Why Hire a pro-photographer

August 15, 2019

Let’s face it, there are sooo many photographers out there to choose from. Finding an amazing  senior, wedding, family or lifestyle photographer can be daunting especially in the Michigan area because the market is full of photographers.  So why should you go with a professional photographer instead of hiring your friends daughter?  I’m here to tell you that hiring a pro makes a huge difference.  Let me count the ways.

The best Camera: A smart camera & a smart PHOTOGRAPHER are NOT the same.  It seems that everyone has a high speed, high quality digital camera , does not mean they are the best photographer.  Heck, it doesn’t even mean that they are a GOOD photographer. While ‘over the counter’ equipment DOES help, it’s only a tool and a small part of the equation. A good photographer brings artistic vision, direction and a creative eye that can’t be bought and does not come easily to everyone.

Professional PERKS:  Shooting with professional cameras and expensive lenses helps us take the best possible shots in every setting.  Professional lenses are great for capturing those dreamy , magic hour shots as the sun is setting.  Low light & movement is something that a professional photographer can handle like a boss too.  We know all the tricks to handle and capture every moment.

The final product: pro photographers will edit and re-touch images so that they turn on magical. Editing, composition and printing are such an important part of photography.  In my opinion, editing is a huge part of photography if you want pictures that capture an emotion or moment.  If you like printed photography (my fav) then most professional photographers will have an in with high quality labs.  Trust me, it makes a huge difference.  You cannot get printing on par with edited images at the big chains.
