Log into to your facebook account and guess what you see? 15 new photographers just joined facebook and want your business. This is becoming the trend if you will and everyone is quick to jump on the bandwagon. As a professional my self this becomes a battle of quantity over quality. I picked up my first camera at the young age of 6 and fell in love from the word go. I will turn 40 this year and only 2 years ago decided to shoot full time. I have taken literally tens of thousands of photographs looking for the right feel. Yes the digital age is here and does make things a little easier to create photos but you still need to be an artist not just a hobbyist to run a succesful business that keeps your clients coming back for more. I am by no means claiming to be the best in the industry as there are thousands and thousands of great professionals out there but you simply dont want to trust your once in a lifetime wedding, senior, newborn etc session to just anyone with a "Digital Camera". The professional photographers use DSLR cameras designed for professional photoraphy, with changeable lenses, memory cards, detachable flashes and so on not a point and shoot camera from your local Wal-Mart or an iphone or Ipad etc. We also use professional imaging software designed specifically for what we do and not online free software from picnik. Yes we also have a facebook page to keep in touch with our clients as well, but you can order right from this very webpage any photo you see straight from one of the nations leading photography labs and know that you will be getting only the best in the industry.
Just keep all of this in mind when a professional photographer gives you a price quote for your one of a kind session. We go the extra mile to make our clients happy for many years to come. Our clients come back to us time after time for every event in their families lives and we have a relationship that only grows. When shooting weddings we use 2 photographers no matter how big or small the venue so we can capture everything. Most of our weddings have a minimum of 300 photos to choose from on a simple wedding to hundreds more with an all day event. Again thats why the pros charge more. Our average wedding from consult to planning to shooting the event, editing, loading all your pics to a private on line album for viewing, sitting down with you to order them and then delivering them can go anywhere from 40-75 hours per wedding. Thats a lot of time to spend on just one event but thats why you get an amazing experience from begining to end. Just a little food for thought. There is no way you can edit these kind of events over night as many of these "New Photographers" are doing and expect mind blowing quality. So before you trust just anybody to capture your special day no matter what kind of photos you need, let the professionals show you what they do, how and why. We carry examples with us to every consult. ~Jason
