Improved cell phone cameras and the explosion of consumer DSLRs has created a resurgence in photography where suddenly everyone is snapping applying filters, and living a fantasy appearance. These semi-automated habits cause some to go so far as to call themselves “professional photographers.” Does having a professional mechanical toolbox in my garage make me a professional auto mechanic? A professional in any domain needs to have successfully completed serious coursework and apprenticeship, and enjoyed the mentoring of at least one seasoned professional.
Since all photography is not equal, when it comes to your special day–or any significant event for that matter,– wouldn’t it be a terrible judgement to trust your cousin, your aunt, or a friend who dubs herself a photographer “to capture the moment?” The wise thing to do would be to seek out a professional with an extensive print portfolio, interview them, and examine their packages/collections and compare cost, and payment terms. There should be added value in their experience, clarity of information they provide and the terms of the services. If they pressure you, walk away. After all, you want crystal-clear and creative images that not only chronicle your day but also draw you closer to your partner and rekindles your appreciation of your relatives and friends. It’s a lifetime investment. Let’s go pro!
