What’s the number one thing you look for when you’re searching for the perfect photographer? Is it price, style, location, personality? If you’ve been looking for a photographer you’ve probably realised that it can be a little overwhelming at times. So, I’m here to help you in your search with my 5 best tips on finding the perfect photographer!
Every photographer’s personal style is unique. It’s important to take a hard look through their gallery & make sure their style speaks to you. What you don’t want to think is “Oh, they’re good, but I’d like them to do more of *insert pinterest list*.” You should be able to show up to your session & completely trust them to capture you honestly, through their vision
It might be tempting to choose the photographer who charges the least, but often this lower price reflects a lack of skill & experience. Photographers charge what they’re worth & what is required to run a business. You don’t need to break the bank to afford a quality photographer, but you should be willing to invest a fair amount to ensure you get the best possible result.
I do think it’s important to feel comfortable in front of your photographer. Usually personality is found through the text on their website & social platforms. Follow them for a while & see if they have a personality that resonates with you.
The last thing you want is someone who is unorganised & not dependable. There should be a little leeway for unexpected circumstances on both sides, but you do want someone who values their customers enough to remain professional in all settings. A good indication of this would be their client reviews.
5. THE EXPERIENCE.
From the day you book to final delivery should all be a seamless & relaxing experience for the client. Some photographers take extra good care of their clients (ME!) & being able to completely trust your photographer should be number one on your list. You should be excited to work with them & leave feeling nothing but taken care of.
