There is a ton of people out there that will take your photos so why in the world would you choose SHP? This is a great question. So we decided to put ourselves in the shoes of the client. And we came up with a few things that we liked and a few things we thought we could improve on. Here’s a few things we came up with.
- We love photography. Now, this is a great reason for choosing a photographer. As a client, You should always want to choose someone that loves what they do and has a desire to do it. You should probably stay away from people that seem to do photography because they got a camera and they might as well charge someone to take their photo.
- We are always learning new techniques. Variety is as some people say, “the spice of life” Now if you like the same things all the time, that’s ok but you are truly missing out on some other great things. The same goes with photography. We give our clients a wide variety of images to choose from. We have done this in the past and as we learn more we will offer even more. More is better!
- Personality. Now, why do you need your photographer to have a personality? Let me start by saying we are going to improve on this. Wait…What? Yes we have a personality and we believe we are likable. But from a client point of view we sometimes struggle with getting the natural smiles and feelings that we want to photograph and that our clients deserve to see. This is a great reason to choose a photographer. Choose a person that makes you feel comfortable and that you can relate to. The awkward session where you don’t want to make eye contact with your photographer much less speak to them isn’t going to provide you with the images that you desire.
Now this isn’t a complete list and we would love some more input from others but we think this is a great starting point if you are thinking of hiring a photographer.
