged. Additionally, your photographer uses a professional lab when it comes to printing your products, and while you maybe able to get them printed at Tesco or Asda (Giant or Walmart for my US friends reading this), you are paying for quality you can trust. You just spent good money for quality pictures, why cheapen them by going to Asda? When you do go with a bargain site, you may get a decent print, your photographer has chosen a quality photolab and calibrated their screens to the labs output. I’ll write more on this topic later.

And if nothing else, you deserve it! You really do!
