With nowadays digital reality more people ask themselves.
Why should I hire a professional photographer if I have a nice digital camera and can take pictures myself?
And as a professional photographer I think it’s a great possibility to take nice photos of your day to day life. But when it comes to important events in your life like wedding, pregnancy, baby birth, graduations it’s important that you hire a professional.
There are some good reasons for you
- Professional gear and equipment! The professional photographers are sure to have all professional gear, the variety of lenses (which are by the way very expensive).
For instance, something that my clients request quite often are images where the subject is clear but the background is very blurry. This is called bokeh. And you can achieve it only by using proper lense and camera setting.
The professional will always know what equipment and what settings to use to create the most amazing photos of your life milestones in any situation.
- Knowledge. Professionals have knowledge of how to get beautiful photos almost in any difficult situation. Such as low light, bright light. What about no light at all. Professional photographers know how to use an off camera flash just right, so you photos will turn out beautiful.
3. Training and Experience! Just like any professional, photographers invest lots of time and money educating themselves.
Why? Because we want to deliver gorgeous photos to our clients and for that we need to be on top of all the changes, as new and better equipment is created.
We are always participating in workshops learning new techniques to make our client’s photos the best they can be.
- Attention to detail. Your photographer will pay attention to all the details which are important to create amazing images for you. We know how to pose people to get them look nice and not awkward. We will adjust small details like dress trails, hands, hair because we see it though the camera.
- Be there! I think you should hire a professional photographer for the important events in your life because you should be in the photos with your loved ones. You should experience this privilege of a professional shoot. When you hire a professional, you session becomes your time. It’s time to enjoy life moments with you family and friends, because someone else is documenting this memories for you. Let’s be real, life moves fast. Leave behind a piece of you with those you love in images, because photographs are timeless.
