With the recent explosion of the digital camera market, and even smart phones that take amazing photos, why should you go with a professional photographer?
A smart camera does not always make a smart photographer. Just because your friend, co-worker, or relative may have a high-speed, high-quality digital camera, does not mean he/she will automatically be an amazing photographer. While good "over-the-counter" equipment does help the average consumer to up their photography game, a professional photographer brings an artistic vision, approach and creative eye that can't be bought at the electronics store.
Shooting with full-frame NIKON cameras and professional equipment helps us take the best shots, even in less-than-optimal circumstances. Low light, nighttime and even high speed action shots can be tricky for the amateur shutterbug. But shooting in all kinds of conditions has given us the know how to capture every moment.
The end result: As professionals we can also edit and retouch images and design beautiful finished products like albums, custom prints, canvases and more. Your best moments deserve that professional attention.
Pre-Consultation: This is definitely one of the most fun parts of the process. Check out Pinterest for inspiration on location, poses, props and general style. Start thinking about your personal style and what you are looking for in your session.
Consultation: Ask questions. Look through our portfolio and figure out what approach you'd like to see in your session and final images. If you've found great inspiration, bring prints or screen shots along!
We will discuss how you intend to use the images - "save the dates", Christmas cards, invites, artwork, framing, etc. - and help you refine the message that you are looking to convey with your session. After we determine a location, we'll confirm a date and time. Based on that information, we can help you finalize apparel, props and poses.
The Shoot: The day is finally here! Have fun and relax! Our job is to make you look your best in the final images - we've got that covered. Your job now is to just have fun!
