The 10 perfect questions to ensure you’ll own cherished family photographs.If you’re looking for a family portrait photographer then you’ve probably found it hard to choose between one service and another. Here are my top ten things to look for in a family photographer:
1. Do you get a good vibe off the photographer? Do you feel comfortable with the photographer? Will you be able to relax with them while they give you direction? All these things need to be considered, which is why it’s a good idea to meet you photographer first.
2. How would you rate their photographs? There’s a big difference is photographs. Are their shots good or great, are they snap shots or real gems. Look at the photographs in detail and ask yourself how they make you feel.
3. Do the photographs have an emotional element? This is important, especially when you are getting your family portrait. Newborn Photography London
4. Is your photographer passionate about photography? Most photographers are, but over time some get tired and just churn through the photographs, ask them in detail about their passion for photography and se their response.
5. Do you like their style of photography? This is also very important as you’ll be living with these photographs for a long time. Do you prefer the more candid style, or more formal shots? You should discuss this with your photographer prior to the shoot.
6. Are they up front about costs? Does the photographer tell you about the costs prior to booking, you don’t want any surprises when it comes time to buy prints. Make sure you ask about all the prices before you get started.
7. Do they say what they are going to deliver? All photographers should gave you booking dates, follow-up with email and reminders and arrive on time on the day of the shoot.
8. Do they have good reviews online? On the all reviews online are real, but have a look any way and try and ask the reviewers for feedback if you can.
9. Does the photographer take the time to understand your needs? There should always be a consultation either by phone or in person prior to the shoot so you can tell the photographer exactly what you want.
10. Are their prices competitive? Shop around by all means, get quotes from different photographers, but remember, you get what you pay for. As they say, “you pay peanuts, you get monkeys”.
