With the recent explosion of the digital camera market and smart phones that take amazing photos, so why hire a professional photographer?
1. A smart camera does not make a smart photographer. Owning a high quality digital camera does not make someone an amazing photographer. Good camera equipment will help the average consumer up their photography game. However, a professional photographer brings knowledge, an artistic 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 in less-than-optimal circumstances. Difficult lighting and action shots can be challenging 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 know how to gather guests quickly and easily while making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera.
4. The end result: Professional photographers edit and retouch images. They can design beautiful finished products like albums, custom prints and canvases, for example. Your best moments deserve just that—the best. Go pro!
