With the recent explosion of the digital camera market, and even smart phones that take amazing photos, why should hire a professional photographer?
1. A smart camera does not 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 is an amazing photographer. While good “over-the-counter” equipment does help the average consumer up their photography game, a professional photographer brings an artistic vision, knowledge, approach and creative eye that can’t be bought at the store!
2. Professional equipment perks: Shooting with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Canon EOS R helps me 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 pros know all the tricks to capture every moment.
3. Posers: Ever tried to corral multiple friends and/or relatives—including a few wild kids—for a big group shot? Or need a little inspiration for your own special portraits? Professional photographers can help—and will know how to get guests together quickly and easily while making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera.
4. The end result: Professional photographers can also edit and retouch images and design beautiful finished products like albums, custom prints, canvases and more. Your best moments deserve just that—the best. Go pro!
