Whether or not it is worth hiring a professional photographer is one of the questions that I get asked the most. In a day where everyone has a camera on their phone and a family member/friend/neighbour with a quality camera it's no surprise that this question's getting asked. But so often, what you put in is what you get out. Now, I'm not saying that these people can't do an awesome job; some of my favourite memories have been captured with a phone's camera or by someone who just happened to be around. The thing is, a professional can guarantee that you will come away with a set of images that you can love, use and are able to show off.
Why should you hire a professional photographer?
The handy thing about photographers, is that they have all the right equipment and they know how to use it to get the best results! The camera is just the beginning, it's the combination of the body, the lenses and of course the photographers talent that makes up a great photograph. Further than just taking a great photo, the editing process that goes on after the shoot is another thing that makes hiring a photographer worth it.
2. They work with you to get exactly what you're looking for.
There's no point getting someone to take photos if you don't end up loving the end result. Choosing a photographer whose style you love is a must, as is making sure you click with them. When you click with someone you will find it that much easier to communicate exactly what you are looking for. For us, this is why we have the pre consultation before taking any photos, to make sure we know exactly what you want!

3. They can help you turn the photos into memories on your wall.
When you get photos taken by a photographer, it is a great opportunity to show them off. Many photographers offer high quality products to ensure that you photos can be shown off in some beautiful ways. For us, the opportunity to make memories of you is something we love doing - making these memories into art is another thing we love helping you do.

4. The Small Things.
The attention to detail that a photographer captures is one of the ways that their value will show. By capturing the small moments and the little things that others miss, that get overlooked or even get taken for granted are the same things that you will be looking back on with a smile. Those moments are frozen in time and frequently prove to be the favourites later on.
5. You are actually in the photos.
The main reason for you to hire a photographer is so that you can actually be in the photos. These are images that capture a moment in time, a memory that is not only for you, but for your loved ones as well. These are the pictures that you can look back on at any time whether it's in a year with friends, in a decade with your kids, or one day, with your grandchildren. It won't just be photos you've snapped on your phone, it will be artfully created and lovingly displayed photos that capture you in your element.
Photography today is insanely popular, and I love that it's so accessible to everyone. But with the rise of Facebook albums and Instagram posts there are so many memories only remembered through a screen. Photography should be something tangible, something you look at and it brings back the memories, the laughs and the moment - not something that should be hidden on a computer. A professional can help you through getting these images off the computer and into your life!
